Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is 'clearly' team's top receiver


Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is 'clearly' team's top receiver

Colts beat writer Josh Wilson says that Hilton is 'clearly the one receiver, [Colts WR Reggie Wayne @Reggie_Wayne87] is the two.' Wilson relegates newly-acquired Colts WR Hakeem Nicks to the WR3 role, and expects that when Nicks comes on to the field, Wayne will play the slot position - not Hilton. With Wayne on the sidelines with a knee injury in 2013, Hilton posted the highest stats of his career, catching 82 balls for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is good news for Hilton's usage in the Colts offense. While there was never a serious threat that he would be unseated by Nicks or Wayne, it is nice to hear that he's clearly the team's top receiving option going into 2014. And Wayne's presence on the field may help Hilton statistically, as defenses deal with two strong receivers. Hilton is appropriately valued as the 24th WR in drafts, Wayne may be undervalued as the 37th, and with this news, Nicks now looks overvalued as the 43rd WR off the board.
