Brent Celek TE PHI 8 Months

Brent Celek caught four passes for 29 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Cardinals.

Celek's touchdown came on a goal-line play from one yard out. But when the Eagles were drawing up chunk plays for their tight ends, rookie Zach Ertz got the call. Celek is on pace for just 30 catches, 425 yards and five touchdowns heading into Week 14. He's not worth an add.
