Description: Philadelphia tight end Brent Celek is dealing with a shoulder injury, but was out at practice on Monday.
Insight: Celek had 57 catches receptions for 684 yards last season, but is in a shared situation with James Casey and rookie Zach Ertz. The fantasy value for any of the three is limited.

Description: Philadelphia tight end Brent Celek is apparently thought of as the "blocking" tight end by coach Chip Kelly, according to Bob Ford of philly.com.
Insight: Celek had 57 catches receptions for 684 yards last season, but is appears James Casey and rookie Zach Ertz will do most of the receiving work in 2013. Tight ends by committee may work for the Eagles, but fantasy owners will have to avoid all of them.

Description: Philadelphia tight end Brent Celek, who didn't play in Thursday night's matchup against Cincinnati after suffering a concussion, practiced on Monday and said he should be able to go in Week 16, according to Geoff Mosher.
Insight: Celek has 51 receptions for 602 yards, but just one TD and has dropped too many balls this season. He hasn't put up double-digit points since Week 2 and there are better tight end options out there.

Description: Philadelphia tight end Brent Celek won't be available for Thursday night's matchup against Cincinnati after suffering a concussion Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Insight: If the Eagles were playing on Sunday, there would have been a chance for Celek to play but the short week just doesn't give him enough recovery time. Expect him back for Week 16's game against the Redskins.

Description: Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek took advantage of the Ravens secondary after an injury to SS Bernard Pollard to haul in eight balls for 157 yards.
Insight: Celek's 62 receptions for 811 yards and five scores in 2011 were low-end fantasy-worthy starter numbers, but injuries made him questionable to fantasy owners. That may change if he can stay on the field and get into the end zone a few times.
 
8/4/2012 12:49:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek will return to practice on Saturday after missing nine days with a mild MCL sprain.
Insight: Celek's 62 receptions for 811 yards and five scores in 2011 were low-end fantasy-worthy starter numbers, but all these injuries are worrisome. Its no wonder the team has talked with Visanthe Shiancoe (signed with NE) and Jeremy Shockey.

Description: Eagles tight end Brent Celek was injured on Thursday, a mild MCL sprain. In itself that's not the end of the world, but he also had offseason hernia and hip surgery.
Insight: Celek's 62 receptions for 811 yards and five scores in 2011 were low-end fantasy-worthy starter numbers, but all these injuries are worrisome. Its no wonder the team has talked with Visanthe Shiancoe (signed with NE) and Jeremy Shockey.

Description: If Eagles tight end Brent Celek is completely healthy from off-season hernia and hip surgery as the latest reports have claimed, he could have low-end fantasy starter value in 2012.
Insight: After not being a part of the offense in 2010, Celek was a borderline fantasy starter with 62 receptions for 811 yards and five scores in 2011. Celek appeared to have finally earned the confidence of quarterback Michael Vick. With a renewed DeSean Jackson and talented Jeremy Maclin on the outside gathering most of the defense's attention, Celek could have another solid season.
 
5/15/2012 3:50:00 PM
Description: Eagles tight end Brent Celek will be limited in OTAs by hernia and hip problems, but should be ready by training camp.
Insight: Celek was a borderline fantasy starter with 62 receptions for 811 yards and five scores in 2011 as Michael Vick rediscovered his tight end after ignoring him the previous year. Tight end is a talent-rich position in the NFL these days and Celek won't be a star but could have use in a shared situation.

Description: Celek had a career-high 10 receptions for 97 yards against Minnesota on Tuesday night.

11/22/2010 10:00:00 AM
Description: Celek was not targeted on Sunday night against the Giants.
Insight: Celek is a complete non-factor with Michael Vick under center, and can be dropped in most leagues if there are better options available in your league. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/16/2010 10:02:00 AM
Description: Celek had just two catches for eight yards against the Redskins on Monday night.
Insight: Celek's role in the Eagles' offense is limited with Michael Vick at the helm, so he is hard to rely on as a weekly fantasy starter right now. (RapidDraft.com)

Insight: Celek has yet to have a big game this season, but Kevin Kolb looking likely to be back under center for the Eagles for a little while may benefit him going forward. (RapidDraft.com)
