Saturday Update: Goedert was not activated off injured reserve, so it looks like he’s not going to play in Week 15 for the Eagles against the Bears. Managers who have Goedert in lineups will have to look elsewhere for a tight end.

Thursday Update: Goedert was able to return to practice this week. He says that he is trending in the right direction to play this week. It’s scary to think that the Eagles’ offense can get better than it has been, but Goedert would certainly give them a boost against the Bears on Sunday.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ tight end Dallas Goedert is eligible to return from injured reserve this week and it looks like he has a good chance to do so, per NFL Network’s Jeff McLane. Goedert hurt his shoulder in Week 10 and was put on injured reserve. His 21-day return window will start this week and he’ll get a chance to play against the Bears. If he is unable to play this week, he appears to be locked in to play the following week.

Goedert has been one of the few bright spots at the tight end position this season, as has caught a ball on 43-of-52 targets for 544 yards and three touchdowns through 8 games and change.

Fantasy football implications for Week 15

Goedert has played too well to sit in his first game back unless we hear he’s going to be limited. But, if he’s playing, I believe he’ll be ready to go in his usual capacity.
