Allen had three receptions for 34 yards, including a 15-yard touchdown, on three targets in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Allen had a disapointing season as he had just 35 receptions for 406 yards despite entering the season as the No. 1 tight end after the departure of Coby Fleener. Allen did have six touchdowns, but three came in one game and he had seven games with two or fewer receptions. With the emergence of Jack Doyle and Erik Swoope, Allen may face increased competition for targets next season.

Allen had three receptions for 31 yards on four targets in Saturday's loss to Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Allen had just four targets and one catch the prior two weeks, so this is a mild bounceback. Still, he's become the second tight end in the passing game after Jack Doyle and has to contend with an emerging Eric Swoope as well.

Allen (hip) had just one reception for 13 yards on two targets in Sunday's win at Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Allen had what looks like a fluky three touchdown receptions in Week 13 as he's had just one catch and four targets the past two games. A nagging hip issue could be a concern as he played just 33 of 58 snaps on offense. With Erik Swoope having three targets in Sunday's game, the Colts may have three receiving options at tight end. Allen's fantasy value continues to decline as a result.

Allen (hip) is active Sunday against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Following a disappointing Week 14 when Allen was held without a catch, the veteran tight end missed Wednesday's practice and followed it up with a limited showing Thursday. Allen logged a full practice Friday, however, paving the way for him to be active in Week 15. With wideout Donte Moncrief (hamstring) inactive Sunday, there's a chance the Colts could shift more of their offensive focus to the tight ends, giving Allen and Jack Doyle a few additional looks. That being said, the Minnesota defense will be no easy task, as they are one of just five teams in the NFL that have allowed two or less touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season.

Allen (hip) was a full participant in Friday's practice, but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

With Donte Moncrief ruled out of Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, the Colts may throw more to tight ends Allen and Jack Doyle. Allen looks set to play as he fully practiced after being limited Thursday and missing Wednesday's practice.

Allen (hip) was limited in Thursday's practice after missing Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Allen's return to practice would appear to indicate this is a minor injury. The bigger issue is Allen's hit-or-miss fantasy production, as he didn't have a reception last week after three touchdown receptions the week before.

Allen (hip) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

We'll track Allen's status in the coming days, though he's been a hit-or-miss fantasy option of late and assuming he suits up Sunday against the Vikings, he'll be a speculative Week 15 play, with Jack Doyle also in the team's TE mix.

Allen was targeted twice, but failed to record a catch in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Well that was quite the come down from his three touchdown performance in Monday's victory over the Jets. Andrew Luck had a slightly better rapport with fellow tight end Jack Doyle Sunday, targeting him six times compared to Allen's two. As a whole though, the Colts were never really able to get anything going in the loss. Allen will look to get back on track next week against the Vikings.

Allen caught all four of his targets for 72 yards and three touchdowns Monday night against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Allen took full advantage of an abysmal defensive effort from the Jets, scoring on both of the Colts' first two offensive drives of Monday night's contest. That set the tone for the blowout that ensued, and Allen added to the scoreline with another touchdown before halftime. In finding pay dirt from 7, 21 and 23 yards on his respective scores, Allen's outburst provided fantasy owners with an exceedingly pleasant surprise, as he not only brought his touchdown tally from two to five, but his 72 yards also marked a season best. That gives Allen considerable momentum heading into Sunday's game versus the Texans.

Allen brought in five of six targets for 49 yards in Thursday's 28-7 loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Allen posted his best reception and yardage totals since Week 5, and he played a more substantial role than usual due to the absence of T.Y. Hilton in the second half. He seemed to have a good rapport with backup QB Scott Tolzien overall, which could actually bode well for Allen's fantasy prospects if Andrew Luck (concussion) is forced to miss any additional time. The fifth-year tight end's production had been virtually non-existent over the previous three games he'd participated in, as he'd totaled just two catches on six targets for 24 yards over that span. Allen will look to continue building some positive momentum in the home stretch of the season when the Colts visit the Jets in Week 13.
