Colts | Andrew Luck looking to his tight ends

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 18:59:28 -0700

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck targeted TE Dwayne Allen and TE Jack Doyle a combined 10 times in Week 1, resulting in eight completions for 88 yards and three touchdowns, and Luck said he wants to attack defenses in multiple ways this season.

Fantasy Tip: The Colts draw a tough matchup with Denver in Week 2, and if you have a decent alternative to Allen, you should plug them in.

Colts | Dwayne Allen cleared to practice

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 11:16:57 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) was back at practice Monday, Sept. 5, after missing a few practices last week.

Fantasy Tip: The oft-injured Allen has huge touchdown upside when he is healthy, although staying on the field has been a problem for one of Andrew Luck's top red-zone targets. Owners can feel free to view him as a low-end TE1, but they should make sure to snag a quality backup as well.

Colts | Dwayne Allen may be on field more

Fri, 27 May 2016 09:28:56 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen could see the field considerably more in the upcoming season, as new offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski may elect not to use as many multiple tight-end sets as former offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. The players listed behind Allen on the depth chart are all unproven, being TEs Jack Doyle, Erik Swoope and Darion Griswold.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has flashed notable potential over the past few years, but was never really able to break out while splitting time with Coby Fleener. Now that Fleener is out of town, Allen will be in a nice position to make his mark, and as long as a healthy Andrew Luck remains under center, he could end up being a great value pick later in drafts. Certainly keep an eye on this situation.

Colts | Dwayne Allen staying with Colts

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 16:52:51 -0800

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen agreed to terms with the Colts Monday, March 7, on a four-year deal worth $29.4 million, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Allen had a fairly quiet 2015 season with 16 receptions for 109 yards and one touchdown. Allen could receive a bigger role in the offense if the team is not able to re-sign impending free-agent Coby Fleener. Allen can be a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues if he receives most of the playing time at tight end but his value will drop if Fleener returns.

Giants | New York could add tight end

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 16:10:09 -0800

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent TE Andrew Quarless and Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen could be on the New York Giants' radar this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants tendered Larry Donnell today, but he is still rehabilitating his neck injury and New York could use some more help at the position. Allen would provide more upside if he joins, but neither of the three of them is worth TE1 consideration right now.

Colts | Dwayne Allen feels he'll be back

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 23:25:29 -0800

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen is hopeful of avoiding free agency and staying with the team. "Hopefully we don't get to that point," Allen said in a radio interview. "It's in my gut that I'm here (next season)."

Fantasy Tip: Allen has been productive when he is in the lineup, but he has had a lot of difficulty staying healthy. The team also has Coby Fleener, so it remains to be seen if the Colts are as fond of Allen as he is of the organization.

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.
