WR Jason Hill - Free Agent
|6-0, 210||Born: 2-20-1985||College: Washington State||Drafted: Round 3, pick 0|
2012 Week 5 vs HOU (2 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
After placing Santonio Holmes on Injured Reserve, the Jets signed Jason Hill. Hill's lone reception occurred during his team's final drive. Hill ran a crisp ten yard out route for a first down. Hill showed awareness by getting out of bound to stop the clock. Hill was also the recipient of Tim Tebow's sole pass attempt. Unfortunately, Hill was not able to come down with the catch.
2012 Week 6 vs IND (1 / 1 / 5 / 1 rec)
Hill made his only reception count. Hill ran a drag route in the back of the end zone and found inside position against Jerrod Powers. Sanchez powered the ball to Hill for the touchdown.
2011 Week 1 vs TEN (5 / 4 / 53 / 0 rec)
Jason Hill spent week one against the Tennessee Titans lined up outside of Mike Thomas to the right or split by himself to the left. When isolated, he often ran go routes or quick slants to the inside. When lined up with Thomas, he ran out routes, curls, and go routes in an attempt to bring the safety to the sideline and free Thomas up in the middle. Hill's best catch came on an 18 yard deep slant. On the play, Hill lined up split off the end on the right side. He fought through the jam at the line of scrimmage and made a move to the inside about 10 yards down field. The pass from McCown was on time and Hill snagged it despite tight coverage from the Titans cornerback. Most impressively, Hill held on to the ball as he was being tackled despite the fact that the Titans corner was desperately trying to rip it from his grasp.
2011 Week 3 vs CAR (5 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Jason Hill was at the mercy of his quarterback's fortunes, or lack thereof, in this game. Hill caught a 15 yard out route zipped in to him by Gabbert early, but the play was called back by a penalty. Gabbert tried to get the football to Hill throughout, including a deep target down the sideline which was not thrown where it needed to be. It allowed the defensive back to break on the ball and almost intercept it had Hill not broken it up and spared his quarterback's blushes. Hill had nobody to blame but himself on a dropped quick slant in the 3rd quarter that was delivered to him on a rope by Gabbert. If he had caught it, he had about 20 yards of green grass ahead of him, and possibly more. The Gabbert/Hill connection needs refinement, but with extra first team reps together it can turn into something.
2011 Week 4 vs NO (9 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)
Jason Hill is another reliable but unspectacular Jaguar receiver for Gabbert to try and get the most out of. Hill made a few nice intermediate catches, showing his hands and ability to get open at times. One of the major issues with the overall Jaguar production was an inability to protect their QB and WR's like Hill suffered from it.
2011 Week 5 vs CIN (7 / 5 / 118 / 1 rec)
Hill demonstrated his skill as a dependable possession receiver, coming back to the QB as Gabbert was scrambling and helping to convert on 3rd down. Then, in the 4th quarter, Hill found himself all alone behind the Bengals' secondary because of busted coverage for the game's longest play--a 74-yard TD strike that gave the Jaguars the lead. Thanks to that TD, Hill had the best day of any receiver, but it was not enough to end the Jaguars' 3-game losing streak.
2011 Week 6 vs PIT (3 / 2 / 29 / 1 rec)
While it's a far cry from his career game last week, Hill performed admirably in this game. His touchdown came while being single-covered by Pittsburgh corner Ike Taylor - a player who had allowed fewer than 50 yards to receivers he was covering all season. While the box score may grade his game as a C-, if "grading on the curve" based on who was covering him, Hill played more like a B. He's developing alongside Gabbert, and with a fully-developed quarterback, Hill and Thomas would make a nice receiver tandem with Thomas being the solid drive-maintaining player and Hill being the field-stretcher.
2011 Week 7 vs BAL (8 / 4 / 62 / 0 rec)
Hill caught 4 balls, but kind of failed to stand out positively the majority of the time. He doesn't seem to aggressively go after the ball consistently. When Hill does catch the ball he doesn't seem to shy away from contact. The 8 targets reveal that he was the trusted target for Gabbert tonight, in translation he was probably the first read.
2011 Week 8 vs HOU (5 / 1 / 5 / 1 rec)
Hill only had one reception, but made it count as he scored from 5 yards out in the left flat to tie the game midway through the second quarter.
2011 Week 10 vs IND (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Hill did not see the field much despite being listed as a starter, yielding considerable playing time to Dillard and West in 2 and 3 receiver sets.
2011 Week 11 vs CLE (7 / 3 / 49 / 0 rec)
Jason Hill had a very disappointing game that he will look back upon this week and wonder how he didn't play better. Hill had so many opportunities and was not able to take advantage of them for a variety of reasons. Hill started the game strong by tipping a wild pass from Gabbert to himself despite close coverage and getting hit quickly after he tipped the pass. Hill was able to blow by the defense and get open deep down field but Gabbert looked like a rookie and underthrew him. Gabbert looked to avoid taking a hit and hurried his throw which resulted in the underthrow down the field. Hill looked to be getting frustrated as he threw up his hands but came back with a nice grab over the middle of the field as he beat his man and made a big play for his team. Hill failed to make the biggest play of his game on Sunday however. Gabbert found him open in the endzone against CB Haden for the game winning TD but the ball simply bounced off Hill's chest and fall into the dirt harmlessly which ended the game on a very sour note for Jacksonville.
2011 Week 12 vs HOU (4 / 3 / 12 / 0 rec)
Hill made a few catches though was tightly covered with little room to gain yards after the catch. Regrettably his most notable play was a deep ball that the defender was in better position than Hill. Rather than contesting the ball and going up to get it at its high point, he tried to let it come to him, allowing the cornerback to jump over top of him and pick it off.
2010 Week 12 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Hill only had one catch, in the second quarter, but showed good effort on the play, fighting for a little extra ground after the catch. A very minor role player, Hill doesn't see much action, but will work hard when he gets the opportunity.
2010 Week 14 vs OAK (1 / 1 / 48 / 1 rec)
Hill also had a quiet and similar day to Thomas as Garrard favoured his TE's, except Garrard was able to find Hill deep downfield. Hill was in a favourable situation, matched up 1 on 1 on a post pattern with no safety help and an up close CB. Hill blew by him, got and maintained inside leverage and waited for the perfectly in stride pass from Garrard and the walk in touchdown.
2010 Week 16 vs WAS (9 / 4 / 77 / 0 rec)
Hill had two bad drops, but also got open downfield multiple times with ease. He would have had a long TD if Garrard had throw a ball out in front of him deep, but Hill still adjusted made the long catch. He ran aggressively after the catch, and caught one in traffic that set up the game-tying QB draw TD by Garrard. His performance these last few weeks could get him a starting job with Mike Sims-Walker entering free agency.
2009 Week 9 vs TEN (4 / 4 / 50 / 2 rec)
Jason Hill came off the bench in Week 9 as the fourth wide receiver, but he made the most of his chances against the Titans. Hill seemed to move past Isaac Bruce in this contest as he worked the 3- and 4-WR sets and was able to get open twice for two big touchdown receptions in the final minute of both halves of the game from QB Alex Smith. Hill's second half production all came late with the Titans in prevent defense, but if San Francisco starts to use three wide receivers then he becomes a much bigger fantasy contributor.
2009 Week 10 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Third-year wideout Jason Hill has now moved up the depth chart to WR3 for San Francisco, but their current offensive scheme does not utilize three wideouts very often. Early in Week 10, Hill grabbed his only target, a short pass to the left for just five yards on third down and six. Hill attempted to pick up the first down, diving for forward progress but fell just short of the first down. With just the one target and catch, Hill has no fantasy value right now.
2009 Week 15 vs PHI (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jason Hill had three targets in Week 15 but was unable to catch any of them against the Eagles. Hill remains the third wide receiver for the 49ers.
2008 Week 8 vs SEA (5 / 3 / 38 / 1 rec)
WR Jason Hill had his first receptions and touchdown of the season in the loss. He dropped the first pass thrown to him but made two nice catches in the second half including the touchdown grab.
2008 Week 10 vs ARI (10 / 7 / 84 / 0 rec)
Hill was a surprise for the 49ers, coming in and catching seven balls to lead the team with 84 yards receiving. He showed up big late in the game and seemed to have good chemistry with Shaun Hill, catching three straight balls on the final drive. He broke a tackle on the that drive of the game for the 49ers to gain 14 yards and end up at the one yard line.
2008 Week 11 vs STL (4 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Hill had a 22 yard catch, and for the second straight game had an expanded role in the offense.
2008 Week 12 vs DAL (2 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)
Jason Hill was only able to come with one of his two targets, but he made it count as he provided the 49ers with a key first down on their final touchdown drive.
2008 Week 13 vs BUF (5 / 5 / 55 / 0 rec, 1 / -4 / 0 rush)
Hill had a nice game, catching five passes for 55 yards, with his longest going for 20 yards. The young receiver is worth tracking as he will enter his third NFL season next year and veterans that are currently ahead of him on the depth chart may not be back.
2008 Week 14 vs NYJ (5 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Hill ran short routes exclusively, and did well to get open several times and fight for extra yards after catching the ball. He was going in for San Francisco's first touchdown but was stripped of the ball before he could cross the end zone. Fortunately one of his offensive linemen recovered the fumble for the touchdown.
2008 Week 15 vs MIA (3 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Hill was used in three wide sets and did not see the field very much in this game. He was able to catch two balls 19 yards.
2008 Week 16 vs STL (3 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)
Hill worked out of the slot primarily, and was targeted mainly on short routes.
2008 Week 17 vs WAS (4 / 4 / 28 / 1 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Involved in the offense as much as any other San Francisco WR, Hill eclipsed his fellow wide-outs with the team's only TD catch of the day. On that fourth quarter play he took a short dump-off from QB Shaun Hill at the seven yard line and made for the right pylon. While he looked likely to be tackled short, Hill stretched out to get the ball across the goal-line and give his team a late 21-17 lead. Hill also saw a rushing attempt on an end around play early in the game that saw him gain nine yards.
2007 Week 8 vs NO (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Hill caught one pass for six yards late in the game.
