|If not for injuries over the past two seasons, Allen may be one of the top five tight ends off the board in 2015. Still the better fantasy asset over Coby Fleener, Allen continues to be bothered by an ankle injury that plagued him throughout the 2014 campaign. He has missed time during OTAs in hopes that the extra rest will allow him to be healthy once the regular season nears. When in the lineup, he exploits the holes created by the speed on the outside and can split the field up the middle. The Colts love to line up with two tight ends, so Allen’s health is certainly worth keeping an eye on as the preseason gets underway. Fantasy owners should still consider him the team’s fantasy option at the moment, but Fleener isn’t far behind. Fleener led all Colts tight ends with 92 targets and eight touchdowns a year ago but isn’t likely to see as many opportunities if Allen is at full strength. Nonetheless, Fleener will see plenty of time in two-tight-end formations and near the goal line for red zone opportunities but may not rack up the yardage like other elite fantasy tight ends.

FFToday's Take: Allen's absence creates a nice situation for Coby Fleener who has a grand total of 1 catch for 5 yards after two games. Fleener and the rest of the Colts passing game should get a boost facing the Titans this week.
