T.Y. Hilton Fantasy News

Friday, September 23, 2016, 6:21pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 3. Hilton had a knee issue last week and played through it. HC Chuck Pagano said that “he’s going to be fine.” He’ll face shutdown corner Jason Verrett on Sunday, though Verrett doesn’t usually travel to cover the slot, where Hilton runs most of his routes. If the Colts play a lot of two-TE, then that will push Hilton to the outside, where he’ll have to deal with Verrett.

Colts WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 3. Moncrief is out 4-6 weeks with a broken shoulder blade, so Phillip Dorsett slides into the WR2 role for the Colts. He posted 4-94 in Week 1 against Detroit, and may even see a few extra targets come his way while T.Y. Hilton deals with shutdown corner Jason Verrett.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) was added to the injury report Thursday after taking limited practice reps. Hilton had a knee issue last week and played through it. He’ll face shutdown corner Jason Verrett on Sunday. The good news is that Verrett doesn’t usually travel to the slot, where Hilton lines up about 60% of the time.

Colts WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder) missed practice again Thursday. Moncrief is out 4-6 weeks with a broken shoulder blade, so Dorsett slides into the WR2 role for the Colts.

Colts WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Moncrief is out 4-6 weeks with a broken shoulder blade, so Phillip Dorsett slides into the WR2 role for the Colts.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) returned to take full practice reps Friday after missing practice Thursday. The Colts removed Hilton from the injury report. He’ll play in a bad matchup against the Broncos.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice. Hilton is a midweek downgrade with a knee issue, though it may just be a maintenance day. We’ll see how much he participates on Friday, though nervous owners in shallow leagues could pick up Phillip Dorsett as insurance.

Luck: Colts WR T.Y. Hilton 'probably the best player on the field' at camp

Thursday, August 11, 2016, 1:49pm

Kevin Bowen - [Full Article]

Andrew Luck says the consistency of Colts WR T.Y. Hilton was impressive all camp. "Probably the best player on the field."

Fantasy Impact:

In 22 games over the past two seasons with a healthy Andrew Luck, Hilton has averaged 5.1 catches for 86 yards and 0.45 TD. Those are fringe WR1 numbers in PPR formats and solid WR1 numbers in standard leagues. With Luck back under center, Hilton should have a bounce back season after finishing #22 in both formats last year.

Colts look to sort out skill position depth

Thursday, July 28, 2016, 2:43pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Colts have talent at their skill positions, but they also have depth concerns.

“We have three guys at wide receiver [who] we know about and then we have a bunch of guys [who] have talent, can run, have height, weight and speed and can catch and do all those things, but they have to go do it now,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “Those guys are all going to compete for that spot, and that’s what training camp is all about. We’ve got talent, we’ve got guys that are capable, they are just unproven.”

The Colts have nine receivers on their roster not with the last name T.Y. Hilton, Phillip Dorsett or Donte Moncrief. Brian Tyms and Josh Boyce are the only receivers who have a reception in the NFL. The Colts have routinely kept around five receivers during the regular season.

There's no clear-cut favorite on who Frank Gore's backup is even though the team is high on undrafted free agent Josh Ferguson out of Illinois. Gore had 227 more carries than his next closest teammate last season.

Fantasy Impact:

The Colts are just fine with their starting skill spots, but any kind of injury the team will need to sort out who is up next. Whomever wins the jobs could certainly have fantasy potential if there is an injury at some point. The story also mentioned TE, where it's just Jack Doyle and Chase Coffman behind Dwayne Allen.

Pagano: Colts WR T.Y. Hilton having a great offseason

Wednesday, May 25, 2016, 1:14pm

Indy Star - [Full Article]

Moments after saying he would prefer not to hype anyone’s performance this early to avoid the potential for complacency, Colts coach Chuck Pagano proceeded to sing the praises of his No. 1 receiver.

“(T.Y. Hilton) is having as good an offseason as anybody, probably better than anybody,” Pagano said Tuesday. “…I’ve never seen this guy practice as fast as he's practicing right now. … He’s done it day in and day out.”

That's no embellishment. Hilton has caught just about everything thrown his way – over the middle, on the sideline, falling out of the end zone. On those occasions when he’s matched up against No. 1 cornerback Vontae Davis, Hilton seems to have won more of those battles than he’s lost.

I asked Hilton what gives. He offered a simple explanation.

“I’m more motivated, more hungry,” he said. “I’m just ready to go, man. After watching the playoffs last year and not being in there, I’m just ready to get back to that point and continue to lead this team.”

Fantasy Impact:

In 22 games over the past two seasons with an active Andrew Luck, Hilton has averaged 5.1 catches for 86 yards and 0.45 TD. Those are fringe WR1 numbers in PPR formats and solid WR1 numbers in standard leagues. With Luck back under center, Hilton should have a bounce back season after finishing #22 in both formats.

Friday, January 1, 2016, 6:26pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 17. Hilton should play with the Colts still in the playoff hunt.

Wednesday, December 30, 2015, 6:13pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Hilton should be able to play, but he may be dealing with Stephen Morris at quarterback.

Friday, November 6, 2015, 6:19pm

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (foot, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 9. Hilton has a foot sprain and is considered “day to day,” though beat writer Mike Chappell has heard that the injury required an MRI earlier in the week. Another beat writer, Zak Keefer, said he “would be surprised if he plays Sunday.” For now, we have him penciled into our rankings, but he’s not an attractive start against the Broncos’ stingy secondary. The Colts play late, so this could be a Sunday headache for owners. Hopefully we’ll have more clarity over the weekend.

Friday, November 6, 2015, 6:19pm

Colts WR Andre Johnson (not injury related) took full practice reps again Friday. If T.Y. Hilton is out, Johnson could be a Sneaky Start despite a terrible matchup against Denver.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (foot) shaping up as a game-time decision

Friday, November 6, 2015, 1:02pm

Rand Getlin, Twitter - [Full Article]

NFL Network reporter Rand Getlin: I'm told no decision has been made on whether Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will play just yet. "Looks like a game time decision"

Related players: Donte Moncrief, Andre Johnson, Griff Whalen, Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen

Fantasy Impact:

Hilton is dealing with a foot sprain that reportedly required an MRI earlier in the week. Complicating matters, the matchup against the Broncos is brutal. Denver is #1 in WR aFPA, so even if Hilton suits up, he's not a great start. If Hilton sits, Donte Moncrief, Andre Johnson and Griff Whalen would pick up his snaps and targets, but new OC Rob Chudzinski may also elect to get the Colts' tight ends more involved.
