by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Report: Conflicting reports on severity of TE Allen's ankle injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

However, two sources told NFL.com that Allen suffered a low-ankle sprain Week 11. While Allen might miss time, the injury is not considered severe, according to the NFL.com report.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw and tight end Dwayne Allen were both seen in protective boots after Sunday's 42-20 loss to the Patriots.

The Colts didn't provide an update on either player, but the sense is that Bradshaw, who was also on crutches Sunday night, will miss extended time. Both players will go through tests Monday to determine the severity of their injuries. The Colts are set to face the Jaguars in Week 12.

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.


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' Dwayne Allen held under 50 receiving yards Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Colts tight end Dwayne Allen was held under 50 receiving yards in a Week 6 victory over the Texans on Thursday.

Allen caught a 15-yard pass on the opening drive and an 18-yard pass on the third drive of the night. He only had one catch the rest of the way but still managed to finish as the team's second-leading receiver. He caught three of the seven passes thrown his way for 49 yards in 33-28 victory. He has 253 receiving yards and four touchdowns through six games.

The Colts will host the Bengals in Week 7.


Dwayne Allen likely a start for someone


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/8/2014) The Colts' Dwayne Allen continued to distinguish himself from fellow tight end Coby Fleener in Week 5, scoring another touchdown -- his fourth in five games -- on more than twice as many targets.

I'm at the point where I don't worry so much about those two cutting into each other's production. There aren't enough Fantasy-relevant tight ends to go around in a 12-team league if you let that scare you away. Allen would be better if Fleener wasn't in the picture, sure, but he gets so many looks at the goal line that he can make do with fewer targets overall. He'll never be a stud in Fantasy, but again, he's good enough to start in a 12-team league.

His Week 6 opponent, the Texans, have allowed only one touchdown to tight ends this season, but the biggest ones they've faced -- the Redskins' Niles Paul, the Giants' Larry Donnell and the Cowboys' Jason Witten -- all put up their usual yardage against them. I'm guessing Andrew Luck won't be thinking about how many tight ends have scored against the Texans when the Colts are inside the 10-yard line.


Colts' Dwayne Allen scores four TD of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Colts tight end Dwayne Allen came down with his fourth touchdown of the season Sunday afternoon at home against the Ravens in Week 5.

Allen caught a 6-yard pass from Andrew Luck in the end zone for a touchdown in the third quarter. He was targeted five times and finished with four catches for 59 yards and a score, averaging 14.8 yards per grab in his team's 20-13 victory.

Allen has caught a touchdown in each of his first four games played. He has 15 catches for 205 yards and four touchdowns this season.


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.


Taking a look at the tight end waiver wire


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) With key players like Vernon Davis (back), Niles Paul (concussion), Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Tyler Eifert (elbow) dealing with injuries, finding help on the waiver wire might be the key to success at the tight end position. Here are some of Jamey Eisenberg's thoughts on the best pickups for this week.

Larry Donnell of the Giants and Travis Kelce are likely to be the most-added tight ends when waivers run Wednesday morning, and Jamey admits to being "torn" on which he prefers. Dwayne Allen of the Colts, Garrett Graham of the Texans and Reed round out the top-five, while Austin Sefarian-Jenkins, Clay Harbor and Jace Amaro are sleeper adds for deep leagues.

Charles Clay of the Dolphins and Ladarius Green of the Chargers are considered drop-worthy, if you need a roster spot. 


Dwayne Allen ties career high in touchdowns


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Colts tight end Dwayne Allen scored for the third time in four games during a 41-17 win Week 4 vs. Tennessee. Allen finished with three catches for 38 yards Sunday.

Allen gave Indianapolis a 14-0 lead when he hauled in a 7-yard touchdown with 52 seconds left in the first quarter. He has tied a career high with three receiving touchdowns. 

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. 


Colts backup pass catchers manage to play a role Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Colts backups managed to play a role Week 3 against the Jaguars.

Donte Moncrief played the biggest role, gaining 55 yards on four catches. Tight end Dwayne Allen also made an impact, picking up 43 yards during the contest. Jack Doyle also caught three passes for 10 yards. 

They'll take on the Titans Week 4. 


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.


Dwayne Allen tiptoes for touchdown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Colts tight end Dwayne Allen made a highlight-reel play in his first game back since hip surgery. Hauling in a short pass on the sideline, Allen used his strength and balance to stay inbounds for a 41-yard touchdown.

The play pulled Indy within 31-17 of Denver midway through the fourth quarter. Allen, who caught four of five targets for 64 yards, plays the Eagles in Week 2.
