News: Celek caught two passes for 41 yards on three targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers. Impact: While Zach Ertz has the much higher ceiling in fantasy terms, Celek has shown this preseason that he's still a viable threat in the passing game, in addition to being an excellent blocker. After going without a reception during his brief appearance in the preseason opener, Celek has hauled in four-of-six targets for 86 yards over the last two exhibition games. Both he and Ertz have been major parts of the offense.(RotoWire, )

News: Celek was targeted once in Friday's preseason opener against the Bears. Impact: Zach Ertz caught four passes for 60 yards, but nearly all of that damage came with the second-team offense. Celek, who strictly played with the first-team and is locked in as a starter, is unlikely to match Ertz's production in the passing game this season. Look for the Eagles to use more "two-tight end" sets, although Ertz will often be lined up in the slot or out wide, rather than tight to the formation. Celek's fantasy value and targets may be headed in the wrong direction, but he's still a strong blocker and capable receiver, a skill set that makes him highly valuable to the Eagles.(RotoWire, )
