With Coby Fleener already signed by the New Orleans Saints during the free agency period, the tight end will definitely help the Saints to play with an improved passing game. Many Saints fans have been rejoicing over the inclusion of Fleener on their roster, along with fantasy football fans. Fantasy fans will have the opportunity to use Fleener to catch passes from one of the most admired quarterbacks in the league. The player could follow in the footsteps of Jimmy Graham, the former fantasy stud. The NFL odds for the Saints to make the playoffs improved as soon as the deal with Fleener became public, and they can reach the playoffs if they remain healthy.

All fantasy football players should consider drafting Fleener as one of their best players on draft day he is reportedly one of the favorite targets for Drew Brees. Various reports indicated Brees looked Fleener’s way during minicamps more than any other receiver on the roster. Fleener ended with one more target than Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.

The New Orleans Saints offense was stronger than their defense last season, which certain people might show some skepticism with the statistics. Even with their pitiable defense, they did not emerge as the best, as clearly indicated by their results that could haunt them before the season begins. However, you have to consider the fact that Fleener will not play at a similar level as Graham because the latter shows profound athleticism than Fleener. Even with his meager athletic nature, the tight end can still produce high levels of play because Drew Brees and Sean Payton are fond of heavily using his position to execute their passing game.

After the Saints faced off last season against the AFC South, Brees admitted that he has been watching several films on Fleener. As stated by the quarterback, Fleener’s ability separate from his opponents is very impressive, and his hands look as if he could catch the ball from any angle. Fleener and Brees still have a young relationship in the NFL, but the rapport between them will match perfectly by the time the season begins. According to Brees, the greatest thing about having a 6’5” or 6’6” player is that he does not feel worried about the players covering him during play because of his advantageous size over other defenders.

Furthermore, Payton expressed to reporters about Fleener’s quick pace, which is an ability people rarely give him credit for. The coach also referred to the new tight end as an elite route runner who has already familiarized himself with the current NFL system. Even with his route running abilities, Fleener’s speed will be significant for the Saints because Payton said he would extensively use him on the vertical ends.

According to Payton, he is confident that Fleener will experience momentous times this season due to the achievements that their tight ends have had in their offense. Even though Fleener is yet to have over 92 targets in a single year, with Brees in the picture, he will get more targets. As such, Fleener could end the season on a high, as one of the NFL’s leading tight ends this season. Therefore, I advise you to draft the player to your fantasy team immediately.
