T. Y. Hilton WR IND 3 Months

T.Y. Hilton caught four passes for 103 yards in Indianapolis' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

Hilton finishes 2013-14 on a tear, posting a monster 28/482/2 line over his past three games. Few players needed the offseason to get here more, however, as Hilton has been plagued by a shoulder injury, tweaking it multiple times per game. Hilton also banged up his knee against New England, but never checked out. An explosive jitterbug who can gain separation deep and get free over the middle, Hilton took a big step forward as a sophomore, catching 82 passes for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns. With Andrew Luck throwing him the ball, Hilton has WR1 upside. The only concern is his slight 5-foot-10, 183-pound frame. Hilton has missed only one game as a pro, but picked up a ton of nicks and bruises. He was injury prone in college. Regardless, he's an elite option in Dynasty leagues.

Colts OC Pep Hamilton is using T.Y. Hilton at four different receiver positions in an effort to keep him away from concentrated coverage.

He's playing X, Z, left slot, and right slot. "We feel like that's important so that teams just can't kind of game plan and scheme to take him away," explained Hamilton. "So we've challenged T.Y. early and often to understand the concepts and understand all four spots. He's done extremely well." Containing Hilton is sure to be the focus of Bill Belichick's Divisional Round game plan.

T.Y. Hilton caught 13 passes for 224 yards and two touchdowns in Indianapolis' Wild Card win over the Chiefs.

Hilton was uncoverable, particularly after the Chiefs lost No. 1 CB Brandon Flowers to a concussion. Hilton drew a whopping 18 targets. The highlight came late in the fourth quarter, where Hilton got behind the entire Chiefs defense to score what would prove to be a game-winning, 64-yard touchdown. Both the catches and yards were new career highs, though Hilton is now up to 24 grabs for 379 yards over his past two games. He'll be the focal point for either Denver or New England's defense in next week's Divisional Round game.

T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) is active for Week 16 against the Chiefs.

T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 16 at Kansas City.

Hilton admitted to reporters Friday that he's been playing through "quite a bit" of shoulder pain since falling hard on the arm in Indianapolis' late-November game against Arizona. Hilton is tentatively expected to start against the Chiefs, but clearly isn't 100 percent. This may help explain his recent drop in production, although Hilton does have five-plus receptions in six of his last seven games. He's more of a WR3 in fantasy trophy week.

T.Y. Hilton (shoulder) returned to practice Friday.

Hilton was added to the Week 16 injury report Thursday as a DNP with a shoulder issue he's been battling for a few weeks. The second-year receiver is in no danger of missing Sunday's tilt with the Chiefs. Hilton is a WR3.

T.Y. Hilton was added to the Colts' injury report Thursday, missing practice with a shoulder issue.

It's the same injury Hilton has been dealing with for three weeks, so the DNP isn't a major concern. That being said, it's always eye-brow raising when a player is a mid-week addition to the injury report. Owners can keep Hilton penciled in as their WR3, but his status will definitely be worth double-checking on Friday and Sunday.
