Celek was only targeted three times in what eventually became a run-heavy, clock-milking attack for the Eagles after they jumped out to a 26-point lead over the Redskins early in the third quarter. But Celek made the most of it after getting wide open along the seam and practically walked into the end zone to cap-off a 28-yard score.

Fantasy Spin: The low amount of targets is concerning over the course of 74 total passing plays, but it wouldn't be comfortable to generalize Celek's role in the passing game as "uninvolved." The volume of offensive snaps tilted strongly in the Redskins favor after they fell behind, and Celek became an afterthought as a result. He has upside in each given week, but splitting time with Zach Ertz and having a coach committed to running the football won't give him TE1 consideration anytime soon.
