Colts coach Chuck Pagano said the addition of Andre Johnson should take pressure off T.Y. Hilton.
With Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks fading fast, Hilton was Andrew Luck's no-doubt No. 1 receiver last season. He'll still occupy that role in 2015 but Johnson is dangerous enough to attract defenders, which means Hilton shouldn't see as many double-teams. For a wideout who relies on speed rather than physicality, that extra breathing room will be an enormous benefit. Just 25 years old, Hilton has a chance to actually improve on last year's 82-1,345-7 line. Mar 24 - 11:32 AM

T.Y. Hilton has re-hired Drew Rosenhaus as his agent.

Andrew Luck is the more ballyhooed Colt entering the final year of his rookie contract, but Hilton was the home run hit by GM Ryan Grigson in the third round of that 2012 draft. He's under contract for just one more season and eligible for an extension. Despite his small stature, Hilton can play on the outside much like Mike Wallace. The Colts may lock up both Luck and Hilton this offseason. Luck will be top priority. Hilton will likely be looking for close to $10 million annually.
Feb 17 - 9:47 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught one pass for 36 yards in Sunday's 45-7 AFC Championship Game loss at New England.

Instead of sticking Darrelle Revis on Hilton, the Patriots used Kyle Arrington and a safety over the top to shut him down. Hilton shouldn't hang his head as Bill Belichick defenses eliminate the opponent's top weapon weekly. Still, it's a disappointing end to a breakout season for Hilton, who cemented his "born playmaker" reputation by going 83-1,345-7 as Andrew Luck's No. 1 option. There's always going to be inconsistency when we're talking about a 5'9/178 wideout, but Hilton is unique player operating with a generational quarterback. He'll be a strong WR2 at worst in 2015, the final year of his rookie contract.
Jan 18 - 10:23 PM

T.Y. Hilton secured 4-of-9 targets for 72 yards in the Colts' Divisional Round win over the Broncos.

The Broncos oddly matched up Aqib Talib on Hilton -- rather than Chris Harris Jr. -- and T.Y. made them pay. Hilton's first catch went for 20 yards, beating Talib on an inside slant. Hilton again beat Talib late in the first quarter for a gain of 23. Hilton also drew a pass-interference flag on Talib early in the second quarter, setting up Dwayne Allen's TD. The Colts now head to Foxboro for the AFC title game. When the Patriots and Colts played during the regular season, New England primarily assigned slot CB Kyle Arrington to Hilton, with Darrelle Revis on Reggie Wayne. We'd expect Hilton to see more of Revis in the rematch.
Jan 11 - 7:57 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 6-of-14 targets for 103 yards in the Colts' Wild Card win over the Bengals.

Despite the 100-yard effort, it was a frustrating day for the Colts' No. 1 receiver. Looking gimpy early, Hilton committed no fewer than three drops, one of which would have gone for a long touchdown in the first quarter. He muffed a second potential score after the break. The good news is, Hilton was running free after initially appearing to be battling his bulky hamstring. He'll be ready to rock as Andrew Luck's top weapon for Indy's Divisional Round trip to Denver.
Jan 4 - 4:28 PM

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is practicing in full Wednesday.

Hilton played one half in Week 17 and emerged without any setbacks. He's ready to rock for Sunday's home game against Leon Hall, Terence Newman and the Bengals. When these two teams met in Indy Week 7, Hilton had 7-109-0 on nine targets as the Colts won 27-0.

T.Y. Hilton didn't catch a pass in one half of action during Sunday's Week 17 win at Tennessee.

Hilton looked healthy, but was covered well on each of his three targets. The Colts took away his helmet in the second half, ensuring they'll have their No. 1 wideout at 100 percent for next week's Wild Card game. The late-season injury hurt Hilton's fantasy owners badly, but he was a breakout stud as a third-year pro with 82-1,345-7.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 04:21:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is active and Dwayne Allen (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 game at Tennessee.

Even though the Colts have almost nothing to play for, Hilton is a go as they try to get their offense on track. It's unclear how long he'll play. Meanwhile, Allen's absence gives Coby Fleener a big boost. The rest of the Colts inactives: DB Sheldon Price, LB Jerrell Freeman, OL Joe Reitz, OL Gosder Cherilus, LB Bjoern Werner, DL Zach Kerr.

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is questionable for Week 17 against the Titans.

He's practiced all week and should see some action against Tennessee. The Colts already have the AFC South sewn up, so Hilton's snaps could be limited.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 01:04:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is practicing again Wednesday.

After not practicing at all last week and then watching the Colts offense fall flat at Dallas, Hilton has now practiced two straight days. He's on track to start at Tennessee Sunday. The bigger question is how motivated the Colts will be, as they're essentially locked into the AFC's No. 4 seed. For what it's worth, coach Chuck Pagano has said all his starters will play as he wants the offense to get some confidence back before the Wild Card round. Hilton is shaping up as a strong fantasy play.
Wed, Dec 24, 2014 12:16:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday.

Hilton did not practice at all last week, so this is a major step in the right direction. He's on track to play Sunday at Tennessee in a game that doesn't mean much for the Colts' playoff seeding, but is crucial to getting their sputtering offense on track. Coach Chuck Pagano has already stated that his starters will play. However, it's unclear how many snaps someone like Hilton, coming off an injury, will see.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 12:00:00 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Monday he expects T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) to return for Week 17 against the Titans.

The Colts are still in a position where they can't move much in the AFC playoff standings -- they're either the No. 3 or No. 4 seed, and can't clinch a first-round bye -- so they shouldn't play Hilton if he isn't at exactly 100 percent. They do likely want to enter the postseason playing well, and Hilton has carried the Indianapolis passing game throughout this year.
Mon, Dec 22, 2014 04:15:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is officially inactive for Week 16 against the Cowboys.

Hilton tested out his hamstring before the game, but the Colts eventually made the correct decision to sit their talented wide receiver. With the division locked up and a first-round bye a pipe dream, there is no reason to risk Hilton against Dallas. Donte Moncrief is a high-upside play against the Cowboys burnable defense. Colts also declared T Gosder Cherilus, G Joe Reitz, CB Jalil Brown, CB Sheldon Price, G Hugh Thornton and DT Montori Hughes inactive for Week 16.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 03:03:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) will try to play Week 16 against the Cowboys but is a "longshot."

Look for Hilton to test out his gimpy hammy in warmups, but we're not expecting Hilton to suit up for the 4:25 ET kickoff -- especially with the Colts having little to play for. Owners need to have other plans in place. "If he's not 100 percent, can't open it up and be TY, then there's no sense putting him out there," coach Chuck Pagano said. If Hilton ultimately doesn't play, Donte Moncrief will see an expanded role in two- and three-wide sets next to Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks. Moncrief is the preferred plug-n-play as he has the freshest legs and has out-snapped Nicks badly the last few weeks.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 09:22:00 AM

Coach Chuck Pagano said T.Y. Hilton (questionable, hamstring) will only play if he's 100 percent and can be himself.

Hilton didn't practice all week and is on the doubtful side of his questionable tag. He'll be a game-time decision, but it would be surprising if he plays. Donte Moncrief will see an expanded role opposite Reggie Wayne if Hilton is held out.
