Saints | Drew Brees likes Coby Fleener

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 12:47:04 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener has an uncanny ability to separate and get open, according to QB Drew Brees. "There's always a place to throw the ball where he can get it," Brees said. Fleener was targeted eight times during 7-on-7 drills and 11-on-11 drills this week -- the same number of targets as WRs Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is one of the more intriguing options at tight end this season with his new team. In one of the most pass-happy offenses in the NFL, he's a mid- to low-end TE1, even if he still has some things to learn.

Saints | Coby Fleener could help in red zone

Mon, 30 May 2016 12:58:57 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener will be used as a receiver first and will hopefully help in third-down and red-zone situations, according to head coach Sean Payton, much like the way Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham was used when he played for the Saints.

Fantasy Tip: The price may be high for Fleener this offseason as the excitement builds with him in one of the most pass-happy offenses in the NFL. Fleener is definitely in the TE1 conversation heading into next season, but don't draft him too early.

Colts | Indy's No. 2 TE job Jack Doyle's to lose

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 18:51:21 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle will have the first shot at being the No. 2 tight end in 2016 with TE Coby Fleener signing with the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Even in an expanded role, Doyle is unlikely to make a worthwhile impact for fantasy owners unless Dwayne Allen misses time for some reason.

Saints | Coby Fleener moving to Saints

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 15:56:21 -0800

Free-agent TE Coby Fleener (Colts) agreed to sign a five-year deal worth roughly $36 million with the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, March 9, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener didn't do a whole lot with Indy alongside Dwayne Allen, as the former Stanford product caught 54 passes for 491 yards and three touchdowns in 2015. His move to New Orleans should do wonders for his fantasy value in a high-flying passing offense with Drew Brees still around. Fleener will likely be an undervalued low-end TE1.

Saints | Coby Fleener a target of Saints

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 13:13:40 -0800

Free-agent TE Coby Fleener (Colts) is drawing interest from the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is looking for a new home following the re-signing of Dwayne Allen in Indianapolis. He has solid touchdown potential, but his hands have been unreliable for the most part so far in his career. He'll have better fantasy value if he signs with a potent Saints offense, but he still wouldn't be a TE1.

Colts | Coby Fleener not close to re-signing

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 06:25:53 -0800

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Coby Fleener has not made a lot of progress in contract talks with the Colts at this point, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener probably will receive some interest if he hits the free-agent market and could find a starting job. Fleener posted decent numbers this season but probably would not be more than a No. 2 tight end in most drafts next season.

Colts | Unlikely to use franchise tag

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 09:14:05 -0800

The Indianapolis Colts are highly unlikely to use the franchise tag this year because they don't have any marquee players in line for free agency. PK Adam Vinatieri, TE Coby Fleener and LB Jerrell Freeman are their main free agents, and they are all replaceable.

Colts | Coby Fleener's possible deal

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 13:28:31 -0800

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener will likely require a multi-year deal worth around $4 million per season in order to stay with the Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is expected to stay with Indianaplois; he seems to be favored over fellow TE Dwayne Allen. There is an outside chance that Fleener signs elsewhere, but that looks highly unlikely at this point. Consider Fleener a TE2.

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 | 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.
