"Major surprise" if Hilton does not play | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport would consider it a "major surprise" if Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) doesn't play against the Texans today, "based on his history and the importance of the game." Hilton is officially a game-time decision and won't be close to 100% if he suits up. That obviously adds risk to his fantasy stock. But there's also big upside against a Houston squad that he usually torches.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) isn't listed on the final injury report for Saturday's game against the Chiefs. He had been listed as questionable the past few weeks, so it's possible he's in better shape now -- although Hilton still didn't practice at all this week. Regardless, he's a nice fantasy play in the Divisional Round after tallying 85+ yards in 4 of his last 5 games. WR Ryan Grant (toe) is out again, leaving Dontrelle Inman, Chester Rogers and Zach Pascal as Indy's WRs behind Hilton.

Colts WRs T.Y. Hilton (ankle) and Dontrelle Inman (shoulder, finger) are active for today's game against the Texans. Hilton has been playing effectively through this ankle injury for the past month and remains a high-upside fantasy play vs. a Houston defense he routinely torches. Inman and Chester Rogers will serve as the Colts' #2 and #3 WRs today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that "the belief is" Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will play today against the Texans. That's certainly been our assumption, despite the questionable tag. Hilton played through such designations each of the past 2 weeks. He continued to miss practice all week, though, and carries some risk. He did manage regular playing time each of the final 2 games, however, topping an 80% snap share in each.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Texans. He didn't practice all week and still isn't close to 100%. (HC Frank Reich said Friday that Hilton would have likely missed a week or 2 late in the season if the games weren't so important.) But he's been playing through this ankle injury -- and effectively. He'll be out there on Saturday.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Titans. He’s a strong fantasy play even at less than 100%. Hilton torched the Titans for a 9-155-2 line back in Week 11.
