The Indianapolis Colts are going to try and get wide receiver T.Y. Hilton more involved in the passing game, according to George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin. Head coach Chuck Pagano said that the coaches talked about getting Hilton more plays and touches going forward.
Hilton only managed three receptions for 20 yards in Sunday's opener, a narrow win over the Oakland Raiders in which the Colts under-performed on both sides of the ball. Hilton is the team's No. 2 receiver behind Reggie Wayne, but he only took part in 24 offensive snaps in Week 1.
In his rookie year, Hilton managed 50 receptions for 861 yards and seven touchdowns.
Fantasy Impact: Hilton was considered a solid option for fantasy owners, but not as a primary receiver. He was disappointing in Week 1, to say the least. More accurately, the amount of playing time he received was disappointing. More is expected of Hilton going forward, and this statement by Pagano just echoes that sentiment. Expect Hilton to produce in the coming games.
