Jack Doyle caught 2-of-5 targets for 16 yards Week 3 against the Browns.
Doyle also lost a fumble and dropped a pair of passes. It was a huge let down in a spot facing a Cleveland defense that had allowed the most receptions and fantasy points to tight ends coming into the game. Doyle will be a clear sit in Week 4 as the Colts visit Seattle. Sep 24 - 4:58 PM

Jack Doyle caught 8-of-8 targets for 79 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

Doyle always brings his hard hat, and he is one of the most efficient possession tight ends in the league. He led all NFL tight ends in catch rate last season, then emerged as Jacoby Brissett's favorite target on Sunday. Still, the sorry state of the Colts' offense will limit Doyle's upside, especially in the scoring department. He'll be a high-end TE2 in Week 3 against Cleveland.
Sep 17 - 4:49 PM

Jack Doyle secured two-of-three targets for 41 yards Sunday in the Colts’ Week 1 loss to the Rams.

He wasn't targeted in the second half and never had much of a chance to succeed with Scott Tolzien torpedoing the Colts' offense. In theory, Doyle should be a good check-down option for whatever overmatched quarterback the Colts plan to use in place of Andrew Luck (Jacoby Brissett could be up next), but that definitely didn't materialize on Sunday. Doyle will be a tough sell as a TE1 next week at home against the Cardinals.
Sep 10 - 8:24 PM

Jack Doyle snagged 1-of-3 targets for nine yards Saturday in the Colts’ third preseason game.

He caught a check-down on third-and-long in the second quarter but that was his lone contribution. Doyle hasn’t moved the needle much this preseason (five catches for 25 yards) with Scott Tolzien and others under center. There’s opportunity for Doyle to build on last year’s breakout season now that Dwayne Allen has moved on, but only if Andrew Luck can get healthy.
Aug 26 - 10:50 PM

Jack Doyle secured one-of-two targets for four yards Sunday in the Colts’ preseason loss to the Lions.

Doyle played just 11 snaps, drawing both of his targets from Scott Tolzien on the Colts’ opening drive. He was also flagged for offensive pass interference, though the Lions declined it because the pass was incomplete. Doyle carries sleeper appeal, but as with all Colts’ pass-catchers, his productivity hinges greatly on the health of Andrew Luck, who has been slow to recover from offseason shoulder surgery.
Aug 13 - 4:56 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Jack Doyle has earned Andrew Luck's trust.

Doyle led all NFL tight ends in catch rate (78.7%) last season and ranked fifth in red-zone receptions (9). "He's a reliable, reliable guy," Pagano said. "The quarterback has a ton of faith and trust in that guy. He's always where he's supposed to be, and that makes a huge difference." GM Chris Ballard said the Colts signed Doyle to a three-year, $19 million deal with half of it guaranteed because Doyle "stood for everything we want to stand for." Doyle offers touchdown upside in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.
May 31 - 11:20 PM

Colts re-signed TE Jack Doyle to a three-year, $19 million contract with $9.5 million guaranteed.

Another $2 million is possible through incentives. A onetime fantasy punch line, Doyle emerged as the Colts' No. 1 tight end in the absence of Coby Fleener, out-playing Dwayne Allen in 2016. Doyle posted a 59/584/5 line to Allen's 35/406/6, and even earned better blocking grades from Pro Football Focus. Doyle's yardage and catches were both more than Allen has ever posted in a season. The Colts could create $2.937 million in cap space by cutting Allen. That would make Doyle a fantasy TE1. As of now, he's a matchup-dependent TE2.
Mar 7 - 7:30 PM

The Indianapolis Star suggests free agent Jack Doyle could command $7 million per year when he hits the open market.

The Star also makes it clear Doyle isn't interested in a hometown discount. The Colts would be smart to re-sign Doyle and cut Dwayne Allen, but ESPN's Adam Schefter previously reported Doyle will be shopping his wares. Tight end-needy teams where Doyle would make sense include the Giants, Jets, and Bears.
Mar 7 - 12:31 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Colts have been attempting to re-sign free agent TE Jack Doyle, but that he's expected to reach the open market.

The sides have been talking over the past week. Going on 27, Doyle was 11th in tight end receptions last season. He's Rotoworld's No. 2 free agent tight end, behind only Martellus Bennett. That says more about the expected market than Doyle.
Feb 28 - 3:48 PM

The Indianapolis Star expects Jack Doyle to test free agency.

Doyle set career highs with a 59/584/5 line last year. The Colts want to keep him, but he’s expendable with Erik Swoope emerging and Dwayne Allen signed through 2019. Doyle shouldn't struggle for interest in a shallow tight end market.
Feb 11 - 5:11 PM

Colts GM Ryan Grigson said he "definitely" wants to re-sign impending free agent TE Jack Doyle.

This, of course, assumes Grigson will still be the general manager, but it looks like he is safe at this point. Doyle had a breakout 2016, hauling in 59 passes for 584 yards and five touchdowns. All three numbers eclipsed his career totals entering the year. Doyle is not the type of dynamic receiving threat which commands big dollars on the open market, but he should be looking for more than the three-year, $13-million deal Brent Celek landed last January.
Jan 21 - 10:01 AM

Jack Doyle caught 2-of-5 targets for 10 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

That closes the books on an out-of-nowhere breakout campaign for the fifth-year UDFA. Each of Doyle's 59 catches, 584 yards and five touchdowns were new career highs by significant margins. Doyle soundly out-played and produced a much more hyped Dwayne Allen. Looking like one of Andrew Luck's favorite targets, the soon-to-be 27-year-old Doyle has some TE2/3 appeal in Dynasty leagues.
Jan 1 - 6:34 PM

Jack Doyle caught 5-of-7 targets for 46 yards in Week 16 against the Raiders.

Doyle saw the most targets behind T.Y. Hilton (9). He didn't have any notable plays despite the Colts trailing the entire game. Even if Donte Moncrief (shoulder) misses time, Doyle will remain a low-end TE2.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 08:09:00 PM

Jack Doyle caught 4-of-4 targets for 32 yards in the Colts' Week 15 win over the Vikings.

The Colts went heavy on two-tight end sets and proceeded to ram the ball down the Vikings' throat. Doyle made a handful of chain-moving gains, but the Colts rested starters midway through the fourth quarter after a run-first game plan that was executed masterfully. Sharing with Dwayne Allen, Doyle will continue to be a low-end TE2 when Indianapolis heads to Oakland for Week 16.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 04:01:00 PM

Jack Doyle caught 5-of-6 targets for 55 yards in Week 14.

Doyle was more involved than Dwayne Allen this week, finishing behind only T.Y. Hilton in receiving. He was targeted on one of Andrew Luck's interceptions. It was one of his better games, but Doyle's role is week to week. He'll only be on the streaming radar if Donte Moncrief (hamstring) misses time.
