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.

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.
Jan 3 - 5:52 PM

T.Y. Hilton (calf) remained "limited" on Thursday.

The Colts appear to simply be managing Hilton's reps, but his status can't be taken for granted. With one of Stephen Morris, Josh Freeman or Ryan Lindley in line to start at quarterback, Hilton is a WR3 for the finale.

T.Y. Hilton caught 4-of-7 targets for 64 yards in the Colts' Week 16 win over the Dolphins.

It was a slow day for the Colts' passing attack as Matt Hasselbeck (arm) exited in the second quarter, and Charlie Whitehurst closed out the win. They combined for under 170 passing yards. Hilton did lead the team in targets. If Andrew Luck (kidney) returns for Week 17, Hilton will be a value play in DFS against the Titans.

Colts OC Rob Chudzinski said the offense is "navigating through some challenging situations."

T.Y. Hilton called out Chud for being too conservative earlier this week, but the coordinator correctly points out the offense has some limitations with a banged-up 40-year-old quarterback attempting to stay alive behind a bad offensive line. Even so, it would be safe to expect Chud to dial up some deep shots to Hilton after the receiver went public with his frustrations this week.

T.Y. Hilton thinks the Colts should "start taking shots down the field and loosen the defense up some."

"You know, Donte (Moncrief), me, Phil (Dorsett), we’re fast guys and we’re not going down the field how we’re supposed to be doing," said Hilton. "The throws have been there, but we just haven’t been calling (them)." Hilton is clearly frustrated with his role in the Colts' passing game. Instead of stretching the field like they did with Andrew Luck earlier this year, the Colts have reverted to a conservative dink-and-dunk approach with veteran Matt Hasselbeck calling the shots. Hilton has been held without a touchdown during Indy's three-game losing streak.

T.Y. Hilton caught 3-of-5 passes for 29 yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Texans.

Hilton was a non-factor in a game Matt Hasselbeck threw for 147 yards. He couldn't get anything going downfield against the Texans secondary. Hilton will be a high-upside WR2 if Andrew Luck returns in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 05:05:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 4-of-7 targets for 132 yards in the Colts' Week 14 loss to the Jaguars.

The yardage was Hilton's second most of the season. He hooked up with Matt Hasselbeck for two long first half completions, but the Colts' entire offense went in the tank after the break. Absent a Week 15 return from Andrew Luck, Hilton will be a boom-or-bust, lower-end WR2 for the second week of the fantasy playoffs.

T.Y. Hilton caught 3-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Colts' Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

Hilton fell victim to gameflow on a night Matt Hasselbeck had three turnovers and threw for 169 yards. His five targets were behind only Coby Fleener. Hilton should have an easier time against Jacksonville's bottom-ten secondary in Week 14.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 12:39:00 AM

T.Y. Hilton caught 6-of-12 targets for 95 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' Week 12 win over the Bucs.

Hilton beat Bucs CB Sterling Moore for a 19-yard TD, and later scored in the fourth quarter to ice the win. He led the Colts in targets and had better chemistry with Matt Hasselbeck. With plus matchups over the next month, Hilton has potential to put up some big games. He'll get the Steelers' bottom-five secondary in Week 13.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 05:18:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton caught 2-of-4 targets for 21 yards in the Colts' Week 11 win over the Falcons.

Hilton ran most of his routes against shutdown Falcons LCB Desmond Trufant, and no Colts player cleared 50 receiving yards on the day. Expect a bounce-back performance from Hilton when the Colts take on the Buccaneers next. Aside from today, Hilton has been mostly solid with Matt Hasselbeck under center this year.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Monday that T.Y. Hilton (foot) emerged from Sunday's upset of Denver "fine."

Hilton woke up Sunday morning not even expecting to play, but he looked no worse for wear on the field, securing 5-of-6 targets for 82 yards. Hilton now gets a Week 10 bye to get his ankle all the way back to 100 percent. The Colts' passing game has a great-looking schedule the rest of the way, consisting of Atlanta, Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, Houston, and Miami in Weeks 11-16.

T.Y. Hilton caught 5-of-6 targets for 82 yards Week 9 against the Broncos.

Originally told his foot would keep him our four weeks, Hilton reportedly did not think he would play Sunday morning, but he suited up and looked to be completely unencumbered by the injury. His first catch of the game was a 28-yard beauty from Andrew Luck, and Hilton streaked down the sideline for 30 yards on the Colts' second touchdown drive. Hilton has scored just three times through nine games, but has at least 70 yards receiving in all but three contests and is averaging 78 a game. He will be a high-end WR2 against the Falcons after the bye.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 07:45:00 PM

T.Y. Hilton (foot) is active for Week 9 against the Broncos.

Hilton did not practice all week and was reportedly in a boot as late as Thursday. It is possible Hilton pulls a John Brown and does not play any snaps despite the active tag. In a bad matchup with an extremely uncertain workload, Hilton can still be safely left on fantasy benches. Indianapolis declared WR Phillip Dorsett, ILB Nate Irving, OG Todd Herremans, OT Denzelle Good, DL Billy Winn, CB Josh Thomas and RB Josh Robinson inactive for Week 9.
