Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs LAR (1 / 1 / 28 / 0 rec)
Celek's lone target (and reception) set up San Francisco's third quarter touchdown to go up 27-6. Algined on the left side of the offensive line opposite a trips right formation, Celek beat linebacker Corey Littleton on a deep corner route.
2017 Week 15 vs TEN (3 / 3 / 63 / 1 rec)
Celek made the most out of his three targets. His first got San Francisco back into field goal range on 3rd-and-18. His second target produced their only touchdown of the game. And his third gained 41 yards, which comprised most of the yardage in an early fourth quarter field goal drive. On the latter two big plays, Celek was completely uncovered on his deep corner routes.
2017 Week 14 vs HOU (4 / 2 / 67 / 1 rec)
The entirety of Celek's contributions as a receiver came in a five-play span during the third quarter. On 1st-and-10 at San Francisco's 19-yard line, Celek lined up in a tight slot left position with trips right on the opposite side. He ran a simple post route and was completely uncovered. It would have been a 30-yard catch and run if not for slipshod tackling allowing him to tack on an additional 30. Four plays later, Celek scored a touchdown on the backside pass off of play-action bootleg that the 49ers seem to run at least 10 times per game. This time it worked, as Celek was wide open when his route broke into the left flat.
2017 Week 13 vs CHI (4 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)
Three of Celek's four targets arose out of running a route after lining up as a blocker in a three-point stance. Two were successfully completed because he beat the coverage of a Bears linebacker; Christian Jones once and Lamarr Houston once. Celek's two incomplete targets were a short pass near the goal line that was knocked down by cornerback Kyle Fuller and a deep corner route near midfield in which he beat Prince Amakumura, but the pass was overthrown.
2017 Week 12 vs SEA (2 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)
With George Kittle returning from injury, Celek returned to his blocking tight end role. He did have a couple of passes thrown his way, however both of them were inconsequential dumpoffs in front of Seattle's short middle zone.
2017 Week 10 vs NYG (6 / 4 / 67 / 1 rec)
Celek did almost all of his damage on three consecutive plays inside the two-minute warning before halftime. First, he made a nice hands adjustment for a 7-yard gain. Then he reached down to catch a low throw across the middle for 9 yards. To cap things off, he scored a 47-yard touchdown by beating Jonathan Casillas' man-to-man coverage and then juking Janoris Jenkins near the 20-yard line.
2017 Week 9 vs ARI (4 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Celek saw a big leap in playing time due to George Kittle shuttling in and out of the game while nursing an ankle injury. Celek couldn't do much with the opportunity, as two of his "targets" were deflected at the line of scrimmage, while another involved C.J. Beathard throwing a short comeback route when Celek was running a corner route.
2017 Week 8 vs PHI (2 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)
C.J. Beathard targeted Celek on the 49ers' first two pass plays, but then never targeted him again. The second was only technically a target insofar as it was a throwaway in Celek's general direction. The first, in contrast, resulted in San Francisco's longest gain of the game. On the play, Celek lined up next to the right tackle in a two tight end right formation, which was the same formation Kyle Shanahan used on the previous play. Philadelphia's defense didn't anticipate Celek going out for a pass out of this look (indeed he stayed in to run block on that previous play), so Celek was able to run free down the seam for an easy 24-yard pitch and catch.
