Player Outlook
At the time of publication, Hilton remains a free agent, and we'll see if he signs with a team prior to training camp. Even if that happens he's not worth drafting in the majority of leagues. Hilton, 33, signed with Dallas late last season. He played in three regular-season and two postseason games for the Cowboys, catching 10 of 15 targets for 159 yards. His best days are behind him, and there's a chance he could have played his final down in the NFL in 2022. At best, you can add Hilton off the waiver wire during the season if he catches on with a new team and surprises us with a prominent role.

  • Cowboys' T.Y. Hilton: Provides depth late for Dallas

    Hilton played in three regular-season and two postseason games for Dallas in 2022, catching 10 of 15 targets for 159 yards. The long-time Colt wound up being Plan B for the Cowboys after they determined Odell Beckham (knee) wasn't going to be able to help them for the stretch run, and Hilton made an immediate impact in his Week 16 debut when he hauled in a 52-yard catch on his only target from Dak Prescott. Hilton was purely a depth option for the team, though, and the 33-year-old's days of being an elite downfield threat are long behind him. It's not yet clear if Dallas has any interest in bringing him back in 2023, or if he'll try to catch on with another club this offseason.

  • Cowboys' T.Y. Hilton: Quiet in regular-season finale

    Hilton caught two of four targets for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to the Commanders. The entire Dallas offense went into the tank in the final game of the regular season, and Hilton's two grabs were second among Dallas wideouts behind CeeDee Lamb's five. The long-time Colt posted a 7-121-0 line on 10 targets over three games with the Cowboys, but Hilton isn't likely to see a significant increase in his role in the wild-card round against the Buccaneers.

  • Cowboys' T.Y. Hilton: Makes impact in Dallas debut

    Hilton caught his only target for 52 yards in Saturday's win over the Eagles. The veteran wideout's first look from Dak Prescott early in the second quarter resulted in an illegal contact penalty on Darius Slay to convert a fourth-and-8 and help lead the Cowboys to their second touchdown of the game, but Hilton's first official target from his new QB produced one of the highlights of the day. On a third-and-30 from the Dallas 29-yard line midway through the fourth quarter, Prescott heaved the ball deep down the sideline and watched Hilton run under it to flip the field, setting up the team's final TD of the afternoon. CeeDee Lamb is the unquestioned top option in the Cowboys passing game, but Hilton's immediate impact in his first game with the team could result in bigger volume over the final two weeks of the regular season and into the playoffs.

  • Cowboys' T.Y. Hilton: Making team debut Saturday

    Hilton is listed as active Saturday versus the Eagles, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. The Cowboys signed Hilton on Monday, Dec. 12, but he was a healthy scratch Week 15 at Jacksonville, meaning he'll be making his debut with the team Saturday. Both James Washington and rookie Jalen Tolbert are inactive Week 16, which leaves CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Noah Brown, Hilton and returner KaVontae Turpin as Dallas' available wide receivers.

  • Cowboys' T.Y. Hilton: Not suiting up Sunday

    Hilton (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game at Jacksonville, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. Hilton signed with the Cowboys on Monday but won't suit up for Week 15 with only one week of practice under his belt. The 33-year-old had 23 receptions for 331 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games for the Colts last season, and he was a free agent for the first 14 weeks of 2022 before he landed with Dallas.

  • Cowboys' T.Y. Hilton: Signs with Dallas

    Dallas signed Hilton to a one-year contract Monday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Hilton caught 23 of 37 targets for 331 yards and three scores across 10 appearances with the Colts last year, but he remained a free agent throughout the offseason and the majority of the 2022 campaign before landing a deal with the Cowboys. The veteran wideout has five 1,000-yard seasons in his 10-year career, but his last came in 2018. Regardless, he joins an already talented group and should provide much-needed depth behind CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Noah Brown and James Washington, the latter of whom made his season debut Week 14 following a prolonged recovery from a foot injury.

  • T.Y. Hilton: Continues to talk to Colts

    The Colts have continued to have a dialogue with Hilton and it's a possibility the team could still sign him, Stephen Holder of ESPN.com reports. Despite general manager Chris Ballard being open to Hilton returning, it seems unlikely given that he's not under contract at the start of training camp. It seems more likely that Hilton will retire. Even if he does re-sign with the Colts, he'd likely have a diminished role as veteran insurance. Hilton had just 331 yards receiving and three TDs in 10 games last season.

  • T.Y. Hilton: Could re-sign with Colts

    Hilton remains a free agent, but the Colts haven't closed the door on re-signing him, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports. The 32-year-old wideout reportedly wants to play another season, and the only team he's ever played for still has a need at his position. Of course, part of the reason the Colts have a need at wide receiver is that they didn't get much from Hilton last year -- 331 yards and three TDs in 10 games. New QB Matt Ryan could use some more weapons alongside third-year wideout Michael Pittman.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Still plans to play

    Hilton still wants to play in the NFL, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports. Hilton dealt with numerous injuries during the 2021 campaign, including a neck issue that required surgery at beginning of the season. The 32-year-old wideout said after a devastating Week 18 loss to the Jaguars that he'd take time to ponder his future and that retirement was a possibility. However, based on Tuesday's comments from Colts general manager Chris Ballard, it appears Hilton may be returning to the team for at least one more season. The emergence of Michael Pittman, added to Carson Wentz's struggles, dealt a big hit to Hilton's fantasy potential during his 10th season in the NFL. The veteran appeared in 10 contests last year and finished with 23 receptions for 331 yards and three touchdowns -- all career lows.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Tallies fluky TD

    Hilton recorded one reception on three targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Raiders. Hilton made his lone catch of the game count, and he's now scored a touchdown in consecutive contests. However, the circumstances of the score were quite fortuitous, as Carson Wentz launched an ill-advised pass that bounced off a pair of defenders and into the waiting arms of Hilton in the end zone. Assuming the Colts' wide receiver corps remains healthy heading into a Week 18 matchup against Jacksonville, Hilton isn't likely to see a significant role in the offense.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Scores rare TD on Saturday

    Hilton reeled in four of five passes for 51 yards and one touchdown during Saturday's 22-16 victory at Arizona. Hilton has taken a back seat in the receiving corps to Michael Pittman on the campaign, but an absent Zach Pascal, who landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier Saturday, allowed the 10th-year wideout to match his season high in targets. Moreover, Hilton pulled off his second TD and second 20-yard-plus catch (39 yards, to be precise) in eight appearances. If Pascal is able to return in the Colts' next game Sunday, Jan. 2 against the Raiders, Hilton may find difficulty making much of an impact in the box score.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: One catch in Week 15 win

    Hilton caught his only target for 19 yards in Saturday's 27-17 win over New England. Hilton became the Colts' de facto No. 1 wide receiver after Michael Pittman was ejected in the third quarter, but Indianapolis was nursing a sizable lead and thus didn't heavily involve Hilton. The 32-year-old veteran has caught more than two passes only once this season, and that was back in his Week 6 season debut. That four-catch, 80-yard performance also marks the only time Hilton has eclipsed the 30-yard mark.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Makes two grabs

    Hilton caught both his targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 31-0 win over the Texans. Hilton ranked fourth on the Colts in targets, trailing Michael Pittman, Nyheim Hines and Zach Pascal. While he managed to haul in both of his looks, there wasn't much receiving production to go around on a day the Colts rushed 48 times while nursing a sizeable second-half lead. The veteran Hilton will now rest up over the bye week before returning with difficult matchups against the Patriots and Cardinals.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Scores rare TD in loss

    Hilton brought in four of five targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' 38-31 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. The veteran speedster was able to notch his first touchdown since Week 17 of last season when he recorded a four-yard scoring grab late in the first half. Hilton's four receptions also equaled his season high in that category, but his sparse yardage totals significantly cap his fantasy value in any game during which he can't supplement them with a touchdown. Hilton does draw a fantasy-friendly matchup in Week 13 when the Colts pay a visit to the Texans.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Estimated as full practice participant

    Hilton (toe) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's practice estimate. The wideout logged a limited session Wednesday, but Hilton's listed participation in Thursday's walkthrough paves the way for him to suit up for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. Barring any setbacks, Hilton is in line to head into the weekend minus a Week 12 injury designation.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Limited session Wednesday

    Hilton was a limited participant at practice Wednesday due to a toe injury. The Colts haven't disclosed whether the toe issue is the result of an injury sustained during the team's Week 11 win over the Bills, or if he got hurt at some point during Wednesday's practice. Over his last three games, the veteran wideout -- who played 28 of the Colts' 62 offensive snaps last week -- has combined for a total of five catches for 47 yards on 12 targets.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Two grabs in win

    Hilton brought in both targets for 26 yards in the Colts' 41-15 win over the Bills on Sunday. The veteran speedster did what he could with his scant opportunities, and he was far from alone as far as Colts pass catchers generating meager production. Carson Wentz threw for just 106 yards overall, so Hilton's modest numbers can be explained away fairly easily. However, the 32-year-old hasn't cleared 30 receiving yards in any of his last three contests, a matter he'll try to rectify against the Buccaneers in Week 12.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: One catch in return

    Hilton (concussion) secured one of five targets for five yards in the Colts' 23-17 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. Hilton's inefficient showing was the latest disappointment in what's turned out to be a debacle of a season for the veteran thus far. After missing the first five games with a serious neck injury, Hilton was subsequently absent for two more due to a thigh injury and a concussion suffered in his return from that injury in Week 8. Having gotten through Sunday unscathed, Hilton will take on the task of trying to build up his numbers against a tough Bills defense in Week 11.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Returning to action Sunday

    Hilton (concussion) has been cleared to suit up for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, JJ Stankevitz of the Colts' official site reports. Hilton has made just two appearances this season due to a variety of injuries, the most recent one a concussion suffered on Oct. 31. He sat out Week 9 as he worked his way through the protocol for head injuries, but after getting in a full practice Thursday he was able to speak to the media Friday. "I feel good," Hilton told Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis. Merely holding a press conference implied Hilton met with an independent neurologist and had the OK to return, and Reich confirmed as much afterward. Hilton will join Michael Pittman and Zach Pascal as the top wide receivers for Carson Wentz (illness) this weekend.

  • Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Listed as full practice participant

    Hilton (concussion) logged a full practice Thursday, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports. Hilton, who was limited Wednesday, shed his non-contact jersey Thursday, per Stephen Holder of The Athletic. With that, the wideout is trending toward gaining clearance to play Sunday against the Jaguars, an outcome that could be cemented by Friday afternoon, once the Colts' final Week 10 injury report is released.
