Zach Ertz : Security guard | Injury | Fantasy | Stats
Zachary Adam Ertz (born November 10, 1990) is an American football tight end for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League (NFL).
|Born:||November 10, 1990
|Height:||6 ft 5 in (1.96 m)|
|Weight:||250 lb (113 kg)|
|High school:||Monte Vista
|NFL Draft:||2013 / Round: 2 / Pick: 35|
He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft and later won Super Bowl LII with the team over the New England Patriots.
He played college football at Stanford, where he was recognized as a unanimous All-American.
Ertz attended Stanford University, where he played for the Stanford Cardinal football team from 2009 to 2012. He redshirted the 2009 season.
In 2010, he played 13 games and had 16 catches for 190 yards and five touchdowns.
He had two receptions, including a touchdown, in the Orange Bowl against Virginia Tech that year.
Being a security guard during an NFL game is a hazardous gig. One man found that out on Sunday, as he was absolutely annihilated by Arizona Cardinals tight end Zach Ertz.
As Ertz went up in an attempt to grab a fourth down pass from Kyler Murray, he tumbled to the turf and slid through the back of the end zone as the ball fell harmlessly.
Unfortunately, on the slide, Ertz took out an unsuspecting security guard whose eyes were on the stands, not the field.
That’s just incredibly dangerous. Having security personnel on the field and not facing the action is a recipe for disaster.
According to those in attendance, the security guy did not look OK after the incident. Here’s hoping he’s alright.
Zach ertz Injury
Ertz got in a limited practice on Friday and is listed as questionable. He is likely to be a game-time decision and in a later game. Have another tight end ready in fantasy.
Ertz was at the start of practice on Friday, per Josh Weinfuss. We’ll see what his status is when the injury report comes out, but it looks like he’ll be a game-time decision at this point.
Arizona Cardinals tight end Zach Ertz is still dealing with an ankle injury, and with the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs right around the corner, we’re still waiting to know for sure whether or not he’ll be able to play.
Ertz suffered the injury early in training camp, during the first week of August. He’s been sidelined since then.
Obviously, Ertz is a veteran, so missing preseason play isn’t anything unusual, but the fact that he hasn’t been able to practice in such a long time is a concern.
The last update on his status was Wednesday, when head coach Kliff Kingsbury said it would be a close call as to whether or not Ertz will be ready for Week 1.
Zach ertz fantasy
Ertz is expected to play this Sunday after being limited by an injury to start the season.
He only caught two of his four targets for 14 yards in the opener but found the endzone.
The Raiders defense gave up 279 receiving yards last week, but nine different pass catchers helped total that number.
Ertz has the benefit of being a redzone target with quarterback Kyler Murray.
Even if he doesn’t tally a ton of yardage, he should still get redzone looks which help his upside.
I think Ertz is worth a start this week and is a backend TE1.
He should see more targets this week with Rondale Moore sidelined with an injury.
On January 8, 2013, Ertz announced, through a statement released by Stanford, his decision to forgo his senior season and enter the 2013 NFL Draft. He was ranked as the second best tight end prospect in the draft by ESPN Scouts Inc.
