Allen has always been a fantasy tease, but expectations have adjusted low enough now that his injury-prone nature is tolerable at a late-round cost in best ball leagues. He'll probably score 4-6 times if he can play in at least thirteen games, as he has in four out of five years, and if Rob Gronkowski goes down, he might make your best ball at tight end.

Summary

After a disappointing few years with the Indianapolis Colts, Dwayne Allen is hoping to turn things around with the New England Patriots. If there is anyone on the planet who can get more out of an underwhelming player than Bill Belichick, we'd be shocked. That being the case, we believe Allen could see a step forward under the tenure of Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. As long as Rob Gronkowski is healthy, Allen's role is likely to be small and he'll be well behind Gronkowski in the pecking order, not to mention Brandin Cooks and Julian Edelman. However if Gronkowski is banged up, Allen will get a lot of opportunity. Further, if he can prove himself effective in training camp, Belichick and McDaniels may try to have both tight ends on the field as they briefly were able when they had both Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez on the roster. If that happens, Allen will still be lower on the list of Tom Brady favorites, but the opportunities will come nonetheless. (May 22)

Patriots | Dwayne Allen comfortable with new offense (Sun Aug 13, 11:08 AM) - New England patriots TE Dwayne Allen is running better than he was in the spring and seems more comfortable with the offense, according to ESPN.com's Mike Reiss.

Our View: This is an improvement from what we've seen reported from OTAs and minicamp. It didn't seem like Allen was fitting in early on, but it sounds like he's getting up to speed with what the Patriots want him to do. Allen won't have much fantasy impact so long as Rob Gronkowski is healthy. If Gronk gets banged up, Allen has TE1 upside in this dynamic offense.

Patriots | Dwayne Allen seeing a ton of red zone work (Tue Aug 8, 01:20 PM) - New England Patriots TE Dwayne Allen has been the recipient of 'a ton of targets in the red zone' during training camp, according to the Boston Globe's Ben Volin.

Our View: Allen has been a red zone monster in the past - when he is able to stay on the field. It's hard to see him being more prominent than Rob Gronkowski, but if Gronkowski goes down, Allen will be an insta-pickup, and you could do worse than Allen as a desperation tight end play any week you need one. He's going undrafted in most leagues.
