Dwayne Allen TE IND 2 Months

Allen caught 4-of-4 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-13 win over the Broncos.

This is about what was expected from Allen, who typically doesn't see a ton of targets, but is pretty efficient with what he gets, and also draws a high percentage of his looks in the end zone. Six different Colts had at least four targets Sunday, and fellow tight end Coby Fleener got six. Fleener and Allen both have key roles in the offense, with Fleener focused primarily on receiving, while Allen is the more well-rounded tight end. The AFC Championship Game should provide a nice matchup for Allen, as teams often funnel more targets to their secondary receivers when facing Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis. Ravens tight end Owen Daniels caught 4-of-11 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Allen (knee) caught three passes for 30 yards in Sunday's 26-10 wild card win over the Bengals.

In his return to action, Allen was targeted three times, while Coby Fleener saw two looks (notching one catch for 18 yards) and Jack Doyle caught all three of his targets for nine yards. With a committee approach at tight end these days, Allen remains a hit-or-miss lineup option, though his red zone ability does give him a chance to help fantasy owners on any given week.

Though the Colts did not practice Thursday, Allen (knee) was listed as a non-participant on the practice report posted by the team, Tom James of the Tribune-Star reports.

Per Kevin Bowen of Colts.com, coach Chuck Pagano has indicated that Allen likely won't play Sunday against the Titans, and in such a scenario, Coby Fleener and Jack Doyle would handle the team's Week 17 tight end duties.

Allen (knee) did not practice Wednesday, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Coach Chuck Pagano called Allen day-to-day earlier this week, but given that the Colts have little to play for in Week 17 with their playoff seeding all but set, there's a solid chance that the Colts will err on the side of caution with Allen on Sunday against the Titans.
