Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Fifth in targets (108) and second in catches (80) among all TEs, Doyle was a rare volume contributor outside the position's elite crop. He still mustered just 690 yards with the lowest air yards per target (4.9) of any TE or WR, so he'll lose some dump-off throws with a returning Andrew Luck extending the passing game downfield. His extraordinary 95 % snap rate--he played every down over the final four games--is also sure to drop with Eric Ebron giving the Colts another pass-catching TE. He'll need more red-zone work to remain a trustworthy weekly starter.While perennially perceived as a disappointment, Ebron has slipped into the top 15 of TEs (standard and PPR) in each of the last two seasons. He never broke out in full earnest, but 86 targets in back-to-back years made him a steady streamer with Detroit. That workload, however, is in danger of decaying after joining Jack Doyle in Indianapolis. Dwayne Allen's 2016 (3.7 targets per game) might be a more reasonable projection for Ebron, who could nevertheless remain a matchup play because of Luck's penchant for finding TEs in the end zone.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
He has seen a vast majority of the TE snaps with the first team in the preseason and is a favorite target of Luck.Eric Ebron has lined up "everywhere" in the Colts offense. And the new tight end already is beginning to feel at home in Indianapolis. @gmbremer From week 10-16, Ebron was the TE5 as Detroit was trying to shop him around in the off season before dropping him.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
This is one of the most difficult players to forecast. Not only does Andrew Luck's shoulder linger over Doyle's production, but the Colts made a move for Eric Ebron who is one of just 14 tight ends all-time to receive for over 2,000 yards before his 25th birthday. There is a chance that Doyle finishes as a top-five tight end and also a decent chance he is entirely irrelevant. I don't mind buying a lottery ticket, just be aware that it is what we are getting out of Doyle.It may be tempting, but don't be so quick to give up on Ebron. Since 2000, only Gronk, Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten and Jeremy Shockey have as many receiving yards as Ebron before their 25th birthdays. Ebron might have to overtake Doyle before having much relevance, but there is a shot it happens or that they use him as a move tight end with Doyle on the line in two tight end sets. That means there is a shot Ebron morphs into a top-five fantasy tight end with Andrew Luck throwing him the ball.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The addition of Eric Ebron to the roster does cloudy the picture to clear targets for Doyle, but not enough to move him out of the TE1 conversation. If you recall, Doyle's breakout season took place when most thought Dwayne Allen was on the roster and most thought he was the one to own. Doyle has chemistry with Andrew Luck and even showed the ability to produce with Jacoby Brissett last year, which gives an added level of comfort. Luck has targeted tight ends much more than most during his career, and with the addition of Frank Reich, who comes out from Doug Pederson's tight-end-heavy offense shouldn't change that. Doyle should be considered a high-end TE2 until proven not to be. It's very possible that Ebron ends up higher in my final rankings, provided Andrew Luck is looking like the old Andrew Luck in the preseason. He targets the tight end position an awful lot, so despite Ebron's lack of development, he can be a player on a team that has serious wide receiver problems.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Doyle has long played well with other tight ends, so Indy's addition of Eric Ebron may not hinder the veteran too much. Doyle's issue is a lack of red zone targets, which has capped him at a career-high of five touchdowns. Doyle is unlikely to see 108 targets again next season, but his steady hands should give him a high floor as a quality TE2.The Colts use two tight end sets at the second-highest rate in the league, which means that even with Jack Doyle in the fold Ebron could hold some fantasy relevance. He was a bust in Detroit, but Ebron is just 25 and still holds some fantasy upside. He's a high-risk, high-reward TE that I'd be willing to snap up as a TE2, particularly if I had a safe TE1.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Doyle is solid, and the Colts aren't inundated with wide receiver talent after T.Y. Hilton, but the acquisition of Eric Ebron is a gut punch for Doyle backers. The good news is that the Colts should run 2TE sets, so both Ebron and Doyle will have some value.Luck to Ebron sure sounds good, but we have to factor in Jack Doyle and a whole host of variables that this Colts team probably doesn't have its head wrapped around just yet. The good news is that they will likely play with two tight ends and both have fantasy value if Andrew Luck is healthy.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Doyle averaged 6.2 fantasy points on a terrible offense, he could be elevated to TE1 status if QB Andrew Luck returns from a shoulder injury. Ebron has a ton of sleeper potential playing with QB Andrew Luck and the Colts plan on using him all over the formation.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The presence of Eric Ebron hurts Doyle's ceiling, but the return of Luck keeps him in play for a top-10 finish.
