Coby Fleener caught just one pass for 13 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.
Fleener saw just the one target a week after dropping a pass and botching a red-zone target. He's not worth owning in any fantasy leagues. Sep 16 - 12:34 AM

Coby Fleener had three catches for 21 yards in Sunday night's loss to Denver.

Fleener was targeted more than Dwayne Allen, but saw fewer snaps. He couldn't come down with his lone red-zone target and dropped a pass that led to an interception in the fourth quarter. With Allen healthy, Fleener can continue to be left on the waiver-wire in fantasy leagues.
Sep 8 - 1:53 AM

Coby Fleener caught 2-of-4 targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' third preseason game Saturday night.

This was Fleener's first production of August. Mixing in with the first-team offense behind Dwayne Allen, Fleener was left uncovered by New Orleans' defense on a first-quarter seam route. Andrew Luck hit him over the top for a 21-yard score. Another one of Luck's targets to Fleener was intercepted, although the pick was on Luck for an underthrow. Fleener's regular season stats are likely to dip off last year's production with Allen back healthy.

The Colts are expected to dramatically increase their usage of two-tight end sets this season.

Chuck Pagano and Pep Hamilton are showing no signs that they want to spread out the offense and saddle up Andrew Luck. Instead, they're going to get both Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener on the field in "12" looks and stubbornly stick with a ball-control philosophy. We'd rather take a shot on Allen than Fleener as he's a far better football player and is set to play the Rob Gronkowski role.

Coby Fleener caught six passes for 74 yards in Indianapolis' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

The inefficient second-year pro hauled in 6-of-11 targets. On the surface, Fleener's 52/608/4 sophomore line appears to be a step in the right direction. Dig deeper, however, and you find a player who still does almost none of the little things right. A soft blocker, Fleener has been prone to drops. He has a remarkable knack for not knowing where the chains are. His numbers were greatly inflated by the absence of Dwayne Allen (hip). With Allen certain to return atop the depth chart next season, Fleener can't be considered more than a TE2.
Jan 12 - 12:09 AM

Coby Fleener caught five passes for 46 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Wild Card win over the Chiefs.

Fleener also committed his usual drop, and failed to get beyond the sticks on a crucial second-quarter fourth down. Fleener is physically gifted, but remains a work-in-progress at the finer points of football. He's going to open 2014 behind Dwayne Allen on the depth chart.
Jan 4 - 8:57 PM

Coby Fleener caught a 25-yard pass in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

Fleener's final 2013 regular season line will go down as 52-608-4 in a second NFL campaign where the athletic Stanford grad flirted with fantasy TE1 value, but never demonstrated enough consistency to be counted on as a weekly starter. Fleener will continue to be a critical cog in the Colts' passing attack during the forthcoming postseason.

Coby Fleener caught two passes for eight yards in Week 16 at Kansas City.

Fleener was targeted three times. The other pass hit him in the hands. Fleener also fumbled one of his catches, but it went out of bounds. He's simply not a playmaker and is just a TE2. Fleener gets Jacksonville next week.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 06:44:00 PM

Coby Fleener was held without a catch on one target in Indianapolis' Week 15 win over the Texans.

Fleener was a blocker as the Colts went run heavy to protect an early lead and drain the clock against an inept Texans team. The zero-catch afternoon was Fleener's first of the season, and comes after he averaged 8.4 targets over his past five games. The stinging doughnut comes one week ahead of a matchup with the Chiefs, who have erased enemy tight ends all season. Fleener can't be trusted for Week 16.

Coby Fleener caught five passes for 31 yards in Week 14 against the Bengals.

Fleener tied Da'Rick Rogers for the team lead with nine targets. Fleener has failed to top 55 yards receiving in any of the past three games but will continue to be a low-end TE1 next week against the Texans. He caught three passes for 64 yards in Week 9 versus Houston. The Texans are going through the motions on defense.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 07:01:00 PM

Coby Fleener was held to three catches for 50 yards in the Colts' Week 13 win over the Titans.

It was a slow day for the entire Indy passing attack, which didn't have a single pass catcher exceed Fleener's 50 yards. T.Y. Hilton led the team with five catches, managing 46 yards. Fleener will continue to be a low-end TE1 option when the Colts take on Cincinnati's defense in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 04:50:00 PM

Coby Fleener caught four passes for 55 yards and one touchdown in Week 12 against the Cardinals.

Coming off a 107-yard performance last week, Fleener had a juicy matchup with the Cardinals' league-worst defense when it comes to containing tight ends. He was targeted eight times on the day but didn't have much to show for them until he secured a 17-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter to pull the Colts within 23 points of Arizona. It was the definition of a garbage-time score. Fleener was wide open behind Yeremiah Bell on the play. Fleener and the Colts get the Titans, whom he posted that 107-yard performance against last week, in Week 13. Fleener will be on the back end of the TE1 radar the remainder of the year.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 07:56:00 PM

Coby Fleener caught eight passes for 107 yards in the Colts' Week 11 win over the Titans.

Both totals were new career highs for the inconsistent second-year pro, who hadn't even cleared 80 yards since Week 1 last season. Fleener played a complete game, committing no drops and even making a few contested catches. It was the kind of effort he needs to display much more often to be taken seriously as an every-week TE1. As it is, it's certainly a game the Colts are going to give Fleener a chance to build on, as Andrew Luck has precious few options in the passing game. Fleener is probably already close to 100 percent owned, but he should be scooped up in any league where he's still on the wire.

Coby Fleener caught four passes for 33 yards in Indianapolis' Week 10 loss to the Rams.

Another week, another disappointing effort for Fleener, who was the intended target on two of Andrew Luck's three interceptions. Fleener didn't deserve the blame for either pick, but it underscores the fact that when Indy throws to him, bad things happen far too often. Fleener has just seven catches for 97 yards in two games since Reggie Wayne was lost for the season. The Colts desperately need him to step up, but there's been no sign that he will. Fleener is a borderline TE1.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 05:28:00 PM

Coby Fleener caught three passes for 64 yards in Sunday night's Week 9 win over the Texans.

Fleener got the majority of his yardage on a 44-yard catch in the first quarter and was a non-factor in the second half. With Reggie Wayne out for the season, he should continue to be more involved in the passing game. Fleener will be just a TE2 in Week 9 against the Rams.
