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 27): Hilton seemingly gets open at will, and Andrew Luck is having no trouble finding him. Even without a huge touchdown total, Hilton has elevated his game to fantasy WR1 levels.

Week 9: at New York Giants

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Andrew Luck is on an amazing tear through the NFL, with five games of 370 yards or more passing so far this season (including last week's 26/45 for 400 yards, with three TDs and two interceptions thrown at Pittsburgh) and seven-out-of-eight games with in excess of 300 yards passing. T.Y. Hilton is the sixth-ranked wide receiver in the land at the half-way point, with 53/866/2 receiving; Dwayne Allen is eighth among fantasy tight ends with 22/326/6; and Ahmad Bradshaw is fifth among fantasy running backs in the PPR paradigm with 76/371/2 rushing and 31/264/6 receiving. That's a studly collection of Colts, friends. The Giants' pass D is ranked 25th in the NFL averaging 262.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores offset by 11 interceptions generated to date (second-most in the NFL). However, Luck has thrown 22 pass TDs vs. nine interceptions this year - he's not especially prone to turnovers. The Giants have 13 sacks this season (21st in the NFL). Tony Romo hit this group for 17/23 yielding 267 net yards, three TDs and one interception (two sacks for -12 yards) two weeks ago; Nick Foles threw 21/34 for 245 yards, two TDs and two interceptions, with one sack taken for -3 yards back in Week 6. This is a great matchup for Luck and company on Monday Night Football during Week 9.

Recent Game Summaries

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.

2014 Week 8 vs PIT (10 / 6 / 155 / 1 rec)

Another impressive day for Hilton, who had his third consecutive 100-yard game (fifth consecutive with at least 90 yards) and found the end zone for the second time all year. Hilton's touchdowns will come as the Colts' deep passing attack improves. With rookie speedster Donte Moncrief getting more snaps against Pittsburgh, the downfield passing attack had a bit more space to work with. If he continues to play, Hilton could continue to see these high yards per catch numbers.
