Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 18, but is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton will be receiving Fridays off but will be ready for games unless he is dealing with an injury. He showed decent chemistry with Philip Rivers but probably will be able to post better numbers as his connection with Rivers improves. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Indianapolis Colts TE Jack Doyle (ankle, knee) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 2 versus the Minnesota Vikings. DE Justin Houston (calf) did not practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 18, while WR Michael Pittman Jr. (toe) also did not practice Friday; both players are listed as questionable. S Julian Blackmon (knee) was limited Friday, while WR Zach Pascal (ankle) and CB Isaiah Rodgers (ankle) were both upgraded to full participation; all three players are also listed as questionable. S Malik Hooker (illness) practiced in full Friday and no longer appears on the injury report. DL Denico Autry (rest), OT Anthony Castonzo (rest) and T.Y. Hilton (rest) also did not practice Friday but have been removed from the injury report.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton looks to bounce back against the Vikings after a disappointing Week 1 performance. Hilton was only able to amass four catches for 53 yards on nine targets in a losing effort against the Jaguars. He will look to bounce back this week against a Minnesota team that struggled last week against Green Bay's No. 1 receiver Davante Adams. They surrendered a whopping 14 catches for 156 yards and two touchdowns against Adams. Hilton had two drops as well last week, so his fantasy day could have looked a little different if he grabbed those. He enters this week with a DFS price of $5,700 and should be considered a good WR2 option if he can convert some of those targets into catches.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton caught four of his nine targets for 53 yards and dropped two passes in a 27-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton dropped a couple of crucial passes in the fourth quarter in an otherwise average opener, but he did tie for the team high in targets. Assuming he stays healthy, Hilton should manage WR3 production as one of the go-to options in the passing attack.
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 11, because of a rest day and is not on the injury report for Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton probably will skip practices on Fridays this season to make sure he is ready for each game. He will be working with a new quarterback this season but will continue to be the main option in the passing game. He can be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Indianapolis Colts S Julian Blackmon (knee) was limited in practice all week but has been ruled out for Week 1 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. LB Matthew Adams (ankle) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Sept. 11, and listed as questionable. OT Anthony Castonzo (rest, oblique), C Ryan Kelly (rest, knee), DE Justin Houston (rest, calf), DL Denico Autry (rest) and WR T.Y. Hilton (rest) did not practice Friday but have been removed from the injury report. WR Dezmon Patmon (knee) and OG Quenton Nelson (back) practiced in full Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (unknown) was not spotted at the team's practice Friday, Sept. 11. A team beat reporter, though, speculated that it could simply be a rest day for Hilton as Friday is typically a day when Indianapolis veterans rest.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton is not known to be battling any injury issues for a change, and we should get clarity one way or the other soon. In the meantime, plan on using him as a WR2/flex.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton will start the 2020 season fully healthy after playing only 10 games in 2019. Last year was just the third time in Hilton's eight-year career in which he failed to reach 1,000 yards receiving. Hilton will enter the year as the clear No. 1 option at receiver in front of young talentsParris Campbell and Michael Pittman Jr. He will match up against Jacksonville in Week 1, a team that ranked 11th against the pass last season. If Hilton shows he can be as productive as he was pre-injury, he will be a viable WR2 option in Week 1 for new quarterback Philip Rivers.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton said Thursday, Sept. 10, that he feels as healthy as he's been since 2016 when he led the league with 1,448 receiving yards.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton will be playing with a new QB this year in Philip Rivers, and if he's truly healthier than he has been in years, he could easily outperform his WR3 draft status/rankings.
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton has developed a terrific rapport with his new QB, Philip Rivers, in training camp thus far. The 30-year-old receiver has not missed a beat, even catching a deep 47-yard touchdown from Rivers in camp just a couple of days ago. Rivers went on to praise Hilton's abilities as a receiver along with his overall happiness about their growing chemistry on the field. The veteran wideout only played 10 games last season as he was nursing calf and quad injuries. He finished with a career-low 45 receptions and 501 yards, along with five touchdowns. Hilton still enters the season as the WR1 on the team, but he will face competition for targets from youngsters like Michael Pittman Jr., Zach Pascal, and Parris Campbell. He should be considered a WR2 in fantasy.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) passed his physical Wednesday, Aug. 12, and was activated from the active/Non-Football Injury list.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton has been plagued by soft-tissue injuries, and this hamstring injury adds more trepidation. He's a WR3 that you need a backup plan for, but he has upside there as well.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is entering the final season of a five-year, $65 million contract. 'If this is my last year (in Indianapolis), I will give it all I've got,' Hilton said recently in an interview with an Indianapolis TV station.
Fantasy Spin: Hilton will turn 31 in November, has missed a total of eight games over the last two seasons due to injuries and is no longer a sure-fire WR/WR2 consideration. Value him as a low-end WR2 with new QB Philip Rivers at the helm.
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) is reportedly feeling good and believes he has 'maybe a couple more days' before he is ready to practice, although the team's training staff may hold him back for a week just to be on the safe side.
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.
