Zach Ertz makes biggest jump among Eagles tight ends


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Eagles offensive coordiantor Pat Shurmur said the tight end group has really improved, especially second-year pro Zach Ertz.

"When you look at each guy, Brent Celek is very veteran, but he's in great shape. He looks terrific. James Casey kind of does everything we ask him to do, whether it's run block, pass block. He's really good even out of the back ield at times," Shurmur said.

"Then Ertz has probably made the biggest improvement because he's the youngest guy. I think we can use any combination of one, two or three of them at any time. Really, we train our guys. Receivers and tight ends, they're all just skill players to us."

The Philadelphia Inquirer expects the tight ends, specifically Ertz, to benefit from the departures of receivers DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant.


Eagles using Broncos' offense as a model


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles won't lack for targets in 2014. Receivers Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin are under contract, joining receiver DeSean Jackson, tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek and of course running back LeSean McCoy.

Askef if there will be enough passes to go around, general manager Howie Roseman told Birds 24/7 that he's trying to follow Denver's model.

"When you look at how many offensive plays that you have over the course of the season, there’s a lot of opportunities to spread the ball around, get people involved," Roseman said. "I don’t think you have to look further than when you look at the Denver Broncos and how many options they have in their passing game and how big of an advantage that is when you have guys all around the field and you can get different personnel groups and that’s what we’re looking to do. We're looking to be an explosive, dynamic offense and when you talk about the skills that he has, Jeremy, certainly he adds to that group."

Maclin was the latest to sign when he inked a one-year deal Saturday.


Brent Celek exits Wild Card loss with neck injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2014) Eagles tight ends Brent Celek was forced out of Saturday's Wild Card game at home against New Orleans with a neck injury.

Celek sustained the injury in the fourth quarter and was unable to return despite being ruled probable for return. He caught two of three passes thrown his way for 16 yards in a 26-24 defeat.

Eagles tight ends make big impact Week 17


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Eagles tight ends Brent Celek and Zach Ertz made their presence felt Week 17 at Dallas. Celek caught three passes for 71 yards, including a 35-yarder and a 14-yard touchdown. Ertz hauled in three receptions for 43 yards.

Each tight end was targeted five times, tied for the team lead with receiver Jason Avant. Celek has scored in consecutive weeks entering Saturday's playoff game vs. New Orleans.


Brent Celek paces Eagles in receiving


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/23/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek caught three passes for a team-high 58 yards in the win over Chicago, including a 10-yard touchdown in the first quarter. It was Celek's fifth score this season.

Celek drew four targets, third most on the team. He'll visit the Cowboys in Week 17.


Eagles backup pass catcher do little Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) The Eagles backup pass catchers did little Week 15 against the Vikings.

Jason Avant actually had a solid game, catching three passes for 40 yards and a score. He was also flagged for offensive pass interference on a deep pass. Brent Celek caught just one pass for 25 yards, and Brad Smith caught one pass for 14 yards. They'll take on the Bears Week 16.


Several Eagles make minor plays in win over Lions


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Running back Bryce Brown contributed the most among the minor players for the Eagles in their defeat of Detroit on Sunday. He managed 19 yards on six carries and added a catch for 13 yards.

Tight end Brent Celek had two catches for 29 yards. Fellow tight end Zach Ertz was blanked.


Brent Celek scores in Week 13 victory


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek caught four passes for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Cardinals. Celek was targeted six times (which was tied for the team lead). 

This was the third touchdown of the season for Celek, who now has two in his last four games. Fellow tight end Zach Ertz caught five passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns. Coming into the game, the Cardinals had allowed 11 touchdowns to opposing tight ends, the most in the NFL. 

The Eagles face the Lions in Week 14. 


Zach Ertz and Brent Celek limit each others' Fantasy value


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/27/2013) Eagles tight ends Zach Ertz and Brent Celek have spent most of the season cannibalizing each others' value. Ertz has one touchdown and one game of 50 or more receiving yards. Celek has three touchdowns and two games of 50 or more yards.

Coming out of the bye, there's always a chance that the Eagles may have tweaked their tight end strategy, but we won't know what the tweaks were until after the game. This deep into the season, though, it's pretty safe to assume that neither tight end will have much value while the other is around.

Ertz and Celek can be left on the bench in most formats.

Brent Celek nearly scores a touchdown


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek, who had averaged just 14.0 receiving yards in his previous five games, had his longest play of the season Week 11 against the Redskins, catching a 42-yard pass from quarterback Nick Foles in the second quarter. It nearly resulted in a touchdown, too. In fact, the officials initially called it a touchdown before ruling Celek down on the 1-yard line after reviewing the play.

It was Celek's only catch and only target on the day. He hasn't caught more than three passes in any game this season.

The Eagles have a bye in Week 12. They host the Cardinals in Week 13.


Brent Celek fine to play


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek, who was dealing with a hip injury in practice leading up to the game, is active for Week 11 against the Redskins. He was listed as probable on Friday's injury report.

Three Eagles probable heading into Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Eagles S Patrick Chung, TE Brent Celek and DE Cedric Thornton are probable entering Week 11 against Washington.

Both Chung and Thornton were full participants in practice each day this week. Celek was limited initially, but was able to practice in full Friday.


Brent Celek missed time yet again Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek (hip) was limited in practice yet again Thursday, the second straight day he has been unable to participate in full. Celek's status for Week 11 against Washington will be determined after Friday's practice.

Brent Celek limited with hip injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek was limited in Wednesday's practice by a hip injury. Philly is preparing to host Washington on Sunday.

Brent Celek's production lacking without Michael Vick


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/13/2013) Though the Redskins, his Week 11 opponent, rank 26th against the pass, allowing 274.8 yards per game, and have given up the sixth-most Fantasy points per game to tight ends, Eagles tight end Brent Celek is a long shot to take advantage. He has yet to do anything noteworthy with Nick Foles under center, averaging 1.5 catches for 13.3 yards in four games compared to 2.0 catches for 32.5 yards in the six games started by Michael Vick.

Of course, during that time, he's also had to contend with fellow tight Zach Ertz, who's averaging 2.3 catches for 21.8 yards over his last six games, but wherever you want to place the blame, Celek doesn't have much to offer Fantasy owners right now.

Jamey Eisenberg doesn't even rank him among his top 24 tight ends this week, so you wouldn't want to use Celek outside of the most desperate of circumstances.


Philadelphia's tight ends not doing much in Green Bay


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Eagles tight ends Brent Celek and Zach Ertz both failed to make an impact during Sunday's contest against the Eagles in Week 10.

Celek caught a 7-yard pass from Nick Foles in the opening play of the game. He was not targeted again for the rest of the game. Ertz finished the game without a target.

Both tight ends will be seeking a bounce-back game in Week 11 against the Redskins.

Zach Ertz, Brent Celek too risky to trust Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2013) Eagles tight end Zach Ertz could leapfrog Brent Celek as a sneaky Fantasy play, especially for those who need a bye week replacement heading into Week 10 at Green Bay.

With Nick Foles under center, Ertz was one of his primary targets in Week 9 against the Raiders. He caught five of the six passes throw his way for 42 yards and a touchdown. The veteran Celek was only targeted four times and had three grabs for 27 yards and a touchdown against Oakland.

Ertz has eight catches for 80 yards and a touchdown while Celek has been limited to only six receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown over the past three games. Opposing tight ends have scored 9.50 Fantasy points per game against the Packers this season. Tight ends have only scored twice in the last six games.

Theses two tight ends have been a bit inconsistent to trust as of late, and should only be considered in deeper Fantasy formats for Week 10.

Brent Celek scores during rout


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek managed to find the end zone Week 9 against the Raiders.

Celek wasn't one of quarterback Nick Foles' big weapons, but was able to make his presence felt. Celek wound up catching three passes for 27 yards and a score. He hooked up with Foles on a 2 yard touchdown to begin the Eagles scoring. Celek was targeted four times.

The tight end will take on the Packers Week 10.


Brent Celek has rough matchup Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek has a tough matchup Week 9 against the Raiders.

Oakland has been pretty strong against tight ends, allowing just 6.29 Fantasy points per game. That figure ranks ninth in the league. The team has held tight ends to an average of 3.86 receptions per game. They've allowed just two tight ends to reach the end zone this year. 

Celek hasn't been much of a threat in the Eagles offense. Through eight games, he's caught just 14 balls. His game-high in catches is just three this season. Given the Raiders success against tight ends, and the Eagles willingness to sub in Zach Ertz, Celek probably shouldn't be a Fantasy starter Week 9.


Eagles tight ends combine for three catches Week 8


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Eagles tight ends Brent Celek and Zach Ertz combined for three catches during a 15-7 loss Week 8 vs. N.Y. Giants. Celek totaled two catches for 17 yards, while Ertz had one catch for 5 yards.

Celek was targeted three times, while Ertz was targeted four times. Celek's first target on the team's opening drive was picked off because of a miscommunication with quarterback Michael Vick, who eventually left the game late in the first quarter after aggravating a hamstring injury. Half of Ertz's targets came from rookie quarterback Matt Barkley, who replaced Vick.

The Eagles are back in action Week 9 at Oakland. Barkley might have to start next week, if Vick and Nick Foles (concussion) are out.


Eagles TEs looking at good matchup Week 8


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2013) The Giants have had their troubles with opposing tight ends in 2013, which means good news for Eagles tight ends Brent Celek and Zach Ertz heading into their Week 8 rematch with New York.

The duo combined for five catches for 85 yards and one touchdown Week 5 against the Giants. Celek had a 25-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter of a 36-21 win.

Through seven games against New York, tight ends average 66.1 receiving yards and 10 Fantasy points per week, which is the sixth-highest average. Tight ends have also totaled five touchdowns.

While the matchup is favorable for the Eagles' tight ends Week 8, the duo have been cutting into each other's production, so Celek and Ertz aren't slam-dunk options. Both players are no better than No. 2 Fantasy tight ends Week 8.


Brent Celek has another one-catch outing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek was held to one catch for 9 yards Week 7 vs. Dallas. Celek has totaled one catch in two straight games.

Celek was targeted four times in a 17-3 loss Sunday. The Eagles are back in action Week 8 vs. N.Y. Giants.


Brent Celek remains Fantasy gamble


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek has his best career numbers against his Week 7 opponent -- Dallas. Celek has totaled 37 catches for 490 yards and four touchdowns in 10 career games against the Cowboys -- all career highs against one opponent.

Tight ends have done pretty well against Dallas. They average 12 Fantasy points per week, which is the third-highest average in the league. Tight ends average 87.7 receiving yards and have totaled four touchdowns in six games against against Dallas.

Celek does have a good history against Dallas and tight ends have done well against the Cowboys this season. However, Celek continues to be his usual unreliable self for Fantasy owners, so it's still a gamble to start him Week 7. He's just a low-end Fantasy start Sunday.


Brent Celek, Zach Ertz combine for 23 yards


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Eagles tight ends Brent Celek and Zach Ertz combined to make a few catches during the Week 6 road test at Tampa Bay Sunday. The starter Celek only saw one target compared to Ertz's six in the game.

Ertz went for three grabs for 13 yards and did not score. Celek caught one pass for 10 yards in the game and also didn't socre for the Eagles.

Philadelphia hasn't seen a lot of usage out of tight ends this season, but Ertz clearly made more impact Sunday. The Eagles play against Dallas Week 7.

Brent Celek could see more looks from Nick Foles


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2013) Eagles tight end Brent Celek heads into Week 6 at Tampa Bay coming off an exciting finish to his Week 5 win at New York. Celek caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from Nick Foles in the fourth quarter of the game. 

Foles will continue to quarterback the Eagles against the Bucs Week 6 with Michael Vick injured. That could mean more looks to Celek, who has 10 catches for 178 yards and two scores on the season. 

Celek, who has five catches for 59 yards and no scores over two career games against Tampa Bay, matches up against a team allowing the seventh-most Fantasy points per game to the tight end position this season. That said, after giving up 17 catches for 258 yards and two scores combined to Kellen Winslow and Jimmy Graham the first two weeks of the season, the Bucs have allowed just four catches for 64 yards and no scores the last two games. 

Celek has been an underwhelming Fantasy option to this point this season and we don't see him emerging just because Foles is throwing the passes. Consider him a No. 2 Fantasy TE for the Week 6 game on Sunday.
