  • Colts' Kylen Granson: Catches one of two targets

    Granson caught one of his two targets for six yards during Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans.

    Granson hasn't been targeted more than twice in any of his 13 appearances this season, but he's recorded at least one catch in each of the last six games. Over that span, he's recorded seven receptions for 78 yards. Despite the consistent production, Granson likely remains a risky fantasy option as long as Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox are healthy.

  • Colts' Kylen Granson: Totals 22 yards in loss

    Granson hauled in both of his targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Granson hasn't been targeted more than twice in any of his first 12 appearances of the season, but he's recorded at least one catch in each of the last five games. During that time, the 23-year-old has secured six of seven targets for 72 yards.

  • Colts' Kylen Granson: Slightly involved versus Jaguars

    Granson secured his only target for 15 yards during Sunday's 23-17 win over Jacksonville.

    Granson has played a rotational role on offense all season, and he's now logged four straight games with a single target in each. The rookie fourth-round pick's development is coming along nicely, but he's not currently much of a candidate for fantasy relevance behind both Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox.

  • Colts' Kylen Granson: Two receptions Monday

    Granson had two receptions for 19 yards in Monday's loss at Baltimore.

    Granson played just eight snaps on offense, but he had two targets for a second consecutive week after none the first three games. While that won't make him relevant in most fantasy leagues, it shows the rookie's role in the offense could continue to grow.

  • Colts' Kylen Granson: Gets first NFL reception

    Granson had one reception for three yards on two targets in Sunday's win at Miami. It was his first career NFL reception.

    Granson saw his first sizeable playing time as Jack Doyle was likely limited by a sore back. Granson played on 30 of the offense's 71 snaps and went out on 18 routes. Doyle played just 21 snaps. While Granson didn't produce viable fantasy stats, his progress bears monitoring, as there were some reports during the preseason that he could be featured in the passing game. While that hasn't materialized yet, the rookie could see a larger role later in the season.

  • Colts' Kylen Granson: Minimal role on offense

    Granson did not have a target and played just seven snaps on offense in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

    Despite some reports from the preseason that he could be featured in the passing game, Granson went out for a pass on just two plays. He's a distant third option at tight end behind Mo Alie-Cox and Jack Doyle. The fourth-round 2021 draft pick is a work in progress who could move into a larger role later this season.

  • Colts' Kylen Granson: Modest production Friday

    Granson caught three of four targets for 23 yards in Friday's preseason win over the Lions.

    The 23-year-old tied for second on the Colts in targets on the night, but his longest grab went for only 10 yards as he worked with Jacob Eason and the first-team offense. There's been speculation Granson could have a bigger role than expected in the passing game even if he's only third on the depth chart at tight end, as the team has a track record of finding targets for multiple players at the position; however, the 2021 fourth-round pick is still a long shot to have much fantasy value.

  • Colts' Kylen Granson: Could be featured in passing game

    Granson will be featured in the Colts passing game if training camp is any indication, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.

    While this is an encouraging report, Granson hasn't been showcased in the preseason. He has two receptions on seven targets through two exhibitions while playing 42 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus. He's also behind both Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox on the depth chart. However, this report implies that Granson could be utilized in the Colts' passing game similar to how Trey Burton was deployed in 2020 when the Colts often utilized three tight ends, and he could therefore be a sleeper should Doyle or Alie-Cox miss time due to injury.

  • Colts' Kylen Granson: Strong impression this spring

    Granson made a strong impression in spring practices and could be utilized in the Colts' passing game similar to how Trey Burton was deployed in 2020, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports. "Kylen Granson is what we saw on tape. He's an explosive athlete," head coach Frank Reich said earlier in June. "We knew he was a real smart guy and he's picking up the offense real fast."

    The Colts selected Granson in the fourth round of the draft this spring. The rookie looks like he'll have a chance to carve out a role in the offense right away, but he's behind both Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox on the depth chart. Still, the Colts utilized three tight ends in the passing game last season, so room exists for Granson to have a role on offense.
