Coby Fleener caught 4-of-7 targets for 36 yards Week 16 against the Cowboys.
Fleener made a nice 17-yard sideline grab early in the game but was limited by the Colts' floundering offense. The return of Dwayne Allen has not seriously eaten into Fleener's targets. He is a good bet for 7-10 targets Week 17 against the Titans. Dec 21 - 8:06 PM

Coby Fleener caught two passes for 32 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Texans.

Fleener saw five targets on the day, dropping two and not sitting in his route on another. That failure to recognize the coverage resulted in an Andrew Luck pick-6. Fleener's inefficiency is hard to stomach now that Dwayne Allen (2-16-1 on four targets) is back health. There's not enough volume.
Dec 14 - 4:42 PM

Coby Fleener secured 5-of-10 targets for 56 yards in the Colts' Week 14 win over the Browns.

Fleener remained heavily involved despite the return of Dwayne Allen, though we suspect his usage will dwindle gradually as Allen improves off his ankle injury. Fleener will be a borderline TE1 when the Colts face the Texans in Week 15.
Dec 7 - 5:37 PM

Coby Fleener caught 4-of-7 targets for 127 yards and two touchdowns Week 13 against the Redskins.

We ran the entire range of emotions with Fleener on Sunday. He found himself wide open for a 30-yard touchdown in the first quarter and had a rampaging 73-yard score in the third. He also dropped what would have been a crawl-in touchdown and again struggled to win contested catches. Fleener is getting the targets to be a weekly TE1 while Dwayne Allen is out, but his inconsistent hands and apparent fear of contact will make him a risky play week to week.
Nov 30 - 5:06 PM

Coby Fleener caught two passes for 28 yards in the Colts' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.

Fleener was targeted four times and could have easily had a touchdown had he not alligator-armed a ball in the end zone when he heard Jaguars' big-hitting SS Jonathan Cyprien's footsteps over the middle. Afraid of contact, Fleener is going to have these sorts of games. With Dwayne Allen (ankle) out, Fleener was also called on to block more. Fleener will be on the TE1 map again next week against the Redskins if Allen has to miss another game.
Nov 23 - 5:02 PM

Coby Fleener caught seven passes for 144 yards in Sunday night's Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

The Patriots gameplanned around T.Y. Hilton, leaving Andrew Luck to check down to Fleener and Reggie Wayne. Fleener was an every-down tight end after Dwayne Allen went down with an ankle injury in the second quarter. He had already started to come on last week as one of Andrew Luck's favorite targets. With a Week 12 matchup against Jacksonville, Fleener would be a plug-and-play TE1 if Allen misses time.
Nov 17 - 1:44 AM

Coby Fleener caught four passes for 77 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 9 win over the Giants.

Fleener drew a team-high 11 targets. He entered the game with just 31 targets across the first eight games, so obviously we don't advise chasing this. While Fleener caught a 32-yard touchdown after making a juggling catch on the previous play, we still saw much of the Fleener we've come to know. He had a ball bounce off his head in the end zone and had another one whizz by him when he failed to adjust to it in the air. He's not a good football player.
Nov 4 - 12:56 AM

Coby Fleener caught 1-of-4 targets for four yards in Indy's Week 8 loss to the Steelers.

The one-catch effort was Fleener's third of the season. With half the year now in the books, Fleener is on pace for a middling 36/436/6. He's an emergency fill-in for teams ravaged by byes.
Oct 26 - 9:26 PM

Coby Fleener caught four passes for 64 yards in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bengals.

Fleener ran wide open all day, and could have had an even bigger box score if he had been looking for the ball instead of a running a clear-out route with his head down in the second half. Andrew Luck's BFF did have five targets in this one, his most since Week 3. But his week-to-week role is minor in this talented Colts offense that has so many mouths to feed. Fleener remains a weak TE2 heading into Week 8 against the Steelers.
Oct 19 - 4:38 PM

Coby Fleener caught 2-of-4 targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 6 win over the Texans.

True to form, one of Fleener's missed connections was a preposterous drop where he appeared to be flinging the ball away from his body. Inexplicably, the score was his third of the season. Fleener is going to maintain a role in the Colts' offense, but not one big enough to keep him on the radar in 12-14 team re-draft leagues.
Oct 10 - 12:45 AM

Coby Fleener caught one pass for 30 yards in the Colts' Week 5 win.

Fleener was targeted on two of Andrew Luck's 49 passes. He's not a big part of the offense and is now well behind touchdown-scorer Dwayne Allen.
Oct 5 - 6:20 PM

Coby Fleener caught two passes for 26 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 4 win over the Titans.

Fleener was targeted three times on the day. With Dwayne Allen starting to emerge some, Fleener is thankfully not seeing as many targets this season. Fleener is on pace to catch 36 balls for 436 yards and eight touchdowns. He's unlikely to score that many times. Fleener is a bottom-barrel TE2 option.
Sep 28 - 5:27 PM

Coby Fleener caught 4-of-7 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

He also dropped another would-be TD pass. Through three games, Fleener has turned in stat lines of 3-21, 1-13, and 4-49-1. He's very difficult to trust as more than a TE2 in fantasy. The Colts will host Tennessee in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 5:02 PM

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.
