T.Y. Hilton caught 8-of-11 targets for 174 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' 26-22, Week 3 win over the Chargers.
Hilton did battle against Chargers rising star CB Jason Verrett for much of the day, but got the better of him when all was said and done. Hilton made a slick grab deep down the sideline with Verrett draped on him in the third quarter, and then accounted for the game-winning 63-yard score late in the fourth quarter, running right by the defense down the middle. The knee "injury" that had Hilton listed questionable proved to be a non-issue. Hilton will be a WR1/2 next week when the Colts travel to London to face the Jaguars. Sep 25 - 7:46 PM

Date:

T.Y. Hilton (knee) is active for Week 3 against the Chargers.

Hilton was added to the injury report Thursday and missed Friday's practice, but it all seemed precautionary. Look for him to be locked up with budding star CB Jason Verrett on the outside much of the day.
Sep 25 - 3:10 PM

T.Y. Hilton (questionable, knee) was held out of Colts practice on Friday.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Hilton is just "sore," and was "rested" on the last day of the practice week. "He's going to be fine," Pagano promised. Hilton was added to the injury report on Thursday due to a limited practice. It sounds like he will be starting versus San Diego.
Sep 23 - 12:54 PM

T.Y. Hilton was added to the Colts' injury report Thursday, getting in a limited practice with a knee issue.

A similar move caused alarm last week, but it turns out this is just going to be Hilton's ritual for the time being. Hilton was actually held out last Thursday before ultimately starting against the Broncos. He's a solid WR2 for a decent matchup with the Chargers. Jason Verrett is unlikely to follow Hilton into the slot.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Hilton is second in targets (23) and tied for fourth in red-zone targets (4) in the early going, which sets him up for a huge afternoon against the Chargers. He's going to avoid Verrett while he's lined up in the slot, and with Donte Moncrief out there is little reason to expect his target total to drop. This contest is one of the better targets of the week on the fast Indy track. Hilton is playable in any format.
Sep 22 - 4:32 PM

T.Y. Hilton secured just four-of-11 targets for 41 yards Sunday in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

Predictably, Hilton struggled to find any separation against Denver’s elite secondary. Hilton has now gone his last seven regular season games without a touchdown. That’s not a great sign but at least he’s seen 23 targets over his last two outings. Hilton will have another challenging matchup against Chargers corner Jason Verrett in Week 3, though anything is better than what he just faced.
Sep 18 - 8:21 PM

T.Y. Hilton (knee) returned to practice Friday.

After being added to the injury report Thursday and sitting out practice, it's a good sign for Hilton's Week 2 status that he's back on the field Friday. This is a tough date against the Broncos, but Hilton is still in the WR2/3 mix.
Sep 16 - 11:20 AM

T.Y. Hilton was added to the Colts' injury report on Thursday, missing practice with a knee issue.

It's concerning on two fronts, as Hilton wasn't on Wednesday's injury report and was "DNP" instead of "limited." Typically players who get hurt mid-practice are listed as limited. Perhaps it was simply a maintenance day for a previously-undisclosed minor issue, but Hilton owners can't take his Week 2 status for granted until we get an update. That might not come until Friday.
Sep 15 - 4:34 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 6-of-12 targets for 79 yards in the Colts' Week 1 loss to the Lions.

The bad news is this isn't quite what fantasy owners would have liked in a game where Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes and for nearly 400 yards. The good news is Hilton remained the Colts' clear-cut No. 1 receiver, drawing a team-high 12 targets while Donte Moncrief only saw seven. The sledding for Hilton will get tougher when the Colts face Chris Harris' Broncos in Week 2.
Sep 11 - 7:58 PM

Colts OC Rob Chudzinski said the offense will focus more on short passing and getting receivers in position to create yards after the catch.

Despite being one of the best deep-ball threats in the league, it is a welcome change for T.Y. Hilton. "We’ve got fast guys," Chudzinski said. "The main thing with fast guys is to get them the ball in space and let them work." Like Hilton, No. 2 receiver Donte Moncrief and sophomore Phillip Dorsett have the ability to create yards themselves, and getting the ball in their hands quickly keeps Andrew Luck from taking a beating behind a suspect line. Indy will certainly still throw deep, but it looks like the offense could change significantly this season.
Sep 10 - 9:54 AM

T.Y. Hilton caught 3-of-5 targets for 38 yards in the Colts' third preseason game.

Hilton played a little under two quarters, while Donte Moncrief got run into the second half. Andrew Luck and Hilton looked to be in sync as expected. Although Moncrief is the better value in fantasy drafts, Hilton's raw stats projection is higher. He's worth targeting as a borderline WR1.
Aug 27 - 9:27 PM

The Indianapolis Star calls T.Y. Hilton the "most outstanding player" of Colts camp.

The paper agrees with Andrew Luck's assessment. Hilton offers major upside at his current WR17 price.
Aug 11 - 5:32 PM

Andrew Luck said T.Y. Hilton has "probably the best player on the field" during camp.

Hilton has earned consistent praise from all corners, so Luck's comments come as little surprise. Hilton "disappointed" with a 69/1,124/5 line last season, but his stats with Luck in the lineup would have put him right on pace for the WR12 numbers he posted in 2014. With Luck back healthy and the offensive line poised to improve, Hilton should return back-end WR1 value again this season.
Aug 11 - 10:32 AM

According to the Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer, T.Y. Hilton has been the best player at Colts' OTAs and "could be in line for a career year."

Receivers and defensive backs shine the most in non-contact settings, so it's not surprising Hilton is standing out. But Hilton is coming off a down season where his deep speed was rendered useless half the year by Matt Hasselbeck's noodle arm. The entire Colts offense is flying a bit under the radar.
Jun 13 - 7:22 PM

T.Y. Hilton said he's "more motivated, more hungry" entering this season.

The Indy Star says Hilton already looks "in midseason form" at OTAs. "I've never seen this guy practice as fast as he's practicing right now," coach Chuck Pagano said. "He’s done it day in and day out." Hilton had a bit of a down year last season, posting a three-year low with 69 catches, but was able to turn them into 1,124 yards and five scores, playing half the season with Matt Hasselbeck and Ryan Lindley. With Andrew Luck back healthy, Hilton is shaping up as a value pick in the third round of 12-team drafts.
May 25 - 10:58 AM

T.Y. Hilton caught 4-of-7 targets for 44 yards in Week 17 against the Titans.

Hilton didn’t live up to his draft position, but managed over 1,000 yards for the third straight season. He was inconsistent even when Andrew Luck was starting, and finished the year out as a boom/bust option. Hilton led the Colts with 125 targets, but had only five touchdowns. After signing a six-year extension last offseason, he'll return as the No. 1 option and top deep threat. Hilton has potential to be overvalued in 2016 drafts.
