T.Y. Hilton still sidelined at practice on Week 11 Wednesday

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is not yet back at practice, but there is hope he can get back later in the week. We break down the fantasy football implications for him and Zach Pascal in Week 11.

The Indianapolis Colts are expecting quarterback Jacoby Brissett to be back in the starting lineup this Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but wide receiver T.Y. Hilton remains a question mark. Hilton sat out the team’s first practice of Week 11, but there is some hope he can get back to practice on Thursday or Friday, according to beat writer Zak Keefer.

Hilton injured his calf in Week 8 against the Denver Broncos and has sat out the past two weeks. Zach Pascal has started in his place, with Chester Rogers getting work in place of an injured Parris Campbell.

Fantasy football analysis: Colts WR T.Y. Hilton

Hilton had been off to a strong start this season before the injury, and would slot right back in as a WR1 if he gets healthy. He had not surpassed 100 receiving yards in a game this season, but he had a touchdown in four of his six starts and at least four receptions in each game before his injury in Week 8.

Pascal is the team’s lead receiver, and while a returning Devin Funchess could cost him targets down the road, with no Funchess and potentially no Hilton in Week 11, he’s a solid addition against the Jaguars. He’s available in over 60 percent of ESPN leagues, and is a a decent flex option in Week 11. If Hilton plays, he retains some flex value in deeper leagues.
