After a quiet two-game stretch, T.Y. Hilton absolutely exploded in the Colts' 38-10 win over the Tennessee Titans this past weekend, catching nine passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns. The seven-year veteran's performance may have restored his owners' faith in him, but the NFL still couldn't help but be skeptical.


Hilton was subject to a random drug test from the NFL right after his season-best performance Sunday afternoon.

​​"Random," huh? Sure. Seems totally legit.


All kidding aside, Hilton owners should take his performance against Tennessee with a grain of salt. The Titans have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season and Hilton's remaining fantasy schedule is a bit of a concern.

Hilton and the rest of Indy's pass-catchers own the second-hardest remaining fantasy schedule for wide receivers, which includes tough matchups against the Jaguars, Texans, and Dolphins. While elite numbers like last weekend don't look likely going forward, Hilton could be a serviceable WR3 as the fantasy season comes to a close.
