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.
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 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.
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.
Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups, but his return adds some risk to Trey Burton and Jack Doyle’s profiles.
Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Lions. He can’t be trusted in Week 8 fantasy lineups — but his return would add some downside to TEs Trey Burton and Jack Doyle.
Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Bengals. Alie-Cox has run only 18 pass routes and totaled 3 targets over the past 2 weeks, so this is just a slight bump for TEs Trey Burton and Jack Doyle.
Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) is active for today’s game against the Jets. It's unclear how snaps and targets will be divvied between Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox, so you’re best off avoiding the situation in Week 3 fantasy lineups.
Colts TE Jack Doyle (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. HC Frank Reich said Friday, though, that Doyle is "ready to roll." TE Mo Alie-Cox went off for 111 yards in Doyle's absence last week. It's unclear how snaps and targets will be divvied between Doyle and Alie-Cox this Sunday, making it a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.
Colts TE Jack Doyle (ankle/knee) missed practice all week and has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. HC Frank Reich suggested Friday that Doyle might miss multiple games. With TE Trey Burton (calf) on IR for at least the next 2 weeks, Indianapolis is down to TE Mo Alie-Cox. He’d be a flier in Week 2 fantasy lineups.
