2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Nov-21-2015 by Shawn Childs


UPDATE (11/21): Much like the rest of the Colts' offense, Hilton has been a bit of a disappointment this season. He has predictably taken a step back in 2015. As of now he's barely a WR2. While he hasn't been awful, he also hasn't been great. Only once has he hit the 100-yard mark and he only has three touchdowns. Now that Luck is sidelined, possibly for the rest of the Fantasy season, Hilton's value could take a hit. Matt Hasselbeck is serviceable but can't use Hilton to stretch the field like Luck can.

Luck threw the ball a ton to Hilton over the first eight games in 2014. T.Y. had seven games with nine targets or more to start the year with three 100-yard receiving games and one game with 200-plus yards. At the mid-point of the season, he had 53 catches for 862 yards with two TDs on 78 targets. Over his next four games, defenses took Hilton away from Luck (15/279/3 on 23 targets). T.Y. had a career-high 19 targets in Week 14, which led to 10 catches for 150 yards and two TDs. A hamstring injury in the fourth quarter in Week 15 led to a missed game in Week 16 and limited action in Week 17. His catch rate in the playoffs was only 39.3 percent as Luck struggled to get him the ball. The Colts don't have a great line, which limits his upside in big plays. Last year Hilton caught 21 passes of 20 yards or more and six for 40 yards or more. The addition of WR Andre Johnson should create more open field for Hilton in some games as defense will need to decide which weapon they want to defend. He will be an important part of Luck's success and I expect him to catch close to 100 passes with a chance at 1,500 yards. Ideally, a fantasy owner would like him to be a pass-catching machine along the lines of WR Antonio Brown. T.Y. lacks size (5'10' and 183 lbs.) and his style hurts his TD production in the red zone. Hilton has a top-12 WR opportunity in 2015.

5.06 Gridiron Experts - @MikeRigz - Just recently the NFL Network re-showed the playoff game between the Chiefs and Colts. Which was arguably the game of the year. I had forgotten what a game charger Hilton was in that contest. That performance alone pushed me to take him over DeSean.
