Brent Celek cleared to return: Fantasy implications

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek (concussion) has been cleared to return. We break down the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek has been cleared to return after passing all of his concussion tests. Celek was knocked out of last weekend's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he missed Thursday night's game with the Cincinnati Bengals because there was little chance of him being cleared in time to play on a short week.

Celek has 51 catches for 602 yards this season with one touchdown. He should be able to play in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: The Eagles could have used Celek on Thursday as they struggled in the second half. Celek is one of the team's better receivers and has been a solid option for fantasy owners when he's healthy.

Celek should be considered a fringe No. 1 tight end for Week 16 against the Redskins.
