All career bests for Ertz, his 156 targets easily led all tight ends in 2018. However, looking to the future, selling Ertz after a historic 2018 may provide the most return on investment.
Finishing with a 26% target market share, Ertz’s 156 targets finished as the most recorded by any tight end in the last decade. For reference, Delanie Walker recorded a 26% target share in 2015, but he did so on 133 targets.
