Coby Fleener (TE, IND) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Matt Hartman - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in all leagues

OWNED IN: 51% of Fleaflicker leagues

ANALYSIS: Last week the Indianapolis Colts were hit with the injury bug by losing Dwayne Allen & Ahmad Bradshaw.  With the injury to Allen, Coby Fleener became the 1 man TE show and he exploded.  Fleener was efficient (7 targets, 7 catches) and productive 144 yards (21 yards/catch).  The early injury status report on Allen is he has a sprained ankle.  Currently Allen is projected as a game time decision and its likely that he won’t play this week.  If Allen does not play, Fleener will have another opportunity to produce at a high level.

This week Fleener will have a plus matchup versus the Jaguars who give up the 9th most points to TEs for PPR, and 11th most for standard leagues.  To give you a reference the Patriots were ranked 8th (PPR) & 7th (STD) to opposing TE’s so its a high  possibility that Fleener could have another 7 catch, 75+ yard game.  The key with Fleener is watching the status of Allen as his playing time impacts the value of Fleener.  In any case, I’d highly recommend targeting Fleener on waivers and starting him this week.
