The Philadelphia Daily News said there is a "good chance" Brent Celek leads the Eagles' tight ends in snaps this year.
Just as he has every year since 2009. Chip Kelly reportedly loves Celek, and he offers the Eagles more in the running game than Zach Ertz. Recovering from groin surgery, Ertz may not even suit up early in the season, and when he finally gets back on the field it will again be in a backup role to Celek. Ertz is nothing more than a TE2 flier at this point. Sep 3 - 11:21 AM

According to Philly Mag’s Sheil Kapadia, "it's impossible to overstate" how much Chip Kelly loves TE Brent Celek.

That's high praise for a player who contributed just 32 catches last season. It's also not what Zach Ertz owners wanted to hear. Ertz has 1,000-yard potential but is losing out on snaps because of Celek's superior run-blocking. Ertz's ceiling may not be as high with Celek in the mix, but he’s a still player to watch in fantasy, especially with starting quarterback Nick Foles returning from a collarbone injury. Celek will continue to eat up snaps as a blocker in 2015.

Brent Celek caught one pass for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 win.

It was Celek's first touchdown of the season. Relegated to a strict blocking role, he finishes his fifth NFL season with just 32-340-1. Celek will still likely be back at his $4.725 million salary because he's a valuable on-field piece outside the box score.

Brent Celek was held without a catch in the Eagles' Week 14 loss to the Seahawks.

Celek drew only one target. He enters Week 15 the owner of a 26/272/0 receiving line.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 08:12:00 PM

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.
Thu, Nov 27, 2014 09:25:00 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.

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.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 08:23:00 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.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 02:59:00 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.
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 12:43:00 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.
Wed, Nov 12, 2014 01:39:00 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.
Tue, Nov 11, 2014 12:22:00 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.
Fri, Oct 31, 2014 08:35:00 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.
Tue, Sep 16, 2014 12:40:00 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.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 05:48:00 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.
