Hilton has begun to get some kick return opportunities, though it may be a timeshare with Griff Whalen.

News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 13): Hilton finally broke through for a touchdown and a lot more against the Texans. With Andrew Luck soaring right now, Hilton is a solid WR2 with top 5 upside in any given week, we were just waiting for the outburst.

Week 7: vs Cincinnati Bengals

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. The Bengals' defense has allowed 36 and 37 points over the past two games (the Patriots also had a fumble return TD two weeks ago to run their total to 43) - this is not the elite unit that many expected to see when the season started. Tom Brady bombed the secondary for 23/35 yielding 285 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions two weekends ago while taking just one sack for -7 yards; Cam Newton threw 29/46 for 284 net yards, two TDs and one interception last weekend, and wasn't sacked at all. The Bengals' defense is in an overall state of collapse entering Week 7, with 936 total yards from scrimmage allowed over the past two games (431 surrendered to Carolina; 505 to the Patriots). It's ugly all over for the Bengals D right now, folks. Andrew Luck has thrown for 393 yards, four TDs and one interception and 370 yards, three TDs and one interception over two of the past three games, but was slightly slowed vs. Baltimore two weeks ago (312 yards passing, one TD and two interceptions thrown, but he added 6/22/1 rushing to his effort). He is the number one fantasy quarterback in the land after six games, with almost 2,000 passing yards already (172/260 for 1,987 yards passing, 17 TDs and seven interceptions thrown, with 26/83/2 rushing to sweeten the pot for his fantasy owners). The Colts' lead wide receivers, T.Y. Hilton (59 targets for 40/604/1 receiving) and Reggie Wayne (54 for 34/419/1) plus tight end Dwayne Allen (27 for 18/253/4) are must starters for fantasy owners, and Ahmad Bradshaw has made quite a lot of hay in the red zone, too (27 for 21/176/5). The bookend tight end across from Allen, Coby Fleener, has had fantasy-worthy moments this season, too, with 25 targets for 13/150/3. It's all good for the Colts in this phase of the game, folks. The top passing attack in the league meets a defense in the process of melting down this weekend - advantage Indianapolis.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 4 vs TEN (10 / 6 / 105 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)

Another week without a touchdown for Hilton, but make no mistake, he's due. Hilton was the most targeted Colt for the second week in a row, and the Colts were about two inches away from two separate deep-ball touchdowns. On the first, Hilton made a fantastic adjustment to come back to the ball and pull down the contested catch on the one-yard line, nearly rolling over in time to get across the goal line. On the second, Luck's pass was just tipped by Titans CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson. About two inches farther on the throw and Hilton would have had a deep score down the seam that he's become so deadly with over the last two years.

2014 Week 5 vs BAL (12 / 9 / 90 / 0 rec)

Hilton shared the team lead in targets this week, as Reggie Wayne was also targeted 12 times. But Hilton was the one to lead the team in yards and receptions, and just missed out on a touchdown pass that was called back because of Wayne's too-obvious pick on the crossing route. Hilton continues to show his improvements in route-running as well as dependable hands and impeccable footwork as a possession receiver. The Colts haven't connected on a deep ball to him over the top yet, but that--and touchdowns--will come soon. He and Wayne are 1a and 1b.

2014 Week 6 vs HOU (9 / 9 / 223 / 1 rec)

After racking up targets and catches in previous weeks, Hilton's big day was inevitable, and the fact that it came against Houston fit the narrative even better. Hilton has dominated the Texans on deep balls over the middle in the last few matchups, and he caught three long passes over the top on Sunday, the third a 33-yard touchdown pass for his first score of the year. Hilton continues to be Andrew Luck's No. 1 target, even over Reggie Wayne, and he's responding with big numbers. Hilton is fourth in the league in receptions and yards, and fifth in targets. More touchdowns will come.
