Allen doesn't have the elite foot speed or YAC potential.

Rotoworld analysis 2014:  

Quote

Allen has the skill set to be an all-around beast and a major asset in the passing game.

Gotta love it.

Seriously where's it coming from?

Is this all about Chudzi Udzi?

A no confidence vote on Fleener?

Allen, in his rookie year, with a rookie QB passing to him had 45 catches for 521 yards and 3 TDs.  I'm bullish on Allen this year.

If healthy the guy could put up a line such as:  65 catches, 700 yards, 7-8 TDs.  Not sure about you guys but I'd certainly take that.

Not a Chud fan as I saw a lot of him in Carolina, but Chud would be a bigger improvement over Pep Hamilton

Allen has real football skills, but this is fantasy football and it's hard to see Allen thriving in fantasy production when he plays in a real football system that has designs on being run first, has 2 pass catching TEs, has 3 or 4 WRs (depending on your opinion of Nicks and Rogers) with real WR skills, and wants to run more 3 and 4 WR sets. Fringe TE1 if everything clicks, perhaps, but I wouldn't build my fantasy team around Allen.

Surprised no one is talking about this guy as a late round TE breakout candidate. He was getting hyped up as a potential breakout last year by a bunch of analysts and now it's all quiet.

Looking at the colts WR corps I see the TD distribution as follows:

Reggie Wayne - 7 TDs
Ty Hilton - 6 TDs
Hakeem nicks -5 TDs
Coby fleener - 4 TDs

If luck throws for 35 touchdowns this year which most analysts expect him to, that leaves about 10-13 TDs to be distributed .. I could see dwayne Allen getting 7 of those given his size and that he should be on the field for every red zone snap due to his blocking ability. I could see him potentially putting an 850 yard 7 TD campaign this year.

Not to mention, rob chudzinski being hired by the colts as a special assistant. They hired chud for a reason, they are going to be a tight end heavy offense this year.

Look at these highlights from 2012 and then his 20 yard TD catch during the first game last year.. The guy is a beast.

He is great in the open field and has moves like a WR after he catches the ball.

I don't doubt that Dwayne Allen is talented, his usage is going to be annoying regardless.  Fleener seems to be the move TE, with Dwayne Allen relegated to the in-line role.  In almost every offense besides the Patriots, if there is a move TE and an in-line TE, the move TE usually sees the larger majority of the targets/receptions, because the in-line TE spends more snaps pass-blocking.

And that's why I refuse to become an "insider". What a joke. Allen won't even crack the top 10 2014 breakout list.

Not only that, but we have

Wayne
Hilton
Nicks

to deal with for target competition

which is already hampered by

PEP.

God I hate Pep.

I'm growing more and more skeptical of Robocop's potential despite the nickname and Sigmund Bloom endorsement.

It's too bad he couldn't stay healthy last year.

The guys that got targets last year, oh my.

Fleener, Heyward-Bey, T-Rich, Griff Whalen and La'Von Brazill racked up over 300 targets between the five of them

There has been rumbling about Fleener's inability to catch the ball.  I haven't looked into his drop rate but he does seem to drop a lot of catchable balls.  Unfortunately, I don't think Fleener is a great blocker.

I think Dwayne Allen might be one of the most underrated TEs in football, but as Robrain stated, the Coby Fleener experiment is still in full effect, and that hinders Allen. If I'm waiting on TE, I'd rather have a guy that's not competing for targets with another TE every week.

I believe so. Looked the role last night even with Fleener in there. The TD was kind of a fluke, but still has the size. Wayne is 35 and had a scare last night too. So, right now, many weapons at Luck's disposal, but barely a running game.

I just picked him up in one of my leagues because of Cameron's possible injury. He looks good out there and did some really good things against a good DEN Def so thats a positive. He also got lots of looks in the passing game. Fleener doesn't do anything with his catches, and it looks like Allen is by far the more explosive player of the two. T-Rich still can barely fall forward two yard and Bradshaw is better suited for swings and outside runs, so it looks like Luck is going to be slinging it A LOT this year. I could see 600 yards and 5+ TDs being a pretty real possibility. 850 yards like someone said is pushing it IMO but the TDs will be there. Fleener has oven mitts for hands it seems like and Luck will become more comfortable with Allen as his safety blanket.
