• Brent Celek ranked among the leaders at his position in nearly every category last year. But in prime fantasy territory he often failed to deliver. Celek and the Bears' Greg Olsen(above) were the most targeted tight ends in goal-to-go situations; both had 13 passes thrown their way inside the 10. Celek caught only seven of those balls and turned just four into scores, for a TD rate of 30.8%. Olson's was 38.5%, which ranked third, behind the Vikings' Visanthe Shiancoe (80%) and the Colts' Dallas Clark (71.4%).
