WR - IND
From the transaction wire Wednesday morning, the Indianapolis Colts have removed WR T.Y. Hilton from the Active/Non-Football Injury List.
Hilton had a minor hamstring issue throughout the offseason but it appears that issue is behind him. He has passed his physical and is now on the active roster and ready to roll for the start of the regular season in less than one month. Hilton, if he can remain healthy, should be the WR1 option for new Colts QB Philip Rivers this season. Consider Hilton a solid WR3 with obvious WR2 upside should he remain healthy throughout the year.
T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) says he expects to be back "in a couple days."
Hilton suffered a "mild" hamstring injury while away from the team this summer. Soft tissue injuries are always scary when it comes to a speedster like Hilton, but as of now there's no reason to worry about this being a serious issue.
Colts WR T.Y. Hilton was placed on the non-football injury list with a mild hamstring injury he suffered prior to training camp.
Hilton has missed eight games the past two seasons due to injury, and now we hear of another one, albeit minor, popping up a month before the regular season is set to begin. While considered minor, soft tissue injuries can linger if not treated correctly. This situation is definitely something to monitor, and if Hilton had to miss time, Parris Campbell and Michael Pittman Jr. would become the Colts WR1 and WR2.
WR T.Y. Hilton is "who this pass offense runs through," said Colts' OC Nick Sirianni. He expects the "2018 version of Hilton," when he hauled in 76 catches, 1,270 yards and seven touchdowns.
Hilton received high praise from the Colts' OC, who believes the 30-year-old WR will have a bounce back season. “I expect a great bounce back from a year he had a lot of injuries,” said Sirianni. “I expect the 2018 version of him (76 catches, 1,270 yards, 7 touchdowns). If T.Y. stays healthy, there’s no doubt that’s what we’ll see. He’s still the main piece of this offense. T.Y. Hilton is who this pass offense runs through.” The 30-year-old was limited to 10 games due to a calf injury. He has one season remaining in his five-year, $65 million extension and wants to be a "Colt for life." Hilton is a boom or bust WR2 in fantasy and is currently 25th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings.
WR T.Y. Hilton told the media recently that he wants to be a “Colt for life,” but also that talks of an extension have died down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
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.
