Fantasy football start/sit, Week 13: T.Y Hilton is strong option

The Colts haven't been a lot of fun to own as a unit in fantasy, but there is a chance T.Y. Hilton has a big day after being quiet over his past two.

The loss of Reggie Wayne for the Indianapolis Colts has been tough on their offense. It's propelled T.Y. Hilton into a featured role. He wasn't really ready for it and has been inconsistent, but his overall numbers have been there.

On the season, Hilton has 745 receiving yards and five scores on 51 catches and 92 targets. The Colts haven't seen any other production from their other guys, which has been a double-edged sword. Hilton has been a very popular target for Andrew Luck, but the low catch percentage is something to worry about.

Fantasy impact: It's been two very quiet games in a row for Hilton. He didn't catch more than five catches for more than 44 yards in either of his last two games while failing to score in either. One of those games was against the Titans. They put bracket coverage on him a lot two weeks ago and might do it again in Week 13. Still, Hilton has just too much upside to bench. He's a low-end WR1 in PPR leagues and a strong WR in standards.
