T.Y. Hilton: Early waiver wire option in Week 14

T.Y. Hilton stood out in Sunday’s contest as a potential early waiver wire option in Week 14.

T.Y. Hilton is back! The Indianapolis Colts receiver has been ghost all year but resurfaced in Week 12 by catching four passes for a season-high 81 yards and a score. He followed that up with an even more impressive performance against the Houston Texans in Week 13. If Hilton keeps it up he could be a big-time waiver wire pickup down the stretch in the regular season.

Hilton seems to always dominate the Texans and caught eight passes against his team’s divisional rival for 110 yards and a score. He’s eclipsed 50 snaps for the first time since Week 6 in Week 12 and his exposure is on the rise. His season-high 11 targets against Houston could mean that Philip Rivers is starting to trust him more, so I expect Hilton go get a healthy stat boost moving forward. Hilton is only 46.9 percent rostered in ESPN leagues and should be one of the first players you look at on the waiver wire if you need help out wide.

Up next — Raiders, Texans, Steelers, Jaguars
