WR T.Y. Hilton - Indianapolis Colts
|5-10, 183||Born: 11-14-1989||College: Florida International||Drafted: Round 3|
Week 12: vs Tennessee Titans
FBG says: Good matchup. Jacoby Brissett has looked much improved in recent weeks as he is actually putting together a decent season. Brissett has multiple passing touchdowns in each of his last three games, two of which came against pretty tough Bengals and Steelers pass defenses. Brissett still struggles to stay upright behind poor offensive line play though. He took another three sacks in his last game as the Colts have allowed a league-leading 39 sacks this year. The wide receiver position for the Colts has been all over the place this year. Donte Moncrief scored a 60-yard touchdown as his only reception during the Colts' last game, but he has only hauled in more than two receptions in three games this season. T.Y. Hilton can put up monster numbers, but he can also put up a stinker like he did against the Steelers in Week 10, the Bengals in Week 8, the Titans in Week 6, and the list goes on. Each game in which Hilton has hauled in at least five receptions, he has gone for over 150 receiving yards with three touchdowns in those three games. In the other seven games in which Hilton has hauled in fewer than five receptions, he has neither exceeded 60 receiving yards nor scored a touchdown. Until their last game, Jack Doyle was the one consistent piece of this passing offense--but even he has shown he can put up a dud as Doyle caught just two balls for nine yards against the Steelers. After a stretch of solid outings, the bottom has fallen out from the Titans secondary in the last two weeks. The stat sheet was padded in Weeks five through nine as the Titans really did not face any dynamic offenses or elite receivers. These last two weeks have shown what elite talent can do against this squad though, as AJ Green amassed 115 yards and a touchdown while Antonio Brown exploded for 144 yards and three touchdowns last week. Adoree Jackson was covering Brown for most of the game, and he allowed 10 of 13 targets to be caught for 97 yards. However, Jackson did break up a few passes and nearly immediately tackled Brown on most of those plays. This week, Jackson has a much easier matchup as he should square off against Donte Moncrief on most snaps, while TY Hilton should be manned by Logan Ryan or LeShaun Sims. Ryan had a great game against the Colts earlier this season as he helped to shut down T.Y. Hilton to just one 19-yard reception. The Titans struggled to cover Jack Doyle in that game though as he went for 50 yards and a touchdown, and they allowed a touchdown to Jesse James last week. The Titans have shown difficulty in covering opposing tight ends actually used in their offenses, so look for Doyle to see some looks here as he is certainly an integral part of the Colts offense despite his dud from last week.

Latest NewsColts | T.Y. Hilton held in check (Sun Nov 12, 06:10 PM) - Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton managed just two receptions for 23 yards on four targets in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Our View: Hilton has only been a worthy fantasy play against Cleveland, Houston, and San Francisco. Don't drop him because he'll get healthier during his bye, and should be worth a play against Tennessee in Week 12, but maybe not again after that.

Hilton expected to play (Sun Nov 12, 12:34 AM) - Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) is expected to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10, according to a source. Our View: Hilton could still be limited on the field and he has only produced (albeit in bunches) against poor defenses/teams. The Steelers do not quality as either one of those. Hilton should be on your bench unless you don't have a viable alternative.

This issue should be enough to make you bench him against the Steelers.
