It could be a bit concerning to many that Fleener has already racked up two concussions in his NFL career, but when you consider how quickly he was cleared by the doctors, it should not be a cause for concern.
Fleener is going to be a big part of the team’s offense in 2013 with their two-tight end sets.
If you are a fantasy league player, Fleener is certainly a player that you will want to keep your eye on.
