Eagles TE Zach Ertz caps disappointing season
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) This was supposed to be a breakout year for Eagles tight end Zach Ertz, who closed 2013 with four touchdown catches in his final six games, including the playoffs. But Ertz didn't live up to expectations, partly because Brett Celek's superior blocking limited Ertz's snaps.
Ertz caught four of six targets for 56 yards Week 17 against the Giants. He finished the season with 58 catches for 702 yards and three scores, producing one 100-yard game.
Ertz is signed for two more seasons.
More to come for Zach Ertz?
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/21/14) In setting a franchise record with 15 receptions Week 16 at Washington, Eagles tight end Zach Ertz, as you might expect, also led the team with 18 targets, 10 more than his previous season high, which he had only reached once. In other words, he hadn't been a significant part of the Eagles passing game prior to Week 16.
Of course, 18 targets is an unfair comparison for anyone. It's the second-most any player has had in a game this season. It was made possible by quarterback Mark Sanchez attempting a season-high 50 passes in a game where neither team had trouble moving the ball. Of course, the Redskins in particular have struggled against tight ends this season, allowing the fourth-most Fantasy points per game to them.
Here's the problem for Ertz: The Eagles didn't win. This tight end-heavy approach wasn't some game-changer for their offense, and two talented wide receivers in Jeremy Maclin and Jordan Matthews took a back seat because of it.
Obviously, if you're hurting at tight end -- and it's a position that isn't quite 12 deep in Fantasy -- you could give him a look for Week 17 against Dallas, which also struggles against tight ends, but more likely than not, this performance was an aberration.
Eagles TE Zach Ertz breaks franchise record with 15 receptions
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/20/14) Eagles tight end Zach Ertz broke a franchise record with 15 receptions in Saturday's loss to the Redskins in Week 16. His 15 receptions were the most by any player this season.
Ertz was Mark Sanchez's primary target, hauling in a career-best 15 of 18 targets for 115 yards in a 27-24 defeat. Eight of his 15 receptions came in the fourth quarter, including a 16-yard grab -- his longest gain of the day.
Ertz has 44 receptions for 646 yards and three touchdowns this season. He will look to end the year on a high note in Week 17 against the Giants.
Eagles' Jeremy Maclin leads team with 98 receiving yards Week 15
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/15/14) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin caught four of his five targets for a team-high 98 yards in his team's 38-27 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.
Maclin's highlight came courtesy of a bad decision by his defender, who went for an interception despite having no help behind him. Maclin hauled in the catch and then followed a teammate blocking the one defender remaining between him and the goal line but was dragged down at the one-yard line on the 72-yard play.
Tight end Brent Celek racked up 52 yards while catching four of his six targets. Rookie Josh Huff received just one target but hauled it in across the middle and weaved his way toward the sideline for a 44-yard gain. Tight end Zach Ertz contributed three catches for 32 yards, while wide receiver Riley Cooper managed 17 yards on two receptions. Rookie Jordan Matthews recorded just one target but didn't catch it.
The Eagles will look to rebound against the Redskins in Week 16.
Eagles' Zach Ertz leads the way Week 14
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/7/14) Eagles tight end Zach Ertz led the way Week 14 against the Seahawks.
Ertz gained 39 yards on two receptions during the contest. A large chunk of his yardage came on a 35 yard touchdown reception from Mark Sanchez in the third quarter. Ertz was targeted just three times during the game.
He'll look for more Week 15 against the Cowboys.
|Zach Ertz was drafted in the second round of the NFL Draft in 2013 with the expectation he would be a difference-making tight end. He played OK as a rookie last year with 36 catches for 469 yards and four touchdowns, but much more is expected -- starting this season. One way the Eagles could get over the loss of DeSean Jackson, who was cut and went to Washington, is to use Ertz more this year. Brent Celek remains with the Eagles, but Ertz is more of a receiving threat. We like Ertz as a breakout candidate, and he's worth drafting as a low-end No. 1 tight end with a late-round pick. Don't reach for Ertz, but if all the elite options are gone, you can gamble on him as a starter and hope he lives up to his potential. If not, there are plenty of good No. 2 tight ends like Delanie Walker, Heath Miller and Charles Clay, who should be available on waivers.
