Fantasy Football Week 12 TE Rankings: Dallas Goedert Shines, Zach Ertz to Return?

Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings Week 12

Getty Zach Ertz #86 of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Welcome to our Fantasy Football Tight End Rankings for Week 12 of the 2020 NFL regular season. The much-maligned Evan Engram returns from a bye and still remains a top-12 scorer at the position. Jordan Akins looks to be emerging in Houston, as the Texans TE is fresh off a six target, five reception, 83-yard outing (season-high). Plus, Zach Ertz’s return to the Eagles’ lineup appears to be imminent, what does that mean for Dallas Goedert’s fantasy outlook? Let’s take a look.

Tight End Outlook Week 12

Zach Ertz (TE7) returned to practice this week for the Eagles, but wasn’t healthy enough to suit up come game time. Dallas Goedert (TE5) stepped up in Ertz’s continued absence, putting forth the fourth-highest scoring output by a TE in Week 11. Goedert has now seen 12 targets over the past two weeks and is clearly Carson Wentz’s favorite target at the moment, as Travis Fulgham fades into the abyss.

There’s a good chance Ertz returns to the lineup this week, and if he does he is immediately re-inserted as a top-play at a position lacking fantasy consistency. Yes, he did score below double-digits in four of his six games this season. Yet, Philly has been able to better incorporate two TE sets in their gameplan, as Richard Rodgers has scored in double-digits in back-to-back games playing second-fiddle to Goedert. If Rodgers can accomplish said feat, I’ll take my chances with Ertz.

This week the Eagles take on a Seahawks team that is actually quite stout against the TE position. With that said, they are highly susceptible to pass-catchers overall, allowing a league-high 343.7 ypg through the air. Regardless of position, Goedert and Ertz are options 1A and 1B for the Eagles’ passing game when healthy.
