Dwayne Allen pulled in five-of-six targets for 49 yards Thursday in the Colts' Week 12 loss to the Steelers.
Allen entered Thursday with two catches for 24 yards over his last three games. By halftime, he had already accumulated three receptions for 31 yards. He finished second on the team in targets behind only Donte Moncrief. It was a respectable effort, but not something fantasy owners should expect on a weekly basis. Allen could have some streaming appeal next week against the Jets, particularly if T.Y. Hilton (back) sits out. Nov 25 - 1:04 AM

Dwayne Allen was held without a catch in Week 12.

He had two targets. The Colts looked to Allen on an early red-zone play, but he fell out of the gameplan after a bad first-half drop. Both him and Jack Doyle (one catch) weren't involved behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Allen hasn't looked fully healthy since returning from his ankle injury. He's just a touchdown-dependent streamer for Week 12.

Dwayne Allen caught 1-of-2 targets for 15 yards Week 9 against the Packers.

Dwayne Allen took a backseat in his first game back from injury to Jack Doyle, who caught five passes for 61 yards as Andrew Luck's safety blanket. Allen did get two good scoring opportunities, but he was taken down at the seven-yard line in the first quarter and had another pass bounce off his hands in the end zone. He will need to convert those types of chances to retain any fantasy value this season. Allen will be a touchdown-or-bust TE2 against the Titans after the bye.
Nov 6 - 8:10 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) is active for Week 9 against the Packers.

#AsExpected. Jack Doyle is not going to disappear, but Allen should once again take over as the 1A in the passing game. Allen is a back-end TE1 while Doyle is more of a touchdown-or-bust TE2. Indy declared FS Mike Adams (groin), DE Kendall Langford (knee), LG Jack Mewhort (triceps), RT Joe Reitz (concussion), OLB Chris Carter (hamstring), DL Henry Anderson (knee), and WR Tevaun Smith inactive for Week 9.
Nov 6 - 3:03 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Dwayne Allen (ankle, questionable) is expected to play in Sunday's Week 9 game against the Packers.

Allen's ankle is still "banged up," according to Rapsheet, but it looks like he's going to give it a go. Coming off a multi-week injury we wouldn't recommend Allen, even in a good matchup with Green Bay.
Nov 6 - 9:10 AM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) practiced again on Friday and is expected to be active for Sunday's game at Green Bay.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano acknowledged Allen is not 100 percent, however, and it seems likely he will be eased back in, possibly working as primarily a blocker for the Colts' sieve-like pass-protection unit. Jack Doyle remains playable as a streamer in a good matchup. Allen isn't a Week 9 fantasy option.
Nov 4 - 1:08 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) is practicing Thursday.

This is Allen's second session in a row, almost ensuring he will play this week. Jack Doyle should retain a role, however, making Allen a touchdown-dependent TE2.
Nov 3 - 11:54 AM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

It's Allen's first action since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 6. Consider him questionable for Sunday against the Packers, but a practice return puts him on track to play. That would bum Jack Doyle back down to TE2 status.
Nov 2 - 1:04 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 8.

Jack Doyle played 93 percent of the snaps in Allen's place last week.
Oct 28 - 1:10 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined Thursday.

Allen is going to miss his second straight game, giving Jack Doyle another week of TE1 value. Erik Swoope will pick up Doyle's scraps.
Oct 27 - 4:20 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Allen sat out Sunday's game with a sprained ankle and isn't off to a good start this week. If he sits, Jack Doyle will draw another start at tight end Sunday versus Kansas City. Doyle is coming off a career-high 78 yards in Week 7.
Oct 26 - 4:57 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) is listed as out for Week 7.

Jack Doyle will take over as the Colts' primary tight end and makes for an attractive streamer against the Titans. Doyle played 90 percent of Indy's offensive snaps in Week 6. Allen appears to have a high ankle sprain.
Oct 21 - 1:15 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Dwayne Allen has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle and is considered week to week.

Allen left early in the Sunday night loss to the Texans and was on crutches on the sideline. He's probably dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Extremely injury-prone during his career, Allen missed 21 games in his first four seasons. Jack Doyle and Erik Swoope are next up at tight end for the Colts.
Oct 17 - 8:48 PM

Dwayne Allen left Week 6 against the Texans with an ankle injury.

Allen went down on the Colts' first drive. He had a huge wrap on his ankle and was immediately ruled out for the game. Erik Swoope replaced Allen.
Oct 16 - 9:05 PM

Dwayne Allen caught six passes for 50 yards and a touchdown in Week 5.

Allen was more involved after being a non-factor the last three games. He was left wide open on a fourth-and-goal play action for his touchdown. Allen's been highly inconsistent through the first five weeks, but is going to remain a red-zone factor. He's a touchdown-dependent TE1 for Week 6 against Houston.
