WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

The Dolphins reached an injury settlement with Dwayne Allen.

Allen was a good locker room guy for Miami, but he's headed elsewhere after spending the spring and summer with them. The veteran tight end could draw interest from his former Patriots squad.

The Dolphins have activated Dwayne Allen off the PUP list.

Allen is a great locker-room presence that was probably helping out even without being on the practice field, but it'll be good for Miami to get him out there during practice now. The veteran tight end is a better real-life contributor than fantasy asset for 2019.

The Dolphins have placed Dwayne Allen on the PUP list.

Allen isn't cleared to practice yet, but he can be taken off the PUP at any time. The veteran tight end is a great presence for a franchise looking to build something with new head coach Brian Flores, who was with Allen in New England.

Dwayne Allen is signing with the Dolphins, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Allen visited Miami yesterday, and the two sides were able to quickly come to an agreement. New Dolphins head coach Brian Flores and offensive coordinator Chad O'Shea saw Allen every day in New England, so there's comfortability between the two sides. The Dolphins have a crowded tight end group which includes 2018 second-round pick Mike Gesicki, 2018 fourth-round pick Durham Smythe, and Nick O'Leary, but Allen figures to primarily help as a run blocker for a team that'll want to be physical under a defensive head coach.

The Patriots have informed tight end Dwayne Allen that they are releasing him, according to Adam Schefter.

Schefter says that the team has interest in bringing the veteran back for less money, but he will be free to find a new home if he chooses. Allen has been solid depth behind Rob Gronkowski over the past two years, but mostly as a blocking option.

Dwayne Allen (knee) is expected to miss a few weeks, according to NFL Network's Mike Giardi.

Giardi says Allen doesn't need surgery, which is good to hear, but it sounds like he's going to miss at least one or two games. Allen is mostly contributing as a blocker for the Patriots, so he's been off the fantasy radar even with Rob Gronkowski out of the lineup. Hopefully we see Allen back on the field this season, though.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen catches ten-yard pass in Week 10 loss.

It was his only reception of the game. Allen isn't a recommended fantasy option.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen catches one pass for 21 yards in Week 9.

Allen got free for a reception in the flat that he took for 21 yards. It was Allen's second reception of the season, so he's not a recommended fantasy option even if Rob Gronkowski (ankle/back) misses more time. Allen is a very good blocker for the Patriots in real life, though.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen catches one pass in Week 4 win.

It went for negative-four yards. Allen isn't a fantasy option, particularly with Rob Gronkowski healthy.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen caught two passes for 26 yards in Sunday's win over Buffalo.

Allen has been more involved as a receiver recently, but it won't lead to much fantasy value behind Gronk. Keep him on the waiver wire.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen caught a 10-yard pass in Sunday's win over Pittsburgh.

It was his only reception of the game, but it went for a first down. Allen isn't a fantasy option with Rob Gronkowski healthy.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen catches two passes in Week 14.

Allen gained ten yards on his two receptions, as he basically worked as a flat outlet for Tom Brady on the routes he ran. He was targeted five times in the game, but the offense couldn't get much going overall in the game. Rob Gronkowski will be back from his suspension next week, so it'd be extremely risky to play Allen in fantasy lineups.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen catches one pass in Week 13 win.

It went for three yards, but Allen could have an every-down role in Week 14 if Rob Gronkowski is suspended. If so, Allen would be a low-end TE1 in a good matchup against Miami, but he was held without a reception earlier in the season when Gronk was out.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen caught two passes for 24 yards in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

Allen has actually gotten more involved as a receiver since Martellus Bennett rejoined the team, and it's clear he will continue to have a role in the offense. Still, he's not a fantasy option heading into a matchup with Miami.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen scores first touchdown as a Patriot in win over Denver.

Allen, by all accounts, has been a great teammate in New England, as he hasn't caught a pass all year and continues to do his job as a blocker in both the run and pass game. So it was good to see him make a nice catch at the front of the end zone on a pinpoint pass for 11 yards. With just one catch on the year, Allen obviously is not a recommended fantasy option—but he's still one of the 53 players contributing to the Super Bowl-contending Patriots in real life.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen was not targeted in Week 5.

Even with Rob Gronkowski out, Allen was not featured as a receiver against the Bucs. He was used mainly as a blocker, as Tom Brady looked to his wide receivers more with Gronk out. Allen is a real-life contributor for New England, but he's not a recommended fantasy option even if Gronkowski is out.

Dwayne Allen trade to Patriots becomes official.

They're definitely going to lose Martellus Bennett, but the Pats will keep the two tight end approach going with Allen. He seems like a really good fit for the team, as he can excel at both run blocking and receiving. Allen has the potential for double-digit touchdowns in the Patriots offense. He can be drafted as a back-end TE1 in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

The Patriots are trading for tight end Dwayne Allen, according to multiple reports.

This isn't that shocking after the Colts signed Jack Doyle yesterday. This trade cannot become official until tomorrow when the new league year begins, but it looks like Allen is headed to New England. Allen is a very balanced tight end—can both block and catch well. This slams the door shut on any chance of Martellus Bennett returning to the Patriots.

UPDATE: The trade, which cannot be official until tomorrow at 4:00 PM ET, will be Dwayne Allen and a sixth round pick to the Patriots for a fourth round pick, according to Adam Schefter.

Dwayne Allen catches touchdown in season finale for Colts.

Allen had three receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown in the game. He ends his year with 35 receptions for 406 yards and six touchdowns. He has high touchdown upside, but is a low floor fantasy pick in 2017 drafts.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen catches three passes for 31 yards against the Raiders.

Allen is reliant on touchdowns for big fantasy production, and he is a risky fantasy play in Week 17.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen caught only one pass for 13 yards in Week 15.

He has only one catch in his last two games, and is a risky tight end option for next week against the Raiders.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Allen held without a catch in loss.

After going off for three scores in Week 13, Dwayne Allen did not even make the box score in Week 14. We warned about the matchup, so hopefully you benched Allen. He'll be a touchdown-dependent TE1 for Week 15.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Efficient: Allen catches three touchdowns on four targets.

All the scores came in the first half, and Allen finished with four catches for 72 yards and three touchdowns. On the first two touchdowns, the Jets basically decided not to cover Allen. On the third, Allen made a nice catch in the end zone on a perfect throw by Andrew Luck. Don't expect another game like this over the final four weeks, but Allen can be in lineups as a back-end TE1 the rest of the way.

Dwayne Allen | Free Agent TE

Dwayne Allen caught five passes for 49 yards the Colts' loss to the Steelers.

Allen was used over the middle of the field throughout the night by Scott Tolzien. He is probably the best option on his team at tight end for fantasy purposes. Allen will be a back-end TE1 for Week 13.
