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. 


Colts have more trust in Coby Fleener


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Colts tight end coach Alfredo Roberts said Coby Fleener was a different player last season than he was as a rookie. Roberts noted Fleener excelled in the postseason with 11 catches for 120 yards and a touchdown. 

"One is a trust factor," Roberts told the team's website. "He grew and he challenged himself to make plays and he showed up, especially in big games."

After catching 26 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie, Fleener hauled in 52 passes for 608 yards and four scores last season. Both he and tight end Dwayne Allen, now recovered from a hip injury, are expected to be used heavily in 2014.


Colts planning to use both tight ends a lot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) With Dwayne Allen fully recovered from his hip injury, the Colts plan to put him and fellow tight end Coby Fleener on the field a lot, often at the same time, reports ESPN.com. 

“We love using tight ends like everybody else,” coach Chuck Pagano told the website. “But (Fleener) took a big step in Year 2 and played really good football for us and will continue to do that. Getting Dwayne back, we're going to have great options there. You get that inline blocker in Dwayne but don't forget that Dwayne is a heck of a pass receiver, too. So we can create a bunch of mismatches with those guys and get them out in space and get the matchups that you want. It's going to be a great situation.”

Pagano said having Allen and Fleener allows for multiple formations and "gives us a lot of flexibility there.”


More blocking in Coby Fleener's future


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) With Dwayne Allen coming back from a season-ending injury, Coby Fleener was already looking at losing some playing time. Now he might lose some opportunities to catch the ball as Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said from the NFL Owners Meetings that Fleener will need to block more

"We're going to ask him to do some of the heavy lifting," Pagano said of Fleener to the Indianapolis Star, noting that he and Allen will be interchangeable at tight end. 


Coby Fleener: Trent Richardson trade was 'great'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Colts tight end Coby Fleener is overlooking the numbers in his assessment of the trade that brought running back Trent Richardson from Cleveland for a 2014 top draft pick. He called the swap "great" for the Colts and expects Richardson to thrive after a full offseason with the team.

"I think part of it is you're coming into an offense that's probably one of the most complex in the NFL," Fleener told NFL.com. "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."

Richardson's production deteriorated to the point in which he was barely used in the playoffs. He averaged just 2.9 yards per carry after the trade and lost his featured back spot to Donald Brown.


Coby Fleener racks up 74 yards in losing effort


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) Colts tight end Coby Fleener, who caught a touchdown last week, enjoyed another solid performance but was held out of the end zone Saturday, in a 43-22 loss to the Patriots in the AFC Divisional Playoff game.

Five of Fleener's six grabs resulted in 8 yards or more, including a 29-yard reception in the second quarter. He caught six of the 11 passes thrown his way and finished the game with 74 yards (12.3 yards per reception).

Fleener caught 11 passes for 120 yards and one touchdown in two playoff games. He finished the regular season with 52 receptions for 608 yards and four touchdowns in his first full season.

Coby Fleener scores key touchdown in comeback


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2014) Colts tight end Coby Fleener didn't have many long plays, but he played an important role Saturday, in a 45-44 win over the Chiefs in the Wild Card playoff game.

Fleener hauled in five of seven passes thrown his way for 46 yards, with a long reception of 18 yards. He played a big part in the team's comeback bid, however, scoring from 12 yards out for his first career postseason touchdowns. 

The Colts' next game is set for next weekend, against a yet-to-be-determined opponent. They will face either the Broncos or Patriots in the second round of the playoffs. 


Colts pass catchers do little Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Colts pass catchers didn't do much Week 17 against the Jaguars. 

Griff Whalen was the only player to catch a touchdown, scoring on a 7 yard pass. He finished the game with 32 yards. Tight end Coby Fleener had just one reception for 25 yards. Da'Rick Rodgers caught two passes for 20 yards. Stanley Havili also caught two balls, but had 18 yards. Weslye Saunders had 18 yards, but caught one ball. LaVon Brazill caught one bal for 11 yards. Tight end Jack Doyle had one caught for 2 yards.

Tashard Choice also had one catch for 5 yards. He also carried the ball five times for 18 yards. 


Coby Fleener looking at strong matchup Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener is looking at a strong matchup Week 17 against Jacksonville. 

The Jaguars have not been effective at stopping tight ends, allowing them to average 9.60 Fantasy points per game. The team gives up an average of 66 yards to tight ends, which is one of the highest rates in the league. Through 15 games, the team has given up nine touchdowns to tight ends.

Fleener hasn't been much of a threat recently. In the past two games, Fleener has just two receptions for 8 yards. In those two weeks, he played the tough Chiefs, but also the Texans, who have allowed tight ends to score quite a bit this season. Jacksonville presents a similar matchup, so it will be up to Fleener and Andrew Luck to get back on course. Given their recent struggles, Fleener is an iffy play.


Coby Fleener nets 8 yards


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) It was another disappointing performance, at least as a receiver, for Colts tight end Coby Fleener on Sunday. Playing at Kansas City Fleener caught two of three passes sent his way for a grand total of 8 yards. By the second half some of his playing time went to backups Weslye Saunders and Jack Doyle. 

Fleener was catchless last week, so this is technically an incremental improvement. He's gone without a touchdown over his last four games and has totaled 10 catches for 89 yards in those games. He'll try to get back on track vs. Jacksonville next week. 


Coby Fleener could pass as low-end start Week 16


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2013) Colts second-year tight end Coby Fleener was held without a catch for just the second time in his career Week 15. He will aim to bounce back Week 16 at Kansas City.

The matchup against the Chiefs might not seem as bad as you would think. It's true tight ends are averaging just 5.6 Fantasy points per week against Kansas City, which is tied for the second-lowest average. However, tight ends have been playing better against the Chiefs lately.

Tight ends have scored a touchdown in four of the last five games against Kansas City. Tight ends are averaging 49.6 receiving yards and 9.0 Fantasy points per week in that five-game span.

Fleener might not have a lot of upside Fantasy potential Week 16. However, he could pass as a low-end Fantasy start since tight ends have been racking up touchdowns lately against the Chiefs.


Coby Fleener shut out in easy win


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener, who had been among quarterback Andrew Luck's favorite targets in recent weeks, got exactly one ball thrown to him Week 15 against the Texans. He didn't catch it.

It was the first time since Week 3 of 2012 that he went without a catch in a game. In his previous five games, he averaged 8.4 targets, catching 4.8 passes for 55.2 yards.

A couple factors worked against Fleener in this one: the Colts' willingness to run the ball up multiple scores in the second half, attempting just 10 passes over the final two quarters, and the emergence of Griff Whalen out of the slot. Whalen finished with four catches (on five targets) for 45 yards, scoring on a 14-yard throw in the first quarter.

Fleener will look to get back on track Week 16 at Kansas City.


Coby Fleener could have a productive day


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) Though Colts tight end Coby Fleener had just 31 yards on five catches last week at Cincinnati, he tied for the team lead with nine targets, giving him at least eight in four of his last five games. He got eight targets in only one of his first eight games.

That includes Week 9 at the Texans, when he made the most of his five targets by gaining 64 yards on three catches. He's a good bet for better numbers with the Texans coming to town in Week 15.

Though the Texans rank second against the pass, allowing 183.6 yards per game, they've allowed the eighth-most Fantasy points to tight ends this season -- and that's with them facing only three notable ones all season. Not surprisingly, the last two of those three crushed them. The Patriots' Rob Gronkowski had six catches for 127 yards and a touchdown against them in Week 13, and the 49ers' Vernon Davis had three catches for 88 yards and a touchdown against them in Week 5.

Given the number of targets he's gotten in recent weeks, Fleener has become fairly notable himself. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all have him in their top 10 tight ends for this week, with Dave slotting him fourth.


Coby Fleener has 31 receiving yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener caught five passes for 31 yards in Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Bengals. Fleener was targeted a team-high nine times. 

Sunday's game marked the fourth time in Fleener's last five games with eight or more targets. The 31 yards, however, were his fewest since Week 6. 

The Colts play the Texans in Week 15. Fleener caught four passes for 64 yards when the teams first met, in Week 9.


Coby Fleener on a nice recent run


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener came out of the team's bye with some attention thrown on him -- seeing eight or more targets in three of his last five games and going over 50 receiving yards in four of those five. While his touchdown production has acutally dipped (he has one in that five-game span), the targets have been far more consistent. 

Fleener isn't the perfect substitute for Reggie Wayne, but he's taken on a greater deal of responsibility, acting as a de facto No. 2 since Wayne's injury. Fleener's Week 14 opponent, the Bengals, have been up-and-down against opposing tight ends; while they've been relatively stingy with yardage, the Bengals have allowed six touchdowns to tight ends on the season, including two in the last three games. 

There's no reason for Fleener to drop out of the offensive game plan, so the targets should keep coming his way. If he scores is another matter, but as long as he's getting 50 yards, Fleener remains a top 12 option at the position. He can be started in most leagues. 


Coby Fleener does little aside from one drive in defeat of Titans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener made a modest contribution to the victory Sunday over Tennessee. He caught three passes for 50 yards.

Fleener did most of his work in his team's second possession of the game with two of his receptions for 37 yards, including a 21-yarder. He will try to make more of an impact throughout when Indianapolis plays its Week 14 game at Cincinnati.


Coby Fleener looks to stay hot


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener heads into Week 13 against the Titans looking to stay hot. He's been playing well since Reggie Wayne (knee) went down, and we expect him to play well against Tennessee.

Fleener has at least eight Fantasy points in four of his past five games, which coincides with when Wayne got hurt in Week 7 against Denver. Included in that span is a Week 11 matchup at Tennessee when Fleener had a season-high eight catches for 107 yards on 10 targets.

The Titans have allowed six tight ends to score at least eight Fantasy points in a standard league, with Fleener one of two to reach double digits. We expect him to continue playing well as the de facto No. 2 receiver for the Colts behind T.Y. Hilton with Wayne out, and he should be started in all leagues.


Coby Fleener leads the way Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener was the lone bright spot on the team's offense Week 12.

Fleener only caught four balls, but led the team with 55 receiving yards. He also scored the team's only touchdown, catching a 17 yard pass from Andrew Luck in the fourth quarter. Fleener received eight targets, but had a tough time getting open against a tough Cardinals' pass defense. He continues to be a major weapon for Luck with Reggie Wayne out. 

Fleener will take on the Titans Week 13.


Coby Fleener benefiting from absence of Reggie Wayne


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) The loss of Colts premier wide receiver Reggie Wayne has been a gain for Coby Fleener, at least statistically, Fox Sports 910 has reported. The second-year tight end has been targeted 25 times and has 15 catches for 204 yards in three games since Wayne went out for the year with a knee injury.

Fleener peaked with eight receptions for 107 yards - both career-highs - in the Week 11 win at Tennessee.


Coby Fleener ready for a big game Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener could be in for a big game Week 12 against the Cardinals.

Arizona has been the worst team against opposing tight ends this season, allowing 13.80 Fantasy points per game. The team has allowed the most receptions (6.50) and yardage (88.60) to tight ends per game. The team has allowed 10 touchdowns to tight ends in 10 games.

That bodes well for Fleener. Fleener is currently the team's second best receiving threat now that Reggie Wayne is out for the year. In the past three games, Fleener has 15 receptions, putting him behind just T.Y. Hilton. Fleener is also coming off his best game of the season. Though he didn't score a touchdown, Fleener caught eight balls for 107 yards, both season-highs. He could be line to best both of those figures, and potentially even get inot the end zone, against Arizona. At the very least, he's a low-end number one option Week 12.


Coby Fleener comes up big Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener had his finest professional game in Week 11 against the Titans Thursday, as he was Andrew Luck's favorite target in a 30-27 win.

Luck looked Fleener's way a ton, as 10 of his 36 passes were thrown to him. He brought in eight of those passes for 107 yards, both of which are the best totals of his career.

Fleener has already surpassed his totals as a rookie across the board, as he heads to Week 12 against the Cardinals with 37 catches for 439 yards and three touchdowns. 


Coby Fleener has decent Week 11 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/13/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener saw a season high 10 targets in Week 10, but they translated into just four receptions and 33 yards. He's gone over 70 receiving yards just once this season, and his role in the post-Reggie Wayne era has been pretty unclear -- one game with 64 receiving yards and one with 33, but five targets in Week 9 and 10 targets in Week 10. 

Week 11 brings a matchup against the Titans, who have been tough against wide receivers, but far more permissive to opposing tight ends. While the Titans haven't allowed a receiver to catch a touchdown since Week 2, they've allowed three tight ends to score in that same span. The 8.3 Fantasy points allowed per game to tight ends are the 10th most in the league. 

Fleener may be a bit erratic, but with a good matchup and some possible momentum from Week 10 at his back, he's worth a start in most standard leagues. 


Coby Fleener held to 33 yards despite 10 targets


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Colts tight end Coby Fleener hauled in a two-point conversion Week 10 vs. St. Louis, but he didn't do much else offensively during a 38-8 loss. Fleener finished with four catches for 33 yards.

Two passes intended for Fleener were picked off by St. Louis, including one in the red zone. Quarterback Andrew Luck targeted Fleener on a 13-yard touchdown pass with 9:22 left in the fourth quarter, but it was tipped in the back of the end zone and intercepted by Will Witherspoon.

Fleener was targeted a team-high 10 times during the loss. He went without a touchdown for a second straight week. The Colts are back in action Week 10 at Tennessee.


Coby Fleener facing difficult matchup Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2013) Colts second-year tight end Coby Fleener needs just two catches to set a new career high after hauling in 26 passes as a rookie in 2012. There's a good chance Fleener will get at least two catches Week 10 vs. St. Louis.

Fleener has been held to less than two catches just once in eight games this season. Tight ends are averaging close to four catches per game against St. Louis, but haven't had a lot of success against the Rams. They are averaging 38.7 receiving yards and 4.1 Fantasy points per game, which is the second-lowest average.

Tight ends have totaled two touchdowns against St. Louis, but none in the last five games. Over that span, tight ends have averaged 2.2 Fantasy points per week.

Fleener hasn't developed into the elite tight end Fantasy owners were hoping for when he took on a bigger role in the wake of Dwayne Allen's season-ending injury. Now that wide receiver Reggie Wayne is also out for the year, Fleener could see more targets on a weekly basis. Still, he needs to prove he can be a reliable Fantasy option.

Fleener has a tough matchup Week 10, so consider him at best a low-end No. 1 Fantasy tight end.
