Persona non grata in 2010 and for the first six games of 2011, Celek reemerged as a weapon for the Eagles over the final 10 games of last season, catching 53 passes for 738 yards and five touchdowns. A lot of that production was in the screen game in order to help keep quarterback Michael Vick upright and slow down the opposing pass rush. With left tackle Jason Peters out for 2012 due to injury, Celek may end up getting plenty of targets in 2012. Or he may end up being asked to help out new left tackle Demetrious Bell. While Celek is unlikely to return to his glory days from 2009 when he finished the year as the 4th ranked fantasy tight end, he ranks as a low end fantasy starter in 2012 and one with upside given his re-emergence in the Eagles passing attack last season.
FF Today's Take:The details on Ertz's injury are scarce but it sounds like the Eagles tight end is dealing with a hernia issue. In any case, this a significant blow to Ertz's upside for fantasy purposes. Brent Celek is still the superior blocker in the eyes of Chip Kelly so it may take a few games before Ertz works his way back into mix in the Eagles offense.
