Celek saw a big dip in playing time because of the emergence of George Kittle at tight end for the 49ers. Celek had just five receptions for 90 yards after having 20-plus receptions two straight seasons. He is the top backup for the 49ers and likely keeps that job this year. Celek can make plays in the passing game and is a pretty good blocker.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Celek probably reached his ceiling three years back. His erratic production makes him a reach for fantasy teams. He could get around 10 receptions for 130 yards with a couple scores.

The backup to George Kittle had just five catches for 90 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games for the Niners last season. He'll turn 31 next month and won't be fantasy relevant in 2019 unless Kittle goes down with an injury during the season.
San Francisco 49ers TE Garrett Celek (concussion, back) has yet to be cleared from a concussion he suffered in Week 17 and will get clearance until 'at least' training camp, according to NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
San Francisco 49ers tight end Garrett Celek (thumb) underwent thumb surgery following the season. General manager John Lynch called the procedure a "straightforward thing" and it doesn't sound like Celek will miss the offseason program. Celek played in 15 games last season, but apparently he played through a broken thumb for the majority of the year. As the blocking complement to George Kittle, Celek had only five catches (eight targets) for 90 yards and two touchdowns. He won't be worth drafting in the majority of 2019 leagues.
San Francisco 49ers TE Garrett Celek (thumb) underwent thumb surgery after the 2018 season but probably will be ready for the start of offseason workouts.
