Coby Fleener has a strong fantasy outing during Dwayne Allen's absence

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Coby Fleener caught four balls for 69 yards and a touchdown against Miami on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Coby Fleener took full advantage of tight end Dwayne Allen's absence against the Dolphins. Fleener caught four balls for 69 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's contest. His eight targets tied him for second alongside wide receiver Reggie Wayne

Fantasy impact: Fleener should end Week 2 as a top ten tight end in most formats, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's a top ten start moving forward. As impressive as he was, Fleener's production was largely due to Allen not being on the field. It remains to be seen if Luck will lean on Fleener consistently as the Stanford teammates have hardly been a consistent connection since being drafted together in 2012. Keep an eye on Fleener if he's available in your leagues, but there are likely better options for the time being.
