Well, well, well, look who is back to being a No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy football. For the first time since Andrew Luck was quarterback, Indianapolis Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton is a must-start player in fantasy football. So what’s the fantasy outlook this week against the Texans for Hilton and his teammate Michael Pittman?
Fantasy Football analysis: Colts WRs T.Y. Hilton, Michael Pittman Jr.
Hilton scored twice last week, and he now has four touchdowns in his last three games. Two weeks ago against the Texans, he caught eight passes on 11 targets for 110 yards and a touchdown. That was his first and only, so far, game this season with 100+ yards. He’s a WR1 this week, if you’re lucky enough to have held on to him this season.
Pittman only caught two passes on five targets last week, with 42 yards to show for it. He was targeted five times against Houston in Week 13, catching all five for 46 yards. The fact that his target share is pretty consistent from week to week makes him somewhat useful as a WR3 or Flex, though he hasn’t scored since Week 11.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start T.Y. Hilton and Michael Pittman.
