Dallas Goedert: Paces pass catchers in loss

Goedert secured seven of eight targets for 73 yards in the Eagles' 17-9 wild-card loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Analysis: Goedert unsurprisingly served as the leader of the pass-catching corps in receptions, receiving yards and targets, even with Zach Ertz (ribs/kidney) active for the contest. Goedert made an exponential leap in his second pro season, finishing with a 58-607-5 line across 15 games during the regular season in addition to Sunday's production. The 25-year-old managed to avoid peaks and valleys for the most part as well, notching at least three grabs in each of the last 11 games of the campaign. He'll now enter the offseason with an eye on making an even bigger impact in 2020, although that could prove challenging as long as Ertz is around and healthy.

Dallas Goedert: Ineffective in Week 17 win

Goedert caught four of 10 targets for 65 yards in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Giants.

Analysis: As expected with Zach Ertz (ribs) sidelined, Goedert was Carson Wentz's favorite option in the passing game, but the second-year tight end wasn't able to turn that volume into a particularly impressive performance. He's still seen double-digit targets in back-to-back games, and if Ertz remains out -- or even just less than 100 percent -- for next weekend's wild-card game against the Seahawks, Goedert figures to see a heavy workload once again.

Dallas Goedert: Headed for busy afternoon

Goedert will operate as the Eagles' top tight end Sunday against the Giants, with Zach Ertz (ribs) ruled out for the game, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Goedert has already been handling a three-down role, with injuries forcing the Eagles to rely on multi-TE formations nearly every week. He's working on a six-game streak with six or more targets, including a 9-91-1 receiving line in last week's 17-9 win over the Cowboys. Goedert is locked in as a central figure in the Eagles' passing game and could push for double-digit targets again with Ertz temporarily out of the picture.

Dallas Goedert: Grabs TD in crucial win

Goedert caught nine of 12 targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Zach Ertz missed most of the first half due to injured ribs, but the Eagles' passing game didn't miss a beat with Goedert taking his place as Carson Wentz's most trusted option. The second-year tight end is having a solid finish to the campaign, catching 33 of 45 targets for 321 yards and two TDs over the last six games, and he could see another elevated workload in Week 17 if Ertz is less than 100 percent.

Dallas Goedert: Five grabs in win

Goedert caught five of six targets for 55 yards in Sunday's 37-27 win over the Redskins.

Analysis: Philadelphia's backup tight end continues to play a sizable role in the offense with all of the team's injuries at the wide receiver position. Goedert has now totaled at least three receptions in each of his past nine games, and this was his third time topping 50 yards in that stretch.

December 15, 2019 3:13 PM EST

Dallas Goedert: Gets six targets in win

Goedert caught three of his six targets for 41 yards in Monday night's 23-17 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Goedert didn't make his first catch until the final drive of the first half and surprisingly didn't get much more involved after Jeffery was ruled out of the remainder of the game with a foot injury. The South Dakota State product did contribute to the victory, however, as his 28-yard catch in the fourth quarter helped set up the game-tying touchdown. He's now seen at least six targets in four-straight games, but his red-zone involvement continues to be hit-or-miss heading into a Week 15 matchup with Washington.

Dallas Goedert: Second-leading receiver in loss

Goedert caught six of seven targets for 66 yards during Sunday's 37-31 loss to the Dolphins.

Analysis: On a day in which Philadelphia's passing attack racked up 310 yards and three scores against the Miami secondary, Goedert ranked second on the team in targets and was one of two Eagles to exceed 45 receiving yards. The second-year tight end was actually Carson Wentz's preferred target at the position in Week 13, and he has surpassed Zach Ertz in target share over two of the Eagles' past four games. Goedert has 13 catches for 98 yards over Philadelphia's past two outings, heading into a Week 14 matchup against a Giants defense that so far this season has surrendered the fewest number of receptions (39) to opposing tight ends.

Dallas Goedert: Targeted eight times in loss

Goedert caught seven of his eight targets for 32 yards in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

Analysis: It was expected that Goedert would be one of the primary beneficiaries with Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) both out. The second-year tight end came in second on the team in targets and catches behind only Zach Ertz. While the 24-year-old set a season high in catches, it unfortunately didn't translate to many yards. Goedert will be a touchdown-dependent play Week 13 against Miami.

Dallas Goedert: Grabs lone Philly TD in loss

Goedert caught three of six targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Patriots.

Analysis: The Eagles' No. 2 tight end has carved out a consistent role for himself, finding the end zone in three of the last four games and catching at least three passes in five straight. Goedert's production has remained steady even with Zach Ertz having a couple of huge performances in the last two weeks, which bodes well for the second-year player heading into Week 12's clash with a Seattle defense that has struggled to cover TEs all year.

November 17, 2019 7:21 PM EST

Dallas Goedert: More involved in loss

Goedert caught five of his eight targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 38-20 win over the Vikings.

Analysis: Goedert finished third on the team in targets and receiving yards. He made two catches on the Eagles' first touchdown drive of the day and was the intended target on both of the team's interceptions in the contest, including Jake Elliott's fake field-goal attempt at the end of the first half. The 24-year-old more than doubled his total receiving yards on the year with the effort and will look to sustain a greater role in the offense Week 7 at Dallas.

Dallas Goedert: Held to one catch

Goedert caught one of three targets for 11 yards during Sunday's 31-6 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Goedert got in on the action late in the first quarter with an 11-yard reception. He had a second short reception called back due to penalty, but was not targeted after Philadelphia's first drive of the second half. The former second-round pick had been dealing with a calf issue since training camp and has yet to find a groove with just one score on the season and he has yet to reach 20 yards in a game. Minnesota's sixth-ranked pass defense will be a tough opponent to heat up against.

October 8, 2019 8:14 PM EST

Dallas Goedert: Gets into end zone

Goedert brought in two of three targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' 34-27 win over the Packers on Thursday.

Analysis: Goedert corralled a three-yard scoring toss with 2:45 left in the second quarter to erase a 13-7 deficit. The second-year tight end has recently been affected by a calf injury, but he battled through across two games in five days and will now have a chance at an extended layoff ahead of a Week 5 interconference battle against the Jets.

Dallas Goedert: Cleared to play Sunday

Goedert (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Analysis: After putting in a pregame workout, Goedert has been deemed ready to return from a one-game absence. It'll be interesting to see what kind of workload he'll be able to handle on his recovering left calf, but in the end the presence of No. 1 tight end Zach Ertz hinders Goedert's potential to produce.

September 22, 2019 8:32 AM EST

Dallas Goedert: Going through pregame workout

Goedert (calf) ran routes and caught passes during a workout ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Goedert's status for Week is contingent on his ability to get through the activity unscathed, but McManus noted that the tight end is wearing a sleeve on his left calf and doesn't "look 100 percent." The Eagles will make a final decision on Goedert's availability about 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

September 22, 2019 7:28 AM EST

Dallas Goedert: Improves in Saturday's practice

Goedert (calf) looked surprisingly better at Saturday's practice and is now considered a pregame decision for Sunday's game against the Lions, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Goedert is listed as questionable on the official injury report for Sunday's game. Even if he does play, Goedert's fantasy value remains modest, so long as Zach Ertz (who has been targeted 23 times in two games to date) remains healthy and available.

September 21, 2019 10:56 PM EST

Dallas Goedert: Listed as questionable

Goedert (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Analysis: Goedert was able to log a limited practice Friday, but EJ Smith of the Philadelphia Inquirer relays via coach Doug Pederson that the tight end profiles as a game-day call for Sunday's 1:00 ET tilt. In any case, Goedert's fantasy value remains modest, so long long as Zach Ertz (who has been targeted 23 times in two games to date) remains healthy and available.

September 20, 2019 12:30 PM EST

Dallas Goedert: Missing at practice again

Goedert (calf) didn't take part in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Goedert was one of four skill-position players idle Thursday, with running back Corey Clement (shoulder) and receivers DeSean Jackson (abdomen) and Alshon Jeffery (calf) also sidelined. Coach Doug Pederson previously labeled Goedert day-to-day earlier in the week, but the back-to-back absences at practice don't offer much encouragement for the tight end's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Lions. Goedert will likely need to practice in some fashion Friday to keep hope alive for an appearance in Week 3.

September 19, 2019 1:28 PM EST

Dallas Goedert: No activity Wednesday

Goedert (calf) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's estimated injury report.

Analysis: Deemed day-to-day by coach Doug Pederson earlier Wednesday, Goedert was a resident of the recovery room as opposed to being on the field with his teammates. Goedert has a pair of practices to prove his health before week's end, but the Eagles covered themselves in the event of a Week 3 absence with Tuesday's activation of Alex Ellis from the practice squad.

September 18, 2019 1:33 PM EST

Dallas Goedert: Not ruled out for Week 3

Coach Doug Pederson said Goedert (calf) is day to day, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Pederson said the same thing about all his injured players on offense -- DeSean Jackson (abdomen), Alshon Jeffery (calf) and Corey Clement (shoulder) -- even though other reports suggest Jackson and Clement will miss at least one or two games. Jeffery and Goedert might be closer to questionable for Sunday's matchup with Detroit, though it isn't a great sign for the latter that the Eagles already promoted fellow tight end Alex Ellis from the practice squad.

September 18, 2019 7:58 AM EST

Dallas Goedert: Re-injures same calf

Goedert re-injured the calf that bothered him in August, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Analysis: Goedert made it back for Week 1 and wasn't on the Week 2 injury report, but he seems to have re-injured his calf during warmups for Sunday's game against the Falcons. With Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin) exiting in the first half, the Eagles were forced to use Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor, JJ Arcega-Whiteside and Mack Hollins on practically every snap over the final three quarters of a 24-20 loss. The Eagles may need to sign another tight end -- and possibly a wide receiver or two -- before they face the Lions in Week 3.
