T.Y. Hilton Fantasy News

Friday, October 2, 2015, 6:45pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee, probable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is probable for Week 4. Hilton has 20 catches for 357 yards and a touchdown on 26 targets in his last three games against the Jaguars.

T.Y. Hilton will play Monday night

T.Y. Hilton will take the field as the Indianapolis Colts attempt to avoid an 0-2 start to the season.

The wideout will be active Monday night versus the New York Jets, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of Hilton's status. Hilton was officially listed as questionable. NBC Sports first reported the news.

Hilton left last week's loss with a bruised knee and did not return. The Colts' No. 1 wideout practiced on limited basis on Saturday, leading coach Chuck Pagano to say Hilton "looked good" and was optimistic he could play Monday.

In Week 1, Hilton led the Colts with seven receptions for 88 receiving yards on 14 targets. In three career games on MNF, Hilton has 14 receptions, 179 receiving yards and one touchdown.

Fantasy Impact:

How hindered the speedy wideout will be is something to monitor early in the contest. If his game-breaking speed is sapped, it could cramp the Colts' offense against Darrelle Revis, Buster Skrine and the rest of the Jets' secondary. Hilton comes with risk tonight and on top of it his presence should also put a dent in Donte Moncrief's fantasy value as Moncrief was expected to start if Hilton was unable to go.

Colts optimistic T.Y. Hilton (knee) can play Week 2

T.Y. Hilton returned to the practice field Saturday and is officially questionable for Monday night's contest versus the New York Jets.

Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he's optimistic that Hilton will play this week.
Every game, all season

"He looked good. Still got two days," Pagano said of his star receiver, via Indy Sports Central's Mike Chappell.

It was the first practice of the week for the Colts' No. 1 receiver after leaving a Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills in the fourth quarter with a bruised knee. Despite the early exit, Hilton led Indy with seven receptions for 88 yards on 14 targets.

"Depends on how my knee reacts tomorrow." said Hilton, via the Indy Star. "It's a great thing we play Monday."

Fantasy Impact:

Getting an extra day of rest should help Hilton's availability Monday night. If Hilton isn't full-go, Andrew Luck will rely on Donte Moncrief and rookie Phillip Dorsett to fill his shoes alongside veteran Andre Johnson. Moncrief, it was said earlier in the week, could get the start to take pressure off the Dorsett.

MNF Injury Report: T.Y. Hilton, Chris Ivory QUESTIONABLE

Saturday, September 19, 2015, 3:48pm

LB Lorenzo Mauldin (concussion), QB Geno Smith (jaw)

CB Darrin Walls (hamstring)

CB Antonio Cromartie (knee), RB Chris Ivory (groin)

DE Stephen Bowen (knee), G James Carpenter (back), G Willie Colon (knee), T Breno Giacomini (biceps), S Jaiquawn Jarrett (shoulder), T Brent Qvale (finger), LB Trevor Reilly (finger), WR Devin Smith (ribs)

CB Darius Butler (hip), CB Gregory Toler (neck)

WR T.Y. Hilton (knee), LB Robert Mathis (achilles), LB Jonathan Newsome (hamstring)

G Todd Herremans (shoulder), LB D'Qwell Jackson (toe), LB Bjoern Werner (knee)

Fantasy Impact:

Ivory was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. He tweaked his groin earlier in the week during practice. If he can't go, Bilal Powell would make a handcuff option for Ivory owners. For the Colts, Hilton was held out of practice all week but was limited on Saturday and is also questionable, perhaps a sign he's at least trending upward. Neither player may be 100-percent for the game if they are active. Donte Moncrief seems on track to take Hilton's place if he can't go.

Friday, September 18, 2015, 6:37pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) missed practice again Friday. Hilton was hoping to do some work at practice on Friday, but it didn’t happen. Hilton may be a game-time decision for Monday night, which will put owners in a tough position. Hopefully, we’ll have more clarity after the Colts practice on Saturday. Donte Moncrief or Phillip Dorsett both qualify as a Plan B. The same goes for Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, if they happen to be on the bench.

Thursday, September 17, 2015, 6:09pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) missed practice Thursday. Hilton may be a game-time decision for Monday night, which will put owners in a tough position. Hopefully, we’ll have more clarity over the weekend.

Colts Beat: Donte Moncrief would start if T.Y. Hilton misses time

Monday, September 14, 2015, 8:51pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Second-year receiver Donte Moncrief would likely start opposite of Andre Johnson if T.Y. Hilton doesn't play Week 2.

Fantasy Impact:

The reasoning, according to the story, is not having Hilton would put more pressure on rookie Phillip Dorsett, who would become the team's third receiver. Dorsett fumbled two punts -- losing one -- and had two receptions for 45 yards against the Bills. Hilton's timetable is up in the air, it's going to depend on how he feels, but some in the organization think he could miss some time, the story said.

T.Y. Hilton day-to-day, but could be held out

Monday, September 14, 2015, 12:18pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Indianapolis Colts could be without their No. 1 receiving threat for a couple weeks.

T.Y. Hilton is day-to-day with a knee bruise, but NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports the team will be cautions with their top target. Hilton could miss one to two games, depending on how the wideout feels, per a source informed of his condition.

Hilton injured his knee during the fourth quarter of the Colts 27-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Despite the early exit, Hilton led Indy with seven receptions for 88 yards on 14 targets.

The Colts face the New York Jets in Indy next Monday night and travel to Tennessee Week 3.

Fantasy Impact:

If Hilton misses time, the Colts need first-round pick Phillip Dorsett -- two catches, 45 yards -- to step up. Donte Moncrief's role will expand on the outside in Hilton's absence and Andrew Luck will need more from Andre Johnson, who was unimpressive in his first game as a Colt.

T.Y. Hilton has knee bruise

Kevin Bowen on Twitter - [Full Article]

Colts HC Chuck Pagano says WR T.Y. Hilton's X-Ray is negative. Knee bruise. Pagano says Hilton should be fine.

Fantasy Impact:

Owners can breath a sigh of relief. It wasn't a great performance by the Colts but Hilton had OK fantasy numbers and looks like he'll be good for Week 2 - a Monday night game at home against the Jets.

T.Y. Hilton back at practice

Tuesday, September 1, 2015, 4:33pm

Colts.com - [Full Article]

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (concussion) is trending in the right direction under the concussion protocol.

Fantasy Impact:

Hilton practiced in a red non-contact jersey on Tuesday but it's a step in the right direction after there were questions about his availability for Week 1. While it's no sure thing just yet, it's at least looking positive. Phillip Dorsett was also back at practice and would likely see an increase in snaps if Hilton misses time.

T.Y. Hilton in league's concussion protocol

Monday, August 31, 2015, 2:25pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Colts have 13 days until they open the regular season and they’ll spend part of that time hoping to hear that wide receiver T.Y. Hilton has been cleared to return to action.

Coach Chuck Pagano said on Monday that Hilton is in the league’s concussion protocol after reporting symptoms of the injury following Saturday’s game against the Rams. He was subsequently evaluated by team doctors and will be monitored in the coming days. Hilton had three catches for 44 yards during the game and was probably unlikely to play in this week’s preseason finale even without the head injury.

Fantasy Impact:

There’s no way to guess whether Hilton will be cleared in time to face the Bills in Week 1, but having two weeks to get it leaves time before the Colts will have to seriously ponder alternatives in the offense. Youngsters Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett would be next in line to step up. We have Dorsett as the Colts WR3 so he could get a huge boost in fantasy value if Hilton misses time.

Back to work at their complex, the Colts returned to the practice field on Tuesday for a lighter session in shoulder pads. We did see the return of WR T.Y. Hilton, RB Vick Ballard and WR Donte Moncrief on Tuesday.

Pagano: Phillip Dorsett 'a big play waiting to happen'

Monday, August 17, 2015, 10:03am

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Indianapolis Colts have talked up rookie receiver Phillip Dorsett since the moment he was drafted in the first round. On Sunday, we finally got to see what all the hype was about for ourselves.

With T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief both sitting out the preseason opener, Dorsett got the start and was targeted often by Andrew Luck in the Colts' 36-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

"He's a big play waiting to happen, but again he has to take care of the football," coach Chuck Pagano said, per the team's official website. "You're looking at a guy that's going to be an outstanding football player, but you know what you're going to remember is the turnover. But again, he's going to be a dynamic guy for us."

Fantasy Impact:

Dorsett finished with a team-high four receptions for 51 yards, displaying game-speed, solid route running and a quick-cut capability. His day wasn't perfect, as the rookie left a few plays on the field and was stripped after a 20-yard catch. It's a crowded group of WRs in Indy and right now Dorsett owners best hope is he turns out to be the team's WR3 behind Hilton and Andre Johnson, however he'll have to battle Moncrief for that spot.

Colts sign T.Y. Hilton to a five-year extension

Thursday, August 13, 2015, 10:28am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Indianapolis Colts agreed to a contract extension with fourth-year receiver T.Y. Hilton on Thursday.

A source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that the deal is for five years and is worth $65 million -- $39 million of which is guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact:

In PPR formats, Hilton finished 31st, 19th and 11th in his first three seasons. For those scoring at home, that’s a pretty nice trend. He’s the No. 1 receiver in a high-octane offense, and although there are more mouths to feed in Indianapolis this season, he should continue to see his fare share of targets.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Some highlights from Colts camp on Sunday:

- Receiver T.Y. Hilton, who could have a new contract with the Colts by Labor Day, highlighted an impressive performance by the offense when he blew by starting cornerback Greg Toler and easily ran underneath a pass thrown by quarterback Andrew Luck to the excitement of the crowd at Anderson University on Sunday.

- Rookie receiver Phillip Dorsett also made a good impression, catching passes in traffic.

- Veteran WR Andre Johnson had consistent hands throughout the session.

- Running back Frank Gore drew one of the loudest ovations when he reached back and snagged a pass thrown behind him from Luck with one hand.
