UPDATE: Zach Ertz is ACTIVE

UPDATE: Zach Ertz is pushing to play, and Ian Rapoport hears it is probably going to happen. Ertz is worth starting at less than 100 percent, but Dallas Goedert is also worth considering even with Ertz likely playing.

The Philadelphia Eagles travel to face the Miami Dolphins in a must-win game, and they have some question marks on offense. Tight end Zach Ertz has been declared questionable for the game due to a hamstring injury. Ertz was a DNP on Wednesday and Thursday, but then got in a limited workout on Friday.

Fantasy football analysis: Eagles TEs Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert

We’ve heard reports of optimism about Ertz for Sunday, but it sounds like he’ll be a game time decision. The upside to all this is that the Eagles play at 1:00 p.m., so you’ll know early on if your star tight end is available.

If Ertz does not play, Dallas Goedert is a must start in most Week 13 fantasy formats. If Ertz does play, Goedert is still a decent play — maybe not in eight or ten team leagues, but in 12+, a matchup with Miami and a banged-up Ertz offers more value for Goedert.
