    T.Y. Hilton a Non-Factor Against Houston

    Sunday, December 31, 9:23 PM

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton caught three passes for 14 yards in a 22-13 victory over the Houston Texans. Hilton's final game of the 2017 season highlights what has been an extremely inconsistent and overall unproductive year for the shifty wideout, with four 100-yard games dispersed around eight other games of 30 yards or fewer. It will be interesting to see how new general manager Chris Ballard decides to handle Hilton's contract, as he is signed through 2020 but was drafted and paid by the former Colts regime. A big splash signing at wide receiver might lower Hilton's fantasy value but help the offense as a whole.
