A shifty and speedy receiver, T.Y. Hilton convinced many fantasy owners he was a legitimate receiving threat after finishing the 2012 season with 50 receptions for 861 yards and seven touchdowns.
And this was with a rookie QB.
In addition to these stellar achievements, T.Y. Hilton also registered five 100+ yards games in 2012.
But is this enough to simply claim him a “sleeper” candidate?
In the 2012 offseason, the Indianapolis Colts went ahead and scooped up Darrius Heyward-Bey (formerly of Oakland) which suggested the Colts weren’t entirely trustworthy of the young Hilton, despite his accomplishments.
Even now many beat writers are suggesting that both Heyward-Bey and Hilton will split time as the No.2 receiver opposite of Reggie Wayne.
Not only is this impractical, it could potentially be inaccurate.
