Alie-Cox hauled in seven of his 13 targets for 133 yards and two touchdowns during the regular season.
Alie-Cox played only nine games in 2018, and saw most of his offensive workload only after Jack Doyle (hip) landed on injured reserve in Week 12. Even then, the 25-year-old was mostly used as a blocker behind top tight end Eric Ebron. Alie-Cox has one year remaining on his contract, and appears likely to return to Indianapolis in a reserve role in 2019.
Alie-Cox hasn't produced much fantasy value since he hauled in a couple touchdowns midseason. The most notable part of his game Sunday was that he played a significant portion of the offensive snaps once Eric Ebron (concussion) exited. Alie-Cox used primarily as a blocker but could see a slight fantasy uptick if he can garner some more targets when on the field. If Ebron is unable to return for Week 17 look for Alie-Cox to again see a larger role on offense.
Alie-Cox failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 23-0 win over the Cowboys.
Alie-Cox returned after missing the previous three games and led Colts' tight ends by playing 40 of 72 offensive snaps. The 25-year-old outsnapped starter Eric Ebron 40-38, but with the team bleeding the clock with the run game in the second half it's hardly an indication of changing roles. Alie-Cox appears entrenched as the Indianapolis' No. 2 tight end but holds little fantasy value in the low-volume role.
Alie-Cox (calf) no longer has an injury designation and will play Sunday versus the Cowboys.
Alie-Cox sat out the last three games but will gear up for his Week 15 return. The 25-year-old has six catches for 112 yards and two touchdowns this year and will slot in as the No. 2 tight end behind Eric Ebron. He's a low-volume player but the Colts use tight ends enough in the red zone that he could be good for a score.
Alie-Cox (calf) returned to practice Wednesday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.
Alie-Cox has been coming into his own prior to sustaining a calf injury back in Week 12. Having missed consecutive weeks, it's tough to predict whether the rookie will be held to a snap limit during Sunday's game. As for now, a return to the practice field is a step in the right direction.
