Tyreek Hill Fantasy Football News 2021

Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle), WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) and WR Sammy Watkins (calf) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Hill would likely play if this game meant anything to Kansas City. Edwards-Helaire and Watkins' statuses for the playoffs are unclear. The Chiefs have already said QB Patrick Mahomes won't play on Sunday. Don't expect to see TE Travis Kelce, either. RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) is listed as questionable and probably won't play much, if at all.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Falcons. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that the team “will monitor Hill and be smart with him.” There’s slightly elevated risk here, but Hill remains a strong Week 16 fantasy play.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is expected to play vs. Atlanta today. Hill got in 2 limited practices this week, and we never heard any concern about his status. He remains an elite fantasy play.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He got in 2 limited practices this week, and HC Andy Reid said he expects Hill to play. Keep him penciled into fantasy lineups for now, but check back Sunday to make sure he's active.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring issue. The Kansas City Star's Sam McDowell described it as tightness. "I think he's going to be OK," HC Andy Reid said. Hamstrings can be tricky, so we'll keep a close eye on this. But it sounds like Hill is on track to play vs. the Falcons on Sunday.

The NFL is postponing Sunday's Patriots-Chiefs game, though they still expect to play it either Monday or Tuesday. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that "Tuesday is more likely." That would keep players from those teams -- minus Cam Newton -- available for Week 4 fantasy football lineups, though all would obviously be off the main DFS slate. We'll continue watching for further updates. A postponement to Tuesday was also the initial plan for Steelers-Titans before that game ultimately got moved to Week 7. So far, at least, this situation doesn't include multiple positive tests amid either team.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's hamstring injury is minor. "No great concern there," Garafolo adds. We'll keep an eye on Hill, but he hasn't moved in the WR rankings.

Update: Andy Reid told ESPN's Adam Teicher that Hill will return to the practice field in a few days.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill injured his right hamstring in Thursday's practice. Based on reports from media members in attendance, it doesn't seem like a serious injury. But hamstrings can be tricky. We'll obviously keep a close eye on Hill and see when he's able to get back on the field.

Snow is expected throughout today's Broncos-Chiefs game. There are already multiple inches of snow on the field. We're not adjusting projections for this game because there's no evidence that snow impacts scoring. But you can certainly use the weather as a tiebreaker between 2 closely ranked players.

The forecast for today's Raiders-Chiefs game calls for winds of 20-30 mph and gusts of 40+. That's more than enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We wouldn't bench your usual Chiefs (Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Travis Kelce), but their ceilings might be capped a bit in the wind. Raiders QB Derek Carr and WR Tyrell Williams are shaky fantasy plays today. Ditto for Ks Harrison Butker and Daniel Carlson.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He's an elite Week 13 fantasy play vs. Oakland's flammable secondary.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid is "optimistic" about WR Tyreek Hill's availability for Sunday's game against the Raiders after he exited the Week 11 win over the Chargers with a hamstring injury. "I think he'll be all right," Reid said. "We'll see how it goes." Hill can be penciled into Week 13 fantasy lineups for now. We'll track his practice participation throughout the week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's hamstring injury was "deemed minor." Hill is considered day-to-day and has a "real chance" to be ready after the Week 12 bye, per Rapoport. We'll keep an eye on Hill when Kansas City returns to practice next week.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill injured his right hamstring in the 1st quarter of Monday night's game against the Chargers. He was worked on by a trainer on the sideline before eventually heading back to the locker room. Hill is officially questionable to return.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) is active for today’s game against the Texans. He received medical clearance late this week but was reportedly still dealing with soreness in that injured shoulder. Hill obviously comes with more risk than usual this week — but he still boasts week-winning upside.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) will play against the Texans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hill was able to maintain his cardio while rehabbing from this injury, and we haven't heard anything about him being on a snap count today. You'd need to be loaded at WR to consider benching Hill in season-long fantasy leagues.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) has a "serious chance" to play against the Texans today. The team will reportedly wait until pregame warmups to make a final decision. We'll get Hill's official status around 11:30 am. He'll come with elevated risk but would be nearly impossible to bench in season-long fantasy leagues if active.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Hill has received medical clearance to play but adds that he dealt with soreness in that shoulder this week. Hill is a game-time decision.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (clavicle) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Texans. He practiced all week, but it sounds like he's still awaiting final medical clearance. The good news is that we'll get Hill's official status by noon ET on Sunday. If he's active, he'll return to must-start status. The nature of his injury means he should be a full-go once he's cleared. If Hill is out, Kansas City will roll with WRs Demarcus Robinson, Byron Pringle and Mecole Hardman.
