  • Celek (knee) was removed from the injury report for Sunday's game against the Titans. Limited in practice the previous two days, Celek returned to full participation Friday and was thus removed from the injury report. He's been operating as San Francisco's No. 1 tight end, averaging four targets over the past five games. Celek has gains of 61 and 47 yards in that stretch, but he's been pretty quiet otherwise.

  • 49ers' Garrett Celek: Limited with knee issue
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gelek was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice due to a knee injury. Each of Celek's three most productive games this season has occurred in the past four weeks, with the veteran most recently catching two of four targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-16 win over the Texans. His ability to practice in a limited capacity suggests he's on track to play against the Titans on Sunday, but if not, George Kittle likely would step in as the No. 1 tight end, a role he held for the first half of the season to mixed results.

  • Celek caught two of his four targets for 67 yards and his third touchdown of the season in Sunday's 26-16 victory over the Texans. Celek did the majority of his damage on a 61-yard catch and run in the third quarter, the longest reception of his career. Jimmy Garoppolo rewarded his tight end at the end of the drive with a well-placed toss that Celek corralled for his third touchdown of the season. The 29-year-old has now scored three touchdowns in three consecutive seasons despite starting each year behind a younger, more athletic tight end on the depth chart. Perhaps the 49ers should consider featuring "Old Reliable" more often than they have been during his time in San Francisco. They may already be heading in that direction based on the fact that Celek has received more targets and receptions than rookie George Kittle over the past two weeks. That said, there is still a clear timeshare regarding tight end snaps, and fullback Kyle Juszczyk's presence in the short-yardage passing game (four targets Sunday) also eats into Celek's potential fantasy value.

  • Celek caught two of his four targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 15-14 win over the Bears. Celek continued to split targets with rookie George Kittle, which has effectively nullified both tight ends' fantasy values. Jimmy Garoppolo made his debut start in red and gold Sunday and was noticeably more effective than either of the 49ers' previous signal callers this season, but unless one of Celek or Kittle develops a clear rapport with Garoppolo, it will be tough to trust either player against the Texans next Sunday.

  • 49ers' Garrett Celek: Scores long touchdown in start
    By RotoWire Staff

    Celek hauled in four of his six targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Giants. The veteran tight end got the start in place of George Kittle (leg) and produced a strong fantasy line due in large part to a 47-yard catch and run for a score at the end of the first half. While this was a promising outing for Celek, the upcoming bye week should presumably afford Kittle enough time to heal up. Even if he were to earn another start, the Seahawks are far less forgiving against opposing tight ends in comparison to the Giants, who entered Week 10 ranked as the best defense against the position.
