Description: Eagles tight end Zach Ertz appeared to injure an oblique after catching a ball in the first quarter on Sunday, but was back on the practice field Monday.
Insight: Ertz and the Eagles play a huge game at Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. He hasn't lived up to expectations this season as he's been limited to certain packages and not an every down tight end.

Description: Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is one of the most frustrating fantasy tight ends in the league.
Insight: The Eagles coaching staff hyped up Ertz in preseason to be the next Jimmy Graham. Although that may be an exaggeration, there is certainly a lot of talent there, but Chip Kelly rarely calls his number. Ertz received two targets and made one catch for four yards in Week 9.

Description: Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is becoming one of the team's go-to-guys in clutch situations.
Insight: He is a low-end TE1 that can provide some excellent value as he's averaging 81.5 ypg through the first two contests. The Eagles are using multiple tight end formations that allowed Ertz to be on the field 76 percent of the time.

Description: Eagles tight ends coach Ted Williams told the Philadelphia Inquirer that Zach Ertz is "one of the best route-runners I've ever seen."
Insight: Fellow tight end Brent Celek remains the starter, but Chip Kelly used two-tight end sets 20 percent more often in the last eight games of 2013 than in the first eight games and should continue to use more this season. Celek has also developed into a great blocking tight end, so at the position, Ertz should see a majority of the targets. He is a low-end TE1 that can provide some excellent value and upside in a late round.

Description: Sheil Kapadia of Philadelphia Magazine says that Eagles tight end Zach Ertz is going to be the team's most utilized receiver in the red zone this season.
Insight: The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder had five TDs in the last nine games (including playoffs) as a rookie. The Eagles have plenty of options for Nick Foles to throw the ball to and a run-heavy offense, so Ertz' fantasy value will be touchdown-dependent.
