The Saints big offseason addition has been the big disappointment. Throughout the first two games, Fleener has a total of 3 receptions and 35 yards. The bad thing is. He has been targeted 12 times. That it not what Sean Payton hoped for when they signed Fleener to a big contract.
Despite the slow start, Fleener still has time to turn it all around and the game against Atlanta should be the perfect place to start.
Sean Payton and Drew Brees need a tight end to run their system. They don’t need him to do much, but the guy has to catch the ball when it is thrown to him. Ben Watson showed how to do it last season and now Fleener has to do the same.
