WR T.Y. Hilton - Indianapolis Colts
|5-10, 183||Born: 11-14-1989||College: Florida International||Drafted: Round 3|
He is listed as questionable on this week's official injury report.
News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 19): Hilton made it through a mid-week missed practice knee scare just fine, and while he wasn't stellar against the Broncos, very rarely do receivers go to Denver and put up anything close to typical numbers. He should be fine for Week 3, albeit in a tough matchup against the Chargers corners.
General News (Fri Sep 23): did not practice on Friday and is questionable to play this week. Head coach Chuck Pagano said he was rested due to soreness and he'll be fine.
General News (Thu Sep 22): partially participated in Thursday's practice.
Week 3: vs San Diego Chargers
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Andrew Luck cooled off in Mile High Stadium last weekend, throwing just one TD and one interception vs. the Broncos, while taking five sacks for -27 yards and 11 quarterback hits from Denver's defenders. Ouch. Donte Moncrief has a shoulder injury after the bout in Denver (three targets for 1/9/0 receiving) and may have also had a concussion/head/neck injury in the contest. Whatever the final diagnosis turns out to be, Moncrief is beat up entering Week Three. T.Y. Hilton squandered most of his 11 targets in Denver (4/41/0 receiving), while Philip Dorsett only managed 1/30/0 receiving on five targets. Not much went right for the Colts' passing attack last week (Luck finished with 21/40 for 197 yards passing on the day). However, the Chargers make most passing attacks revive to instant health when they are the opposition - to date, the Chargers average 324.5 net passing yards allowed per game (29th in the NFL), with four passing TDs allowed and three interceptions along with five sacks generated. Over the first two weeks of the season, San Diego has averaged 29.3 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (second-most in the NFL); and 22.2 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (17th in the league); with 12.1 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (fifth-most). This is a great matchup for Luck and company (tight end Dwayne Allen should do better than four targets for 2/25/0 receiving in this one).

2016 Week 1 vs DET (12 / 6 / 79 / 0 rec)
TY Hilton played very well and made numerous impressive grabs. Hilton did a nice job of finding a hole in zone coverage on a crossing route and picked up 13 on his first reception. Luck threw wide of Hilton on his second target on an in route with Darius Slay in tight coverage. Hilton had his man beat running an out route for a potential first down but the pass was tipped at the line of scrimmage.

Hilton followed it by making an awesome diving catch on 3rd down in the red zone trapping the ball against his helmet as he hit the ground for a 8 yard gain. Hilton appeared shaken up after the catch but returned to the game promptly. Hilton burned a safety one on one running a corner route for a gain of 32.

Latest NewsColts | Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton active (Sun Sep 25, 03:58 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) and WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) are officially active for the team's Week 3 game. Our View: Luck has been managed in practice and possibly dealing with shoulder fatigue. We'll watch this situation to see if it starts to affect his passing ability. That this is an issue so early in the season could be a bad sign.
link to story Colts | T.Y. Hilton sits practice, should be fine (Fri Sep 23, 03:04 PM) - Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, September 23. Head coach Chuck Pagano said he was rested due to soreness and he'll be fine. Hilton is also being listed as questionable on the injury report for Week 4. Our View: Hilton should draw Jason Verrett, who shut down Allen Robinson last week. Andrew Luck is also questionable, so Hilton is more WR3/Flex than WR1/WR2 this week. If he can't go, Quan Bray would likely get the start.
link to story Colts | Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton limited Thursday (Thu Sep 22, 05:49 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) and WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) were limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 22. Our View: Luck could be in a shootout, as both he Chargers and Colts suffer from "bad defense-itis" and the Chargers average 324.5 net passing yards allowed per game (29th in the NFL). The have generated five sacks and three interceptions, but allowed four passing touchdowns as well. We see Luck as a borderline QB1/QB2. A banged up Hilton is a concern and last week was really disappointing. He has yet to get his first touchdown as well. We think he should be decent this weekend, but have him as a WR3 right now in part due to injury, in part due to an underwhelming first two weeks.
link to story Colts | Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton practice in full (Fri Sep 16, 03:59 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) got in a full practice Friday, September 16, after being limited in the previous day's session. Additionally, WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) returned to practice after not practicing on Thursday. Our View: Hilton is good to go this week, but he still faces the tough Denver secondary. He's a boom/bust WR3/flex play this week.
Colts | Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton on injury report (Thu Sep 15, 05:06 PM) - Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (knee) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 15, while QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited with a right shoulder ailment. Neither had been on the injury report earlier this week. Our View: We're betting he plays but wounded against Denver is a bad situation. Right now we see him as a WR3/WR4 which is not something we expected to type this year.
