2019 Fantasy Outlook
Signed as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane in May 2018, Hilliard failed to make the 53-man roster out of camp and eventually ended up on Cleveland's practice squad. He was promoted in early-October and appeared in 11 games, catching nine passes for 105 yards out of the backfield. With Kareem Hunt suspended the first eight games, Hilliard has a prime chance to carve out a change-of-pace role behind Nick Chubb, now that Duke Johnson has been traded to Houston.

Notches two receptions

October 15, 2019
Hilliard caught two of three targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 32-28 loss to Seattle. He added 102 yards on two kick returns.
ANALYSIS
Hilliard nearly took the opening kickoff to the house Sunday, breaking off a 74-yard return. He wasn't quite as dynamic on offense, where he has just one game of at least 20 total yards. Hilliard has two touchdowns in just 12 touches but is playing behind a bell cow back in Nick Chubb with Kareem Hunt (suspension) set to enter the fold after just two more games. In the meantime, Hilliard and the Browns take on the league's second-ranked defense, the Patriots, in Week 8 following the bye.
