Brent Celek was an invaluable tool last week in the Eagles Week 6 trouncing of the New York Giants. His best statistical game of the season (4 catches for 45 yards) also came with intangibles not seen on the box score - good run blocking and pass protecting. He played 78% of snaps on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Although Celek has been a great blocker and asset to the Philadelphia Eagles, there are simply too many weapons on the team for him to be relied upon for fantasy purposes.
Celek caught 3 catches from QB Nick Foles for a total of 15 yards against the Rams on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Celek continues to show very little after the catch and is seeing the field as more of a blocker these days with Zach Ertz breaking out in a big play catching role. At this point Ertz can do a lot more after the catch than what Celek can provide.
Brent Celek did not record a catch in the Week 2 win against the Colts. He couldn't reel in an off-target end zone pass from QB Nick Foles in the third quarter. (Source: NFL.com)
Fantasy Impact: Celek only has 3 catches for 15 yards on the season. The torch has been passed - Zach Ertz is the tight end to own on this team. Celek is well off the fantasy radar and isn't worth owning.
Celek is often a forgotten man in the Eagles offense that has TE Zach Ertz entering his sophomore season. Celek had 2 catches against the Steelers in Philadelphia's third preseason game and punished the defense after the catch running over defenders.
Fantasy Impact: The Eagles passing offense is never going to lock into only one receiving option as QB Nick Foles is going to find the open man and spread the ball all over the field. Celek had a 32/502/6 stat line last year and can still be a trusted option in 2014
