Coby Fleener fantasy outlook: Start him.

Fleener put up solid fantasy numbers last week despite seeing his lowest snap count of the season. That’s a good sign for the newly acquired TE. It shows that he’s making the most out of his time on the field. He made catches and ran well.

It’s obvious why he didn’t see the field: the Saints needed blockers against that Rams front seven. That won’t be so much the case this week.

But I’d still consider sitting him. Who knows if we’ll run such a TE-friendly passing game as we ran last week? Like I said before in this series, he’s getting better every week. And if he does turn out to be involved, he has all the tools to turn out a huge game. But his floor is just so low. That’s sort of the name of the game with TEs in fantasy, which is the only reason I can see starting him. He can put up big numbers. But he can just as easily, perhaps more so, put up a dud.
