Coby Fleener out for Sunday, boosting Dwayne Allen's fantasy stock another week

Thomas J. Russo-US PRESSWIRE

Coby Fleener has been ruled out for Sunday's game between the Colts and the Patriots with a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Coby Fleener will not play Sunday when the Indianapolis Colts take on the New England Patriots, interim head coach Bruce Arians announced Tuesday. Fleener has missed the last two weeks with a knee injury suffered in Week 8 against the Tennessee Titans.

With Fleener out, Dwayne Allen is expected to once again take on an expanded role within the Colts' offense. Allen has 12 receptions for 162 yards over his last three games.

Fantasy Impact: Allen will see a big boost in his fantasy prospects for one more week, with Fleener expected to return in Week 12 against the Buffalo Bills. Allen is a decent starting option if you are without your primary starter at tight end in your fantasy league this week. Just be forewarned that he caught just two passes for 31 yards last week coming off of two straight solid outings. Allen has also yet to catch a touchdown since Week 5.
