Hill is not part of team activities until the Chiefs clear up a recorded conversation that could be very serious for Hill's future prospects in the child abuse investigation that recently chose to not press charges

Summary

Hill topped career-bests in receptions, yards, and touchdowns as the best fantasy receiver of 2018. Hill has developed as a route runner and proven reliable when targeted as a rebounder. The center of a child battery case, there's a chance the team moves on from Hill. He's not practicing with the team at this time. If he keeps his job, Hill should approach last year's production while the Chiefs earn a more comfortable timeline to acclimate rookie Mecole Hardman. The rookie's acclimation will dictate how much of a drop-off Hill may experience with his workload. (May 22)

Chiefs | Tyreek Hill still could face punishment (Sun Jun 9, 12:15 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill still could face league punishment even though a local district attorney said Friday, June 7, he is no longer the subject of an active criminal investigation involving domestic-abuse allegations. The NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, as written, entails the league can, and will, investigate and punish a player for domestic violence even if he's never arrested or charged. The NFL also can, and will, punish a player for domestic misconduct that does not involve actual violence has been demonstrated by precedents.

Our View: It is difficult to see a scenario where Hill avoids at least a 4-8 game suspension based on the league's previous handling of similar high profile incidents where no charges were filed. The bigger question is whether he ends up on the commissioner's exempt list, which would keep him off of the field indefinitely. While the Chiefs have him suspended from team activities, there's no need for Roger Goodell to take that step, but if they attempt have him at team facilities, the league could step in. It doesn't appear at this point that the Chiefs are considering releasing Hill, but that could obviously change pending the results of the ongoing child services investigation.

Chiefs | Tyreek Hill likely to show up for minicamp (Fri Jun 7, 02:15 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is expected to practice with the team during minicamp next week as there appear to be 'no signs' his status will change between now and then, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Our View: The Chiefs may not take any action on their own despite the optics on Hill looking very bad at this point. This situation could change at any moment, but for now it appears Kansas City is planning on keeping Hill.

Chiefs | Tyreek Hill not under investigation (Fri Jun 7, 12:44 PM) - Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill is currently not under investigation for child abuse it was revealed Friday, June 7. 'It is not an active investigation,' Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said in an email Friday to the Kansas City Star. 'As in any case, if we receive additional evidence, we reevaluate.'

Our View: He is still under investigation by the Kansas Department for Children and Families. The Chiefs and the NFL will likely wait to act until the investigation has completed. He is not on the commissioner's exempt list, but Hill has been suspended from all team activities indefinitely.
