Hill had 12 carries for 60 yards and added five catches for 20 yards in 12 games this season. Hill's already-minimal role evaporated in his second season as he dropped from 58 carries for 225 yards and two scores as a rookie to 12 carries for 60 yards in 2020. His snaps dropped from 193 to 73 as well. Rookie J.K. Dobbins has cemented himself as the primary ball carrier for Baltimore, and the combo of Gus Edwards and quarterback Lamar Jackson take up most of the other carries. Even if Mark Ingram is gone next season, Hill doesn't appear to have a path to playing time in Baltimore entering his third year with the team.
Hill did not receive any rush attempts or targets during Sunday's 27-13 win against the Giants. Hill garnered 14 of his 17 snaps on special teams during Baltimore's Week 16 win. The 23-year-old cost his team by being given a roughing the kicker penalty early in the fourth quarter, allowing New York to extend a drive that would culminate in the Giants' only touchdown of the contest. Hill has more game appearances (11) than he does carries (10) as Baltimore heads into an all-too-familiar Week 17 matchup against the Bengals.
Hill reeled in his only target for eight yards during Sunday's 40-14 win against the Jaguars. The second-year back from Oklahoma State registered his fourth catch in as many outings during Baltimore's Week 15 rout, though he remains uninvolved in the ground game. J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards combined for 106 rushing yards and a TD on 23 RB carries, while Hill went without a rush attempt for the eighth time over 10 appearances this season. Hill is expected to continue contributing as a depth option Week 16 when Baltimore hosts the Giants' No. 6 rush defense.
Hill had a four-yard reception on one target Tuesday against Dallas. Baltimore getting both J.K. Dobbins and Mark Ingram back in the mix had a direct impact on Hill's playing time as he saw just six offensive snaps. The role Hill saw against the Cowboys was in line with how he has been used for every game outside of the Pittsburgh matchup in Week 12, which was his only outing with double-digit snaps on offense. Hill will remain an ancillary part of the Ravens' ground game as long as Dobbins, Ingram, and Gus Edwards are healthy and available.
Hill is active alongside running backs J.K. Dobbins, Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards for Tuesday's game versus Dallas. Hill saw double-digit offensive snaps for the first time in 2020 last week against Pittsburgh and had 11 touches for 40 yards, but he should return to a minor offensive role with Ingram and Dobbins off the COVID-19 list. Hill had only one touch in six games during 2020 before working as the change-of-pace option behind Edwards in Week 12.
