While the Indianapolis Colts will have more than $30 million to spend, a bunch of big name free agents this offseason are not likely. New contracts for WR T.Y. Hilton and QB Andrew Luck are on the horizon, so much of that cap space will be saved for re-signing current players or cheaper free agents.
Fri, 10 Jan 2014 15:29:13 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has been lining up at various receiver spots this season to make it difficult for opposing defenses to game plan for him. He has caught 68 passes for 895 yards and five touchdowns in his last 10 games.
Sun, 29 Dec 2013 16:09:34 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted 11 receptions for 155 yards in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Both marks were career highs.
Sun, 22 Dec 2013 08:37:42 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is active for the team's Week 16 game.

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 15:00:59 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to check the inactive list to see if Hilton is able to play. He should be considered a solid starting option if he is able to play.
Fri, 20 Dec 2013 08:32:44 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) returned to practice Friday, Dec. 20.
Thu, 19 Dec 2013 15:27:09 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 19.
Fantasy Tip: Hilton's shoulder injury isn't believed to be serious after he had a career-high eight catches in Week 15. He has a strong matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend. Consider him a decent WR2.
Sun, 15 Dec 2013 19:27:12 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton posted a career-high five receptions in the first quarter of the Week 15 game against the Houston Texans, and he finished with a career-high eight grabs for 78 yards. He needs just one catch in the final two games to pass former WR Bill Brooks for the fourth-most catches in a player's first two seasons.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 09:09:25 -0800
Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is fighting through a minor shoulder injury.
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 15:56:54 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had just two catches for seven yards while playing 45 snaps in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals. In the last four weeks, Hilton has just 17 catches for 135 yards. Hilton had back-to-back 100-yard receiving games following WR Reggie Wayne's (knee) injury, but since then, opposing secondaries are clamping down on Hilton and giving him more double coverages. "I'm seeing double teams. Sometimes they roll the coverage my way. It just means guys got to step up, which they did, so we're moving in the right direction. (LaVon) Brazill, DHB (Darrius Heyward-Bey) made a big play and Da'Rick (Rogers) making plays, so as long as they continue to keep doing that, we should be fine."
Fantasy Tip: As a result, Da'Rick Rogers and LaVon Brazill have seen more opportunities. Rogers has benefitted the most, so maybe his emergence will draw some attention off of Hilton. Until then, temper your expectations with Hilton as more of a weak WR2.
Fri, 06 Dec 2013 12:51:49 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is listed as probable for Week 14.

Thu, 05 Dec 2013 15:21:29 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Wed, 04 Dec 2013 13:11:40 -0800

Sun, 01 Dec 2013 15:45:17 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Chris Rainey was used on kickoff and punt returns in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans, spelling WR T.Y. Hilton on punt returns.

Fri, 29 Nov 2013 12:18:36 -0800

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 13:51:16 -0800
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Fantasy Tip: Hilton's resting was expected. He is still expected to be fine for the Week 13 game against the Tennessee Titans, and makes for a solid low-end WR2 or must-start WR3 or flex play in most fantasy leagues.
Wed, 27 Nov 2013 10:59:24 -0800
Indianapolis Colts QB T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is not expected to practice Wednesday, Nov. 27, but is likely to be OK for the team's Week 13 game.

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is expected to return to the Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals. He had his shoulder checked on the sideline, not for concussion was previously reported.
Sun, 24 Nov 2013 14:07:26 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (head) left the Week 12 game against the Arizona Cardinals due to an apparent head injury. It appeared he was being tested for concussion on the bench. Hilton appeared to hit his head diving for a ball. He refused to be carted off, and walked to the sidelines under his own power.
Mon, 04 Nov 2013 20:55:09 -0800
Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said Monday, Nov. 4, that WR T.Y. Hilton will remain on the punt return unit despite the fact he is starting at wide receiver. "This guy's smart. He knows how to get down and protect himself," Pagano said.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners never like to see their player risking potential injury while not benefiting their team. Still, Hilton has emerged as a must-start fantasy option in all leagues now that he appears to be the top option in the Indianapolis passing attack.
Mon, 04 Nov 2013 08:19:26 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had seven catches for 121 yards and three touchdowns in Week 9.

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 19:23:44 -0700
One NFL personnel executive said Friday, Nov. 1, that he expects WR T.Y. Hilton to take on a "front line, prominent role" following the loss of WR Reggie Wayne (knee).
Fantasy Tip: Hilton should still be considered more of a WR3/4 fantasy option heading into Week 9, especially since the Houston Texans rank first in the NFL in defense.
Mon, 28 Oct 2013 19:37:45 -0700
Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano is uncertain who will step up as the team's No. 3 wide receiver behind WRs Darrius Heyward-Bey and T.Y. Hilton with WR Reggie Wayne (knee) done for the season. WRs LaVon Brazill and Griff Whalen are expected to battle for the job.
Fantasy Tip: The winner of the No. 3 battle is still not a recommended fantasy option at this point. Brazill has speed to burn, and seems like he should be the favorite, but unless Heyward-Bey or Hilton also go down, don't waste the roster spot.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 19:42:38 -0700

Fri, 27 Sep 2013 11:54:06 -0700
Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (toe) will play in the team's Week 4 game, and he sat out practice Friday, Sept. 27, as a precaution.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Hilton is a full go. With Indy likely becoming more run-centric, Hilton isn't an obvious weekly start these days. The matchup is pretty nice, however, against the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend.
Fri, 27 Sep 2013 08:26:35 -0700
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (foot) is out of practice Friday, Sept. 27, with his right foot in a walking boot.

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 11:56:01 -0700
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is probable for Week 3.

Thu, 19 Sep 2013 16:00:52 -0700
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 19.
Wed, 18 Sep 2013 14:22:12 -0700
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (groin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Monitor Hilton's progress throughout the week, but at this point we would expect him to play. Stay tuned as the week goes on.
Wed, 11 Sep 2013 09:46:14 -0700
Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said the offense needs to get more touches for WR T.Y. Hilton moving forward. Hilton was on the field for only 24 snaps in the team's Week 1 game.
Fantasy Tip: Hilton had a pretty quiet week with only 20 yards but should be more involved in the offense this week if Pagano gets his way. Hilton should be in the starting lineup because his targets should increase.
Wed, 28 Aug 2013 08:57:37 -0700
The Indianapolis Colts have kept WR Darrius Heyward-Bey as a starter over speedy WR T.Y. Hilton, and the teams cites Heyward-Bey's blocking skills in the run game as a major factor.
Fantasy Tip: Still, while Hilton is expected to be on the field in passing-only situations, he still has bigger play ability. Plus, this isn't engraved in stone, and could change as the season progresses. However, initially, Hilton might get off to a little bit of a slow start. As far as Heyward-Bey, he should still be nothing more than a WR3/4 or flex option with little upside.
Sun, 11 Aug 2013 13:18:35 -0700
Indianapolis Colts second-year WR T.Y. Hilton said the game has really slowed down for him this season. He said he's able to read defenses better and has received a lot of help from QB Andrew Luck and WR Reggie Wayne in elevating his game to the next level.
Wed, 31 Jul 2013 10:17:56 -0700
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is battling WR Darrius Heyward-Bey for the No. 2 receiver spot in training camp. Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has used Hilton all over the field, lining up outside on the left and right, and also in the slot. Hilton is also expected to serve as the team's primary punt returner.
Fantasy Tip: Hilton has big-play ability, leading the team with seven touchdown grabs in his rookie season, and a strong 17.2 yards per reception. Hilton is solid WR3 or flex play in most standard leagues, and he has even more value in those formats which reward longer touchdowns. Hilton is also a strong WR2 play in leagues which reward individual return yardage.
Wed, 31 Jul 2013 10:17:02 -0700
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has developed quite the rapport with QB Andrew Luck. The duo spent last month working with WR Reggie Wayne in South Florida, as they each look to improve upon their rookie season performances.
Tue, 30 Jul 2013 09:50:42 -0700
Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has been impressive the work of WR T.Y. Hilton so far during training camp. "That guy's a freak. I'd hate to be the guy on the opposite side of the ball (of Hilton). He just keeps growing. He's put so much time in, not only in the weight room, but in the classroom. Really impressed with his start and where he's going," Pagano said Tuesday, July 30.
Fantasy Tip: Hilton showed some big-play ability in 2012, and he will again be a downfield threat for Andrew Luck. Reggie Wayne is getting a little long in the tooth, so it might not be long before Hilton is the top wideout target on the team for fantasy owners.
Tue, 30 Jul 2013 09:01:04 -0700
Indianapolis Colts WR LaVon Brazill admitted he made a mistake in the offseason, and he now has a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy to start the season as a result. Brazill said he needs to decide between "money and marijuana." That isn't his only battle. He is also vying for the fourth receiver spot behind WRs Reggie Wayne, Darrius Heyward-Bey and T.Y. Hilton, so his roster spot isn't necessarily a given.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to avoid Brazill to start the season, even if he wins the No. 4 job, due to his four-game suspension. He has big-play ability, but with plenty of depth at the position, it will likely take an injury or two to open up a more prominent role for the former Ohio Bobcat.
Sun, 28 Jul 2013 09:25:12 -0700
Indianapolis Colts WR Darrius Heyward-Bey lined up with the first-team offense during practice Sunday, July 28. WR T.Y. Hilton may be used as the No. 3 receiver.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had three receptions for a team-high 78 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 game against the Houston Texans.
Fantasy Tip: Hilton has managed 50 or more receiving yards in three straight games, and four of his past five outings. He also has four touchdowns during the five-game span. Treat him as a WR3/4 or flex fantasy play heading into Week 16 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Sat, 08 Dec 2012 05:44:22 -0800
The Indianapolis Colts had interest in Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson during the third round of the NFL Draft to serve as a backup to QB Andrew Luck before selecting WR T.Y. Hilton.

Mon, 26 Nov 2012 07:58:47 -0800

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (head) left the game early Week 12 because of a head injury and is considered questionable to return.
Sun, 18 Nov 2012 20:39:36 -0800
Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had six receptions for 100 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 11 game against the New England Patriots.
Fantasy Tip: Hilton has managed three 100-yard games this season, while no other rookie wide receiver has eclipsed the century mark as of yet. Even so, Hilton should still be treated as more of a low-end WR3 or 'flex' play heading into Week 12.
