It was a painfully slow start to the 2020 season for Hilton, but he finished strong, tallying 27 receptions, 435 yards, and five touchdowns over the final six games of the season where he was the WR8 during that time. Did it take time to develop chemistry with Philip Rivers? If so, are we going to experience a similar slow start in 2021 with Carson Wentz? On top of the chemistry concern, he has to contend with youngsters Parris Campbell and Michael Pittman, who are both another year into their NFL career, and likely ready to take on bigger roles. Hilton's upside feels severely capped, so it's best to treat him as someone you play through bye weeks rather than someone you rely on week-in and week-out.
