Notes: Prior to Reggie Wayne’s injury, Hilton played 63.1% of his team’s snaps. After Wayne tore his ACL, that number rose to 76.9%. With Wayne coming off of a serious injury, Hilton will be (or at least he should be) the primary target in the passing game in 2014. With Wayne sidelined, Hilton averaged 6.5-91-.45 over the final 11 games, including the playoffs. That equates to 11.8 fantasy points per game, or fringe WR1 numbers. The arrival of Hakeem Nicks and the return of Dwayne Allen (potentially leading to more two-TE sets with Coby Fleener) may limit Hilton's upside.

The addition of Colts WR Hakeem Nicks not only will be a plus for quarterback Andrew Luck, but his presence on the field will have a significant impact for T.Y. Hilton, Reggie Wayne and the team’s tight ends. Hilton and Nicks can stretch the field on the outside, which in turn will open up the middle of the field for Wayne and the tight ends. What also can’t be discounted is that Nicks’ presence helps ease things for Wayne, who is coming off a torn ACL. Wayne doesn’t have to feel like he needs to dominate a game because he has Nicks, Hilton and the tight ends to help him out.
We're not crazy about the 35-year-old Wayne coming off of ACL surgery, and the arrival of Nicks will allow the team to ease Wayne in if he shows signs that he's not 100 percent ready to go.
