T.Y. Hilton still behind Darrius Heyward-Bey

Indy Star - [Full Article]

The Colts are confident they’ve got a smart arrangement with Darrius Heyward-Bey installed as the No. 2 receiver and T.Y. Hilton No. 3. Heyward-Bey, at 6-2, 219 pounds, brings some important qualities to the offense that justify keeping him on the field. The ability to factor in the running game, as he pointed out, is high on the list for a team that wants to run the ball more consistently and successfully.

Fantasy Impact: 

Hilton finished as the #24 WR playing significantly fewer snaps than the Colts' WR2, Donnie Avery, so we wouldn't worry too much about his per snap production. The main concern is that the Colts run a lot of two-TE sets which will make it difficult to keep Hilton on the field. We still like him as a fantasy WR3, though his upside may be somewhat limited if the depth chart doesn't change.
