Week 15 Fantasy Football Dark Horse Sleeper: WR T.Y. Hilton
When Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne went down with a torn ACL, the fantasy football community thought WR T.Y Hilton would step up in his absence. The speedster certainly did for a while, as he had back-to-back 120-yard performances in Week 9 and 10, but he has severely disappointed since that point.
Hilton hasn’t caught a single touchdown over the last five games and has averaged a meager 33.8 yards per contest. QB Andrew Luck threw a season-high four touchdowns last Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals, but even in a huge offensive game, Hilton still finished the afternoon with just two receptions for seven yards.
Hilton’s counterparts, Da’Rick Rogers and LaVon Brazil, hauled in all four of Luck’s touchdowns, while the speedster was left with a zero in the point column. Many owners are quickly losing faith in the Hilton, and as a result, he may find himself on the bench in many leagues in Week 15.
Indianapolis gets to face the Houston Texans this Sunday, and fortunately for Hilton, Houston has been unable to cover the speedster throughout his career. Hilton hauled in a ridiculous 121 receiving yards and three touchdowns on seven receptions against the team in Week 9.
Even more promising, Hilton has now racked up 310 receiving yards and five touchdowns agasint Houston in his three career starts against the division rival. He has posted huge numbers against Houston’s depleted defense and this week should be no different.
Now Hilton will still be a somewhat risky play in the second round of the playoffs, but his potential to have another big game is too much to ignore. If you have Hilton on your roster, make sure to have him in your starting lineup in Week 15.
