Logjam hurting Colts tight ends' values


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) The Colts have two very solid, productive tight ends, but that might just mean they have none, at least as far as Fantasy owners are concerned.

Coby Fleener looked like a big-time playmaker in Dwayne Allen's absence, hauling in six catches for 155 yards and two touchdowns in two games. Since Allen's return, however, he has just 88 yards on seven catches in two games, including just two for 32 in Week 15 against the Texans.

Allen was the more productive of the two Sunday, hauling in a touchdown, however he had just two receptions of his own for 16 yards in total.  In all, he has just 21 yards since making his return from an injury.

If either Allen or Fleener was the go-to option at tight end, they would probably emerge fairly quickly as a consistent Fantasy starter. However, it's hard to rely on either when they are splitting work. At this point, Fleener has the bigger role, and looks like the better choice, but neither is a must-start Fantasy option for Week 16 against the Cowboys. 


Three Colts receivers pitch in to Week 14 victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Several Colts receivers not named T.Y. Hilton managed to contribute to a comeback win in Cleveland on Sunday.

The best of the bunch was tight end Coby Fleener, who caught half of his 10 targets for 56 yards. Also chipping in were Donte Moncrief (3-33) and Dwayne Allen (1-5).


Coby Fleener becomes the favorite again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2014) After regressing to just two catches for 28 yards in Week 12, Colts tight end Coby Fleener got back to being quarterback Andrew Luck's go-to guy Week 13 against Washington, catching four passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns. He also led the team with seven targets. It was the third time in four games that he was either the Colts' most targeted receiver or their most prolific one.

And clearly, it wasn't just a bunch of dink-and-dunk stuff. He showed genuine big-play potential -- something you don't often see at the tight end position -- getting open along the sideline on a 30-yard score in the first quarter and outrunning a couple defenders on a 73-yard catch-and-run in the third. His quarterback got him the ball, and he made plays with it, which is what separates the good tight ends from the great ones in Fantasy.

After his disappointing performance last week, I said Fleener was too low in the pecking order to deliver big numbers every week, and it's true he has to share the spotlight with T.Y. Hilton, Reggie Wayne, Donte Moncrief and, when he returns from injury, fellow tight end Dwayne Allen. But it's also true Luck's trust in him appears to be growing, which will only move him up the pecking order.

At a thin position, you should plan to start him Week 14 at Cleveland and beyond.


Colts tight end Coby Fleener scores twice in Week 13 win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Colts tight end Coby Fleener caught four receptions on seven targets for 127 yards and two touchdowns to help the Colts beat the Redskins 49-27 Sunday.

The two touchdowns were the first multiple touchdown game of his career. It was Fleener’s second 100-yard receiving game of the season.

The Colts next play at Cleveland Week 14.


Coby Fleener doesn't seize opportunity


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) Coming off the best two-game stretch of his career and having the tight end spot all to himself with Dwayne Allen sidelined by a sprained ankle, the Colts' Coby Fleener seemed poised for big numbers Week 12 against Jacksonville. Instead, he caught two passes for 28 yards. 

It was a far cry from the seven catches for 144 yards he had in Week 11 and the four catches for 77 yards and a touchdown he had in Week 10. And in those games -- or at least parts of them -- Allen was still in the mix.

True, Fleener wasn't solely responsible for his lack of production. Quarterback Andrew Luck didn't play his best, throwing for less than 300 yards for just the second time this season. Still, three players got more targets than Fleener's four, and another, Donte Moncrief, got just as many.

As prolific as the Colts passing game can be, Fleener is just too low in the pecking order to deliver big numbers every week. At a thin position, he's been productive enough to start in standard 12-team leagues, but he's on the lower end of the startable tight ends.


Colts get offensive contributions in Week 12 victory


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Several Colts contributed offensively in the 23-3 win over the Jaguars. Among them, rookie wideout Donte Moncrief caught all four of his targets for 38 yards and had a 4-yard rush. Tight end Coby Fleener hauled in two of his four targets for 28 yards.

Receiver Hakeem Nicks had an 16-yard grab, and tight end Jack Doyle made two receptions for 8 yards. They'll all face the Redskins in Week 13.


Reggie Wayne on Coby Fleener: 'There's no going back from here'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) With Dwayne Allen unable to practice this week, Colts tight end Coby Fleener will likely be the primary option at tight in Week 12 against the Jaguars. Fleener caught all seven of his targets for a career-high 144 yards in a Week 11 defeat to the Patriots in Week 11. When asked about Fleener's production on his weekly radio show, teammate Reggie Wayne said "there's no going back from here," per the team's official website.

"We've seen this in Coby in spurts. But like I told him, 'There's no going back. There's no going backwards. From here on out, you just set the standard. You just set the table so now everybody is going to expect you to perform this way every week. Coby is to the point now where everything should be going and we believe it is. He showed that the other night."


Colts TE Coby Fleener racks up 144 yards in Week 11 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Colts tight end Coby Fleener caught all seven of his targets for 144 yards in his team's 42-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 11.

Fleener had multiple excellent grabs Sunday, with his longest play coming on a 45-yard strike in which he went uncovered down the sideline. His most impressive catch came three plays later, as he hauled in a 22-yard pass while twisting out of bounds on a play that was upheld upon replay.

Fleener has been a favorite target of Andrew Luck over the last two games, racking up 18 targets in all, and he could continue to see extended work depending on the severity of Dwayne Allen's injury. The Colts are set to face the Jaguars in Week 12.


Coby Fleener not a forgotten man


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/4/2014) Colts quarterback Andrew Luck targeted starting tight end Dwayne Allen as he was normally would Week 9 at the Giants, completing four passes to him for 48 yards and a touchdown, he made better use of former college teammate Coby Fleener, targeting the second-string tight end a team-high 11 times.

Fleener also led the Colts in receiving yards with 77 and scored his first touchdown in three games. He caught four passes.

While the performance was great to see from a player who should have a natural rapport with his quarterback, it also brought to light just how rarely we see it. The 11 targets were a career high, yes, but Fleener hasn't had even six since Week 3 at Jacksonville.

And with Reggie Wayne healthy again, Donte Moncrief recently proving his worth, Allen still in the picture and T.Y. Hilton the best of them all, I'm not sure Fleener has the leeway for more than four or five targets most weeks.

Even in this game, he played only 52 percent of the Colts' snaps. He remains no more than a bye-week replacement in Fantasy.


Both Colts tight ends score against Giants


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Colts tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen drew a combined 16 targets and each scored a touchdown in Monday's 40-24 win over the Giants. Fleener caught four of 11 targets for 77 yards, while Allen hauled in four of five targets for 48 yards.

The Giants were slow to challenge Fleener's questionable 21-yard catch in the second quarter. Getting the next snap off quickly, quarterback Andrew Luck found Fleener again, this time for a 32-yard touchdown. Fleener's 77 yards were the third-most of his career.

Allen continues to be a touchdown machine and has now scored in seven of nine games. He broke free for a 35-yard reception down the seam in the third quarter and caught a 2-yard touchdown later in the period.

Fleener and Allen are on a bye Week 10.


Several Colts make minor mark on Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Colts wideout Hakeen Nicks gained a starting spot for Sunday in Pittsburgh due to the absence of Reggie Wayne and did little with it.

Nicks managed just one catch for 27 yards as one of several small offensive contributors. Also in that group was wideout Griff Whalen, who caught one pass for 23 yards, and running back Dan Herron, who chipped in with a reception for five yards while adding two yards on one carry. Tight end Coby Fleener also caught one for four yards.


Hitting the wire for tight ends


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With how up-and-down many tight ends have been this season, identifying the right ones on waivers can be a key. In his Week 8 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg tries to pin down the best ones for you to target this week.

Ravens tight end Owen Daniels, coming off a six-catch performance with a touchdown in Week 7, is the top pick for the 41 percent of CBSSports.com leagues in which he is available. A big reason why is a matchup against the Bengals, who have allowed four double-digit Fantasy scoring games by tight ends this season.

The remainder of the top five for the week is rounded out by Coby Fleener of the Colts (44 percent owned), Charles Clay of the Dolphins (34 percent), Jared Cook of the Rams (47 percent) and Kyle Rudolph of the Vikings (32 percent), who makes more sense as a stash option if you can afford the roster space. 


Trio of Colts tight ends wreak havoc on Bengals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The terrific trio of Colts tight ends played a significant role Sunday in a blanking of Cincinnati.

Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen and Jack Doyle combined for eight receptions for 136 yards. The lone score came courtesy of Allen, who gathered in a sideline pass five minutes into the third quarter and raced 32 yards into the end zone. He finished with three catches for 52 yards.

Fleener caught four passes for 64 yards while Doyle made the most of his one target for a 20-yard snag.

The threesome will try to wreak havoc on the Steelers in Week 8.


Colts TE Coby Fleener scores third TD of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Colts tight end Coby Fleener got in the end zone, scoring his third touchdown of the season in a comfortable Week 6 victory over the Texans.

Fleener came down with a 4-yard reception at the back of the end zone on the final play of the first quarter. He caught a 7-yard pass three plays prior to the score for his only action of the night. He was targeted four times and finished with two catches for 11 yards and a score in a 33-28 victory. He 150 receiving yards and three touchdowns this season.

The Colts will host the Bengals in Week 7.


Colts' Coby Fleener limited to one grab Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Colts tight end Coby Fleener was limited to one grab in a Week 5 win at home over the Ravens.

Fleener was held without a grab in the first three quarters before catching a 30-yard pass from Andrew Luck in the fourth quarter. He was targeted twice in a 20-13 victory. He has 11 grabs for 139 yards and two touchdowns on the year.

The Colts will face the Texans in Week 6.


Colts tight ends tough to pin down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Colts have managed to find ways to keep both tight ends involved in the offense, but the Ravens found a way to disrupt the duo of Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener in Week 5.

Allen was typically productive, as always, as he hauled in four passes for 59 yards and his fourth touchdown of the season. However, Fleener was targeted just twice in the passing game, hauling in his lone pass for 30 yards, after scoring in consecutive games.

The Colts use their tight ends a lot, but any kind of timeshare was going to limit their effectiveness as a tandem before long. At this point, Allen looks like the primary option, but Fleener has also been targeted more often than him in three of the team's five games so far, so there is no clear answer here.

Andrew Luck loves looking to his tight ends near the goal line, with six touchdowns split between the two. However, if you can afford to, neither player looks like an especially reliable option on a weekly basis. Whether you rely on Allen or Fleener, you will be rolling the dice every week.

  


No sense choosing between Colts tight end duo


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/2014) Torn between Colts tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener? It's easy to see why. Both scored a touchdown for the second straight game Week 4 against the Titans, but neither stands out between the 20s. Allen had 64 receiving yards in Week 1, but otherwise, neither has topped 50 in a game.

Well, the good news is that in Week 5 against the Ravens, you probably don't want either. Through four games, the Ravens have allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to tight ends and have yet to have one score on them.

Maybe one of Allen and Fleener reverses the trend this week, but which one? And what happens if he doesn't? I don't know about you, but I don't like the thought of getting two measly points from my tight end spot.

Owners in 12-team leagues can do better. With the emergence of Larry Donnell, Delanie Walker, Travis Kelce, Heath Miller and even Clay Harbor, tight ends aren't exactly in short supply.


Coby Fleener scores in two straight games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Colts tight end Coby Fleener recorded a touchdown for a second straight game during a 41-17 win Week 4 vs. Tennessee. He finished with two catches for 26 yards in the win.

Fleener's second touchdown this season came on a 2-yard reception with 4:02 left in the third quarter, which gave Indianapolis a 34-10 lead.

The Colts are back in action Week 5 vs. Baltimore.


Colts still getting both TE involved


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Which Colts tight end should you start? At this point, the answer might be, "both."

For the second straight week, Andrew Luck found both Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen for touchdowns Sunday, in a 41-17 blowout win over the Titans. The duo has combined for five touchdowns through four games, with both having found the end zone at least twice.

Would we prefer if either Fleener or Allen was in a place where they were the only person hauling in passes from Luck? Sure, but the Colts play a ton of snaps with multiple tight ends on the field anyways, so both will see plenty of action. Allen and Fleener should both be considered worthy options, especially as No. 2 Fantasy tight ends. 


Hakeem Nicks, Coby Fleener play a big role Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Colts pass catcher Hakeem Nicks and Coby Fleener each had big games Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Nicks hauled in four balls for 50 yards and a score. Fleener had 49 yards and a touchdown as well. Fleener was Luck's most popular receiver during the game, picking up seven targets. Nicks had a big 29 yard gain, but scored on a 1 yard strike from Luck.

Both players will look for more Week 4 against the Titans. 


Colts' tight ends nearly invisible Monday night


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Colts tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen were barely involved in the passing game Week 2. Fleener caught his only target for 13 yards, while Allen was targeted once without a catch.

They'll visit Jacksonville in Week 3.


Colts get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) The Colts got contributions from a number of players Week 1, including tight end Coby Fleener and rookie receiver Donte Moncrief. Fleener caught three of eight targets for 21 yards, while Moncrief had a 9-yard reception.

Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener cancel each other out


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Dwayne Allen's return from hip surgery means the Colts basically have two starting ends. That's good for Indy and problematic for Fantasy players.

A Colts tight end is a strong bet to catch a touchdown any given week -- good luck trying to predict which one. Until this situation clarifies itself, or until one gets hurt, keep Allen and Coby Fleener reserved in all but the deepest leagues.

If you have to start one Week 1 at Denver, Allen gets the nod as the better all-around talent. Jamey Eisenberg ranks Allen 14th, while Dave Richard pegs him 18th among tight ends.


Coby Fleener finds the end zone


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Colts tight end Coby Fleener broke free down the seam and caught a 21-yard touchdown in the first quarter of Saturday's loss to the Saints. Fleener was targeted four times and finished with two grabs for 31 yards.

He and tight end Dwayne Allen both saw time with the starters.


Colts tight ends do little in preseason opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) The Colts tight ends split playing time pretty evenly during Thursday's preseason opener, though Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener didn't see much action beyond the first few drives.

According to the team's official site, Allen played 10 snaps against the Jets, while Fleener saw the field for eight plays. Both players were on the field for the first play, but neither came away from a reception.

Fleener saw a larger role a year ago, with Allen sidelined for all but one game with a hip injury.
