|Indianapolis continues to churn out productive fantasy wide receivers, and Donte Moncrief has the talent to emerge from a position battle that includes former Charger Vincent Brown and rookie Phillip Dorsett. This is a talented and deep pool of receivers, but Moncrief showed his playmaking ability last season and you can bet Luck and the coaching staff will get him more involved in 2015. He has nice size at six-foot two-inches and 226 pounds with deep speed, matching up extremely well against team’s nickel backs and safeties. Yet, for all of the potential, Moncrief’s fantasy value is capped by the number of quality passing options in the offense and the presence of Dorsett. The Colts probably see a lot of Hilton in the man they took with the 29th pick in the 2015 draft. Coming out of Miami, listed at five-foot ten-inches, he not only gives the team depth at the position but provides a potential long-term replacement for Hilton, who will be a free agent after the season. If Moncrief falters and Dorsett continues to shine, he would only need an injury to step into a cushy starting role within a Luck offense.
|Colts, Hilton agree to five-year extension|
$65 M, $39 M guaranteed

|The Indianapolis Colts agreed to a contract extension with fourth-year receiver T.Y. Hilton on Thursday. The deal is for five years and is worth $65 million -- $39 million of which is guaranteed, agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed.
Hilton's $39 million guaranteed is nearly twice as much guaranteed money as any other player on the Colts roster. Quarterback Andrew Luck is second on the team in that category at $22.1 million, according to the Roster Management System. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Hilton will play his rookie contract out at $665,000, but his extension will make him the fourth-richest receiver - as things stand now - in the league once it kicks in after the season. It's a vote of confidence the Colts are confident in undersized wideouts Hilton and Phillip Dorsett working in tandem long-term with Donte Moncrief once Andre Johnson calls it a career.
