Dwayne Allen Fantasy News

Friday, November 4, 2016, 6:47pm

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 9. Allen may be able to make his return this week, though he’s not 100 percent. It would obviously hurt the playing time and likely targets of Mr. Jack Doyle, though Doyle should still play quite a bit since Allen is not fully healthy.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 8. Allen has a 3-5 week injury (sounds like a high-ankle sprain) and that he’s in the second week of his recovery. As long as Allen remains out, Jack Doyle remains a solid TE play.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 7. Jack Doyle looks like a premium streaming option. Doyle is already the #9 TE thanks to his two-touchdown Week 1 and the 4-53-1 (4) that he posted against the Texans, who usually smother opposing tight ends. With Allen sidelined against Houston, Doyle played 89% of the snaps, so he should see a ton of playing time against the Colts.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) week-to-week

Tuesday, October 18, 2016, 10:35am

Colts.com - [Full Article]

On Tuesday morning, the Colts signed veteran tight end Chase Coffman (37 career games, 3 starts).

The move to bring Coffman onboard comes after the Colts were awaiting MRI results for Dwayne Allen’s injured right ankle.

Allen suffered the injury on the fifth snap of Sunday’s loss to Houston. While engaging former No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney, Allen was rolled up on at the bottom of a pile.

NFL.com has reported that Allen is “week-to-week” and will likely miss some time.

Related players: Jack Doyle

Fantasy Impact:

Coffman will join Jack Doyle and Erik Swoope among Colts TEs. With Allen out, Doyle should see a much bigger role. He has 20 catches for 204 yards and three TDs.

Colts use more two-TE sets in Week 3

How would the Colts adjust their offensive personnel with Donte Moncrief out of the lineup?

Well, Sunday, the Colts leaned heavily on their reliable tight ends.

Jack Doyle (6 catches for 65 yards) and Dwayne Allen (3 catches for 35 yards) received ample playing time with the Colts opting to utilize more two tight end looks, versus three receiver sets.

Doyle continues to produce in 2016. The Indy native has caught 13-of-15 (86.7 percent) targets on the year, the top percentage in the NFL for tight ends with at least 11 targets.

“He is a dependable, dependable guy,” Chuck Pagano said of Doyle.

Related players: Phillip Dorsett, T.Y. Hilton

Fantasy Impact:

This was something we actually projected leading up to Week 3. WR Phillip Dorsett was/is a guy to pick up at the WR position with Moncrief out, but so is Doyle at TE, who seems like he could benefit the most. Pagano went on to call Doyle a trustworthy guy who finds a way to get open.

Titans acknowledge that TE Delanie Walker needs to be more involved

Wednesday, September 14, 2016, 10:34am

The Tennesseean - [Full Article]

In his Pro Bowl season of 2015, Delanie Walker averaged more than six receptions per game en route to a career-high total of 94. Things didn’t get off to nearly as good a start Sunday, however, as Walker was held to three catches for 42 yards. In fact, up until the final Titans’ drive of the day, Walker had just one reception for 6 yards.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said the Vikings did a good job defending Walker but acknowledged the team should have found a way to get Walker more involved early. Potential good news for the Titans is that Indianapolis tight ends Jack Doyle and Dwayne Allen combined for seven catches, 88 yards and three touchdowns against Detroit.

Fantasy Impact:

Walker saw five targets in Week 1 after averaging 8.9 targets per game last season. It's good news that the team understands that he needs to be more involved. He should produce better numbers in Week 2, given what the Lions yielded to Dwayne Allen and Jack Doyle.

Report: Colts re-sign TE Dwayne Allen to a four-year deal

Monday, March 7, 2016, 8:21pm

PFT - [Full Article]

The Colts had two tight ends poised to become free agents. They now have one. But the one who re-signed isn’t the one anyone expected to re-sign.

Per a league source, the Colts and tight end Dwayne Allen have worked out a four-year, $29.4 million deal. He’ll get $12 million in year one, $17 million total through two years, and $22 million through three years. The includes $16 million guaranteed; it’s unclear how much is fully guaranteed at signing.

Related players: Coby Fleener

Fantasy Impact:

This is a surprise since the Colts were rumored to be set on re-signing Coby Fleener, not Allen. If Fleener moves on, Allen will be a sleeper provided he's the primary receiving tight end in Indianapolis. He has only averaged 3.4 targets per game in 43 career games, but if Fleener is out of the way, that number may double.

Colts expected to favor Coby Fleener over Dwayne Allen in free agency

Friday, February 12, 2016, 10:40am

Indy Star - [Full Article]

If the Colts have to choose between their two young promising tight ends – Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen – Fleener appears the better fit, at least based on how the two have been used in recent seasons. Don’t expect Fleener to end up anywhere but Indianapolis in free agency.

Fantasy Impact:

If the Colts do re-sign Fleener while letting Allen walk, Fleener will be one of our favorite sleepers heading into the 2016 season. In the 22 games that Fleener has played over the last three seasons with Allen sidelined, he has averaged 4.1 catches for 54 yards and 0.45 TD. Those averages would have been good enough to finish 7th in standard scoring and 6th in PPR at his position. When only looking at seven such games in the last two seasons, Fleener has averaged 5.4 catches for 82 yards and 0.86 TD. It doesn't hurt that he hasn't missed a game in the last three years, either. We'll be keeping a close eye on the Colts' tight end situation this offseason.
