News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 18): If Hilton was dropped in your league, it's time to re-add him. He could return for the Thursday night game against Houston, always a big one for him, and should be back in Week 13 at the latest.

General News (Wed Nov 20): practiced fully on Wednesday but is questionable to play this week.

General News (Tue Nov 19): did not practice on Tuesday.

General News (Tue Nov 19): can play Thursday, Nov. 21, if he receives medical clearance from doctors and clearance from the team, according to head coach Frank Reich.

General News (Mon Nov 18): ramped up his rehab work and made "great progress" last week, according to head coach Frank Reich. As such, he is "very much in play" for Week 12, according to Stephen Holder of The Athletic.

Week 12: at Houston Texans

All WR vs HOU

FBG says: Great matchup. Jacoby Brissett wasn't spectacular in his return from injury against the Jaguars last week, but he got the job done and showed minimal signs of limitation as he should be good to go for this week's Thursday game. Brissett had his best game of the season in Week 7 against the Texans, passing for 326 yards and four touchdowns as he spread the ball all over the field. That game marked a breakout for receiver Zach Pascal, who had over 100 yards and two touchdowns. Pascal has been up and down since then, but for the most part, he has been disappointing with minimal production despite the absence of T.Y. Hilton. With Hilton likely out again this week and Parris Campbell also potentially sidelined, it will be up to Pascal and these tight ends to carry the load. Eric Ebron has been the top tight end for the Colts in the past two games, but he has had unreliable production with low volume all season and has been battling both an illness and ankle injury since last week--making his status worth monitoring coming into Thursday. Given the injury to Marlon Mack, it could be conceivable to see a slight uptick in playing time and volume for Nyhiem Hines, who has remained consistently involved in the passing offense this season. Houston's defense had a very rough outing last week as Lamar Jackson basically had his way with them, passing for four touchdowns in just about three quarters of play. This defense has given up three or more passing touchdowns in five of their last six games, with the only decent game coming against a completely inept Jacksonville passing offense that still put up over 300 yards on them. They rank near the bottom of the league in almost every metric against the pass, and their lack of talent in the secondary reinforces just how exploitable this unit can and will continue to be. The only shining light is the possible return of cornerback Bradley Roby, who has been sidelined since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 6. Roby himself is not an elite player by any means though, so even his return wouldn't be enough to save this secondary that should afford every bit of an advantage to each Colts receiver and tight end. The Texans were noticeably more successful when blitzing against the Colts in their last meeting, so look for some pressure to be dialed up as this Houston front tries to crack through a very strong Colts offensive line and force Brissett to get the ball out quickly. However, Houston's pass rush has been a shell of what it was with J.J. Watt in the lineup, and the Colts still hold the clear advantage in the trenches though with their elite offensive line.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 8 vs DEN (6 / 2 / 54 / 0 rec)

TY Hilton struggled against Chris Harris. Hilton's first target was on a shallow crossing route and the pass was undercut and knocked away by Chris Harris. Hilton made his first catch in the 3rd quarter for 19 yards finding a soft spot in the Broncos' defense. Hilton made a huge play when the Colts needed it most. Hilton made an outstanding 35 yard catch along the sideline with Brissett scrambling to escape pressure. Chris Harris was in tight coverage on the play and Hilton did an amazing job of getting both feet in bounds. Harris had Hilton locked down for the majority of the game but Hilton made a big play when it mattered most.

2019 Week 7 vs HOU (11 / 6 / 74 / 1 rec)

TY Hilton played well but had a quieter game that some might have expected with Brissett putting up huge numbers. Numerous Colts contributed big plays in the passing game. Hilton had a potential 35 yard gain hit him in the hands and fall incomplete. It was a sideline catch with a high degree of difficulty but it was a catch Hilton has made previously. Hilton beat his man from the slot running a deep crossing route for 23 yards. Hilton made a catch running a slant for 12 yards. Hilton scored a 2 yard touchdown running a pick play with Eric Ebron. Hilton continues to be a red zone weapon for the Colts thanks to his quickness and sure hands. Hilton made an 11 yard catch running a comeback route. On 3rd and 7 Hilton ran a shallow crossing route, broke a tackle, and tip toed his way down the sideline for 25 yards. It looked like Hilton should have been forced out of bounds about 10 yards before he actually was.

2019 Week 5 vs KC (5 / 4 / 37 / 0 rec)

TY Hilton saw limited involvement in his return from injury in large part due to game script. Hilton looked healthy but the Colts limited number of pass attempts especially in the second half curtailed his production. Hilton slipped out of a tackle running a comeback route and picked up 9 yards. Hilton showed off his acceleration beating his man to the edge on a crossing route for a 13 yard gain. Hilton picked up 14 yards crossing the field against man coverage.

2019 Week 3 vs ATL (10 / 8 / 65 / 1 rec)

TY Hilton continued his dominate season in the first half against the Falcons. Hilton did most of his damage underneath in this game but still made a big play downfield. Hilton left the game at halftime with a quad injury or he could have had a huge game. Hilton made his first catch in the flat for a 2 yard gain. Hilton caught a 26 yard pass down the sideline between two defenders and he absorbed an illegal hit on the play adding on an additional 15 yards. Hilton did well to adjust to a less than perfect throw from Brissett. Hilton caught a slant from Brissett and was brought down at the 1 yard line after a 5 yard gain. Hilton gained 12 yards running a comeback route in front of Desmond Trufant. Hilton caught a 4 yard touchdown running a quick out route from the slot.

2019 Week 2 vs TEN (6 / 4 / 43 / 1 rec)

TY Hilton played well against the Titans. Expect Hilton to continue to produce on a weekly basis. Brissett looks to Hilton frequently, with good reason, and Hilton is the type of playmaker who can put up points against anyone. Hilton sees heavy involvement in the red zone and on underneath passes to give him a solid floor of production week to week. Hilton made his first catch on a screen pass for 11 yards on 3rd and long. Hilton drew a 9 yard pass interference penalty on 3rd and 7. Hilton picked up 19 yards running an in breaking route to convert a 3rd and long. Hilton had 4 defenders in his vicinity but still managed to get open. Hilton made a 9 yard catch running a curl route underneath. Hilton sold an inside release with Malcolm Butler in coverage just to break back outside and gain separation for a 4 yard touchdown on a fade route. Hilton got behind Butler on the Colts ensuing possession but Brissett just missed him for a potential big play or touchdown.

2019 Week 1 vs LAC (9 / 8 / 87 / 2 rec)

TY Hilton did most of his damage underneath but still looked like the same dangerous player with lethal speed. Hilton made his first two catches underneath for 8 yards. Hilton 3rd catch was a slant between two defenders for a 4 yard touchdown. Hilton picked up 12 yards running a comeback route from the slot. Hilton picked up 9 yards running a curl route. Hilton gained 16 yards on a screen pass on 3rd and long but still came a yard short of the line to gain. Hilton made a 19 yard catch running an in breaking route over the middle. TY Hilton made a catch on a shallow crossing route and broke a tackle to evade two defenders before escaping up the sideline for a 19 yard touchdown. Hilton should have been stopped for a minimal gain on the play.
