Atlanta Falcons
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Falcons front office clearly holds an admiration for Hill's style of play, as supported by the team's willingness to re-acquire him in September following a nearly year-long stint with Cincinnati. A sturdy back at 6-1, 219, Hill appeared in 10 games for Atlanta last season, with all 20 of his carries coming between Weeks 14 and 17. Of his 157 rushing yards, 60 came on a single fourth-quarter run Week 16 against Carolina, but even removing that play he still yielded 5.1 yards per attempt. Granted, Hill's audition didn't afford a large enough sample size to secure him as a dependable second-string option for the Falcons, but he absolutely will compete for a spot on special teams if not the No. 3 running back role.

Coach's Decision
October 13, 2019
Hill (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 6 tilt versus the Cardinals.
ANALYSIS
Hill had been active the prior two games but exclusively played special teams. He'll sit this one out, with Devonta Freeman, Ito Smith and Kenjon Barner the three active running backs against the Cardinals.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
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.
