It was only a matter of time, but Zach Ertz is out of Philadelphia. The Cardinals will be sending 6th round cornerback, Tay Gowan, and a 5th round pick in return.
, per me and @MikeGarafolo. At long last, Ertz on the move.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 15, 2021
A salute to Ertz, an x-factor in the Eagles only Super Bowl run, unfortunately did not have a great ending with his time in Philadelphia. I don’t think fans could ever be mad at him. Ertz had a lot of injuries and also not the best relationships with the coaching staff, but he for sure loved Philadelphia.
Talk about a big time move for the Cardinals though. If Zach Ertz can stay on the field, you’re talking about maybe a Top 3 offensive in the NFC. Just another weapon for Kyler Murray, who may be in line to win the MVP as of now as well.
For the Eagles, Dallas Goedert, will now be the guy at the TE position. He already did emerge as the TE1, but Ertz was already lurking. Now he can settle in with no real threat behind him and will be a mid-tier TE1 in fantasy.
The same goes with Ertz now in regards to fantasy. He will be a weekly fantasy play at the TE position for the remainder of the year if he can stay healthy, and fantasy owners should pounce on him now as he is only rostered in 48% of leagues on the ESPN platform.
