Coby Fleener has signed a five-year deal with the New Orleans Saints .
Fleener, who caught 54 passes for 491 yards and three TDs with the Colts in 2015, will now have a chance to work in coach Sean Payton's offense, with Drew Brees at quarterback, a scenario that should boost the tight end's fantasy prospects in 2016.
Coby Fleener caught all seven of his targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-24 victory over the Titans.
Fleener's 57-yard touchdown in the first quarter was the catalyst behind a Indianapolis Colts victory, but the team was eliminated from playoff contention after the Texans won their game against the Jaguars. His 88 receiving yards in this one were a season high, but he hadn't topped 50 yards in a game since Week 4 coming in.
Coby Fleener had two receptions for 13 yards and was targeted four times in Sunday's win over Miami.
Fleener's season is ending on a sour note as he has just four receptions in his last three games. With fourth-string quarterback Stephen Morris likely to start in Week 17, Fleener may not improve next week.
Coby Fleener had just one reception for 12 yards and was targeted three times in Sunday's loss to Houston.
Fleener was targeted in the end zone on a throw that maybe should have been caught, but otherwise wasn't much of a factor. Given Indy's overall struggles in the passing game, Fleener may not see much improvement the next two games unless Andrew Luck returns.
It's odd that Fleener was targeted just four times in a game where Indy fell behind early and attempted 43 passes. He remains one of the top targets in the Indy passing game, but the offense has de-emphasized tight ends, and the passing game has struggled the past two weeks without Andrew Luck (abdomen/kidney).
