Celek did not record a catch in Monday's 27-7 victory over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

After catching touchdowns in back-to-back weeks, Celek fell back to Earth against the Giants on Monday. While the 30-year-old tight end continued to see time on the field with the Eagles focused on using multiple two-tight end sets, he was overshadowed by Zach Ertz, who managed to snag four passes for 47 yards against the Giants. To make matters worse, Monday also marked the fifth time in the last six games Ertz recorded more snaps on offense than Celek, further marginalizing his fantasy value. Celek may stumble into a few red zone opportunities as the weeks progress, but he likely will struggle to post consistent numbers unless Ertz goes down with an injury.

Celek caught three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 39-17 win over the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

The Brent Celek renaissance continues to roll on, as the veteran tight end proves himself every bit as valuable in head coach Chip Kelly's offense as younger tight end Zach Ertz. Celek now has two touchdown passes to Ertz's zero this season, and with Kelly using more two-tight end sets in the Birds' win against New Orleans, Celek could be an intriguing option in one-tight end leagues. In any case, he's a player worth watching after touchdowns in back-to-back weeks.

Celek caught one pass, a 10-yard touchdown, in Sunday's loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

The highly-anticipated takeoff of fellow tight end Zach Ertz has been heavily delayed, allowing Celek to hang around on the periphery in the Eagles' passing game. Celek only has three catches for 16 yards this year, but he has one more touchdown than Ertz on the season. He's a very deep bench option at best, but there might be something to keeping an eye on him as the season goes on and the Eagles' passing game tries to find its feet.

Celek didn't catch any passes or receive any targets in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

After an ineffective Week 1, Celek was a complete non-factor in the Eagles' weak offensive performance against Dallas. With head coach Chip Kelly's revamped offense struggling to find an identity and production early on, Celek's extremely limited fantasy value is essentially nil.

Celek caught one pass for six yards in Monday's 26-24 loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Previously thought to be an interesting fantasy option with fellow tight end Zach Ertz sidelined by injury, Celek's fantasy value took a hit when Ertz was inserted into the starting lineup Monday. Ertz is the superior receiving tight end, and when Chip Kelly needs a receiving tight end, Ertz will likely be the one getting the call over Celek this season. Celek can still produce, but he'll be severely hampered by Ertz.

Celek caught one pass, a seven-yard touchdown reception, in Saturday's 39-26 win over the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Despite decreasing production in the last few years, Celek showed Saturday that he's still a big body with good hands who is capable of producing, especially in the red zone. Fellow tight end Zach Ertz is expected to be the focal point of the Eagles' passing attack as far as tight ends are concerned, but with Ertz sidelined for the entire preseason, he may take a game or two to find his rhythm, leaving Celek a good option for quarterback Sam Bradford near the goal line.

Celek finished 2014 with 32 receptions for 340 yards and a touchdown.

It's the same number of receptions as 2013, but Celek posted a much better total of 502 yards and six touchdowns in that instance. Celek saw his prominence lessen as Jeremy Maclin, Jordan Matthews and Zach Ertz established lead roles this year, and Celek's fantasy value was harmed further by the decline in Philadelphia's quarterback play. The quarterback production won't necessarily improve in 2015, and Celek should continue to see his role reduced due to the players previously mentioned, so Celek's 2014 numbers are likely the new status quo as long as he stays in Philadelphia.

Celek caught 5-of-7 targets for 48 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans.

Celek outproduced fellow TE Zach Ertz, who caught 4-of-5 passes for 30 yards. Ertz was forced to leave the game for a brief time with an oblique injury, but was able to return. The Eagles have a short week (they face the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day), so if Ertz is unable to go, Celek would presumably see a minor boost in his usual number of targets.

Celek (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Celek was Mark Sanchez's top tight end target last week, and he's been getting more snaps than Zach Ertz over the Eagles' last few games. The presence of Ertz limit's Celek's value right now, but of the two tight ends, Celek is probably the better fantasy option Sunday.

Celek (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Celek seemed to be Mark Sanchez's go-to tight end on Monday night, far outstripping Zach Ertz's numbers. Whether that was a one-game blip or a sign of things to come remains uncertain, but Celek is certainly trending up and could make for a decent bye-week fill-in Sunday if you're looking for someone.
