TE Coby Fleener expects to be better in second season with the Saints

Friday, May 26, 2017, 10:13pm

The Advocate - [Full Article]

Signed to a five-year, $36 million contract last offseason, Coby Fleener was supposed to serve as another dynamic playmaker in an offense full of them. At times he was. Mostly, he was just solid, catching 50 passes for 631 yards with three touchdowns.

Could it have been better?

“I think it absolutely could have been better,” he said. “I would have loved it to be better.”

And he thinks it will. Instead of trying to conquer a new playbook and new verbiage, he’s instead relearning what he already knows and feels comfortable with his role. Fleener believes that should make a big difference heading into his second season with the team.

“I think anytime you’re trying to learn a new offense, trying to learn a language, trying to learn something of that nature, going through it under pressure, going through it for a year really helps,” he said.

Fantasy Impact:

Fleener was the #12 TE in standard formats and #15 in PPR, so he doesn't have to improve too much to get into the TE1 conversation. He's currently going in the 13th round of early PPR drafts after going in the 6th round last season. He looks like a post-hype sleeper.
