Fantasy Profile: T.Y. Hilton, WR, Indianapolis Colts
T.Y. Hilton is one of my least favorite wide receiver values in fantasy football. He is a talented deep threat with Andrew Luck at quarterback, but his skill set leaves a lot to be desired in head-to-head format leagues. For total point formats, Hilton has some good value, but his week-to-week output is so sporadic that he may be a liability on rosters come playoff weeks. In what was essentially 14 games last season, Hilton averaged a respectable 12.6 points per game, yet only scored more than 13.1 points in four games (28.3, 27.0, 21.5, 18.2). In eight of his contests, he tallied fewer than 11 points (10.7, 10.5, 9.0, 8.0, 6.5, 5.0, 4.1 & 2.4). Note that these numbers do not include his DNP Week 16 during most fantasy leagues’ championship games, nor a Week 17 zero-point outing when he did suit up.
Considering his inconsistency, the additions of five-time Pro Bowl running back Frank Gore and future Hall of Fame wide receiver Andre Johnson, and the ascension of young wideouts Donte Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett, I suggest that buyers should beware of adding Hilton.
