Hill caught one of three targets for 42 yards during Sunday's 37-31 AFC Championship Game overtime loss to the Patriots. Hill faced waves of coverage, as New England did its best to take him out of the game. He did break free for a long gain, but he didn't impact the box score otherwise. Although Hill fared better in his prior outing, his nine catches for 114 yards through two postseason games is a bit disappointing, especially considering the 1,479 yards and 12 touchdowns he posted during the regular season. Still, the speedster established himself as an elite fantasy asset this season and will head into the 2019 campaign as one of the top options at his position.
Hill had five catches (seven targets) for 101 yards and a touchdown, adding 15 yards and another score on his lone carry in Sunday's 35-3 win over the Raiders. Hill joined quarterback Patrick Mahomes in reaching a single-season milestone Sunday. The speedy wideout's 1,479 receiving yards set a new single-season record for the Chiefs. Mahomes' ability to fire the deep ball -- as he did on Hill's 67-yard touchdown -- has made the 24-year-old a weekly threat to hit a home run, as opposed to just hoping from a big run after a short catch when Alex Smith was under center. Hill, along with the rest of the Chiefs, will rest for the wild-card round and return to action in two weeks to host the lowest remaining seed in the divisional series.
Hill caught four of his nine targets for 74 yards in Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Seahawks. He also added two carries for 17 yards. Hill was quiet early on, recording only 17 rushing yards and one catch for 15 yards in the first half. He did come on in a bit in the second half, which was highlighted by a 32-yard reception. However, there was cause for concern when he remained on the ground after the play with an apparent ankle injury. Though he re-entered the game, he was targeted only once afterwards and was not able to record a reception. With the Chiefs still fighting for the AFC West title, Hill will certainly be on the field for the regular-season finale so long as his health allows, although his elite speed could be limited by the injury.
Hill (heel/wrist) is listed as active for Thursday night's game against the Chargers, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. Hill was limited in practice Tuesday and Wednesday after toughing things out through a pair of injury issues in this past Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over the Ravens. He'll continue to do so Thursday and should remain a focal point in the Kansas City offense in Week 15, assuming no in-game setbacks.
Hill (heel/wrist) is expected to play in Thursday's game against the Chargers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Hill is listed as questionable on the final injury report, but there isn't much doubt surrounding his status after the Chiefs listed him as a limited practice participant both Tuesday and Wednesday. It's quite possible he plays through considerable pain during the contest, as was the case during Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over Baltimore. Of course, Hill still managed to catch eight of 14 targets for 139 yards in the victory. He'll now face a Chargers defense that he burned for seven catches for 169 yards and two scores back in Week 1.
