Coby Fleener made three catches for 21 yards on eight targets. He also saw a total of 49 offensive snaps, as compared to 38 for fellow TE Dwayne Allen.
Fantasy Impact: While Fleener was more utilized, Allen was the much more productive of the two. Fleener and Luck have struggled to capitalize on their experience with each other going back to their days at Stanford together. Keep an eye on the target and snap count reports, if Allen passes Fleener in usage there will be no reason for keeping Fleener on your fantasy roster.
Coby Fleener finished the third preseason game with 2 catches for 31 yards and a touchdown on 4 targets.
Fantasy Impact: It was encouraging to see him haul in the touchdown reception after his poor performance in the second preseason game. He is a great red zone threat due to his size and could score a handful of touchdowns this season. Despite this he remains a TE2 worth drafting in deeper leagues with so much competition for targets and catches.
Chris Hagen and Bob Kravitz interviewed Coby Fleener Monday morning during the Colts training camp practice. Fleener acknowledged that there would be some sort of ripple effect with Dwayne Allen back, but was excited to play in more two tight end sets. He also said that his goal for this season was to be more consistent and to be someone the coaches can count on. (Source: FOX59)
Fantasy Impact: Coby Fleener has been up and down throughout his first two years in the league and if he is to take the next step forward he will definitely have to improve his consistency. The offense should finally see some stability this year as a whole and this should allow players like Fleener to become more consistent. Currently, Allen is listed ahead of Fleener on the Colts official depth chart. Allen is the TE to own as he has more fantasy upside. Fleener is only worth a roster spot in the deepest of leagues.
Coby Fleener, who has been relatively quiet during camp, made a nice touchdown grab on a pass across the middle. While Wayne received most of the early attention from Luck, Fleener managed a couple of impressive catches in addition to the TD. (Source: Colts.com)
Fantasy Impact: Fleener's performance in camp has been somewhat overshadowed by the return of fellow TE Dwayne Allen. It is worth noting that the Colt's are looking to implement more two TE sets into the offense which will create opportunities for both. Fleener finished second on the team last year in both receptions and yards (52 for 608). Couple the return Allen to distract the opposing linebackers with the increased opportunities in these two TE sets and Fleener is on track to be a late round sleeper.
