2018 Fantasy Outlook
Doyle is not a man made for long trips - he's averaged just 9.2 YPC the last two seasons. But he's reliable with what he's asked to do; his 76-percent catch rate over that span is the highest among tight ends. Doyle also deserves credit for boosting his fantasy rank without Andrew Luck taking a single snap. In standard-scoring formats, Doyle checked in as the No. 9 tight end, and he was seventh in PPR. He should get Luck back in the saddle this year, hopefully for Week 1 (good luck getting the Colts to give us a straight answer on that). But he'll also have to share more, with Eric Ebron joining the club on a two-year contract. The Colts have shaky wide receiver depth after T.Y. Hilton, so perhaps Doyle and Ebron will frequently be on the field together. Doyle might not have a higher level to climb in his pro career, but he's at least proven to be bankable as a lower-end fantasy TE. And there isn't a dynamic red-zone threat on the roster; someone has to score the short touchdowns here. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
With Doyle set to miss his fifth straight contest, Eric Ebron will once again head the Colts' tight-end corps. Erik Swoope (knee) and Mo Alie-Cox are on hand to work behind Ebron in complementary roles.

Doyle isn't the type of player who jumps off the game tape -- he didn't even average 10 yards a grab last year -- but he had a handy catch rate and scored on 8.5 percent of his receptions. And now more work is likely to come Doyle's way, with Dwayne Allen traded to New England, after Coby Fleener departed for New Orleans last offseason. The Colts' willingness to let both tight ends leave strongly hints at confidence in Doyle, whose 80 percent catch rate the last three years is the highest at the position. He doesn't have particularly good speed, which explains why he went undrafted in 2013, but Andrew Luck likes to use big bodies around the goal line, and Doyle definitely qualifies at 6-6, 267. Three of Luck's six most common touchdown targets throughout his career are tight ends -- Doyle, in fact, is already on that list. He is a sleeper candidate to lead the Colts in touchdown receptions, and his workload figures to increase now that he is the only proven talent at tight end in a prolific passing game which also has questionable depth at wide receiver. Doyle isn't going to produce a lot of highlights between the 20s, but a tight end never looks better than when he is spiking a football in the painted area of the field.
Doyle is primed for his best season yet as he is the incumbent to the number two spot on the Colts' depth chart behind new starter Dwayne Allen. The 26-year-old recorded 12 receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown last year. While he'll see an increase in reps, his fantasy value doesn't appear to be too significant.
Doyle is mostly a blocking tight end who faces a tough road for playing time behind Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener.
