Fantasy football start/sit Week 12: What to do with Jack Doyle

Indianapolis’ tight end is worth a look this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle only caught two passes in Week 10 but he just might be worth starting against the Tennessee Titans this Sunday. Doyle is a favourite target of Jacoby Brissett.

The young tight end has 52 catches for 450 yards and two touchdowns in nine games this season.

Fantasy impact: The fact Doyle has only found the end zone twice this year is certainly not impressive. The good news is that the Titans gave up 40 points to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. They also only rank in the middle of the league at defending the tight end position.

Combine those two factors and you wouldn’t be absolutely crazy to start Doyle this week. The tight end position is usually where a team’s safety valve is found. Doyle is big enough and athletic enough to get open down the middle.

He’s also been targeted at least seven times in six out of nine games this year. Getting that number of looks against a weak defense is reason enough to get Doyle in the lineup.

Recommendation: Start
