Wide Receiver T.Y. Hilton
ESPN Projection: 4 Receptions for 68 Receiving Yards
Hilton is coming off a solid performance against the Detroit Lions. He had six receptions for 79 receiving yards (13 FFPs on ESPN). Unfortunately, he did not have a touchdown.
With Andrew Luck at quarterback, Hilton is a “must start” in most fantasy leagues because Luck constantly targets him. Against the Lions, Hilton led the team with 12 targets.
The one issue owners are likely having with Hilton is his touchdown production. He is usually not a target in the red zone because of his small frame.
As a result, the majority of Hilton’s touchdowns are often big plays (20+ yards). The Broncos do not surrender a lot of those types of plays.
While that fact is concerning, T.Y. Hilton is still worth starting. He is the Colts’ No. 1 receiver, and the Colts’ have usually been very good at moving him around their offensive formations. They will find ways to get him the ball in mismatches; allowing him to break big gains.
