Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 3 vs SEA (4 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)

Celek played around 80 percent of snaps due to Vance McDonald's hip injury. And for the second week in a row, he nearly got injured himself thanks to Blaine Gabbert throwing a pass that exposed him to a big hit to his back. Last week, the offending throw was high and inside on a deep corner route. This week, it was high and inside on an out route parallel to the line of scrimmage, which safety Kam Chancellor snuffed out. Prior to that, Celek had actually beaten Chancellor in man-to-man coverage for a 5-yard gain and had found himself wide open down the seam for an 18-yard gain before safety Earl Thomas could get there in his over-the-top defensive responsibility.

2016 Week 2 vs CAR (2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Celek once again alternated series with McDonald, but saw the field a little more often this week because Chip Kelly used more two tight end sets. With limited targets in the passing game, Celek's only noteworthy play was the one where, instead of giving him a long reception, Blaine Gabbert nearly got him killed. With the offense driving on Carolina's half of the field late in the first quarter, Celek was wide open 20 yards down the seam. Gabbert's pass was outside and high despite Celek's in-breaking route, so he had to twist and jump just to even get his hands on the ball. That allowed free safety Tre Boston to deliver a big hit to Celek's back. He stayed down for a few moments, but ultimatly returned to the game. More throws like that, however, and Celek might not be so lucky next time.

2016 Week 1 vs LA (4 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)

Like Vance McDonald, Celek wasn't targeted much in the passing game and didn't show much when he was. His first target was a drop in the red zone. His second target was a mixed bag. On one hand, although he couldn't beat converted safety Mark Barron in a man-to-man situation, Barron benefitted from holding him the entire route and it not getting called. On the other hand, the pass was on-target and it hit him squarely in the hands, so he still should have caught it despite the (illegal) contact. On his third target, Celek couldn't beat linebacker Alex Ogletree one-on-one (no shenanigans this time), and the quick out nearly turned into a pick-six. Midway through the fourth quarter, Celek finally had a positive play. On another questionable-but-somehow-not-disastrous throw from Gabbert, Celek redeemed his drops by snagging a slightly-behind-him pass between two defenders, and then holding onto the ball despite a big hit from safety T.J. McDonald.
