As long as T.Y. Hilton is on the field for Saturday's ​Wild Card game, he's primed for a huge afternoon against the Houston Texans.


Normally, you'd have some hesitation when a player is battling an injury, and rightfully so, but even if Hilton is dealing with an ankle issue, his matchup against Houston is too good to ignore. 


Hilton is expected to play against the Texans in what he calls his "second home" at NRG Stadium, a place where the wideout has tallied 41 catches for 933 yards and 7 touchdowns in seven games.

He might enjoy playing in Houston better than he does at home in Indianapolis.

Hilton has torched the Texans to the tune of 13 catches for 314 yards in the two contests this season. But the better of his two games came in Houston, where he went for nine catches and 199 yards. Houston may not enjoy Hilton calling their stadium his second home, but it would be a lot easier to get the receiver to say that if they could actually stop him.

With Hilton's previous success and and over/under on this game close to 50, according to ​FanDuel Sportsbook, there's bound to be enough scoring the make Hilton a top five WR in fantasy this Wild Card weekend.
