Ertz surprisingly established himself as one of the more dependable fantasy tight ends through seven weeks, and his absence vacates six targets per game in the Arizona offense. That opens the door for yet another young tight end in Trey McBride to potentially claim that workload. McBride was a second-round pick in the 2022 draft and has been doing his best to challenge the veteran Ertz for snaps this season; with Ertz now out of the picture for the immediate future, McBride should have no trouble getting the necessary playing time to be considered as a realistically viable option in Week 8. With the eventual return of Kyler Murray still on tap in the coming weeks, the situation can only get better around McBride, who should absolutely be picked up off of waivers in leagues where he’s still available.
