Eagles Beat: The breakout season is on for TE Zach Ertz

Philly Mag - [Full Article]

Pretty much everyone who watched Eagles TE Zach Ertz this summer was predicting a breakout year. And through two games, those outlooks seem on-point. He has seven catches on 10 targets for 163 yards. All seven grabs have netted first downs. Six of the seven have been for 20 yards or more. No one in the NFL has more 20+ grabs than Ertz so far.

His 23.3 yards per reception is also a league-high.

Fantasy Impact: 

The article does a good job of using pictures from All-22 film to break down how Ertz is making plays downfield. He is in the top 9 in both standard and PPR formats and has played 67 percent of his team's snaps. He is tied with LeSean McCoy for the 3rd-most targets (11) on the team, ahead of both Riley Cooper and Jordan Matthews. At this point, he looks like an every-week starter.
