This season has been one injury after another for Hillis. The latest setback, a hip injury, reportedly will not keep him out of action on Thursday against the Steelers. Hillis will need to be close to 100% if he is going to perform against a Steelers defense that is giving up the 6th fewest fantasy points per game (16) in the league.
ProFootballFocus.com projectes 71 total yards for Hillis, good for 25th on their Week 14 RB rankings.
CBS says you should consider Hillis no more than a RB#3 in Week 14.
FANTASY FOOTBALL SPIN
Hillis has a tough matchup this week. As a matter of fact, he has a tough schedule for the rest of the way. The easiest matchup the Browns have is against the Cardinals, but despite them being, well, the Cardinals, they aren’t pushovers against the run. They are only giving up one more point per game (17) to opposing RBs. He should get the lion’s share of the carries, but it’s hard to count on Hillis as any more than a RB#3 or flex play for the rest of the year.
