Huddle Up: Fleener is coming off a disappointing 2017 season where he played only 11 games and finished with 295 yards and two touchdowns. He could receive some interest from other teams but will not be a great fantasy option. Benjamin Watson should take over the starting job with the Saints and can be a No. 2 tight end in deeper leagues.

Huddle Up: Josh Hill likely will take over the starting tight end job for the rest of the season. He has recorded only nine catches and 62 yards this season and should be avoided in all leagues.

Huddle Up: With Fleener out Josh Hill makes for a sneaky option in both daily and seasonal formats. He'll be dirt cheap from a DFS perspective and he'll most likely be available in most leagues if you're hurting at tight end.

Huddle Up: Fleener will have to pass his concussion tests before he is allowed to play, so his status for Week 13 is uncertain. He has been inconsistent over the last several weeks and is a risky option because of the injury. Owners may want to look for other options to use in their lineups.

Huddle Up: Fleener will need to pass the NFL's protocol to get back on the field, but the fact that he's had that many in his career is scary. Even so, Fleener hasn't been much of a fantasy factor even when he hasn't been ailing and cannot be counted on as a starter.

Huddle Up: It was the first time since Week 1 that Fleener has topped 50 yards, so don't expect another performance like this any time soon.

Huddle Up: The yardage total was Fleener's highest since Week 1 in Minnesota, although he hasn't scored in six consecutive games now. He remains more of a TE2 or bye-week replacement in deeper fantasy leagues at this point.

Huddle Up: Fleener has played well at times this season but has not reached the end zone since Week 2. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better option for their starting tight end spot.

Huddle Up: Fleener is clearly not an integral part of New Orleans' game plan on a week-to-week basis. He scored a touchdown in each of his first two games but has been invisible since then. It might be hard to drop him since he's technically the starting tight end in one of the NFL's best offenses, but you certainly can't start him.

Huddle Up: Fleener has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and has posted more than 35 yards in only one game. He could be a No. 2 tight end for owners but should not be a starting option most weeks.

Huddle Up: Fleener had found the end zone with a total of eight catches (and 10 targets) through his first two games, so this was a disappointment for fantasy owners. He'll look to get back on track in Week 4 against the Dolphins in London, but treat him as more of a TE2 in most fantasy formats.
