2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick


Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Fleener has four catches or less in each of his last four games with no TDs. On the year he has two TDs and only two games with more than four catches. He is averaging 5.5 targets per game. In Week 4 he had one of his better games (9/83/1) against the Jaguars. Jacksonville is 30th in the league in TE Fantasy defense, with their last four opponents scoring 117.1 Fantasy points from the TE position (29.3 per game - 38/431/6). If you are playing trends, Fleener is well worth a gamble. The downside is his low resume.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Fleener has three catches or less in six of his last seven games, with fewer than 50 yards receiving in seven straight games. Last week he was out-snapped by Dwayne Allen 48 to 43. Fleener has two TDs, while averaging only 5.3 targets per game. Last year he only had one catch for four yards vs. the Steelers. Pittsburgh ranks 24th in the league in TE Fantasy defense, with eight teams scoring fewer than 14 Fantasy points. The luster of the Colts' TEs never happened in 2015 after a great 2014 season.

After splitting time with TE Dwayne Allen over the first nine games of the year, Fleener saw his opportunity spike over the last half of 2014 due an injury to Allen and some injuries to the WR position. Over the last eight games of the year, Coby caught 31 passes for 556 yards with five TDs on 48 targets. His value was created by his ability to make big plays (15.2 yards per catch) and his scoring ability. In comparison, Fleener only had 18 catches for 218 yards with three TDs on 34 targets over his first eight games. He out-snapped Allen 812 to 633 on the year, but Dwayne only played 11 full games. Last year Luck completed 99 passes to the TE position for 1,288 yards and 19 TDs. Fleener will be a big-play option with added value in TDs. His results will vary from week-to-week due to game plan and opponent. I expected him to see similar snaps as Allen, but Coby will hold a 2-to-1 edge in catches. Fleener has a very good chance of leading Indy in receiving TDs. Based on the talent at TE in the league, Coby should be a top five or six player at his position with a chance to catch 60 passes for 800-plus yards and 10-plus TDs.
