Coby Fleener TE IND 4 Days

Fleener was targeted seven times in Sunday's lopsided loss to the Cowboys, finishing with four catches for 36 yards.

Andrew Luck managed just 109 passing yards before being pulled in the third quarter, and backup Matt Hasselbeck didn't perform much better. As a result, the entire passing attack suffered. Fleener has had three mediocre games in a row, but he's capable of going off at any moment, and he is a worthy starting option in Week 17 if your league is still playing.

Fleener had two receptions for 32 yards on five targets in Sunday's win over Houston.

Meanwhile Dwayne Allen caught a three-yard touchdown pass and had four targets. The two tight ends will likely split targets with Allen getting shorter red zone looks and Fleener getting deeper passes.

Fleener had five catches on 10 targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 25-24 win at Cleveland.

Fleener was second on the Colts in all receiving categories Sunday, trailing only T.Y. Hilton, who exploded to catch 10-of-19 targets for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Meanwhile, Dwayne Allen (ankle) returned from a two-game layoff, but only caught 1-of-3 targets for five yards. Assuming Allen made it out of Sunday's game with no setbacks, it's possible that Fleener will see a dip in production, at least a minor one. Next week, Fleener will take on the Texans at home.

Fleener had four catches on seven targets for 127 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against Washington.

Starting for the second consecutive game in place of Dwayne Allen (ankle), Fleener reached the 100-yard mark for the second time in the last three games, while scoring his fifth and sixth touchdowns of the season. It actually could have been more but he dropped a pass in the second quarter that surely would have gone for another score. Fleener has plenty of fantasy upside, but quarterback Andrew Luck spreads the ball around to a number of different receivers, which can occasionally limit Fleener's potential.

Fleener had two catches on four targets for 28 yards Sunday against the Jaguars.

Fleener looked primed for an increased role in the offense after Dwayne Allen was ruled out with an ankle injury, but it didn't happen Sunday, as he posted his seventh game this season with fewer than 35 yards. Making matters worse, the disappointing performance came one week after Fleener caught seven passes for 144 yards against the Patriots. Quarterback Andrew Luck continues to spread the ball around, with wideouts T.Y. Hilton and Reggie Wayne getting most of the looks, so Fleener isn't likely to provide significant fantasy production unless he scores a touchdown, something he's done only four times this season.

With Dwayne Allen out, Fleener is in line to continue to see an expanded role Sunday against the Jaguars.

Coming off an effort last Sunday in which he caught 7-of-7 targets for 144 yards against the Patriots, Fleener looks like a viable Week 12 play this weekend against a Jaguars' defense that is allowing an average of 261.9 passing yards per game to date.

Fleener caught 7-of-7 targets for 144 yards in Sunday's 42-20 loss to the Patriots, while teammate Dwayne Allen suffered an ankle injury that is initially thought to be mild, Kevin Bowen of colts.com reports.

Allen left in the fourth quarter and never returned, creating a more favorable situation for Fleener's production. The former Stanford Cardinal responded with arguably his best game in the NFL, though the strong showing didn't include a touchdown. Fleener did shatter his previous career-high mark of 107 receiving yards, and he reached seven receptions for just the second time. While he probably won't morph into a top option, Fleener becomes much more interesting if Allen (ankle) misses any games.

Fleener caught 4-of-11 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 40-24 win over the Giants.

Fleener made up for an otherwise uninspiring game over the span of a few seconds in the second quarter, catching passes of 21 and 32 yards on back-to-back plays, with the second going for a touchdown. He bobbled the first catch, which caused the Colts to rush to the line for the snap, but the Giants were unready while waiting for a challenge flag that came too late. The result was an easy touchdown to Fleener, who went uncovered on a corner route due to the defensive mishap. The former Stanford Cardinal had an odd night in many regards, recording a whopping eight targets during that second quarter alone, after catching just one pass on four targets the previous week. Though Fleener had a strong statistical showing Monday night, Dwayne Allen remains the bigger red-zone threat, and also the superior player.

Fleener had just one reception on four targets in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh.

Indy had just six targets to tight ends in 45 pass attempts as the Colts tried to throw it deep after falling behind by a lot early. Fleener and Dwayne Allen continue to split the targets at tight end with Allen more of a red zone threat (eight TDs compared to Fleener's two TDs).

Fleener had four catches on five targets for 64 yards Sunday against the Bengals.

Fleener continues to split tight end targets with Dwayne Allen (three catches on six targets for 52 yards and a touchdown Sunday), while also trailing the touchdown count five to three. With the way quarterback Andrew Luck is playing this season, both are threats to score in any given week, but they also continue to limit each other's fantasy upsides.
