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.

Allen was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's win over Tennessee despite playing 49 snaps on offense.

EDGE Analysis

Allen played more than Jack Doyle (39 snaps) but neither tight end was involved in the passing game as Doyle had just one target. Allen has disappeared in the passing attack the past three weeks with only six targets and two receptions over that span.

Allen (ankle) caught one of two targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 31-26 win at Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Allen, making his first appearance since Oct. 16, caught his lone pass around the goal line early in the first quarter. Meanwhile, fellow TE Jack Doyle had a solid game, catching five of nine targets for 61 yards. Allen should be well rested for the Colts' next game in Week 11 against Tennessee.

Allen (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Allen, who last suited up on Oct. 16, is out there if you need him Sunday, but it remains to be seen how close to 100 percent he'll be in his return to action. Meanwhile, Jack Doyle, who helped fill in at TE while Allen was out, should also remain in the mix this week, along with Erik Swoope.

Allen (ankle) was a limited participant in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Green Bay. However, earlier in the day head coach Chuck Pagano said he's expected to play but not be 100 percent healthy, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds like Allen will be able to play, but he may be a risky option for fantasy owners considering he won't be at full strength.

Allen (ankle) is anticipated by coach Chuck Pagano to play Sunday against the Packers, although he won't be 100 percent healthy, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Allen has practiced three consecutive days despite carrying an ankle ailment, and although he still isn't fully healthy, the tight end should make his first appearance since Week 6 this Sunday. While that marks good news for fantasy owners, the presence of Jack Doyle could cut into Allen's targets and snaps at tight end.
