How to handle T.Y. Hilton’s injury in Week 11 fantasy football

The Colts will be shorthanded at receiver again this week. Here’s who and what you need to know.

UPDATE: T.Y. Hilton is officially inactive.

The Indianapolis Colts will have to go another week without T.Y. Hilton. Their top wide receiver is still recovering from a calf injury. He was not able to practice at all this week, so it remains to be seen when exactly he might return to action for a team in the thick of a playoff chase.

Hilton has not seen the playing field since Week 8.

The Colts will be without Parris Campbell too. The team’s other wide receiver is dealing with a broken hand, and the most optimistic estimate is that he could return some time in December. We’ll see.

It isn’t all bad news for the Colts. Starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett returns to action this week, which is a tremendous boost for the pass catchers on this team.

Zach Pascal will see a ton of action as the team’s top receiver with the depth chart as banged up as it is. He’s capable of producing some decent numbers too, now that Brissett is back. He makes for a decent second or third receiver on your fantasy team, especially at $5,800 in DK leagues this week.

But this is a team that throws to its tight ends a lot too, and really doesn’t throw the ball all that much.
