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 shows signs of life

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 19:27:35 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener caught five passes for 91 yards in a in a 34-31 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: It was the first time since Week 1 that Fleener has topped 50 yards, so don't expect another performance like this any time soon.

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.

Saints | Coby Fleener struggles in Week 8

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 15:02:18 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener caught one pass for minus one yard against the Chicago Bears in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has played well at times this season but has not reached the end zone since Week 2. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better option for their starting tight end spot.

Saints | Coby Fleener becoming a non-factor

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 11:33:18 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener has caught just three passes for 42 yards in his last three games. Furthermore, he was targeted only once in the Saints' 52-38 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is clearly not an integral part of New Orleans' game plan on a week-to-week basis. He scored a touchdown in each of his first two games but has been invisible since then. It might be hard to drop him since he's technically the starting tight end in one of the NFL's best offenses, but you certainly can't start him.

Saints | Coby Fleener catches two passes

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 10:25:03 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener caught two passes for 21 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and has posted more than 35 yards in only one game. He could be a No. 2 tight end for owners but should not be a starting option most weeks.

Saints | Just one touch for Coby Fleener

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:43:29 -0700

New Orleans TE Coby Fleener managed just one reception for 21 yards on his only target in Week 3 at Carolina.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener had found the end zone with a total of eight catches (and 10 targets) through his first two games, so this was a disappointment for fantasy owners. He'll look to get back on track in Week 4 against the Dolphins in London, but treat him as more of a TE2 in most fantasy formats.

Saints | Coby Fleener gets into end zone

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 19:02:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener gathered three receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has found the end zone in each of his first two games to re-emerge as a useful fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams. He'll look to keep the streak rolling into Week 3 in Carolina.

Saints | Coby Fleener logs five catches, touchdown

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 20:36:11 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener recorded five catches for 54 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 1 game Monday, Sept. 11, versus the Minnesota Vikings. His six targets tied for second-most on the team.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener looked pretty good here, delivering New Orleans' only touchdown on the evening. While he did disappear at times last year in his first season with the Saints, it looks like Fleener will be one of Drew Brees' more consistent weapons in the passing game, especially while Willie Snead remains suspended. Fleener can serve as a fine lower-end TE1 as a result.

Saints | Coby Fleener could be more involved

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 10:00:42 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener should see his role "expand a bit" while Willie Snead serves his three-game suspension, according to ESPN.com's Mike Triplett.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener disappointed owners in a big way last year as the expectation was he would thrive in the Jimmy Graham role in New Orleans, but all he really did was remain the same kind of fantasy player he was throughout his career with the Indianapolis Colts. Expect more of the same this season, which means he will be a somewhat serviceable TE2 with unpredictable peaks and valleys.

Saints | Coby Fleener out Friday

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 08:04:22 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener (undisclosed) is out of practice Friday, Aug. 4, for an unknown reason.

Fantasy Tip: That's three days in a row for Fleener, which lends us to believe he may be dealing with an injury. He's a TE2 in fantasy, but Josh Hill could steal looks from him.

Saints | Coby Fleener more prepared for 2017

Sat, 27 May 2017 21:16:19 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener said already understanding the terminology of the offense will be a big advantage in his second season with the Saints. "So being able to revamp and feel comfortable going out there and not having to worry about what play call is gonna come up is a huge benefit," Fleener said.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener's first year with the Saints was a bit of a disappointment, but the departure of Brandin Cooks could free up more targets for the tight end. The safe approach is to grab him as a TE2, but Fleener has TE1 upside.

Saints | New Orleans optimistic about Coby Fleener

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 13:42:46 -0800

The New Orleans Saints believe TE Coby Fleener will be a bigger part of the offense in 2017 because he will be more comfortable with the offensive scheme and will continue to build a chemistry with QB Drew Brees.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener finished this season with 60 catches, 631 yards and three touchdowns. He will have a role in the passing game but will have to share targets with the team's top three receivers. Owners in most fantasy leagues should consider Fleener as a No. 2 tight end.

Saints | Coby Fleener finishes with two catches

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 15:54:24 -0800

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

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has not made much of an impact over the last three games and has been limited to five catches and 46 yards during that span. He should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

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.

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.

Saints | Coby Fleener struggling with playbook

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 14:57:12 -0700

New Orleans TE Coby Fleener reportedly admitted recently he is still adjusting to his new playbook, according to ESPN's Mike Triplett.

Fantasy Tip: It partially explains why Fleener had a slow preseason. While the Saints' prized free-agent signing may start out slow as a result of not having the playbook down pat, New Orleans needs him too much for that to remain the case for too long. He should remain firmly on the midrange TE1 radar.

Saints | Coby Fleener not reliable enough

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 07:16:39 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener hasn't been reliable enough catching passes and isn't on the same page with QB Drew Brees on some routes, according to beat writer Larry Holder. TE Josh Hill has been more involved in the passing game in recent practices.

Fantasy Tip: That breakout season for Fleener to thrust him into the fantasy spotlight is in question now. He has a lot of tools, and the offense has a history of making fantasy stars. Fleener will need to pick it up to rekindle some of the upside he had entering camp. He's a low-end TE1 for now, and Hill is a TE2 that could become a deep sleeper.

Saints | Coby Fleener still work in progress

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 19:53:46 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener is still getting situation in his team's offense, and he continues to make adjustments. "I'd say it's an ongoing progression," head coach Sean Payton said Monday, Aug. 22. "I think, man, there's some plays that are real good, and then there's some plays where we've got to be a little bit more detailed and that's something that I know he's got to work on."

Fantasy Tip: No matter what the depth charts have been saying, Fleener will be well ahead of Josh Hill and Michael Hoomanwanui, and should be a the second or third option in the pass game once the regular season gets rolling. He is being drafted as a TE1 in most fantasy leagues, and is a good consolation prize for those who miss out on the likes of Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, Jordan Reed, etc.

Saints | Coby Fleener works with starters

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 16:37:14 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener lined up with the first-team offense at practice Wednesday, August 17.

Fantasy Tip: There was a little concern recently when Fleener was listed as a backup tight end on the team's depth chart, but this news should put owners at ease. Fleener will head into the new campaign as the starting tight end in New Orleans, and considering what Jimmy Graham did there in the past, the former Indianapolis Colt will have potential to be one of the most valuable players at this position in 2016. He should be on the radar in all formats.

Saints | Coby Fleener building chemistry with QB

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 11:40:23 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener said he has been working on building a chemistry with QB Drew Brees during the early part of training camp. Brees said he believes Fleener could catch a lot of passes in 2016 because he will have favorable matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener likely will be one of the top options in the passing game this season and should continue to improve his chemistry with Brees during the preseason. Owners should be considered as a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Saints | Coby Fleener could be second option

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 10:32:03 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener could be the second option in the passing game behind WR Brandin Cooks.

Fantasy Tip: It could boil down to how many snaps Willie Sneed loses to Michael Thomas in two-receiver sets. Either way, Fleener figures to be spotlighted on offense. Fleener is two years removed from an eight-touchdown season before his numbers drastically fell off as the Indianapolis Colts struggled altogether. Fleener is a low-end TE1 that could have a breakthrough.

Saints | Drew Brees likes Coby Fleener

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 12:47:04 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener has an uncanny ability to separate and get open, according to QB Drew Brees. "There's always a place to throw the ball where he can get it," Brees said. Fleener was targeted eight times during 7-on-7 drills and 11-on-11 drills this week -- the same number of targets as WRs Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is one of the more intriguing options at tight end this season with his new team. In one of the most pass-happy offenses in the NFL, he's a mid- to low-end TE1, even if he still has some things to learn.

Saints | Coby Fleener could help in red zone

Mon, 30 May 2016 12:58:57 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener will be used as a receiver first and will hopefully help in third-down and red-zone situations, according to head coach Sean Payton, much like the way Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham was used when he played for the Saints.

Fantasy Tip: The price may be high for Fleener this offseason as the excitement builds with him in one of the most pass-happy offenses in the NFL. Fleener is definitely in the TE1 conversation heading into next season, but don't draft him too early.

Colts | Indy's No. 2 TE job Jack Doyle's to lose

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 18:51:21 -0700

Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle will have the first shot at being the No. 2 tight end in 2016 with TE Coby Fleener signing with the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Even in an expanded role, Doyle is unlikely to make a worthwhile impact for fantasy owners unless Dwayne Allen misses time for some reason.

Saints | Coby Fleener moving to Saints

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 15:56:21 -0800

Free-agent TE Coby Fleener (Colts) agreed to sign a five-year deal worth roughly $36 million with the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, March 9, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener didn't do a whole lot with Indy alongside Dwayne Allen, as the former Stanford product caught 54 passes for 491 yards and three touchdowns in 2015. His move to New Orleans should do wonders for his fantasy value in a high-flying passing offense with Drew Brees still around. Fleener will likely be an undervalued low-end TE1.

Saints | Coby Fleener a target of Saints

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 13:13:40 -0800

Free-agent TE Coby Fleener (Colts) is drawing interest from the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is looking for a new home following the re-signing of Dwayne Allen in Indianapolis. He has solid touchdown potential, but his hands have been unreliable for the most part so far in his career. He'll have better fantasy value if he signs with a potent Saints offense, but he still wouldn't be a TE1.

Colts | Coby Fleener not close to re-signing

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 06:25:53 -0800

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Coby Fleener has not made a lot of progress in contract talks with the Colts at this point, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener probably will receive some interest if he hits the free-agent market and could find a starting job. Fleener posted decent numbers this season but probably would not be more than a No. 2 tight end in most drafts next season.

Colts | Unlikely to use franchise tag

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 09:14:05 -0800

The Indianapolis Colts are highly unlikely to use the franchise tag this year because they don't have any marquee players in line for free agency. PK Adam Vinatieri, TE Coby Fleener and LB Jerrell Freeman are their main free agents, and they are all replaceable.

Colts | Coby Fleener's possible deal

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 13:28:31 -0800

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener will likely require a multi-year deal worth around $4 million per season in order to stay with the Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener is expected to stay with Indianaplois; he seems to be favored over fellow TE Dwayne Allen. There is an outside chance that Fleener signs elsewhere, but that looks highly unlikely at this point. Consider Fleener a TE2.

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.

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 | Coby Fleener looking at free agency

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 13:55:05 -0800

Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent TE Coby Fleener will be entering free agency as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Fleener nor Dwayne Allen carried much fantasy value throughout the 2015 season, although Fleener played and produced more because of Allen dealing with injuries. Both will be unrestricted free agents, and Allen has already expressed his desire to return to the Colts. Indy may want them both back, if not just to have one for when the other is injured.

Colts | Coby Fleener finishes strong

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 15:07:43 -0800

Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener caught seven passes for 88 yards, including a 57-yard touchdown, in a 30-24 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Fleener has had an up-and-down season, but hopefully this is a move in the right direction. He led the team in receiving, and if Colts coach Chuck Pagano returns (or someone else takes over) hopefully the tight end spot can be utilized very well.
