Zach Ertz Has Shown "More Speed Than Expected"

Monday, July 8, 4:28 PM

Washington Commanders tight end Zach Ertz was once one of the most productive players at the position. While his numbers have been on the decline over the last few years, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports that he looked good in offseason activities this summer. "Ertz, 33, showed more speed than expected in practices," Standig wrote. "Injuries are more concerning than the three-time Pro Bowler's remaining talent." The 2013 second-round pick could be heavily relied on by rookie quarterback Jayden Daniels early in his NFL career, especially while rookie tight end Ben Sinnott makes the transition to the next level. Ertz is unlikely to possess TE1 upside at this stage of his career, but he might produce mid-range TE2 numbers, making him worth rostering in deep PPR setups. The former Stanford Cardinal enters 2024 in 12th place on the all-time receiving list by a tight end with 7,434 yards.

Donald Parham Jr. Leads The Chargers In Receiving In Week 18

Monday, January 8, 12:15 AM

Los Angeles Chargers tight end Donald Parham Jr. led the team in receiving yards in a Week 18 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs backups. Parham was targeted six times, making five catches for 83 yards. Parham has always had tantalizing upside thanks to his size and athleticism, but injuries and inconsistency have left him as a fantasy afterthought despite all of that. The Chargers roster is sure to look quite different come Week 1 of next season, but Parham is unlikely to carve out a key role outside of his usual red zone involvement.
