Scouting report

IND TE Mo Alie-Cox - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Mo Alie-Cox has shown flashes of potential, including six receptions and 111 yards against the Vikings in Week 2 last season, but he’s always been battling snaps on the depth chart. If he can step above the crowd this year, he could break out in a way many thought he would last year. New quarterback Carson Wentz has made use of multiple tight ends in the past, giving him sneaky upside entering his fourth season.

Fantasy Downside

Alie-Cox will be battling with Jack Doyle and rookie Kylen Granson for snaps, and the team will probably run the ball and continue to feed targets to Nyheim Hines and the wide receivers. It’s possible he continues to be lost in the shuffle. Doyle out-snapped him last year, and even Trey Burton wasn’t far behind.

2021 Bottom Line

Alie-Cox is basically free right now in all league formats, so he’s worth considering if you have large rosters and can stash a tight end. However, in most leagues, you won’t be able to afford to roster enough tight ends to make him worth serious consideration. Alie-Cox may wind up a regular fixture in the tight end streaming report though, so keep an eye on him.

IND TE Mo Alie-Cox - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Houston Texans

Mo Alie-Cox is an interesting option at the tight end position because of his athleticism and because he’s seeing more snaps than the other Colts tight ends – including Trey Burton. However, he's had just seven total receptions over his past three games combined and has only eclipsed 50 yards twice all year. He also hasn’t scored since Week 4 against the Bears. With Burton healthy, sit Alie-Cox.

IND TE Mo Alie-Cox - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Tennessee Titans

Mo Alie-Cox has a nice matchup this week against the Titans, but he’s still splitting targets and snaps with Trey Burton and Jack Doyle, who returned from injury last week to vulture a touchdown. Alie-Cox has upside, but until his targets get more consistent, he’s too risky to trust in fantasy lineups.

IND TE Mo Alie-Cox - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Green Bay Packers

Mo Alie-Cox caught three of four balls for 19 yards last week. He’s still splitting time with Trey Burton – and Jack Doyle, when healthy – but he may be the most talented and traditional tight end of the three. He has shown to cause mismatches across the field and has had some productive moments. He has a tough matchup against the Packers’ third-ranked defense in aFPA to opposing tight ends this week, and he’s still splitting work, making it hard to trust him. He’s a deep-league stash option at best, and should stay on waivers in most leagues.

IND TE Mo Alie-Cox - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Tennessee Titans

Mo Alie-Cox caught all three of his targets last week against the Ravens, gaining 43 yards. He led the Colts’ tight ends with 51% of the team’s offensive snaps, but the Colts seem to be continuing to use three tight ends. Even though Alie-Cox has a great matchup against a Titans defense that ranks 28th in aFPA to opposing tight ends, it’s hard to trust him with the three tight ends taking turns – even with Doyle’s status in question for this week. Alie-Cox is worth holding in extremely deep leagues in case he can rise above the rest of the crop, and he probably has some value in deep dynasty formats as well, but he’s too risky in most leagues and is probably better left on waivers for now.

IND TE Mo Alie-Cox - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Cleveland Browns

Mo Alie-Cox scored another touchdown last week, but it was his only reception and he was targeted just twice. Meanwhile Trey Burton had five targets. This week, Alie-Cox faces a Browns defense that ranks 30th in aFPA to opposing tight ends, giving him significant upside if he can lock down consistent targets. However, with Burton and Jack Doyle in the mix, it’s too risky to count on any of the tight ends in Indianapolis and he should remain on the bench for the time being.

IND TE Mo Alie-Cox - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Chicago Bears

Mo Alie-Cox had another good game last week against the Jets with 50 yards and a touchdown off three receptions. The coaching staff seemed to indicate he’ll have a role moving forward, so hopefully, he’s supplanted Jack Doyle and we can have a consistent fantasy option at the position for this team. Chicago actually ranks 20th in aFPA to opposing tight ends this year, so it’s worth considering him in deeper leagues, but he’s a risky streaming option at best until we get more clarity on his snap count with a healthy Doyle – and possibly a healthy Trey Burton soon – in the mix.
