Fantasy Impact: Apparently Hilton is doing his best Kendall Wright 2013 impersonation. He's clearly emerged as one of Luck's favorite targets but his lack of touchdowns is concerning. Regardless, he's a solid WR1 in both PPR and standard.

Fantasy Impact: Hilton was targeted early and often throughout the game. He did have his first touchdown catch of the season called back due to a penalty. T.Y. has come close at other times for a score and is due for his first one soon. Hilton remains a strong WR3/low end WR2. Luck continues to show confidence in him and fantasy owners should do the same as the Colts visit the Texans for a Thursday night showdown.

Fantasy Impact: This is comforting for Hilton owners, after seeing Hilton leave last Sunday's contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars with an ankle injury. He remains an upside play, as the Colts have been spreading the ball around to the bevy of talented receiving options. Given the amount of players on bye this week, Hilton figures to be a WR3 with potential WR2 upside.

T.Y. Hilton was spotted in pads during the early portion of Wednesday's practice. Head coach Chuck Pagano said earlier this week he may be limited in practice today but it is reassuring to see him practicing after exiting last week's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: This is good news for Hilton owners, as it confirms the injury to his ankle is not too severe. As Hilton's greatest asset (for fantasy purposes) is his elusiveness and speed, you will want to monitor his status as the week progresses and make sure there are no setbacks. If Hilton continues to practice throughout the week and plays on Sunday, he should be a low end WR2 in the matchup against the Tennessee Titans.

In his Monday press conference, head coach Chuck Pagano intimated that T.Y. Hilton would be "day to day" with his ankle injury sustained in Sunday's game. He also indicated that Hilton may practice in a limited fashion as early as Wednesday. (Source: Kevin Bowen via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is good news for Hilton owners, as he left Sunday's game early with the injury. If Hilton is slowed by injury, it may be prudent to look elsewhere for a replacement until he is back to full speed. Keep an eye on his status as the week progresses in the event he can't go or is limited for next week's matchup.

Hilton was forced to leave the game early with an ankle injury and did not return to action. He finished with 5 catches for 80 yards on 6 targets. (Source: SB Nation)

Fantasy Impact: The extent of T.Y.'s injury is not yet known. He was on pace to have his best game of the season. Fantasy owners will need to monitor his status throughout the week. If he is to miss any time this will help the fantasy value of Reggie Wayne, Hakeem Nicks, and even Donte Moncrief.

Hilton finished the game with 6 catches for 65 yards on 11 targets. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: T.Y. was targeted early and often throughout the game. He would have had an even better performance if not for a missed pass interference call. Hilton remains the Colts best deep threat but it has to be a bit discouraging for his fantasy owners that he has not yet scored a touchdown. He is more of a WR3 at this point in the season.

By Jason Mullins, Colts Correspondent, Mon, Sep 8th 11:46am EDT

T.Y. Hilton was held largely in check by both the Colts offensive struggles and the Broncos' secondary. Despite the mediocre stat line, it was promising to see Hilton targeted second most on the team, with only veteran Reggie Wayne receiving more targets.

Fantasy Impact: Perhaps most worrisome to Hilton owners would be his use in the red zone. While he was targeted 11 times in total, only one of those targets came in the red zone. Hilton does his best work as a deep threat and excels in the open field. The Broncos did a good job of limiting the big plays and keeping Hilton from taking the top off of the secondary. Looking forward to this week's matchup with the Eagles, Hilton should be a WR3 with WR2 upside.

Hilton made 3 catches for a total of 38 yards in last nights preseason opener. He appeared crisp and very in sync with QB Andrew Luck. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Hilton pulled in all three targets on the evening and was easily Luck's favorite target of the game. It is worth noting that Luck was without veteran Reggie Wayne for the game, so target distribution will be worth monitoring for the rest of the preseason. Hilton should be a good WR2 candidate moving forward.

T.Y. Hilton missed practice on Thursday, nursing a jammed finger. (Source: Colts.com)

Fantasy Impact: Hilton injured his hand in the afternoon session of Wednesday's practice and did not return. The injury did not appear to be major but the Colts will take no chances with the talented wide-out. This will be a situation worth monitoring moving forward, especially if Hilton misses any game time.

T.Y. Hilton injured is hand while trying to reel in a defended pass. It was reported that he had a jammed finger and he did not return to practice. (Source: Colts.com)

Fantasy Impact: Prior to the injury Hilton was effective, reeling in several catches. While the injury appears minimal, the Colts may ease Hilton back due to their rash of early injuries.

T.Y. Hilton showed off his skills in eluding defenders and was able to score two touchdowns in Monday's morning practice session. (Source: Colts.com)

Fantasy Impact: Hilton is poised to have a stellar 2014 season. He was impressive as Andrew Luck's number one option last season after the injury to Reggie Wayne. The return of Wayne and TE Dwayne Allen should allow Hilton more single coverage routes, which should allow Hilton to excel.

Hilton has been on fire, but he has not found the end zone yet. The Steelers rank 9th against fantasy receivers, but QB Andrew Luck keeps him as a WR1.

T.Y. Hilton left Sunday’s Colts vs. Jaguars game in the second quarter after suffering an ankle injury. Prior to the injury, Andrew Luck and Hilton were tearing up the last ranked Jaguars pass defense. Hilton had caught 5 balls on 6 targets for 80 yards, and keep in mind it was only the second quarter. While I wouldn’t get too excited about Hilton’s performance because of the wea...
