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. Beat writer B.J. Kissel reports that Hill has been consistently making contested catches throughout training camp. He's an exciting fantasy starter on the rise 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 | Tyreek Hill standing out (Thu Aug 10, 05:41 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill 'has been the star of camp,' according to the Kansas City Star's Terez A. Paylor.

Our View: Hill had a very good season in 2016 and ended up the 15th fantasy wide receiver based on some great games. Clearly fantasy GM's are expecting him to playing very well. Current getting selected as the 23rd wide receiver in drafts. We feel that is less about Hill and more about the limitations of his quarterback, and certainly feel that he 10 out-produce that ADP.

Chiefs | Big year coming for Tyreek Hill? (Sun Aug 6, 08:26 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is headed for a 'huge, huge year,' according to Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star, and Paylor believes Hill could top 75 receptions this year.

Our View: Hill's role is going to grow and he should be able to maintain WR2/WR3 numbers at least. Even if he doesn't return to his WR1 level of production from the second half of the season, Hill is a good bet to return expected value on a fifth round pick.

Chiefs | Tyreek Hill, Alex Smith sporting rapport (Fri Aug 4, 01:18 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith and WR Tyreek Hill has been a 'great' connection all camp long, according to Chiefs.com's B.J. Kissel.

Our View: The Chiefs have come out and said they are going to emphasize Hill in the offense and it appears to be paying off. His touchdown rate was fluky last year, but with a larger role in the offense, he can more than make up for regression to the mean and provide profit on taking him at his fifth-round ADP.
