Doyle had an injury-plagued seasons, suffering hip and kidney ailments. He needed offseason surgery to repair his hip injury but should be ready by training camp. Doyle was limited to six games last year and caught 26 passes for 245 yards and two scores. Unfortunately for Doyle, Eric Ebron emerged as a top pass catcher at tight end for the Colts and should continue to start with Doyle serving as the No. 2 tight end for the Colts. Doyle had at least 59 receptions two straight seasons before last year. Doyle is more of a move the chains tight end and solid blocker. He isn't going to make a ton of big plays but catches the ball well and has red-zone potential.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Doyle has some value as a low-end No. 2 fantasy tight end. He'll get his catches in this pass-first offense. Doyle isn't going to find the end zone much, though, and his yards will be just alright. He could get around 50 receptions for 500 yards and four or so touchdowns.
2018 was mostly a lost year for Jack Doyle, as injuries limited him to only five full games. He first missed five games with a hip injury and then had his season ended by a kidney laceration in Week 12. During those absences, it was newly-signed Eric Ebron who ascended to the fantasy elite, hauling in 13 TD along with 750 yards. That production has given Ebron an overall ADP of 76, heading into the 2019 season as the #7 TE, while Doyle has basically been forgotten, being drafted as the 21st TE at #170 overall. If Doyle is healthy - and he's on track for training camp after having offseason hip surgery - then why wouldn't we assume that he will still get the bulk of the TE targets, regardless of Ebron's 2018 results?In the 5.5 games they played together in 2018, Doyle was targeted 33 times, to Ebron's 15, and while Ebron may have had great counting stats last year, it took him 110 targets to grab 66 catches, catching at only a 60% rate. Doyle, on the other hand, has had three years in a row of catch-rates above 75%, has an established relationship with quarterback Andrew Luck, and averaged 1.3 red zone targets/game last year, which is virtually the same as Ebron's year-end average. Doyle may not have as high of a ceiling as other TEs, but if hes getting the lions share of targets from the talented Andrew Luck, then getting him at a throwaway ADP of 170 could be a draft-day steal for those who choose to wait on tight end.

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle exploded in Week 13, but he struggled in a big way in Week 14 despite a great matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He caught two of his six targets for 27 yards, and he failed to get into the end zone. Doyle gets the volume to be a consistent fantasy tight end, but he didn't convert on it this week. He'll be a consistent option down the stretch, but he'll never be a high-ceiling player like some of the other guys at the position.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle ended up with just two catches for 27 yards on six targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle had a giant performance last week, but he fell back to Earth in this one and was a bit of a fantasy disappointment. He can still be a low-end TE1 heading into New Orleans in Week 15 on MNF.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle signed a three-year contract extension with the Colts Friday, Dec. 6, worth as much as $24 million, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle has played well at times this season and has caught a touchdown in three of the last four games. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end against most opponents.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle posted six grabs for 73 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle picked up the slack with Eric Ebron out of the lineup and done for the season. If you could continue this type of production he would be a decent low-end TE1 for the remainder of the season.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle has been relatively quiet all season, but he has the chance to be a featured player this week against the Tennessee Titans. Fellow tight end Eric Ebron (ankle) was placed on Injured Reserve early last week, and starting wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (calf) will miss this game. Doyle has been Brissett's favorite target for much of the season, and his volume should increase dramatically this week. With Ebron now out of the picture and Hilton out again, Doyle could easily be quarterback Jacoby Brissett's favorite target, giving Doyle clear TE1 upside the rest of the season.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle failed to register a target in Week 11, but he showed some life in Week 12. He caught three of his four targets for 28 yards, which fell right in line with his level of production that he's maintained throughout the year. He's now caught three or more passes in seven out of the team's 11 games. Doyle will likely never be the breakout player that he was two seasons ago, but when you need to make sure that you don't have a zero in your tight end spot, he's about as safe as you can get.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle had been one of the most consistent players on the team before he disappeared in Week 11 with no targets or catches. In Week 12, you can't count on him to produce a lot, and his ceiling was never all that high anyway. He only has three touchdowns on the year, and he's only gone over 50 yards in a game one time this season. Good fantasy football tight ends are hard to find, especially when two or three of them are on byes this week, but you can still find a better option than Doyle.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle has a chance to be a popular target in the passing game with Jacoby Brissett back in the lineup. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle appears to be on track to play in Week 11, but fantasy players can check on his status later in the week. He will see a decent amount of targets if he plays and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
Indianapolis Colts TE Mo Alie-Cox (hip), WR Parris Campbell (hand), CB Pierre Desir (hamstring), WR T.Y. Hilton (calf), RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle), WR Ashton Dulin (neck), S Malik Hooker (knee) and DE Jabaal Sheard (rest) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 14. TE Jack Doyle (shoulder) was upgraded to a limited session. S Clayton Geathers (rest), LB Darius Leonard (abdomen) and QB Jacoby Brissett (knee) practiced in full.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (shoulder) returned to practice Thursday, Nov. 14.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle appears to be on track to get his usual complement of snaps against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11 after sitting out Wednesday's session. With T.Y. Hilton expected to miss another game but Jacoby Brissett set to return, Doyle is a serviceable TE2 with low-end TE1 upside.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle (shoulder) is back at practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. Doyle should be able to play this weekend in Week 11 against the Jaguars. He has scored in back-to-back weeks but has only 66 yards receiving in that timeframe and has his upside limited while sharing snaps with teammate Eric Ebron. However, Doyle will have more TE2 streaming appeal if T.Y. Hilton (calf) misses another game this weekend with quarterback Jacoby Brissett (knee) expected to return.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players should check later in the week to see if Doyle will be able to play in Week 11. He has caught a touchdown in each of the last two games and could be a possible low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle caught three of his four targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in a 16-12 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 10.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle has scored in back-to-back games, but his minimal involvement outside of the red zone limits his fantasy appeal.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle has been relatively quiet all season. In Week 9, he got into the end zone for the first time since Week 4, and he could have more upside in Week 10. The Miami Dolphins have been brutal on defense, and the Colts will likely only have one or two mouths ahead of him to feed due to all of their injuries. At the tight end position, you're often hoping for just a touchdown or a lot of catches. Doyle has the potential to get into the end zone this week, and if your starting tight end is on a bye or injured, Doyle isn't the worst option out there.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle posted three grabs for 22 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle was targeted four times and outshined Eric Ebron (2-16-0), though neither was particularly attractive from a fantasy perspective. Doyle is still a low-end TE2 in most fantasy leagues in Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle had his best game of the season last week, but you still shouldn't be counting on him in Week 9. He's gone over 40 receiving yards just twice this season and he hasn't caught more than four balls in any game. The Colts have a lot of weapons that they throw the ball to, and Doyle isn't exactly the top target. He's more of a safety valve, which is a role that he plays well, but that isn't a great role for fantasy owners. Unfortunately for Doyle, you just can't trust him on a weekly basis to get you a good amount of points.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle caught four of his five targets for a season-high 61 yards in a 15-13 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 8.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle has been held to 22 yards or less in six of the eight games this season, and he has just a single touchdown. Unless Eric Ebron misses time, Doyle doesn't need to be on fantasy rosters.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (groin) is officially active for the team's Week 8 game.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle has not been a big factor in the passing game but may have more success this week. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (groin) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.
Fantasy Spin: Doyle was added to the injury report Friday, so he could be a game-time decision for Week 8. Doyle has been targeted 25 times over six games this season but has posted at least 30 yards only once this season. Fantasy players may want to look for other options even if Doyle is able to play.
