|T.Y. Hilton saw his target total grow by more than 50 percent in 2013 and there is room for improvement considering Darrius Heyward-Bey opened the season as the starter for almost two months. Part of Hilton's success can be attributed to the fact that he is able to play in the slot and work underneath while also using his speed to fly past defenders from the outside. A minor foot injury during OTAs does not appear to have slowed him down heading into training camp. As a Swiss army knife for Andrew Luck, Hilton figures to be the most productive fantasy wideout on the Colts in 2014. He will ultimately lose some targets to a healthy Reggie Wayne and Hakeem Nicks, but will also benefit from their presence as defenses are forced to cover the entire field. That being said he shouldn't be projected as a surefire WR1 for fantasy purposes. Instead, he becomes a great WR3 in shallow leagues while being a steady WR2 in deeper formats.

"Need to build some steam"

|Colts are going to, generally speaking, play to win against Tennessee despite having nothing to gain. They need to build some steam. (Stephen Holder on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: After laying an egg against the Cowboys in Week 16, the Colts would probably be well-served by trying to find their groove offensively against the overmatched Titans. T.Y. Hilton is expected to return and Andrew Luck is a good bet to excel, so both players should be top-five plays in daily fantasy or Week 17 championships, even if they only play three quarters.
| T.Y. Hilton misses practice Friday, Questionable|

|The Indianapolis Colts took to the practice field on Friday minus their top receiver.
T.Y. Hilton missed his third straight practice with the hamstring injury he sustained in Sunday's win over the Houston Texans, per ESPN.com's Mike Wells. He was later listed as questionable for Sunday's critical matchup with the Cowboys.
FFToday's Take: Hilton described himself as "50-50". With the Colts unlikely to improve their playoff seed in the final two weeks, its likely that Hilton will be on the Inactive list Sunday resulting in increased reps for Donte Moncrief and Hakeem Nicks at the wideout spots.

|Also no sign of colts T.Y. Hilton (hamstring). (Mike Chappell on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Hilton tweaked his hamstring in last week's game. His MRI on Monday showed nothing significant. Thursday will be a key day for the Colts leading receiver.
