Dallas Goedert Player Overview

What You Need to Know:

  • Goedert took over the TE position for Philly in 2020 and ranked among the league’s most heavily targeted TEs when healthy.
  • He drew 18.4% of targets in his 9 full outings. Just 4 TEs beat that share for the season: Darren Waller, Travis Kelce, Mark Andrews and Evan Engram. Zach Ertz garnered 17.6% target share over his 11 games, 15.1% in the 5 games Goedert played and didn’t leave early.
  • Goedert has improved his ranking in Pro Football Focus’ yards per route run each year: from 20th in 2018 among 54 TEs with 20+ targets, to 16th in 2019 and then a tie for 9th last season. (He actually dipped from 1.64 YPRR in 2019 to 1.62 last year, though.)
  • Goedert finished 2020 ranked 18th among all 125 targeted TEs in PFF receiving grade; 11th among 55 TEs who saw 20+ targets.
  • New Eagles HC Nick Sirianni spent the past 3 years coordinating a Colts offense that ranked 4th, 4th and 12th in TE target share -- with Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle and Trey Burton as the position’s target leaders.
  • Each of those Colts teams placed a TE among the top 11 in PFF’s YPRR, including Mo Alie-Cox at 5th last season.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Goedert has played well through 3 seasons. That includes ranking 10th among TEs in PPR points per game in 2020 -- despite leaving 2 of his 11 contests early and playing with a struggling QB. That’s right where he finished the previous season in total points, even with Zach Ertz producing top-5 fantasy numbers. Ertz has since fallen behind Goedert and might even still get traded before the coming season. Either way, Goedert should benefit from a new HC with a TE-friendly past and a pass-catching corps with little proven beyond its TEs. Goedert should present a top-12 floor among fantasy TEs, with upside into the top 5 if Jalen Hurts can improve and Ertz moves on.
