What to do with Tyreek Hill in Week 1 fantasy football

Tyreek Hill should be one of the top fantasy wideout plays in Week 1.

Fourth quarter update: Tyreek Hill isn’t putting up a huge game, but he found the end zone with 11:25 to go in the fourth quarter. He has five receptions for 46 yards and a touchdown.

Third quarter update: Hill is finally starting to see more looks. With just under 11 minutes to go in the third quarter, Hill is up two three receptions for 28 yards. The numbers aren’t robust, but it’s a step in the right direction.

Game update: Tyreek Hill is on the field, but not getting a lot of looks from quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He has been targeted twice in the first half and has one reception for seven yards late in the final minute of the second quarter.

Kansas City Chiefs wideout Tyreek Hill had a down year in 2019 because of health issues but will look to start off the 2020 season on a high note against the Houston Texans on Thursday. He’s should return to being one of the most sought after fantasy receivers, and we’ll go over whether he’s a viable option for Week 1 below.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill

The Texans ranked 25th against the pass in 2019, according to Football Outsiders. Hill exploded with five receptions for 80 yards and two scores in his first game against them last year. The Chiefs have a host of other dangerous weapons including Sammy Watkins, Travis Kelce, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, but Hill is a premiere WR1 going up against one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL.

Start/Sit Recommendation

There’s no reason to sit Hill when he has such a high ceiling. He has the potential to be the highest scoring wideout in the league for Week 1.
