    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener posted three grabs for 42 yards on six targets in the Week 9 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Fleener has nine grabs for 120 yards over his past three games on 12 targets. He has struggled in his first season in New Orleans, and should only be trusted as a bye-week replacement at this point until he starts to show more consistency.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 5:54pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener had four catches for 36 yards in the Week 8 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He was targeted four times.

    Huddle Up: Fleener has been limited to six grabs for 80 yards on six targets over the past two games. That simply will not due for fantasy owners. He'll look to rebound in Week 9 against San Francisco, but it's probably best to go another way for fantasy purposes until Fleener becomes more involved in the offense again.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 8:35pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener had a pair of catches for 44 yards in the Week 7 game against the Kansas City Chiefs on just two targets.

    Huddle Up: Fleener has been rather erratic for his fantasy owners this season, posting solid yardage and a total in just two of his games, while disappearing in the other four outings. He has low-end TE1 ability, but he needs to be more consistent. He has another tough matchup in Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks, so you might want to go another way.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 5:23pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener managed six receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted seven times.

    Huddle Up: After a bit of a slow start in the Crescent City, Fleener has found the end zone in two of his past three games while totaling 202 yards on 16 grabs over the past three games. He has re-emerged as a TE1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 10/7/2016 9:20pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener's catch rate has climbed from 25 percent in the first two games to 62 percent in the last two games, and tight ends coach Dan Campbell said Fleener is starting to understand what QB Drew Brees is looking for.

    Huddle Up: Fleener has had one big game and three duds thus far, and he remains a boom-or-bust TE1 option heading into Week 5.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 9:47pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener posted seven receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 26. He was targeted 11 times, tied for most in the game.

    Huddle Up: Fleener went to New Orleans with high expectations from fantasy owners, but he fell on his face in the first two games. For those who gave up on him, there will be a mass waiver wire add in the upcoming week after this performance.

  • Posted: 9/17/2016 4:29pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener is expected to receive more snaps in Week 2 because of the injury to TE Josh Hill (ankle). Fleener may be asked to block more during the game.

    Huddle Up: Fleener was limited to six yards in Week 1 but should receive more targets this week against the New York Giants. Fleener could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/11/2016 7:27pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener did not get in on the track meet in Week 1 against the Oakland Raiders, posting just one reception for six yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Perhaps Fleener was just uncomfortable in a new offense, but he did not give fantasy owners a very good show in a 35-34 shootout loss where others had giant stat lines. He has TE1 ability in most fantasy formats, but if he struggles again in Week 2 at N.Y. Giants it isn't a bad idea to look for a replacement. Give him at least one more game, however.

  • Posted: 8/26/2016 7:16am ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener hasn't been reliable enough catching passes and isn't on the same page with QB Drew Brees on some routes, according to beat writer Larry Holder. TE Josh Hill has been more involved in the passing game in recent practices.

    Huddle Up: That breakout season for Fleener to thrust him into the fantasy spotlight is in question now. He has a lot of tools, and the offense has a history of making fantasy stars. Fleener will need to pick it up to rekindle some of the upside he had entering camp. He's a low-end TE1 for now, and Hill is a TE2 that could become a deep sleeper.

  • Posted: 8/1/2016 3:31pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener said he has been working on building a chemistry with QB Drew Brees during the early part of training camp. Brees said he believes Fleener could catch a lot of passes in 2016 because he will have favorable matchups.

    Huddle Up: Fleener averaged fewer than 50 catches (46.8) during his first four seasons in Indy, but that figures to change in a big way in the Big Easy in the Saints' TE-friendly offense. Fantasy GMs are banking on as much as Fleener currently is the fifth TE coming off the board in drafts.

  • Posted: 7/14/2016 4:52pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener could be the second option in the passing game behind WR Brandin Cooks.

    Huddle Up: A number of fantasy GMs are salivating over Fleener given the production in recent seasons of Saints tight ends, and we at The Huddle are on board ranking him No. 6 among tight ends. Definitely have him on your draft radar if you miss out on the top contingent of TEs -- i.e. Gronk, Greg Olsen, Jordan Reed, etc.

  • Posted: 5/31/2016 10:21am ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener will be used as a receiver first and will hopefully help in third-down and red-zone situations, according to head coach Sean Payton, much like the way Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham was used when he played for the Saints.

    Huddle Up: Fleener won't replace Jimmy Graham as an elite tight end, but he does give Drew Brees a big red zone target and has plenty of fantasy opportunity in his role in the Saints' offense.

  • Posted: 3/10/2016 8:52am ET

    Free-agent TE Coby Fleener (Colts) agreed to sign a five-year deal worth roughly $36 million with the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, March 9, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Fleener replaces Ben Watson, who left for Baltimore via free agency. He's not quite Jimmy Graham, but Fleener does have some pass-catching abilities that Drew Brees and the New Orleans offense could find useful. At minimum he belongs on the fantasy radar with the same upside many were attributing to Josh Hill at this time last year.

  • Posted: 2/16/2016 10:51am ET

    Indianapolis Colts TE Coby Fleener will likely require a multi-year deal worth around $4 million per season in order to stay with the Colts.

    Huddle Up: Seems steep for a tight end who's mostly split time with Dwayne Allen in Indianapolis. The Colts would probably like Fleener to return, but they shouldn't need to break the bank to bring him back.

  • Posted: 2/11/2016 8:05pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent Coby Fleener is expected to be retained by the Colts this offseason. Fleener should be the favorite to be re-signed ahead of fellow impending free-agent TE Dwayne Allen, in the opinion of Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star.

    Huddle Up: Fleener would appear to get the nod largely because of Allen's health concerns as he's missed a combined 21 games over the last three seasons.
