  1. He won me my fantasy league in 2014 when he exploded in the second half of the season when he overtook Gio.

    I always liked Hill but he didn’t round out his game enough as the league moved more towards passing.

    I like him on the Raiders as a short yardage/goal-line back up. Jacobs, Richard, and Bowden are gonna be first, we’ll see if Hill can make it as the 4th RB.

  2. He was running hard with New England the first couple games in 2018, looking like their best RB before getting knocked out for the year tearing acl. Hopefully he’s worked back into shape and can do well, that was a really unfortunate break for someone who was playing well.

  3. Lat time I recall Hill was his fumble against Steelers in playoffs that cost Bengals the game. I was there and happened right in front of our seats within the 10 yard line all he had to do was hold the ball and they win a freakin’ playoff game forget Burfict and Pacman meltdown without Hill’s fumble the clock runs down and all the other stuff doesn’t happen!!

  4. Hill is a really solid player, and still very young. A nice addition. Would be a #1 RB on a lot of teams, and could carry the load if necessary.

  5. I wish the best for Hill. I will say he had a bad habit of fumbling the ball at the worst possible time. The Bengals loss to the Steelers in the playoffs rests totally on Hill coughing up the ball trying to get an extra yard that wasn’t needed. Take the first down and the game is over.
