Speaking Wednesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league won't interfere with the legal proceedings for Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's child abuse investigation. "We will obviously be cooperative with whatever the court wants," Goodell continued. "We are prepared to go ahead and have an interview whenever we have the permission to do so and then we’ll go ahead and make a determination based on what information we have at that time.” Hill has not been suspended by the league or put on the Commissioner's Exempt List, but the Chiefs have told him to stay away from team activities. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation. Fantasy owners should be drafting right now as if Hill will be suspended 6+ games.
Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill was in pads and with the team for the start of Friday's practice, according to BJ Kissel of the team website. Hill hadn't practiced since sustaining a bruised quad in Tuesday's workout. He's good to go now, though, and never moved in our rankings.
Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill left Tuesday's practice with an apparent right leg injury, according to The Athletic's Nate Taylor. We'll keep an eye out for more on the situation.
Update: ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that it’s merely a bruised quad and that the team expects Hill to be “fine."
The league will not discipline Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill over the assault allegations he faced this offseason, according to multiple reports. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the NFL has found no evidence that Hill abused his son. "It will leave open case if further evidence emerges, but Hill is free to report to camp, practice and play this season," Schefter tweeted. That clears Hill for 16 games, barring further evidence emerging. Hill had already climbed to Round 4 of best-ball drafts and could make his way into the 3rd or even 2nd round of drafts now. He belongs in that range. His cleared status helps QB Patrick Mahomes, lowers the target ceiling for WR Sammy Watkins and should push rookie WR Mecole Hardman to the fringes of 2019 redraft.
The Athletic's Nate Taylor hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's meeting with the NFL on Wednesday was "successful." Hill reportedly provided the league with "a massive amount of evidence to support his testimony." The Chiefs still expect a suspension for Hill, with 1 source predicting "a maximum of 4 games," according to Taylor. We're sticking with our projection of 12 games for Hill for now and will continue to keep a close eye on the situation. Hill's ADP is sitting in the mid-5th round in drafts over the past week.
Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill will meet with the NFL about his child-abuse allegations on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hill won't face legal charges, but that won't necessarily stop the league from handing him a suspension. Hopefully we'll get clarity on Hill's 2019 status soon. He's gone in the mid-5th round in fantasy drafts over the past 2 weeks.
