Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ertz is not a good blocker and is a tier below Tyler Eifert at tight end, but he's a good athlete who will double as a motion blocker and a receiving threat down the seam for a Philadelphia offense that wants to strain and confuse opposing safeties with an equal threat to run or pass each play. Brent Celek's potentially superior skill set might block Ertz's ability to make a fantasy impact, however.

2013

A second-round pick in this year's draft, Ertz finds himself behind Brent Celek and probably James Casey as well. Not known for his blocking, Ertz has enough athleticism to be a threat down the seam. As with most rookie tight ends, he's a long shot to be anything more than an occasional contributor in the offense, however.
