Jack Doyle has announced his retirement from the NFL.
The veteran tight end—turning 32 in May—had one year remaining on his deal, but he's hanging up his cleats after nine seasons in the league. Doyle's best year came in 2017 when he caught 80 passes for 690 yards and four touchdowns, and overall, the former undrafted free agent had 295 receptions, 2,729 yards, and 24 touchdowns since entering the NFL in 2013. Doyle was a very reliable player for Indy, so they will need to replace him as the franchise tries to get back in the playoffs next year, especially with Mo Alie-Cox set to hit free agency. We wish Doyle all the best in the future.
Jack Doyle (ankle/knee) is out for the remainder of the game.
Doyle walked off slowly in the first quarter, but looked like he was ready to go back in, which isn’t the case. Kylen Granson should have an extended role behind Mo Alie-Cox for the rest of the night.
Jack Doyle remains in concussion protocol.
Doyle left the first half of yesterday's loss to the Ravens, and he now faces a major uphill climb to get cleared on a short week. Expect Doyle to be ruled out for the Colts' Week 10 Thursday night matchup against the Titans.
Jack Doyle (concussion) has been ruled out for the rest of today's game.
Doyle headed to the locker room at the end of the first half following a big hit, and he's now been ruled out for the game. Hopefully the veteran tight end is feeling better soon.
Jack Doyle (knee) is officially active for Week 3.
Doyle is back and will complement Mo Alie-Cox for the tight end group in Indianapolis. Doyle isn’t a highly recommended fantasy option this week.
Jack Doyle (ankle/knee) has been ruled out for Week 2.
Doyle has unfortunately dealt with a bunch of injuries throughout his career, and he'll miss the second game of the season for a Colts team dealing with a number of injuries. The running backs underneath could be relied upon heavily by Philip Rivers against the Vikings.
The Colts signed Jack Doyle to a three-year contract extension.
Doyle is unsurprisingly a guy that Colts head coach Frank Reich and general manager Chris Ballard really wanted to keep around, and this is good news for the tight end's long-term fantasy value. Doyle has an 80-catch season in his career (2017) and is averaging a career-high in yards per reception this season (10.5). Doyle is a key piece for Indianapolis moving forward.
Jack Doyle (groin) is officially active for Week 8.
Doyle popped up on the injury report with a groin issue, but he’s ready to go today against the Broncos. Consider Doyle a TE2 in fantasy lineups.
Jack Doyle (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 8.
Doyle suddenly popped up on the injury report today as a limited practice participant and is not a lock to play this Sunday against the the Broncos, but we do expect he’ll be active. Indy kicks off at 1:00 PM ET, so his status will be known in the morning.
Jack Doyle (hip) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
After offseason hip surgery, it's great to hear that everything is on track and the Colts tight end is expected to be good to go for training camp. Doyle dealt with the hip injury all last season before a kidney injury in Week 12 knocked him out for the year, and his addition back into the offense will be big for Andrew Luck and company. Doyle will have heavy competition for targets in a stacked offense, though.
Jack Doyle had hip surgery.
Colts GM Chris Ballard said that Doyle had surgery on the hip injury that bothered him all throughout last season, and that while he probably won't do anything during offseason training, they're "shooting for the start of training camp for him to be back." Ideally, we'll see Doyle ready to go for the start of training camp, as it'd be a great sign considering the Colts are unlikely to rush him back—especially because Indy is so deep at tight end. More information on Doyle's progress should become available sometime this spring or summer.
Jack Doyle is out for the season with a kidney injury.
Colts head coach Frank Reich says Doyle was hospitalized last night because of a serious kidney injury. Thankfully, Doyle is expected to be released from the hospital soon, but unfortunately his season is over. We wish Doyle the best as he recovers from this injury, and we look forward to seeing him back on the field in 2019. His season ends with 26 receptions for 245 yards and two touchdowns in six games, and Eric Ebron (11 touchdowns already this season) will now be locked-in as a solid, every-week TE1, including next week against the Jaguars.
Jack Doyle scores in win over the Dolphins.
Doyle caught four passes for 16 yards, including a one-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Eric Ebron did more damage with 45 yards and two scores of his own, but Doyle will probably be a more reliable TE1 down the stretch, including next week in Jacksonville.
Jack Doyle catches all four targets in Week 11.
Doyle gained 43 yards on his four receptions against the Titans, as he was a very reliable target for Andrew Luck. Doyle will remain in the TE1 mix next week against the Dolphins.
Jack Doyle catches three passes in Week 10.
Doyle gained 36 yards on his three receptions against the Jaguars. Eric Ebron (two receiving touchdowns, one rushing touchdown) and Mo Alie-Cox both capitalized with scores against a Jacksonville defense that's blowing coverages, but Doyle was unable to join the party with a score. He'll look to get in the end zone next week against the Titans.
Jack Doyle gets featured in first game action since Week 2.
Doyle caught six passes for 70 yards and a touchdown, leading the Colts in all categories, including targets (seven). The connection between he and Andrew Luck didn't miss a beat, as Doyle scored from ten yards away on what turned out to be the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter. Eric Ebron (who also scored on Sunday) should remain involved, but Doyle looks like the clear tight end to own in Indy, and he should be added in all formats as the Colts head into the bye week.
Jack Doyle is off the Week 8 injury report.
After missing the last five games, Doyle will be back in the lineup for Andrew Luck and the Colts this week. Eric Ebron has emerged as a big-time red-zone weapon for Indy, but Doyle should step back in for a sizable role alongside Ebron. Doyle is on the TE2 radar in his first game back, and he's worth a pickup as a potential high-floor TE1 down the stretch, particularly in PPR leagues.
Jack Doyle (hip) remains limited in practice.
Doyle looks headed for another limited practice tomorrow, and it'd be a positive sign if he's listed as questionable with a shot to play on Sunday. We'll update you when the injury report is released tomorrow.
Jack Doyle (hip) was officially limited in practice.
Doyle has missed the last five games, but he's getting close to a return. Colts head coach Frank Reich says he has a chance to play this week, so we'll track his practice status throughout the week. A full participation tomorrow or Friday would be a great sign.
Jack Doyle (hip) is officially out for Week 7.
This is Doyle's fourth straight missed game, and there doesn't seem to be a timetable for his return. Doyle doesn't need to be owned in fantasy leagues right now.
Jack Doyle (hip) did not practice today.
Doyle remains week-to-week with his hip injury, but hopefully he’s able to get up to at least a limited practice this week.
Jack Doyle (hip) is expected to miss another game.
Doyle is still week-to-week, and Eric Ebron is likely to be the clear top tight end for the Colts this Sunday against the Jets. Expect Doyle to be ruled out ahead of the weekend, but we'll update you if anything changes before then.
Jack Doyle (hip) has been ruled out for Week 5.
Doyle did not practice this week and does not seem particularly close to a return, but we'll track his status next week leading up to the Colts' Week 6 game against the Jets. Eric Ebron will be the clear top tight end for Andrew Luck for the third straight game, and he's a backend TE1 for Week 5.
Jack Doyle (hip) remains out of practice.
We'll see what happens tomorrow, but Doyle is looking like a long shot to play on Sunday against the Texans. Eric Ebron was a full participant today, so he should be ready to go as a full-time player for Indy.
Jack Doyle (hip) did not practice today.
Doyle is considered week-to-week with his hip injury. A limited practice tomorrow would be a good sign, but it’s possible Doyle is ruled out ahead of the weekend.
Jack Doyle (hip) is out for Week 3.
Doyle did not practice this week, so he's been ruled out ahead of the weekend. This means Eric Ebron might play close to the full game against the Eagles on Sunday, putting him in backend TE1 consideration. Consider Doyle questionable for Week 4 against the Texans.
Jack Doyle gets five targets in Week 2.
Doyle caught two passes on his five targets against the Redskins, gaining 20 yards. Eric Ebron scored another touchdown on a throw to the end zone, so he's putting at least a slight dent in Doyle's scoring potential.
Jack Doyle leads team in receiving, fumbles late in Week 1 loss.
Doyle caught seven passes for 60 yards, but a lost fumble on Indy's potential game-winning drive ended their hopes to open the season with a victory. The veteran tight end should continue to operate as Andrew Luck's favorite target behind T.Y. Hilton, so he's a borderline TE1 heading into a Week 2 matchup with the Redskins.
Jack Doyle scores in season finale.
Doyle caught four passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in the 22-13 win over Houston. The 27-year-old put up an impressive 80/690/4 receiving line with Andrew Luck out of the lineup, but he could stand to gain some upside in 2018 with Luck's hopeful return. Doyle will be a TE1 option in all leagues next year, but it might not be worth reaching for him before the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
Jack Doyle gets ten targets in Week 16.
Doyle worked as a reliable underneath target for Jacoby Brissett, just as he has for most of the season. He caught five passes for 41 yards in the loss to the Ravens and will be a TE1 option in PPR leagues in particular next week against the Texans.
Jack Doyle gets eight targets against the Broncos.
Doyle worked as a reliable underneath target for Jacoby Brissett throughout the night, catching seven passes for 47 yards in the Week 15 loss. Doyle will remain in the backend TE1 discussion next week against Baltimore, with a boost in PPR leagues.
Jack Doyle scores in Week 14.
With the Colts needing a touchdown late in the fourth quarter amid snowy conditions in Buffalo, Doyle got open in the flat for the score. Then on the next play, he caught a two-point conversion that looked like it might win the gam for Indy, but it was called back because of a penalty. Overall, Doyle had two receptions for four yards and a touchdown in the overtime loss. He'll be a TE1 option next week versus Denver.
Jack Doyle catches three passes in Week 13.
Doyle gained only 16 yards against the Jaguars, and he's had some subpar games like this in 2017. He'll try to bounce back next week against the Bills and is worth considering as a TE1 option in fantasy lineups.
Jack Doyle grabs seven passes in Week 12.
Doyle was targeted a team-high eight times versus the Titans, catching seven passes for 94 yards. He continues to get a sizable share of the targets for the Colts (30% of the targets in this game), so Doyle remains a TE1 option in fantasy lineups.
Steelers take away Jack Doyle as Colts fall to 3-7.
Doyle caught two passes for just nine yards. Fantasy owners will have to look elsewhere if they've been using Doyle as their tight end, as Indianapolis is heading into a bye before facing the Titans in Week 12. He'll be back as a TE1 option against a team he went 7/50/1 against earlier in the season.
Jack Doyle catches game-high eight passes in win over the Texans.
Doyle had eight receptions for 63 yards, and he was an effective target underneath for quarterback Jacoby Brissett. The 27-year-old now has 20 catches over the past two weeks, and he will look to keep it going against the Steelers in Week 10. He's a solid TE1, particularly in PPR leagues.
Jack Doyle goes off against the Bengals.
Doyle, who's been working mainly as an underneath outlet for Jacoby Brissett recently, was targeted a team-high 14 times in the Colts' Week 8 loss, catching 12 passes for 121 yards and a touchdown. The score was the first touchdown of the game, and it was on a nice leaping catch on a corner route. If Doyle gets targeted like this moving forward, he'd be right back in the mid-TE1 conversation, even without Andrew Luck at quarterback. Doyle faces the Texans next week.
Jack Doyle leads Colts in Week 7 receiving.
Doyle caught six of seven targets for 44 yards against the Jaguars, working as a reliable guy underneath while Jacoby Brissett was under constant pressure. The Colts face the Bengals in Week 8, but Doyle is not an advisable fantasy option against a team that's been stout against opposing tight ends this season.
Jack Doyle scores in Week 6.
Doyle caught seven of a team-high 11 targets against the Titans, gaining 50 yards including the touchdown. The score came on a pass to the flat on a run-pass option, and Doyle basically walked into the end zone for an eight-yarder. Doyle did also have a lost fumble in the game and could've come up with another pass that was low but off his hands, but overall he had a fine game and caught his first touchdown of the season. He gets the Jaguars next week.
Jack Doyle is officially out of concussion protocol.
The Colts tight end will return on Monday night against the Titans after missing last week versus San Francisco. Without Andrew Luck, Doyle offers a pretty low floor but is still an option in fantasy lineups.
Jack Doyle (concussion) is out for Week 5.
The Colts will turn to Brandon Williams, Henry Krieger-Coble, and Darrell Daniels at tight end against the 49ers, and none of them are recommended fantasy options. Hopefully Doyle is back for Week 6 against the Titans, but he won't be a reliable TE1 until Andrew Luck (shoulder) returns.
Jack Doyle (concussion) remains limited in practice.
Doyle will have to get cleared of his concussion to play on Sunday, but the fact that he is participating on a limited basis in practice is a good sign.
Jack Doyle (concussion) was limited in practice today.
Being limited means Doyle is off to a good start as he tries to get fully cleared of his concussion before Sunday. Check back in on his status throughout the week.
Jack Doyle catches five passes in Week 4.
Doyle was targeted seven times, and he gained 27 yards on his five receptions while also dropping a pass. He's on pace for 68 receptions and 658 yards this season, but he should put up better numbers when Andrew Luck is back (hopefully in Week 6).
Jack Doyle held in check as Colts defeat the Browns.
Doyle has just two catches for 16 yards, and also lost a fumble. He will continue to be an inconsistent option until Andrew Luck returns to the field, which fortunately should be within a few weeks. Keep Doyle far away from lineups with the Seahawks on deck.
Jack Doyle catches all eight targets in Week 2.
Jacoby Brissett certainly liked throwing Doyle's way in his first start with the Colts. Doyle led the team with eight receptions and 79 yards against Arizona. He'll look to build on that heading into Week 3 against Cleveland. Doyle should be a very good TE1 option, as the Browns have struggled to defend tight ends so far this year.
Jack Doyle caught two passes for 41 yards in Sunday's season opener.
Doyle was a popular breakout pick for some, but he's unlikely to realize that until Andrew Luck is back in the lineup. Doyle won't be a recommended fantasy option next week against the Cardinals.
Jack Doyle catches one pass for nine yards in the Colts' third preseason game.
Doyle had three targets in the game and his preseason could be over unless the Colts opt to play their starter some in the fourth preseason game. Doyle's early-season upside could be limited if Andrew Luck (shoulder) ends up missing any regular season games.
Jack Doyle caught three passes for 12 yards in Saturday night's preseason game.
Doyle and the rest of the skill position players for Indianapolis could really use Andrew Luck back, and their early-season fantasy value will be determined on the health of the superstar quarterback. Hopefully you can hold your fantasy draft as late as possible to get a good idea about Luck's health. If not, you might want to let someone else take Doyle.
Jack Doyle catches one pass in preseason opener.
The Colts tight end caught one-of-two targets for four yards. He's being drafted as a borderline TE1.
Jack Doyle has re-signed with the Colts, according to Stephen Holder.
This will likely be a fairly big deal for Doyle, and undrafted player from 2013. He had a real nice season for the Colts in 2016 and was a reliable target for Andrew Luck. The Colts have now paid Dwayne Allen and Jack Doyle in back-to-back offseasons. Doyle should be a TE1/TE2 next season, especially if the Colts parted ways with Dwayne Allen despite just signing him to an extension last offseason.
UPDATE: It's a three-year deal for Doyle, according to multiple reports.
UPDATE 2: The move was first reported by Chris Hagan (@ChrisHaganIndy on Twitter).
Doyle catches game-winning touchdown in season finale.
It looked like the Colts won the Super Bowl after Andrew Luck hit Doyle with a few seconds left in the game to win. Doyle finished with two catches for 10 yards, and had a solid season of 59 catches for 584 yards and five touchdowns. He won't be drafted in most fantasy leagues this summer, but Doyle is a quality player for the Colts.
Jack Doyle caught five passes for 46 yards in Week 16.
He isn't a reliable play, but Doyle isn't a bad option to end the season against the Jags.
Jack Doyle caught four passes for 32 yards in Week 15.
He's a risky tight end option, but does have upside as one of Andrew Luck's tight ends.
Jack Doyle caught five-of-six targets for 55 yards in Sunday's loss to Houston.
Doyle was better than Dwayne Allen, who was held without a catch, a week after Allen exploded on MNF. Both will be hard to trust in Week 15 against Minnesota.
Jack Doyle caught four passes for 30 yards in Monday night's win over the Jets.
Doyle saw as many targets as fellow tight end Dwayne Allen (four), but Allen turned his into 72 yards and three touchdowns. With Andrew Luck under center, Doyle has a chance for a big game in any given week, but there are probably better options out there.
Jack Doyle caught two passes for 25 yards in Thursday night's loss to Pittsburgh.
Doyle is the #2 tight end with Dwayne Allen healthy, but could have a couple nice games down the stretch with Andrew Luck under center. Still, he is no more than a TE2.
