ESPN's Mike Triplett believes it is "highly unlikely" Coby Fleener returns to the Saints on his current deal.
Coming off a season in which he caught just 22 passes in 11 games, Fleener is set to count $8 million against the cap with a $6.3 million salary. There is almost no chance he sticks around at those numbers, and while a pay cut is possible, it is more likely the Saints cut him outright. Doing so would save $3.2 million against the cap.

Saints placed TE Coby Fleener (concussion) on injured reserve.

Fleener will be shut down with the fifth concussion of his career. He finishes 2017 with a 22/295/2 line in 11 games (one start), playing just 268 snaps. The Saints also waived CB De'Vante Harris and added TE Garrett Griffin in corresponding moves.

Coby Fleener (concussion) is out for Week 13 against the Panthers.

Fleener suffered the fifth concussion of his career in Sunday's loss to the Rams. He's week-to-week. Josh Hill and Michael Hoomanawanui will fill in at tight end, though neither will be appealing fantasy options.

Coby Fleener said Sunday's concussion suffered against the Rams is the fifth of his career.

Fleener didn't say whether he was including college concussions, but it doesn't matter. We'd be surprised if he played in Week 13 against Carolina. If Fleener indeed misses, Josh Hill and Michael Hoomanawanui will share tight end duty.

Coby Fleener suffered a concussion in the Saints' Week 12 loss to the Rams.

Flattened by a disgusting, helmet-to-helmet hit from Rams DB Blake Countess in the fourth quarter, Fleener was embarrassingly allowed to remain in the game for a few plays. It was only then that he was evaluated for and diagnosed with the concussion. It was yet another failure of what in theory is a straightforward head injury policy. It's the second diagnosed concussion of Fleener's career. The first was in 2013. He's questionable for Week 13.

Coby Fleener caught 5-of-5 targets for 91 yards in New Orleans' Week 11 win over the Redskins.

Fleener entered today with 88 yards since the calendar flipped to October. He doesn't offer legit TE2 value.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 06:56:00 PM

Coby Fleener played 17-of-77 snaps (22 percent) Week 10 against the Bills.

He was targeted once, but he dropped the pass. With the Saints leaning heavily on the run, Fleener has not played more than 35 percent of the offensive snaps since Week 4 nor caught more than two passes since Week 2. He is not a fantasy option.
Mon, Nov 13, 2017 10:23:00 AM

Coby Fleener caught each of his two targets for 46 yards in Sunday's Week 9 win over the Buccaneers.

Fleener had a 33-yard reception in which Drew Brees extended the play, finding Fleener all alone for the catch and run. The yardage was the most Fleener has had in a game since Week 1 and is still not an option for fantasy leagues moving forward.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 05:09:00 PM

Coby Fleener was held to one catch in Week 8.

It's another bad game from Fleener, who has been phased out of the offense. Fleener will take a 14/150/2 line into Week 9.
Sun, Oct 29, 2017 05:07:00 PM

Coby Fleener caught 2-of-3 targets for 22 yards in the Saints' Week 7 win over the Packers.

Fleener has 151 yards all season, and 64 since Week 2. He's not a fantasy option.
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 05:49:00 PM

Coby Fleener failed to corral his only target Week 6 against the Lions.

He has not topped 35 yards since Week 1, and he has six catches total over that span. Fleener is not a realistic fantasy option right now.
Sun, Oct 15, 2017 05:52:00 PM

Coby Fleener hauled in 2-of-4 targets for 21 yards in the Saints' Week 4 win over the Dolphins in London.

With Willie Snead still sidelined and Josh Hill out most of the game because of a concussion, things were set up for a good day from Fleener, but he saw just four targets. He has six catches combined the last three games. He will not be a fantasy option after the Week 5 bye.
Sun, Oct 1, 2017 01:21:00 PM

Coby Fleener caught one pass for 21 yards in the Saints' Week 3 win over the Panthers.

The only other time Fleener was heard from was a holding penalty. It was a disappointing game for Fleener in a good matchup. With Willie Snead returning for Week 4, it will be hard to trust Fleener as a spot starter at tight end.
Sun, Sep 24, 2017 05:26:00 PM

Coby Fleener caught 3-of-4 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

Fleener's first catch did not come until the second half, and he was headed for a disappointing fantasy day entering the fourth quarter. He was able to score a short touchdown in garbage time to salvage his day, however, and now has two in as many weeks. In a much better matchup next week, Fleener will be a back-end TE1 with Willie Snead still suspended.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 06:08:00 PM

Coby Fleener caught 5-of-6 targets for 54 yards and one touchdown in the Saints' Week 1 loss to the Vikings.

In all seriousness, Fleener might have been the best offensive player on the field for the Saints. He made a nice catch down the seam for his long gain of 24 yards to get the offense in the red zone then caught a pass to convert a third-and-eight play on the same drive. Fleener finished the night off securing the Saints' lone touchdown. He figures to be a big winner in the absence of Willie Snead, who is suspended for two more games. Fleener will have some streaming appeal next week against the Patriots in what should be an offensive showdown.
