2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE
Defenses had a tough time locating Allen in the red zone over the first nine games of the year, which led to seven TDs. Allen average 55 plays per game over his first nine starts compared to 48 plays per game by Fleener. Dwayne holds the edge in blocking, which leads to him seeing most of his actions on first and second down. Allen ran a pass pattern on his 48.5 percent of his plays last year (61.8 percent by Fleener). Even with his success in TDs, Dwayne never had more than four catches in any game while averaging less than five targets per game. He should be position to catch 40 or more balls for 500-plus yards with a half-dozen TDs. His opportunity works well in DC leagues and he is a very good backup TE due to his ability to score. Over the last two years, he missed time due a bad hip injury that required surgery and an ankle issue in 2014.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen is listed as probable for Thursday Night Football. He has missed the past two games with an ankle injury. Allen will become the top tight end in Indy, assuming he's active. While he's likely to play, you should still monitor this situation up to game time just to play it safe.
Allen is a very consistent source of Fantasy points when healthy. Staying healthy has been a major issue though. He's also not a guy that plays well through injuries. Nonetheless, he is Andrew Luck's favorite red zone target and is excellent in the red zone. Allen should be considered a high-end TE2 this week since he is still a bit risky with that ankle and his QB is banged up. Coby Fleener should become an afterthought or desperation play at best.

|14.05||#28 World Ranked - I like Allen's upside. He's my TE2, but could play a role competing for flex consideration if he can re-establish himself coming off an injury.|
