|No other team in the NFL had more tight end touchdowns and red zone targets than the Eagles. This was, in large part, to the massive number of injuries sustained by the Philadelphia wide receiving corps.
Flash forward to 2020, and you have a wide receiving corps that is already dinged up with Alshon Jeffery possibly starting on the PUP, DeSean Jackson entering his 13th season and a rookie in Jalen Reagor who will not have a full offseason to build rapport with Carson Wentz.
Those factors will likely once again make Wentz lean heavily on his tight end duo of Dallas Goedert and Zach Ertz. The latter is the higher targeted player who will cost significantly more in drafts, while the former is a solid value who presents top-3 upside should Ertz go down.
Let's just hope Goedert can avoid any more sucker-punches in bars from now to the start of the season.

Eagles getting playmakers back on offense
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Oct 31, 12:55 pm
|The Philadelphia Eagles are getting some reinforcements for their Week 8 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, as the team announced on Saturday that they have activated five players off of injured reserve. TE Dallas Goedert fractured his ankle against the Bengals Week 3, and has been out since. WR Jalen Reagor will provide the Eagles' offense with some playmaking ability. (Philly Voice)|
FFToday's Take: Both Goedert and Reagor will hopefully jumpstart the offense in a plus matchup against the Cowboys. Goedert is in the TE1 discussion with Reagor being a Flex option.

Eagles TE taking "important step" in return to practice field

|The Eagles on Wednesday morning activated the 21-day practice window for tight end Dallas Goedert, the first important step to his returning to game action. Goedert has been on IR with a fractured ankle since Sept. 29. (NBC Sports)|
FFToday's Take: Goedert will immediately be a plug-n-play TE with Zach Ertz already sidelined and Richard Rodgers offering moderate value.
| Dallas Goedert expected to miss a couple weeks|
Small fracture in his ankle
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Sep 29, 10:15 am
|#Eagles TE Dallas Goedert has a very small fracture in his ankle that won’t require surgery, per source, but he’s expected to be out at least a couple weeks. Another blow to Carson Wentz’s supporting cast. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Goedert has become a low-end TE1 this season thanks to the lack of weapons on the outside for the Eagles. DeSean Jackson is dealing with a hamstring injury leaving John Hightower and Greg Ward to see more opportunities. TE Zach Ertz should be heavily targeted in Week 4 against the 49ers.
| Jalen Reagor out with thumb injury|
Torn UCL in his thumb
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 23, 2:52 pm
|Sources say hope is Jalen Reagor can be back after the bye week November 15
That would mean he could miss 7 weeks with torn UCL in his thumb
Tough injury for a WR with impact of catching the ball on his thumb (John Clark on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: This is the same injury Drew Brees had last season. Brees ended up missing five games. It's safe to say this is going to be a lost season for the rookie. Expect the Eagles to continue featuring tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert. DesSean Jackson is the only Eagles' wide receiver fantasy owners should be targeting.
