T.Y. Hilton is one of this year’s most talked about sleepers. With second year quarterback Andrew Luck playing at a high level, Hilton will be targeted quite frequently. Hilton has the speed and elusiveness to have a breakout game this week against the 49ers.
Last week Hilton saw a dozen targets and was able to reel in six of those for 124 yards against Miami. Hilton has another favorable matchup this week against the 49ers.
During Week 1 when the Niners played against the Green Bay Packers, wide outs were able to catch 14 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns. The Colts figure to air the ball out against a sometimes vulnerable 49ers pass defense.
The new addition of stud running back Trent Richardson can only help Hilton’s production. The chemistry between Hilton and Luck is growing from week to week as are his targets. Fantasy owners should have faith in Hilton this week and give him the start.
