Celek caught three of his four targets for 61 yards Sunday against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

It was Celek's turn to shine as the top receiving tight end in Zach Ertz's (ribs) absence after Trey Burton found the end zone last week. Burton still saw more targets (six), and both should continue to have an impact until Ertz is able to return. With an abundance of other viable offensive weapons at rookie quarterback Carson Wentz's disposal, it's tough to count on Celek for consistent production.

Celek should enjoy considerable playing time once again with teammate Zach Ertz (ribs) ruled out Sunday against the Steelers, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Celek started in Ertz's absence Monday against the Bears, and although he failed to catch a pass, his snap count increased from 49 percent in Week 1 to 74 percent last time out. While Celek was overshadowed by fellow tight end Trey Burton's five catches for 49 yards and a touchdown versus Chicago, and his fantasy upside trails Burton as well, the veteran should at least be on the field for a significant portion of Sunday's game.

Celek will start Monday's game at Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

With a rib injury in tow, Zach Ertz will take a seat in Week 2, allowing Celek to take on a significant snap count. Catching his sole pass from rookie quarterback Carson Wentz for 11 yards in the season-opening win against the Browns, Celek could prosper against a Bears defense that has given up four touchdowns to TEs in its last five games dating back to last season.

Celek logged one reception for 11 yards in the Eagles' 29-10 victory over the Browns on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Celek entered the 2016 campaign taking a clear backseat to ascending fourth-year TE Zach Ertz. However, Ertz suffered a rib injury during the contest and appears set to miss time in the short-term. Consequently, Celek likely becomes both the Eagles' top blocking and receiving tight end for the foreseeable future.

Celek caught one pass for 17 yards on three targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Signed to a three-year, $13 million contract in the offseason, Celek is one of the league's more valuable No. 2 tight ends, but it's now clear he's a distant second to Zach Ertz. Celek's role should be very similar to the one he filled last season, when he caught 27 passes for 398 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games.

Celek agreed to a three-year, $13 million contract to stay with the Eagles, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

EDGE Analysis

The deal reportedly includes $6 million guaranteed, which shows just how much the Eagles value the 31-year-old Celek, even though Zach Ertz has emerged as the team's primary tight end. Celek's days as a useful fantasy contributor may be numbered, but he's still an important part of the Philadelphia running game, with solid hands to boot.

Celek caught two passes for 38 yards in Sunday's season-ending win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Celek finished with 58 more yards and two more touchdowns than last season, and he will likely be a fair bench tight end option for the rest of his career. But Zach Ertz established himself as the Eagles' top tight end this season, taking 16 percent more snaps than Celek, and Celek's days as a starting tight end are more than likely officially over.

Celek caught one pass for 18 yards in Saturday's 38-24 loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Saturday marked Celek's fourth straight game with just one catch. He put up solid numbers for a blocking-focused veteran tight end earlier in the year, but fellow tight end Zach Ertz has asserted himself as one of the Eagles' most potent weapons. Celek's time as the team's starting tight end may be dwindling.

Celek caught two passes for 31 yards in Sunday's 40-17 loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Celek's marginalization rolls on. He is very clearly the No. 2 tight end option in the Eagles' offense at this point, and with touches going to a stable of running backs and numerous wide receivers ahead of him on the team's hierarchy, Celek is unlikely to see another big day with quarterback Sam Bradford operating the team's offense.

Celek caught one pass for one yard in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Celek continues to be pushed to the fringes of the Eagles' offense as quarterback Sam Bradford keeps gelling with tight end Zach Ertz and the Eagles' running game keeps producing. Celek is a block-first tight end who had a few big games in the middle of the season with quarterback Mark Sanchez, but Bradford likes Ertz as a target, and will likely look his way instead of Celek's as the season continues.
