The Indianapolis Colts head into the 2021 season with two tight ends looking to establish themselves with QB Carson Wentz. Jack Doyle is the more proven player, but Mo Alie-Cox had some strong games last season and should get opportunities.

Fantasy Football analysis: Colts TEs Jack Doyle, Mo Alie-Cox

Doyle had his most productive season in 2017, but has struggled to go beyond that level since. His production has declined steadily since then, but he could be in for a strong season if he clicks with Wentz. Alie-Cox had some strong outings early last season, but ultimately he failed to parlay those into a massive campaign. Health will be a big factor in this position group.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Tight end is always a struggle for most fantasy owners. There’s only a handful of tight ends who actually deliver high value, meaning most owners are scrambling for decent options. This situation is not great, as there are two tight ends who have failed to clearly take the top spot. Don’t start either player in Week 1, and proceed with caution if the situation does eventually become more clear.
