T.Y. Hilton is trending toward being a true game-time decision for the Indianapolis Colts' Week 15 "Monday Night Football" game against the New Orleans Saints.

While a potential absence for Hilton would hurt Indianapolis' offense as a whole, Zach Pascal's fantasy value would see a massive boost if Hilton can't suit up.

Zach Pascal Fantasy Outlook in Week 15

With Hilton sidelined for the last two weeks, Pascal has been heavily involved in the Colts' passing game. He's racked up at least 70 receiving yards in each of the last two weeks, averaging 91.5 yards and 6.0 receptions on 9.5 targets per game during that two-week stretch.

The Saints are also a pretty solid matchup for wide receivers, as New Orleans has surrendered the fifth-most fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts.

Even if Hilton plays, it's fair to expect him to be at less than full strength, so Pascal should be fantasy viable regardless of Hilton's status. Pascal checks in at WR35 in our Week 15 PPR rankings, making him the only Colts' WR who cracks the top 36 at the position.
