Coby Fleener caught 3-of-5 targets for 45 yards in the Colts' Week 11 win over the Falcons.
Fleener's highlight was a Hail Mary interception of Matt Ryan on the final play of the game. Neither Fleener nor Dwayne Allen has offered much in the box scores this year when both players have been healthy. Both are healthy now. Fleener would be a weak TE1 streamer in Week 12 against the Buccaneers. Nov 22 - 5:41 PM

Coby Fleener caught 4-of-6 targets for 22 yards Week 9 against the Broncos.

Most of Fleener's targets were of the check-down variety, and he did not gain more than nine yards on any catch. Fleener has not gone over 50 yards receiving since Week 4, and he is not consistent enough to warrant TE1 consideration as long as Dwayne Allen is healthy.
Nov 8 - 7:57 PM

Coby Fleener caught 7-of-11 targets for 43 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 8 loss to the Panthers on Monday night.

His 11 targets were a team-high on a night T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief had to do battle with Josh Norman and Charles Tillman. Fleener caught an eight-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, but also couldn't hang onto a potential 17-yard score on 3rd-and-4 as he was hit in the end zone earlier in the game. After eight games, Fleener is on pace to catch 72 passes for 602 yards and six scores. He's one of the better TE2 options, but isn't consistent enough to bring back TE1 value as long as he and Dwayne Allen are both healthy. The Broncos are next for the Colts.
Nov 3 - 1:12 AM

Coby Fleener caught 3-of-5 targets for 47 yards in Indianapolis' Week 7 loss to the Saints.

Fleener seems to have settled in the 2-4 weekly catch range. He has the upside for much more, but it vanishes when Dwayne Allen is healthy. Fleener isn't worth a roster spot in 12-team leagues.
Oct 25 - 6:29 PM

Coby Fleener caught 3-of-6 targets for 20 yards in Week 6 against the Patriots.

Fleener wasn’t a factor outside of a few check downs. He’s taken a backseat to Dwayne Allen the last two weeks, managing five catches on nine targets. Fleener can be dropped in 12-team leagues.
Oct 19 - 1:20 AM

Coby Fleener caught 2-of-3 targets for nine yards in Indy's Week 5 win over the Texans.

A returning Dwayne Allen drew only one target, but Fleener and Allen found themselves losing snaps to Jack Doyle, who somehow drew two looks. Time and again, Fleener has been a viable TE1 in Allen's absence, but time and again, that value has disappeared once Allen returned. Fleener is an end-of-bench stash in 12-14 team leagues.
Oct 9 - 12:28 AM

Coby Fleener caught 9-of-12 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Jaguars.

With Dwayne Allen sidelined, Fleener played an every-down role for the second straight week. He was Matt Hasselbeck's primary check down and scored the Colts' only touchdown in the second quarter. Fleener is on pace for a 56/556/4 line and will have a limited role when Allen returns.
Oct 4 - 6:26 PM

Coby Fleener caught 4-of-6 targets for 51 yards Week 3 against the Titans.

Even without Dwayne Allen (ankle) active, Fleener lost some of the tight end work to Jack Doyle, who caught three passes for 32 yards. The good news is Fleener did not commit any egregious drops and came up with two big catches on the Colts' first touchdown drive of the fourth quarter. As long as Allen is out, Fleener will be on the TE1 streaming radar.
Sep 27 - 5:43 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano and QB Andrew Luck both said the team needed to get their tight ends more involved.

"To be successful, they definitely have to be involved," Luck said. "We have to do a better job," Pagano added. Through two games, Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener have combined for six catches for 22 yards and a touchdown. Neither player was targeted in Monday night's loss to the Jets. With Allen likely to miss Week 3 with an ankle injury, an emphasis on getting the tight ends involved could result in a big day for Fleener, who averaged 88 yards a game without Allen in the lineup last season. Fleener is an interesting DFS dart throw.
Sep 24 - 10:18 AM

Coby Fleener wasn't targeted in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Jets on Monday night.

After managing just one catch for five yards in the season opener, Fleener has proven himself as a fantasy nonentity. Leave him on the waiver wire as a TE3.
Sep 22 - 12:16 AM

Coby Fleener was held to one catch for five yards in Indy's Week 1 loss to the Bills.

Fleener also caught a two-point conversion, but his lone official target came deep into the fourth quarter. With T.Y. Hilton (knee) likely to miss Week 2, Fleener should have a bigger role against the Jets, but still won't be more than a low-end TE2.
Sep 13 - 6:42 PM

The Colts are expected to "spread the field" with more "three- and four-receiver formations" this season.

It's the natural evolution for Indianapolis after the team invested big money in Andre Johnson and a first-round pick in Phillip Dorsett, with T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief already on the roster. The biggest loser figures to be No. 2 tight end Coby Fleener, whose playing time seems certain to drop. Dwayne Allen's role should be secure because he is so valuable as a blocker, an especially necessary attribute on a team with a sub-par offensive line.
Jul 9 - 3:44 PM

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells lists Coby Fleener as a projected 2015 starter.

It's notable because Wells does not project Donte Moncrief as a starter. The Colts have the personnel to be quite diverse on offense following the addition of Andre Johnson, fielding both "12" and "11" packages depending on the game. In order for Moncrief to realize his breakout potential, he'll need to convince Indy's coaching staff that he has more value than Fleener, and therefore utilize more "11" (three WRs) than "12" (two TEs) sets.
Apr 8 - 4:23 PM

Coby Fleener caught three passes for 30 yards in Sunday's AFC Championship Game loss at New England.

Matched up with oversized and physical Brandon Browner, Fleener didn't have much of a chance. Of course, the volume wasn't there either (four targets), just as it hasn't been all year when Dwayne Allen (six targets) was healthy. A large chunk of Fleener's 51-774-8 line from the regular season came when Allen was nursing an ankle injury. Still, Fleener is a pass-catching specialist that has a spot in Andrew Luck's heart and will be entering a contract year in 2015. He'll be a mid-range TE2 at worst in 2015 fantasy drafts.
Jan 18 - 10:50 PM

Coby Fleener secured 3-of-6 targets for 49 yards in the Colts' Divisional Round win over Denver.

Fleener's big play was a 32-yard reception deep down the middle, secured in traffic on a pretty touch pass by Andrew Luck. Expect Fleener to be a bigger factor when the Colts head to Foxboro for the AFC Championship Game.
