7. Dallas Goedert, Philadelphia Eagles
Goedert’s prognosis for the 2021 season isn’t just about his own talent; it is also very much about fellow tight end Zach Ertz, as well as second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts. When Ertz wasn’t on the field last season, Goedert looked like the real deal more often than not. Although he only finished as the 20th-best tight end in fantasy football, that is in large part due to the injuries he sustained. Goedert only started nine games last season, and suited up for 11 in total. He caught 46 balls for 524 yards and three scores.
If Ertz is out of the picture in the Philadelphia, Goedert should have plenty of opportunities on a team that is likely to be playing from behind more often than not. Although Hurts is only entering his second season in the NFL, the young quarterback showed plenty of poise throughout last season. Goedert could even establish himself as Hurts’ top target.
