The Colts are expected to retain Dwayne Allen for 2017.
Following the re-signing of Jack Doyle to a $19 million deal on Tuesday, there was some chatter about Allen's roster spot. Allen just signed a four-year, $29.4 million deal at this time last year. He went on to be vastly outplayed by Doyle in 2016 and again showed next to nothing as a pass catcher. Doyle has even surpassed Allen as the preferred inline blocker at tight end. Allen is more likely to be cut next year. He's looking like another mistake by ex-GM Ryan Grigson.

Dwayne Allen caught 3-of-3 targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.
The touchdown was Allen's sixth of the season, though three of them came in one game against the defense-less Jets. In the first season of a four-year, $29.4 million deal, Allen was a major disappointment, getting soundly out-played and produced by Jack Doyle. Allen did manage to stay relatively healthy, but now has 896 total receiving yards in four years since his promising rookie campaign. The light has turned out in Dynasty leagues.

Dwayne Allen caught 3-of-4 passes for 31 yards in Week 16 against the Raiders.
He didn't have any red-zone looks. Allen got most of his catches after Donte Moncrief left with a shoulder injury. He should see more targets if Moncrief doesn't play next week, but will remain heavily touchdown dependent.
