Dwayne Allen caught three passes for 38 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 4 win over the Titans.
Allen caught all three of his targets and broke open for a 17-yard gain on Andrew Luck's first pass of the game. He was later left wide open in the end zone for a seven-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Allen isn't seeing many targets, but he now has three touchdowns through three games and is on pace for a 44-580-12 receiving line. He's more of a candidate for 6-8 scores as a mid-range TE2. Allen can do much more, but the Colts love him as a blocker. Sep 28 - 5:15 PM

Dwayne Allen secured 4-of-6 targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

Allen's stat lines through three games are 4-64-1, 0-0, and 4-43-1. He's basically the definition of a low-end TE1 in fantasy. The Colts take on the Titans next. Look for Allen to remain in the 4-6 target range against Tennessee.
Sep 21 - 5:10 PM

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells expects TE Dwayne Allen's targets and receptions will "increase as the season goes on."

Allen has only seen six passes thrown his way through the first two weeks of the season, while fellow tight end Coby Fleener has nine targets already. Allen has been more effective with his targets, though, and is simply a better player than Fleener. His role in the offense should grow, but Allen's upside is limited as long as Reggie Wayne and T.Y. Hilton continue to soak up targets.

Dwayne Allen didn't catch a pass in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Eagles.

Allen saw just one target on the night, but he blocked his butt off in the run game. He lost out to third-string TE Jack Doyle on a two-yard touchdown in the second quarter. OC Pep Hamilton and the coaches simply don't realize Allen's skill level as an all-around tight end. He'll get the Jaguars in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 12:43 AM

Dwayne Allen caught 4-of-5 targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 1 loss to the Broncos.

Allen started over Coby Fleener, but both got heavy snaps in two-tight end formations. Fleener finished with more targets (8), but was less effective and struggled with drops. Allen took an out route 41 yards down the sideline for his touchdown. He's on the TE2 radar and is worth a look on waivers. Allen is the Colts' top red-zone threat and has potential to be the No. 3 option in the pass game, ahead of Hakeem Nicks.
Sep 8 - 1:35 AM

Dwayne Allen secured 3-of-3 targets for 15 yards in the Colts' third preseason game Saturday night versus New Orleans.

They were Allen's first receptions of August after he went catch-less in the Colts' second exhibition game, and didn't play in the first. Allen is a low-ceiling TE2 who could help Indianapolis' red-zone offense, but doesn't appear to be a consistently featured part of their passing game.

Dwayne Allen reiterated the Colts' plans to feature a two-tight end set this season.

"We're able to do a lot of things that we did last year but with bigger personnel, meaning me and Coby [Fleener] are the pair that are on the field and we don't leave the field no matter the situation," Allen said. We've long been intrigued by Allen's all-around talent, and now he's set to be a core piece of the offense. There's TE2 upside here. Allen could end up with a lot of touchdowns.
Aug 3 - 10:58 AM

Colts tight end coach Alfredo Roberts said getting Dwayne Allen (hip surgery) back "is like getting a brand new player."

Allen was pegged for a big role in OC Pep Hamilton's offense last year, but he injured his hip only 32 snaps into the season and was placed on injured reserve. Now healthy, Allen should once again be a big part of the Colts' plans. He is a solid TE2 with upside.
Jul 10 - 10:58 AM

Dwayne Allen (hip surgery) is participating in this week's OTAs.

It's been more than seven months since Allen's season-ending surgery. He said he had to "teach myself how to run again," but is now getting his timing back and feeling better. By the time camp comes around, Allen should truly be 100 percent. He'll be a solid TE2 with upside for more if special assistant Rob Chudzinski is able to exert influence over offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.
May 22 - 7:57 AM

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip surgery) said he's been cleared to participate in everything.

Allen is running around at this week's offseason workouts, catching some passes with no restrictions. It confirms Allen's proclamations from a month ago that his hip is back to "110 percent." Allen has the skill set to be an all-around beast and a major asset in the passing game -- especially if tight end-friendly special assistant Rob Chudzinski gains influence over OC Pep Hamilton.
Apr 24 - 8:39 AM

GM Ryan Grigson referred to TE Dwayne Allen as "a beast."

The Colts are understandably high on Allen, who says he is "110 percent" as he comes off hip surgery. "How he plays in the red zone, how he plays in traffic, how he blocks at the point of attack, the tempo he plays at and the ferocity he plays at, he's a guy you want on your team," Grigson said. With Rob Chudzinski now helping Pep Hamilton as a special assistant, Allen's stock is on the rise sharply. No one gets more out of tight ends than Chud.

Dwayne Allen (hip) said he's back to 100 percent.

"I’m great. I’m actually to 100 percent," Allen said. Allen is doing pilates three days a week, among other rehab activities, and should get some work in at OTAs next month. The third-year tight end underwent hip surgery in early October and was slapped with a six-month recovery timetable. Allen should return as a dominating in-line blocker with plus hands who plays most snaps, forcing Coby Fleener into the "move" role. Allen is a high-end TE2 with upside.
Mar 19 - 3:49 PM

Colts TE Dwayne Allen said his hip surgery ended up being more invasive than originally thought.

Allen was originally slapped with a 3-4 month timetable following his early-October procedure, but he said he's now looking at six months of rehab. He's hoping to get cleared in time for OTAs, but training camp might be more realistic. The Colts will ideally return with a two-tight end set as their base, featuring the beastly Allen in-line and Coby Fleener in the "move" spot. Allen's health is well worth tracking.
Jan 13 - 10:39 AM

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip surgery) will need 3-4 months of recovery time.

He'll be fully recovered for training camp next season. One of the best in-line tight ends in the league, Allen will be returning to a prominent role in 2014.

Colts placed TE Dwayne Allen on injured reserve with a hip injury, ending his season.

Allen will soon undergo surgery. Hip injuries can be tricky, but there's been no indication Allen won't be 100 percent for next summer's camp. One of the league's best young tight ends, Allen should be returning to a big role in 2014, and remains a "hold" in Dynasty leagues.
