News: 6 days agoErtz caught eight passes for 88 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets against Seattle on Sunday.

Spin: The Arizona passing game appeared in peril heading into this game due to the absences of Kyler Murray (ankle) and DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring), but Ertz stepped up and abused the Seattle defense even with Colt McCoy at quarterback. It won't be as easy for Ertz to stay consistently involved when Hopkins returns, but at the very least the tight end has shown that he has enough in the tank to step up to a leading role if any of the other pass catchers are missing.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: Ertz is entering his ninth NFL season in search of a rebound after struggling with injuries, inefficiency and a shaky supporting cast during a very disappointing 2020. Ertz had ripped off five consecutive top-nine fantasy campaigns (including three straight top-four seasons) prior to missing five games and falling to 31st in 2020. Ertz played 81% of the snaps and handled a generous 19% of the targets during 11 active weeks, but 30% of balls thrown his way were off target (second highest), which led to a position-worst 49% catch rate and horrific 4.6 YPT (second worst). Ertz is "only" 30 years old, so a rebound is possible, but it's also reasonable to think his days as a TE1 are over, especially with Dallas Goedert likely ahead of him on the depth chart. Consider Ertz a mid-range TE2.
