Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 10 vs TEN (19 / 11 / 157 / 1 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Tyreek Hill caught 11 passes on 19 targets for 157 yards and one touchdown, while also rushing one time for three yards. The 19 targets were a career high for Hill, and a sure sign that the Chiefs know who their offense runs through. It was the second consecutive week that Hill has gone over 140 yards and a touchdown. Hill's day could have been even bigger had Mahomes not overthrown him on a deep ball where Hill had several steps on the Titans safeties. If you wanted to see how much Hill has grown as a route-runner since entering the NFL, this was a good game to watch. Hill not only consistently beat his defender down the field, but he also used that speed to set himself up on shorter routes where the defense needed to give him a cushion. This resulted in a lot of yards after the catch for Hill, but more importantly it kept the Titans secondary guessing, which is why he was able to beat them over the top, despite the Titans constantly throwing double teams at him. Hill's touchdown catch came with the Chiefs facing a first and 10 from the Titans 11 yard line. Mahomes took the snap out of the shotgun with Hill and two other receives bunched to his right and Williams sprinting in motion to the right side of the formation just prior to the snap. The play was designed to be a clear out route for Hill, who ran a crossing route where he angled himself diagonally to the back left corner of the endzone and ran to it. Hill was able to create separation from his defender immediately, which gave Mahomes plenty of real estate to find him in the back of the end zone. For the 11 yard score. While Hill's speed should not shock anyone at this point, it is certainly impressive to see how quickly he can get a step on his man, especially in the short field where defending speed is much, much easier.
2019 Week 9 vs MIN (8 / 6 / 140 / 1 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
LeSean McCoy rushed three times for nine yards and caught one pass on one target for zero yards. After fumbling at crucial points in the game in weeks past, McCoy is looking like he might be phased out of his time share with Williams. It is not that Williams is the more effective runner, because he is not, McCoy has been very efficient this season and looks spry for a player with so many miles on him. McCoy has always carried the ball like someone running to give a cell-phone call to another person, with one hand and no semblance of protection. This was less of a problem when McCoy was the featured back on the Eagles and Bills, and was churning out big plays and 1,000 yard seasons. Now, he is the second man in a platoon of running backs, and any fumble is going to be criticized and looked at closely. His fumble last week was avoidable, and it came at a crucial point in the game, so it is not surprising that Andy Reid has turned to Williams to head his rushing attack. I don't see McCoy being completely phased out going forward, but the chances of him becoming the lead back have come and gone, barring injury. .
2019 Week 8 vs GB (9 / 6 / 76 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Tyreek Hill caught six passes on nine targets for 76 yards against the Packers on Sunday night. Hill was Moore's most targeted player on the offense, and he did well with the opportunities he was given. Hill's main weapon is his speed, but Moore is not the type of target who is going to throw him open down the field like Mahomes, so Hill depended mostly on his ability to gain yards after the catch in the short and intermediate passing game. Hill had a long gain of 21 yards that set up a Chiefs field goal, bringing them from near midfield to the Packers red zone. With Mahomes coming back next week, Hill's value remains a high value target and a proven playmaker who will convert long touchdowns with an average target volume for a #1 receiver.
2019 Week 7 vs DEN (5 / 3 / 74 / 1 rec)
Tyreek Hill caught three passes for 74 yards and a touchdown on five targets in the Chiefs win over the Broncos on Thursday. Since returning from an injury last week, Hill now has three touchdown catches in the past two weeks and his return could not have come at a better time with Mahomes injury. He will be depended on to give the Chiefs explosive plays as Matt Moore does not have the same type of playmaking ability as Mahomes. Although Hill only had three catches in this game, he made his presence felt by scoring on a 57 yard touchdown. With the Chiefs facing a first and 10 from their own 43 yard line, Moore took the snap under center and play action faked the ball to McCoy in the backfield. Hill started on the left outside left position and ran a crossing pattern towards the right sideline. He was able to get out in front of his defender and turn his route upfield as Moore lofted a pass up and over the defense. From there it was all Hill, as he outran his defender without being touched on his way to the 57 yard score. In order for the Chiefs to keep pace in the AFC, they will need Hill to keep churning out big plays until Mahomes returns from his injury.
2019 Week 6 vs HOU (10 / 5 / 80 / 2 rec)
Tyreek Hill caught five passes on 10 targets for 80 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs loss to the Texans on Sunday. In his first game back, Hill made his presence felt by scoring two touchdowns, and leading the Chiefs in receptions, targets, receiving yards and touchdowns. Hill's first touchdown catch was a thing of beauty, as the diminutive wide receiver went up and high pointed the ball against two Texans defenders. It was the type of play that reminds you Hill is much more than just a burner at the receiver position. He has improved his route-running by leaps and bounds since his rookie season, and he doesn't just have speed, but is an incredible athlete capable of coming down with contested passes. He also showed impressive strength by dragging two Texans across the goal line after making the jumping catch. Hill's second touchdown was an easy one as the Texans defense left him wide open after Hill ran a double move, starting with a crossing route to the middle of the field from the right slot, before running back to the right side of the end zone for an easy six yard touchdown. Hill's presence gives the Chiefs an extra dimension on offense, and I would not be surprised to see this offense get back on track Thursday night against the Broncos.
2019 Week 1 vs JAX (2 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Tyreek Hill caught two passes for 16 yards on two targets, while also rushing one time for five yards. Hill left early in the game with what has been described as a "sternoclavicular joint injury" which was originally thought to be sending him to Injured Reserve. Hill managed to avoid IR, and the latest injury reports have him slated to miss somewhere between three and five weeks.
