Zach Ertz To Miss 4-6 Weeks

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz (ankle) is expected to miss four to six weeks after suffering a high-ankle sprain in the Week 6 loss to the Ravens. As a result, the Eagles placed him on the short-term Injured Reserve, meaning he'll be eligible to return in Week 10 against the Browns, but he could easily be out longer than that. With Dallas Goedert (ankle) potentially also out until Week 10, Richard Rodgers will become the club's top pass-catching tight end. Rodgers is worth a pickup in deeper leagues or if you're hurting at the tight end position, but he should be considered a low-end TE2 with target upside in this injury depleted Eagles offense. Ertz should be stashed everywhere, as he could return to help fantasy teams that advance to the playoffs.
