T.Y. Hilton scores three touchdowns against Texans in dominant fantasy football performance

Thomas B. Shea

Hilton and Luck waited until the second half to get going, but that was plenty of time to pile up great numbers.

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton dominated in the second half against the Houston Texans on Sunday Night Football to finish as one of the fantasy football scorers at his position for Week 9.

Hilton, who was held in check in the first half, exploded to catch three touchdowns in the second half. He finished with seven catches on 12 targets for 121 yards and all three of Andrew Luck's touchdowns.

Fantasy spin: With Reggie Wayne out for the season with a torn ACL, Hilton assumed the role as Luck's go-to-guy on offense. He struggled to adjust to the role in the first half, especially since Luck was playing poorly at the time. But the Colts' passing game got things clicking late in the game to come away with a win.

If Hilton continues to get as many targets as he did, and the Colts lean on the passing game some more, Hilton could be a reliable fantasy football wide receiver down the stretch.
