Hill took his game to another level last year, finishing second overall in fantasy receiver scoring. Having Patrick Mahomes as his starting quarterback from day one was a huge plus for Hill. He has more than 1,600 total yards and 13 touchdowns on the season. He also caught 87 passes, having 12 more than the previous season. Hill had double-digit fantasy points all but three games. He had six 100-yard games and at least four receptions 13 of 16 games. He has two straight 1,000-yard seasons. He will continue to be the top receiver in the Chiefs explosive offense. Hill is a speed burner that can make all sorts of plays in the open field. He is small and lacks strength, but that hasn't slowed him down one bit since entering the league. Hill catches the ball well and is an improving route runner. He also can make big plays in the running game, having 150-plus rushing yards two of three seasons.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Hill is a top-five fantasy receiver. He is capable of the huge game any given week. He can carry a fantasy team to victory all by himself. He might have a hard time improving much on last year but should post similar numbers. He can get around 90 receptions for 1,500 yards, 150-rushing yards and double-digit scores. Hill was facing a suspension but was cleared by the NFL in July and will not face discipline for an off the field incident.
I miss the good old days of fantasy football where all we had to consider was how each player would perform in the coming season. It seems like every year now we have an elite fantasy asset in trouble with the law and at risk of a suspension. Between Julian Edelman, Ezekiel Elliott, Tom Brady, Le'Veon Bell, and, of course, Josh Gordon, the issue of what to do with a player guaranteed to not play 16 games has hovered over fantasy drafts. As of the time I am writing this, Tyreek Hill is not suspended, but everyone is expecting it. At this point, the prevailing question is whether Hill gets a handful of games or a full season. There's really no need to discuss Hill's value when on the field. If he's playing 16 games, he's a top five fantasy receiver, worthy of going around that 1-2 turn. The question isn't even what to do with him now - it's what to do with him if we get into August and then the preseason and he hasn't been suspended. A suspension would make things easier because at least we would know what we're getting. We're flying blind right now, trying to speculate what a completely arbitrary arbiter of justice, Roger Goodell, will do. The closer we get to September without a ruling, the more likely it is Hill plays in 2019. Look no further than 2018 LeSean McCoy as evidence. As of now, I wouldn't take Hill until I was no longer confident in the production of the alternatives. Fifth round is the earliest I'd consider him and only if I really didn't like anyone else. As we get closer to draft season, his ADP will steadily rise. If we get a formal suspension before then, I will be sure to update this with advice on how to proceed.

'We have the trust in Tyreek and we're going to go forward in a positive way.'
Fantasy Spin: With the NFL announcing Hill won't be suspended, all systems are a go for one of the top receivers in fantasy. Hill's average draft position has soared nearly a full round over the last week, but a second-round price tag in standard formats may be too much to pay.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill could be traded early next season if a contract extension can't be worked out, according to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com.
Fantasy Spin: Hill should be headed for another year of WR1 production as one of the main weapons in Kansas City's high-powered offense, but his ceiling could change dramatically if he switches teams. The trade talk is just speculation for now, but it is one more reason to try to acquire Mecole Hardman in keeper formats.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill could be on his way out of KC, according to Mike Florio. Hill has been cleared of his suspension, but the team is not close to an extension with Hill. The Chiefs have some depth at wide receiver, so losing Hill would not be the end of the world. There's a possibility of a tag-and-trade next offseason, but Hill will likely remain in Kansas City this upcoming season. The two sides may continue to talk extension, but it doesn't sound like either side is close at all.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill issued his own statement Friday, July 19, after the league announced he will not be subject to a disciplinary suspension or fine at this time.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you all. I can assure you that I will continue to work to be the person, player, and teammate that you envisioned me to be.'
Fantasy Spin: Surprising as it may be, Hill returns to WR1 consideration in fantasy until further notice.
The NFL will not suspend Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill for violating the league's player-conduct policy. Hill was under investigation for an incident in which his son's arm was broken. With Hill cleared to be on the field, the Chiefs wideout is once again on track to be one of the league's top receivers thanks to his speed and the prolific passing of quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Hill's a second-round fantasy pick at worst now, and will be a huge value for fantasy owners who drafted early and took him at his lower offseason ADP.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is unlikely to resume contract talks for several weeks or months with the team.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill will not be suspended by the NFL as the league found that he did not violate the personal conduct policy. He will be able to attend training camp and participate in all team activities.
Fantasy Spin: The news has a big impact on the fantasy landscape as Hill immediately returns to WR1 status with the cloud clearing over him. Hill had an 87-1,479-12 breakout last season, and talks on a long-term deal could also rekindle.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill led all receivers with an 11.47 yards per target average in 2018, according to Pro Football Focus. Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans ranked second at 11.29, while Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton and Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks tied for third at 10.95. Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones rounded out the top five at 10.10.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill recently met with the NFL to discuss his child abuse case, and Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports that some around the Chiefs are anticipating a four-game suspension for Hill. He's expected to join the team for training camp, but if the Chiefs are without Hill for the season's first four games, they'll need wide receivers Sammy Watkins and rookie Mecole Hardman to step up. Watkins would open the year with the biggest chance to put up strong numbers on a dynamic Chiefs offense.
Updating previous reports, Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's meeting with NFL officials was considered a positive one by Hill's camp. Hill and the Chiefs could re-engage in contract extension negotiations if the investigation into Hill ends with a positive outcome, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Hill is a very big risk, not only because of the potential of a suspension, but because of the cloud of distraction that has to be hovering over him. It's possible he could be out for the first eight games and return for the fantasy stretch drive with rust. Are you comfortable investing anything more than a WR3 in that? If you land three other starters, and you can afford to chance it, go for it.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill met with NFL investigators Wednesday, June 26, regarding his off-field issues, but there is no timetable for any possible punishment for Hill, according to sources.
Fantasy Spin: The NFL likely will make a decision on possible punishment for Hill before training camp, so fantasy players should monitor the situation. Hill is one of the better receivers in the NFL and can be a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues but is risky because of a possible suspension.
