Colts | Coby Fleener to return?

Thu, 11 Feb 2016 16:27:13 -0800

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent Coby Fleener is expected to be retained by the Colts this offseason. Fleener should be the favorite to be re-signed ahead of fellow impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen, in the opinion of Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star.

Fantasy Tip: Re-signing one free-agent tight end could push the other free-agent tight end out the door in Indianapolis. It looks like Fleener has the upper hand, but neither one is a viable starting tight end option right now, however.

Colts | Dwayne Allen unlikely to return to Colts

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 08:18:28 -0800

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen is unlikely to re-sign with the team. Allen was forced to block for much of the season and was targeted on just 29 passes.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has a lot more talent than his futile 16-109-1 line shows, and he had eight TDs in 2014. He'll be a sneaky TE2 flyer in drafts.

Colts | Jack Doyle could have bigger role

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 14:46:41 -0800

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle may see an increase in usage in 2016 and could assume the backup tight end position if one of impending free-agent TEs Coby Fleener or Dwayne Allen don't re-sign.

Fantasy Tip: If Fleener or Allen doesn't return, then Doyle will indubitably see more snaps next season, but still probably not enough to warrant starter consideration.

Colts | Dwayne Allen wants to return

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 21:20:46 -0800

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen said Monday, Jan. 11, that he is hopeful of returning to the team for 2016 and beyond. "I plan on being back. I hope everything is wrapped up before the period even starts," Allen said. "I found my home and hope to stay."

Fantasy Tip: Allen has had some difficulties staying healthy early in his career, and that might weigh into the decision whether Indy brings him back. Plus, they have Coby Fleener, who has proven more than capable to do the job.

Colts | Dwayne Allen placed on IR

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 14:54:58 -0800

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (calf) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Dec. 30. The team also promoted TE Erik Swoope from the practice squad to the active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Coby Fleener ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) should receive most of the work at tight end in Week 17 but is not a great option because of the team's quarterback situation.

Colts | Dwayne Allen has sore eye

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 14:07:56 -0800

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (eye) is dealing with a sore eye after being poked by Denver Broncos CB Aqib Talib in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for Allen, being poked in the eye was his most noticeable occurrence in a win versus the Denver Broncos. He ended the game without a catch and has only caught nine passes on the season. It's probably safe to drop Allen at this point in the season.

Colts | Dwayne Allen nearly invisible

Mon, 02 Nov 2015 22:38:24 -0800

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen had just one catch for four yards in the Week 8 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 2. He was targeted three times.

Fantasy Tip: Allen ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has really struggled, and Coby Fleener ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has passed him up as the FantasyScore option among Indy tight ends.

Colts | Dwayne Allen probable Thursday

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 11:20:06 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 5 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Allen is a bye-week fill-in in traditional leagues this week. If Matt Hasselbeck (illness) plays over Andrew Luck (shoulder), Allen has more upside because Hasselbeck has been pretty TE-friendly in his career.

Colts | Dwayne Allen a full participant

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 15:39:58 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Tuesday, Oct. 6.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking like Allen ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will have a chance to return on a short week against the Houston Texans. Despite only three catches (six targets) and 17 yards on the year, Allen could be a successful sleeper pick at tight end with Andrew Luck expected back Thursday night.

Colts | Dwayne Allen a full participant

Mon, 05 Oct 2015 16:53:25 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) was a full participant in practice Monday, Oct. 5.

Fantasy Tip: It's good news that Allen is back at practice for a walkthrough early during a short week, but he'll still be questionable for the Thursday night game against the Houston Texans, which makes him too risky for FantasyScore gamers.
