Colts want to get T.Y. Hilton going
Thursday, December 12, 2013, 10:28am

Indy Star - [Full Article]

Da'Rick Rogers and LaVon Brazill combined for nine catches for 160 yards and four TDs against the Bengals.

Finally, help for Colts T.Y. Hilton, whose game-breaking skills have been neutralized the past month by defenses committed to not allowing him to do what he does best.

"Certainly the game that two of our young guys had — the numbers that they had and the production that they had — hopefully we continue that trend and it'll take some of that coverage ... away from T.Y.," coach Chuck Pagano said.

"We got to get him going again."

Fantasy Impact:

The last time Hilton faced the Texans, he racked up seven catches for 121 yards and three TDs, but he has been in a slump of late, failing to crack 50 yards in four straight games, culminating in a two-catch, seven-yard effort against the Bengals in Week 14. It's good to hear his head coach say they have to get him going, but Hilton is difficult to trust at this point.

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Just in case anybody was wondering, T.Y. Hilton did play for the Colts on Sunday.

The second-year wide receiver was on the field for 45 snaps in Indianapolis' 42-28 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The playing time produced all of two catches for seven yards.

The quiet afternoon was part of a disturbing trend for Hilton.

Fantasy Impact:

Hilton had two big games coming off the team's loss of WR1 Reggie Wayne, but Hilton admitted lately he's been drawing double teams and also team's top cornerbacks. Hilton is becoming a risky play at this point because over the last four weeks he has just 17 receptions for 135 yards. On top of that, it's another tough matchup against Houston in Week 15.

Indianapolis Star - [Full Article]

Trent Richardson's demotion this week did little to promote the idea that he is the Indianapolis Colts' future at running back.

But despite all the intensifying chatter on Richardson and his struggles since his much-debated September trade from the Cleveland Browns to the Colts, the team would argue one important angle has been overlooked.

Richardson's lack of success in the short term actually has little impact on the Colts' view of him in the long term. Put simply, the Colts made the trade to fill a current need, but also because they saw it as a deal that helps them in the future, when they believe Richardson can be better integrated into their offense.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story points out, the Colts dropping Richardson on the depth chart is not tantamount to the team making assumptions about tomorrow. They stand behind the decision to start Donald Brown on Sunday; even Richardson said it was the right call. It will be tough for owners in keeper leagues to protect Richardson and his stock going into next year could fall. But, he'll be a guy to take a shot on outside of the first round.

Wayne: Trent Richardson felt 'forced' into offense
Wednesday, December 4, 2013, 11:29pm

Stampede Blue - [Full Article]

When asked if Colts RB Trent Richardson had come to WR Reggie Wayne seeking advice on how to deal with the benching, Wayne responded:

"He came to me, he wasn't pouting or anything. This was the next day after he found out he was demoted and he said, 'Now I can sit back and actually watch the way it's supposed to be done.' He kind of feels that he was maybe forced into it early without actually learning it."

Fantasy Impact:

Whatever the reason for Richardson's struggles, he's playing behind Donald Brown now. Brown should be a solid RB2-type the rest of the way. He is the #21 RB since Week 9.
