Hilton had three receptions for 14 yards on six targets in Sunday's win over Houston. Hilton continued his boom-or-bust season as he had four games of 100 yards or more receiving, and eight games of 30 yards or less. He had a big decline in production without Andrew Luck as his 57 receptions and 966 yards receiving were the lowest since his rookie season in 2012. His four touchdowns were a career low. No player may get a bigger boost if Andrew Luck is able to return in 2018.
Hilton snagged six of 12 targets for 100 yards during Saturday's 23-16 loss to the Ravens. The 12 targets were three more than Hilton's previous season high and snapped a season-long five straight games without a 100-yard performance. It's been a tough season for Hilton as he has not had the benefit of nabbing passes from Andrew Luck, but his 17.6 yards per catch represent a career high and ranks third in the league among qualified pass catchers. He wraps up the season against a Houston team that he torched for 175 yards and two scores in Week 9.
Hilton caught two of four targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Bills. Hilton tied for the team lead in targets, but each of his receptions went for just 10 yards as Jacoby Brissett relied on short attempts in the snowy conditions. The wideout shook loose for 51 yards and a touchdown last week against the Jaguars, but he's failed to reach 30 receiving yards in six of the last eight games overall. Hilton remains capable of breaking off a long gain at any point, but a lack of consistent quarterback play has severely hampered his fantasy value. This should remain the case Thursday against the capable Broncos secondary.
Hilton caught three of six targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-10 loss to Jacksonville. Hilton got loose for a 40-yard score on fourth-and-two in the third quarter to reduce his team's deficit to two touchdowns. His ability to pull off big plays in even the most difficult matchups makes Hilton difficult to bench, but he's been frustrating to own with fewer than 60 receiving yards in all but three games this season.
Hilton contributed just two catches for 15 yards on five targets in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Titans. Hilton tied running back Frank Gore for second on the team in targets behind tight end Jack Doyle's eight, but the speedy wideout finished a distant sixth in receiving yards. Tennessee did an incredible job containing the dangerous Hilton in their two meetings this season, holding him to a combined 34 yards on three catches. While he's showcased a high ceiling with a trio of performances over 150 yards, Hilton's been mostly disappointing the rest of the time with under 30 yards in six of his other eight appearances, including five of the past six.
