Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Hilton posted a 56-762-5 line in 15 games last year, finishing 42nd among WRs in PPR points and 41st in non-PPR.
  • The 50.8 receiving yards per game were the 2nd lowest mark of his 9-year career -- less than a yard better than his 50.1 per game in 2019.
  • Hilton did improve from a career-low 7.4 yards per target in 2019 to 8.2 last year. That latter mark ranked 45th among 87 WRs with 50+ targets.
  • Hilton finished 39th in yards per route run and 28th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among those 87 WRs.
  • He finished the regular season strong last year, averaging 4.5 catches, 72.5 yards and .8 TDs over his final 6 outings. He was a top 10 WR across fantasy scoring formats during that stretch.
  • But Hilton benefitted from a plush schedule. Five of those final 6 games came against bottom-12 WR defenses.
  • Hilton will turn 32 this November. He’s missed 9 games over the past 3 seasons -- 2 in 2018, 6 in 2019 and 1 last year -- with hamstring, quad, calf and groin injuries.
  • The Colts re-signed him on a 1-year, fully guaranteed, $8 million deal in free agency. It makes Hilton the league’s 14th highest-paid WR in 2021.
  • The Colts return 7 of their top 8 target-getters (including Hilton) from last season, with TE Trey Burton the only notable departure. WR Michael Pittman is a candidate for a year-2 leap, and the Colts will hope to get a healthier season from WR Parris Campbell, who made it through just 1 game last year before a season-ending knee injury.
  • The big change comes at QB, where Carson Wentz replaces Philip Rivers. That’ll be an upgrade if we get 2017-2019 Wentz; a downgrade if it’s 2020 Wentz.
  • The Colts have ranked 27th and 25th in pass rate and 24th and 20th in pass attempts the past 2 seasons. Those teams were quarterbacked by Jacoby Brissett and then Rivers. In 2018 -- Frank Reich’s 1st season as HC and with Andrew Luck under center -- Indy finished 7th in pass rate and 2nd in attempts. We’re projecting the Colts’ 2021 pass rate to settle in between where it was in 2018 and 2019-2020.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Going on 32, Hilton looks like a player in decline. He ranked just outside the top 40 WRs across fantasy scoring formats last year after missing 6 games with multiple injuries in 2019.

The Colts gave him a 1-year, $8 million deal and didn’t make any significant WR additions this offseason, so they’re evidently optimistic that Hilton has 1 more good season left in him. We’re not as optimistic but will keep an eye on Hilton and his rapport with new QB Carson Wentz this summer.

The Colts have activated WR T.Y. Hilton (neck) from IR. He had surgery for a disc issue just before the season and missed the first 5 games. We'd bet on Hilton working back to the #2 spot among Indianapolis wideouts but not pushing Michael Pittman aside.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Friday that he's "cautiously optimistic" WR T.Y. Hilton (neck) will be able to play vs. the Texans this weekend. It sounds like Hilton has been medically cleared and the team just wants to make sure he's back in game shape. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but Hilton shouldn't be in your Week 6 fantasy plans.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will practice on Wednesday for the 1st time since late-August surgery to alleviate a disc issue in his neck. It's still unclear whether he'll play this weekend vs. the Texans. There's room for Hilton to carve out a sizable role in this Colts passing game, but we're not falling over ourselves to add him to fantasy rosters right now.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is expected back before mid-season but will “probably” miss more than 3 games, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Hilton, of course, is coming off surgery to alleviate a disc issue in his neck. We’ll see about further updates on his exact return. His absence probably helps the outlooks for WRs Paris Campbell and Zach Pascal most.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had surgery this week to alleviate his disc issue, according to Stephen Holder of The Athletic. The team has placed the veteran wideout on IR, but GM Chris Ballard reportedly said they expect Hilton back "sooner than later." The IR stint means Hilton will miss at least 3 games, but it sounds like he might not be out much longer than that. Expect Michael Pittman, Parris Campbell and Zach Pascal to work as the top 3 WRs while Hilton is gone.
