Colts T.Y. Hilton explodes for 124 yards and a touchdown

Gregory Shamus

T.Y. Hilton led all Colts receivers against Miami with 124 yards and a touchdown. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

T.Y. Hilton bounced back from a weak performance against the Raiders in Week 1 with six receptions for 121 yards and a touchdown. He was targeted a team-high 12 times. Colts receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey left the game with a shoulder injury in the third quarter, but most of Hilton's production came in the first half of the game.

Fantasy impact: Hilton was clearly a big part of the Colts game plan on Sunday. He was able to redeem himself after a quiet Week 1 of only 30 receiving yards. Hilton was considered a WR3 in most fantasy formats heading into the 2013 season, and performances like this help support this projection. If Darrius Heyward-Bey misses any time with his shoulder injury, Hilton will likely continue seeing a healthy share of targets. Look for Andrew Luck to fall back on Hilton against the 49ers in Week 3.
