Latest News

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.

Our 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 set for big week? (Tue Nov 12, 09:18 PM) - Atlanta Falcons RB Brian Hill played 51 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday, Nov. 10, in the win over the New Orleans Saints. The bulk of Hill's work came with RB Devonta Freeman (foot) out of the game.

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.

Our 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.
