Hilton believes he's in the best shape of his career after cutting fast food completely out of his diet in the offseason, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton beat the rest of the league to the punch with the "best shape of my life" quote, spilling it during the second week of the Colts' offseason workout program. He even joked that his big change was eating cinnamon toast crunch instead of fast food for dinner, but he is working closely with Colts director of sports performance Rusty Jones. Perhaps more important, the 28-year-old speedster sounds excited for his seventh professional season, likely invigorated by the possibility of playing with Andrew Luck (shoulder) under the guidance of new head coach Frank Reich, who served as offensive coordinator for the Eagles last season. Hilton shouldn't have any problem piling up targets even if the Colts use an early draft pick at his position, as the other wideouts on the current roster have accounted for only 145 career receptions and five touchdowns. The major concern is Luck's continued recovery from last year's shoulder surgery, though the Colts are optimistic their quarterback will be ready for the start of training camp. The passing game still figures to run through Hilton and Jack Doyle, with offseason additions Eric Ebron and Ryan Grant also in the mix to earn regular targets.

Hilton had three receptions for 14 yards on six targets in Sunday's win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton continued his boom-or-bust season as he had four games of 100 yards or more receiving, and eight games of 30 yards or less. He had a big decline in production without Andrew Luck as his 57 receptions and 966 yards receiving were the lowest since his rookie season in 2012. His four touchdowns were a career low. No player may get a bigger boost if Andrew Luck is able to return in 2018.

Hilton snagged six of 12 targets for 100 yards during Saturday's 23-16 loss to the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

The 12 targets were three more than Hilton's previous season high and snapped a season-long five straight games without a 100-yard performance. It's been a tough season for Hilton as he has not had the benefit of nabbing passes from Andrew Luck, but his 17.6 yards per catch represent a career high and ranks third in the league among qualified pass-catchers. He wraps up the season against a Houston team that he torched for 175 yards and two scores in Week 9.

Hilton brought in five of seven targets for 41 yards and fumbled once in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton checked in second behind Jack Doyle in both catches and yards on a night when Jacoby Brissett managed just 158 passing yards overall. The FIU product's fantasy upside continues to be capped by Brissett's penchant for short throws, as he's now averaged 11.5 yards per catch or less in four of his last five contests. On a more positive note, Hilton's reception total was his best since he'd also tallied five catches in Week 9 against the Texans. He'll look to boost his overall production against the Ravens in Week 16.

Hilton caught two of four targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton tied for the team lead in targets, but each of his receptions went for just 10 yards as Jacoby Brissett relied on short attempts in the snowy conditions. The wideout shook loose for 51 yards and a touchdown last week against the Jaguars, but he's failed to reach 30 receiving yards in six of the last eight games overall. Hilton remains capable of breaking off a long gain at any point, but a lack of consistent quarterback play as severely hampered his fantasy value. This should remain the case Thursday against the capable Broncos secondary.

Hilton caught three of six targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-10 loss to Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton got loose for a 40-yard score on 4th-and-2 in the third quarter to reduce his team's deficit to two touchdowns. His ability to pull off big plays in even the most difficult matchups makes Hilton difficult to bench, but he's been frustrating to own with fewer than 60 receiving yards in all but three games this season.

Hilton contributed just two catches for 15 yards on five targets in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton tied running back Frank Gore for second on the team in targets behind tight end Jack Doyle's eight, but the speedy wideout finished a distant sixth in receiving yards. Tennessee did an incredible job containining the dangerous Hilton in their two meetings this season, holding him to a combined 34 yards on three catches. While he's showcased a high ceiling with a trio of performances over 150 yards, Hilton's been mostly disappointing the rest of the time with under 30 yards in six of his other eight appearances, including five of the past six.

Hilton (groin) brought in two of four targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

After a 175-yard explosion against the Texans in Week 9, Hilton was unable to deliver anything close to a successful encore. The 27-year-old speedster saw Donte Moncrief and Chester Rogers take their turns logging long touchdowns in Week 10, while he posted his second-lowest yardage total of the season. Hilton's production has fluctuated throughout the season with Jacoby Brissett behind center, but three outings of over 150 receiving yards corroborate his massive fantasy upside. He'll look to return to those types of numbers versus the Titans following the Colts' Week 11 bye.

Hilton (groin) is active for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hilton was limited during the practice week because of the injury, but it looks like he'll be good to go for Sunday's game. The speedy wideout has been an integral part of the Colts' three victories on the season with 168.3 receiving yards in those contests, but he's sputtered to just a 32.8 yards per game mark in the team's six losses.

Hilton (groin) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Steelers, but the Colts are optimistic that he'll be able to play, a source informed Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported previously that Hilton was expected to play Sunday, but it appears the Colts want to make sure the wideout completes warmups without aggravating his groin injury before declaring him good to go. The injury resulted in Hilton's practice time being limited throughout the week after he enjoyed his best outing of the season in the Week 9 win over the Texans, snagging five of nine targets for 175 yards and two touchdowns. Look for the Colts to formally clarify Hilton's status when the team releases its inactives 90 minutes in advance of the 1 p.m. EDT kickoff.
