Coby Fleener to miss 2 weeks with shoulder injury: Fantasy implications

Thomas J. Russo-US PRESSWIRE

Coby Fleener will miss two weeks for the Indianapolis Colts due to a shoulder injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Coby Fleener will miss two weeks due to a left shoulder injury, Phillip Wilson of the Indianapolis Star reports. The rookie tight end had to briefly leave Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans after suffering the injury, but was eventually able to return the game.

Fleener had just two receptions for 24 yards during the win, and now has 21 catches for 222 yards on the season. Dwayne Allen (17 receptions, 174 yards, 2 touchdowns) is expected to take on an expanded role with Fleener out.

Fantasy Impact: Allen is arguably the better receiving option, anyway. Fleener has seen more playing time as the better blocker of the two, but now that he's out there is a real opportunity for Allen to play a significant role in the Indianapolis Colts' offense over the next two weeks.

If you are desperate for a starting tight end, Allen could be worth a speculative waiver pickup. He had a season-high 56 yards receiving off four receptions with Fleener hobbled last week.
