Brent Celek caught one pass for 25 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss at Minnesota.

OC Pat Shurmur continues to single out Brent Celek for his blocking.

Celek was an average (at best) blocker early in his career, but his embraced his new role in Chip Kelly's offense. Along with a dominant and healthy offensive line, the tight end is a big reason LeSean McCoy leads the NFL in rushing. Of course, this role has taken Celek off the fantasy radar completely as he's averaging 1.9 catches for 26.7 yards on the season. When the Eagles want to throw to their tight end, they bring in rookie Zach Ertz.
