TE Brent Celek - Philadelphia Eagles
|6-4, 250||Born: 1-25-1985||College: Cincinnati||Drafted: Round 5|
News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 23): Celek should get another start on Thanksgiving against the Lions, and he might even get more after that considering how scary Zach Ertz landing on his head and neck looked. Celek is competent and should get a lot of targets as the tight end seems to be getting open the most often in this offense.

2015 Week 11 vs TB (10 / 7 / 79 / 0 rec)
Brent Celek led the team in targets and receiving yards in his best game of the year. He was left as the only reliable tight end after Zach Ertz was ruled out with a concussion early in the game. Mark Sanchez looked for Celek often, and when the passes were on target, he made them count by picking up chunks of yards. He had an opportunity for a big gain late in the first when he was left wide open, but couldn't hang onto the pass. Had the Eagles offense actually been effective, Celek would have likely had a monster day, but ultimately didn't see any redzone looks. Should Ertz miss any time, Celek will have a big role and it wouldn't be surprising to see nice box scores like the one he had against the Bucs.
2015 Week 10 vs MIA (4 / 4 / 134 / 0 rec)
Someone needed to step up in this game and help out the Eagles quarterbacks. That someone was Brent Celek. On their very first play of the game he turned a 10-yard catch into a 60-yard gain. It was perfect ball placement by Sam Bradford, finding Celek in space. Celek did the rest with a nice cut to the sideline and rumbled into Dolphins' territory. He contributed another big catch, this time for 20 yards, on their next series, and then a 40-yarder in the second quarter. In the end, he converted all four of his targets into his biggest yardage total since Week 2 of the 2012 season.
2015 Week 5 vs NO (3 / 3 / 44 / 1 rec)
Brent Celek only has six targets on the season but leads the team in touchdown receptions. His touchdown in the third quarter was the result of an excellent play design and terrible defensive execution. Celek simply leaked off of the line and curled into an empty zone in the end zone. There wasn't a defender within five yards of him. His pass-blocking skills will create an active game script for him throughout the season, and occasionally, he'll be forgotten by the defense and left wide open.
2015 Week 4 vs WAS (2 / 1 / 10 / 1 rec)
With the Eagles playing catchup, Brent Celek's snap counts were reduced to the lowest he has seen all season. Obviously, Kelly wanted to get more playmakers on the field and Celek, though consistent and a good blocker, can't compare athletically to Ertz. He did, however, bailout a scrambling Bradford by leaking into the flat, catching a forced pass and diving into the end zone.
Latest NewsEagles | Brent Celek productive again (Sun Nov 22, 08:52 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek had seven catches for 79 yards in a 45-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11. Our View: Zach Ertz left with a concussion on a scary head-first landing, so Celek could get the majority of tight end targets and be useful against Detroit on Thanksgiving.
link to story Eagles | Philly using more two-TE sets (Wed Nov 18, 01:33 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has been using more two-tight ends sets with TEs Zach Ertz and Brent Celek to better suit the skill set of his tight ends and RB DeMarco Murray, which has come at the expense of the wide receivers. Our View: The Eagles has emphasized '12' personnel two-tight end sets for two straight weeks and have been rewarded with 202 combined receiving yards from Ertz and Celek.
link to story Eagles | Brent Celek has 100-yard game (Sun Nov 15, 06:40 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek caught four passes for 134 yards, including a 60-yard catch in the first quarter, but had no touchdowns in a 20-19 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Nov. 15. Our View: The tight ends were left open too often by the Dolphins defense. Jason Witten and the Cowboys are up next for Miami, while Celek and the Eagles get Tampa.
