The Indianapolis Colts will hope to recover from a brutal 31-25 overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens when they take on the Houston Texans in Week 6. The Colts are looking for their second win of the Carson Wentz era and hope to make up some ground in the division race with a victory. The Colts might get star receiver T.Y. Hilton back as he returned to practice Wednesday and is eligible to play Sunday.

Fantasy football implications

If Hilton does play, he’s likely to take away opportunities from Zach Pascal and Parris Campbell operating in the middle of the field. The Colts use their running backs a lot even in the passing game, so Hilton’s upside is somewhat capped by the team’s offensive philosophy. However, he’s still a valuable weapon to have for Wentz going forward. The first week back from any injury is always difficult for skill players, so treat Hilton with caution heading into Week 6.
