Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener defended the trade that sent RB Trent Richardson to the team. "I still think it was a great trade for us," Fleener said. "Our front office has done an awesome job putting together teams from Day One. I think that acquisition is going to be huge for us and pay dividends in the future."
Fleener dismissed the idea that Richardson's play was a dissapointment.
"Let me stop you right there," he said. "I think part of it is you're coming into an offense that's probably one of the most complex in the NFL. And so for him to play a week after being there was impressive because it took me a year and a half to learn the offense. I think this camp will do him a lot of good, and then you guys can judge him after that."

Tennessee Titans SS George Wilson will likely start in place of the suspended FS Michael Griffin in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts. Wilson is usually tasked with shadowing the opposing tight end, although that was not the strategy last time these two teams met. Wilson played just one snap against TE Coby Fleener, who caught eight passes and a game-high 107 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Fleener could be a sleeper tight end option for this reason. Don't forget about him.

Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (head) was being evaluated for a concussion after the team's Week 9 game, but head coach Chuck Pagano said Heyward-Bey was cleared.
Fantasy Tip: This is something to keep an eye on during the week. If he can't play in Week 10, Griff Whalen and Coby Fleener will become more important options in the passing game.

One NFL personnel executive said Friday, Nov. 1, that he "would expect a heightened feature (role) of (TE Coby Fleener)" with WR Reggie Wayne (knee) out for the season.
Fantasy Tip: Fleener is still only considered a Top 20 fantasy option at his position until he steps up and does a little more. The Colts will be facing the No. 1 defense of the Houston Texans in Week 9, so it will be a tall order for Fleener to step up his production Sunday.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) will miss the rest of the season because he is scheduled to undergo hip surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Coby Fleener will become the Colts' starting tight end with the loss of Allen. Fleener has had a solid start to the season and should become more involved in the passing game. He should be considered a borderline starter most weeks that could be a flex option as well.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) is inactive for the team's Week 2 game.
Fantasy Tip: Coby Fleener will start at tight end for the Colts and will receive a bump in his fantasy value but should not be more than a flex option this week.
Fri, 13 Sep 2013 14:03:50 -0700
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) is listed as questionable for Week 2, but it's not looking good for his chances to play.
Fantasy Tip: Coby Fleener's value will shoot up if Allen doesn't play, as expected. The Miami Dolphins have a stout pass rush, so Fleener could be used as an extra blocker on occasion. Keep that in mind.
Fri, 06 Sep 2013 12:48:49 -0700
Indianapolis Colts TEs Dwayne Allen (foot) and Coby Fleener (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 6, and are listed as probable for Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: Allen likely will be the more valuable tight end entering Week 1. Allen should be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end or a flex option. Fleener likely will not be an option for the starting lineup this week.
Thu, 05 Sep 2013 13:43:02 -0700
Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (foot), TE Coby Fleener (knee), OG Mike McGlynn (knee), OT Anthony Castonzo (knee), LB Mario Harvey (knee) and SS Joe Lefeged (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 5.
Wed, 04 Sep 2013 14:11:30 -0700
Indianapolis Colts WR David Reed (head), TE Dwayne Allen (foot), TE Coby Fleener (knee), OG Mike McGlynn (knee), LB Mario Harvey (knee) and SS Joe Lefeged (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 4.
