|T.Y. Hilton took another step forward as the top option in the Coltsí passing game during the 2014 season. However, he is entering the last year of his contract and lacks prototypical size for a No. 1 receiver. It remains to be seen whether the team and its star receiver will get an extension hammered out prior to the regular season, but fantasy owners shouldnít worry too much. Hilton led the team in targets, finishing with at least eight targets in 11 of 18 games played including the playoffs (this also counts week 17 when the Colts didnít play their starters the entire game). If there is a knock on Hilton, it is his relatively low touchdown total given his stature atop the Coltsí depth chart and high-scoring offense. This isnít an area that is likely to improve with the addition of Johnson and the teamís preference to use the tight end position when in the red zone. For this reason, Hilton remains a borderline WR1 in most formats.

Phillip Dorsett has speed to burn

|Competition in the Indianapolis Colts' wide receivers' room thickened last Thursday when the team used its first-round pick on one of its deepest positions. Suffice to say when Phillip Dorsett's name was called, many were surprised. Coming off the best season of his three-year career, T.Y. Hilton is entering the last year of his rookie contract. To be sure, a big payday awaits one of the league's most talented young wideouts.
Whether or not that comes with the Colts remains to be seen.
FFToday's Take: With a logjam at receiver, it's unlikely the rookie Dorsett will make a big impact this season but if the Colts decided to let Hilton walk after 2015, Dorsett's value would be on the rise. "There's nothing I can do about that," Hilton said Wednesday of last week's draft pick. "That's who they picked. That's cool with me."
