Brent Celek had one catch for seven yards in Week 13 against the Cowboys.

Celek continues to play ahead of Zack Ertz, but wasn't a factor in the pass game. He's yet to score a touchdown this season, and has just 26 catches for 272 yards.
Nov 27 - 9:25 PM

Brent Celek caught five passes for 48 yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Titans.

Celek picked up a few extra looks as Zach Ertz battled an oblique issue. He remains a team leader and high-snap player due to his blocking, but runs like a Mack truck with a bad engine and has zero touchdowns on the year. Leave him on waivers even in a plus matchup against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.
Nov 23 - 5:06 PM

Brent Celek caught one pass for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss at Green Bay.

Hopefully, you didn't chase Celek's fluky 5-116-0 line from Week 10. He's a blocker in this scheme and now has 20 catches in 10 games.
Nov 16 - 8:23 PM

Brent Celek (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 11 game at Green Bay, as expected.

Celek dinged his ankle late in the Monday night win over the Panthers, the game in which he went off for a 5-116-0 fluke. He'll be fine for his usual blocking role Sunday. There are no surprises in the Eagles inactives: QB Nick Foles, S Earl Wolff, CB Jaylen Watkins, C Julian Vandervelde, T Dennis Kelly, WR Jeff Maehl and DE Taylor Hart.
Nov 16 - 2:59 PM

Brent Celek (ankle) is probable for Week 11 against the Packers.

He'll be good to go for his blocking duties. He's not a fantasy option, even after exploding for a 5-116-0 line against the Panthers last Monday night.
Nov 14 - 12:43 PM

Brent Celek (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 11.

Coming off his best game of the season, Celek will be fine for Sunday's matchup with the Packers. Even with four teams on bye, he can continue to be left on waiver wires.
Nov 12 - 1:39 PM

Brent Celek caught five passes for 116 yards in the Eagles' Week 10 win over the Panthers.

He drew six targets. Celek entered the game with just 90 yards on the season, so obviously he needs to be left on waiver wires. But it was a good night for Celek, who puts in all the dirty work at tight end for the Eagles. He could have had a better night had he not been tackled at the one-yard line in the third quarter.
Nov 11 - 12:22 AM

Brent Celek (back) is listed as probable for Week 9 against the Texans.

Celek was limited earlier in the week, but will be good to go for Sunday's game. The Eagles' in-line tight end has 12 catches through seven games.
Oct 31 - 8:35 PM

Brent Celek dropped his lone target in the Eagles' Week 2 win over the Colts.

It would have gone for an easy one-yard touchdown, but the ball clanked right off Celek's fingers. He's only in the lineup thanks to his willingness to block.
Sep 16 - 12:40 AM

Brent Celek caught three passes for 15 yards in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Jaguars.

Celek was on the field for every "12" set and the majority of "11" formations. But Zach Ertz did sprinkle in for some single-TE snaps, and one of them resulted in a 25-yard score. Celek, a blocking complement to Ertz, is well off the fantasy radar.
Sep 7 - 5:48 PM

Brent Celek caught two passes for 41 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

Both of Celek's catches were tough-handed grabs down the seam. Although Celek appeared to be cramping Zach Ertz's style, Ertz played as many, if not more, snaps. Celek remains an extremely reliable pair of hands in the middle of the field, but is just a mid-range TE2 for fantasy purposes. He's a more valuable player on the actual gridiron.
Aug 21 - 10:40 PM

Brent Celek may have to accept a contract restructure to stay with the Eagles.

Celek was a valuable blocker in the Chip Kelly offense this season, consistently excelling in his prescribed role and operating as a true team leader. But he's owed $4 million in 2014, a high number for a guy that caught just 32 passes and set a six-year low in targets with 50. Blocking tight ends don't get that kind of coin. Trent Cole and Jason Avant are also candidates for restructure.
Jan 6 - 9:37 AM

Brent Celek caught two passes for 16 yards in Saturday's Wild Card loss to the Saints.

Celek was a coach's favorite and continued to play just about every snap in his seventh season with the Eagles, but his role changed dramatically under new coach Chip Kelly. The plodder was mostly a blocker as he saw just 50 targets, a low-water mark since he got 38 in 2008. It makes sense, as Zach Ertz was drafted to be the pass-catching tight end. With Ertz figuring to take a big leap in year two, Celek's role will be reduced even further in 2014. He won't be a fantasy option.
Jan 5 - 2:19 AM

Brent Celek had three catches for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 17 win over the Cowboys.

Celek caught a 35-yard pass and scored from 14 yards out on consecutive plays at the end of the first half. He tied Jason Avant for a team-high five times in the passing game. Celek finishes with 32 receptions, 502 yards, and six touchdowns in his first season in coach Chip Kelly's offense. He'll continue to be used in a committee with Zach Ertz in Saturday's Wild Card game against the Saints.
