What to do with TY Hilton, Zach Pascal in Week 5 fantasy football

The Colts have rattled off three straight wins are looking to continue that vs. Cleveland. How will T.Y. Hilton and Zach Pascal perform against the Browns’ secondary?

The Indianapolis Colts have been rolling since dropping their season opener, rattling off three straight wins and planting their flag atop the AFC South as the Tennessee Titans continue to be sidelined with their on-going Covid-19 outbreak.

The Colts have paired a dominant defense with production from several offensive weapons and they’ll hope two of their top receiving options will step up when they hit the road to meet the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Fantasy Football analysis: Colts WRs T.Y. Hilton, Zach Pascal

Hilton and Pascal were both held to modest numbers in last week’s 19-11 victory over the Bears, combining for just six receptions on 13 targets for 87 yards and no scores.

The duo’s numbers have been impacted by the Colts spreading the ball around through the passing game with tight end Mo Alie-Cox and running backs Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Taylor all registering at least 10 receptions this season. While that’s good for Indy’s outlook for success, it doesn’t bode well for the fantasy outlooks of Hilton and Pascal.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

The Browns have given up 12 passing touchdowns so far this season, the second-most in the league. However, I’d still sit both of these receivers for this week.
