Fantasy Tip: Hilton could be a game-time decision if he is not able to practice Friday, Dec. 19. Hilton would be facing a solid Dallas Cowboys pass defense if he is able to play this week. Hilton has a price of $7,300 on FantasyScore, but owners should have a backup plan ready if he is not active for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch Hilton's practice participation during the week to see if he is able to play in Week 16. Hilton would be facing a solid Dallas Cowboys pass defense this week but has put up solid numbers each week. Hilton costs $7,300 on FantasyScore and could be a solid option if he is healthy.

Indianapolis Colts TE Dwayne Allen played 53 of the team's 68 offensive snaps in Week 15 against the Houston Texans, and TE Coby Fleener played in 40 of the snaps. It was necessary to have Allen on the field for much of the day in order to help block DE J.J. Watt. Allen also had a touchdown in the game.
Fantasy Tip: Allen ($5,500) clearly is back close to full health, which will push Fleener's FantasyScore value down significantly to end the season. Allen should be a pretty solid play this week in daily games, too, as the Dallas Cowboys have been vulnerable to tight ends in 2014.

The Indianapolis Colts have made it a point to improve their run defense ever since New England Patriots RB Jonas Gray put up 201 rushing yards against them on Nov. 16. Since then, they are giving up an average of 103 yards a game, which is more than seven yards below their season average, although they've faced the Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Redskins, Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans in that span of four games. The Colts finished ranked 26th against the run last year and currently rank 16th in the league.
Fantasy Tip: The Dallas Cowboys will present the Colts with a bigger test this week, even if DeMarco Murray ($8,200) sits out with a broken hand. If Murray is out, Joseph Randle ($5,900) and Lance Dunbar ($3,000) could both be worth playing at FantasyScore.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) had his MRI exam come back negative Monday, Dec. 15. The team is hoping that Hilton will be able to practice Wednesday, Dec. 17, or Thursday, Dec. 18. Hilton finished with four catches for 50 yards in Week 15 against the Houston Texans.
Fantasy Tip: Hilton looks like he'll be fine to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16, and we like his chances of bouncing back. The Cowboys have allowed 27.23 average fantasy points to receivers in the last four weeks.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) left the Week 15 game against the Houston Texans due to a hamstring injury. After the game he had his left hamstring wrapped. "I'll know more after I go get an MRI and talk with the doctors," Hilton said Sunday, Dec. 14.
Fantasy Tip: Check back after Hilton gets his MRI results. It might not be until Friday when the official injury report comes out before we know his status for Week 16.

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne (triceps), who is dealing with a torn triceps, said he is fine as long as he's on the field and playing, as he's expected to do in Week 15 against the Houston Texans. "If I'm out there playing, then I'm good," Wayne said. "Point blank."
Fantasy Tip: Wayne ($4,500) has been noticeably affected by his injury lately, as he has no more than three catches and 31 yards in the last three games, as Donte Moncrief ($3,100) has emerged. Although the matchup is excellent against the Texans, we find it hard to recommend Wayne for your FantasyScore lineups.

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had nine catches for 223 yards and a touchdown in the matchup against the Houston Texans earlier this year, and he has 31 grabs for 611 yards and six touchdowns in five career games against them. Hilton has had at least 11 yards in three of the five games against the Texans, and he went for 78 yards in each of the other two contests. Other teams often provide help over the top against Hilton, but the Texans typically only use CB Johnathan Joseph on Hilton.
Fantasy Tip: The Texans have also been good at allowing plenty of big plays through the air this year, so Hilton ($7,300) makes tons of sense for FantasyScore lineups this weekend. Donte Moncrief ($3,100), who is emerging as a secondary receiving option, could be a fine sleeper if Houston tries to take Hilton out of the game plan.

Indianapolis Colts OG Joe Reitz (ankle) and OG Hugh Thornton (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and have been ruled out for Week 15. FS Mike C. Adams (back), FS Sergio Brown (illness), CB Darius Butler (illness), CB Vontae Davis (concussion), LB D'Qwell Jackson (ribs), FS LaRon Landry (illness), OT Xavier Nixon (foot), LB Andy Studebaker (hamstring) and LB Erik Walden (knee) fully participated in practice and are listed as probable.

Fantasy Tip: Wayne has not been much of a factor in the passing game the last three weeks but does have a favorable matchup in Week 15. Wayne costs $4,500 on FantasyScore and could be a flex option for owners.
