According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "there is optimism" that Colts WR T.Y. Hilton will be able to return from his quad injury tonight against the Chiefs. Hilton is questionable after putting in limited workouts Thursday and Friday. The Sunday night kickoff for that game means most fantasy owners will have to make the call on whether to play Hilton before knowing if he'll be active. If you do want to wait for Hilton, potential fill-ins who might be available on the waiver wire include Deon Cain, Zach Pascal, Rashard Higgins (questionable, knee) and several 49ers.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton has been placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list with a hamstring issue. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero calls it a "mild" injury that Hilton suffered getting ready for camp. Still, it's not ideal for a 30-year-old wideout who's missed 8 games over the past 2 seasons We'll keep a close eye on the situation.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Wednesday that WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) avoided a setback in Monday night's loss to the Saints and will get more playing time in the final 2 weeks of the season. Hilton played just 52% of the offensive snaps in New Orleans but racked up 9 targets. Assuming he's closer to a full-go against the Panthers this weekend, Hilton will jump back into the fantasy-starter mix.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Saints. He's been dealing with this calf injury since October and only got in 2 limited practices this week. He's a risky fantasy play tonight.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) is "trending in the right direction" for Monday night's game against the Saints, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. A final decision won't come until pregame warmups, though. The last time we saw Hilton, he played just 37% of the Colts' offensive snaps and caught 3 of 6 targets for 18 yards. Don't expect him to be a full-go if he's active tonight.

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton (calf) is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision for Monday night's tilt with the Saints, HC Frank Reich said. Hilton didn't practice on Saturday after limited workouts the prior 2 days, but he told the media that it was a scheduled day off and not a setback. The late kickoff makes Hilton a tough guy to count on in Week 15 fantasy lineups. Even if he ends up playing, he'll be a shaky fantasy start at risk of being limited and/or aggravating the calf injury.
