It’s hard to imagine Coby Fleener landing in a better spot than Indianapolis as he will join his former teammate Andrew Luck. While Fleener will be active in the Colts offense, it’s tough to say if he will land over 60 receptions.
In his final year with the Cardinal, Fleener totaled just 34 receptions but he did have a yard per catch average over 19 so we know he can make big plays.
Then again, Fleener was in a run heavy offense, where his team was regularly in command of the game, diminishing the need to put the football in the air. Clearly this was part of the reason for Fleener’s low reception total and Luck’s soft stat-line for the expectations he had coming into his final year.
The game scripts won’t remain the same at the pro level; while Stanford was one of the better teams in college, the Colts are one of the worst teams in the NFL.
Fellow rookie tight end Dwayne Allen should be a regular contributor in this offense as well, but at this time I have Fleener ranked as an early TE2 or low end TE1 for PPR leagues. I do expect him to get over 60 receptions, and his rookie campaign could be one of his better statistical years of his career, because Indianapolis will have to play from behind.
Still it is recommended you look to Fleener as more of a backup in PPR leagues, and I wouldn’t spend more than five dollars on him, in leagues with 12 teams or fewer.
