2019 Fantasy Outlook
On the field, Hill's 2018 production was superstar level - 10.8 YPT (2nd), eight catches of 40-plus yards (1st), 17.0 YPC (2nd) and 12 touchdowns (4th) on 137 targets (11th). Undersized at 5-10, 185, Hill is arguably the fastest player in the NFL and its most dangerous in open space (he ran a 4.24 40 at his pro day). Hill dropped nine passes, but some of those were from long range - his average depth of target was 14.8 yards (3rd). And despite his diminutive stature, he saw plenty of work in the red zone - 16 targets from inside the 20, seven inside the 10 and four inside the five. When you're getting the easy ones from in close and can also strike from long range like no one else in the league, the result is double-digit scores. Hill also has NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes under center in Kansas City and Andy Reid designing the offense. All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce, who often lines up in the slot and runs short and intermediate routes, is Hill's perfect complement. As training camp approached, the NFL concluded that an investigation into off-field allegations regarding Hill didn't provide enough evidence to conclude that the wide receiver violated the league's personal conduct policy. He's now eligible to participate in all team activities, including regular-season games. Read Past Outlooks

Scores two TDs in return
WRKansas City Chiefs
October 13, 2019
Hill caught five of 10 targets for 80 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Texans.
ANALYSIS
Returning from a five-week absence, Hill quelled any concerns about his health with a beautiful leaping catch which he turned into a 46-yard touchdown early in the first quarter. He led the team in targets, catches and receiving yardage as well, later adding a six-yard touchdown grab that briefly put his team ahead. Barring any setbacks, Hill appears to be fully ready to contribute in Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
People were puzzled when the Chiefs released their No. 1 outside receiver Jeremy Maclin last year. Now we know why. Despite playing with a QB known more for avoiding errors than generating big plays down the field, Hill led the NFL with nine catches of 40-plus yards on only 105 total targets (T-29th). Not surprisingly, he also led the league with 11.3 YPT and was sixth with 15.8 YPC. At 5-10, 185, Hill is small but lightning quick, as dangerous as any player in the league in open space, and reportedly ran a blistering 4.24 40 at his college pro day, i.e., he's arguably the fastest player in the NFL. The downside for Hill is his lack of red-zone work - only four of his targets came from that area, so he has to do his damage from distance. While he managed seven TDs on a modest target total, there's far more variance when you're reliant on 40-yard TDs than when you post up at the goal line for short tosses. Accordingly, unless the Chiefs target him more from in close - something that's unlikely, given the presence of elite TE Travis Kelce and other bigger receivers like newly signed Sammy Watkins - Hill could range anywhere from four to 10 scores in 2018, the same way DeSean Jackson has during his career. Hill might see a slight boost to his stats as a gadget-play rusher, though last year (17 carries for 59 yards) he was far less successful in that role than in 2016 (24-267-3). Of course, the biggest wild card for Hill is the loss of QB Alex Smith, who despite his reputation for caution took advantage of Hill's skills. Second-year man Pat Mahomes is less polished, but he'll buy extra time with his athleticism, and he has a cannon for an arm, making Hill a good bet to lead the league in big plays again in 2018. Just don't expect a spike in volume, as Watkins will almost certainly see more targets than the departed Albert Wilson.
The cautionary comp here is Cordarrelle Patterson, a dynamic, versatile rookie that turned out to be everything except a competent wide receiver. Apparently, coach Andy Reid isn't concerned -- this spring he said he'd like to get Hill more targets, and why not? Hill scored 12 times despite totaling only 107 touches from scrimmage last season, and while almost all of his pass-catching opportunities came on short throws, he impressively hauled in 61 of his 83 targets (73 percent, 6th). Hill also had 24 carries for 267 yards and three touchdowns, with another trio of scores as a return man. At 5-10, 185, Hill is small but reportedly ran a 4.24 40 at his Pro Day, and he's as quick as anyone in the league. The Chiefs apparently have high hopes for the second-year speedster, who likely will take over as the team's No. 1 wide receiver after Jeremy Maclin was cut in June. TE Travis Kelce could be the primary pass catcher, and fellow wideout Chris Conley also figures to benefit, but Maclin's release still speaks volumes about Kansas City's confidence in Hill. And while his size might serve to limit his red-zone opportunities, Hill did draw 15 targets in the area last season, though he converted only three into touchdowns. The only downside is that his role on special teams likely will be scaled back.
Character issues led to a big drop in the NFL Draft but Hill ran a blazing self-reported 4.24 40-yard dash at his Pro Day and has impressed early in camp. The rookie was listed as the team’s top punt returner on the initial depth chart release, but seems unlikely to see consistent playing time on offense this season.
