Zach Ertz returning to practice on Friday

Eagles TE Zach Ertz is dealing with a hamstring injury that could sideline him for Week 13. The team is optimistic, but he’ll likely be a game-time decision. We break down the fantasy football implications.

The Philadelphia Eagles travel to face a miserable Miami Dolphins squad in Week 13, and it is a matchup that bodes well for a scuffling Eagles offense. However, there are questions as to Zach Ertz’s availability for this game.

Ertz did not participate in the the last two days of practice due to a hamstring injury that may have occurred as much as two weeks ago, according to some reports. The good news is that Ertz is expected to do some work on Friday, according to Adam Caplan. The bad news is head coach Doug Pederson said it would be some running and the team is remaining cautious with him, according to sportscaster Jeff Skversky.

Fantasy football analysis: Eagles TEs Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert

Ertz is likely to be listed as questionable when the final injury report comes out, making him a game-day decision. If he sits, Goedert will get the start and be a must-start this weekend in all fantasy football formats. If Ertz plays, Goedert is still worth a start in deeper leagues.
