Free-agent TE Dwayne Allen (Patriots) will sign with the Miami Dolphins, he told ESPN's Josina Anderson Saturday, March 9. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal is a two-year pact worth $7 million, per a source.
Huddle Up: Allen, 29, should have enough in the tank to matter in fantasy, but he's more of a blocker at this point in his career than a downfield threat. The Dolphins spent a second-round pick last year on tight end Mike Gesicki. The Penn State product should be the top option, although he was unable to get anything going in fantasy last year. Allen could chip away enough to matter given Miami's lackluster cast of offensive weapons. He is undraftable in all conventional formats.

New England Patriots TE Dwayne Allen isn't considered a lock to make the team, in the opinion of beat writer Mike Reiss.
Huddle Up: Allen had a 35-406-6 line last year, and he caught eight touchdowns in 29 receptions in 2014. With so many options to throw to in New England, Allen is a very risky TE2.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen was acquired by the New England Patriots Wednesday, March 8, according to a source. It is not known what the Colts will receive in the trade.
Huddle Up: Allen likely will replace Martellus Bennett in the team's offense and should have a solid role in the passing game. He will have to share targets with the other pass catchers on the team and probably should be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen managed just one catch for 13 yards on two targets in the Week 15 game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: After a three-touchdown effort in Week 13 at N.Y. Jets he has just one catch in two games since. He cannot be trusted from a fantasy perspective heading into Week 16.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen was targeted just two times and he was held without a catch in the Week 14 game against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Allen scored thrice last weekend, but it was a crash back to Earth for Allen and any fantasy owners taking a chance on him off the waiver wire.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen posted three touchdowns in the first half of the Week 13 game against the New York Jets Monday, Dec. 5. He is the first NFL player to post three touchdowns in the first half since New York Giants TE Larry Donnell in 2014.
Huddle Up: The Colts are carving up the Jets underneath, and Allen has benefited from the return of Andrew Luck from concussion. If he is still available on your waiver wire heading into Week 14, grab Allen now that he is completely healthy.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 9 game.
Huddle Up: Allen has missed the last several weeks because of his injury but probably will see some targets during the game. He probably will lose some playing time to Jack Doyle moving forward and should only be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) is expected to play in Week 9's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Allen was listed as questionable on the injury report despite taking part in all three practices during the week. He might not see many targets versus the Packers due to the emergence of TE Jack Doyle and the return of WR Donte Moncrief, so he should be avoided unless you are desperate for a bye-week replacement.

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 4, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Allen appears to be on track to play this week and should see a good amount of targets during the game. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues as a bye week replacement.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen (ankle) participated in practice Friday, Nov. 4, and is expected to be active for Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Owners of Jack Doyle may need to begin the search for another option at tight end, as Allen and Doyle generally perform at a TE2 level when both players are playing. With Green Bay defending tight end moderately well and Donte Moncrief back and T.Y. Hilton expected to go against the shorthanded Packers secondary, expect Andrew Luck to lean on his wideouts this weekend.
