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.

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.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 05:20:00 PM

Jack Doyle caught 4-of-4 targets for 31 yards in the Colts' Week 13 win over the Jets.

Doyle was close to scoring a touchdown right before halftime, but he lost control of the ball near the goal line and it went off the pylon for a touchback. He and Dwayne Allen each saw four targets, but Allen did much more with his, tallying 72 yards and three touchdowns. Doyle isn't a fantasy starter.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 11:43:00 PM

Jack Doyle reeled in two catches for 25 yards on two targets Thursday in the Colts' Week 12 loss to the Steelers.

Both of his targets came after halftime. Doyle hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 17 and has caught just three passes for 32 yards over his last two contests. He won’t be an appealing streamer against the Jets next week on Monday Night Football.
Fri, Nov 25, 2016 12:16:00 AM

Jack Doyle caught one pass for seven yards in Week 12.

Doyle and Dwayne Allen only saw two targets with Andrew Luck targeting receivers all game. They'll both be just touchdown-dependent streamers for Week 12.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 05:53:00 PM

Jack Doyle caught 5-of-9 targets for 61 yards Week 9 against the Packers.

Despite Dwayne Allen's return, Doyle operated as Andrew Luck's safety blanket all day, although he was the intended receiver on one of Luck's interceptions. Doyle also came up huge late in the game, converting one of two third downs which helped Indy ice the game. Even with Allen back, it is clear Doyle will have a role. He will be a solid TE2 against the Titans after the bye.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 08:15:00 PM

Jack Doyle caught 2-of-3 targets for 36 yards in Week 8 against the Chiefs.

Doyle was a non-factor after going off for a 9/78/1 line last week. He saw the same amount of targets as Erik Swoope. Doyle's floor takes a hit with Donte Moncrief back. He'll be a low-end streamer until Dwayne Allen returns.
