Hill caught seven of 11 targets for 87 yards and added a 14-yard carry in Saturday's 22-21, wild-card round loss to the Titans. Hill had a couple of glaring drops in the first half, but it didn't look like they would matter as the hosts raced out to a 21-3 lead. Tennessee was able to focus on taking Hill away after tight end Travis Kelce exited with a concussion in the second quarter, however, and the speedster failed to make much of an impact when the struggling Kansas City offense needed him most after falling behind late. Hill remains one of the league's most explosive players and should hold plenty of value next year regardless of who starts under center.
Hill (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt against the Broncos. The designation is a mere formality, as Hill's expected status had been announced Friday. The speedster's absence Sunday will afford Albert Wilson No. 1 receiver duty, while the likes of Demarcus Robinson, Jehu Chesson and De'Anthony Thomas will help round out the receiving corps for rookie signal caller Patrick Mahomes in his first NFL start.
Hill (not injury-related) won't play Sunday against the Broncos, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. The Chiefs are locked into the AFC's fourth playoff seed, so Hill, as well as QB Alex Smith -- among others likely -- will not play in Week 17. As a result, look for the likes of Demarcus Robinson, Jehu Chesson and De'Anthony Thomas to see added wideout reps in Week 17. They'll be catching passes from rookie QB Patrick Mahomes.
Hill brought in six of seven targets for 109 yards and netted minus-one yard on his sole rush in Sunday's 29-13 win over the Dolphins. He also gained one yard on his only punt return. Hill wasn't able to get into the end zone, but his reception and yardage totals both paced the Chiefs, and he was able to make multiple catches downfield. The second-year speedster also eclipsed the century mark through the air for the second time in the last four games, and his total haul helped push his career-high receiving yardage total to 1,183. Hill will look to finish the regular season with a flourish and help Kansas City's playoff positioning against the Broncos in Week 17.
Hill caught five of six targets for 88 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 30-13 win over the Chargers. Most of Hill's receptions on the day were of the short variety, but an explosive 64-yard catch and run in the second quarter afforded him plenty of fantasy utility. This productive outing was significant for Hill, who has now set new career highs in catches and touchdowns while going over 1,000 receiving yards for the first time. Though he still relies on big plays for gaudy fantasy numbers, Hill has become a much more steady contributor on offense in his second NFL season and will look to continue as such next week against the Dolphins.
