Tyreek Hill has been ruled out for Week 17.
He will join Patrick Mahomes as a top option getting ready for January, and the team also ruled out Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) and Sammy Watkins (calf) for this week. It will be interesting to see if Travis Kelce ends up playing with a chance to lead the league in receiving yards.
Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is officially active for Week 16.
The Chiefs will reportedly monitor Hill closely this week, but he’s basically impossible to keep out of fantasy lineups. Kansas City would be foolish to put Hill out there if they felt he was clearly at less than 100% or at a higher risk of worsening the hamstring issue.
Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is officially questionable for Week 16.
The Chiefs have the postseason to look ahead to, so they may ultimately hold out Hill if they don’t feel he’s close enough to 100% on Sunday.
Tyreek Hill (hamstring) was officially a full participant in today's practice.
Following the bye week that gave him extra time to rest, Hill is set to return to the lineup this week after missing most of the Chiefs' last game a couple of Mondays ago with a hamstring pull. The dynamic receiver is obviously a WR1 against the Raiders for Week 13.
Tyreek Hill's hamstring injury is minor, according to Ian Rapoport.
The bye comes at the perfect time for Kansas City, as Hill is considered day-to-day and will likely be OK to play for a Week 13 showdown with the Raiders. Ideally, the 25-year-old will get in at least a limited practice to start next week, which would put him on track to suit up.
Tyreek Hill (hamstring) did not return to Monday night’s game.
Hill left on the team’s opening possession and didn’t catch a pass. Fortunately, the bye week is coming at the perfect time for Hill and this injury-riddled Chiefs, and him not being officially ruled out at any point tonight should mean he will be good to go against Oakland in Week 13.
Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is officially questionable to return for the Chiefs.
Hill pulled up running a deep route on Kansas City's first drive, and he hobbled gingerly to the sideline while holding the back of his leg. The dynamic receiver was getting worked on by trainers on the sideline, but he's since headed to the locker room. There was some thought that Hill might be dealing with cramping and was getting an IV, but the Chiefs officially call it a hamstring injury, which obviously isn't a good sign. We'll keep you updated in the All-Pro's status.
Tyreek Hill (shoulder) is officially active for the Chiefs.
Hill is ready to go for today’s Week 6 game against the Texans after missing the last four games with a serious shoulder injury suffered in the season opener. Hill should be immediately inserted into fantasy lineups as a great WR1 in a potential shootout.
Tyreek Hill (shoulder) is officially questionable for Week 6.
The Chiefs are said to be optimistic about Hill’s chances of getting cleared to play against the Texans this Sunday, and this questionable tag indicates he has a decent chance to suit up for the first time since Week 1. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid says the All-Pro will be a gametime decision. Last week, Hill was ruled out ahead of the weekend, so he’s at least making considerable progress. Keep in mind that Kansas City has a game next Thursday night, so Hill will have a short week to get ready for Week 7, which could potentially have an impact on his availability this Sunday.
Tyreek Hill (shoulder) officially remains limited in practice.
Until Hill gets a full practice in, it's difficult to consider him more than 50/50 to return to the field. That said, the final Week 6 injury report will be released tomorrow, so we'll see if he's able to avoid being ruled out ahead of the weekend. A questionable tag would be a good sign.
Tyreek Hill (shoulder) was officially limited in today's practice.
A full practice would have been a really promising sign, but for now, consider Hill questionable to face the Texans this Sunday. The All-Pro receiver's status will be tracked the next couple of days leading up to the final Week 6 injury report being released on Friday.
Tyreek Hill (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 5.
Hill wasn't expected to return on Sunday night, but he's made great progress in his recovery and seems like he could potentially be ready for Week 6. Sammy Watkins will continue operating as the team's No. 1 receiver with Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson remaining in play as high-upside FLEX options.
Tyreek Hill (shoulder) officially remains limited in practice.
Expect Hill to remain limited again in tomorrow's practice, and things would get really interesting if he's able to get a questionable tag ahead of Sunday night's game. We'd say he's likely to sit again this week, but perhaps he'll surprise and make a strong push to face the Colts.
Tyreek Hill (shoulder) was officially limited in today's practice.
Hill is making nice progress as he returns from his serious shoulder injury, and video from today's practice showed the All-Pro receiver moving around with his usual lightning speed during a drill. Contact is another issue, and Hill is probably on the doubtful side of things for Week 5; but he should be back on the field very soon.
Tyreek Hill (shoulder) is expected to miss four-to-six weeks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Rapoport says the Chiefs do not currently plan to place Hill on injured reserve, which is not a surprise if he has a four-to-six week timetable. This sternoclavicular joint injury is said to be a very serious one, though, so it would not be surprising if Hill misses more time than projected. You'll obviously want to hold on to Hill if you have him on your fantasy roster, and second-round rookie Mecole Hardman figures to step into a bigger role and get more targets during Hill's absence. Hardman is on the boom/bust FLEX radar, while Sammy Watkins gets a bump into clear WR1 range as Patrick Mahomes' No. 1 wide receiver. A Thursday Night Football game at Denver in Week 7 would put Hill at around six weeks, but a Week 8 matchup against the Packers after a mini bye might be the most likely return date for the All-Pro receiver.
Tyreek Hill will not require surgery, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Hill will miss a few weeks, but not needing surgery is obviously a great sign, and fantasy owners can probably expect him back at some point in October. Sammy Watkins gets a big boost and is an immediate WR1 option for the next few games, and Mecole Hardman is worth picking up as a high-upside weapon.
Tyreek Hill went to the hospital for his shoulder injury.
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid says that Hill went to a local hospital to get his shoulder injury treated by their trauma department, so it sounds like the All-Pro receiver's shoulder injury is pretty serious. Right now, the team isn't sharing anything else about the extent of the injury or the timetable for Hill's return, but more information should be available sometime tonight or tomorrow.
Tyreek Hill (shoulder) has been ruled out for the Chiefs.
Hill was carted to the locker room with the shoulder injury earlier, and now he's out for the rest of today's game against the Jaguars. Sammy Watkins, who already has over 150 yards and two touchdowns, will now assume the role as Kansas City's No. 1 wide receiver and could draw All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey for the rest of the afternoon. We'll see if we get an update on Hill's exact injury later today.
UPDATE: Tyreek Hill's injury is a right shoulder injury.
Hill is officially questionable to return. It was surprising that Hill needed a cart for a shoulder injury, but there's probably a chance for him to return today.
Tyreek Hill gets carted to the locker room.
It's unclear what happened exactly, and Hill made it to the sideline under his own power, but he's now being carted to the locker room. We'll update you as more information becomes available on the All-Pro receiver's status.
The Chiefs are signing Tyreek Hill to a three-year contract extension, according to multiple reports.
The deal is reportedly worth $54 million, which puts him at $18 million per year. There was talk that the Chiefs were still negotiating a contract extension with Hill, but it's still surprising that they're handing him this big contract just months after it looked like the All-Pro receiver was in danger of being suspended for a long period of time or kicked out of the league entirely for a alleged abuse of his young son and on-tape audio of him threatening his then-fiancee. Kansas City must have felt good about Hill's off-field situation, but hopefully Hill behaves the right way moving forward after being handed a boatload of money. From a fantasy perspective, Hill's long-term outlook is obviously strong with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, barring any off-field issues.
Jalen Ramsey is expected to shadow Tyreek Hill in Week 1.
This isn't a huge story, but it should be entertaining for the All-Pro cornerback to follow the All-Pro offensive playmaker around in the first week of the season. Facing Ramsey will likely limit Hill's upside a bit to open the year, but Hill obviously isn't a player that should be benched if you have him on your fantasy team.
Tyreek Hill was carted off at practice today with a bruised quad.
Fantasy owners were holding their breath when Hill was carted off, but it was quickly determined to be a minor issue that should have no impact on the receiver's outlook. The 25-year-old is being drafted as high as the first round of fantasy drafts, but that may be a little too rich.
Tyreek Hill was carted away during practice, according to Kimberley A. Martin.
Per Martin, the dynamic receiver was "stretching/bending" his right leg in a medical tent, and then a cart came to take him away. It's possible this is just a minor issue, but it's never good when a player is carted off. We'll have an update on Hill when one becomes available.
Tyreek Hill will not be suspended for alleged child abuse, according to multiple reports.
Well this is a major shocker. There were rumblings that Hill would be facing a short suspension of maybe two or four games, but it's a surprise that he's facing zero discipline after the NFL's investigation into child abuse allegations. In a statement from the league, the NFL states: "the NFL cannot conclude that Mr. Hill violated the Personal Conduct Policy." It appears the league went with an innocent-until-proven guilty approach here, but it's curious that Hill faces no discipline when he was caught on tape telling his then-fiancee that she should be "terrified" of him while throwing an expletive at her, while Tom Brady was suspended a few seasons ago for supposedly having footballs deflated when there was no legitimate evidence that was the case. Anyway, the NFL can re-open its investigation if new information comes to light, but that doesn't seem likely. The star receiver will be available for all 16 games in 2019, and he is now reinserted into the conversation as a high draft pick in fantasy football leagues if you feel comfortable drafting him. Hill's presence obviously helps Patrick Mahomes as he looks to replicate last year's magical MVP season, but teammate Sammy Watkins should probably be knocked down slightly in rankings, as he looked to have a chance to be Mahomes' top wide receiver for a chunk of this year until now.
Tyreek Hill will meet with the NFL this week, according to Yahoo Sports' Terez Paylor.
The Johnson County district attorney said the investigation into the criminal child abuse case regarding Hill is closed; and the child protective services is apparently concluded, too, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league would not "interfere" until that time. Hill, who will reportedly have his legal team at the meeting, speaking to the league this week should indicate that a decision could be made as early as this weekend or next week. At the latest, we'd think the NFL will make a ruling by the start of Chiefs training camp late next month. Dynasty league owners waiting to make a decision on Hill should expect a long suspension that could last for all of 2019, but anything less than eight games would be really surprising. Fantasy owners in general also have to decide if they even want someone like Hill on their roster.
The criminal investigation into Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is no longer active, according to The Kansas City Star.
This is all stemming from the child abuse incident that resulted in Hill's three-year-old son breaking his arm, but Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe told the Star in an email, "It's not an active investigation," and he wouldn't even confirm that the investigation had been re-opened at all following the taped recording of Hill threatening his fiancee surfacing. Hill has been away from the team, but both the NFL and the Chiefs have had little to say about the situation, though perhaps that will change if the league conducts their own investigation now that law enforcement has apparently moved on. There is still a chance Hill is released, suspended, or both, but the longer he remains on the team, the better his chances of sticking around are. We think the most likely scenario may end up being a one-year suspension that gets Hill back on the field in 2020.
The Chiefs have banned Tyreek Hill from the team facility.
Chiefs GM Brian Veach made a statement at the conclusion of the first round of the draft, saying that the team was "deeply disturbed by what we heard" on the audio recording acquired by KCTV5. The team is going to acquire more information on the matter, but things do not look good for Hill—even if the Chiefs keep him on the roster (which seems unlikely), he's facing a lengthy suspension from the NFL. We won't be surprised if Hill is released by the end of the weekend.
Audio emerges regarding Tyreek Hill's alleged child abuse.
KCTV5 News in Kansas City obtained audio of Hill and Crystal Epinal (the mother of Hill's child) talking about their son and the alleged abuse. In the audio, Hill tells Epinal: "you need to be terrified of me, too, [expletive]. That's why you can't keep a [expletive] man." Obviously, this evidence is pretty damning, and this has been pretty stupid of Hill all around considering he would've been set to get a potential $100-million contract from the Chiefs soon. Now, his future in Kansas City and in the NFL is in major doubt, and dynasty owners of Hill should be pessimistic about the situation. At the very least, he's facing a lengthy suspension. Remember, the Chiefs were quick to take action and release Kareem Hunt; while the fact that the draft going on tonight and through Saturday might complicate things, don't be surprised if the dynamic receiver is released soon.
Tyreek Hill will not be charged with child abuse.
There simply isn’t enough evidence to prove it was Hill that caused the broken arm of his small child, so he isn’t being charged. This certainly doesn’t mean that Hill won’t be disciplined by the NFL, as the league will likely continue with its own investigation—and the fact the the District Attorney said there is evidence that a crime was committed isn’t a good sign for Hill. We suspect a suspension will be coming for Hill, but it likely won't be a lengthy absence if he is indeed suspended.
UPDATE: Tyreek Hill is being investigated for two incidents, according to KCTV.
KCTV obtained two police reports: one from March 5 and one from March 14. The second incident didn't lost Hill's name, but it happened at his address and resulted in his 3-year-old son sustaining a broken arm. Aside from the police investigation, the Chiefs are looking into the matter themselves, and the NFL is almost certainly doing their thing, too. This situation likely complicates the potential record-breaking contract extension Hill might've received in the coming months, but we'll see what happens when more information becomes available.
Tyreek Hill is under investigation for alleged battery, according to the Kansas City Star.
A police report lists a juvenile as the victim, and Hill's fiancee Crystal Espinal—who Hill previously assaulted in college—is listed as "others involved." In a statement to the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs said they are "aware of the investigation" and "in the process of gathering information." The full article (linked below) says "the incident was against the couple's son, resulting in a broken arm," but Hill has not yet been charged. Obviously, this is a bad situation for the star receiver, and if indicted, his past might force the team to make another difficult decision after releasing Kareem Hunt last year.
Patriots limit Tyreek Hill in the AFC Championship Game.
While All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore shadowed Sammy Watkins for the most part, Hill drew constant double teams throughout the Chiefs' AFC title game loss, catching just one pass (on three targets) for 42 yards. The reception came on a very deep corner route on which Hill used his great speed to beat a double team. Entering his fourth NFL season, Hill will offer as much season-long and weekly upside as any wide receiver in fantasy drafts this summer.
Tyreek Hill scores in playoff win versus the Colts.
Hill caught eight passes for 72 yards and had one carry for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Divisional Round win. The rushing score was on an end around where he received great blocking and used his elite speed to zoom to the end zone. Hill had a drop on a corner route in the first half, but he was otherwise a reliable receiver on intermediate passed for Patrick Mahomes. The third-year receiver will look to make big plays both on offense and as a punt returner in the AFC Championship Game next Sunday.
Tyreek Hill quickly breaks slump in win over the Raiders.
Hill caught five passes for 101 yards and a touchdown, which came from 67 yards away on the game's opening possession. He also rushed once for a 15-yard touchdown. "Cheetah" hadn't scored in over a month, but he finishes the regular season with a career-best 87/1,479/12 receiving line while adding 22 carries for 151 yards and a touchdown. Plus, he returned a punt for six. Hill will obviously be difficult to stop in January.
Tyreek Hill totals 91 yards against the Seahawks.
Hill caught four passes for 74 yards along with two carries for 17 yards in the Chiefs’ Week 16 loss. Hill briefly left the game with an apparent knee issue, but he appeared to be fine despite it looking scary at first based on his reaction. Next week, the Raiders are going to look to limit Hill and did a good job of it (one reception, 13 yards) in their first matchup a few weeks ago.
Tyreek Hill bottled up in loss to the Chargers.
Hill caught four passes for 46 yards and rushed three times for negative-five yards. As we suspected might be the case, Los Angeles was able to erase "Cheetah" for the most part as Sammy Watkins (foot) missed another game, and it led to the first outing with fewer than 50 yards this season for the dynamic playmaker. Whether or not Watkins is back next week, though, Hill should be back to his elite WR1 ways in Seattle for the fantasy championship.
Tyreek Hill (heel/wrist) is officially active for Thursday night.
Despite being listed as questionable, there wasn’t much doubt Hill would play against the Chargers. However, he’s probably at less than 100%, so expectations might have to be tempered slightly. Hill is too good not to have in fantasy lineups for the second week of the fantasy playoffs, though.
Tyreek Hill (heel/wrist) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday night.
Hill was again limited in today's practice. He's thought to be ready to go to face the Chargers, but he's no lock to play on a short week despite the optimism—especially with the Chiefs in a strong position in the AFC West even with a loss considering their division record. Check back for Hill's status tomorrow at around 6:50 PM ET.
Tyreek Hill (heel/wrist) was officially a limited participant in today's practice.
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid doesn't sound concerned about Hill missing Thursday's game against the Chargers, but we'll see how he's listed on the final Week 15 injury report when it's released sometime tomorrow.
Tyreek Hill helps spark Chiefs' win against the Ravens.
Hill caught eight pass (on 14 targets) for 139 yards along with one carry for six yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 overtime win. The third-year receiver made tough catches throughout the game, and his best play was a 48-yard reception on a fourth-and-nine with under two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter as he came out of nowhere to catch a dime from Patrick Mahomes deep down the field. Hill dealt with a heel injury in the game, which should be watched closely—but he should be fine to play on Thursday night against the Chargers.
Tyreek Hill (heel) has returned to the game for the Chiefs.
This is a great sign after he didn't look good moving around before going to the locker room at the end of the first half. Hill shouldn't be too limited for the rest of the game.
Tyreek Hill's injury is officially a heel injury.
The Chiefs say Hill is questionable to return against the Ravens. A heel injury probably isn't a great sign, and hopefully it's not anything to do with his Achilles. At least the Chiefs haven't immediately ruled Hill out, but we have to just hope this isn't a serious injury.
Tyreek Hill leaves game with apparent foot/ankle injury.
Hill had his cleat and sock off and didn't appear able to put much pressure on his foot, and now he's headed to the locker room. With under a minute remaining in the first half, Hill is unlikely to return this half, and now we just have to hope this injury doesn't keep him out in the second half or longer. We'll update you as more information becomes available.
Raiders limit Tyreek Hill in Week 13.
Hill caught one pass for 13 yards and had two carries for 37 yards against Oakland. There were a few missed opportunities on deep balls, including one that was overthrown and one that probably should've been caught by Hill, so it had the potential to be a big game. However, the Raiders defense probably put an emphasis on not allowing Hill's gamebreaking ability to beat them. Next week against the Ravens is a tough matchup, but Hill should bounce back with a stronger outing in the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
Tyreek Hill goes over 200 yards with two touchdowns against the Rams.
There were a plethora of fantasy points in this crazy third-highest-scoring game in NFL history, and Hill was the chief benefit. He caught ten passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns, going over 100 yards with a touchdown in each half, as he pretty much just couldn't be covered. Hill's 73-yard touchdown made him the third player in NFL history with 15 touchdowns over 50+ yards before turning 25 years old, joining Hall of Famers Gale Sayers and Randy Moss as the only others to accomplish the feat. With cannon-armed Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, it's extremely difficult to contain Hill on all areas of the field for a full 60 minutes. He had some questionable punt-return decisions, but from a fantasy perspective owners must be thrilled with Hill in their lineups. He'll obviously remain a great WR1 option after the Chiefs' bye week.
Tyreek Hill scores twice in Week 10.
Hill caught seven passes (on ten targets) for 117 yards and a touchdown along with one carry for 20 yards against the Cardinals. The first touchdown was on a 37-yard deep ball where Arizona basically just let him run right through the defense down the middle of the field, and the second touchdown was on a 14-yard comeback type of route in the middle of the end zone, which he celebrated by going into the stands and taking control of a CBS camera. Hill will look to make more big plays in a potential shootout with the Rams in Week 11.
Tyreek Hill gets six offensive touches against the Browns.
Hill carried two times for 16 yards and added four receptions (on five targets) for 69 yards in the Week 9 victory. The speedy receiver was being shadowed by Browns rookie cornerback Denzel Ward, but Ward left the game with a hip injury. It was simply a spread-the-wealth passing attack for the Chiefs, as five different players had at least 50 receiving yards in the win. Hill might see a good amount of Patrick Peterson next week, but he should remain in fantasy lineups next week against Arizona.
Tyreek Hill is off the Week 9 injury report.
Hill was down to a limited practice yesterday, but it was probably just a case of the Chiefs limiting the dynamic receiver's practice reps. He was back up to a full participant today and is ready to face the Browns. Hill should obviously remain in fantasy lineups as an excellent option, even in a potentially-tough matchup with Browns cornerback Denzel Ward.
Tyreek Hill (groin) was limited in today’s practice.
This is a downgrade from Hill being a full participant in yesterday’s practice, but the Chiefs might just be managing his reps. We’ll see if he’s listed on the injury report when it’s released tomorrow.
Tyreek Hill (groin) was officially a full participant in today's practice.
Any concerns about Hill's Week 9 status can be put to rest, as he'll be out there on Sunday against the Browns. Hill could see a lot of Browns rookie cornerback Denzel Ward in the game, but he's obviously an excellent option in fantasy lineups.
Tyreek Hill catches three passes against the Broncos.
Hill gained 70 yards on his three receptions (four targets) in the Week 8 victory, but he did leave the game with a groin injury. Hopefully it's just minor, but it'll be something to keep an eye on throughout the upcoming week. Through eight games, Hill is on pace for 88 receptions, 1,410 receiving yards, 14 receiving touchdowns, 20 carries, and 90 rushing yards.
Tyreek Hill scores in 45-10 victory over the Bengals.
Hill caught seven of a team-high ten targets for 68 yards, including a three-yard touchdown reception on a broken play for Patrick Mahomes' fourth score of the night. He also rushed twice for eight yards and surprisingly dropped a wide-open touchdown, but it didn't really matter with Kansas City dominating once again. Look for "Cheetah" to stay hot next Sunday against the Broncos, who he caught nine passes for 54 yards against in Week 4.
Tyreek Hill explodes in the second half of 43-40 loss to the Patriots.
Hill caught seven passes for 142 yards and three touchdowns, all of which came in the final 20 or so minutes of the game. New England did an excellent job containing “Cheetah” for the most part, but he eventually got loose on more than one occasion, with the highlight being an unfair 75-yard touchdown down the left sideline that tied the game 40-40. Hill might be a little more volatile than last year with so many playmakers on Kansas City’s offense, but he remains a high-upside WR1/WR2 option for Week 7 against the Bengals—another SNF showing for Andy Reid’s club.
Tyreek Hill totals 87 yards from scrimmage against the Jaguars.
Hill was matched up with cornerback Jalen Ramsey for most of the afternoon, and he certainly held his own by getting open on the All-Pro—including deep—after a week of some trash talk between the two, including a slight by Ramsey, who said Hill was an All-Pro returner but not a receiver. Hill caught four passes for 61 yards and added two carries for 26 yards in the Week 5 victory. It'll be interesting to see how the Patriots defend Hill next Sunday night, but the Chiefs have so many weapons to be defended that it shouldn't be a huge concern for his potential Week 6 output.
Tyreek Hill gets ten offensive touches against the Broncos.
Hill caught nine of a team-high 13 targets in the Monday night victory, ganging 54 yards while also added a two-yard carry. The Broncos did a relatively good job of limiting the dynamic third-year receiver, who has another tough matchup next week against the Jaguars. At the quarter-mark of the season, Hill is on a 92/1,456/12 pace.
Tyreek Hill totals 56 yards in Week 3.
Hill caught two passes for 51 yards and had two carries for five yards against the Niners. His highlight was a great leaping 42-yard reception where he skied and easily came down with the deep pass. Hill was also targeted on a deep ball to the end zone, but Niners cornerback Richard Sherman deflected the pass away from a waiting Hill at the last second. Next week, Hill faces a Broncos team he's had a lot of success against in the past, and he remains an excellent option in fantasy lineups.
Tyreek Hill scores in Week 2.
Hill was third on the team in receiving, but he caught five-of-six targets for 90 yards and a touchdown in the victory against Pittsburgh. The score was on a 36-yard deep ball in which Hill broke free with a good release at the line. The fact that it felt like a quiet game for Hill yet he still had 90 yards and a touchdown indicates how good of a fantasy option he is right now. There are simply too many weapons for the defense to cover when things are clicking for Kansas City. Keep Hill in lineups for Week 3 against the Niners.
Tyreek Hill explodes in Week 1 victory.
Hill caught seven passes for 169 yards and two touchdowns, also adding a 91-yard punt return touchdown and two carries for four yards. It seems like Hill shouldn't be able to continue dominating like he has since entering the league in 2016, but defenses have had no answer for him to date, and Andy Reid deserves a lot of credit for coming up with creative ways to get the ball in his hands. "Cheetah" is a high-upside WR1/WR2 in a potential shootout with Pittsburgh next Sunday.
Tyreek Hill will not play this Sunday.
The Chiefs are locked into the number four seed in the AFC, and they are giving some players a rest. Hill's second NFL regular season was a big one, as he caught 75 passes for 1,183 receiving yards and seven receiving touchdowns along with 17 carries for 59 rushing yards and one punt return touchdown. Those that selected him in their fantasy drafts must be happy with the production, as his numbers were that of a number one receiver despite him not fully being there as an all-around player on the outside. The dynamic second-year player will look to make some huge plays in the postseason for Kansas City.
Tyreek Hill goes over 100 yards in Week 16.
Hill played an excellent game against the Dolphins, catching six of seven targets for 109 yards, with along reception of 52 yards. It appeared the second-year receiver made a spectacular catch in the end zone when he got both feet in bounds, but it was curiously held up as an incomplete pass after a replay review, which might've been frustrating for fantasy owners. It's possible Hill sits out in Week 17 with the division locked up for KC, so we'll have to see if Andy Reid gives an indication of playing time heading into next weekend.
Tyreek Hill catches 64-yard touchdown in win over the Chargers.
Hill finished with five receptions for 88 yards and the score, which was a deep ball down the right sideline in the first half against top corner Casey Hayward. The dynamic second-year pro is always a threat to take one to the house from anywhere, but he won't be more than a volatile WR2 in Week 16 against the Dolphins, especially if cornerback Xavien Howard keeps up his hot play.
Tyreek Hill caught four passes for 75 yards in Sunday's win over the Raiders.
Hill had the longest play of the day with a 44-yard reception, but he didn't really have a chance to explode like he did earlier this season against Oakland because the Chiefs led throughout in the convincing win. Hill should go over 1,000 yards (currently at 986) next week against the Chargers, but Casey Hayward will make things difficult on Saturday night.
Tyreek Hill explodes against the Jets.
Hill had his best receiving game of the season in the Week 13 loss, catching six of nine targets for 185 yards and two touchdown, with two deep touchdowns including a long of 79 yards. The second-year receiver simply was simply too fast for the Jets on his long touchdowns, getting behind the defense as Alex Smith delivered deep strikes to him for six. Hill's next matchup is against an Oakland team that he had 125 yards and a long touchdown against in Week 7. Keep him in your fantasy lineup for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.
Tyreek Hill gets nine touches against the Bills.
Hill caught seven passes for 41 yards and had two carries for 13 yards in the Week 12 defeat. The second-year receiver is clearly a dynamic player, but perhaps the Chiefs would be better off if they had a more polished player as the number one target at wide receiver for Alex Smith. Hill remains a high-floor option against the Jets next week.
Tyreek Hill gets eight touches in Week 11
Hill caught all seven targets against the Giants, gaining 68 yards, and he also added a 16-yard carry on his only rushing attempt of the game. The big-time playmaker hasn't had a ton of huge games this season, but he's remained involved in the offense every week. Hill should remain in lineups next week as a high-upside play that also has a solid floor.
Tyreek Hill dazzles with 56-yard touchdown in loss to the Cowboys.
Hill rushed four times for nine yards and caught two passes for 64 yards, with the highlight being the final play of the first half where the Chiefs set up a play to get Hill the ball in space with players in front of him to block, and he danced through the Dallas defense into the end zone on one of the plays of the year. Besides that, the Cowboys did a great job of containing the electric playmaker, but Hill goes into the bye with an impressive 617 receiving yards and four touchdowns. He's a high-upside WR2 down the stretch.
Tyreek Hill throws interception against the Broncos.
You read that correctly. Hill lined up in the backfield early in the game and took a pass, but his natural lefty throw came up short—and he probably should've just thrown it away or only given his tight end Ross Travis could get it. Other than his pass attempt, Hill caught two of six targets for 38 yards against the Broncos. Through half a season as a the number one wide receiver for Kansas City, the second-year playmaker is on pace for 76 receptions, 1,106 receiving yards, six receiving touchdowns, 18 carries, 44 rushing yards, and two punt return touchdowns. Tonight wasn't ideal for fantasy owners, but look for him to bounce back against Dallas next week.
Tyreek Hill goes off against Oakland in Week 7.
The second-year receiver had a great all-around game and was a reliable target all over the field for Kansas City, catching six of eight passes for 125 yards and a touchdown while carrying twice for seven yards. The touchdown was a 64-yarder on a streak down the right sideline where he stretched to catch a pitch-perfect throw from Alex Smith. Hill has to face Denver's vaunted secondary in Week 8, but you shouldn't be too scared of the matchup—he had four total touchdowns against them in two games last season.
Tyreek Hill held in check as Chiefs fall to the Steelers.
Hill caught five passes for 34 yards in the 19-13 loss. He also rushed once for negative-nine yards. Pittsburgh is playing great defense so far this year, but the same can't be said for the Raiders—Hill's opponent on Thursday night. The dynamic playmaker should bounce back in primetime, and he should be in lineups as a WR2.
Tyreek Hill returns punt for a touchdown in Chiefs' win over the Texans.
Hill caught four of six targets for 68 yards, including a long of 38 yards on a great catch down the sideline where he tapped both feet in. The electric second-year playmaker also took a punt 82 yards to the house late in the game, giving those that played both Kansas City's D/ST and Hill a huge boost. Hill gets the Steelers next week and remains a good option in fantasy lineups.
Tyreek Hill catches five passes in Week 4.
Hill was limited by the Redskins as the Chiefs didn't take any deep shots to him, but he still make key plays for the Chiefs. Hill gained 35 yards on his five receptions (six targets) in the game. The second-year receiver is on pace for 84 receptions, 1,152 yards, and eight touchdowns.
Tyreek Hill catches 30-yard score in Week 3 win.
Hill caught five passes for 77 yards and the first-quarter touchdown, and also rushed three times for 13 yards. He was the only player to record more than 18 receiving yards, as Andy Reid continues to scheme him the ball. Hill will be in the WR2 conversation against the Redskins in Week 4 on Monday Night Football.
Tyreek Hill catches four passes in Week 2.
Hill was quieter against the Eagles than he was in the opener against the Patriots, but he still had 43 yards on his four receptions. Hill also had a six-yard rush that he might have taken to the house if he got a slightly bigger opening. There was a chance for Hill to adjust on a deep ball to the end zone from Alex Smith, but he couldn't quite adjust to the ball that was thrown slightly to the outside by Smith. The second-year receiver has a potentially difficult matchup next week against the Chargers, who have Jason Verrett (who was out Week 2 with knee soreness) and Casey Hayward, but the Chiefs will try to get him the ball.
Tyreek Hill goes over 100 yards in Week 1 win against the Patriots.
Hill and the Chiefs came out hot to kickoff the NFL season, as they had a superb offensive showing versus the defending champs. Hill had seven receptions for 133 yards and a touchdown, while adding five yards on a couple carries. The touchdown for the second-year receiver was a 75-yarder that Alex Smith put right on Hill when he got behind the defense. Kansas City is going to try and get their insanely fast receiver the ball this season, and it'll be no different next week against Philadelphia. The Eagles corners might have a ton of trouble containing Hill, who should be a top-ten option for Week 2.
Tyreek Hill struggles against Seattle in Week 3 of the preseason.
Hill had one reception for 11 yards, but he had a couple drops in the game, which hurt Alex Smith and the offense. The good news is he got open—he just needed to finish the plays by making the catch. This is not overly concerning, but it's a reminder that Hill is still a young player and might be inconsistent at times, despite being Kansas City's new number one wide receiver. Hill is currently being selected as a top 50 pick in most fantasy drafts.
Tyreek Hill gets a couple touches in Week 2 of the preseason.
Hill had one reception (on one target) for nine yards, adding an 11-yard run in the exhibition versus the Bengals. We'll see Hill and the Chiefs back out there in their dress rehearsal preseason game on Friday against the Seahawks on CBS.
Tyreek Hill catches long pass on first play of preseason game.
On the first play for the Chiefs against the 49ers, Alex Smith looked deep for Hill and hit him on a 32-yard pass. Smith admitted it might have been a touchdown if he threw the ball a little more inside. Hill is locked in as Kansas City's number one receiver, and he's one of the most polarizing players in fantasy heading into drafts—some believe he has major breakout potential, while others believe he can't be a top receiver.
BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com writes Tyreek Hill "has developed the nuances in his game needed to be an effective top-flight receiver in the NFL."
Kissel continues, "his ability to use his speed and quickness to set up defenders, while also using his body as an effective shield against defenders, are the finer details of what separates great athletes from great receivers." Hill and quarterback Alex Smith are reportedly connecting on a lot of deep balls throughout training camp, but Kissel says identifying Hill as only a speed guy is selling him short. The second-year receiver, currently going outside the top 20 receivers, is a solid target at his ADP.
Tyreek Hill isn't returning kicks this year.
According to Adam Teacher of ESPN, the Chiefs aren't putting the dynamic second-year receiver on returns because "it's part of the plan to free him for more work on offense." Hill had three touchdowns on returns last season, so that's a big element taken away from his individual game, though he'll look to make it up on offense. The Chiefs have De'Anthony Thomas and Demarcus Robinson to return punts and kicks, both who are also dynamic players, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Hill back there in big situations—like head coach Andy Reid did with Brian Westbrook at times with the Eagles.
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid says Tyreek Hill will get a chance to replace Jeremy Maclin as number one receiver.
Reid said Hill will get the opportunity to take the "Z" receiver role left by Maclin, which is typically the receiver that gets the most targets in Reid's offense. The Chiefs have made it very clear how high they are on Hill, with talks of his snaps doubling from his rookie season. Reid also said he expects everyone to chip in and help replace Maclin, including Chris Conley, Albert Wilson, and Demarcus Robinson. The dynamic Hill is likely to be the Chiefs' number one receiver, and he has pretty high upside. He's definitely worth a selection as a top 25 receiver in fantasy drafts.
At the NFL Combine, Andy Reid again said that Tyreek Hill can get a lot more playing time next season.
Hill is already looking like one of the best breakout picks for 2017 fantasy drafts. He made a huge impact on his limited touches during his rookie season, so the Chiefs are going to keep getting him more involved next season. Hill will likely get starter playing time if he isn't an official starter. He is someone that could easily reach 1,000 yards in his second year in the NFL.
Andy Reid hints at big bump in playing time for Tyreek Hill in 2017.
In an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio with Alex Marvel and Kirk Morrison, Reid said Hill was averaging 35 players per game in his rookie season and that "maybe he can double that or at least take it up a couple notches and allow him to get in more of a starting role." Hill's role kept growing in his rookie season, and he looks to take a big step forward next season. Hill could offer extremely high upside late in 2017 fantasy drafts.
Tyreek Hill doesn't do much with seven touches in Divisional Round loss.
Hill had three carries for 18 yards and four receptions for 27 yards. The Steelers did a good job of limiting Hill in the game. After a great rookie season, Hill will be a decent option towards the middle/end of 2017 fantasy drafts.
The electric Tyreek Hill does it again in Week 17.
Hill had three carries for 15 yards, five receptions for 46 yards, and a 95-yard punt return touchdown. Hill was a great pick for the Chiefs in the fifth round of the draft, and he had 12 touchdowns on the season. He had 61 receptions for 593 yards and six receiving touchdowns, 24 carries for 267 yards (11.1 YPC) and three rushing touchdowns, one kick return touchdown, and two punt return touchdowns. The dynamic rookie will give opposing coaches headaches while preparing for the Chiefs in the playoffs.
Tyreek Hill scores long rushing touchdown for second straight week.
Hill had six carries for 95 yards, including a 70-yard touchdown against the Broncos. The touchdown was on a play where Hill bounced it outside to the left and received great blocking from everyone on the play, including tight end Travis Kelce getting a key block down the field. Hill got down the sideline and the Broncos were not going to catch him. He didn't catch any of his five targets in the passing game, making it the second straight week without a catch, so Hill is a boom/bust WR2, but he's been all boom lately.
Tyreek Hill zooms for 68-yard touchdown in Week 15.
Hill lined up in the backfield and got the handoff from Alex Smith on a misdirection counter play. Hill got to the second level and from there no one was going to catch him. He also had three targets in the passing game, but didn't catch any. Hill will be a FLEX option against the Broncos next week. He scored three times against Denver in their first matchup.
Rookie Tyreek Hill scores twice, Chiefs take first place in AFC West.
Hill caught all six of his targets for 66 yards and a touchdown. He also returned a punt 78 yards for a touchdown. Hill has been a huge difference maker as a rookie both on special teams and on offense. The touchdown was a 36-yard deep ball on a perfect throw from Alex Smith when Hill got behind the defense in quarters coverage. Hill has gotten touches on a weekly basis and should continue to be a solid fantasy option. He'll be a very good FLEX option next week against the Titans.
Tyreek Hill caught five passes for 53 yards and rushed twice for 19 yards in the Chiefs' win over the Falcons.
Hill isn't a starter or full-time player for the Chiefs, but when he's on the field, Andy Reid gets finds ways to get him the ball. Even when Jeremy Maclin (groin) returns, which could be this Thursday night, Hill deserves consideration in fantasy lineups as a game-breaker. Maclin's return will hurt Albert Wilson and Chris Conley more than it will hurt Hill.
Tyreek Hill makes impact, history in Chiefs win.
Hill was the first rookie since Gale Sayers to have a rushing, receiving, and kick return touchdown in a game. He had nine catches for 52 yards and a touchdown, one carry for three yards and a touchdown, and a kick return touchdown on a free kick after a safety. Hill has been a great find for the Chiefs, and continues to make an impact for them. He won't be a reliable fantasy option, but he’s worth owning on your roster with Jeremy Maclin likely to return soon.
Tyreek Hill caught four passes for 53 yards and rushed once for eight yards in Sunday’s loss.
The biggest play of the day for the rookie was a 42-yard pass down the right sideline, but it would have been a touchdown if it wasn’t underthrown. Hill has been good in Jeremy Maclin’s absence, but there are probably better options for your fantasy lineup next week with the Chiefs heading to Denver on Sunday night.
Hill steps up, catches 10 passes with Maclin (going) out.
The rookie wide receiver caught 10 passes for 89 yards in the Chiefs' comeback victory over the Panthers. He also rushed once for 12 yards, and fumbled twice, but didn't lose either. Hill was the only effective option in the passing game against Carolina, and has earned more snaps with his play. He needs to take care of the ball, but Hill is an electric player in space. The rookie is a good pickup for people needing wide receiver help next week against Tampa Bay.
