While Doyle was out, Eric Ebron asserted himself as a major cog in the Colts offense. How that affects Doyle's outlook remains uncertain, as Indy lacks for great options behind the two tight ends and T.Y. Hilton. Chester Rogers, who has averaged a 6-65-.25 line over the last month, has emerged as a viable threat, but we aren't sure it will be enough to keep the Colts from feeding both Doyle and Ebron.
Looking back to Weeks 1 and 2 before Doyle went down, he played 94 percent and 97 percent of snaps, respectively. Ebron's snap rate was 45 percent and 28 percent over those same games. We doubt that split resumes, so we are comfortable keeping Ebron as a TE1 with Doyle as a TE2 until we have reason to do otherwise.
