T.Y. Hilton caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards in the Colts' Week 10 loss to the Steelers.
The complete dud of a day came even though Jacoby Brissett connected on a pair of 60-plus yard touchdowns, and the Steelers lost top CB Joe Haden to a broken leg in the first half. Hilton was been the ultimate boom-or-bust WR1 this season. He'll offer upside for Week 12 when the Colts come off their bye against the Titans. Nov 12 - 5:01 PM

T.Y. Hilton (groin) is active for Week 10 against the Steelers.

Hilton's Week 10 status was never in doubt. His matchup is a bigger concern than his health. Everyone knows the upside Hilton offers at home, but he's a boom-or-bust WR2 for this one. Inactive for the Colts are WR Kamar Aiken, RB Matt Jones, OLB John Simon, CB D.J. White, OT Le'Raven Clark, OT Tyreek Burwell and OT Isaiah Williams.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports T.Y. Hilton (questionable, groin) will play Week 10 against the Steelers.

After suffering an injury early in the week, Hilton will play. Coming off a monstrous 175-yard effort in Week 9, expectations should be tempered against the Steelers tough defense where he'll be a borderline WR1.

T.Y. Hilton (groin) is questionable for Week 10 against the Steelers.

Quincy Wilson (knee) is also questionable while Kamar Aiken has been ruled out with a hamstring injury. Hilton incurred a groin injury earlier this week and has been a limited participant at practice the past two days. He should be out there on Sunday but could be at risk of a setback. He's coming off a 175-yard game against Houston in Week 9.
Nov 10 - 3:29 PM

T.Y. Hilton (groin) was limited at Thursday's practice.

It's a new injury for Hilton, who was not listed on Wednesday's practice report. Hilton was brilliant in Week 9, erupting for 175 yards and two touchdowns in a win over Houston. It's probably too early to speculate on his status for Week 10 against Pittsburgh, though mid-week additions to the injury report are always concerning.
Nov 9 - 4:27 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 5-of-9 targets for 175 yards and a two touchdowns in the Colts' Week 9 win over the Texans.

Held to five catches for 61 yards over his past three games, Hilton erupted for his third 150-yard effort of the season. Touchdown No. 1 was a perfectly-delivered, 45-yard deep strike from Jacoby Brissett on play action. The second was a drag route Hilton turned into an 80-yard score when he avoided contact from CB Kareem Jackson by the narrowest of margins. Hilton is headed home for Week 10, but will be doing battle with the Steelers' elite defense. He will find himself on the WR1/2 borderline for that one.
Nov 5 - 4:34 PM

Coach Chuck Pagano admitted the offense has to find ways to get T.Y. Hilton the ball more.

Hilton is coming off yet another dreadful game against the Bengals last week, catching two balls for 15 yards. He's been held to 30 yards or less in four of the last five games. Hilton has had two monster games at home this season -- 7-153-1 vs. Cleveland and 7-177 vs. San Francisco -- but has otherwise been a non-factor. The squeaky wheel could get the grease this week back in a dome against a Texans pass defense that just got lit up in Seattle and has very little pass rush. Hilton is a must-start in season-long leagues with all the players on bye this week.
Nov 1 - 12:25 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Colts are getting "several calls" from teams interested in trading for T.Y. Hilton.

However, Mortensen adds "it would take something big" to get Hilton and calls it "highly unlikely." With less than 24 hours before Tuesday's 4 PM ET trade deadline, the Patriots and 49ers hooked up on a blockbuster involving Jimmy Garoppolo while the Seahawks traded for Texans LT Duane Brown. Hilton is probably the biggest fish left available. GM Chris Ballard would be smart to build for the future. This team is going nowhere with or without Hilton on the roster.
Oct 30 - 8:41 PM

PFT's Mike Florio reports the Colts are "willing to move" T.Y. Hilton ahead of Tuesday's 4 PM ET trade deadline.

Hilton is under contract through 2020 at salaries of $8 million this year, $11 million in 2018, $13 million in 2019, and more than $14 million in 2020. GM Chris Ballard isn't the one who drafted or extended Hilton, so there's some chatter Hilton could be available at the right price. But word is Hilton wants to stay in Indy, and he won't renegotiate his contract. Ballard also doesn't want to just give Hilton away. It would likely take an early mid-round pick. Hilton is having a career-worst season without Andrew Luck (shoulder) and has just 61 yards over his last three.
Oct 29 - 6:27 PM

T.Y. Hilton managed just two catches for 15 yards on seven targets Sunday in the Colts’ Week 8 loss to the Bengals.

Both of his catches came in the first half. It was a brutal day for Hilton, who committed an ugly drop in the second quarter and couldn’t haul in a deep pass on play-action from Jacoby Brissett in the third quarter. In Hilton’s defense, it would have been a near-impossible catch in double-coverage. With Hilton bottled up, Brissett mostly settled for short check-downs to tight end Jack Doyle. Hilton led the NFL in receiving yards with Andrew Luck under center last year but has become almost unusable in fantasy with a combined five catches for 61 yards and no touchdowns over his last three games. We’re not expecting much from Hilton, even against a beat-up Texans defense in Week 9.
Oct 29 - 5:58 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 2-of-8 targets for 27 yards in Week 7 against the Jaguars.

The Colts planned to get Hilton more involved this week, but couldn't get anything going against Jacksonville's elite secondary. Hilton's now been held under 30 yards the last two games. He won't be more than a boom/bust WR3 for Week 8.
Oct 22 - 4:37 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said the team needs to "scheme better" to get T.Y. Hilton more involved.

This is likely in response to Hilton's one-catch, 19-yard performance on four targets Monday at Tennessee. Hilton's results have been all over the map this year, ranging from 19 yards in Week 6 to 177 against the Niners in Week 5. That sort of volatility is to be expected with Jacoby Brissett under center, but the fact remains that Hilton is on pace for only 107 targets, which is 49 fewer than he saw last season. Hilton could get the squeaky wheel treatment on Sunday, but will be difficult to trust in a tough matchup with Jacksonville.
Oct 20 - 1:25 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught just 1-of-4 targets for 19 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

The Titans came into this one bleeding fantasy points and production to opposing receivers, but Hilton was unable to get much going at all. He's had two massive games at home this season -- 7-153-1 vs. CLE and 7-177 vs. SF -- but has been real quiet on the road with 3-57-0, 3-30-0, and now 1-19-0 lines. His home-road splits have been a story his entire career, and things only get worse without Andrew Luck in the lineup. The Colts head back out on the road in Week 7 against Jacksonville's No. 1 pass defense. Hilton will be a borderline WR3/4 for that matchup.
Oct 16 - 11:53 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 7-of-9 targets for 177 yards in the Colts' 26-23, Week 5 win over the 49ers.

He should have had an even bigger day but flat-out dropped what should have been a gain of 40-50 yards in the first half and then was unable to hang onto a pass at the goal line on a potential short touchdown. Those were the two targets Hilton didn't corral, as he was running free behind the defense a lot of the day. Hilton has long been much better at home. He and the Colts will head on the road to Tennessee next Monday night. Andrew Luck (shoulder) isn't expected to be back in time. Hilton will be more of a WR3 in Week 6.
Oct 8 - 4:44 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 3-of-6 targets for 30 yards in Week 4 against Seattle.

It's a step back from last week's 7/153/1 line. Hilton drew a lot of Richard Sherman in coverage and couldn't get anything going down field. It the third time he's been held under 60 yards this year. Playing without Andrew Luck, Hilton is on pace for just 68 catches and four touchdowns.
