Draft note
by John Paulsen
Going backwards, Ertz has finished TE5, TE2 and TE3 over the last three seasons. His targets dipped from 7.3 per game in 2018 to 5.9 per game last year, which is my main concern about his outlook in 2020. The Eagles added Jalen Reagor, Dallas Goedert continues to progress, and DeSean Jackson should be back, so there are more mouths to feed in Philly. If Ertz slips into the late-fifth/early-sixth, he’ll be a value, but I no longer feel confident enough in his workload to recommend him as a third-round pick.

PHI TE Zach Ertz - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Zach Ertz has been one of the best tight ends in the NFL over the past several seasons. That should be the case in 2020. Ertz is the Eagles No. 1 target in the passing game. He had 135 targets with 88 receptions for 916 yards and six touchdowns. He averaged 14 fantasy points per game last season which made it three straight seasons. His quarterback stayed healthy in 2019 which obviously helps any receiver. The Eagles focus their offense around their talented tight ends which is another reason Ertz has so much value.

Fantasy Downside
Ertz will be 30 this season although there are no signs he will slow down at this point in his career. And although there is little doubt he is the top tight end on Philly, Dallas Goedert's presence will take targets away from Ertz is certain games. Even though his 2019 numbers were good, he fell back from his record-setting 2018 season.

2020 Bottom Line
Ertz is a top-five fantasy tight end again in all formats. Expect around 82 catches for 870 yards which means he will be slightly down from last season. We don't expect as many targets in 2020, but Ertz will still be Carson's Wentz's No. 1 passing game option. He has an ADP of 39 which is right where he should be taken. He isn't at the same level as Travis Kelce or George Kittle, but just a tier below.
