2018 Fantasy Outlook
Hill spent most of his rookie season on the Falcons' practice squad after being taken in the fifth round of the 2017 draft, but was signed by the Bengals off the practice squad in November. In Cincinnati he saw action in six games, mostly on special teams, seeing action on only 19 offensive snaps. He ended up with 11 carries for 37 yards, along with two catches for 36 yards. He's at risk of losing his roster spot after the Bengals took Miami running back Mark Walton in the fourth round this year. Read Past Outlooks

Hill will be available for Sunday's game against the Panthers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
ANALYSIS
Hill was promoted from the practice squad Tuesday with Devonta Freeman dealing with a knee injury. Freeman has now been ruled out for Week 2, opening the window for Hill. Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith should see the bulk of the reps at running back, while Hill will likely be limited to special teams, barring an injury.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
A fifth-round pick in the 2017 draft, Hill will slot in behind one of the most dynamic running back tandems in the league in Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Freeman and Coleman combined for 24 touchdowns last season, but Hill is no stranger to the end zone, either, as he racked up 35 touchdowns in 37 career games at Wyoming. He would be the top candidate to fill in for Coleman or Freeman should one of them suffer an injury. Otherwise, he may find it difficult to earn meaningful touches in his rookie season.
