Fantasy Impact:

Hilton and the Colts seem to have a mutual interest of getting a long-term deal done. The eight-year veteran is under contract only through this season and is set to become an unrestricted free agent. Neither side wants to let that happen and Hilton has made it very clear he intends to retire after his next long-term extension is up with the Colts. For his career, Hilton has caught 552 balls for 8,598 yards, and 45 touchdowns. He’ll be expected to be the leader in the wide receiver room for youngsters Parris Campbell, Zach Pascal, and Michael Pittman Jr. Hilton and the rest of the crew will be catching passes this year from Philip Rivers, which should in theory help with their production. Think of Hilton as Rivers’ new “Keenan Allen.” He’s currently ranked #24 in FantasyPros consensus WR rankings, but could easily find himself as a top-15 WR should he stay healthy and build a chemistry early on with his new QB.
