Andy Reid: ‘I think [Tyreek Hill will] be all right. We’ll see how it goes.’

The Chiefs lost WR Tyreek Hill to a hamstring injury in Week 12. We break down the fantasy football implications heading into Week 13.

The Kansas City Chiefs return from their bye to host the Oakland Raiders in Week 13 and they are hoping to have wide receiver Tyreek Hill back in the mix. Hill suffered a hamstring injury on the opening series before the team’s bye and did not return to the game. On Monday, as the Chiefs returned from their bye, head coach Andy Reid told the media, “I think he’ll be all right. We’ll see how it goes,” according to beat writer Adam Teicher.

The Chiefs will have a practice on Monday, but they don’t have to provide their first official practice participation report until Wednesday. Hamstrings can be tricky, so if this goes to a game-day decision, know that the Chiefs and Raiders play a late game at 4:25 p.m. ET.

Fantasy football analysis: Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill

Tight end Travis Kelce was the team’s leading receiver in Hill’s absence, with running back LeSean McCoy second in targets. Sammy Watkins, Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson, and Byron Pringle all saw a mix of targets. If Hill were to sit, Watkins would be the best fantasy option at this point. Hardman, Robinson, and Pringle are too inconsistent to justify starting at this point.
