Jack Doyle a Mediocre Spot-Start Option against 49ers

Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle has struggled since his 70-plus yard performance in Week 2, failing to finish within the top 20 for fantasy tight ends in every other game this season. Against a seemingly porous San Francisco 49ers pass defense, he would appear to be in line for a chance to rebound. However, the 49ers managed to hold tight ends Greg Olsen and Jimmy Graham to a stat line of three receptions for 19 yards, exemplifying how teams tend to target tight ends a league-low 11.9-percent of the time against them. With bye weeks in full swing, Doyle may be one of your only options at the tight end position. However, owners would do well to look for alternatives with a run-heavy script meaning Doyle will be blocking more often than catching.
