5.08 - Brent Celek
I really liked Jason Witten here, but he just doesn’t score nearly enough (6 TDs … over the past two years!) to be picked this high in a non-PPR league. I don’t see this year being any different if you noticed Sunday’s preseason game. Witten was open on two of those goal line plays and didn’t warrant even a pump fake?
On the other side of the spectrum Celek gets plenty of attention in the red zone, and I don’t see Philly changing their feathers to start running in the red zone. Landing the top red zone target on a team that throws first in the red zone is very promising. Plus, two of Celek’s best games last year came when Kevin Kolb was at quarterback. Only three TEs scored more and racked up more yardage than Celek last year – not bad for the ‘ol Bearcat.
