Schefter: Patriots trading for TE Dwayne Allen

Colts are trading TE Dwayne Allen to the Patriots, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

The Patriots probably looked at Martellus Bennett's asking price and decided instead to trade for Allen, who was disappointing in the first year of the $29 M deal he struck with the Colts last offseason. Allen will serve as the Patriots' second tight end, assuming Rob Gronkowski is healthy. Bennett finished as the #10 TE in that role, though he was actually more productive with Gronk in the lineup. For the Colts, this is big news for the newly re-signed Jack Doyle, who will graduate to starter's snaps. Given Andrew Luck's propensity to throw to his tight end in the red zone, Doyle will be an appealing sleeper in 2017 fantasy drafts. Erik Swoope should also see an increase in snaps.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15. Allen should play on Sunday and may see a an extra target or two with Donte Moncrief sidelined.

Colts TE Dwayne Allen (hip) did not practice Wednesday. Allen should be able to play, but if he can’t it would be a significant bump for Jack Doyle (since Donte Moncrief is also out).

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

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.
