Eagles | James Casey could be in jeopardy

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 19:33:20 -0700

The Philadelphia Eagles could consider releasing TE James Casey if they want to keep four running backs and five wide receivers on the roster next season. The Eagles would only keep TEs Brent Celek and Zach Ertz in that scenario.

Eagles | Team likes their TE corps

Sat, 25 Jan 2014 18:11:08 -0800

The Philadelphia Eagles like TEs James Casey, Brent Celek and Zach Ertz, and just because Casey and Celek will get raises in salary to $4 million in 2014, it doesn't mean they won't be back.

Eagles | James Casey's role uncertain

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 12:41:06 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is not saying how TE James Casey will be used Week 1 but did say he likely will be active for the game. "He's doing a good job. Most likely he's going to be active and we'll use him. The one thing about our roster, I think on offense, anybody that's active is preparing to play the whole game, so we'll just have to see how many of the position or personnel groups that we use involve him … He's very multiple. He can play our wide spot. He can play our 'A' spot," Shurmur said.

Eagles | Tight ends being used in various formations

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 14:05:59 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek played in all 21 snaps with the first-team offense in the team's first preseason game, and he was used everywhere on the field and either blocked or ran passing routes. Celek started eight plays lined up as a halfback and four times lined up as a traditional tight end. He also was lined up four times in the slot, three times split out wide and twice in the backfield to the left of the quarterback in shotgun. "In this offense, you've got to know every position, and they can just interchange you anywhere," Celek said. "And it's fun. It's a new experience. You get to do different things. Guys like it." He stayed in to block on 11 plays.

TE James Casey didn't see a single snap with the first-team offense. TE Zach Ertz should see plenty of time, too, but his development as a blocker should keep Celek as the No. 1 tight end on the team. Ertz, who didn't run block much in college, will be asked to do plenty of that in the pros. Ertz blocked out of his formations and struggled in the preseason game. The three times there was a two-tight end set, Ertz was lined up in the slot with Celek either in-line or in the backfield. Celek, Ertz and Casey have lined up in three-tight end formations at times in practice, but it's unlikely the team will use many of those formations during the season.

Fantasy Tip: Celek and Ertz are really the only two tight ends that should be considered in fantasy circles. How Kelly uses them both will likely vary, and Ertz's struggles as a blocker might help him as a receiver if Chip Kelly decides to use Celek for blocking more. Regardless, they could be interchangeable and figure to give fantasy owners relying on them headaches on a weekly basis.

Eagles | James Casey works underneath

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 18:07:01 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE James Casey saw plenty of work underneath on quick out patterns during joint practice with the New England Patriots Wednesday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Casey is battling Brent Celek for the top spot on the depth chart, and rookie Zach Ertz is also in the mix as well. It sounds as if Casey is the top receiving option at the position, while Celek will be used more for blocking purposes, especially in two-TE sets.

Eagles | Two sharing top TE spot

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 09:18:52 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TEs James Casey and Brent Celek are each listed as starting tight ends on the team's initial preseason depth chart released Monday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: For fantasy purposes, Casey is viewed as the bigger receiving threat, while Celek is expected to take on more of a blocking role.

Eagles | Brent Celek considered blocking TE

Tue, 23 Jul 2013 09:29:33 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles TE Brent Celek is considered a blocking tight end in the new offensive system installed by head coach Chip Kelly, while FB/TE James Casey and TE Zach Ertz are considered primarily receivers.

Fantasy Tip: The team has plenty of depth at the position, and might use three-TE alignments at some points. For fantasy purposes, Celek will no longer be that dependable guy you go to off the waiver wire. It appears his production will be down. Casey might be the best bet, with Ertz the second option. Clay Harbor is also in the mix for a role.

Eagles | James Casey to be used in multiple spots

Thu, 23 May 2013 10:07:21 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles FB James Casey, who was used primarily as a fullback for the Houston Texans, is expected to be used all over the place in head coach Chip Kelly's "Joker" offense. Casey had 34 catches last year, but he caught 111 passes in his final season at Rice.

Fantasy Tip: With Brent Celek, Zach Ertz and Clay Harbor also in the picture, don't expect Casey to be used much as a tight end, let alone catch many passes. He won't be useful in fantasy leagues, unless some injuries clear the way.

Eagles | Three TEs expected to receive playing time

Fri, 17 May 2013 13:24:03 -0700

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.

He's had a good week of practice."

If Houston Texans impending free-agent TE Joel Dreessen departs in the offseason, it could mean a big lift for FB James Casey. Casey, who spent most of 2011 at fullback after being converted to the position during training camp, caught 18 passes last season. Moving Casey back to his original position and pairing him with TE Owen Daniels would give the Texans two downfield threats at the position.
