Scouting report

NE TE Dwayne Allen - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Chiefs

Dwayne Allen is shaping up to be a weekly touchdown or bust TE streaming candidate. Martellus Bennett may have been a top-10 tight end in this offense last year as the Patriots' No. 2 tight end, but much of that production came after Rob Gronkowski was lost for the season. Consider Dwayne Allen as nothing more than a handcuff to Gronk.

NE TE Dwayne Allen - 2017 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

The Patriots traded for Dwayne Allen this offseason, and he now enters a role vacated by Martellus Bennett, who finished as the TE10 in PPR leagues last season. In games where Rob Gronkowski didn't play 80 percent of snaps, Bennett was TE11 in PPR, and interestingly enough, in games where Gronk did play 80 percent of snaps, Bennett was even better, as TE6 in that span (Weeks 5-10). Dwayne Allen could have upside, even if Gronk is healthy.

Fantasy Downside

Allen has been injury prone himself, missing eight games in the last three seasons. Reports out of New England have also indicated Allen is not exactly off to a great start. Not to mention, the Patriots also added another big weapon on the outside in Brandin Cooks. All of this could submarine Allen's fantasy chances.

2017 Bottom Line

All things considered, Allen could turn into a weekly touchdown-or-bust option for fantasy lineups, but he has been one of the better red zone tight end options in his career. Since being drafted, Allen has the third-highest red zone TD rate among tight ends. The good news is his ADP makes him practically free in the 17th round.

IND TE Dwayne Allen - Week 17, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Jacksonville
The Colts are now splitting snaps between three tight ends, rendering none of them fantasy lineup considerations, including Week 17 at Jacksonville.

IND TE Dwayne Allen - Week 16, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Oakland
We just don't know which TE will be the most valuable for the Colts each week. Last week, it was even #3 TE Erik Swoope getting a score for the Colts. Allen should not be in your lineup in Week 16.

IND TE Dwayne Allen - Week 15, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Minnesota
With Donte Moncrief out, the Colts tight ends could be called upon more by Andrew Luck in the passing game, but the split between Allen and Jack Doyle renders both non-starters in Week 15. In Weeks 3-7 when Moncrief was out, Allen only post one week worthy of a starting spot. He's not a viable option with your season on the line.

IND TE Dwayne Allen - Week 14, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Houston
Dwayne Allen exploded last week with three touchdowns. It should be noted two were busted coverage from a Jets defense that looked completely disinterested. However, the third was Allen straight wrestling the ball away from a defender. Nine of Luck's 23 touchdowns have gone to TEs (39%), including what should have been a 10th last week but Jack Doyle fumbled just short of the pylon. Still, Allen is probably too risky for the fantasy postseason outside very deep standard leagues and DFS, as week-to-week, it's been hard to figure out which TE Luck will target in the red zone - Luck or Doyle.

IND TE Dwayne Allen - Week 13, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at New York Jets
The Colts use of two tight ends renders both Jack Doyle and Dwayne Allen unreliable for fantasy purposes. Allen should not be in your starting lineup for Week 13.
