The Indianapolis Colts returned to practice on Wednesday, but they were without tight end Jack Doyle. He was listed as a DNP on Wednesday with a shoulder injury, per Adam Caplan. This past week, Doyle had three receptions for 44 yards and a touchdown against the Miami Dolphins. This coming week, the Colts host the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy football analysis: Colts TEs Jack Doyle, Eric Ebron
Doyle’s status will be something to track on Thursday and Friday, but if you need to make a waiver decision today, Ebron is worth a flier. He’s been touchdown dependent, but with T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell out, Ebron gains even more value if Doyle were to miss Sunday’s game. And if not, you can release Ebron back into the player pool.
The Jaguars rank 16th in fantasy points allowed to tight ends, so they’re right in the middle of the pack. This weekend’s matchup does offer some upside to all the Colts skill position players with Jacoby Brissett expected to be back in the starting lineup.
