T.Y. Hilton (quad) has been ruled out for Week 7.
Hilton made a strong return to the lineup last week in his season debut, but he'll now miss tomorrow night's matchup against the 49ers and is presumably being ruled out while not making the trip to San Francisco. Hopefully Hilton doesn't miss much time because of this quad issue.
T.Y. Hilton (neck) was activated from injured reserve.
Hilton is ready to make his 2021 debut tomorrow, and it's fitting that it comes against a Texans team he's historically torched throughout his career. Hilton's presence as a veteran deep threat should boost a Colts team looking to get on track and make a run.
T.Y. Hilton (neck) has officially been designated to return from injured reserve.
Hilton is returning to practice today and now has 21 days to be activated off of injured reserve. The veteran deep threat will help add another element to Indy's offense when he returns, but he might take a couple of weeks to get back into the swing of things at practice before returning to the active roster. The thought is that he might not be activated until at least Week 7, but Hilton has destroyed the Texans throughout his career and would obviously love to be out there on Sunday.
T.Y. Hilton recently had surgery, but will be back "sooner than later," according to general manager Chris Ballard.
Hilton is dealing with a disc issue, though this is apparently good news—with Ballard saying it wasn't a major procedure and that he's already relieved about the situation. Age and overall durability concerns on a run-first offense are reasons to still be skeptical about T.Y. as a strong fantasy option, but he is definitely a good candidate to draft late and/or pick up to stash on IR.
T.Y. Hilton suffered a multi-week injury.
[UPDATE: It is an upper back/neck injury for Hilton, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.] It sounds like Hilton will be out for Week 1 with what's currently being called an "unspecified" injury by Stephen Holder and Zak Keefer of The Athletic. More information on the exact nature and extent of the veteran receiver's injury should become available in the next day or so.
The Colts are re-signing T.Y. Hilton.
Past indications were that Hilton was unlikely to play for any other team aside from the Colts, but he tested free agency—in the end, he returns to Indy to resume is outstanding career. A strong late-season stretch in 2020 may have rejuvenated the veteran receiver, who will likely be the primary deep threat for Carson Wentz this year. Through nine seasons with the Colts, Hilton has caught 608 passes for 9,360 yards and 50 touchdowns, so 10,000 career yards is well within reach for 2021.
T.Y. Hilton will play tomorrow night.
Hilton is off the Week 10 injury report and is good to go after missing one game with his groin injury. The Colts could use Hilton in a huge divisional matchup with the Titans tomorrow.
T.Y. Hilton (groin) is officially inactive for the Colts.
Hilton was listed as doubtful on the final Week 9 injury report, so this was fully expected. Look for Philip Rivers and the Colts to rely heavily on their running backs today versus the Ravens.
T.Y. Hilton (groin) is officially doubtful for Week 9.
Hilton said he was feeling good, but he’s not likely to play this Sunday against the Ravens. Consider the veteran receiver week-to-week with his groin issue.
T.Y. Hilton (groin) will not practice today.
Colts head coach Frank Reich says Hilton must practice this week to play on Sunday, so he has a couple of days to get on the practice field. Right now, we'd say Hilton is leaning toward the doubtful side of things for Week 9.
T.Y. Hilton is out for the game with a groin injury.
Hilton had two receptions for nine yards before leaving, and he unfortunately won’t get a chance to add to it today. Michael Pittman Jr. could see more snaps with the veteran out.
The Colts removed T.Y. Hilton from the NFI list.
Hilton is over his hamstring injury, which is great news early in camp before the action starts to ramp up and full practices with full speed work get underway. The veteran receiver is looking to stay healthy and have a big season in a contract year. Hilton has said he wants to only play for the Colts.
T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is opening camp in the Active/NFI list, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
Pelissero says he "should be fine" and it's a "mild" injury from training, but it highlights that durability could be an issue for Hilton in his age-30/31 season. The upside will still make T.Y. worth selecting in the early-mid rounds of fantasy drafts this summer.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) is officially active for Monday night.
Hilton was expected to be held out unless he was 100%, so this is a bit of a surprise after the speedy receiver did not practice fully this week and missed the final practice on Saturday. But with the Colts needing a victory tonight to have a shot at making the postseason, Hilton is toughing it out for his team. Expect a snap count for Hilton, but his big-play ability puts him on the FLEX map for Week 15 if you haven't set your lineup with guys the final game of the week yet.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) will be a game-time decision for Monday night.
Following two consecutive practices to start the week, Hilton did not practice today, and the team wants to make sure he is 100% before playing him; so he might be trending in the wrong direction to face the Saints. Fantasy owners hoping to use Hilton in Week 15 lineups must have a backup plan from the Monday night game in case the dynamic receiver is inactive.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) officially remains limited in practice.
Hilton hasn’t put together two consecutive practices in weeks, so this is a good sign for his Monday Night Football status. We’ll see how he’s listed on the final Week 15 injury report tomorrow.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) was officially limited in today’s practice.
Hilton recently said that he does not want to go on injured reserve, and it looks like he has a shot to play on Monday night. However, it might be difficult for fantasy owners to count on Hilton in lineups unless there is more clarity on the situation.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) has officially been ruled out for Week 14.
This was expected, and Hilton is just trying to get in a position to get on the field before the end of the regular season. The dynamic receiver remains week-to-week. The good news for Indy is that rookie receiver Parris Campbell is back in the lineup this week.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) has been ruled out for Week 13.
Colts general manager Chris Ballard says Hilton suffered a setback with his calf injury in yesterday's practice, and he's now week-to-week with the injury. This is obviously a huge loss for the Colts as they look to make a playoff push, and it's also a critical loss for fantasy owners with the playoffs coming up next week for many leagues. None of Indy's wide receivers will be highly recommended fantasy option this week against the Titans.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) was officially limited in today’s practice.
Hilton is set to be limited all week in practice, but Colts head coach Frank Reich says his practice activity will dictate his playing time this Sunday after the speedy receiver did not play close to his full complement of snaps last week. We’ll let you know how Hilton is listed on the Week 13 injury report on Friday.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) is officially active against the Texans.
Hilton didn’t actually practice this week during a light week leading up to a Thursday game, but the Colts were optimistic he would be able to go tonight with first place on the line in the AFC South. Hilton, who missed the last three games, figures to be at 100% or close to it, otherwise Indy likely would not have allowed him to play to risk a re-aggravation. The dynamic receiver has absolutely torched the Texans throughout his career, including 1,018 yards in eight career games at Houston. Coming off the calf injury, Hilton is immediately a WR1/WR2 option for Week 12.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday night.
Hilton was listed as a full practice participant for today's practice estimation, which indicates the Colts feel good about the chances of him outing up against the Texans tomorrow night. Considering Hilton has killed Houston throughout his career (over 1,000 receiving yards in just eight games), he's probably really hoping to be able to play in a big matchup with first place in the AFC South on the line. If active, Hilton would immediately be a strong fantasy option for Week 12. Check back in for his status tomorrow evening.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) has officially been ruled out for Week 10.
Hilton is dealing with a three-to-four-week calf injury, so this has been the expectation since he sustained the injury in practice last week. Hilton is probably on the doubtful side of things for Week 11, too. If you feel good about your playoff chances, the dynamic receiver is a great buy-low candidate considering his fantasy playoff schedule.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) has been ruled out for Week 9.
Colts head coach Frank Reich says that Hilton suffered the calf injury in practice on Wednesday and that it's generally a three-to-four-week injury. So Hilton is out this Sunday against Pittsburgh, and he'll likely miss at least a couple of more games, too, which is a huge blow to Indy's offense. Hilton should certainly be held on fantasy rosters where possible, but you'll have to get by without him for an extended stretch.
T.Y. Hilton (calf) officially did not practice today.
Hilton was limited in yesterday's practice, as a calf issue popped up, and now it's time to be concerning about the dynamic receiver's Week 9 status after today's missed practice. Check back in tomorrow for Hilton's official status when the final injury report is released, but he's looking iffy at the moment.
T.Y. Hilton (quad) is officially active against the Chiefs.
There was optimism about Hilton’s status, and he’s out there for a big Sunday night game at Arrowhead. Hilton can be inserted into fantasy lineups as a WR2 in a game the Colts are almost certainly going to need to score a good number of points to have a chance.
T.Y. Hilton (quad) is officially listed as questionable for Week 5.
Hilton has indicated optimism that he can play on Sunday night against the Chiefs, and we expect he’ll be out there barring the quad acting up in pregame warmups. Especially with rookie receiver Parris Campbell (abdomen) now also out in Indy’s receiving corps, the team could really use Hilton. If you’re planning to place Hilton in your Week 5 fantasy lineup, just be sure to have a backup plan from Sunday night or Monday night in case the dynamic receiver is inactive.
T.Y. Hilton (quad) was officially limited in today’s practice.
Hilton has indicated he thinks there’s a good shot he plays on Sunday night, and a limited practice is a big step in the right direction. Hilton is likely headed for a questionable tag, but we’ll see if there’s any clarity on his status when the final injury report of Week 5 is released tomorrow.
T.Y. Hilton (quad) did not practice today.
Hilton missed last week's loss to the Raiders, and while he has played through injuries in the past, Indianapolis may decide to simply rest him through their Week 6 bye. We'll see if T.Y. can practice in at least a limited capacity over the next two days, but being the night game on Sunday is obviously less than ideal for fantasy owners.
T.Y. Hilton (quad) is officially inactive for Week 4.
Hilton was listed as doubtful coming into today, so this was fully expected. The Colts would obviously love to have Hilton ready to go for next Sunday against the Chiefs, but keep in mind that Indy has a bye the week after, so they might play it safe and get him to 100% for Week 7.
T.Y. Hilton (quad) is officially listed as doubtful for Week 4.
Hilton didn’t practice all week while dealing with his quad injury. Expect him to be ruled out on Sunday while the Colts rely more on rookie Parris Campbell stepping up into a primary role among wide receivers.
T.Y. Hilton (quad) did not practice on Thursday.
Hilton doesn't need to practice to suit up on Sunday, but he will ideally return to a limited session on Friday. That said, we would guess that he's on the wrong side of questionable right now, so fantasy owners with an option in tonight's game may want to think about taking T.Y. out of their lineup.
T.Y. Hilton (quad) will not practice today.
Hilton says he's unsure if he'll play this Sunday against the Raiders, and we'd say he's on the doubtful side of things right now. We'll keep you updated, but don't expect Hilton to practice tomorrow either. He'd probably do well to be listed as questionable for Week 4.
T.Y. Hilton (quad) is out for the rest of today's game.
Hilton played in the first half and caught a touchdown, but he's been ruled out to start the second half. Hopefully this doesn't become a long-term thing for Hilton, who caught eight passes for 65 yards and a touchdown before leaving against the Falcons.
T.Y. Hilton scores in playoff loss to the Chiefs.
Hilton caught four passes for 60 yards, including a 29-yard touchdown. The Colts struggled to do much of anything on Saturday, but a fourth quarter score at least made it 24-13 before Kansas City sealed it with a score of their own. T.Y. was clearly less than 100% down the stretch as he dealt with an ankle injury, but he should be fully healthy well before training camp. Hilton will likely be undervalued as a high-upside WR1 in fantasy drafts over the summer.
T.Y. Hilton catches five passes for 85 yards in Indy's playoff win over the Texans.
Hilton went for 63 yards on the game's opening drive, but Houston mostly contained him the rest of the way. Still, the Colts never looked back in a 21-7 victory, and T.Y. continues to be effective at less than 100%. Next week, Andrew Luck's No. 1 target will hope to do damage against the top-seeded Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is officially active for the Wild Card Round.
Hilton was listed as questionable as he has been the last few weeks, but he’s ready to go as expected against the Texans. The speedy receiver has 1,445 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 carer games against Houston, and he showed up to NRG Stadium wearing a clown mask after Texans cornerback Jonathan Joseph called Hilton’s statement about NRG Stadium being his second home “for clowns,” so this should be a lot of fun.
T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for the Wild Card Round.
Hilton didn't practice all week, as has been the norm the past few weeks, but he'll certainly be out there for Saturday's playoff matchup with the Texans. We'll confirm his status when it's released at around 3:00 PM ET on Saturday, but expect Hilton to be ready to go against a team he torched for 344 yards in two games during the regular season.
T.Y. Hilton catches two passes in Colts' win over the Titans.
Hilton gained 61 yards on his two receptions, with gains of 43 and 18 in the de facto Week 17 playoff game. Hilton isn't 100% as he continues to deal with his ankle issue, but he can still certainly run with the best of them while dealing with the issue. T.Y.'s regular season ends with 76 receptions for 1,270 yards and six touchdowns, as he was again one of the best receivers in football and a strong fantasy asset. Hilton will now look to do some damage in the playoffs against a Texans team he's torched in the past, including for yardage totals of 145 and 199 in their two matchups this season.
T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is officially active against the Titans.
He was again listed as questionable entering the weekend, but obviously this was fully expected in a de facto playoff game for the Colts. You can safely keep Hilton in fantasy championship lineups against a team he torched for a 9/155/2 line a few weeks ago.
T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 17.
While he's listed as questionable again, there's no doubt Hilton will be playing in a must-win de facto playoff game against the Titans on Sunday night. While he might not be quite 100%, don't hesitate to insert Hilton into fantasy championship lineups.
T.Y. Hilton caught seven passes for 138 yards in Sunday's win over the Colts.
Hilton again came into the game banged-up, but he did plenty of damage on eight targets, including a couple downfield passes. He also set up first-and-goal for the team's game-winning touchdown. T.Y. is now over 1,200 receiving yards this season, and he will be an excellent WR1 option next week for a win-and-in game against the Titans, who he stung for a season-best 9/155/2 line last month.
T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is officially active against the Giants.
As has been the case the last couple of weeks, Hilton is suiting up despite dealing with this ankle injury. Hilton isn’t quite 100%, but it certainly hasn’t affected his numbers and he’s looked as good as usual out there. Don’t hesitate to put Hilton into fantasy championship lineups.
T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is officially questionable for Week 16.
This looks like the same situation from the past two weeks, with Hilton being listed as questionable before playing on Sunday. It'd be a major surprise if Indy's No. 1 receiver doesn't suit up with his team in the thick of the AFC playoff race, and you can expect he'll be ready to go for fantasy championship weeks. Hilton should be active when the actives and inactives are released at 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.
T.Y. Hilton leads the Colts in Week 15 receiving.
Hilton caught five passes (on eight targets) for 85 yards against the Cowboys. He had a long reception of 37 yards in the Colts' win, and he probably should've drawn a pass interference call on a deep ball where it clearly looked like he was held while trying to make a play on the ball. Hilton didn't show any noticeably limitations despite entering the game with an ankle injury that had him listed as questionable, and he should be ready to go for Week 16 against the Giants. Hilton should be in lineups for the first week of fantasy title matchups.
T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is officially active for the Colts.
Hilton’s Week 15 status looked a bit shakier than last week because he didn’t practice all week, but he’s officially toughing it out and will be out there against the Cowboys. At less than 100% facing one of the league’s better defenses, consider Hilton more of a mid-range WR2 for the second week of the fantasy playoffs.
T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Week 15.
The thought was that Hilton would be fine like last week when he was listed as questionable, but the speedy receiver did not practice at all this week, putting his status in more doubt than it was in Week 14. While there are two games tomorrow, fortunately the Colts play in the early games on Sunday, so Hilton's status will be known before most of the Week 15 games kickoff. If Hilton is active, he might need to be downgraded slightly at potentially less than 100%.
T.Y. Hilton goes off in win over the Texans.
Hilton caught nine passes for 199 yards in a 24-21 victory, and he's now up to a 62/986/6 line with three games to play. T.Y. had a midseason lull due to injuries, but he's gone for lines of 3-77, 9/155/2, 7/125/1, 8/77, and 9/199 over the past five games, and he needs to remain in all lineups as a high-upside WR1/WR2 for next week's big matchup against the Cowboys.
T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) will play today against the Texans.
Colts head coach Frank Reich told this to NFL Network's James Palmer, so the speedy receiver will be active when the official actives/inactives are released at 11:30 AM ET. Hilton was listed as questionable coming into the weekend, but there wasn’t much doubt he’d play in a huge matchup against the Texans. You can safely insert Hilton into fantasy lineups as a very good option against a team he’s had a lot of success against for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
T.Y. Hilton catches eight passes against the Jaguars.
Hilton gained 77 yards on his eight receptions in the Colts' Week 13 loss. Especially in a shutout loss, it was a fine performance for Hilton in a tough matchup, as he did damage without making big plays down the field. Hilton landed on his shoulder and was down for a couple of minutes, he quickly returned to the game and appears to be fine. T.Y. next faces a Texans team he's torched throughout his career, so he obviously must remain in fantasy lineups for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
T.Y. Hilton caught seven passes for 125 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.
Hilton led the Colts in receptions and yards while seeing a team-high ten targets. It was another strong day for T.Y. after hanging 9/155/2 on the Titans in Week 11, and he will look to stay hot next week against the Jaguars next Sunday. The matchup is obviously tough, but Hilton had three receptions for 77 yards against them already this year, and at 3-8, Jacksonville could completely collapse and allow some big plays. Consider Andrew Luck's top target a high-upside WR2.
T.Y. Hilton goes off in Colts' Week 11 win.
Hilton caught all nine targets against the Titans, gaining 155 yards with two touchdowns. The first touchdown was a 68-yarder on a deep ball, and the second was a 14-yarder on a nice double move where Hilton made a back-shoulder catch and then showed incredible balance on the sideline to somehow keep his heel off the line to remain in bounds and get into the end zone. Adoree' Jackson presents a challenge with his great speed, but Hilton couldn't be stopped in this one. He'll look to keep it going against the Dolphins next week.
T.Y. Hilton catches three passes against the Jaguars.
Hilton got free for a few chunk gains in the Colts' Week 10 win, gaining 77 yard on his three receptions. This was Hilton's third-highest receiving total of the season, and he'll look to have another solid game next week against the Titans. It's a tough matchup against Adoree' Jackson and company, but Luck isn't likely to shy away from Hilton too much.
T.Y. Hilton held to one reception in win over the Raiders.
It did go for 34 yards, but Hilton was unable to bring in any of his other four targets. While he's missed two games, T.Y. is on pace for just a 52/706/8 line through eight games, and he probably should be downgraded to weekly WR2 status down the stretch. Hilton gets the Jaguars two times in four weeks when Indy returns from their Week 10 bye.
T.Y. Hilton scores twice in Colts' win.
Hilton was shadowed by Bills shutdown cornerback Tre'Davious White for much of the game, but he took advantage of a couple of zone defenses down by the goal line, getting free for two short touchdowns in the Week 7 victory. Overall, Hilton had four receptions for 25 yards and two touchdowns, so the scores with White off him helped make it a productive day. The speedy receiver appeared to be fully healthy after missing the last two games with chest and hamstring injuries, which is great to see. Hilton obviously needs to be in fantasy lineups against the Raiders in Week 8.
T.Y. Hilton (hamstring/chest) is off the Week 7 injury report.
Hilton is officially going to play on Sunday against the Bills after missing the last two games. He immediately returns to an extremely tough matchup against cornerback Tre'Davious White, so consider Hilton more of a WR2/FLEX option for Week 7 in his first game back from his hamstring and chest injuries.
T.Y. Hilton (chest/hamstring) was limited in today's practice.
This is a step backwards for Hilton from his full participation in yesterday's practice, but the Colts might just be taking things slow to avoid a setback. We'll see how Hilton is listed on the official injury report for the game when it's released tomorrow.
T.Y. Hilton (chest/hamstring) was a full participant in today’s practice.
Barring a setback, Hilton will be good to go for this Sunday against the Bills after missing the last two games. Hilton has a difficult matchup against second-year cornerback Tre’Davious White, but the speedy receiver is immediately a solid option in fantasy lineups as Andrew Luck’s top target on offense. Hilton’s presence is also a boost for Luck’s fantasy value, as he’s getting close to having his full complement of weapons.
T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 6.
Colts head coach Frank Reich called Hilton's injury week-to-week, and it doesn't sound like he's going to suit up against the Jets on Sunday. We'll update you if Hilton gets any practice time this week, but he might be headed towards being ruled out on Friday. Hilton being out another game would be a blow to Andrew Luck and the Colts offense.
T.Y. Hilton (chest/hamstring) has been ruled out for tomorrow night's game.
Hilton has been unable to practice this week, so the Colts went ahead and ruled him out ahead of their Thursday night matchup with the Patriots. This obviously makes things more difficult for Andrew Luck in a game the offense might have to score a lot of points to keep up with Tom Brady and the Patriots in Foxboro. Ryan Grant and Chester Rogers will step up as the top two receivers in Hilton's absence, but neither is a highly-recommended fantasy option. Consider Hilton week-to-week and questionable to face the Jets in Week 5.
Colts head coach Frank Reich says T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is unlikely to play this Thursday.
Considering the very quick turnaround for an early-season game, this isn't a surprise. Hilton might push to play for his team because they need him, but expect him to miss Week 5 against the Patriots. Other receivers are going to have to step up for Indianapolis if Hilton is indeed out on Thursday.
T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) did not return against the Texans.
Before leaving, Hilton had four receptions for 115 yards for his sixth career 100-yard game against Houston. Hilton has a quick turnaround to get ready for Week 5, as the Colts play this Thursday night against the Patriots. We'll monitor Hilton's status the next few days.
T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is questionable to return against the Texans.
Hilton is getting banged up a bit today, as he already left the game earlier with a chest injury. The Colts are down by five with under eight minutes remaining, so they could really use Hilton down the stretch. We'll update you as more information becomes available.
T.Y. Hilton is back in the game for the Colts.
Hilton left with a chest injury, but he's good to go and back in the game against the Texans. Hilton has historically killed the Texans, so this is a big boost for Indy getting him back.
T.Y. Hilton (chest) is officially questionable to return against the Texans.
Being called questionable to return is a good sign considering it looked like a serious injury, and we'll update you as more information becomes available.
T.Y. Hilton leaves game with apparent shoulder injury.
Hilton was injured on a 40-yard reception, and it looks like a potential serious injury to the shoulder/collarbone area. Hilton is currently in the locker room, and we'll update you as more information becomes available.
T.Y. Hilton catches five passes against the Eagles.
Philadelphia's defense plays very well at home, and they did a nice job of limiting Hilton throughout the afternoon. Hilton was targeted ten times in the Week 3 loss, gaining 50 yards on his five receptions. In Week 4 at home, look for T.Y. to have a bigger game when he takes on a vulnerable Texans team that he's had a lot success against in the past.
T.Y. Hilton scores against the Redskins.
Hilton was targeted 11 times by Andrew Luck in the Week 2 win, catching seven passes for 83 yards and a touchdown. He also drew a deep pass interference penalty for about 40 yards. The touchdown was on a short crossing route where he got wide open. Hilton gets a Week 3 matchup against an Eagles team that struggled to contain Tampa Bay's talented receivers, and he should obviously be kept in fantasy lineups.
T.Y. Hilton scores in Week 1 loss.
Hilton caught five passes for 46 yards, including a five-yard touchdown on a slant in the third quarter. The Bengals have one of the better passes defenses in the league, so this was a good start for the Pro Bowl receiver in his first regular season action with Andrew Luck since 2016. Next week, T.Y. should be a no-doubt WR1 in a good matchup against a Washington secondary that lacks speed.
T.Y. Hilton is dealing with a sprained shoulder.
Hilton isn’t playing in the Colts’ second preseason game, and ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters said he injured the shoulder over the weekend, but head coach Frank Reich thinks it’s “not too serious.” Right now, there shouldn’t be much reason for concern, especially considering the chemistry Hilton has with Andrew Luck. However, his status is something to keep an eye on if he misses the team’s third preseason game. We think T.Y. is worth a pick in the third round of fantasy drafts.
Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton haven't missed a beat this year, according to Andrew Walker of Colts.com.
Luck has reportedly found Hilton often throughout training camp, connecting "for big gains just about every day the two work together in 11-on-11 work." Hilton says their connection is "just like when you wake up, you brush your teeth and wash your face." This isn't surprising, but it's still good to hear after Luck was off the field for an entire season. It's also notable that Colts head coach Frank Reich says that when he was hired, Luck told him not to worry about Hilton maybe not running routes exactly as designed because their connection is so strong and he knows what his speedy receiver is going to do. Hilton should be a lock for 1,000 yards after he missed the mark by 34 yards without Luck in 2017.
T.Y. Hilton: "I have to get back to being me" in 2018.
Hilton considered last season, in which he had 966 yards, averaged 16.9 yards per reception, and made the Pro Bowl, a "down" year for him, and he says he "probably took a day or two off" after Week 17. New Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni says Hilton is "obsessed with getting better" and has set a perfect example for the young players throughout the offseason. It certainly sounds like Hilton worked about as hard as any player this offseason, and it should show on the field. Keep in mind, Andrew Luck was out all of last season, and Hilton led the NFL in receiving yards when Luck was healthy in 2016. After finishing outside the top 20 fantasy receivers last season, Hilton should get back to WR1 status in 2018.
T.Y. Hilton: "I'm in the best shape of my life."
Hilton has been working with Colts Director of Sports Performance Russ Jones on a strict diet that's helping him get in such great shape, and the speedy receiver says he feels like it's his "first year" in regards to the type of shape he's in. Hilton says he has relied on fast food in the past but wanted to try something new. 28 is not close to old, but it's a great idea for Hilton to focus on his diet as he gets older. This change should help 2016's league-leader in receiving for both this season and in the years to come. With Andrew Luck returning, Hilton has top-five WR1 upside in fantasy drafts this summer, though there could be some more up and down weeks compared to most WR1 options.
T.Y. Hilton contained in win over the Texans.
Hilton caught just three passes for 14 yards in the 22-13 victory, as he was mostly noticed for trading soft punches with cornerback Jonathan Joseph. Despite not having Andrew Luck all season, Hilton finishes 2017 with a respectable 57 receptions for 966 yards and four touchdowns. The versatile deep threat should be back to his upside WR1 ways if Luck returns to full strength in 2018, making him worth a look as soon as the third round in fantasy drafts. Hilton quietly has 6,827 receiving yards in six seasons.
T.Y Hilton hits 100 yards against the Ravens.
This was Hilton's fourth 100-yard game of the season, as he was targeted 12 times and caught six passes for 100 yards. Hilton more than doubled the yardage of any other Colts receiver, and he did a good job of doing some damage against Baltimore's solid corners. His best reception was probably his toe-drag catch toward the end of the first half which helped set the Colts up a field goal attempt. In the final game of the season, Hilton faces a Texans team that he has a history of putting up huge numbers against.
T.Y. Hilton catches five passes in Colts' loss.
Hilton gained 41 yards on his five receptions (seven targets) against the Broncos. It could've been a big night for Hilton, as he was wide open on a crossing route that he almost certainly would've taken to the house for a long touchdown given his elite speed, but Jacoby Brissett was scrambling to right and threw an off-target pass. Hilton gets the Ravens next week, and you might need a big play for him to payoff in fantasy lineups.
T.Y. Hilton catches two passes against Buffalo.
In the snowy conditions, there wasn't much going through the air for either team in Week 14. Hilton had 20 yards on his two receptions, and they both came on the same drive late in the game.

T.Y. Hilton scores against the Jaguars.
Hilton caught three passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 loss, with the score coming in the third quarter on an in-breaking route that Hilton took untouched to the end zone for 40 yards.

T.Y. Hilton catches two passes against the Titans.
Hilton, who was targeted five times in the Week 12 loss, again couldn't get much going against a Tennessee pass defense, gaining 15 yards on his two receptions. Rookie cornerback Adoree' Jackson and company have done a great job on Hilton this season, which might be something to keep in mind in 2018 and beyond. hilton has obviously been boom or bust this season, and he's a risky play in Week 13 against the Jaguars.
T.Y. Hilton held in check as Colts fall to Steelers.
Hilton caught two passes for 23 yards, as Pittsburgh made it a focus to not get beat by the speedster, which allowed Chester Rogers and Donte Moncrief to both catch touchdowns of 60+ yards. T.Y. will be a low-end WR2 option when Indianapolis returns from their bye.
T.Y. Hilton (groin) is active for Week 10.
It’s good news for fantasy owners after Hilton exploded last week, but he’s more of a low-end WR2 against the Steelers’ stingy pass defense. It might be worth looking elsewhere in PPR leagues if possible.
T.Y. Hilton explodes in Week 9 win.
Hilton, who has had some huge games against Houston in the past, caught five passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns. The first score came on a 45-yard reception in the first quarter, but the highlight was an 80-yard touchdown in the third quarter where he jumped and landed on the ground to avoid the defender touching him in the open field, got up, and ran into the end zone. T.Y. is usually a more reliable play at home, but he has a difficult matchup next week when the Colts host the Steelers. Still, he's a high-upside WR2/FLEX option.
T.Y. Hilton gets seven targets against the Bengals.
Hilton's seven targets were second on the team, but he was only able to catch two passes for 15 yards in a Colts' loss. He could've had a couple other catches, but one he was out of bounds by the sideline, and the other was a drop over the middle. Through eight games, last year's league-leading receiver is on pace for 58 receptions for 1,054 yards and two touchdowns. He'll look to improve that pace next week against the Texans, a team he's had a lot of success against in the past. Hilton is due for another big game soon.
T.Y. Hilton shows remorse for comments about the Colts offensive line.
After yesterday's loss to the Jaguars in which the team gave up ten sacks, Hilton said they receivers were winning their matchups but the offensive line needs to do better. Hilton said today he "stabbed them in the back" by saying that and was wrong, while adding that he plans to apologize to each of them individually. The dynamic receiver does seen truly sorry for the comments, and he hasn't shown selfish qualities in the past. Hopefully they can put this behind them and move forward as they get ready for the Bengals this week.
T.Y. Hilton gets eight targets in Week 7.
The Jaguars did a good job of limiting Hilton, as he had only two receptions for 27 yards in the game. After the shutout loss in which Jacoby Brissett was sacked ten times by Jacksonville, Hilton said the offensive line needs to play better—so hopefully nothing bad comes of publicly criticizing his teammates. Hilton is averaging 19.0 yards per catch this season even without Andrew Luck, but he's had two quiet games in a row. He gets the Bengals next week, but the game is on the road in Cincinnati.
Titans limit T.Y. Hilton in Colts' loss.
Hilton had a good matchup in terms of fantasy points allowed heading into the game, but the Titans did a nice job on the speedy receiver. He caught only one of four targets, with the reception being a 19-yarder on a deep out/corner route from a bunch formation. Hilton also had a couple of end zone targets, including one on a corner route where rookie Adoree' Jackson had great blanket coverage on Hilton and didn't allow him to get open. Both Jackson and veteran Logan Ryan seemed to cover Hilton for most of the night, and they did a good job. Hilton now faces the top-flight Jaguars pass defense in Week 7, but Hilton can get deep against anyone. He's probably best as only a FLEX option for the matchup, though.

T.Y. Hilton caught three passes for 57 yards on Sunday.
Hilton also lost a fumble, and it's clear that he's going to struggle for as long as Andrew Luck is out of the lineup.

T.Y. is a no-doubt WR1 in the fantasy playoffs.
T.Y. Hilton (back) listed as questionable.
