  Falcons | Brian Hill held in check    Sun Nov 17, 04:22 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Brian Hill rushed for 30 yards on 15 carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 11. He also caught one pass for eight yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Hill had one score vultured by Qadree Ollison and another wiped off of the board by a penalty, but he still wasn't effective against a Panthers run defense that had been giving up a lot on the ground. He should start next week against a stiff Bucs run defense.

  Falcons | Brian Hill reaches end zone    Sun Nov 10, 04:34 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Brian Hill rushed for 61 yards on 20 carries against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. He also caught one pass for 10 yards and one touchdown during the game.

Footballguys view: Hill joined the trend of Falcons running backs having a better chance to score as a receiver, and he ran against defenses that were keyed up for rushing plays as the Falcons nursed a lead. He should be one of the most coveted waiver wire additions of Week 11.

  Falcons | Brian Hill runs well in loss    Thu Aug 1, 11:31 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Brian Hill rushed for a game-high 57 yards on 11 carries and caught a touchdown in a 14-10 preseason loss to the Denver Broncos Thursday, Aug. 1.

Footballguys view: Hill might be threatening Ito Smith for the backup job in time, but him getting significant work in this game probably means Smith is well ahead for now. There isn't a clear handcuff to Devonta Freeman, as the Falcons would employ a committee if Freeman misses time.

  Falcons | Atlanta to rotate RBs behind Devonta Freeman    Mon Jul 22, 02:44 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is the unquestioned starting running back, but the team may ultimately decide to use Ito Smith, Brian Hill and Qadree Ollison to replace Tevin Coleman, who left for the San Francisco 49ers in free agency this spring.'It's a position that has good talent for us. And now to be talented as a group, it may be a combination of those roles and featuring what those guys can do best. ... That's deeper than we've been at that position for a while, and I'm looking forward to the unique stuff that the guys do have,' head coach Dan Quinn said.

Footballguys view: If Freeman can't stay healthy, the team is likely to employ a committee to replace him, so there's no clear handcuff here. Ollison vs Hill is a good battle to watch, as the winner should get the bulk of early down work if Freeman goes down.

  Falcons | Brian Hill promoted    Tue Sep 11, 05:26 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Brian Hill was signed to the active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 11. Free-agent WR Julian Williams (Falcons) was re-signed to the practice squad, while DT Jacob Tuioti-Mariner was waived from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Hill is an all-purpose back who can contribute as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. He won't get a ton of work currently as he's behind both Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman on the depth chart.

  Falcons | Brian Hill added to practice squad    Mon Sep 3, 07:46 PM

Free-agent RB Brian Hill was signed to the Atlanta Falcons practice squad Monday, Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: Hill was drafted by the Falcons in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL draft. He was signed off the Falcons practice squad by the Bengals in 2017 and spent about nine months with the team. Now he's back with the Falcons, and Hill has an interesting all-purpose skill set. Currently buried on the practice squad, we'll see if Hill can stick with the team that drafted him and make the active roster sometime.

  Bengals | Brian Hill signed by Bengals    Tue Nov 14, 04:37 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Brian Hill was signed off the practice squad by the Cincinnati Bengals Tuesday, Nov. 14.

Footballguys view: Hill was an interesting player we've been monitoring in super deep dynasty leagues. A fifth-round pick out of Wyoming in 2017, Hill runs with a blend of confidence, effort and lateral agility. He's a good all-purpose back who can contribute as a receiver out of the backfield. With Jeremy Hill (ankle) on Injured Reserve, the Bengals needed depth at the position behind Joe Mixon and Gio Bernard.

  Falcons | Terron Ward aiming to be No. 3 back    Sun Aug 20, 09:28 PM

Atlanta Falcons RB Terron Ward had nine carries for 37 yards and a touchdown in a 17-13 preseason loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, Aug. 20, and RB Brian Hill had seven carries for 14 yards. Ward and Hill are competing for the third running back spot.

Footballguys view: Ward is a tough, no-nonsense runner with some experience over the rookie Hill. It's an interesting situation for dynasty owners to watch given the fact that Tevin Coleman is set to be a free agent in 2019.
