| Sport Top stories | Usa news

Dallas Goedert (reserve / COVID-19 list) is not on the final injury report, but for all intents and purposes, we will call it “questionable” (perhaps “doubtful”) heading into the sixth week of Eagles football. showdown against the Buccaneers. News of his COVID listing was announced on Tuesday and, to be cleared, he will need to submit two negative COVID tests prior to the game. That said, it hasn’t been ruled out yet (and technically won’t be on the final inactive list), so fantasy football owners will be frantically looking for updates before starting for the first time. week.

We will continue to update this article with news about Goedert until the official active / inactive report comes out on Thursday around 6:50 pm ET. For the latest fantasy updates, follow us on Twitter @ SN_Fantasy.

Will Dallas Goedert play Thursday night?

Goedert was placed on the reserve / COVID-19 list on Tuesday and, given the short turnaround time, it seems unlikely that he will be able to deliver two negative tests 24 hours apart. It’s not impossible, though, as Eagles coach Nick Sirianni implied Wednesday when he answered a question about how Philadelphia would proceed “if” Goedert is out. However, since he extolled the virtues of third member Jack Stoll in his reply, that seems to suggest that Goedert will sit down. If Goedert plays, he must start against the Bucs’ generous defense.

WEEK 6 STANDARD RATINGS:

If you’re out, include Zach Ertz as one of this week’s Top 10 Plays in any format. After all, Ertz has already been outscoring Goedert on targets, and with full control of the main tight end spot, he should get a lot of looks. Tampa Bay has given up the sixth-most points to fantasy tight ends, including allowing a touchdown to Tyler Higbee, Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry. Ertz has already received six red zone targets this season, so the numbers tell us this is a good opportunity for him. If Goedert plays, he has already drawn eight targets from the red zone, so the same feelings are for him.

It’s worth noting that both guys attract initial consideration even if Goedert is active. Both have been relevant to fantasy and the showdown can’t get much better. We moved Ertz to tight end No. 7 in PPR and the standard leagues when the news of Goedert came in, but before then we had them both in the top 15. If Goedert is out and you don’t trust Ertz or you don’t have the ability to list you, our rankings, and Week 6 waiver collections can point you in the right direction for another streamer.

One good thing about the TE position is that you don’t have to think twice about where you start them in your lineup. Usually you want to avoid putting Thursday Night players in the flexible spot, but that’s not a factor here.
