When the Saints released tight end Coby Fleener in May, head coach Sean Payton said that Fleener was still dealing with symptoms from the concussion that ended his 2017 season and nothing has changed over the last month.
Fleener spoke to Don Banks of The Athletic about where things stand and said that he’d still like to play during the 2018 season, but that the symptoms are “still there, unfortunately.”
The story went on to say there’s no timetable for that to change and that leaves Fleener, who has been diagnosed with five concussions over the course of his career, unable to say he’ll be back on the field with confidence.
NO TE Coby Fleener - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 11 vs. Washington
Coby Fleener was targeted just once in the Saints' Week 10 victory over the Bills. He dropped that lone target and wound up playing only 22% of New Orleans' offensive plays. Fleener also hasn't caught more than two passes since Week 2 and is not a fantasy option. Ranked as our No. 23 for Week 11, avoid him at all costs.
