4. Zach Ertz
Ertz is the most silent and productive tight end in the game. You never hear much about him because of the fact that he is in Philly and because he doesn’t demand attention. Carson Wentz has not been close to how great he was a couple years ago, but Ertz has managed anyway.
The Stanford grad put together 916 receiving yards and six touchdowns last season on only 88 catches. That was a huge drop off as the tight end caught 28 more passes the previous year. This is of course a direct result of the lack of a supporting cast around him. It’s hard to manufacture production all by yourself.
However, in Madden your rating isn’t based off who is throwing the ball to you most of the time, but rather, what you can do on your own. And Ertz can do plenty. This will sport him a 90 Madden 21 rating at the start of the year, but will likely go down as his potential is halted as long as Wentz is behind center.
But if they put Jalen Hurts in the pocket or if Ertz is miraculously traded, it may shake things up a bit.
