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

Makes late-season impression
RBAtlanta Falcons
December 31, 2018
Hill ran for 30 yards on eight attempts, adding a nine-yard reception during Sunday's 34-32 win against the Buccaneers.
ANALYSIS
Atlanta entrusted Hill with 16 carries over the final two games of the season after Ito Smith (knee) went down with an injury Week 15. The second-year back turned those opportunities into 145 rushing yards against the Panthers and Buccaneers. Granted, 60 of those yards came on a single carry Week 16, but Hill once again flashed big-play ability in Sunday's season finale, picking up nine or more yards on three of his eight attempts against Tampa Bay's porous rush defense. With Tevin Coleman potentially moving on to a new team in 2019, Hill has a shot to become the Falcons' third-string back behind Devonta Freeman and Ito Smith.

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.
