The Indianapolis Colts selected Stanford tight end Coby Fleener with the 34th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Fantasy analysis: Fleener is reunited with Andrew Luck, and fantasy owners couldn't be happier. The pairing could produce impressive results on the stats sheet for years to come.
Indy clearly needs to surround Luck with weapons, and what better place to start? At 6-foot-6, 247 pounds, Fleener's athleticism and size will create mismatches in the open field. He is a threat around the stripe, but his blocking skills need to improve.
Familiarity with Luck may be the best thing he has going for him as a rookie, and it is no secret that inexperienced passers tend to rely on the position. Fleener is an ideal No. 2 fantasy tight end if you're looking for a high-upside roll of the dice.
