T. Y. Hilton caught six balls for 100 receiving yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the New England Patriots. It is the rookie’s third 100 yard game of the 2012 NFL season.
Analysis: T. Y. Hilton now has two 100 plus yard receiving games in his last three games as he emerges as one of Andrew Luck’s favorite targets in Indy. Hilton was targeted nine times Sunday and has twenty-one targets in his previous three games. He may not be a reliable must start type of receiver but his numbers cannot go unnoticed.
The Colts attempt forty passes per game so we know Hilton will get his fair share of targets. He’s available in over ninety percent of leagues but his stock is on the rise. With Donnie Avery’s concussion in week eleven it opens the door for Hilton to put up some solid numbers. Keep in mind that Indy does play Houston twice and Detroit so we can expect plenty of passing attempts the rest of the season.
Other widely available players that seem to be emerging include Davone Bess(more consistent) and Marcel Reece(PPR stud).
