2016 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


It will be interesting to see how Fantasy owners value Allen in 2016. His best success came in his rookie season in 2012 (45/521/3 on 66 targets). Healthy has been an issue on each of his last three years leading to 21 missed games out of a possible 48 chances. Dwayne flashed TD ability (8) in 2014. He's spent the last two years in a split role with Coby Fleener. The Colts completed 80 passes to the TE position in 2015 on 125 targets for 704 yards and five TDs. This was a huge step back from their success in 2014 (99/1288/19). Indy paid him $29.4 million for four seasons in the offseason while letting Fleener go, which tells me that Allen could be in line for his best season in the NFL if he can stay healthy. Dwayne should be an upside TE2 in the Fantasy market with a very good chance of finishing as top 12 TE in 12 team PPR leagues. Luck like to threw the ball to the TE at the goal line so Allen may lead the team in passing TDs. He has a chance at 60+ catches for 700+ yards.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
12.12 Benny Ricciardi - I really really really wanted Coby Fleener as my TE1, but Evan Silva snatched him up a few rounds earlier. With Fleener in New Orleans, Allen is now hopefully going to see more targets in Indy, especially with Luck back.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
11.09 Gridiron Experts - Jody Smith - Allen has been criminally underused in Indianapolis, and with Coby Fleener now plying his trade in New Orleans, Allen looks like a good bet to finish as top-10 fantasy tight end in 2016.
