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 TE Dallas Goedert has looked ready to make a second-year leap into stardom in 2019, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Fantasy Spin: Goedert, who caught 33 passes for 334 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie after being chosen 49th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, will remain behind Zach Ertz on the Eagles' depth chart as a sophomore. He could prove to be a viable TE2 in deeper leagues and would be an instant must-add should Ertz miss any time.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end coach Justin Peelle said that tight end Dallas Goedert's development this offseason has been "phenomenal." It should allow Zach Ertz to move around more often this year. In his rookie season in 2018, the 24-year-old Goedert caught 33 passes for 334 yards and four touchdowns in 16 games. He has plenty of potential, but his ceiling will be limited as long as Ertz stays healthy. The Eagles also have a very crowded backfield and plenty of wide receivers that will require targets from quarterback Carson Wentz. Goedert has red-zone appeal as a touchdown-dependent TE2 with upside, but don't get too excited.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert said his second season in the NFL has been easier than his rookie year. 'Now I can just focus on things I want to get better at rather than learning the playbook,' Goedert said.
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert stood out in the team's organized team activities on Tuesday and was catching everything thrown his way. The team's top draft pick in 2018 caught 33 passes for 334 yards and four touchdowns in his rookie season and has emerged as the team's best blocking tight end. Goedert's goal in the offseason was getting bigger, faster and stronger. He added muscle, reduced fat and feels faster. The Eagles have made it clear that they want to feature him more in the offense in 2019, so Goedert could have more opportunities. Still, it might be a stretch to think that he'll become a TE1 in his second year while having to battle for targets with Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor, DeSean Jackson and the running backs.
Philadelphia Eagles TE Dallas Goedert caught 12 of his 33 passes as a rookie over the final four games, and Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com believes Goedert's usage should increase in 2019 after the coaching staff has an entire offseason to figure out more ways to give him the ball.
