Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly indicated TEs Brent Celek, Zach Ertz and James Casey are expected to receive playing time during games this season.
Fantasy Tip: Even though they are all expected to see playing time, none are considered No. 1 fantasy tight ends. Celek could be worth a late-round flier that can be a No. 2 tight end because of his chemistry with QB Michael Vick. Casey should get a decent amount of receptions this season but should be taken in only very deep leagues. Casey could be a waiver wire option early in the season. Ertz is not expected to have a lot of fantasy value this season.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly may keep four or five tight ends on the roster next season so he could use them in his spread offense. TE Brent Celek will be on the roster and TE Clay Harbor is expected to compete for playing time, but Kelly will be looking for a tight end that can stretch the field. The Eagles could consider drafting a tight end at some point after the first round.
