The return of Andrew Luck was a huge plus for Hilton last year, leading to his fifth 1,000-yard season. Hilton was 14th overall in fantasy receiver scoring despite missing two games. He had five 100-yard games. The big knock on Hilton continues to be a lack of scores, having six touchdowns last year. His career high in touchdowns is seven. Hilton has 1,000-yard seasons five of his last six. Hilton is the No. 1 receiver in the Colts pass-first offense. Hilton is a small receiver that lacks some strength and size, but makes up for that with plus hands and big-play ability. Hilton is an explosive player with big-play ability whenever he touches the ball. Fantasy Outlook: His lack of scores holds him back from being an elite fantasy receiver but he is just outside that group. You could still take him as a low-end No. 1 and get good production from him. He will get his catches and yards in this offense. Expect around 85 receptions for 1,300 yards and eight touchdowns.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill led all receivers with an 11.47 yards per target average in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus. Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans ranked second at 11.29, while Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton and Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks tied for third at 10.95. Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones rounded out the top five at 10.10.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton averaged 2.64 receiving yards per route run from the slot in 2018, which ranked fourth among wide receivers who played at least 100 snaps.
Fantasy Spin: Despite missing two games and being at less than something than full power in a couple others, Hilton bounced back with Andrew Luck's return last season to finish 15th among fantasy wideouts. Look for a low-end WR1 finish if Hilton (and Luck) have reasonably good health fortune in 2019.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) fully participated in practice Tuesday, May 21.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton is expected to be limited this offseason but should be a full participant during training camp. He has been one of the better receivers in the NFL over the last several seasons and could be a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) did not appear to be hampered at all Tuesday, May 21, by the 2018 ankle injury that was supposed to keep him limited in practice this offseason, according to Steven Holder of The Athletic.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) likely will be limited during offseason workouts because the team wants him to rest after dealing with ankle injuries last season.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton has posted at least 1,000 yards in five of the last six seasons and will continue to be the focal point in the passing game for the Colts. He can be considered a No. 1 receiver in all leagues this upcoming season.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has high hopes for the team's offense in 2019. 'This offense is going to be scary,' Hilton said Tuesday, April 30.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton missed two games in 2018 and was somewhat limited in others, but still caught 76 of 120 targets for 1,270 yards and six TDs to finish as a WR2. He should challenge, though, to return to the WR1 ranks this coming season.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted career season highs last season with 90.7 receiving yards per game and a 63.3-percent catch rate despite battling though various injuries.
Fantasy Spin: Even if the Colts add another wide receiver this offseason, Hilton figures to remain a top target for Andrew Luck and is a high-end WR2 consideration in drafts.
