Darrius Heyward-Bey injury update: T.Y. Hilton going to have fantasy value

Thomas J. Russo-US PRESSWIRE

Darrius Heyward-Bey and T.Y. Hilton are both listed as probable to face the 49ers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Darrius Heyward-Bey and T.Y. Hilton are both listed as probable to face the 49ers on Sunday. DHB was a full participant while Hilton was limted all week.

Hilton had a breakout game on Sunday with a career-high 124 yards against the Dolphins and the team has said they're going to design some plays with Hilton in mind. Heyward-Bey has just five catches for 43 yards in his two games.

Fantasy impact: There is a lot to like about Hilton and those that drafted him have to be feeling pretty good. He's not just running deep routes anymore and he's been running a full complement of patterns. DHB's role is going down with this news, but Reggie Wayne should still be viewed as a must-start option. Andrew Luck and the Colts could have a productive offense now that they have Trent Richardson, but Hilton is a risky play against a stout 49ers D.
