News: Ertz (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against Washington. Impact: Ertz practiced fully all week, so his availability for Sunday was never in any question. His matchup with Washington is a good one on paper, as Washington's coverage is weak at the safety position.(RotoWire, )

News: Ertz (knee) practiced in full Wednesday. Impact: Ertz is taking full advantage of his targets this season, gathering in seven catches (on 11 targets) for 163 yards and a touchdown. The output is good for Top 10 billing among tight ends so far this season, a far cry from his average draft position. As the week continues, his status for Sunday's contest against Washington should receive clarity.(RotoWire, )

News: Ertz caught four passes for 86 yards on six targets in Monday's 30-27 win over the Colts. Impact: Ertz also dropped a pass in the red zone, albeit on a poorly thrown ball by Nick Foles on what should have been an easy completion. After logging 53-of-87 offensive snaps last week, Ertz seemed to play a similar percentage in Monday's game. Meanwhile, fellow tight end Brent Celek dropped his only target in the end zone. Ertz is clearly a better fantasy option than Celek, but there's still plenty of competition for Nick Foles' attention.(RotoWire, )

News: Ertz had three catches on five targets for 77 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jaguars. Impact: Ertz caught passes of 26, 25 and 26-yards, with the middle one a third-quarter touchdown catch that brought the Eagles to within a field goal, after they trailed 17-0 at halftime. Ertz is a very capable receiver, although Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper, Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy all finished with more targets. That is likely to be the case for much of the season, with Ertz's fantasy impact fairly dependent on touchdowns.(RotoWire, )
