Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
The Colts' home stand against the Vikings is likely to be a high-scoring battle, and T.Y. Hilton should benefit from a pass-heavy game script. He tied with Parris Campbell in terms of targets (9) and air yards (103), so this looks like a WR1A/WR1B situation. Hilton is a high-upside WR3 this week, and he should see plenty of volume with Jack Doyle, Zach Pascal, and Michael Pittman all out or questionable.John Brown led the Bills in targets last week, but Stefon Diggs ended up with more yards than him. This looks like a WR1A/WR1B situation, so cornerback matchups may help us figure out which is the better play. The Dolphins have two strong perimeter corners in Byron Jones and Xavien Howard, but the unit is yet to take on a pass-heavy offense, so we don't have a good sense of what they can do yet. I'm cautiously optimistic that both Diggs and Brown will return WR2 finishes for Week 2, and their speed combined with Josh Allen's arm strength gives them more upside than most.
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
The Vikings' pass defense was lifeless in Week 1 against the Packers and I expect Philip Rivers and the Colts' receivers to take advantage. T.Y. Hilton only had 4 catches on 9 targets last week, but I love that target share and he should improve his efficiency as Rivers gets more comfortable on his new team. This matchup provides a great opportunity for the Colts' offense to start firing on all cylinders and I see Hilton as a strong WR2 this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It would appear Hilton has some competition for targets in the offense for the first time in a while, as Parris Campbell equaled Hilton's target total in Week 1 and outproduced him. We know Hilton's not a big touchdown producer (never had more than seven), and you'd have to go back to 2018 to find the last time he topped 87 yards in a game. It's still good to see him get nine targets in Rivers' first game as the quarterback. The Vikings cornerbacks struggled mightily to keep the Packers receivers in check last week, as the trio of Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling combined for 22 catches, 315 yards, and four touchdowns on just 27 targets. Hilton played on each side of the formation (almost a 50/50 split) last week, so he'll see a mixture of Mike Hughes and rookie Cameron Dantzler in coverage. If Hilton is going to be fantasy relevant this year, he needs to get it done in matchups like this. Start him as a high-end WR3 and expect results.Having a connection with Josh Allen surely helped in Week 1 as he led the team in targets with 10 of them. There were just five games in 2019 where he saw more than eight targets, so I don't believe it's something to get used to. Brown's typically at LWR, which means he'll see newly-acquired Byron Jones in coverage this week, a cornerback who has seemingly gotten better every year he's played. Over the last two years (and one game), he's allowed just 7.16 yards per target and six touchdowns on 137 targets in his coverage. One of the reasons they acquired him was likely due to what Brown did to this team last year, demolishing them for 5/83/1 in the first matchup and then again for 9/137/2 in the second one. So, make no mistake about it, this is a different matchup than it was last year. Not only that, but Brown now has to compete with Diggs in what should still be a run-first offense. Brown is not a must-start by any means and should be considered a middling WR4 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Hilton is a WR2 going against a Vikings D that was torched by the Packers in the opener.
