Summary

The rookie speedster was the No. 15 fantasy receiver in 2016, thanks to combined yardage production as a hybrid runner-receiver. Hill, a former running back at Oklahoma State who converted to wide receiver before a domestic violence charge led him to transfer to West Alabama, should have the same dual role with the Chiefs heading into his second professional season. Hill's production benefitted tremendously from creative play calling, but it's just as valid to say that the Chiefs play design benefitted just as much from Hill's ability to create separation with and without the ball in his hands. Although De'Anthony Thomas has great speed, he never showed the hands or short area creativity that Hill demonstrated last year. Hill will have to become a complete receiver to build on his top-15 fantasy season in 2017. If Hill's game doesn't expand, his yardage production could be a difficult bar to pass. Even so, he's an exciting fantasy starter in most leagues whose red zone usage will remain high and if he's more productive near the stripe, the low potential for him significantly increasing his yardage won't be a fantasy deterrent.

Chiefs | No kick returns for Tyreek Hill (Mon Jun 12, 02:35 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill will not be returning kickoffs this season, according to special teams coordinator Dave Toub. Toub and the Chiefs view Hill as too valuable of a wide receiver in light of free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin's (Chiefs) release. Hill will remain the Chiefs' punt returner, however.

Our View: Head coach Andy Reid has already said that managing Hill's workload won't be an issue. Reid has managed similar players in former Philadelphia Eagles RB Brian Westbrook and Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson.
