T.Y. Hilton is officially controversial for Monday night football for the Saints vs. Saints. He has lost the last two games in Indianapolis due to a calf injury and will be a game decision. If he’s playing, he’s a good fantasy option, but you’ll want to back him up with Zach Pascal or Marcus Johnson if you wait for the updates and hoping he’ll be active.
The official active / inactive report drops at approximately 6:50 pm ET, and we’ll have updates here on Twitter @SN_Fantasy.

It’s T.Y. The Hilton playing Monday night
Hilton hasn’t played in the last two weeks. He returned to Week 12 after a separate absence for several weeks for the same calf injury, but apparently aggravated the injury and has now lost weeks 13 and 14. Hilton was practically restricted on Friday before missing Saturday practice, it could also be a bad sign.

Indianapolis coach Frank Reich confirmed on Saturday that Hilton will be a real decision on Monday night’s game. Wright added that if Hilton were playing, there would be no racing count at the time of the game.
Because Hilton risks again aggravating the injury, if he plays, he is not without danger, but if you master him and you can expect him, it is still a solid game against an overpriced Saints pass. If Hilton is out, Zach Pascal goes on to WR No. 1, while Marcus Johnson accompanies him in two sets. Pascal will be the preferred game of the two, but it may belong to your league and Johnson is the next best option to get exemptions if you need a backup while waiting for Hilton.
