Route Runner, Run Blocker, Edge Setter, Good Hands
Struggles to get off press coverage, can't play well on the outside
Doyle has been one of the best targets for Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett these past few years, and ever since the great Dallas Clark left the team. However, Doyle can help the running game and can set an edge as well.
He works best lined up on the left with Castonzo and getting a chip on a pass-rusher before he runs his route; not to mention he runs incredible routes. Even though he’s a little slow, he makes up for it in route running and being a leader on this team. The NFL is much more than a players’ league; it’s also about leadership qualities in the locker room and off the field too.
On 39 targets he’s caught 30 for 304 yards and 3 touchdowns with a 10.1 average. While not lighting up the scoreboard, he makes up for it in his contributions to the running game. The Reich offense is built on a strong running game and play-action passing to make the linebackers come up from coverage and forcing the ball in the middle against the Cover 2 defense.
However, Doyle does great on crossing routes and what’s most important is his aggressive play. He doesn’t just go out of bounds but rather he makes contact with the defender and uses his body to shield the ball from the defender.
Doyle is another must-sign free agent before he hits the open market. There are teams that need a tight end and would love to sign him. Teams like New England, Denver, and the Titans come to mind and would pay top dollar for him.
