Fantasy Impact:

With Hilton inactive, Donte Moncrief draws the start and is a fantasy WR2 start with Reggie Wayne (PPR) and Hakeem Nicks having Sneaky Start appeal. Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen also get a bump. Andrew Luck's ranking takes a slight hit with Hilton out, but he has enough weapons and should be able to manufacture plenty of fantasy points against Dallas.

Pagano: 'Don't count T.Y. Hilton out'

Saturday, December 20, 2014, 11:27am

Indianapolis Star - [Full Article]

It was pointed out to Colts HC Chuck Pagano that players who don't practice at all during a game week almost never play on Sunday. But Pagano was adamant he's not ruling T.Y. Hilton out.

"For some," Pagano responded. "This guy is pretty special. Don't count him out."

Fantasy Impact:

As we reported yesterday, those around the team consider him doubtful even though his official status is questionable. If he’s out, Donte Moncrief becomes a fantasy WR2 with Reggie Wayne (PPR) and Hakeem Nicks having Sneaky Start appeal. Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen would also get a bump. Andrew Luck’s ranking takes a slight hit with Hilton out, but he has enough weapons and should be able to manufacture plenty of fantasy points against Dallas.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 16. The beat writers are describing Hilton as doubtful, though he’s officially questionable. We currently do not expect him to play, since Indianapolis doesn’t have a whole lot to play for. If he’s out, Donte Moncrief becomes a fantasy WR2 with Reggie Wayne (PPR) and Hakeem Nicks having Sneaky Start appeal. Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen would also get a bump. Andrew Luck’s ranking takes a slight hit with Hilton out, but he has enough weapons and should be able to manufacture plenty of fantasy points against Dallas.

Friday, December 19, 2014, 6:02pm

Colts WR Reggie Wayne (not injury related, probable) missed practice Friday and is probable for Week 16. Wayne is probably just getting some rest. He is a sneaky PPR play if T.Y. Hilton is ruled out.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Hilton was expected to return today. If he’s out, Donte Moncrief, Hakeem Nicks and Reggie Wayne would all see a significant bump in a nice matchup against Dallas. His absence would hurt Andrew Luck, but he’d still be a must-start given the matchup.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014, 5:57pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Hilton expects to practice on Thursday, but we’ll monitor his progress this week.

T.Y. Hilton's (hamstring) MRI comes back clean

Monday, December 15, 2014, 5:21pm

Horseshoeheros.com - [Full Article]

The Indianapolis Colts had a bit of good news today, when it was reported that the team received a clean bill of health regarding wide receiver T.Y. Hilton‘s sore hamstring. The 3rd-year wideout apparently tweaked his hamstring in Sunday’s win over the Houston Texans. He received the results of his MRI today, which came back with positive results.

Fantasy Impact:

While it wasn’t visibly noticeable during the game, Hilton was fairly quiet after catching 3 passes in the 1st quarter. Perhaps, it was a direct result of his hamstring injury, as he finished with just 4 receptions for 50 receiving yards and 0 touchdowns, the story pointed out. He looks promising for a game in Dallas in Week 16, but we first have to see if he can practice this week. The team is hoping he can by Wednesday or Thursday.

T.Y. Hilton tweaks hamstring

Monday, December 15, 2014, 8:59am

Yahoo Sports - [Full Article]

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton tweaked his hamstring against the Texans on Sunday, but didn’t seem to miss much time if any.

His production on the other hand did take a marked plunge after a strong start to the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Hilton didn't shed anymore info on the injury other than he was quoted as saying he's scheduled for an MRI. It's perhaps at least a little good news at this point in the week that he remained in the game but could be a reason for a drop in fantasy production.

Friday, December 12, 2014, 6:26pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (not injury related, probable) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is probable for Week 15. Hilton will be fine for a great matchup against Houston. In his last five games against the Texans, Hilton has averaged 6.2-122-1.2. That’s 25.6 fantasy points in PPR formats.

Reggie Wayne playing with torn tricep

Colts.com - [Full Article]

Colts HC Chuck Pagano on how much HC Reggie Wayne has left:

“I know he’s got more. How much that is? I don’t know how much that is, but I know he’s got more. He’ll deliver. He’ll be back.”

Following the game on Sunday, Pagano on Colts postgame radio said that Wayne was playing through a “torn tri” that he suffered in the Cincinnati game earlier this season. On Monday, Pagano reiterated that Wayne is battling through nagging injuries.

Fantasy Impact:

Against Cleveland, Wayne had just one reception in eight targets and did drop a few balls he might normally catch if healthy. He’s averaged three receptions for 37 yards in the games since his elbow/tri injuries as T.Y. Hilton has really emerged. Wayne’ s presence within the Colts offense is still key and Pagano clearly feels that No. 87 will continue to make plays for this team. Sunday would mark the 209th career game for Wayne, breaking the Colts franchise record.

Friday, December 5, 2014, 6:38pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 14. Hilton will be good to go for Sunday.

Thursday, December 4, 2014, 5:59pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. This a new injury for Hilton, but since he’s already practicing (albeit limited), he should be fine to face Cleveland.

Donte Moncrief moves into Indy's WR3 role

Monday, December 1, 2014, 9:57am

NFL.com - [Full Article]

It's no coincidence that Andrew Luck's big game came on the same day that WR Donte Moncrief finally pushed past Hakeem Nicks on the depth chart.

With Reggie Wayne losing a step, the Colts need Moncrief's playmaking ability as an alternative to T.Y. Hilton. The third-round rookie has the size and athleticism to become a star with Luck as his quarterback.

Fantasy Impact:

While it may have just become official this week, it's no surprise Moncrief is now the team's WR3. We had a news item on Saturday that said it remains to be seen if he passes Reggie Wayne for the WR2 role. The item said that Wayne is still a security blank for Luck, but there's no denying Moncrief's big-play ability. He's certainly worth a pickup, at least in deeper leagues, but owners should probably still consider him boom or bust at this point. However he's one big play away from giving owners very nice fantasy numbers.
