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.
Zach Ertz misses practice Thursday-- Thu Nov 17 12:30 pm --

FF Today's Take:This doesn't sound good for Ertz. He should be considered questionable at best for Week 11. Brent Celek and Trey Burton would see increased snaps if Ertz isn't able to suit up against the Seahawks.
Eagles could be without Zach Ertz in Week 2-- Mon Sep 12 12:19 pm --
Displaced rib under his collarbone
Tight end Zach Ertz and cornerback Leodis McKelvin both suffered injuries in the Eagles' 20-10 win over the Cleveland Browns that could keep them out of the team's Monday night game against the Chicago Bears.
Ertz suffered what head coach Doug Pederson called "a displaced rib under his collarbone". McKelvin has a strained hamstring. Pederson said both players were "week to week."(NJ.com)
FF Today's Take:Ertz owners need to be making other plans at tight end for Week 2. Brent Celek and Trey Burton are next up on the depth chart.
