New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener caught two passes for 31 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 16.

Saints | Coby Fleener disappoints again

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 22:01:28 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener posted two receptions for just 10 yards on three targets in the Week 15 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has disappeared over the past two games, posting just three grabs for 16 yards on six targets. He has 26 or fewer yards in four of his past six outings and can no longer be trusted outside of the deepest of fantasy formats.

Saints | Coby Fleener mostly non-existent

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 22:54:01 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener posted just one reception for six yards on three targets in the Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener tied a season-low in yardage and catches with his worst performance since Week 1. He has visited the end zone just once over the past eight games and he can only be trusted as a TE2 in most fantasy leagues right now.

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.
