2018

2017

The former basketball player will take on a larger role in 2017 with Dwayne Allen now in New England. Swoope will now push for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind Jack Doyle and while he primarily served as a blocker last season, the 25-year-old seems likely to be more incorporated into pass-catching responsibilities this season. At 6-foot-5, Swoope represents a large target that could be of particular value in the red zone.

2016

Swoope, a former University of Miami basketball player, figures to get a chance to become the No. 2 tight end for the Colts following the offseason departure of Coby Fleener. However, Jack Doyle waits in the wings, and the two will compete for playing time behind entrenched-starter Dwayne Allen. The bottom line: Swoope's fantasy value hinges on his depth chart rank, but, if given the chance, he could emerge as an option in deep or 2-TE fantasy leagues given the pass-happy nature of the Colts' offense.

2015

The 6-5, 220-pound Swoope, who played college basketball for the University of Miami, signed a contract with the Colts as an undrafted free agent and spent the full season on the practice squad. The Colts are hoping they can have the same success of turning a top college basketball player into a tight end along the lines of Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates. However, it's unlikely he'll have any role in the offense as Indy has a deep receiver corps and two strong pass catching tight ends.

2014

Swoope, who played college basketball for the University of Miami, signed a contract with the Colts as an undrafted free agent. At 6-5, 220, the Colts are hoping they can have the same success of turning a top college basketball player into a tight end along the lines of Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates. Swoope didn't play football in college and hasn't played organized football at any level. After not cracking the 53-man roster, the best-case scenario is likely that he sticks on the practice squad and can develop into a viable football player in 2015.
