Saints | Coby Fleener a cut candidate

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 09:27:56 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener is set to count $8 million against the cap with a $6.3 million salary in 2018, making it highly unlikely he will stay with the team unless he agrees to a pay cut on the five-year, $36 million contract he signed in 2016. The Saints choose to release him, they would still be charged $4.8 million in dead money.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener was lost for the season due to injury after Week 12, but he had already long become an afterthought in the offense, as half of his 22 catches for the season came in the first four weeks. While New Orleans would be even more dynamic on offense if it had a field-stretching tight end, it's becoming pretty clear Fleener will not become that guy in Sean Payton's offense. He could be cut in March.

Saints | Coby Fleener ruled out

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 10:25:52 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 13. He is considered week-to-week.

Fantasy Tip: With Fleener out Josh Hill makes for a sneaky option in both daily and seasonal formats. He'll be dirt cheap from a DFS perspective and he'll most likely be available in most leagues if you're hurting at tight end.

Saints | Coby Fleener does not practice

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 15:21:10 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener will have to pass his concussion tests before he is allowed to play, so his status for Week 13 is uncertain. He has been inconsistent over the last several weeks and is a risky option because of the injury. Owners may want to look for other options to use in their lineups.

Saints | Coby Fleener no stranger to concussions

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 14:11:22 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener (concussion) has now suffered five concussions after adding one in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener will need to pass the NFL's protocol to get back on the field, but the fact that he's had that many in his career is scary. Even so, Fleener hasn't been much of a fantasy factor even when he hasn't been ailing and cannot be counted on as a starter.

Saints | Coby Fleener resurfaces in victory

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 17:07:26 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener managed two receptions for 46 yards in Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: The yardage total was Fleener's highest since Week 1 in Minnesota, although he hasn't scored in six consecutive games now. He remains more of a TE2 or bye-week replacement in deeper fantasy leagues at this point.
