Eagles TE Brent Celek is expected to make his preseason debut on Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Philadelphia Eagles are expecting to get their first look this preseason at TE Brent Celek on Monday against the New England Patriots. Celek missed most of training camp because of a sprained knee, and in the offseason he had surgery to fix a sports hernia and a hip injury. Celek played with both injuries during the final two months of the regular season.

Analysis: At this point, Celek is not a Top 5 tight end but he should get plenty of consideration on draft day as fantasy owners look to add depth to their rosters. The injuries are a bit of a concern but he did average 13.1 yards per catch last season while pulling in 62 passes for more than 800 yards. If Celek is healthy, he could make for a solid play during the upcoming fantasy season.
