Eagles TE Zach Ertz finally targeted

CSN Philly - [Full Article]

Week after week, Eagles QB Carson Wentz went into games focused on getting TE Zach Ertz the ball, and week after week, they failed to connect.

That finally ended Sunday, when Ertz had eight catches for 97 yards, the fifth-biggest game of his four-year career, in the Eagles’ 28-23 loss to the Giants at MetLife Stadium.

“Overall, it doesn't really matter how many times I touch the ball,” he said. “If we lose it’s all for nothing.

“I did think Carson (Wentz) and I took a step forward between the two of us. Which is good to see.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Ertz had been a non-factor up to this week. He's still not trustworthy until we see more consistency, but for those struggling at the position Ertz may be worth a grab. The Eagles sure seemed to make it a point to target the TE in Week 9 but we have to see if that continues.
