Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is officially active for the team's Week 15 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. The news comes at an opportune time for fantasy owners with a shot at the championship round next week. 

Hilton didn't practice all week but did test out his injured ankle in pregame warmups. The team was optimistic leading into today and he'll be able to battle through the pain to help the Colts take another positive step toward a playoff run. 

Indy will certainly need their star receiver to beat a Dallas team that has won five straight games. Hilton went for a massive 199 yards last week in a road win against the Houston Texans -- he is now averaging 139 yards over his last four games. 

Even with Hilton active, expect Eric Ebron to see a lot of targets once again. Over the last two weeks, Ebron has 24 of them.
