Colts signed TE Jack Doyle to a three-year extension worth almost $24 million with incentives.
Doyle has become one of the focal points of the Colts' offense with Eric Ebron on injured reserve and T.Y. Hilton still out with a calf injury. Ebron is also headed toward free agency and this new contract for Doyle means Ebron has likely played his final game as a Colt. Doyle is coming off a 73-yard, one-touchdown performance in Week 13 against the Titans.
IND TE Jack Doyle - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Jacksonville Jaguars
Jack Doyle has struggled the past three games with just a pair of receptions in each of them. Last week, the Colts got up early on the Panthers and were able to run the rest of the way, but Doyle remains a player with upside given he’s the clear-cut number one tight end on the roster since Eric Ebron went on injured reserve.
The Jaguars rank 19th in aFPA to opposing tight ends this season and allowed seven catches and 82 yards to Austin Hooper last week. The Jaguars look like they barely have a pulse lately, giving Doyle significant upside to finish up the year. We have him as a fringe-starter this week and an excellent streaming option.
