Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 12
Although Carson Wentz had sporadic success throwing to his WRs, Doyle was easily the most productive pass catcher against the Bucs. He mostly had his success taking advantage up the seam while the Tampa Bay safeties were largely concerned with doubling Michael Pittman and keeping the WRs from getting over the top. The consistent success Doyle had led to him being 2nd on the team with 7 targets. And for the 5th game in a row, Doyle mostly pushed teammate Mo Alie-Cox to the side in the TE competition.

The top TE for the Colts can change at a moment’s notice, as Alie-Cox was the guy earlier in the year. But for now, it’s all about Doyle. He’s been targeted at least 5 times in 3 straight while scoring in 3 of his last 5. However, this was the 1st time he’s posted more than 30 yards in a game since Week 2, so unless he scores, he has significant downside. Aside from excellent matchups next week against the Texans and in Week 17 against the Raiders, he has a Week 14 bye and then faces the top 2 defenses against TEs (NE & Arizona) in Weeks 15 and 16.
Week 6
The Colts currently have a full 3-man rotation at TE. Mo Alie-Cox has clearly emerged as the best pass-game option, but he’s still only a part time player. In Week 6, Jack Doyle (9 routes), Mo Alie-Cox (9) and Kylen Granson (3) all saw some work. These routes for all three TEs were significantly less than Michael Pittman (22). However, injuries to Parris Campbell and T.Y. Hilton might produce more 2-TE sets.

In week 2 with both Hilton and Campbell out, Jack Doyle ran 33 routes vs. 42 for Pittman and had a nice day: 5 catches for 64 yards. Of course, we’ll all be guessing at the target distribution this week.
Week 3
A week after drawing 8 targets in the loss to the Rams, Doyle garnered just 2 in Sunday’s loss to the Titans. He played ahead of Mo Alie-Cox again, though the gap wasn’t nearly as wide.

Doyle played 49 snaps to Alie-Cox’s 27 vs. L.A., including a 34-13 lead in routes. At Tennessee, the splits were 35-28 and 23-16. Kylen Granson also saw his playing time tick up to a season-high 12 total snaps and 6 routes.

There’s room for Doyle to pop up or a starter week here or there, but he has yet to offer us anything to believe in. Don’t go out of your way to roster him.
Week 2
A vintage 2017 Jack Doyle performance!

The lumbering TE hauled in 5 of 8 targets for 64 yards in the loss to the Rams. All 3 of those marks ranked 2nd on the team behind only WR Michael Pittman. Doyle also ran a pass route on 76% of the Colts’ pass plays.

Those are all encouraging numbers. But they follow a Week 1 that saw Doyle post a 3-21 line on 4 targets and a 50% route rate. We’ll need to see Week 2-level usage at least 1 more time before considering Doyle a fantasy option.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Doyle mustered just 23 catches for 251 yards and 3 TDs in 14 games last year, missing 2 with a concussion.
  • His 17.9 yards per game was a 5-year low.
  • His best game of the season actually came in the playoff loss to the Bills: 7 catches on 9 targets for 70 yards and a score.
  • Among 44 TEs who saw 30+ targets last year, Doyle ranked 18th in yards per target and 29th in yards per route run. Pro Football Focus graded him 34th in receiving.
  • TE Mo Alie-Cox easily beat Doyle in all 3 metrics, ranking 2nd, 4th and 9th. The Colts re-signed Alie-Cox on a 2nd-round restricted free-agent tender this offseason.
  • The team did not re-sign TE Trey Burton, who led Colts TEs and ranked 5th on the team with 47 targets last year.
  • Indianapolis added rookie TE Kylen Granson, who they seem super excited about. But we rarely see TEs make year-1 impacts -- especially 4th round TEs out of Southern Methodist.
  • The WR corps will be similar to last year. Michael Pittman is back for his 2nd season, and the Colts re-signed T.Y. Hilton to a 1-year, $8 million deal. The Colts will hope to get a healthier season from WR Parris Campbell, who made it through just 1 healthy game last year.
  • The big change comes at QB, where Carson Wentz replaces Philip Rivers. That’ll be an upgrade if we get 2017-2019 Wentz; a downgrade if it’s 2020 Wentz.
  • In 3 seasons under HC Frank Reich, Colts TEs have accounted for 25.8%, 26.3% and 21.6% of the team’s targets. League-wide average over that span is 19.9%.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Doyle turned 31 in May and is coming off an ugly 2020 season, getting out-produced by both Mo Alie-Cox and Trey Burton. Alie-Cox is back, but the Colts let Burton walk this offseason. So there’s some additional opportunity for Doyle in this TE-friendly offense.

He’s worth monitoring this summer, but we’re not optimistic about a big bounce-back season.

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 (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.
