Dallas Goedert was on pace for a career year with the Philadelphia Eagles. He had 700+ yards over just 12 games. It was a definite shot at 1,000+ yards in a season. Unfortunately, he suffered a groin injury and missed five games. That decimated any shot at a career season or top-five finish among tight ends in fantasy. Goedert only played 12 games, but they were a terrific twelve games. This year, he’s set up to position himself as a top-five dynasty tight end, especially since he will be with the Eagles and Jalen Hurts for a long time.
2022 Season Recap
Goedert played in 12 games last year and had 55 catches on 69 targets for 702 yards and three touchdowns. He did fumble once but averaged an extremely healthy 10.2 yards per catch. However, he was a catching machine, catching a career-high 79.7% of his targets. Had Goedert been healthy enough to play in all 17 games, he would have put up 98 targets, 78 receptions, 995 yards, and five touchdowns, and that would’ve been enough for a top-six finish. He should get there this year.
2023 Season Projections
Goedert is a lethal tight end set up in a pass-happy offense with a solid quarterback. He’s been used often in the red zone and has developed a strong chemistry with Hurts. As mentioned above, he was on pace for a massive season for his standards before injury. Should Goedert stay healthy, there’s no reason why he can’t reach this level or higher. The Eagles truly only have three passing weapons beyond the running backs. That means that Goedert will get a ton of targets and chances. He’ll do well with them.
Goerdert is easily a top-12 tight end this year. He could find himself in the top five for the first time. Regardless, if you’re in a tight-end premium league, there are very few tight ends you could do better with. Goedert has a very high ceiling and a very safe floor. There are zero worries when it comes to Dallas Goedert this season.
Long-Term Dynasty Outlook
Goedert is right in the middle of his prime. He’s 28 years old and is on an elite offense. There aren’t five better tight ends to own in dynasty long-term right now. I’d want Goedert over Kelce long-term. Kelce has the next two years, but Goedert has the next five easily. I’d easily trade a late-first-round pick for him. In tight-end premium, he’s worth a first-round pick in general. You know you’re getting a dominant tight end that consistently puts up points. He’s dealt with a lot of injuries but has played at least 15 games in three of his five seasons. That’s a safe bet to make.
If you’re rebuilding, you can also rebuild with him, though I would hold him until later in the season. Once a team needs a tight end, sell him for a much higher price. Either way, at least, Goedert is a TE1 for the next five to six years.
