Found August 16, 2013 on Fox Sports:
My 2013 fantasy football breakout star coming out of the AFC South is Indianapolis Colts' wide receiver, T.Y. Hilton. Other nominees considered were Texans' rookie wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins, and the Titans' Kendall Wright. Some fantasy football owners could be critical of the pick because you could make the argument that Hilton broke out last season. The speedy receiver finished with 50 receptions for 861 yards and seven touchdowns. However, with Donnie Avery now in Kansas City (125 targets in 2012) and Darrius Heyward-Bey having a rough camp, Hilton is in position to become a star behind Reggie Wayne. Wayne will continue to be Andrew Luck's security blanket and possession receiver, but when it comes to strrrrrretching the field, Hilton is option No. 1. He led the team with 17.2 yards per reception last season (5th in the NFL). Hilton's average draft position is currently the 10th round, which in my opinion is a bargain as I believe he's making a stron...

T.Y. Hilton on the cusp of breakout season

Indianapolis Colts Andrew Luck is a star (don’t worry this is still about Hilton) – I just wanted to gush over the rookie phenom a little bit. Andrew Luck doesn’t get enough credit; he took the worst team in the league (2-14 in 2012) to 11-5 and into the playoffs, and 12-year pro Reggie Wayne already calls Luck the team’s leader – quite the praise from the veteran. Luck...

The Indianapolis Colts came to training camp to see how much they had improved over last season. They left Friday still looking for answers.

Indianapolis Colts season preview RB/LB

The running game is a big question mark for the Indianapolis Colts this season. Everyone is excited about Andrew Luck, Reggie Wayne and the passing game, but the ground attack elicits questions.

Colts' Bradshaw 'never once felt' his Giants career was ending

Ahmad Bradshaw won’t be playing Sunday at MetLife Stadium but just standing on the opposite sideline from the Giants is going to be a jolt.

2013 Indianapolis Colts season preview: OL, DL

The Indianapolis Colts went from from a base 4-3 to a 3-4 on their way to improving by nine wins. Going from 2-14 to 11-5 was nothing short of incredible, even with pieces that didn’t quite fit. They called their D a “hybrid” of the 3-4 and 4-3 because they weren’t quite all there yet. And now only players who fit a 3-4 will stay in Indy. Even Dwight Freeney, as successful...

2013 Indianapolis Colts Preview

Regression! Regression! I’m sorry, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me explain. I hated the 2012 Colts. Not because of Andrew Luck (sorely overrated, but we’ll get to that), Chuck Pagano (great story, but a liability in Week 17 and in the playoffs) or their horribly ill-conceived 3-4 defense considering their roster full of Cover-2 players. No, what bothered me about the Colts...
