TE - FA
Week 3 Outlook
Brent Celek caught three passes for 13 yards in Sunday's regular season finale against the Cowboys. He finished the season with 13 receptions for 130 yards and one touchdown.
Celek is signed through the 2018 season. He will likely retain the same role as a back up behind Brent Celek and Trey Burton.
Brent Celek caught just one pass on Sunday for five yards, but it went for a touchdown. It was the first touchdown of the season for Celek, who has nine catches for 105 yards this season.
With Zach Ertz likely back in the lineup next week, Celek will likely not be targeted and go back to his role as a blocking tight end.
The Philadelphia Eagles used a 30-point second half to blowout the Cowboys, 37-9. Eight different Eagles had at least one reception, including Brent Celek, who hauled in one pass for 28 yards.
Celek is used mostly as a blocking tight end, rarely targeted. He has only 8 receptions for 100 yards this season. Celek's fantasy value is negligible unless Zach Ertz goes down with injury.
With Zach Ertz out of the lineup, Brent Celek saw a bigger role in the passing game. He was targeted four times, catching three for 39 yards. All of Celek's receptions came in the first half.
Celek had only four receptions on the season before Sunday's game. Assuming Ertz is back in the lineup when the Eagles face the Cowboys in two weeks, expect Celek's fantasy value to be minimal.
The Eagles got off to a fast start and never looked back in a 34-7 win over the Cardinals in Sunday. Brent Celek, relegated to mainly a blocking tight end this stage of his career, caught a single pass on Sunday for five yards.
Celek has been targeted only three times this season and has two catches for 16 yards. He's the third option at tight end and has little fantasy value moving forward.
