2020 Fantasy Outlook
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.

October 19, 2020
Hilliard had four carries for 29 yards and a team-high 7.3 yards per carry in Sunday's 38-7 loss to Pittsburgh.
ANALYSIS
Twenty-three of Hilliard's 29 yards came in the fourth quarter of Sunday's blowout, and the back remains No. 3 on the depth chart behind Kareem Hunt and D'Ernest Johnson. Hilliard was on the field for just seven of the Browns' 57 offensive snaps, all in garbage time.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.
