T.Y. Hilton caught 3-of-6 targets for 14 yards in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Texans.
Hilton was clearly not on the same page with Jacoby Brissett for large chunks of the season; he had four 100-yard games scattered around eight other games of 30 yards or fewer. Andrew Luck not being healthy obviously played a major role in Hilton's down season that sees him finish with a 57-966-4 line, his first year under 1,000 yards since his 2012 rookie season. Hilton is under contract through 2020, but all of his guaranteed money is up and there were trade rumors swirling around Halloween's deadline this year. GM Chris Ballard didn't draft or pay Hilton, so it's possible the Colts look for a true No. 1 alpha-dog wideout this offseason. Hilton is a fine 1B or high-end No. 2, but he's not a guy that's going to win in contested situations at 5'9/180. Ballard may choose to blow this whole offense up and start over with a healthy Luck.

T.Y. Hilton caught 6-of-12 targets for 100 yards in the Colts' Week 16 loss to the Ravens.

The 100-yard effort was just Hilton's fourth of 2017, and first in six games. He could have had a bigger day, but Jacoby Brissett was scattershot in the rain. Hilton needs 48 yards in Week 17 to post his fifth-straight 1,000-yard season. The speed demon desperately needs Andrew Luck to return healthy for 2018.

T.Y. Hilton caught 5-of-7 targets for 41 yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Broncos.

It looked like it might be an early night for Hilton after he was writhing around with a right hand injury early in the second quarter, but he ended up missing only a handful of plays. The yards were actually his third most across his past nine games. He will be a big-play reliant WR3 against the Ravens' Jimmy Smith-less secondary in Week 16.

T.Y. Hilton caught 2-of-4 targets for 20 yards in Week 14 against Buffalo.

Hilton fell victim to weather conditions in a game the Colts attempted just 22 passes despite going deep into overtime. He tied for the team lead in targets with Chester Rogers. Hilton has been held under 60 yards in four straight weeks. He'll have another shy-away matchup with the Broncos on Thursday night.

T.Y. Hilton caught 3-of-6 targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 13 loss to the Jaguars.

Hilton was tied for second on the team in targets behind WR Donte Moncrief. His touchdown came on a crossing route on 4th down where he beat the corner badly and sprinted past everyone else for a touchdown. Hilton will have an easier matchup against Buffalo in Week 14 after lining up against Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey in Week 13.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 04:20:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton managed two catches for 15 yards on five targets in the Colts' Week 12 loss to the Titans.

Jacoby Brissett had Hilton open for a first-quarter touchdown, but didn't pull the trigger and the Colts settled for a field goal. Brissett also tried to get the ball to Hilton deep down the sideline in the third quarter, but the pass sailed too long and out of reach. Hilton was otherwise quiet, usually drawing coverage from Titans rookie CB Adoree Jackson. The Colts get a tougher pass-defense matchup in Week 13 against the Jaguars.

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.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 05:01:00 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.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 08:02:00 AM

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.
Fri, Nov 10, 2017 03:29:00 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.

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.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 04:34:00 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.

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.

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.
