Jack Doyle Fantasy Football News 2020

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 (groin) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him returning for this weekend's game against the Jets. Doyle's absence would make TE Mo Alie-Cox a legit Week 3 fantasy starter.

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.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (ankle/knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He now appears to be in real danger of missing this weekend's game against the Vikings. With TE Trey Burton on IR, Doyle's absence would leave Mo Alie-Cox as the Colts' top TE.

Colts TE Jack Doyle missed practice Wednesday. The team listed him with ankle and knee injuries. Doyle played 73% of the snaps in the opening loss to Jacksonville, with no other TE reaching 40%. And it was a neck issue that cost him camp time. We'll see if this situation challenges his Week 2 availability.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Monday that he's expecting TE Trey Burton to step into the role Eric Ebron played the past 2 seasons. "Trey is a big-time playmaking tight end," Reich said. "He’s an incredible route runner. He’s a very smart, instinctive player. I think he fits a big need in our offense. You know that spot in our offense gets a lot of attention ... that role gets highlighted schematically, in certain ways. I expect Trey, assuming he’s going to stay healthy, will have a very productive year.” Burton battled groin and calf injuries last year but posted a 54-569-6 line back in 2018. He also has experience with Riech after spending 2016 and 2017 with him in Philadelphia. Ebron averaged 6 targets per game over the last 2 seasons -- a 16-game pace of 96. We wouldn't bet on Burton seeing that much volume alongside Jack Doyle, but it's certainly possible that he re-emerges as a fantasy factor in 2020.

The Colts have signed TE Trey Burton to a 1-year deal after he was released by the Bears earlier this week. He'll reportedly make the veteran minimum this season. Burton missed 8 games with groin and calf injuries last year but posted a 54-569-6 line in 2018. He's also familiar with HC Frank Reich's offense after spending 2016 and 2017 with him in Philadelphia. Burton will battle with TE Jack Doyle for snaps and targets in Indy.

The Colts and TE Jack Doyle have agreed to a 3-year, $21 million extension that can reach $24 million with incentives. It's a significant investment and makes it unlikely that Indy brings back TE Eric Ebron, who will be a free agent this offseason. Doyle has been his usual steady self this year and is averaging a career-high 10.5 yards per catch. He'll have TE1 potential in 2020 depending on what else the Colts do at the position this offseason.

Colts TE Eric Ebron needs surgery on both of his ankles and will be placed on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Ebron is averaging 4.7 targets and 2.8 catches per game. A big chunk of that work now figures to go to TE Jack Doyle, who has a shot at top-12 production the rest of the way. TE Mo Alie-Cox should also see a bump in playing time. He's worth monitoring and perhaps adding now in deep fantasy leagues.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. He was expected to miss 3-4 weeks, which would have him back for Week 12 or 13. Zach Pascal gets another game as Indy’s #1 WR and is on the WR3 map with QB Jacoby Brissett back. TEs Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle will also continue to play expanded roles in the passing game.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) won't practice on Wednesday. HC Frank Reich won't yet rule Hilton out for this weekend's game against the Jaguars, but fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him. Marcus Johnson stepped in as Indy's #2 WR last week but still isn't a fantasy option. Hilton's absence should continue to mean increased roles for TEs Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle.

11:10am EDT 10/27/19

Colts TE Jack Doyle (groin) is active for today’s game against the Broncos. He popped up on the injury report on Friday and was listed as questionable, so there’s some added risk to using him in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Colts TE Jack Doyle (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Broncos. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice. We'll look for updates on Doyle and will get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. His absence would be a big boost for TE Eric Ebron, was was out-snapped 56 to 32 by Doyle last week.

9:08pm EDT 8/24/19

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Colts QB Andrew Luck has decided to retire. Luck has reportedly already talked to team management about his decision. Jacoby Brissett now takes over the starting gig. This appears to be a shocking move to everyone. Schefter reports that Luck feels "worn down." The QB switch lowers the ceiling for everyone in the Indy offense. The Colts finished 30th in points and 31st in scoring in 2017, with Luck sidelined (shoulder) and Brissett starting.

Here's a full breakdown of the fantasy impact of Luck's retirement.

Colts TEs Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle were on the field for the 1st day of training camp on Thursday. Both guys are coming off surgery -- groin for Ebron and hip for Doyle -- but are clearly on track for Week 1. We'll be watching this situation closely for clues on how snaps and targets will be divvied among Colts TEs. Doyle actually out-targeted Ebron 33 to 22 in their 6 games together last year.

Colts TE Jack Doyle got back to running routes at full speed this week, according to Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star. The TE hasn't yet been cleared for full practice, but the progress is good news for the hip he had repaired after the season. We'll check on Doyle's participation once training camp arrives.

Colts TE Jack Doyle might be ready to get back on the field later this month and is fully expected back by training camp, GM Chris Ballard said. Doyle was limited to just 6 games last season by hip and kidney injuries. He underwent what he called a “procedure" on the kidney and had surgery to fix the hip. He's been running and just recently began cutting again. “I feel good," he said. "Happy with the progress that I am making. Just slowly coming along, but it’s going in the right direction." Doyle saw 33 targets in his 6 games last year and ranked 8th among TEs in PPR points per game. He'll find more target competition with the offseason additions of Devin Funchess and rookie Parris Campbell, but Doyle could still bring spot-start value in 2019.
