Zach Ertz has been on a roll. He was pretty unreliable in the beginning of the season, but has stepped up big in recent weeks. Since Week 11, he leads all tight ends in targets, receptions and fantasy points (PPR). In an offense lacking weapons, Ertz has become the top option for Carson Wentz. With the volume of attempts Wentz has had, Ertz has been a very safe play. Since Week 9, he’s had 3 11+ target games, and has been top 10 in scoring in six of the last seven games.
The Giants have allowed the 12th most fantasy points to TEs, but more importantly allow the 7th most receptions to TEs, which plays right into Ertz’s game. In this game earlier in the year, Ertz caught all 8 of his targets for 97 yards. Start him with confidence this week, and let’s hope he can help bring you a fantasy championship.
