Colts TE Dwayne Allen (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17. With Allen out, Coby Fleener should get the start, though it’s tough to trust any of the Indianapolis players given their performance against Dallas last week. The Colts are locked into their playoff spot, so they don’t have anything to play for except for momentum.

Jalil Brown DB
Gosder Cherilus T
T.Y. Hilton WR

Fantasy Impact:

With Hilton inactive, Donte Moncrief draws the start and is a fantasy WR2 start with Reggie Wayne (PPR) and Hakeem Nicks having Sneaky Start appeal. Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen also get a bump. Andrew Luck's ranking takes a slight hit with Hilton out, but he has enough weapons and should be able to manufacture plenty of fantasy points against Dallas.

Pagano: 'Don't count T.Y. Hilton out'

It was pointed out to Colts HC Chuck Pagano that players who don't practice at all during a game week almost never play on Sunday. But Pagano was adamant he's not ruling T.Y. Hilton out.

"For some," Pagano responded. "This guy is pretty special. Don't count him out."

Fantasy Impact:

As we reported yesterday, those around the team consider him doubtful even though his official status is questionable. If he’s out, Donte Moncrief becomes a fantasy WR2 with Reggie Wayne (PPR) and Hakeem Nicks having Sneaky Start appeal. Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen would also get a bump. Andrew Luck’s ranking takes a slight hit with Hilton out, but he has enough weapons and should be able to manufacture plenty of fantasy points against Dallas.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 16. The beat writers are describing Hilton as doubtful, though he’s officially questionable. We currently do not expect him to play, since Indianapolis doesn’t have a whole lot to play for. If he’s out, Donte Moncrief becomes a fantasy WR2 with Reggie Wayne (PPR) and Hakeem Nicks having Sneaky Start appeal. Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen would also get a bump. Andrew Luck’s ranking takes a slight hit with Hilton out, but he has enough weapons and should be able to manufacture plenty of fantasy points against Dallas.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle, probable) took full practice reps all week and is probable for Week 14. Allen will be back this week, and his return will put a big dent in Coby Fleener’s fantasy value. Allen was the #7 TE prior to his injury, so he should return to TE1 status in Week 14.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) took full practice reps again Thursday. Allen is expected back this week, and his return will put a big dent in Coby Fleener’s fantasy value. Allen was the #7 TE prior to his injury, so he should return to TE1 status in Week 14.

Wednesday, December 3, 2014, 6:30pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday. Allen is expected back this week, and his return will put a big dent in Coby Fleener’s fantasy value. Allen was the #7 TE prior to his injury, so he should return to TE1 status in Week 14.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen expected back Sunday at Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact:

Allen was "trending up," according to HC Chuck Pagano, as of Monday, and Tuesday the Colts released TE Weslye Saunders. Colby Fleener's value will take a hit after a monster game in Week 13.

Pagano: Dwayne Allen 'trending in right direction'

Monday, December 1, 2014, 8:28pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Indianapolis Colts tight end Dwayne Allen, who has missed the past two games with a high ankle sprain, could return to practice Wednesday, coach Chuck Pagano said Monday.

“Trending in the right direction,” Pagano said about Allen. “Looks like we could have him available for practice on Wednesday, which would be great. They’re going to take him out and test him and run him and move him around. He’s doing well.”

Fantasy Impact:

Allen could end up being eased back in Week 14, but that remains to be seen. He could also go back to splitting up targets with Colby Fleener. Fleener, of course, busted out for a monster game against Washington in Week 13. Either way, it appears Allen is on track to play Week 14, but we'll continue to update his status this week.

Friday, November 28, 2014, 6:04pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 13. Coby Fleener is locked in to heavy snaps with Allen out.

Wednesday, November 26, 2014, 6:20pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. We’re assuming Allen is out until he starts practicing. Coby Fleener was a disappointment last week, but he’s still a low-end TE1 against Washington this week.

Coach HC Chuck Pagano says TE Dwayne Allen is trending in the right direction. Day-to-day.

Fantasy Impact:

Colby Fleener would get the nod again if Allen doesn't play. Even with Allen out in Week 12, Fleener didn't produce the fantasy numbers owners hoped for. The Colts host the Redskins in a pretty friendly matchup in Week 13.

Friday, November 21, 2014, 6:26pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 12. Coby Fleener can be dialed up as a top 5 option against the Jaguars. Fleener has gained 64-plus yards and/or scored a touchdown in six of his last eight games, and is the #8 TE over that span.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne on TE Coby Fleener: 'He's growing up.'

Colts WR Reggie Wayne on TE Coby Fleener's big game...

“I told Coby numerous times during the game, ‘Great play. Great play.’ And even after the game I said, ‘You grew up tonight, man. You grew up. You had a great game.’ It was the Coby Fleener that we all see in practice show up in the game. A lot of people don’t understand his speed and his size and his height. He can be a mismatch. There’s no way he shouldn’t be listed in the elite group of tight ends,” Wayne said on his weekly radio show.

“There’s no going back from here. He’s growing up,” Wayne says of Fleener.

“We’ve seen this in Coby in spurts. But like I told him, ‘There’s no going back. There’s no going backwards. From here on out, you just set the standard. You just set the table so now everybody is going to expect you to perform this way every week. Coby is to the point now where everything should be going and we believe it is. He showed that the other night.”

Chuck Pagano took notice of what Fleener gave the Colts offense last Sunday.

“(Fleener) played big (Sunday). He played physical,” Pagano said on his weekly radio show. “He made two of the finest catches that I’ve seen a tight end make. We had another tight end that we were defending on the other side of the field that was pretty damn good but Coby went up and made some great plays, great catches. It’s good to see his production coming through. He’s more than capable and now he’s just got to keep it there.”

With Dwayne Allen missing the first two days of practice this week, Fleener’s role on Sunday against the Jaguars could rival that of what we saw in 2013.

Fantasy Impact:

Dwayne Allen's injury was initially described as a high-ankle sprain, and although he has indicated that it's not serious, he has been unable to practice this week, so Fleener is a Sneaky Start in a solid matchup with the Jaguars. Fleener posted #13 TE numbers last season after Allen was lost for the year. We currently have him ranked at #4 in standard formats for Week 12.
