Kylen Granson
23-Year-Old Tight EndTE
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Granson, who the Colts took in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, profiles as an athletic, field-stretching tight end. As a rookie, though, he's set to work behind Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox. As a result, immediate fantasy relevance shouldn't be counted on for the 6-2, 242-pounder out of SMU, who's essentially the replacement for fellow undersized tight end Trey Burton. Read Past Outlooks

Minimal role on offense
TEIndianapolis Colts
September 13, 2021
Granson did not have a target and played just seven snaps on offense in Sunday's loss to Seattle.
ANALYSIS
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.

June 30, 2021
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."
