T.Y. Hilton, WR, Colts
|WR - #23||IND||Probable||2 years||24||5'9||183|
2013 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Sep-10-2013 by Vin Sadicario
Update (9-10) Hilton played only about 50 percent of the Colts' offensive snaps in week one. He is clearly behind Darrius Heyward-Bey at the moment. Fantasy owners will not be able to count on Hilton to live up to his draft potential until he passes Heyward-Bey on the depth chart.
Update (8-25): Though still not technically a starter, Hilton sure is producing like one. The second-year target hauled in two passes for 17 yards and a touchdown against the Browns in Indy's third preseason game. That's three scores for Hilton, who is coming off the bench behind Reggie Wayne and Darrius Heyward-Bey. The scoring potential is no fluke, which is why he's a high-end fantasy WR3. More snaps would be nice and the Colts are often using two-TE sets, a trend that could make Hilton's week-to-week production dicey. Overall, we're talking about a potential breakout performer who could sniff double-digit touchdowns with enough targets.
Update 8/13/13: Our very own Ian Ritchie, the #4 ranked player in the world just released his breakout candidate and he named TY Hilton his Breakout Player of the year. Here's what he had to say about Hilton:
If you believe in a guy named Luck with a horseshoe on his helmet, you must buy in to T. Y. Hilton. He is being drafted in high stakes contests at 7.1 and I believe his value will be more like a second WR. The game is starting to slow down for this speedster and his production this season will justify a much earlier pick than where he is being drafted. Take him with confidence and take his numbers to the bank.
Preview - T.Y. Hilton was a surprise performer for the Colts as a rookie in 2012. Hilton found the end zone seven times, and had 5 one hundred yard receiving games. Despite the addition of Darrius Heyward-Bey, Hilton should win a starting spot across from Reggie Wayne, and has the ability to improve upon last year's numbers. Fantasy owners should view Hilton as a low-end WR 3 heading into fantasy drafts.

|6.06||FFToolbox - Cindie Crain - With an aging Reggie Wayne on the opposite side of the field, I believe T.Y. Hilton will have a solid season. It was between Hilton and Tavon Austin here and I elected to go with the player who already has one season under his belt.|

|8.02||World Fantasy Rankings #4 - If you like Andrew Luck this season, which I do, you have to like T.Y. Hilton and his upside potential. Luck likes to throw the ball downfield and Hilton is the young speedster that will compliment the older and wiser Reggie Wayne. Hilton gives this team great WR depth and is a steal in the 8th round.|
