The staff members at Footballguys are full of opinions. In a Faceoff, we allow two members to voice their opinions on a specific player. One picked the high side, and the other took the low side.
High Side: Justin Howe
The fantasy community doesn’t have a lot of confidence in Hill. I know without having yet read his section that Ryan Hester doesn’t. And I don’t really, either – but how rational am I being? His profile doesn’t match what we want when we’re targeting a top-24 wideout: he’s small (185 pounds), his offense is slow and run-oriented (only 7 teams got off fewer passes last year), and he depends on kick returns for a chunk of his value (rarely a fun situation). But his rookie production was truly great – maybe so great we shouldn’t brush it off. He was explosive, which was no surprise, but he was also mega-efficient. And his path to fantasy-WR2 volume is pretty well cemented, so we may not see the regression we’re all bracing for.
