TE - FA
Week 8 Outlook
The Saints are reportedly releasing Coby Fleener.
Fleener had an uninspiring career with the Saints, with just 72 catches for 926 yards and five touchdowns over 27 games in two seasons. With Fleener gone, Ben Watson should have a prime opportunity to carve out a fantasy-relevant role, though the Saints' reliance on their running game likely limits his value to that of a mediocre TE2 this year.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener (concussion) was placed on the injured reserve list.
Suffering his fifth concussion of his career last week, Fleener was placed on the injured reserve list, ending his season. A disappointment since joining the Saints, their offense shouldn't skip a beat.
Coby Fleener had one reception for eight yards before leaving with a concussion in the second half of the loss to the Rams on Sunday.
Fleener was having another game to forget before leaving with a concussion. With the injury suffered Sunday, Fleener should now be dropped from any team who was still holding onto him hoping for a breakout.
Coby Fleener caught all five of his targets on Sunday against the Redskins for 91 yards.
Fleener had a good game against the 29th ranked defense against tight ends in the NFL. With the negative game script for most of the second half of this game, the Saints had all hands on deck. Going forward Fleener is still not a start-worthy option and should not be picked up in any leagues.
Coby Fleener had zero catches on one official target in Week 10 as the Saints beat the Bills on Sunday.
Fleener was a low-end tight end even in the best circumstances, but with the rushing game taking over, he has fallen from a low-end play into drop territory. Pay him no mind in fantasy.
