Fleener killed some of us who drafted him as a top 6 tight end last season, but he was only bad to start the season, which is fairly normal for a receiver in a new offense. In fact, Fleener ended up as a top 12 tight end and did it while only starting eight games. With Brandin Cooks gone and a year under his belt with the offense, he should improve upon his 81 targets from 2016 and should be considered a lock to be a top 12 tight end for the fourth time in five years.

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.
