Player Outlook
Hill is expected to open the season as the No. 2 running back in Baltimore behind Derrick Henry, and Hill could be worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues. Just keep in mind that at some point Keaton Mitchell (knee) could eventually take over the backup job for the Ravens when he's recovered from last year's torn ACL. However, if Henry stays healthy all season, he likely will make the No. 2 job in Baltimore irrelevant. That being said, an injury to Henry could make Hill a lottery ticket, especially if Mitchell remains sidelined. In 2023, Hill averaged 6.8 PPR points per game playing behind Gus Edwards for the majority of the season, and Hill had just three games with at least 12.5 PPR points or more. He could lead all Ravens running backs in receptions this year, but that might only be around 30 catches in this offense.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Joined by No. 1 option in backfield

    Hill will likely handle a secondary role in the Baltimore backfield in 2024 after Derrick Henry agreed to a two-year contract with the Ravens on Tuesday, Brian Wacker of the Baltimore Sun reports. Though they allowed Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) to reach free agency, the Ravens moved quickly to add a true No. 1 running back in Henry, whose size and power will complement Lamar Jackson's elusiveness. After Dobbins went down with a season-ending injury Week 1, Hill stepped into an elevated role out of the backfield and finished with career highs in carries (84) and rushing yards (387) while scoring three times on the ground. The addition of Henry will make it tough for Hill to replicate that rushing workload, though his pass-catching skills should make him the Ravens' clear top option on passing downs, at least until Keaton Mitchell (knee) completes his recovery from the torn ACL he suffered in December.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Enjoys career year in 2023

    Hill finished the 2023 regular season with career highs for carries (84), rushing yards (387), rushing touchdowns (three), catches (28), receiving yards (206) and receiving touchdowns (one). Hill was Baltimore's running back of choice for obvious passing situations for most of the season, though rookie Keaton Mitchell (knee) took some of that work away from early November to mid-December before suffering an ACL tear. The fifth-year back also ended up with a larger-than-expected role in the rushing game, especially early in the season after J.K. Dobbins suffered a torn Achilles' tendon Week 1. The two-year, $4.5 million contract Hill signed in March ended up working out well for the Ravens, as he played nearly as many snaps on offense (436) as in his first four NFL seasons combined (554). Hill could play more on special teams and less on offense in 2024, though that's far from a certainty with both Dobbins and Gus Edwards scheduled for unrestricted free agency. Hill is due for a non-guaranteed $2 million base salary and $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses for the second and final season of his contract.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Strong performance in playoff win

    Hill rushed the ball 13 times for 66 yards in Saturday's 34-10 win over the Texans. He also had two receptions on two targets for 11 yards. Hill led the Ravens' backfield while matching his highest carry total of the season and recording his highest yardage total of the campaign. He was particularly effective running out the clock late in the game, as he accounted for 42 yards in the final quarter. Hill also remained involved as a pass catcher and has commanded multiple targets in five of his last six contests. He should split work with Gus Edwards once again in the AFC Championship Game while squaring off with either the Chiefs or Bills, though it's worth noting that newcomer Dalvin Cook saw eight carries Saturday. Also, Edwards appeared to leave the game due to some issue in the fourth quarter.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Paces team in targets

    Hill caught three of 10 targets for 26 yards in Saturday's loss to the Steelers. Hill did not factor into the carry rotation Saturday but did lead the team in targets in what was an anomalous game for the Ravens with Tyler Huntley at quarterback. In Weeks 16 and 17, Hill commanded a 22 percent rushing share in the wake of Keaton Mitchell's season-ending injury. Hill has been active in the passing game throughout the season and that should continue when the Ravens return to action in the divisional round, but his rushing usage has been sporadic all year as well. Gus Edwards projects to be first in line for carries during the postseason but Hill can still be a fantasy factor with a small rushing workload to go with his passing game role.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Stellar all-around day Sunday

    Hill rushed three times for 48 yards and secured all five targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 56-19 win over the Dolphins on Sunday. He also returned two kickoffs for 101 yards. Hill was highly efficient overall while providing a 20-yard touchdown grab in the first quarter to erase an early 7-0 deficit and ignite the Ravens' offense on what would be a prolific afternoon. The versatile veteran was explosive as both a rusher and returner as well, but he could take a seat in Week 18 against the Steelers with the Ravens now in possession of the AFC's top seed.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Week 17 Waiver Priority List

    In the first game without Keaton Mitchell (knee) in Week 16 at San Francisco, Hill had 10 carries for 26 yards and three catches for 31 yards on three targets. He had more total touches than Gus Edwards (nine carries and one catch), but Edwards will continue to work at the goal line and have more upside. The Ravens have a tough matchup in Week 17 against Miami, so Hill is just a desperation flex, but he should have the chance for double digits in touches again in tandem with Edwards.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Earns 13 touches

    Hill rushed the ball 10 times for 26 yards in Monday's 33-19 win over the 49ers. He added three receptions (on three targets) for 31 yards. Hill led the Baltimore backfield with 13 touches but managed only 57 total yards. He was extremely inefficient on the ground, averaging only 2.6 yards per attempt with his longest rush going for six yards. His work as a pass catcher was more noteworthy, as he tallied his highest target count since Week 8. Gus Edwards will almost certainly maintain the goal-line role moving forward, meaning Hill will have to rack up yards and receptions to be fantasy-relevant for the final two weeks of the regular season.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Week 16 Waiver Priority List

    Keaton Mitchell (ACL) is out for the season, and Hill will now see more touches in tandem with Gus Edwards to close the year. The Ravens don't have an easy schedule (at SF in Week 16 and vs. Miami in Week 17), but Hill has the potential to be a flex option if Baltimore uses him as a change of pace option to Edwards. In the first nine weeks of the season, which is when Mitchell was either on IR or had a minimal role, Hill averaged 7.3 carries for 31.4 yards to go with 1.9 receptions for 8.4 yards. And Hill would be a borderline starter in all leagues if Edwards were forced to miss any time.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: One catch on 30 snaps

    Hill recorded a 12-yard reception on two targets and didn't log any carries while playing 30 snaps on offense in Sunday's 37-31 overtime win over the Rams. Though the touches were minimal for Hill, he was on the field plenty Sunday. Baltimore clearly finds value in his versatility in terms of pass catching, change-of-pace running and pass blocking, much to the chagrin of fantasy managers invested in Gus Edwards or Keaton Mitchell. In fact, Hill actually led all Ravens running backs in snap count against the Rams even though both Mitchell and Edwards had more fantasy usage. Hill has just one game since the season opener with double-digit carries, and that's unlikely to change with Mitchell and Edwards healthy. Do not mistake Hill's consistent snap count for fantasy upside.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Effective in limited role

    Hill carried five times for 31 yards in Sunday's 20-10 win over the Chargers. Hill's role remains diminished with Keaton Mitchell's ascent in the offense as the veteran played just 29 percent of the snaps Sunday. He has not played more than 30 percent of the snaps since Week 9 against the Seahawks. Hill was effective on a per-carry basis against the Chargers, but there appears to be a cap on his weekly volume projection with Mitchell, Gus Edwards and Lamar Jackson taking on the bulk of the backfield work. The Ravens are on a bye Week 13 before returning to action Sunday, Dec. 10 against the Rams.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Role diminishing in offense

    Hill had one carry for one yard and one catch for six yards on 13 snaps Thursday against the Bengals. As many expected with Keaton Mitchell's emergence, Hill's role in the offense is taking a significant cut. Hill has played 13 snaps in each of the last two games, with four combined touches. Mitchell and Gus Edwards appear to be Baltimore's primary backs going forward, leaving Hill to play a reserve role and special teams.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Handles two carries in loss

    Hill rushed two times for seven yards and wasn't targeted in Sunday's 33-31 loss to the Browns. Hill played just 14 of the Ravens' 54 offensive snaps Sunday, while Gus Edwards played 28 snaps and rookie Keaton Mitchell played 13 snaps in the contest. The veteran's two rushing attempts and seven yards were his lowest in both categories for the season, while Mitchell continued to show that he should earn more playing time as an explosive playmaker. Going forward, Hill could continue to cede snaps and touches to the rookie, further limiting his potential for consistent production. The 26-year-old will be difficult to trust for fantasy purposes when the Ravens host the Bengals in Week 11.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: High snap count, low production Sunday

    Hill had 13 carries for 40 yards in Sunday's win over the Seahawks and did not catch his lone target. While Hill led the Ravens in carries and played the most snaps among running backs, he finished fourth on the team in rushing yardage. Gus Edwards was strong on a per-play basis, rushing for 52 yards and two touchdowns on five carries. However, it was rookie Keaton Mitchell who stole the show and may post the biggest threat to Hill's role going forward. Mitchell took nine carries for 138 yards and a touchdown in his first significant workload of the season. Hill has been solid to this point with a 4.3 YPC average and 15 catches on 16 targets, but Mitchell's emergence Sunday could alter the Ravens' backfield calculus down the stretch. Baltimore hosts a tough Cleveland defense in Week 10.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Sleeper RBs

    Gus Edwards is worth using as a No. 2 Fantasy running back in Week 9 against Seattle, but this won't be an easy matchup. It's tough to run on the Seahawks, so we could see Hill more involved in the passing game. He just had four catches for 40 yards on four targets in Week 8 against Arizona, and four running backs have at least four receptions against Seattle this season. I like Hill as a flex option in PPR.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Week 9 Adds (RB Preview)

    Gus Edwards is getting a lot more carries than Hill, but Hill is still the better pass catcher and it is much easier to catch passes as a running back against Seattle than it is to run. They surrender a league-best 3.13 yards per carry to running backs but they give up more than 8.5 PPR FPPG to the position through the air.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Ties for team receiving lead

    Hill rushed four times for 15 yards and caught all four of his targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 31-21 win over Arizona. Hill watched Gus Edwards rumble for three touchdowns but contributed out of the backfield in passing situations, tying Mark Andrews for the team lead in receiving yards as Lamar Jackson threw for only 157 yards. Hill has topped 30 scrimmage yards in each of his last six games played, and he set a new season high in that category here, topping his Week 2 total by two yards.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Week 7 Adds (RB Preview)

    The Lions have arguably the best run defenses in football, so it's hard to trust any Ravens running back this week. Hill has the advantage of three-to-four catch upside and he's been the more efficient Ravens' runner this season. He's the closest thing to a good option there is left at running back this late in the week.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Held in check in Week 6 win

    Hill carried the ball eight times for 35 yards and caught all three of his targets for zero yards in Sunday's 24-16 win over the Titans. Hill's 4.4 yards per carry was significantly better than Gus Edwards' 2.6 YPC, but the latter still saw more touches on the day with 17, including a 16-8 advantage in carries. The Ravens' backfield timeshare will make it difficult for either RB to make a big fantasy impact, especially in a Week 7 tilt against a Lions defense that's given up only two total touchdowns to the position through five games.

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Sneaky Sleeper in PPR (Lineup Decisions)

    It's a little gutsy to go with Hill, who has been inefficient for much of the year. We're counting on the Ravens outsmarting the big size of the Titans defensive line and utilizing Hill for his speed along the edges and in the passing game. His high-value touch share is the icing on the cake and hopefully can lead to him scoring just over 12 PPR points for the second week in a row. I'd take my chances with him over low-upside running backs like Gus Edwards, Antonio Gibson and Jonathan Taylor (for now he's low-upside).

  • Ravens' Justice Hill: Week 6 Adds (RB Preview)

    I don't want to start either Ravens back against the Titans run defense. But if I had to choose one, it would be the guy who works in the passing game and has scored three touchdowns in four games. Hill is a decent flex this week in full PPR.
