Despite playing a backup role, Goedert was 20th overall in fantasy tight end scoring. He got some weekly chances and made some big plays hit rookie season. He had 10 games with multiple receptions but did top 50 yards just once. He was a solid red-zone target, getting four scores on the season. Goedert is expected to serve a similar role this season, being the top backup to Zach Ertz. Goedert is a big tight end that blocks well along the line but also can make plays in the passing game. He is a big target that does well with contested catches.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Goedert is tough play because he is a touchdown dependent player at this stage of his career. His value would be huge if Ertz were to get injured, though. But for now, consider him a low-end No. 2 fantasy receiver. He could improve a little on last year, getting around 40 receptions for 400 yards with four or five touchdowns.
Its not often that an NFL team can maintain multiple fantasy-relevant tight ends, but the Philadelphia Eagles could be added to that short list in 2019. Everyone knows about Zach Ertz, who should once again finish as a top-three fantasy tight end, but Dallas Goedert has a chance to put up solid numbers in his second NFL season. Last year, Goedert caught 33 passes for 334 yards and four touchdowns. Goederts likely to see an increase in snaps this season as the Eagles try to get both him and Ertz on the field together more, and his receiving skills give him a good shot to make the most of his time on the field. It wouldnt be a shock to see Goedert somewhere in the 500-yard range with six or seven touchdowns, numbers that arent going to put him at the top of the tight end position, but do make him a solid streaming option for fantasy owners. Of course, so much depends on the health of quarterback Carson Wentz, whose injury track record is concerning, especially with the team no longer having backup quarterback Nick Foles to keep the offense running. Theres plenty of risk to Goedert and not the top-level upside of some other tight ends, but he should provide fantasy owners with solid production and a decent weekly floor.

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert could have some sneaky DFS value in Week 11. Taking on the New England Patriots and their league-shaking defense, the Eagles as a team are expected to struggle to score and move the ball. If Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is forced to miss the game, however, Goedert could become the number two option in the passing game behind fellow tight end Zach Ertz. Nelson Agholor would be the top wide receiver option if Jeffery were forced to sit, and he wouldn't be able to lead the offense to much. Goedert is no more than a TE2 in standard formats, but could be worth a dart-throw in DFS play.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert posted four receptions for 39 yards on five targets in Week 9 against the Chicago Bears.
Fantasy Spin: Goedert had been neck-and-neck with Zach Ertz in recent weeks, in terms of production, but this one shook down like it is supposed to. Ertz had a giant game, and Goedert was a secondary option. The Eagles are off in Week 10.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught four passes in a Week 9 win over the Chicago Bears, gaining 39 yards. Goedert had solidly outplayed Zach Ertz over the past few weeks, but Ertz went wild in this one, gaining over 100 yards. Goedert was still second on the team in receptions and yards and should continue to be a key member of the passing game. Based on the number of two-tight end sets run by the Eagles, Goedert should be able to provide lower end TE1 value even while playing behind Ertz.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert will look to continue his ascension into the TE1 ranks in Week 9. The Eagles take on the Chicago Bears who, despite a very strong pass defense, can be exploited by opposing tight ends. Since Week 6, Goedert has seen just one less target than "starter" Zach Ertz, but Goedert has outperformed Ertz to the tune of 37.9 to 19.2 in PPR points. Goedert could be on his way to passing Ertz by the end of the season, and he's a lower-end TE1 play for Week 9.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert registered three receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills on five targets.
Fantasy Spin: Goedert has found the end zone in two straight games while racking up 12 receptions and 139 yards with 17 targets over the past three outings. He is carving into Zach Ertz's fantasy production, emerging as a TE2 or flex option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Eagles host the Bears in Week 9.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert scored a touchdown in Week 8. He ended up with three catches on five targets, gaining 22 yards. His touchdown came in the second quarter on a five-yard strike from Carson Wentz. It was his only passing touchdown of the game. Goedert saw more targets and gained more yards than Zach Ertz, who has been disappointing while Goedert has been moving up.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert is not a good bet to put up big numbers in Week 8. The Eagles travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills and their tough defense. Goedert led the team in receiving in Week 7 and scored a touchdown, but that's unlikely to happen again this week. Goedert is a middling option in two-tight end leagues at best and should not be started in single tight end formats.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert snag all four of his targets for a season-high 69 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 versus the Dallas Cowboys.
Fantasy Spin: Carson Wentz appeared to be locked onto the second-year tight end from the start, as he did the bulk of his damage before intermission. He scored his team's only touchdown on a beautiful high-point grab over Leighton Vander Esch from 28 yards out. While Zach Ertz's presence will obviously limit his upside, fantasy owners need to strongly consider finding a spot for him on their rosters, especially given the dearth of solid options at his position in fantasy.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert led the team in receiving in Week 7. He caught four passes, gaining 69 yards and scoring a touchdown. Goedert's score came on a 28-yard pass from Carson Wentz. Goedert was also charged with a lost fumble, however. In a game where the Eagles offense could barely do anything, Goedert was the lone bright spot. It could be more of the same types of struggles next week for the Philly offense, making Goedert a TE2 at best.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert could have some sneaky value despite working behind Zach Ertz in Week 7. The Eagles will hit the road to take on the Dallas Cowboys, who have featured a prime pass defense so far this season. Their one weak spot has been limiting opposing tight ends, so there could be enough for Ertz and Goedert to both be heavily involved. Goedert drew eight targets last week after seeing just 10 in the previous five weeks combined. He's a strong start in two-tight end leagues and a dart throw with upside in standard formats.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught five passes in Week 6, gaining 48 yards. He was targeted eight times, and was much more involved than he'd been in previous games, with Zach Ertz seeing just one more target. Goedert is about due for a "blow up" game, but his usage remains too inconsistent to be anything more than a TE2, even with how weak the position has been in fantasy this year.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert caught five passes for 48 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. He was targeted eight times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Goedert posted more yards this week than he did in his first four games and appeared to be a popular target in the passing game. His role in the passing game probably will change next week and may not be a great fantasy option.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert is a low-upside TE2 option in a Week 6 game against the Minnesota Vikings. Goedert has been mostly quiet this season, playing a supporting role behind Zach Ertz. Goedert has not been targeted more than three times in a game this season, and won't have any standard league value as long as Ertz remains healthy. For two-tight end leagues, Goedert is a depth piece at best.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert caught just one pass in Week 5, gaining 11 yards. Goedert played way behind starter Zach Ertz, and while he has the talent to be a solid tight end in fantasy, he won't see nearly enough targets unless Ertz misses time. Goedert is a wait-and-see fantasy asset, but not a consistently startable option right now, even in two-tight end leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert is only an option in deep leagues and two-tight end formats in Week 5. Even though the New York Jets Defense struggles in the passing game, they actually cover opposing tight ends fairly well. Like usual, Zach Ertz will get most of the tight end targets, leaving Goedert as a touchdown-dependent option with a low floor. He's near the back of the TE2 ranks in Week 5.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert caught two balls for 16 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 4 win over the Green Bay Packers.
Fantasy Spin: Goedert's return probably helped the running game more than anything, but he made the most of his chances with an easy TD catch. He's not worth playing at this point, but he could be worth carrying if you have a large reserve roster.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert scored a touchdown in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers. Goedert made two catches, gaining 16 yards. His score came on a short three-yard strike from Carson Wentz. Goedert is a very talented receiver, but he won't have consistent enough targets unless something happens to Zach Ertz. Goedert makes for an excellent dynasty stash or a handcuff in deeper formats.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 25, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Fantasy Spin: Goedert has not been a big part of the passing game over the first three games and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert is expected to play in Week 4, but won't be more than a desperation option in most standard formats. Even in two-TE leagues, Goedert is a risky play. Taking on a Green Bay Packers Defense that defends well against opposing tight ends, Goedert will take his customary backseat to starter Zach Ertz. Goedert is an Ertz injury away from legitimate TE1 status, but for now he's more of a handcuff than anything else.
Philadelphia Eagles CB Ronald Darby (hamstring), WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen) and DT Timmy Jernigan (foot) did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 24. RB Corey Clement (shoulder) and DE Derek Barnett (ankle) were limited. WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside (heel), OT Andre Dillard (knee), LB Nathan Gerry (calf, knee), TE Dallas Goedert (calf), WR Alshon Jeffery (calf), LB Kamu Grugier-Hill (knee) and QB Nate Sudfeld (wrist) fully participated in practice.
