Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek will likely spend more time blocking than running routes this year, according to Marcus Hayes of Philly.com. With OT Dennis Kelly (back) working his way back from an injury and OT Lane Johnson being suspended the first four games, Celek is more valuable to the team as a blocker.
Fantasy Tip: While Celek's blocking ability is an asset for the Eagles, it doesn't help his fantasy value one bit. In fact, Celek's heavy blocking responsibilities make Zach Ertz the Eagles' tight end to target in fantasy leagues.

The Philadelphia Eagles could consider releasing TE James Casey if they want to keep four running backs and five wide receivers on the roster next season. The Eagles would only keep TEs Brent Celek and Zach Ertz in that scenario.

The Philadelphia Eagles like TEs James Casey, Brent Celek and Zach Ertz, and just because Casey and Celek will get raises in salary to $4 million in 2014, it doesn't mean they won't be back.

With just 25 catches and 348 receiving yards, Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek is on a 31-catch, 428-yard pace. Both numbers would be the lowest since his second year in the league in 2008. However, Celek is being used more as a blocking TE this year in the Eagles' No. 1 run offense.

In the Arizona Cardinals' five losses, opposing tight ends have caught 11 touchdown passes, and in last week's loss at the Philadelphia Eagles, all three of the Eagles' touchdowns were scored by TEs Zach Ertz and Brent Celek.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek (hip) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 15, and is probable for Week 11.
Fantasy Tip: With Zach Ertz becoming more of a factor in the offense, Celek's stock has dropped to a level where he's not even worthy to be on most rosters. He should be on your bench or on the waiver wire.

Philadelphia Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks (knee), LB Jake Knott (hamstring), T Jason Peters (quadricep, pectoral) and S Earl Wolff (knee) all did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 14. TE Brent Celek (hip) and CB Bradley Fletcher (pectoral) were limited in practice. S Patrick Chung (shoulder), WR Riley Cooper (knee) and DE Cedric Thornton (knee) all fully practiced.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek (hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Sun, 03 Nov 2013 18:10:20 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz posted five grabs for 42 yards and a score in Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders, and TE Brent Celek had three receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: Neither is particularly useful from a fantasy perspective, although each could safely be used as a short-term fantasy option or one-week bye replacement.

Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek had a 12 percent decrease in his offensive snaps in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and it was attributed to the hot conditions in Tampa during the game. "We knew that going in," head coach Chip Kelly said. "We were going to try to play a lot more guys in those situations."
Fantasy Tip: Celek remains the primary tight end in Philly, but Zach Ertz is now listed as a co-starter, so you have to wonder if he'll start cutting into Celek's workload.
