How to handle Tyreek Hill injury in Week 4 fantasy football

Is Hill ready to return from his broken collarbone yet?

The Kansas City Chiefs haven’t seen much of Tyreek Hill this season. He broke his collarbone in the first game of the season, which put his timetable for return between four and six weeks. He will not be in the lineup this week, but now that we’re inside that window, it’s enough for fantasy owners to wonder.

Hill no longer needed his arm in a sling last week. Head coach Andy Reid sounded an optimistic note soon thereafter about Hill’s potential return. Clearly, his recovery is going well.

The Chiefs haven’t needed him so far this season. They’re scoring more than 33 points per game and boast a perfect 3-0 record. However, Kansas City is a much different, better team with Hill’s speed in the lineup.

Fantasy impact: No Hill this week, but given the optimism, you have to wonder if he won’t be ready to go when the Chiefs host the Colts on Sunday Night Football in Week 5. When they do have him back, he’s a no-brainer to start in your fantasy lineups. Stay tuned.
