Doyle played 37 of the Colts' 56 offensive snaps (66 percent) and hauled in one of four targets for a six-yard gain in the team's 38-20 loss to the Jaguars in Week 17.

EDGE Analysis

After being rewarded with a three-year, $21.3 million contract extension in early December, Doyle didn't exactly reward the Colts for their investment. Over his three games after landing the extension, Doyle contributed just five receptions for 44 yards across 13 targets. The new deal and general manager Chris Ballard's recent acknowledgement that Eric Ebron (ankle) wouldn't be re-signed nonetheless clears the way for Doyle to enter 2020 as the clear top option on the depth chart at tight end. However, as his production down the stretch seemed to illustrate, Doyle may struggle to be a reliable week-to-week option in fantasy lineups with Jacoby Brissett as his quarterback rather than Andrew Luck.

Doyle caught two of four passes for 17 yards during Sunday's 38-6 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle's 17 yards were a season low. The veteran tight end has had a ho-hum season, managing just four games with at least 30 receiving yards. The Colts' pass offense has been on the decline over the past month and a half, having been held under 200 yards in four of the last six games. The season ends net Sunday against Jacksonville's middle-of-the-pack pass defense, but the Colts and Doyle have done little to inspire confidence that they'll be able to do much to capitalize on the matchup.

Doyle caught two of five targets for 21 yards in Monday night's 34-7 loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle ranked third on the Colts in targets, but nobody on Indy's offense could produce much against a stingy Saints defense. The tight end has now caught just two passes in back-to-back games following his best outing of the season in Week 13.

Doyle caught two of six targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 38-35 loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Fresh off signing a three-year extension, Doyle delivered a dud against a Buccaneers defense that has been quite generous to tight ends this season. He has three touchdowns in his last five games, but he's only topped 50 yards twice this season, making him tough to trust against the Saints in Week 15.

Doyle signed a three-year contract extension with the Colts on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The team didn't officially announce the financial terms of Doyle's new deal, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Network relays that the tight end is due more than $21 million in new money, with undisclosed incentives potentially pushing the value of the contract up to $24 million. With Doyle locked up through the 2022 season, the Colts will most likely move on from fellow tight end Eric Ebron (ankles), who is set to become a free agent this spring. Ebron has bounced back from an injury shortened 2018 campaign to play in all 12 of the Colts' games to date, recording 36 receptions for 377 yards and four touchdowns in those contests.

Doyle caught six of his 11 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 13 loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle benefitted from the lack of receiving options in the Colts' passing attack, leading the team in targets. He didn't work down the field much -- he did score on a 21-yard touchdown pass deep down the left sideline on a misdirection pass -- but proved to be a reliable target for Jacoby Brissett throughout the contest. He'll have a positive matchup against the Buccaneers in Week 14, though it remains to be seen whether T.Y. Hilton (calf), Parris Campbell (hand) or Chester Rogers (knee) will be back to take away targets.

Doyle hauled in three of four targets for 28 yards in the Colts' 20-17 loss to the Texans on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle tied with multiple teammates for second in receptions on the night, although it led to his seventh sub-30-yard tally of the season. The veteran has no fewer than three grabs in eight of his last nine contests, but his upside is generally capped unless he finds the end zone, which he's done on three occasions overall this season. Doyle will look for better production against the Titans in a Week 13 divisional matchup a week from Sunday.

Doyle didn't have a reception or target in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle was bothered by a shoulder issue during practice last week but still played on 42 of the offense's 66 snaps. He went out for a pass on 16 snaps, so his lack of receptions wasn't due to any health issues. He should be be back in the mix for receptions Thursday at Houston.

Doyle (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars after practicing fully Friday.

EDGE Analysis

With both T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) still out and Devin Funchess (collarbone) not ready to come off injured reserve, Doyle and fellow tight end Eric Ebron should log a solid share of snaps/targets in Week 11. In last week's loss to the Dolphins, Ebron hauled in five of his 12 targets for 56 yards, while Doyle caught three of his four targets for 44 yards and a score. This Sunday, the duo will be catching passes from Jacoby Brissett, who's back from a one-game absence caused by a knee issue.

Doyle (shoulder) was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Doyle sat out Wednesday's practice, so his return to a limited session Thursday has him trending toward being available for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. We'll revisit the tight end's status Friday to see if he is listed as questionable for the contest or heads into the weekend minus an injury designation.
