T.Y. Hilton Cements Status as Long-Term, Must-Start in Fantasy for 2013
T.Y. Hilton has arrived.
It's not as if Hilton was a bad option from a fantasy standpoint last year as a rookie with Indianapolis after developing into one of quarterback Andrew Luck's favorite targets. After all, Hilton grabbed 50 receptions for over 800 yards and seven touchdowns.
Through two games in his sophomore year, Hilton is on pace to shatter those numbers.
Hilton was quiet in Week 1, but erupted against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2. Owners that stuck with Hilton despite his miserable sophomore debut were rewarded with six receptions for 124 yards, all of which came by halftime.
Even more encouraging were Hilton's 12 targets, which were three more than any other receiving option on the team.
Hilton is now a high-end No. 2 fantasy receiver with potential for more some weeks depending on the matchup. He's clearly beginning to take away targets from Reggie Wayne and the tight ends on the roster.
As a rookie Hilton tallied five contests with more than 100 yards receiving, and has one to his name already this year. Consistency is the name of the game in fake football and Hilton is well on his way to providing a constant positive output.
The new breed of slot receivers taking over the league continues. While he's no Victor Cruz or Wes Welker, Hilton is not a bad substitute—especially with a quarterback like Luck.
