  • T.Y. Hilton has been an elite fantasy football producer throughout his career.
  • What should you expect from the Indianapolis Colts' top wide receiver in 2019?
  • Ian Hartitz analyzes Hilton's outlook and when he should be going in drafts.

We’re in the thick of the NFL offseason and it’s officially time to start fantasy football prep. I’ll be answering the biggest questions heading into the 2019 season; this is part of that series.


Third-round players from non-Power Five conferences don’t often excel at the NFL level, but T.Y. Hilton isn’t your everyday wide receiver.

The Indianapolis Colts’ longtime No. 1 pass-game target has averaged 1,156 receiving yards since entering the league in 2012, defeating pretty much any and every AFC South cornerback along the way.

What follows is a breakdown of just how consistent Hilton has been over the years and what his fantasy football value looks like in 2019.

T.Y. Hilton Is as Good as Any NFL WR … with Andrew Luck

Hilton’s production has been strongly tied to the presence of his franchise quarterback under center.

Hilton still managed to convert 109 targets into 57 receptions for 966 yards and four touchdowns with Jacoby Brissett running the offense in 2017, but that’s peanuts compared to what we’ve seen him do with Luck.
