T.Y. Hilton does little for fantasy owners in Week 16

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

T.Y. Hilton managed 52 receiving yards against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

T.Y. Hilton continued his streak of mediocrity on Sunday as the Indianapolis Colts managed to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs 23-7. Hilton caught five passes for 52 yards. It was his 7th straight week without a touchdown. He was second in targets to Griff Whalen, who finished with seven catches for 80 yards. Hilton has fallen off since his 130 yard performance in Week 9. He may be one of Luck's favorite targets in the absence of Reggie Wayne, but Hilton hasn't been able to break off for enough big plays against a stretch of tough pass defenses.

Fantasy impact: Hilton has done enough to prove he's worth WR3 consideration moving forward. He's even more appealing in PPR formats. However, he appears better suited as a complimentary receiver. Kansas City wasn't expected to be a cakewalk for Hilton, and owners likely started him with caution. Regardless, Hilton's past six weeks have been a bit of a letdown. Sunday was no exception. He'll face a vulnerable Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17, but he's nothing more than a WR3 in most formats.
