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.

Analysis: 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 where 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.
