Need a defense in week 12? The Indianapolis Colts face the Jacksonville Jaguars at home.

Don’t over think it, I know they just got destroyed by the New England Patriots. However, the first time the Colts faced the Jags this season they managed four sacks, three interceptions (including a pick six), and a fumble recovery.

3. Coby Fleener, TE, Indianapolis Colts

Tight end Coby Fleener has consistently been on the fantasy football radar throughout 2014. Yet, there has been a lot of hesitation from owners due to his split playing time.

That all changes this week. Fleener’s fellow tight end, Dwayne Allen suffered a high ankle sprain, thus taking Fleener from a distant fantasy football thought to a top five waiver wire target in week 12.  

Last week against the Patriots, Fleener was one of the teams few bright spots. He caught all seven of his Andrew Luck targets for an impressive 144 yards.

We seen star wide receiver Calvin Johnson miss more than a month of action with the same injury in October. If Allen is going to be out anywhere near the same amount of time, it’s worth considering adding him to your line-up. Maybe even as your TE1.
