Value Plays: Tight Ends

The Footballguys staff finds value at the tight end position

A fantasy draft is all about obtaining the most value with each selection. There is value available throughout a draft, and grabbing it is one of the most important keys to a successful fantasy team. In an attempt to point out this value, we asked our staff to look through the top 150 players and identify players that should outperform their draft position.

Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis

Holloway: Allen has failed to match his rookie success and has been frequently injured. He made 45 catches for 521 yards, back in 2012, but has only caught 46 passes in the three years since. He is a solid blocking and receiving tight end and should get more opportunity in 2016, with Fleener moving on to New Orleans and the Colts getting Andrew Luck back. Two seasons ago, Allen scored 8 touchdowns on only 29 receptions so he can be an effective red zone option.

Howe: Allen is still available far too deep into fantasy drafts. The current TE17, Allen sits comfortably atop a barren Colts depth chart with Coby Fleener out of town. And this is an offense that should easily improve upon its pitiful, injury-wrecked 2015. Allen is a double-duty TE, ensuring his role on the field when healthy, and we're just two years removed from his 29-catch, 8-touchdown breakout. Andrew Luck's red zone love for his tight ends dates all the way back to Stanford, so another 8-10 touchdown season seems well within Allen's range of outcomes.
