T.Y. Hilton builds on fantasy value with huge score against Bills

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

T.Y. Hilton is already creating a buzz after one quarter of preseason play. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Colts added Darrius Heyward-Bey to their receiving corps this offseason, but T.Y. Hilton isn't letting a new acquisition steal his spotlight yet. Hilton opened up Indianapolis' first preseason game against the Bills with a diving 45-yard touchdown catch at the end of the first quarter, drawing praise from multiple writers on Twitter.

While the touchdown pass came from Matt Hasselbeck, Andrew Luck completed two passes to Hilton before finishing for the day.

Fantasy impact: Hilton came on strong in the second half of his rookie season. The Colts are running a different offense with Bruce Arians gone, but Hilton figures to remain a top target for Luck.

Heyward-Bey has been dealing with a knee injury. He's never played all 16 games in one season, so Hilton could benefit if another ailment comes up. Owners should look at Hilton as a WR3 right now with upside, assuming he and Luck continue to develop a strong rapport.
