Coby Fleener quiet as Saints beat Chargers

Coby Fleener finished with on reception for six yards on four targets in the Saints' preseason game against the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Fleener has had some buzz lately about being a post-hype sleeper. Last year he quietly finished as a borderline TE1 despite being one of the most frustrating players in fantasy. It's hard to imagine a tight end paired with Drew Brees not producing, but there are better options. Fleener should be considered nothing more than a TE2 with some upside until he proves otherwise.

Coby Fleener still not practicing

Coby Fleener is still not practicing during the Saints' joint practice with the Chargers leading up to this week's preseason tilt between the teams.

Fantasy Impact

With the disastrous first season in New Orleans still fresh in our minds, this is the last thing we want to see leading in to 2017. With the amount of money given to Fleener, it is put up or shut up time for him, meaning this is most likely his last season with the team as the Saints look to make the most of the time they have left with Drew Brees. If Fleener is truly injured, Josh Hill could be a nice late round flier in drafts.

Coby Fleener missing time with undisclosed injury

CBS Sports is reporting that Coby Fleener has been missing from Saints practice for multiple days.

Fantasy Impact

It's not time to panic, though this news has been somewhat swept under the rug. Fleener is off the fantasy radar for many after he finished with just 50 receptions for 631 yards and three touchdowns in his first season with the Saints. What most don't realize is that he still finished as a top 12 fantasy tight end, despite his struggles in year one with Drew Brees. If Fleener stays healthy, we should see him improve on his 2016 campaign, especially with the subtraction of Brandin Cooks from the offense, freeing up 117 targets from last year. Fleener is a high-upside TE2 for 2017. We'll keep a close eye on his practice participation over the next few weeks.

Coby Fleener quiet in Week 17

Coby Fleener caught three of eight targets for 38 yards on Sunday against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Fleener finished his disappointing campaign with 631 yards and three touchdowns, and simply never got into a groove. With a year in New Orleans under his belt, Fleener should improve in 2017, though it remains to be seen if he can become a reliable starting option in fantasy.

Coby Fleener posts two catches for 30 yards in Saints' week 16 victory

Coby Fleener was targeted five times, hauling in two catches for 30 yards (long of 21 yards).

Fantasy Impact

Fleener is averaging four targets per game over the last five weeks. His fantasy effectiveness will rely on efficiency, which wasn't there week 16. However, for those who like to live dangerously, the Saints play at Atlanta week 17. Atlanta currently allows the most points allowed versus expectation to the tight end position. He may be undervalued in DFS formats, and might be worth a spot in week 17 championship leagues.
