Doyle had two receptions for 20 yards on five targets in Sunday's win at Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Eric Ebron had more receptions (3) and caught a touchdown, but Doyle had more targets (Ebron had 3) and played more snaps on offense (59 to Ebron's 17 snaps). While Ebron may take away red zone targets from Doyle, it doens't look like Indy's two-tight end usage is a treat to Doyle's target share despite mediocre production against Washington.

Doyle had seven receptions on ten targets for 60 yards Sunday, but lost a critical fumble in the fourth quarter that led to a game-winning touchdown for the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle was second on the team in targets after T.Y. Hilton, so he showed he'll be a mainstay of the offense even with Eric Ebron (who scored a touchdown) part of the receiving mix. Doyle had lost just three fumbles in his last five seasons, so we wouldn't be overly concerned about ball security issues.

Doyle caught two of four targets for 32 yards in Monday's preseason loss to the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle, Chester Rogers and Eric Ebron each drew four targets in the first half, sharing the team lead before scrubs took over. Doyle got all of his chances from Andrew Luck, while Ebron saw two targets apiece from Luck and Jacoby Brissett. It increasingly seems likely that Ebron gets most of his playing time in two-TE formations, rather than posing any threat to Doyle's every-down role. The 28-year-old averaged 5.3 catches, 7.1 targets and 60.6 offensive snaps per game last season, ranking top five among tight ends in each category.

The Colts signed Eric Ebron to join Doyle at tight end, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the addition of Ebron will make it difficult for Doyle to match last year's career-high marks of 80 receptions and 107 targets, the expected return of Andrew Luck (shoulder) should provide the 27-year-old with more scoring opportunities, not to mention the potential for improvement on sub-par 2017 marks of 8.6 yards per catch and 6.4 per target. The Colts figure to make heavy use of two-TE formations, which should help compensate for a lack of talent at running back and wide receiver. New head coach Frank Reich previously served as coordinator for an Eagles offense that distributed 185 targets to tight ends in 2016 and 163 in 2017, accounting for 29.7 percent of the team total in his two-year tenure. Luck recently progressed to throwing footballs and could begin working with his teammates as soon as late April.

Doyle had four receptions for 38 yards on five targets, including a six-yard touchdown, in Sunday's win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle was one of the few things working well for the Indy offense in 2017 as he finished with 80 receptions for 690 yards and four touchdowns. His production could get a boost if Andrew Luck is able to return from a shoulder injury in 2018.

Doyle had five receptions for 41 yards on ten targets in Saturday's loss at Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle figured prominently into the passing game even if he was only able to connect half the time with Jacoby Brissett. He had eight receptions for 63 yards the last time the Colts faced the Texans, who they play again in Week 17.

Doyle brought in seven of eight targets for 47 yards in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle led the Colts in receptions, yardage and targets on the night, as he continues to serve as a security blanket for second-year quarterback Jacoby Brissett. The fifth-year tight end now has a pair of seven-catch outings in the last four games, and although he's seen the occasional downturn, he continues to build on a career year that now has seen him post 71 receptions for 611 yards and three touchdowns. He'll look to continue building on those numbers versus the Ravens in Week 16.

Doyle had two receptions for four yards on three targets, including a three-yard touchdown, in Sunday's loss at Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle had a season low in targets, yards and receptions, but it's hard to read too much into his performance given how much the passing game was limited by playing in a heavy blizzard. He should get more action in the passing game next week against Denver.

Doyle had three receptions for 16 yards on five targets in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Indy's passing game could never get going against a tough Jacksonville offense. Doyle remains perhaps the top target in the Indy passing game and should bounce back next week at Buffalo.

Doyle caught seven of eight targets for 94 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle was the only player able to get anything going in the passing game for Indianapolis, as nobody else racked up more than 34 receiving yards. While wide receiver T.Y. Hilton has a higher ceiling thanks to his blazing speed, Doyle has clearly become the most dependable option for quarterback Jacoby Brissett with at least six catches in five of the past six games and over 60 yards in three of the past four.
