Doyle continues to be efficient in the passing game, as his 86.7-percent catch rate (13 of 15 targets) is the best rate for tight ends with at least 11 targets. He also got more targets than Dwayne Allen, as the duo will likely split opportunities in the passing attack.
Indy's offense had prominently featured three-receiver sets but that could change with Moncrief hurt and little experience among the reserve receivers. Doyle has seven receptions and two touchdowns this season and may continue to be a steady part of the passing game as a result.
Doyle showed his Week 1 performance wasn't a fluke. While he didn't get two touchdows like last week, he still had five targets, as it looks like he'll remain a consistent part of the passing attack and perhaps take some targets away from Dwayne Allen.
Doyle got significant playing time, playing 39 of 70 snaps on offense, so his production may not be a total fluke. While he may not continue as a red zone threat, the
Doyle should be set to make the final roster and enter the season as the No. 2 tight end. However, he could be bypassed on the depth chart by Erik Swoope as the top receiving tight end if Dwayne Allen were to get hurt.
