Colts | Coby Fleener earning bigger role?

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 11:17:11 -0800

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener had a breakout game in the team's Week 11 loss to the New England Patriots, and he may be earning a bigger role in the offense, even if TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener had a season-high seven catches (seven targets) for 144 yards while the Patriots seondary was focusing on shutting down the Colts receivers. It helped that Allen was hobbled in this one, but Fleener could see more consistent targets down the stretch now.

Colts | Coby Fleener defends Trent Richardson trade

Fri, 31 Jan 2014 11:58:31 -0800

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."

Titans | George Wilson likely to start

Tue, 26 Nov 2013 10:41:07 -0800

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.

Colts | Darrius Heyward-Bey has head injury

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 09:35:24 -0800

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.

Colts | Coby Fleener expected to step up

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 20:16:21 -0700

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.

Colts | Dwayne Allen to miss rest of season

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 09:12:36 -0700

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.

Colts | Dwayne Allen to miss Week 2

Sun, 15 Sep 2013 08:52:34 -0700

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.

Colts | Dwayne Allen not expected to play

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.

Colts | Top two TEs listed as probable

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.

Colts | Coby Fleener has a concussion

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 14:14:26 -0700

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener (concussion) has been diagnosed with a concussion and has begun the NFL concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: Even though he currently has his own injury issues, Dwayne Allen would be next in line if the concussions issues linger for Fleener. Allen, who is expected to be ready for Week 1, should only be considered as a bye week replacement at this point.

Colts | Coby Fleener having strong camp

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 09:51:48 -0700

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano praised TE Coby Fleener for his strong start to training camp. "He's a mismatch. He's a handful for these guys," Pagano said.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is not quite a must-start fantasy option just yet, but he apparently is showing improvement. He can be a great option as a bye-week replacement or when your primary option is injured or has a difficult matchup.

Colts | Coby Fleener progressing

Thu, 30 May 2013 08:53:08 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener caught a pair of deep balls from QB Andrew Luck in practice Wednesday, May 29. Fleener said he's remembering more and more of the traits from new offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton, who ran the West Coast offense Fleener ran with Luck at the Stanford helm. Hamilton is expected to involve the position more often than his predecessor, Bruce Arians, did. "What did he have 20-, 30-some catches last year? That should double," head coach Chuck Pagano said.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the projected increase in TE involvement, Dwayne Allen's presence limits Fleener's upside. Neither should be considered more than a fantasy backup you can't rely on week to week, but each has the potential to serve as a solid fill-in for byes and injuries.
