Zach Ertz Fantasy Football 2013 Profile: TE Still A Few Years Away From Stardom
Name: Zach Ertz
Team: Philadelphia Eagles
Position: Tight End
Years Pro: Rookie
Draft stock: (Dropping) Don’t fool yourself; Ertz is a few years way from giving the Eagles the production they need. Rarely do second-round picks like Ertz mature in just their first year at the NFL level. Instead, fantasy football owners are waiting for the day when Brent Celek hits the road and Chip Kelly‘s offense is being run through Ertz.
2012 fantasy impact: Hey — Ertz was an incredible talent at the college football level in 2012 as he finished the year with 898 yards receiving, which was first among all collegiate tight ends. However, many dismissed Ertz success saying he was simply a “product of the system” considering Coby Fleener was just as good while with the Stanford Cardinal the year prior.
Best-case scenario: Celek falls in the depth chart and Ertz lets his play do the talking with five touchdowns in his rookie campaign and nearly 700 yards from scrimmage.
Worst-case scenario: Philadelphia stashes the second-round pick away with the idea that Celek is still a weekly starter at the NFL level. Ertz also struggles in pass protection to start his career, which lands him a spot on the bench.
Where you should draft him: Ertz is a low-risk low-reward player as rookie tight ends rarely make an impact in terms of fantasy football. Therefore, wait until the 15th round or so to pull the trigger on a play-maker like Ertz.
