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.
Oct 1 - 7:14 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) remains sidelined at Colts practice.

Allen sprained his ankle in the Week 2 loss to the Jets and missed last week's win over the Titans. Coby Fleener will continue to fill in as long as Allen's out.
Sep 30 - 11:43 AM

Colts declared TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) inactive for Week 3 against the Titans.

Allen was ruled out on Friday. Coby Fleener is an interesting streaming option as the every-down tight end for the Colts. Indianapolis also declared CB Darius Butler, CB Greg Toler, OLB Trent Cole, OG Lance Louis, DL T.Y. McGill and OL Denzelle Good inactive for Week 3.
Sep 27 - 11:36 AM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Titans.

Coby Fleener will be an every-down player for the Colts and immediately enters the fantasy radar as a TE1 streamer in a tasty matchup. Fleener scored multiple touchdowns in 2-of-3 games Allen missed in 2014. You can read a more comprehensive take on Fleener's Week 3 fantasy outlook in Evan Silva's Matchups column, which is accessible at the link below.
Sep 25 - 12:48 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) did not practice on Thursday.

He wasn't at Wednesday's practice either. Unless he can get through at least a partial practice on Friday, we wouldn't expect to see Allen in Week 3. Fellow tight end Coby Fleener might get more attention from Andrew Luck if Allen has to sit.
Sep 24 - 2:30 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Allen exited Monday night's Week 2 loss to the Jets early in the first half and was unable to return. When healthy, Allen is a touchdown-dependent TE1/2.
Sep 23 - 12:02 PM

The Colts are calling Dwayne Allen (ankle) "day to day."

It's good news for a player with a history of foot issues. Allen missed three games with an ankle injury in 2014. Even though it appears Allen has avoided a high sprain, he'll have a tough time getting ready for Sunday's game on a short week. His status will be updated when the Colts return to practice on Wednesday.
Sep 23 - 12:03 AM

Dwayne Allen exited Monday night's Week 2 game against the Jets with an ankle injury and is out for the remainder of the game.

Allen walked to the locker room shortly before halftime. He wasn't targeted on any of Andrew Luck's 14 first-half passes. Coby Fleener will handle duties.
Sep 21 - 10:15 PM

Dwayne Allen caught 3-of-6 targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in Indy's Week 1 loss to the Bills.

Allen could have had a bigger day, but had a 27-yard catch undone by a penalty. Allen was completely uncovered on his score, a six-yard number in the fourth quarter. With T.Y. Hilton week to week with a bruised knee, Allen will be a firm, if low-end, TE1 for Week 2 against the Jets.
Sep 13 - 6:41 PM

Dwayne Allen caught 2-of-5 targets for 25 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams.

With Coby Fleener sidelined with a minor ankle injury, Allen split first-team reps with Jack Doyle. Allen finishes the preseason with three grabs for 29 yards. Allen has a nose for the end zone, but doesn't draw consistent enough targets to be more than a mid-range TE2.
Aug 29 - 11:28 PM

Dwayne Allen shed 13 pounds this offseason.

Allen has slimmed down to 255 after playing last season at 268. The 25-year-old hopes the weight loss will help him play faster. Allen reeled in eight touchdowns last year, but only amassed 60 yards once in 13 contests. He's a touchdown-or-bust fantasy contributor sitting on the low end of the TE1 spectrum.
