Zach Ertz Going On Injured Reserve

Tuesday, October 24, 12:39 PM

The Arizona Cardinals are placing three-time Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz (quadriceps) on Injured Reserve on Tuesday with a quadriceps strain that he suffered in the Week 7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, according to sources. Ertz will now miss at least four games, but the plan is for him to return this year. Fantasy managers in deeper leagues with an IR spot available can look to stash the 32-year-old veteran, but if you have other needs, don't feel compelled to hang onto him. Ertz has 27 receptions on 43 targets for 187 yards and one touchdown through seven games in 2023. With him sidelined for at least four games, Trey McBride becomes an interesting waiver-wire pickup heading into Week 8. He's currently rostered in just 2% of Yahoo leagues.

Evan Engram News

Evan Engram Logs 49 Yards In Win Vs. Texans

Sunday, November 26, 10:19 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram secured five receptions on a team-high eight targets for 49 yards in a victory at Houston on Sunday. That is now a league-leading 82 targets without a score this season for the veteran tight end. Engram came very close to securing that slippery touchdown, but Lawrence missed him multiple times in the end zone unfortunately. Regardless, it was another safe PPR output from Engram, who now has seven top-10 weekly finishes at his position this year, which is tied for second in the NFL. Next week brings a Bengals defense that was just shredded by Pat Freiermuth.
