49ers Beat: Garrett Celek could win TE job

Mercury News - [Full Article]

Both Garrett Celek and Vance McDonald surely will garner a lot of time together in two tight-end sets. Both are coming off career years. Both have durability questions. Neither is a touchdown machine, with three apiece for their career (all from last season).

Celek re-signed in February, so the pressure is on McDonald to really live up to his billing as a 2013 second-round draft pick.

Fantasy Impact: 

This writer picks Celek as the Week 1 starter. But with questions at QB, there is a lot we need to learn about this offense and its fantasy value. In Philly, Chip Kelly needed the TE to block, and it was only later in the season when the O-line found some stability did we see Zach Ertz start to emerge a little at the TE position.
