T.Y. Hilton caught 3-of-6 targets for 14 yards in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Texans.
Hilton was clearly not on the same page with Jacoby Brissett for large chunks of the season; he had four 100-yard games scattered around eight other games of 30 yards or fewer. Andrew Luck not being healthy obviously played a major role in Hilton's down season that sees him finish with a 57-966-4 line, his first year under 1,000 yards since his 2012 rookie season. Hilton is under contract through 2020, but all of his guaranteed money is up and there were trade rumors swirling around Halloween's deadline this year. GM Chris Ballard didn't draft or pay Hilton, so it's possible the Colts look for a true No. 1 alpha-dog wideout this offseason. Hilton is a fine 1B or high-end No. 2, but he's not a guy that's going to win in contested situations at 5'9/180. Ballard may choose to blow this whole offense up and start over with a healthy Luck.

T.Y. Hilton caught 6-of-12 targets for 100 yards in the Colts' Week 16 loss to the Ravens.
The 100-yard effort was just Hilton's fourth of 2017, and first in six games. He could have had a bigger day, but Jacoby Brissett was scattershot in the rain. Hilton needs 48 yards in Week 17 to post his fifth-straight 1,000-yard season. The speed demon desperately needs Andrew Luck to return healthy for 2018.

T.Y. Hilton caught 5-of-7 targets for 41 yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Broncos.
It looked like it might be an early night for Hilton after he was writhing around with a right hand injury early in the second quarter, but he ended up missing only a handful of plays. The yards were actually his third most across his past nine games. He will be a big-play reliant WR3 against the Ravens' Jimmy Smith-less secondary in Week 16.
