Dwayne Allen caught two passes for 16 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 win over the Texans.
Andrew Luck ripped a pass into a very tight window to Allen for a 3-yard TD in the second quarter. It's the kind of play he needs to stay on the TE1 radar. Of course, Allen has been a red-zone monster for much of the year, scoring eight times in 12 games. He'll have a reasonable shot at finding the end zone against a Cowboys defense that is not good against tight ends in Week 16. Dec 14 - 4:56 PM

Dwayne Allen secured 1-of-3 targets for five yards in the Colts' Week 14 win over the Browns.

Allen has been a mid-range TE1 whenever healthy this season, but was a minimal part of Indianapolis' passing game in his first game back from a multi-week ankle injury. Touchdown dependent, Allen will be a boom-or-bust fantasy play when the Colts face the Texans in Week 15. Sort of a poor man's Julius Thomas, Allen still has eight touchdowns over his last 12 games.
Dec 7 - 5:25 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 14.

Allen will be ready to rock for Sunday's game with the Browns. Although Coby Fleener has played well the past three weeks, Allen's nose for the end zone means he's returning as a TE1. He's a high-floor, low-ceiling option.
Dec 4 - 2:56 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

Allen is fully expected to be back on the field for Week 14 against the Browns after missing the past two games and much of the Week 11 tilt with the Patriots. Allen will be a mid-range TE1 against a Browns defense that defends the position relatively well. Coby Fleener heads back to TE2 status.
Dec 3 - 1:57 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) is expected back for Week 14.

Coach Chuck Pagano himself said so on Monday, while the Colts waived TE Weslye Saunders on Tuesday. We'll get a concrete update on Allen's status when Indy returns to practice on Wednesday, but owners can tentatively pencil him as their TE1 after he missed Weeks 12 and 13.
Dec 2 - 3:10 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Monday there's a "good chance" Dwayne Allen (ankle) returns to practice this week.

Pagano said Allen is "trending in the right direction" after missing the last two games. The Colts are gearing up for a Week 14 trip to Cleveland.
Dec 1 - 4:23 PM

Colts declared TE Dwayne Allen inactive for Week 13 against the Redskins.

Coby Fleener will be the primary tight end for the second straight game while Jack Doyle should see increased snaps as well. Fleener is an upside TE1 despite laying an egg Week 12. Colts also declared LB Andy Studebaker, OG Lance Louis, OG Hugh Thornton, OL Xavier Nixon, DL Zach Kerr and TE Weslye Saunders inactive for Week 13.
Nov 30 - 11:40 AM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined at Friday's practice and has been ruled out for Week 13.

Coby Fleener will play the vast majority of the snaps against Washington, with Jack Doyle serving as the blocking tight end. Despite last week's clunker, Fleener is squarely in the mix as an upside TE1. Allen has now missed two games. It's worth wondering if he indeed has a high ankle sprain.
Nov 28 - 12:40 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Allen's odds of returning for Week 13 are appearing lower by the day. A Friday return would change that, but even then, Allen would be no better than 50-50. Owners need to be making other plans.
Nov 27 - 2:40 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Allen remains day to day. Not being able to practice Wednesday isn't a good sign for his Week 13 status.
Nov 26 - 2:04 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano stated Monday that Dwayne Allen (ankle) remains "day to day" ahead of a Week 13 game with the Redskins.

Pagano "doesn't know" whether Allen will practice this week. "He’s trending in the right direction but he’s going to be day-to-day," were Pagano's words. Fantasy owners shouldn't count on having Allen available against the Skins.
Nov 24 - 4:09 PM

Colts declared TE Dwayne Allen, LCB Greg Toler, OG Lance Louis, OL Khaled Holmes, DT Kelcy Quarles, RT Gosder Cherilus, and DL Zach Kerr inactive for Week 12 against the Jaguars.

Allen (ankle) is week-to-week. Toler suffered a concussion last week, forcing Darius Butler and Josh Gordy into heavier snaps against Cecil Shorts and company. Cherilus a shoulder injury. Joe Reitz will start at right tackle.
Nov 23 - 11:48 AM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Jaguars.

As expected. Coby Fleener will get the start and be an every-down player in place of Allen. He's a plug-and-play TE1 against Jacksonville's bottom-third defense.
Nov 21 - 12:59 PM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Allen has missed practice all week and is fully expected to sit out Week 12 against the Jaguars. Coby Fleener is a plug-and-play mid-to-high TE1. Allen is believed to be dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Consider him week-to-week.
Nov 21 - 11:22 AM

Dwayne Allen (ankle) is not practicing Thursday.

Yet to practice this week, Allen is trending toward sitting out Sunday. The Colts certainly don't need him to beat the Jaguars at home. It would leave Coby Fleener as a very interesting TE1 plug-n-play as the Jags give up the 11th-most fantasy points to tight ends. The often inefficient Fleener was spectacular after Allen went down against the Patriots last week, finishing with 7-144-0 on seven targets.
