Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the TE position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
In two out of three seasons from 2009-2011 Brent Celek was a top 10 fantasy option at his position, and even in last year’s nightmare season for the Eagles Celek still managed 57 catches for 684 yards. However, Celek only scored one touchdown a season ago, trashing his fantasy value. The 28-year-old isn’t a great fit for Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense in Philly, and the team drafted tight end Zach Ertz early in the second round. Celek may improve slightly on last year’s TE21 finish, but it isn’t going to be by much.
Positives PPR beast, was even better with Kolb at QB last year than he was with McNabb Negatives Wont score a ton of TD's Draft Strategy By design I am getting in on the tail end of the TE run in all of my leagues this year, because I love the value Celek presents. He's a PPR manimal, and I have him after only Finley, Clark and Gates in my 2010 TE rankings. (Contributed by: SJSwarm)
Round 6, Pick 3
Positives Looked great with Kolb last year under center, a young stud TE and with a new qb you just know he will be targeting brent on checkdowns this year. Negatives New qb. Draft Strategy Harvin got snaked. I almost took Maclin but he made it back to me which i am stoked about. Took a qb and te...hoping to perhaps start a run. (Contributed by: Bigtyrony)
Round 5, Pick 7
Positives Coming off a great year; good friend of Kolb and should get utilized a lot. Negatives Loss of McNabb may hurt. Draft Strategy Wasn't impressed with QBs here, so looked hard at TEs. Thought that Celek had the better upside over Witten & Gonzalez. Since a lot of my draft looks like I'm drafting for potential, I figured, why not? (Contributed by: tlandavazo)
