T.Y. Hilton continues recent awful fantasy performance

The Colts receiver has been fantasy worthless for weeks, and it continued Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton had 43 combined fantasy points in Weeks 9 and 10. In the four games since, he has 11 total points. That bottomed out with an awful game Sunday in the Colts' 42-28 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hilton caught only two passes for seven yards in the game, with the Colts looking to relative newcomers LaVon Brazill and Da'Rick Rogers for receiving yards.

Fantasy impact: Hilton has only 135 receiving yards since Week 10, after having 251 combined in his two-game hot stretch. With his recent struggles, Hilton has gone from borderline WR1 status to someone who can't even really be played at flex right now. Maybe he gets himself back on the good side in the season's last three weeks, but it's really bad right now.

The only thing really working in Hilton's favor is that the team can't really trust its other receivers -- Brazill and Rogers are too untested, and Darrius Heyward-Bey can't really catch the ball.
