Beat: Brent Celek going to be a 'big part' of passing game - [Full Article]

It's been clear from watching Chip Kelly's offense operate this summer that the 6-4, 255-pound Brent Celek still is going to be a big part of the Eagles' passing game.

Despite playing 82 percent of the team's offensive snaps, Celek was targeted just 83 times last year. That was just five fewer than wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who only played in 11 games. That will change this year. In Chip Kelly's offense, the tight ends seldom are asked to stay in and block on pass plays.

Fantasy Impact: 

Celek was written off after the James Casey signing and the Zach Ertz draft pick, but it appears he has held onto the starting job. He'll enter the TE2 discussion.
