Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 10: Coby Fleener

Andy Lyons

The Colts tight end has had an inconsistent season. Can he have a big game Sunday? We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts tight end Coby Fleener hasn't been the big thing the team thought he might be when they drafted him in the second round two seasons ago. After injuries to tight end Dwayne Allen, wide receiver Reggie Wayne, and multiple running backs, Fleener was thought to be a new big piece of the offense. Sunday, he looks to deliver on that promise as the team takes on the St. Louis Rams.

Fleener has 299 receiving yards and three touchdowns through eight games this season, only going for more than 70 yards once. In two seasons, the only time Fleener has caught more than five passes came in his first career game.

Fantasy impact: After the injury to Allen, many thought Fleener's production would rise significantly. The same thought came about after injuries to Vick Ballard, Ahmad Bradshaw and Wayne. This week, it's being bandied about that the questionable health of Darrius Heyward-Bey will be the reason for Fleener's theoretical success. At this point, though, any fantasy owner that wants to rely on Fleener is doing so at his or her own risk; until he proves he can be a top-tier tight end, the fantasy world is running out of reasons to believe he has it in him.
