Eagles HC Chip Kelly answered a question about having three starting-caliber tight ends this way: "We're going to go three tight ends in a game." So Brent Celek, James Casey, and Zach Ertz should see plenty of action.

In Kelly's four seasons as head coach, Oregon tight ends caught 16.3 percent of completed passes. By comparison, Penn State coach Bill O'Brien, one of the architects of New England's tight end-heavy offense, had his quarterbacks complete 30.1 percent of their passes to tight ends in 2012.

The difference probably had more to do with personnel than anything - Kelly had explosive wide receivers and pass-catching running backs at Oregon - but scheme played a part as well.

Fantasy Impact: 

We aren't excited about Celek given the Eagles' additions at TE and the arrival of Kelly.
