How to handle Tyreek Hill injury in Week 16 fantasy football

Tyreek Hill is on the Chiefs final injury report for Week 16. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

Game status: Hill is ACTIVE for Week 16.

Game day update: Hill is expected to play, per Adam Schefter, although given the opponent, if the game gets out of hand the Chiefs it might not be surprising to see Hill get some rest with the playoffs looming.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill is officially listed as questionable on this week’s injury report with a hamstring issue. But fear not, oh worrisome fantasy manager, Hill is a sure bet to play this week in a tasty matchup against the hapless Falcons.

Fantasy impact: Tyreek Hill (hamstring)

Hill missed practice on Wednesday and was limited on Thursday, but he managed to get in a full session on Friday. Head coach Andy Reid added that he expects Hill to be active this week too.

Last week against the Saints, Hill caught six passes on 10 targets for 53 yards and a touchdown. That was his 17th trip to the end zone, and he’s now tied with Alvin Kamara for the league lead in scores this season. He could easily run his way back into the top spot this week against a porous Falcons defense.

Don’t let the questionable designation scare you away; this is a great week to have Hill in the lineup for your fantasy league championship.
