Dwayne Allen secured his lone target for seven yards in the Colts' Week 11 win over the Falcons.
Reports had new OC Rob Chudzinski planning to involve Allen more after Pep Hamilton's firing, but it hasn't happened. A TD-dependent commodity all last year, Allen's low-volume usage has caught up to him this season. He isn't worth owning in 16-team fantasy leagues. Nov 22 - 5:43 PM

New Colts OC Rob Chudzinski "is expected to get tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener more involved."

Allen -- in particular -- was severely underutilized in the first half of the season. Unfortunately, we can't project a ton of change in the fantasy outlooks for Allen or Fleener in a committee-type scenario and in a fairly dysfunctional passing attack. Neither is more than a TE2 against the Broncos.
Nov 6 - 1:49 PM

Dwayne Allen caught 1-of-3 targets for four yards in the Colts' Week 8 loss to the Panthers on Monday night.

Allen looked to draw a defensive pass interference call in the corner of the end zone when he was blatantly grabbed and nearly tackled on the play, but the refs didn't whistle it. Allen remains a small part of the pass-game offense and isn't anywhere near redraft fantasy relevance.
Nov 3 - 1:22 AM

The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder believes contract-year TE Dwayne Allen is "as good as gone" as a free agent in the offseason.

"I can't see a plausible scenario where Dwayne Allen re-signs," Holder added. Allen (6'3/265) has plenty of physical tools as a strong in-line blocker with a reliable set of hands in the red zone. But he ran slow at the Combine in 2012 and has battled some injuries since coming into the league. Allen would probably prefer more opportunities in the pass game. He's been getting very minimal targets since the start of last season. Coby Fleener is also in a contract year.
Nov 2 - 9:20 PM

Dwayne Allen caught his lone target for 10 yards in Indy's Week 7 loss to the Saints.

Allen has five catches for 54 scoreless yards in three games since returning from his ankle injury. He's off the TE2 radar.
Oct 25 - 6:28 PM

Dwayne Allen had three catches for 23 yards in Week 6 against the Patriots.

Allen had more yards than Coby Fleener, but has played a limited pass-game role when healthy this season. Allen isn’t more than a touchdown-dependent TE2 for Week 7.
Oct 19 - 1:18 AM

Dwayne Allen caught his lone target for 21 yards in Indianapolis' Week 5 win over the Texans.

Allen played heavy snaps, but primarily as a blocker. His main fantasy impact was denting Coby Fleener's. Oft injured and catching fewer passes than ever, Allen is tumbling from the TE2 ranks.
Oct 9 - 12:31 AM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) is probable for Thursday night's Week 5 game against the Texans.

Allen missed the past two games with a sprained ankle. His return isn't good news for Coby Fleener's box-score production, making both players TE2 options.
Oct 7 - 2:25 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 5.

Barring a setback, it puts him on track to return for Thursday's game against the Texans after missing Weeks 3 and 4. Allen might be on a snap count, but it still throws a wrench into Coby Fleener's TE1 status. Fleener would be a shaky option if Allen plays. Allen himself won't be a viable TE2.
Oct 6 - 5:03 PM

Colts TE Dwayne Allen's (ankle) status remains "a question" entering Week 5 against the Texans.

Allen has been inactive the past two weeks, allowing Coby Fleener to become a near-every-down tight end in his absence. Fleener finished Week 4 as the No. 2 overall tight end in fantasy, behind only Martellus Bennett. Fleener is always a TE1 option whenever Allen misses, even with Matt Hasselbeck under center. Allen's injury status will be updated again on Tuesday.
Oct 5 - 4:53 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) is inactive for Week 4 against the Jaguars.

Allen practiced on a limited basis, but still isn't fully over his ankle injury. He'll miss his second straight game. Coby Fleener is a low-end TE1 streamer with Allen sidelined. The rest of the Colts inactives are QB Andrew Luck, CB Greg Toler, OL Todd Herremans, RB Tyler Varga, OL Denzelle Good, and DL T.Y. McGill.
Oct 4 - 11:45 AM

Dwayne Allen (questionable, ankle) expects to play Sunday.

Allen got in two limited practices this week. He’s not fully over his ankle injury, but looks on track to play as a game-time decision. Coby Fleener will be a low-end streamer if Allen sits.
Oct 3 - 3:40 PM

Dwayne Allen (questionable, ankle) is a game-time decision for Week 4.

Allen told reporters he's "not quite there" despite practicing all week. Even if active, Allen isn't fully over his ankle issue and could play limited snaps. Coby Fleener won't be a streaming option if Allen returns.
Oct 2 - 4:53 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) practiced again on Friday.

Allen missed last Sunday's game with an ankle issue, but his participation at practice suggests it might have been just a one-week absence. He's only logged three catches for 17 yards this year and will be a shaky fantasy play if the Colts are forced to use Matt Hasselbeck in place of Andrew Luck (shoulder) this week.
Oct 2 - 11:52 AM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) returned to Colts practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It suggests Allen could return against the Jaguars, but that's far from a given. What the fourth-year tight end is able to do on Friday will be key.
