Week 3: vs San Francisco 49ers

All WR vs SF

FBG says: Good matchup. What is there to say about Patrick Mahomes that has not already been said at this point. Mahomes is extremely talented with a cannon for an arm and is one of the great breakout stories of 2018. The real question is whether can keep this up and while the answer to that question is most certainly no as he is not going to throw for 80 touchdowns this season, he can continue to throw for the yardage that we've seen so far. It was a tremendous sign of growth for the quarterback to involve Travis Kelce which he has not historically thrown to tight ends showing he is much more than just the air raid offense quarterback that we saw in college. The only critique for the Chiefs is that Kareem Hunt who had 53 receptions in 2017 only has one reception thus far this season which if they can get Hunt the ball in space will only add to their value as a passing offense. The 49ers are a secondary that was one of the worst in 2017 and while they allowed 347 yards and three touchdowns to the Lions and Matthew Stafford, most of this was in the second half as the Lions attempted to make a ferocious comeback. The issue for the 49ers continues to be K'Waun Williams who struggled out of the slot in 2017 and is back once again in the slot for the 49ers in 2018 and will face one of the elite wide receivers in football in Tyreek Hill quite often in this game. This will also be a test for the 49ers safeties as they have not faced a tight end that is close to Kelce's caliber and while they have done a great job shutting down tight ends will be forced to face a tough test this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs PIT (6 / 5 / 90 / 1 rec)

Tyreek Hill caught five passes for 90 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in the Chiefs win over the Steelers on Sunday. Mahomes spread the ball around more this game, but even though he threw five touchdowns to other players, Hill still finished with 20+ points in PPR formats. The Steelers did not leave their cornerbacks in one on one man coverage with no safety help many times on Hill, yet it seemed like every time they did, Hill was roasting his defenders for big gains. Hill's first catch didn't come until the first play of the second half, but it went for 36 yards. With Burns covering him, Hill abused him with a quick out-in-out fake to the left sideline and gained separation quickly. The Steelers blitzed from the right side which forced Mahomes to fade back before throwing over the top to Hill, which was so far ahead of his defender that the pass actually went over the top and then behind Hill before Burns could recover. Had the Steelers not blitzed and Mahomes got off a normal throw, this would have went for a 75 yard touchdown. Hill adjusted to the pass and then gained another 15 yards after the catch. Hill's touchdown catch, which was Mahomes sixth, was a 29 yard play that showed off his burgeoning route-running skills. The call was a fly-route up the left side of the field, but as Hill gained separation he curled his route to the inside of the field which allowed him to make the catch without having to battle his defender along the goal line. The play was simply too easy for the Chiefs receiver, as his defender had no way of recovering before Hill could score the deciding touchdown.

2018 Week 1 vs LAC (8 / 7 / 169 / 2 rec, 2 / 4 / 0 rush)

Tyreek Hill led the Chiefs in receptions, yards, touchdowns and targets against the Chargers, catching seven passes for 169 yards and two touchdowns. Hill also returned a punt 91 yards for a touchdown and rushed twice for 4 yards. Hill was the difference in this game, as the Chargers had no answer for his speed and Mahomes ability to find him whenever he was open. Hill's first touchdown came on a slant route where Mahomes did a great job of not letting pressure impact his pass. Mahomes hit Hill in stride in the middle of the field and Hill was able to get to the outside so quickly that the Chargers safety only managed to get a hand on his leg as Hill flew by him for a 58 yard touchdown. Hill's next touchdown catch came on a shovel pass from the 1 yard line. Hill came across the formation and took the pass easily for a touchdown without being touched by a Chargers defender. Hill's punt return touchdown was a thing of beauty, and came before Kansas City was even able to run an offensive play. The punt was a good one and Hill was able to run back so that when he caught the punt, he was moving away from the Chargers punt coverage. That allowed him to get to the left sideline where he simply outran the Chargers, and scored a 90 yard touchdown without being touched.

Chiefs | Tyreek Hill posts 90 yards, score (Sun Sep 16, 06:34 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill registered five receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown on six targets in the Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Our View: Hill was quiet for a lot of the game. It seems inevitable that he will get free for a score with Patrick Mahomes at quarterback. He might be the most valuable wide receiver in fantasy football with Antonio Brown banged up.
