After no touchdowns through the first 10 games, T.Y. Hilton has four over the last three
The Week 15 fantasy football wide receiver rankings feature a player I cannot get right — T.Y. Hilton. For example, I liked him coming off his big 2016 season only to see his stats drop nearly 50 percent across the board. I then avoided him the following season and he rebounded for 1,270 yards and six TDs. So of course, I liked him coming into this season and by Week 4 I dropped him when he was sporting zero touchdowns, 13 total catches, and had yet to reach 60 yards in a game. I swore him off, but Hilton now has me reconsidering that decision.
Hilton now has three weeks in a row of more than 80 receiving yards with four touchdowns in the last three weeks. Furthermore, the Colts will be hosting the Texans this weekend. The Texans are giving up the ninth-most fantasy points to WRs so I would expect Hilton to see similar numbers in Week 15.
So yes, I've got Hilton ranked fairly high, so you might want to exercise caution given that my expectations and his performance never align. I still have some doubts about Philip Rivers, but he and Hilton seem to be building a connection.
I am wary of pushing you one way or another. But it might be best to start considering Hilton a viable weapon. Maybe I'll be right on him this time.
