Friday PM Update: Hill was able to practice on Friday and heads into the weekend without an injury designation. Unless Hill picks up an injury or catches the illness bug again, he should see his normal workload against a banged up Chargers defense on Sunday night.
Friday update: Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said Hill is over his illness and he will return to practice on Friday. This bodes well for his game status on Sunday.
The Sunday slate for Week 14 will wrap up with a monster AFC matchup. The Miami Dolphins will play the Los Angeles Chargers in this week’s edition of Sunday Night Football. The Dolphins' offense has been firing on all cylinders but is slowly coming out of the gate this week. Wide receiver Tyreek Hill is dealing with an illness and did not practice on Thursday. While he shouldn’t be sidelined long, we have seen illnesses keep players from suiting up on game day.

Fantasy football implications for Week 14
Hill leads the entire NFL in receiving yards. He has played in all 12 games this season and has 96 receptions for 1,379 yards and five touchdowns. Hill continues to torture defenses with his speed and is a large part of why Miami is sitting in second place in the AFC East. If Hill is active on Sunday, you are going to start him without question in your Week 14 fantasy football lineups. If he is inactive, there would be an uptick in work for Jaylen Waddle as well as Trent Sherfield.
