2021 Fantasy Outlook
Hilliard finished up the 2020 season with Houston after spending three seasons in Cleveland. He never emerged as anything more than a depth back for the Browns, but he was a regular kick returner. That was largely his role with the Texans late in the season. Houston brought in running backs Phillip Lindsay and Mark Ingram to operate as part of a committee with starter David Johnson. That means Hilliard will occupy a similar role in 2021. Read Past Outlooks

Works efficiently in win
RBTennessee Titans
January 9, 2022
Hilliard rushed the ball nine times for 57 yards in Sunday's 28-25 win over the Texans. He added one reception for one yard.
ANALYSIS
Hilliard once again worked behind D'Onta Foreman, though he nearly out-gained Foreman with 12 fewer carries. He tallied three rushes that went for 10 or more yards to average 6.3 yards per carry. Though Hilliard has worked efficiently with his recent uptick in opportunity, he is likely to fade down the depth chart with the impending return of Derrick Henry (foot) for Tennessee's playoff run.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Hilliard started 2019 as the Browns' No. 2 back, but his offensive snaps dried up during the second half of the season when Kareem Hunt returned from an eight-game suspension. Hilliard finished with 13 carries, 49 yards and two TDs over 14 games while making his biggest impact on special teams as the primary returner of punts and kickoffs. Not much has changed on offense -- Hunt and Nick Chubb are still around -- and there will be more competition at the return spot, so Hilliard may be relegated to coverage duty on special teams.
Signed as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane in May 2018, Hilliard failed to make the 53-man roster out of camp and eventually ended up on Cleveland's practice squad. He was promoted in early-October and appeared in 11 games, catching nine passes for 105 yards out of the backfield. With Kareem Hunt suspended the first eight games, Hilliard has a prime chance to carve out a change-of-pace role behind Nick Chubb, now that Duke Johnson has been traded to Houston.
