Colts 3rd-round TE Jelani Woods carries “potential to earn immediate snaps,” per beat writer Stephen Holder. The 6’7, 253-pounder arrives after Indy used a 2021 Round 4 pick on Kylen Granson, who garnered only 15 targets as a rookie. Veteran Jack Doyle retired over the winter, and the supersized Mo Alie-Cox re-signed on a 3-year deal. “The offense,” HC Frank Reich said, “wants to be tight end-centric in some ways. A lot of playmaking goes on in the middle of the field.” Woods, 23, is a long-shot for redraft relevance. But the Colts supply a fine landing spot for his dynasty value.

10:00pm EDT 4/29/22

The Colts selected TE Jelani Woods in the 3rd round of the NFL Draft. A 1-year producer at Virginia (44-598-8), Woods goes a towering 6’7, 259 pounds. Athletically, he tested off the charts with a Relative Athletic Score of 10.0 (out of 10.0). Converting to TE just a few years ago, Woods is a raw product, but he landed in a spot where he can work into Indy’s rotation slowly. The Colts used a mid-round pick on Kylen Granson last year, while they signed Mo-Alie-Cox to a 3-year, $18 million deal in March.

Stephen Holder of The Athletic writes that TE has been a “focus” of the Colts’ “pre-draft preparation.” Jack Doyle retired in March. Mo Alie-Cox returned on a 3-year deal last month, but he hasn’t played more than 55% of the snaps in a season (2021). Second-year man Kylen Granson brings a receiving profile but stands just 6’2 and caught only 11 passes as a rookie. Holder noted that Indy relied heavily on 2 TE sets last year, while OC Marcus Brady returns for another season. The Colts are currently slated for 7 picks in the 2022 draft, with the first selection on tap at 42nd overall.

The Colts have agreed to a 3-year, $18 million deal to keep TE Mo Alie-Cox around, according to multiple reports. Alie-Cox led Indianapolis in targets last season but ranked just 5th on the team with 45. His 24 catches trailed Jack Doyle, who has since retired. The new contract suggests upside for Alie-Cox in his age-29 season, but he'll still share the position with 2021 draft pick Kylen Granson. We'll see whether Indy adds any other significant TE.

The forecast for tonight's Colts-49ers game calls for a 100% chance of rain with winds of 20-30 mph. That's ugly -- and certainly enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We'd try to avoid both of these passing games outside of 49ers WR Deebo Samuel and Colts WR Michael Pittman. You should also stay away from both Ks.

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.

7:11pm EST 11/12/20

Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Titans. With TE Jack Doyle out, Alie-Cox should see increased snaps and targets vs. the #31 TE defense -- assuming that knee isn't a major problem.

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.

Colts TE Jack Doyle sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Ravens. It's the 2nd documented concussion of his career. We'll track Doyle's progress through the protocol this coming week. His absence against the Titans next week would open up extra snaps for TEs Trey Burton and Mo Alie-Cox.

11:11am EST 11/8/20

Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Ravens. He only got in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday. Alie-Cox shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups at less than 100%.

Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Ravens. He only got in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday. Alie-Cox shouldn’t be in fantasy lineups at less than 100%. His absence would make TE Trey Burton easier to trust.
