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

Week 8: at Pittsburgh Steelers

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Andrew Luck has thrown for 312 yards or more in six out of seven games this year, and has at least two TDs in six out of seven games (with three or more in four of seven). Start him every week and smile. T.Y. Hilton has gone crazy over the past two weeks, with nine targets for 7/107/0 receiving vs. Cincinnati last week and nine for 9/223/1 receiving at Houston two weeks ago. Dwayne Allen has three catches per game over the past two contests (six for 3/52/1 last week; seven for 3/49/0 two weeks back) and is getting enough opportunities to post even more production. Ahmad Bradshaw has caught a TD in each of the last two games (six for 3/25/1 two weeks ago and three for 3/36/1 last week). Reggie Wayne has hit a dry page (eight for 4/15/0 vs. Cincinnati last week; nine for 4/35/0 at Houston two weeks ago), but otherwise the Colts' passing attack is going great guns entering week 8. The Steelers' pass D is ranked 13th in the NFL averaging 230.9 net yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores given out vs. four interceptions (tied for 18th in the NFL) and 10 sacks (tied for 23rd) generated to date. Ryan Fitzpatrick hit them for 21/32 yielding 261 net passing yards, two TDs and one interception last week (with one sack taken for -1 yard), while Brian Hoyer was also sacked just once for -7 yards two weeks back (8/17 for 210 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions). An outstanding passing attack takes on a so-so pass D in this one - advantage, Indianapolis.

Recent Game Summaries

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.

2014 Week 7 vs CIN (9 / 7 / 107 / 0 rec)

Hilton continued to justify his WR1 status on Sunday with another versatile performance, beating the Bengals deep, over the middle, down the sideline and on a screen. He was held out of the end zone again, but he's playing well enough right now to justify starting even when he's not scoring. He has at least five receptions in every game this season, and has at least 80 yards in each of his last five games. Hilton is known as boom-or-bust because of his explosive nature, but he's more boom-or-solid right now.
