Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the WR position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Granted, the second-year pro is coming off four straight dismal fantasy outings, but we think it’s time to dust Hilton off and reinsert him into your starting lineup as a flex or fantasy WR3. It looks like the Colts passing attack is clicking on all cylinders again. The Texans allowed the ninth-fewest fantasy points to opposing receivers during the last month. However, don’t forget that Hilton torched Houston with seven catches for 121 yards and three touchdowns back in Week 9.
It’s hard to predict too big of an increase in Hilton’s numbers for 2013 with the addition of former Raider Darrius Heyward-Bey to the Colts roster. While we feel that Hilton is the superior talent and should beat out Heyward-Bey for the starter’s role, Heyward-Bey will be just enough of a thorn in Hilton’s side that we prefer to take the conservative route in predicting Hilton’s numbers for 2013.
