IND TE Mo Alie-Cox - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at San Francisco 49ers

Mo Alie-Cox had a touchdown last week, but it came on just one 28-yard reception on three targets. This week, Alie-Cox has a tough matchup against a 49ers defense that ranks eighth in aFPA to opposing tight ends. If the Colts are down T.Y. Hilton, that could open up more targets now that Parris Campbell is out for the season, but it’s too risky to bank on him when he’s been so inconsistent, especially in a tough matchup. Sit him.

IND TE Mo Alie-Cox - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Houston Texans

Mo Alie-Cox has been wildly inconsistent throughout his career and the Colts’ tight ends have been difficult to project during his tenure. However, he’s coming off two straight games with at least four targets and three receptions, and he followed up a two-touchdown performance in Week 4 with three catches and 50 yards last week against the Ravens. The main concern is that Jack Doyle is still out snapping him, but it’s encouraging.

Alie-Cox has some streaming upside against a vulnerable Texans defense that ranks 30th in aFPA to opposing tight ends. We have him ranked outside starting territory, but if you’re desperate, his production trend has a decent chance of continuing in a nice matchup. He’s a risky bet, but one that might be worth the gamble if you’re struggling.

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.
