RB - FA
Week 14 Outlook
The Titans have placed running back Brian Hill on injured reserve, ending his season.
Hill signed with the Titans this offseason after spending the last three-plus years with the Falcons. Through three preseason contests, he logged 35 carries for 125 rushing yards while fetching an additional three catches for 31 receiving yards. Hill was competing with Darrynton Evans for the Titans' backup running back role. Now, it appears Evans has won the job. He'll likely be limited to usage during third-down and garbage-time situations.
Tennessee tail back Brian Hill accumulated 63 yards in his 14 carries during Saturday's preseason finale. He also caught two passes for 19 yards.
While Hill has shown to be a capable depth piece for the Atlanta Falcons over the years, it's hard to picture him getting enough work in fantasy barring any injuries to players above him on the depth chart. Still, it was a solid showing for the Wyoming product heading into the regular season.
The Titans have signed free agent running back Brian Hill, according to an announcement from his agency. Terms haven't been announced, but it's presumably a one-year deal.
Hill will back up Derrick Henry in Tennessee, though Darrynton Evans might also compete for the No. 2 role. The former Falcons running back logged 100 carries for 465 yards and a score in 2020. He also caught 25 passes for another 199 yards. Hill is a deep stash option who will only have value if Henry goes down.
Falcons RB Brian Hill rushed nine times for 94 yards and caught all three of his targets for 42 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Buccaneers.
Hill led all Atlanta backs with 136 total yards. The future of the Falcons' running back room may not be on this roster.
Falcons RB Brian Hill carried the ball seven times for 36 yards and caught all three of his targets for 25 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to Kansas City.
Hill totaled 61 yards but did not score. The Falcons backfield is a mess despite the fact that Ito Smith and Todd Gurley collectively with Hill had solid outings. Look for another RBBC from the Falcons in a tough Week 17 tilt against Tampa.
