Saints | So-so day for Coby Fleener

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 22:19:11 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener posted three grabs for 42 yards on six targets in the Week 9 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has nine grabs for 120 yards over his past three games on 12 targets. He has struggled in his first season in New Orleans, and should only be trusted as a bye-week replacement at this point until he starts to show more consistency.

Saints | Coby Fleener limited to four targets

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 17:54:19 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener had four catches for 36 yards in the Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has been limited to six grabs for 80 yards on six targets over the past two games. That simply will not due for fantasy owners. He'll look to rebound in Week 9 against San Francisco, but it's probably best to go another way for fantasy purposes until Fleener becomes more involved in the offense again.

Saints | Just two grabs for Coby Fleener

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 20:35:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener had a pair of catches for 44 yards in the Week 7 game against the Kansas City Chiefs on just two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has been rather erratic for his fantasy owners this season, posting solid yardage and a total in just two of his games, while disappearing in the other four outings. He has low-end TE1 ability, but he needs to be more consistent. He has another tough matchup in Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks, so you might want to go another way.

Saints | Coby Fleener keeps up good word

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 17:23:27 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener managed six receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: After a bit of a slow start in the Crescent City, Fleener has found the end zone in two of his past three games while totaling 202 yards on 16 grabs over the past three games. He has re-emerged as a TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Saints | Coby Fleener figuring out offense

Fri, 07 Oct 2016 21:20:24 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener's catch rate has climbed from 25 percent in the first two games to 62 percent in the last two games, and tight ends coach Dan Campbell said Fleener is starting to understand what QB Drew Brees is looking for.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has had one big game and three duds thus far, and he remains a boom-or-bust TE1 option heading into Week 5.

Saints | Coby Fleener finally breaks out

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 21:47:13 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener posted seven receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 26. He was targeted 11 times, tied for most in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener went to New Orleans with high expectations from fantasy owners, but he fell on his face in the first two games. For those who gave up on him, there will be a mass waiver wire add in the upcoming week after this performance.

Saints | Drew Brees still confident in Coby Fleener

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 10:34:00 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener is off to a disappointing start in his new home and still building a rapport with QB Drew Brees. However, Brees believes as the two players begin to get more comfortable with each other and the team learns what Fleener does best versus man and zone coverage, the results will come. "We're able to get more specific every day. That's the thing during the offseason; everything is kind of general. It's the general form of the offense and concepts and that kind of thing. It's not until you get down to real game-planning that you get down to some of the nitty gritty and specific," Brees said.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has three catches (for 35 yards) on 12 targets thus far, which speaks to his lack of comfort in the offense. With that said, he represents a solid buy-low. It should be noted that Ben Watson had five catches for 31 yards at this point last season on nine targets before finishing the year with 74 catches for 825 yards. Fleener will have another soft matchup in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, who have yielded 15 catches for 138 yards and three touchdowns on 16 targets to tight ends thus far.

Saints | Coby Fleener off to slow start

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 21:40:52 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener caught two passes for 29 yards on eight targets in Week 2, giving him three catches for 35 yards through two games. He blamed himself in post-game comments, saying he made "three or four" mistakes and singling out a dropped pass on the team's opening drive.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly this isn't the start anyone envisioned when Fleener signed a $36 million deal in free agency, but that investment tells you they're going to give him every chance to work through these issues. Still, in the short run, Fleener is probably better left on your bench until he shows more chemistry with Drew Brees

Saints | Coby Fleener may see more time

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 16:29:53 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener is expected to receive more snaps in Week 2 because of the injury to TE Josh Hill (ankle). Fleener may be asked to block more during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener was limited to six yards in Week 1 but should receive more targets this week against the New York Giants. Fleener could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

Saints | Coby Fleener nearly invisible

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 19:27:17 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener did not get in on the track meet in Week 1 against the Oakland Raiders, posting just one reception for six yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Fleener was just uncomfortable in a new offense, but he did not give fantasy owners a very good show in a 35-34 shootout loss where others had giant stat lines. He has TE1 ability in most fantasy formats, but if he struggles again in Week 2 at N.Y. Giants it isn't a bad idea to look for a replacement. Give him at least one more game, however.
