Six catches against Giants

Goedert caught six of seven targets for 46 yards in Sunday's 22-16 win over the Giants.

Analysis: In Jalen Hurts' first game back from a shoulder strain, Goedert has his most catches in three games since returning from his own shoulder injury. The tight end wraps up the regular season with 55 catches on 69 targets for 702 yards and three touchdowns over 12 contests, and Goedert and Hurts will both get an extra week to rest and heal with the Eagles having secured a first-round bye, and the top seed in the NFC.

Quiet against Saints

Goedert recorded three receptions on six targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith combined to account for 22 targets on Gardner Minshew's 32 pass attempts, leaving little for other Philadelphia pass catchers. Goedert still managed to turn in a respectable performance, highlighted by receptions of 18 and 15 yards in the second half as the Eagles tried to get back into the game. In two games since returning from a shoulder injury, Goedert has combined to record six receptions for 112 yards.

Posts three catches in Week 16

Goedert gathered in all three of his targets for 67 yards during Saturday's 40-34 loss in Dallas.

Analysis: In his return to action following a five-game absence due to a shoulder injury, Goedert didn't appear worse for wear, but he also ranked fifth in targets on the Eagles behind DeVonta Smith (12), A.J. Brown (eight), Quez Watkins (five) and Kenneth Gainwell (four). On a positive note for Goedert, though, no other Philly tight end was targeted, so he seems to have retaken full control of the position. He was working with backup quarterback Gardner Minshew on Saturday with Jalen Hurts (shoulder) out, so Goedert's prospects could be lifted somewhat moving forward if Hurts is able to play in Weeks 17 and/or 18.

Comes off IR

The Eagles activated Goedert (shoulder) from injured reserve to the 53-man roster Tuesday.

Analysis: Goedert appeared to have a shot at suiting up for Sunday's win over the Bears, but he wasn't ultimately activated for the contest. Now however, as Adam Schefter of ESPN reports, the standout tight end is expected to suit up for Saturday's divisional road matchup against the Cowboys. The extent of Goedert's participation in practice should hint at whether he could have any limitations in his first return to action since Week 10. With Jalen Hurts (shoulder) looking uncertain for Week 16, though, it's also possible Goedert's return could come with Gardner Minshew under center.

Not off injured reserve yet

The Eagles didn't activate Goedert (shoulder) ahead of Sunday's game at Chicago, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: After missing the requisite four games on injured reserve, Goedert was designated for return Wednesday, which allowed him to practice for the first time since he injured his shoulder Week 10 against the Commanders. It appears Philadelphia will take a cautious approach with their No. 1 tight end, though, and keep him out for one more contest, with an eye toward returning next Saturday, Dec. 24 in Dallas. In the meantime, Jack Stoll and Grant Calcaterra will continue to man the position for the Eagles.

Looks on track to play

Goedert (shoulder) didn't anything definitive Wednesday, but he took part in practice and appears on track to play Sunday against the Bears, according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Analysis: Goedert won't be included on the official injury report because he's technically still on injured reserve. The Eagles designated him for return Wednesday, opening a 21-day window in which he can practice with the team while not counting against the active roster. He'll likely be back on the roster soon enough, however, and quite possibly in time for Sunday's meeting with the Bears. The tight end has already missed the IR minimum of four games.

Resumes practicing

The Eagles designated Goedert (shoulder) for return from injured reserve Wednesday.

Analysis: The transaction opens up a 21-day window wherein the Eagles can evaluate Goedert in practice, but the 27-year-old will likely be added back to the 53-man roster well before that three-week window expires. In fact, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer relays that the Eagles anticipate Goedert will be ready to play this Sunday against the Bears, provided he doesn't experience any setbacks in practice over the next three days. Whenever he's activated, Goedert should slot back atop the depth chart at tight end, resulting in Jack Stoll and Grant Calcaterra losing out on work. Goedert's impending return will provide yet another boost to an Eagles offense that has been averaging 35 points per game during his four-week absence.

Works off to side Thursday

Goedert (shoulder) was spotted working out off to the side at Thursday's practice, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Since he's only missed three games thus far since being placed on injured reserve Nov. 16, Goedert won't be eligible to begin taking part in practice with the Eagles' healthy players until after Sunday's matchup with the Giants. Based on what he was able to do off to the side Thursday -- Tolentino notes that Goedert looked "very smooth" while running sprints and cutting around cones -- the tight end looks like he'll be ready to mix back into drills next week and potentially return from IR in advance of the Eagles' Dec. 18 game in Chicago. None of the Eagles' three tight ends (Jack Stoll, Grant Calcaterra and Tyree Jackson) have been overly involved in the passing attack in Goedert's absence the past three games; instead, No. 3 wideout Quez Watkins (shoulder) has been the main beneficiary of Goedert's vacated target volume.

Sheds shoulder sling

Goedert (shoulder) said Wednesday he is no longer wearing a sling and expects to return from IR after missing only the requisite minimum four games, and to play Week 15 against the Bears, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Goedert's recovery appears to be continuing on track and free of setbacks, so the Eagles' plan remains for him to be back on the field at the earliest eligible date, Dec. 18 in Chicago. The 27-year-old's impact on offense can't be understated, so especially as Philadelphia eyes a playoff run, the tight end's health will be one of the team's top priorities. If Goedert is indeed able to retake the field Week 15, he could also have a shot to contribute down the stretch of the fantasy season, though managers will need to account for the possibility that he's eased back into action and handles a snap count out of the gate.

Hopes to return in mid-December

Goedert (shoulder) hopes to return after the four-week minimum and play in a Dec. 18 game against the Bears, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: The Eagles placed him on injured reserve Wednesday, ruling the tight end out for at least four games. Goedert hopes it won't be any more than that but will still need to see how his shoulder responds in the coming weeks. The Eagles are left with Jack Stoll, Grant Calcaterra and Tyree Jackson at tight end.

Nov 16, 2022 12:17 PM EST

Officially moves to IR

The Eagles placed Goedert (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday.

Analysis: Goedert appeared to suffer a shoulder injury during Monday's divisional loss to the Commanders, on a play which saw him be tackled via an uncalled facemask grab. The team reportedly doesn't believe Goedert is done for the season, but the top tight end will have to miss at least four weeks now that he's been placed on IR, and he remains without an official return timetable. Philadelphia will have to rely on combination of Jack Stoll, Grant Calcaterra and Tyree Jackson (knee) to hold down the fort at tight end, but the departure of a playmaker as impactful as Goedert could notably impact the offense until such time as he's able to return.

Out indefinitely due to shoulder

Goedert is expected to miss extended time after suffering a shoulder injury in Monday's 32-21 loss to the Commanders, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The exact nature of Goedert's injury isn't yet known, nor has a timeline for a return been established, but the Eagles don't believe the tight end will be lost for the season. In Monday's loss, Goedert recorded three receptions for 23 yards and a touchdown on three targets, but he had a key lost fumble in the fourth quarter. On that lost fumble, Goedert appeared to be grabbed in the facemask by a Washington defender, but the penalty wasn't called and Goedert appeared to suffer the injury on the play in question. The Eagles are likely to offer further details on Goedert's injury in the days to come, but expect the team to turn to a combination of Jack Stoll and rookie Grant Calcaterra to fill in for him at tight end for the next few weeks.

Records TD, fumble in Week 10 loss

Goedert caught all three of his targets for 23 yards and a touchdown but also lost a fumble in Monday's 32-21 loss to the Commanders.

Analysis: Goedert gave the Eagles a 14-7 lead with a six-yard touchdown catch late in the first quarter, but Washington stormed back with 13 unanswered points in the second to take a 20-14 lead into the locker room. After Philadelphia cut the deficit to two in the fourth quarter, Goedert lost possession of the ball while being brought down by his facemask. The facemask went unnoticed but the fumble stood, and Goedert headed to the blue medical tent after the play, adding injury to insult. He returned on the next drive, but the fumble proved to be a pivotal moment in Philadelphia's first loss of the season. After finding the end zone only once through seven games, Goedert has compiled a two-game touchdown streak, which he will look to extend in Week 11 against the Colts.

Paces pass catchers in Week 9 win

Goedert brought in eight of nine targets for 100 yards and a touchdown during the Eagles' 29-17 win over the Texans on Thursday night.

Analysis: Goedert and Jalen Hurts consistently tormented the Texans' defense throughout the night, pacing the Eagles in receptions, receiving yards and targets in the process. The fifth-year tight end's catch total tied a season high as well, and the 100-yard effort was his first since Week 15 of last season. Goedert recorded his second touchdown of the season on a four-yard grab early in the fourth quarter for good measure, and he'll next take aim at the Commanders in a Week 10 home divisional clash on Monday night, Nov. 14.

Racks up six receptions

Goedert recorded six receptions on six targets for 64 yards in Sunday's 35-13 win over the Steelers.

Analysis: Goedert was extremely efficient with his targets and managed to finish tied for the team lead with six receptions, his second-highest total of the season. He chipped in long gains of 17 and 16 yards, though he failed to tally a reception of 20 yards or more for only the second time in seven games this season. Goedert remains relatively uninvolved near the end zone, though he's otherwise held a consistent role as he now has at least five receptions in four contests on the campaign.

Oct 30, 2022 7:53 PM EST

Limited to two receptions

Goedert caught two of five targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 26-17 win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Goedert was asked to stay back and block a little more than he is used to following the early departure of star right tackle Lane Johnson (concussion), which is part of the reason he finished with such a forgettable stat line. The 27-year-old was providing consistent production with at least six standard fantasy points in every game prior to Sunday's dud. Goedert's fantasy managers will have to wait until after the Eagles' upcoming bye week to see if he can bounce back against the Steelers on Oct. 30.

Oct 16, 2022 10:26 PM EST

Strong efficiency on nine targets

Goedert caught eight passes for 95 yards on nine targets against Arizona on Sunday.

Analysis: Goedert has conclusively demonstrated high-level ability as an NFL tight end and thus far in 2022 he's been highly effective for the Eagles, turning 29 targets into 24 receptions for 335 yards and a touchdown. The one issue is that his target volume is rather modest as he competes for targets against two star wide receivers, and Goedert might be hard-pressed to maintain his excellent efficiency. Regardless of the week to week fluctuation, Goedert should provide standout tight end production as a top-three pass catcher in one of the league's most productive offenses. He faces Dallas in Week 6.

Oct 9, 2022 5:04 PM EST

Gains 72 yards in victory

Goedert caught five of six targets for 72 yards in Sunday's 29-21 win over Jacksonville.

Analysis: Goedert was Jalen Hurts' second-favorite option Sunday, finishing just one target behind A.J. Brown. The 27-year-old is off to a promising start in 2022, racking up 240 yards and a touchdown on an 80 percent catch rate through four contests. Goedert remains a strong play at a shallow fantasy position against the Cardinals next Sunday.

Oct 2, 2022 3:00 PM EST

Finds end zone

Goedert caught three passes for 26 yards and one touchdown on four targets against Washington on Sunday.

Analysis: Goedert briefly left the game with a shin issue but returned shortly afterward. Goedert is a good player and like most weeks he made efficient use of his workload Sunday, but as a pass catcher he might be a tad overqualified for the target count the Philadelphia offense can offer him. At the very least it will be difficult for Goedert to draw heavy usage when DeVonta Smith (eight catches for 169 yards and one touchdown on 12 targets) and A.J. Brown (five catches for 85 yards and one touchdown 10 targets) produce like they did against Washington. If one of those two should see lighter usage in a given game then that would likely open up more opportunity for Goedert. Through three games Goedert has 11 receptions for 168 yards and one touchdown on 14 targets.

Sep 25, 2022 1:54 PM EST

Returns Sunday

Goedert (shin) has returned to Sunday's game against the Commanders, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Goedert caught three passes for 26 yards and a touchdown before leaving the contest briefly. He'll look to continue his strong play in the second half of Sunday's matchup.
