Summary

Andrew Luck and the Colts loved to involve the tight end in the offense, especially in the red zone. Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen combined to receive 16 of Luck's 40 touchdown passes in 2014. Throw in another two to Jack Doyle and that's nearly half of Luck's touchdown passes to the tight end. There is definitely fantasy value to be had from the tight end spot on the Colts. The only down side is that both players take away value from the other. An injury to one would elevate the other into a must start fantasy option. Rostering one or the other as a TE2 is a wise move, as you're betting on at least one not completing a full season. Injury wise, Dwayne Allen is the greater risk. He has played in only 14 games in the last two seasons, whereas Fleener hasn't missed a game in the same time span. The Colts scored 28.6 points per game last year and their offense is expected to be just as good, if not better in 2015. Consider Fleener and Allen as excellent later round tight end selections.

Colts | Dwayne Allen the preferred TE? (Fri Jul 24, 09:28 PM) - Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen has started every game he has been healthy enough to play in, and Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star believes Allen's more complete skill set and the team's expanded receiving corps could lead to more snaps for Allen as the lone tight end in 2015.

Our View: Allen is fantastic, but he's also been banged up quite a bit. Over the last two years, Allen has only played in 14 games. If healthy, Allen should be a high-upside TE2 for fantasy owners. His current ADP is TE13 (12.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.
