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, with a slight lean towards Fleener when debating between the two. (May 15)

Colts | Dwayne Allen missing offseason program (Wed May 13, 08:05 PM) - Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen is missing the first four weeks of the Colts' offseason program as part of his plan to play as many as 20 games in 2015. ďThe high ankle sprain (from 2014) lingered a little longer then I wanted it to. I talked to (Coach Pagano) about it and there was an understanding. Iíve been out here for two months, just grinding, getting my body in good shape so that I can go out and the team can depend on me. Getting late in the year (2014), I had a banged up knee and a banged up ankle. They didnít feel, I didnít feel, that they could depend on me and that was frustrating because I feel as if, in every situation throughout the season, they can count me,Ē Allen said.

Our View: Allen expects to rejoin the team Monday, May 18, for the beginning of organized team activities. The Colts have a ton of weapons on offense after collecting wide receivers through the draft and free agency. These added weapons could impact the fantasy numbers that Allen puts up in 2015. His current ADP is TE10 (9.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
