Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Sunday, Aug. 2, because of a mild hamstring injury he suffered while training, according to a source. He is not expected to be sidelined for long.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton may miss a few practices but is on track for the start of the regular season. He will be working with a new quarterback but is still the main option in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is 'still the main piece of this offense' and 'who this pass offense runs through,' according to offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni. 'I expect a great bounce back from a year he had a lot of injuries. I expect the 2018 version of him (76 catches, 1,270 yards, seven touchdowns). If T.Y. stays healthy, there's no doubt that's what we'll see. ... He's still the main piece of this offense. T.Y. Hilton is who this pass offense runs through,' Sirianni said.
Fantasy Spin: Especially heading into a season in which veteran players will be as important as they have been in recent memory due to the lack of offseason work, Hilton should enter 2020 as the clear-cut alpha dog in this passing attack. Michael Pittman Jr. and Parris Campbell can be expected to steal his thunder from time to time, but the 30-year-old still had plenty of explosiveness last year before soft-tissue injuries compromised his game. Hilton should be considered a high-risk, high-reward WR2 for fantasy purposes.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton finds himself in a more crowded receiver group after the addition of second-round wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr., but Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni says that Hilton is still the "lead dog" on the team. If new quarterback Philip Rivers still has the arm strength that's helped him succeed with the Chargers, Hilton could be a big winner of this offseason, with Sirianni saying that Hilton's "flat-out speed" can help the team out in the vertical passing game, something we'll see more of with Rivers in town. Hilton's being ranked as a fringe WR2 right now, but he has the upside to finish as a high-end WR2 if things work out with Rivers.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton, who is entering a contract year in 2020, said, "I wanna be a Colt for life, but it takes two sides to get it done." Hilton is scheduled to make $14.5 million this season. The two sides started talking about an extension before the coronavirus lockdown began, and Hilton hopes they can rekindle those talks soon. The 30-year-old played in just 10 games due to injury in 2019, catching a disappointing 45 passes for 501 yards and five touchdowns. But with quarterback Philip Rivers under center for at least this season, Hilton has a great chance to bounce back as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 with better health.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is entering the final year of his contract with the team but has made it clear he would like to be with the team for his entire NFL career. Hilton said there were some conversations with the Colts on a new deal before the COVID shutdown. At that point, talks were tabled but it's possible they may resume. Hilton thinks his next contract will be his last.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will continue to be a focal point in the passing game even though he struggled with injuries last season, according to offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni. Sirianni said the team may throw more deep passes to Hilton in 2020.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton was limited to 10 games this past season and finished with only 501 yards. He should have more success with Philip Rivers as the quarterback and will continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Colts. He should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues in 2020.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton needs more depth behind him at the receiver position, according to general manager Chris Ballard. 'Do we need to add more explosive elements to our offense? Yeah, we do,' Ballard said. 'Just want somebody who can catch the ball and go score.'
