Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 6 vs PIT (7 / 5 / 34 / 0 rec, 1 / -9 / 0 rush)
Tyreek Hill caught five passes for 34 yards on seven targets, and lost 9 yards on his only carry of the game. Hill ran his usual compliment of routes, specifically wide receiver screens, drags and double move go-routes down the field. The Steelers did a great job of containing him right after the catch though, and Hill was unable to create much separation on his routes. His longest gain of the day came on an out-route to the right sideline that went for 10 yards.
2017 Week 5 vs HOU (6 / 4 / 68 / 0 rec)
Tyreek Hill caught four passes for 68 yards on five targets, and would have had over 100+ receiving yards if not for a close call where he saw a 38 yard reception overturned after review. Despite catching only four passes for 68 yards, Hill was able to influence the outcome of the game by returning a punt 82 yards for a touchdown. Hill has proven to be able to affect the outcome of game by ways that do not include him catching passes, either as an effective decoy for Hunt and Kelce, or similar to what he did in 2016, returning punts and kicks for touchdowns and setting up the Chiefs with great field goal position. It is why he remains one of the most electric and fun players in the NFL to watch.
2017 Week 4 vs WAS (6 / 5 / 35 / 0 rec)
Tyreek Hill caught five passes for 35 yards, and was held without a carry for the first time this season. With Kareem Hunt receiving so many touches on offense for the Chiefs, it is difficult for the offense to sustain multiple big games from their receivers. It has been this way to start the season with Hill and Travis Kelce alternating each week, with Hill scoring touchdowns in weeks one and three, and Kelce having 100+ yard receiving games in weeks two and four. Hill was very efficient though, snagging five of his six targets. All of Hill's targets came within ten yards of the line of scrimmage, which kept the Washington secondary tight on him, allowing Travis Kelce to create big plays down the field. One such play was a great reminder of how Hill is able to impact the game even when he is not touching the ball. Travis Kelce has been the focus of opposing team's defensive gameplans, so he is not taking any secondary by surprise. Despite this, while the Chiefs were deep in their own territory, Hill ran a deep go route that kept the Redskins safeties in their place and edging towards the right sideline. Kelce got off the line of scrimmage quickly and around his defender easily, running straight up the middle of the field. Alex Smith threw an impressive deep ball that hit Kelce perfectly in stride for a 32 yard gain. Without Hill's presence, Kelce would have most likely been on the receiving end of a big hit from the Redskins safety, but the defender was nowhere near the ball when Kelce secured the catch.
2017 Week 3 vs LAC (8 / 5 / 77 / 1 rec, 3 / 13 / 0 rush)
Tyreek Hill had an efficient day against the Chargers, catching five of eight targets for 77 yards and a touchdown. When Hill came into the league, he was an electric talent, but somewhat raw as a receiver. He's made incredible strides from last season, as he is now using his speed and athleticism to set up his defenders on his routes. It shows when you look at how efficient he's been on the year catching 16 of 22 targets from Alex Smith. Hill scored a 30 yard touchdown on the opening drive, where he used his speed to beat his defenders across the field. By the time Alex Smith delivered a perfect throw, Hill had already beat the entire secondary and was wide open for the touchdown.
2017 Week 2 vs PHI (6 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Tyreek Hill was fairly quiet in the Chiefs win over the Eagles, catching four passes--on six targets--for 33 yards, while also adding six yards on one carry. Hill remains a big part of the Chiefs offense, but there are going to be weeks where the passing game cannot sustain two dominant pass catchers, and this past week was Travis Kelce's turn to have a big game. Despite the pedestrian statistics, there were still moments where Hill flashed his unlimited potential as a receiver. One of these moments came in the first quarter, with Hill lined up on the left side of the formation. With Hill's incredible speed, defensive backs have started to give him a big cushion off the line of scrimmage. Hill ran a simple six yard comeback route, and Alex Smith threw him a little high and inside. Hill's defender tried to make a play on the ball, only to see Hill make a tough catch and immediately turn the ball up field and gain 14 yards on the play. Without that initial cushion, there was a very good chance the ball would have been intercepted, but instead Hill turned the play into a first down for the Chiefs.
2017 Week 1 vs NE (8 / 7 / 133 / 1 rec, 2 / 5 / 0 rush)
Tyreek Hill got off to a fast start this season, catching seven passes for 133 yards and one touchdown against a talented Patriots secondary. This included a 75 yard touchdown catch where Hill ran a straight go route and left the Patriots secondary in the dust. Alex Smith delivered an accurate pass that traveled around 50 yards in the air, which is about as far as Smith has ever been able to throw the ball. There was not a Patriots defender within 15 yards of Hill when he caught the ball, which is a testament to his blazing speed as well as the Patriots being caught off guard by the Chiefs running deep routes. It is obvious that the Chiefs view Hill as their #1 receiver, and will use him in a variety of ways to get him the ball in space. He's as exciting a player as there is in the NFL right now.
