How much confidence can fantasy managers have in Zach Ertz?

It may seem like Ertz should be a go-to contender after tying a career-high with two touchdown receptions against Seattle, but is this just an anomaly or something fantastic managers can count on for the sake of it? ‘to come up ?

Advanced metrics lean towards the anomaly. Ertz has only posted 2.7 red zone routes per game over the past three weeks, a total that ranks tied for 31st among the tight ends in that category during that span. Part of the increase in his goal has to be attributed to the fact that DeAndre Hopkins is not in the lineup for all of these games.
