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.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Fantasy Spin: Hill has been targeted at least eight times in four of the last five games and will continue to be one of the main options in the passing game for the Chiefs. He should be a starting option in all leagues this week.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill hauled in five of his eight targets for 55 yards and lost four yards on his only rushing attempt in Week 13 versus the Oakland Raiders.
Fantasy Spin: Although his final numbers are disappointing, it's important to keep in mind Patrick Mahomes threw for a career-low 175 yards and the Chiefs' passing attack was grounded in part due to windy conditions at Arrowhead Stadium. Unfortunately, he will have his hands full regardless of the weather in Week 14, as he is almost certain to face shadow coverage from Stephon Gilmore when the Chiefs visit the New England Patriots. Owners should consider him no more than a WR2 for that game.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill was projected to have a great game on paper in Week 13, but that didn't end up happening. Hill caught five of his eight targets for 55 yards in the victory over the Raiders. The Chiefs passing attack wasn't strong in this one, so fantasy owners shouldn't blame Hill. Sadly, Hill is heading into a matchup with Stephen Gilmore and the Patriots in Week 14. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect Hill to go over his projection in that one. He should be able to make some noise, but Gilmore will keep him in check.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is available for Sunday's Week 13 matchup with the Oakland Raiders. He was able to fully practice after missing most of the Week 11 contest against the Chargers. Luckily, the Chiefs had a bye week after that game, so Hill has been given plenty of time to rest up. Hill has been torching every defense since he returned from injury, so the Raiders are going to have a tough time covering him. Fantasy owners should consider Hill a high-end WR1 that should go over his projection on Sunday.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Fantasy Spin: Hill has posted at least 74 yards in five of his last six games and will continue to be the focal point in the passing game for the Chiefs. He should be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
Kansas City Chiefs RB Damien Williams (rib) was unable to practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Oakland Raiders. WR Sammy Watkins (illness) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Nov. 29, and has been removed from the injury report. DT Derrick Nnadi (elbow), TE Blake Bell (ankle), CB Kendall Fuller (thumb), WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring), S Jordan Lucas (shoulder), QB Patrick Mahomes (knee), DE Alex Okafor (ankle) and OT Mitchell Schwartz (knee) participated in full all week and no longer appear on the injury report.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill (hamstring) will be available for Week 13 against the Raiders after leaving early in the Week 11 win over the Chargers. Luckily for Hill and his fantasy owners, he had the Week 12 bye to heal up. The speedster missed the first meeting with the Raiders earlier this year because of a broken collarbone, but he'll return for this one and will be quarterback Patrick Mahomes' top option through the air against a secondary that can easily be dominated by this KC offense. Hill needs to be re-inserted into all starting lineups as a WR1.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 28.
Fantasy Spin: Hill was held off the stat sheet last week but did post back-to-back 100-yard games in the previous two games. He is still one of the top receivers in the NFL and is a must-start option when healthy.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill (hamstring) will return to practice on Wednesday. Hill was injured early in the Week 11 win over the Chargers, but he had the Week 12 bye to heal up and it looks like he'll return to face the Raiders in Week 13. A home run threat every time he touches the ball in this high-flying offense, Hill is a must-start in fantasy if he's active. Against an Oakland secondary that is very vulnerable, he could put up big numbers for his owners this Sunday.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) will be a full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 27.
Fantasy Spin: Rest your worries, and slide your WR1 in the lineup for Week 13.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill's (hamstring) injury was deemed minor after he underwent an MRI exam, according to a source. Hill is being considered day-to-day, and there's a real chance he won't miss any time with the team's bye in Week 12. He tried to go back into the Monday night game against the Chargers. Hill was held catchless on his two targets before leaving the game and not returning, so it was a blow to his fantasy owners. The good news is that Hill should be back in Week 13 in the final week before the fantasy playoffs begin in most leagues. As long as he's on the field, Hill will be a must-start.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) suffered a minor hamstring strain, and he's considered day to day.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) will have an MRI on his hamstring in the next day or so, and there will be a better timetable after that.
Fantasy Spin: The Chiefs are on a bye in Week 12, and it's possible that he could avoid missing time. However, hamstrings are usually multiple-week issues.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill (hamstring) will undergo an MRI exam on his hamstring in the next day or so, according to a source. At that point they'll have a better idea for a timeline. Hill missed both of his targets on Monday night against the Chargers before leaving the game and never returning, so it was a tough pill to swallow for his fantasy owners. The good news is that the Chiefs are on their bye in Week 12, so Hill may not end up missing any games as long as his MRI yields positive results. If he's forced to miss time, Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson would once again be attractive flexes in deeper leagues behind Travis Kelce and Sammy Watkins.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill (hamstring) left the Monday night game against the Chargers in the first quarter and is questionable to return. Hill was targeted twice but didn't have a single catch before he left the game. Obviously Hill's injury and potential donut for fantasy owners could be crippling, but his owners will just be hoping that he won't miss additional time. If he does, it would boost the values of tight end Travis Kelce and wideout Sammy Watkins considerably. Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson would also become attractive again as flex plays. Stay tuned for more specifics on Hill's injury.

Fantasy owners can count on Hill as a reliable WR1 and he should surpass his projection on Monday night.
Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill caught 11 of his 19 targets for 157 yards and a touchdown in a 35-32 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 10.
Fantasy Spin: It was a season high for Hill in catches, targets and yards, and with Patrick Mahomes back under center, there is no reason to expect him to slow down.
