FF Today's Take: The Colts and Broncos play a late-afternoon game so check the Inactives to confirm but it sounds like Luck will be without one of his best weapons against the stout Broncos defense. Hilton did not practice this week. Expect Donte Moncrief and Andre Johnson to be the starting WRs. Temper your fantasy expectations for all Colts players.
| Hilton to be a game time decision -- Fri Nov 6 9:35 pm --|
Colts WR missed practice all week and was seen in a walking boot
|Andrew Luck could be without his top receiving threat when he faces the NFL's No. 1 defense on Sunday. NFL Media's Rand Getlin reported on NFL HQ Friday morning that wideout T.Y. Hilton will be a game-time decision Sunday ahead of the Colts' clash with the Denver Broncos, per a source informed of the situation. Hilton was officially listed as questionable on Friday. It hasn't looked good for Hilton's availability after the wideout missed three straight days of practice and was seen in a boot on Thursday as he deals with a foot sprain. There was no sign of Hilton at the start of Friday's practice, which isn't a good sign for the wideout's progress. The Colts' top pass-catcher has 38 receptions on 81 targets this season, compiling 621 yards and three touchdowns. He is catching just 46.9 percent of his targets this season after snagging 61.0 percent in 2014. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Hilton owners should ensure they have a backup plan this week. Even if he does play, he has a tough matchup in the Broncos' stifling defense.

FF Today's Take: There's legitimate concern that Hilton won't be able to play in Week 9. He was seen with a boot on his foot in the locker room after Monday night's loss to Carolina. Even if he does play, he won't be a recommended fantasy play against the Broncos defense.

FF Today's Take: Luck sat out last week's game with a shoulder injury and it appears the Colts are leaning towards resting him this week as well. T.Y. Hilton posted a 7-67 line while Donte Moncrief went 6-75 with Hasselbeck at the controls last week.

Colts WR outshining veteran receivers with athletic catches
|On a night when his more esteemed teammates could not gain any traction, Donte Moncrief picked up the slack for T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson. Moncrief caught seven passes (on eight targets) for 122 yards and a TD, a performance that ranks second in his career to a 133-yard performance against the Washington Redskins last season. (Indianapolis Star)|
FF Today's Take: Moncrief has shown growth as a receiver this season, becoming more than just the one-dimensional deep threat he was, at times, last season. Fantasy owners (as well as the Colts) can only hope that growth continues as the teams looks for consistent offensive production.

|T.Y. Hilton didnít take part in practice with his teammates as they continued getting ready for Monday nightís home date with the Jets. The Monday night kickoff gives Hilton a little extra time to heal up, although continued absences from practice in the next couple of days wonít bode well for his chances of helping the Colts even their record. (ProFootballTalk)|
FF Today's Take: Hilton is dealing with a bone bruise suffered in Week 1. The Monday night start time complicates matters for fantasy owners but if Hilton he can't play, Donte Moncrief would get the start and be a viable Flex play.
| T.Y. Hilton likely out 1-2 weeks -- Mon Sep 14 4:10 pm --|
|The Indianapolis Colts could be without their No. 1 receiving threat for a couple weeks.
T.Y. Hilton is day-to-day with a knee bruise, but NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports the team will be cautious with their top target. Hilton could miss one to two games, depending on how the wideout feels, per a source informed of his condition. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Donte Moncrief is the next man up for the Colts, who are plenty deep at receiver and can absorb the short-term loss of a player like Hilton better than just about any other team. A two-week absence means Hilton would return in Week 4 at home against Jacksonville. In the interim, Andre Johnson should serve as the team's top target, although he figures to have a daunting matchup in Week 2 against the Jets' Darrelle Revis. Phillip Dorsett is also worthy of being added in all leagues as well.
