Colts' Will Mallory: Flashes receiving skills as rookie
Mallory (hamstring) drew one target in Saturday's 23-19 loss versus the Texans but did not haul it in.
Over 12 games in his rookie season, Mallory recorded 18 receptions for 207 yards on 26 targets. At 6-foot-4, 239 pounds, he profiled more as oversized wide receiver than traditional tight end. That's exactly how the Colts utilized him in 2023, and at least from an efficiency standpoint, he fared fairly well.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Won't return to Saturday's game
Mallory hurt his hamstring in Saturday's contest against Houston and has been ruled out from returning.
It's unclear when Mallory suffered the injury, but he was ruled out during the second quarter. The rookie didn't catch his only target prior to his departure. The Colts will be down to Kylen Granson and Mo Alie-Cox at tight end for the remainder of the matchup.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Just one reception in win
Mallory had one reception for 19 yards on his only target in Sunday's win over the Raiders.
Mallory played just nine snaps on offense and went out on six routes, a week after he had four receptions for 47 yards on four targets. With Indy playing with a lead most of the game, Mallory was sidelined for better blocking tight ends.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Four receptions in loss
Mallory had four receptions for 47 yards on four targets in Sunday's 29-10 loss at Atlanta.
The Colts featured Mallory and fellow tight end Kylen Granson (five receptions for 62 yards) more prominently in the passing game with top target Michael Pittman sidelined with a concussion. The duo were the top two Colts in receiving yards, which is more of a sign of how the Indianapolis passing game struggled. Mallory played on 27 of the offense's 71 snaps, running routes on 22 of those plays. In addition to Mallory and Granson (28 snaps), Drew Ogletree (17 snaps) and Mo Alie-Cox (19 snaps) also saw action at tight end. The Colts' tendency to use a messy four-man rotation at tight end makes it difficult to count on Mallory for fantasy purposes, even coming off a strong outing in Week 16.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: No receptions in win
Mallory did not have a catch or target in Saturday's win over Pittsburgh.
Just when it looked like Mallory may emerge as the top receiving tight end in the offense with nine receptions the prior three games, he fell to fourth in playing time at the position. Drew Ogletree played on 38 of the offense's 67 snaps with Mo Alie-Cox followed with 35, Kylen Granson played 20 and Will Mallory logged eight. Indy's distribution of tight end targets in the passing game changes almost randomly each week and is divided up among up to four players, making none much of an option for most fantasy formats....

Colts' Will Mallory: Five receptions in loss
Mallory had five receptions for 46 yards on five targets in Sunday's loss at Cincinnati.
Mallory played fewer snaps and ran fewer routes than Kylen Granson but had a bigger game as a pass catcher. The Colts spread out playing time fairly evenly among tight ends, as Mallory played on 20 of the offense's 62 snaps, while starter Granson played on 24 snaps, Drew Ogletree played on 17 snaps, and Mo Alie-Cox played on 19 snaps (and caught a TD). While Mallory is trending upward with nine receptions in his last three games, it's very hard to predict which Colts tight end will be productive each week.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Two receptions in win
Mallory had two receptions for four yards on four targets in Sunday's overtime win at Tennessee.
A week after being a starter, Mallory was fourth among Colts tight ends in playing time with 13 snaps on offense. All four tight ends (Kylen Granson, Drew Ogletree and Mo Alie-Cox) went on between 12 to 13 routes. It's hard to forecast any of them having consistent roles in the passing game as a result....

Colts' Will Mallory: Gets start at TE
Mallory started at tight end and had two receptions for 29 yards on three targets in Sunday's 27-20 win over Tampa Bay.
Mallory was a surprise starter since he's been inactive most weeks. He led the Indy tight ends in routes run (21 routes to Kylen Granson's 16 and Mo Alie-Cox's 13), though he was third at the position in scrimmage snaps (27 snaps to 34 for Alie-Cox and 31 for Granson). No tight end in Indianapolis has much fantasy value given how rarely they are utilized in the passing offense and how the targets are split three ways, but it's worth monitoring whether Mallory's increased usage is a trend....

Colts' Will Mallory: Inactive Sunday
Mallory (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, JJ Stankevitz of the Colts' official site reports.
With Kylen Granson back in the mix after missing two games, Mallory will be the odd man out in a Colts' Week 9 tight end corps that also includes Drew Ogletree and Mo Alie-Cox. Through four contests to date, Mallory has caught three of his six targets for 55 yards.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Just one reception
Mallory had one reception for six yards on two targets in Sunday's loss to New Orleans.
Mallory played on 15 of of the offense's 71 snaps. He went out for a pass on all 15 of his snaps, which was the second-most routes among the tight ends (Drew Ogletree had 20 and Mo Alie-Cox had 13). However, that usage doesn't translate to many fantasy points, as the Colts don't use tight ends much in the passing game and divide the targets among multiple players at the position.... See More ...

Colts' Will Mallory: Plays just nine snaps
Mallory did not have a reception on his lone target in Sunday's loss to Cleveland.
He played nine snaps on offense as Drew Ogletree started at tight end with Kylen Granson out with a concussion and Jelani Woods (hamstring) still on injured reserve. Mo Alie-Cox had the only reception among tight ends in the loss, as they were needed as blockers against Cleveland's strong pass rush. Mallory is inactive most games and could return to the bench if either Granson or Woods is able to return next week.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Stuck on bench
Mallory was a healthy inactive for Sunday's loss to the Rams.
Mallory played 11 offensive snaps in Week 2 against the Texans when he caught two passes for 49 yards, but he's been inactive the last two games.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Inactive Sunday
Mallory is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Ravens.
Mallory is a healthy scratch for Week 3 with Andrew Ogletree returning from concussion protocols. Mallory played 11 offensive snaps in Week 2 against the Texans when he caught two passes for 49 yards.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Two receptions in NFL debut
Mallory had two receptions for 49 yards on two targets in Sunday's win at Houston.
Mallory was a healthy inactive Week 1, but the 2023 fifth-round draft pick got playing time with Andrew Ogletree (concussion/coach's decision) out. He played on 11 of the offense's 57 snaps compared to 37 snaps for Kylen Granson and 23 snaps for Mo Alie-Cox. Still, Mallory had a rapport with backup Gardner Minshew, and it's possible he could become the breakout receiver of a deep tight-end mix. However, it's more likely none of the Colts tight ends get enough work in the passing game to be viable in most fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Available to make NFL debut
Mallory is active for Sunday's matchup against the Texans.
A rookie fifth-round pick, Mallory was a healthy scratch for Week 1, but with Andrew Ogletree (concussion/coach's decision) out, he'll have a chance to make his NFL debut versus Houston. Starting tight end Kylen Granson may be limited due to a recent hamstring injury, so Mallory could see a handful of snaps in a depth role behind Granson and Mo Alie-Cox.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Won't debut Week 1
Mallory (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Mallory was taken by the Colts in the fifth round of the 2023 NFL Draft. His next opportunity to make his NFL debut will come in Week 2 against the Texans on Sept. 17.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Will Mallory: Two receptions in preseason debut
Mallory had two receptions for 29 yards on two targets in Saturday's preseason win over Chicago.
Mallory missed the preseason opener with a hamstring injury but had a nice showing working with the second- and third-string units. The 2023 fifth-round draft pick faces an uphill battle to win a roster spot amid a crowded tight end position, but he could open the season on the active roster with Mo Alie-Cox (ankle), Jelani Woods (hamstring) and Andrew Ogletree (knee) all sidelined....
