He’s not better than any of these guys anymore.
Then there’s Jonnu arguably.
I’m not even sure if Ertz is even the best TE on his own team anymore.
Then there’s Pitts who’s projected to come in take over the league.
Well sure, if you consider one year with the ghost of Carson Wentz while playing injured to be his level. I don't.
I think he's still the 1163 and 916 guy from the two previous years and thus only behind Kelce, Kittle and Waller for sure and you can argue where he sits in the next 3. But certainly not behind Jonnu Smith, Tonyan or Fant.
Ertz had more yards per game than Smith last year playing injured.
