T.Y. Hilton, star wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts, is questionable for Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, after failing to log any practice reps on Wednesday.

Hilton has missed the past two games with a calf injury and is seemingly at risk of missing this week. He has already missed three games this season, but still leads the team with 32 catches for 360 yards and five touchdowns.

The Colts have also lost all three games Hilton has been inactive, so his absence on the field is certainly missed.

However, despite Hilton's 25 percent target share (T-No. 6 in the NFL), his absence hasn't created much fantasy value for Indianapolis' other wideouts.

Zach Pascal has been decent with Hilton out of the lineup, averaging 58.0 receiving yards in three games without Hilton, but he flopped with Brian Hoyer starting in place of Jacoby Brissett last week, catching two of his seven targets for 26 yards.

If Hilton is sidelined once again, Pascal could be fantasy viable now that Brissett will be back under center in Week 11, but he's still somewhat of a risky option.

Hilton averages 16.3 fantasy points per game in PPR scoring this season, good for the 13th-most among wide receivers. With his status still up in the air, Hilton didn't crack the top-36 in our Week 11 fantasy football PPR rankings, but if he manages to suit up he'll likely shoot up these ranks.
