Sproles: Eagles TE Zach Ertz is 'about to be a superstar'

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Eagles RB Darren Sproles had some nice things to say about TE Zach Ertz.

"He has great hands, man," Sproles said last week, via CSN Philly. "His hands and his route running are just great, really. He's about to be a superstar."

Ertz has earned praise from coaches and teammates for his impressive showing in OTAs and minicamp.

Fantasy Impact: 

Ertz was the #13 TE in both standard and PPR formats despite only playing half of the Eagles’ snaps in his second year. Ertz played mostly (73%) on passing downs, so if his playing time is going to increase, a majority of the additional snaps are likely to come in run formations. Still, there’s upside with Ertz if he begins to see starter’s snaps. The Eagles lost their leading receiver -- first DeSean Jackson and then Jeremy Maclin -- in back-to-back seasons, so there will be opportunity from a targets standpoint.
