Coby Fleener fantasy outlook: Sit him.

The Cardinals are the best team in the league against tight ends. That should tell you all you need to know about this matchup.

I’ll be honest, my gut somehow tells me that Fleener will have a big day. But that’s really all I have to go on, and I can’t in good conscience tell you to start him based on my gut.

Until he can catch the ball consistently, he’s in the dog house.

With Brees struggling to put up numbers, there’s no reason to believe Fleener should have any serious opportunities. Yes, he’s the only reliable TE on the roster. But is he that reliable?
