Colts TE Jack Doyle announced his retirement on Monday. The 31-year-old turned in top-14 fantasy seasons in 2016 and 2017 but hasn't been much of a factor since. With TE Mo Alie-Cox set to hit the free-agent market, 2021 4th-rounder Kylen Granson is currently atop the Colts' TE depth chart. We'll see what else the teams adds at the position, but Granson is an intriguing late-round flier in fantasy drafts right now.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee, ankle) is active for today’s game vs. the Raiders. He’s an unexciting fantasy play.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee, ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Raiders. He put in a full practice on Friday, so he should play. Doyle, of course, is not a legitimate fantasy option.

11:37am EST 12/5/21

Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Texans. He was a full participant in Friday’s practice, so the knee shouldn’t be a major issue. Doyle has some deep-league streaming appeal against Houston’s 30th-ranked TE defense.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Texans. He was a full participant in Friday's practice, so Doyle should play. He’s seen 17 targets over the past 3 weeks, putting him on the desperation radar against Houston’s 30th-ranked TE defense.

11:32am EDT 10/3/21

Colts TE Jack Doyle (back) is active for today’s game vs. the Dolphins. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after missing the previous 2 days. Doyle at less than 100% should be nowhere near fantasy lineups.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Dolphins. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after missing the previous 2 days. Doyle at less than 100% should be nowhere near fantasy lineups. Mo Alie-Cox would step in as Indianapolis' lead TE on Sunday if Doyle can't play.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (back) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He appears to be in real danger of missing this weekend's game vs. Miami. Doyle's absence would leave Mo Alie-Cox as Indianapolis' top TE.

Colts TE Jack Doyle didn't practice on Wednesday and is on the injury report with a back. The veteran has gotten some practices off early this season, but this is the 1st time he's been listed with an injury. We'll keep an eye on his status over the next few days. If Doyle can't play vs. the Dolphins this weekend, TE Mo Alie-Cox would be a low-level spot-start option.

Colts TE Kylen Granson got work with the 1st-team offense in Wednesday's training-camp practice. In fact, he caught a team-high 3 passes from QB Carson Wentz. "Granson may be more involved than I initially thought," Sports Illustrated's Jake Arthur writes. "He was very much in the mix throughout practice and is the clearest choice for the Colts' athletic 'Y' tight end." It's rare for a TE to make a fantasy impact as a rookie. But Granson might be an exception. The Colts absolutely love him, HC Frank Reich's offense tends to target the TE at an above-average rate, and TEs Mo Alie-Cox and Jack Doyle aren't exactly stiff competition. Keep an eye on Granson over the next month.

Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star believes 4th-round TE Kylen Granson could quickly impact the Colts offense. Beat writers can get caught up in hype at times, but Erickson's article provides some interesting quotes from Colts decision makers. "When you watch the tape, you see that he has explosive speed," HC Frank Reich said of Granson. "He has quickness, foot and body quickness. He's also dynamic with the football in his hand. That can be a great element for our offense." Assistant director of college scouting Matt Terpening added: "He's a total mismatch tight end. This kid has big-time sped, he can get down the seam. He makes really big plays. He's got excellent hands, and he's got route instincts and route feel." Granson will be worth watching through the offseason and summer. Indy has elected not to re-sign Trey Burton so far, leaving Jack Doyle (23 catches in 2020) and Mo Alie-Cox (31) atop the TE depth chart.

The Colts selected SMU TE Kylen Granson in the 4th round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Granson, a Senior Bowl participant, stands just over 6’1 and 241 pounds. A strong athlete, he played WR for 2 seasons at Rice but left the program due to a coaching change. He spent the past 2 seasons at SMU, racking up 78-1,267-14 in 23 games. Indy’s current TE depth looks thin with Mo Alie-Cox and Jack Doyle, but Granson profiles more as a part-timer/H-back.

The Colts have slapped TE Mo Alie-Cox with a 2nd-round restricted free-agent tender. It's a relatively aggressive move and makes it highly unlikely that Alie-Cox signs elsewhere this offseason. The former college basketball player has taken a while to get going in the NFL but is coming off a career-best 31-394-2 line this past year. He ranked 4th in yards per route run among 43 TEs with 30+ targets. With Trey Burton a free agent, it might be just Alie-Cox and Jack Doyle vying for TE targets in Indianapolis this season.

2:11pm EST 11/22/20

Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Packers. He’s not a recommended Week 11 fantasy play, but his return puts a dent in TEs Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox's target projections.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Packers. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, though, so he's on track to be cleared in time for that one. Doyle's return puts a dent in TEs Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox's target projections.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) returned to a full practice on Thursday. That puts him on track to play against the Packers this weekend, turning the Colts back into a 3-TE committee alongside Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (concussion) is out for Thursday night's game against the Titans. That turns this from a 3-man to 2-man TE committee. TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 10 but should play after getting in a full practice on Wednesday. He's a viable spot starter vs. Tennessee's 31st-ranked TE defense, but TE Trey Burton is the better fantasy play.
