Coby Fleener left the Indianapolis Colts in free agency to join the New Orleans Saints, so it’s up to 26-year old Dwayne Allen to step up in 2016. Allen played in 13 games (12 starts) for the Colts last year and he caught 16 passes for 109 yards (6.8 avg) with 1 TD grab. Allen has now played in 43 games (42 starts) in his first four years with the Colts and he has caught 91 passes for 1,045 yards (11.5 avg) with 13 TD grabs. Allen has also carried the ball 4 times for 6 yards (1.5 ypc) so far in his NFL career. Allen has the potential to be one of the better pass catching TEs in the NFL…….but it’s up to him to step up his game in 2016!
26-year old Jack Doyle is also going to have to step up his game in 2016. He played in 16 games (2 starts) for the Colts last year and he caught 12 passes for 72 yards (6.0 avg) with 1 TD grab. Doyle has now played in 47 games (7 starts) in his first three years in the NFL and he has caught 35 passes for 209 yards (6.0 avg) with 3 TD grabs.
PROJECTED GRADE FOR THE COLTS’ TEs IN 2016: B-
