Hilton is back this week, but he is only a low-upside WR2 against a tough Buffalo Bills secondary. The Vikings are 10th against fantasy running backs this year, Crowell is a decent flex option in a tough matchup this week.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Hilton has now been removed from the injury report and will resume duties as Andrew Luck's clear-cut top receiver. That may mean that Tre'Davious White will be on him, but you can bank on 8+ targets regardless, making Hilton an easy start for Week 7.Crowell has been missing practice this week with a foot injury plus the Jets take on the Vikings' excellent front seven. Both of those and the fact that Crowell has just two games of over 40 yards this season all point to him being a sit this weekend.
Tim McCullough

Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - SIT - After missing Weeks 5 and 6, TY Hilton returned to a full practice on Wednesday. He is finally trending in the right direction to return for Week 7. With a 4 week Optimal Recovery Time according to our algorithm, he's still a week away from full health. A mid-week downgrade to limited also has us somewhat concerned. Hamstring injuries are easily aggravated, and we've already seen a handful of players this season end up back on the bench after aggravating these types of injuries. Hilton will be a high risk/high reward option if he returns this weekend. Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - SIT - Crowell played with an ankle injury last weekend, despite not getting in much practice. This week, he's listed with a foot injury. Back-to-back lower body injuries are a big red flag, even though Crowell is practicing this week. He will almost certainly be hindered by his injuries if he plays Week 7.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Hilton is expected to return from a two-game absence this week. With Andrew Luck playing at a very high level, Indy's number one receiver is a surefire WR2, even though he may face shadow coverage from the Bills' Tre'Davious White. If Crowell is destined to continually alternate good and bad fantasy weeks, than he's due for another big one. But that's just about the only reason to expect it as Crowell battles a foot injury and faces off with a Vikings defense that has yet to allow a 100-yard rusher and has given up just one rushing touchdown to RBs.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 Is it possible that I've found the Amari Cooper of running backs? While Crowell isn't as talented as Cooper, he's the running back version of him. He's had games of 219 and 102 rushing yards, but has totaled 40 yards or less in the other four games. He's a boom-or-bust option, but he's still on the RB2/3 radar most weeks because you cannot name 24 running backs who are consistently putting up numbers. Powell is clearly going to be involved every week, as he's actually edged out Crowell 85-78 in the touch department, though he's not breaking big plays the way Crowell is, which makes him a bit less valuable, though maybe a bit less volatile as well. If there's one area of the Vikings offense that hasn't lost a step, it's their run defense that's held every running back not named Todd Gurley to 16 or less PPR points. He's the only one who's been able to reach 60 yards on the ground as well, so it's not a week to expect big things out of Crowell.
