Hilton's essentially irrelevant in this offense. He's seeing guys like Marcus Johnson outproduce him, which is never a good sign. Hilton's worth dropping if you're still rostering him. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
As Hilton went into his bye week, here are some receivers who had outscored him through six weeks: Gabriel Davis, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Anthony Miller, and Nelson Agholor. Not great. He did finally post six catches for 69 yards in Week 5, but then fell back into his old ways in Week 6 when he caught just one ball for 11 yards. Something that's becoming a bigger issue is his lack of targets, as he's topped five targets just once over the last five games. It surely doesn't hurt that 64.2 percent of targets against the Lions go to wide receivers, which ranks as the second-highest mark in the league. Among the cornerbacks who've played at least 100 snaps in coverage, Jeff Okudah has allowed 2.35 yards per snap, which ranks as the second-highest mark in football. I mentioned in Rivers' notes that this is the definition of an average matchup, and the same goes for Hilton. There have been 11 wide receivers who've posted 11.4 or more PPR points against them, which put the odds in Hilton's favor to get into WR4 territory this week.Despite all the Steelers receivers being healthy last week, Ebron saw a season-high eight targets against the Titans. Sure, it helps that Roethlisberger threw 49 passes, but it's still a good sign for Ebron. The 42 routes he ran last week ranked second among tight ends, which is a great sign for production. The Ravens are a fairly dominant defense against almost all positions, but they're simply average against tight ends, allowing the 14th-most fantasy points to them. The 7.06 yards per target is close to the league average, while the touchdown every 15.7 targets is right there as well. They've allowed four tight ends hit double-digit PPR points against them, though it did require touchdowns for two of them. The concern here is Roethlisberger's struggles in Baltimore over the last five years, but Ebron's role is growing and he seems locked into five-plus targets. Consider him a mid-to-high-end TE2.
