Colts | Coby Fleener not involved

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 18:18:49 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener played 46 snaps in Week 2 but was not targeted once, and he has one catch for five yards through two games this season.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener ($4,500, 9.0%) and fellow tight end Dwayne Allen ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) have combined for just four catches through two games, and even with Allen possibly missing a Week 3 matchup against the Tennessee Titans, Fleener isnít worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore until the Indianapolis offense returns to form.

Colts | Coby Fleener to finish up

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 19:17:39 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener will be the top tight end for the second half of the Week 2 game against the New York Jets Monday, Sept. 21, with TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) out for the rest of the game.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) proved he is more than capable last season when Allen was sidelined, and he could be a good FantasyScore option if Allen is forced to miss any addition time.

Colts | Coby Fleener could return soon

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:24:07 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener (knee) will hopefully return to practice at some point next week, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye on Fleener's status over the next week or so to see if he will be ready for the start of the regular season. Fleener should have a solid role in the passing game and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end or a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.

Colts | Coby Fleener wants to improve play

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:45:30 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener said he wants to be a more consistent player and is looking to limit his mistakes on the field. "Your flubs are aired in front of the whole world. Whether you're sitting at a desk all day or whether you're playing football, nobody wants to make the 'Not Top 10.' Unfortunately I've been there and I'm trying to limit that as much as possible."

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is coming off a solid 2014 season with 774 receiving yards and eight touchdowns but will have to share targets with several other options in the passing game. Fleener could be a low-end No. 1 tight end or a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Colts | Coby Fleener enters last year of deal

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 22:33:55 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener is entering the final season of his rookie deal, and he is scheduled to become a free agent in spring 2016. He has established himself as one of the most criticial components of the Indy passing offense.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has emerged as a Top 10 fantasy option at his position, perhaps Top 5 if he takes another step forward in 2015. Playing with his college quarterback Andrew Luck has done wonders for him, and moving away from Indy would likely be a bad career move. Look for Fleener and the Colts to figure out a way to get a deal done for the long term.

Colts | Dwayne Allen sees more snaps

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 15:25:06 -0800

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen played 53 of the team's 68 offensive snaps in Week 15 against the Houston Texans, and TE Coby Fleener played in 40 of the snaps. It was necessary to have Allen on the field for much of the day in order to help block DE J.J. Watt. Allen also had a touchdown in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Allen ($5,500) clearly is back close to full health, which will push Fleener's FantasyScore value down significantly to end the season. Allen should be a pretty solid play this week in daily games, too, as the Dallas Cowboys have been vulnerable to tight ends in 2014.

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.
