Like him as a runner or not, he is a certified touchdown vulture. Mixon is now in play and expected to get the brunt of the work, while Bernard lingers as the more talented back, but Hill will still get his hands on the ball and sneak into the end zone enough times to be worthy of a roster spot.

Hill is a plodder who can be worthwhile with enough touches, especially at the goal line, so he has some value in standard leagues, but I'm down on him coming into the 2017 season. Joe Mixon

Back to back season of fewer than four yards per carry and the arrival of Joe Mixon spell trouble for Hill. Auction Value $1

After averaging 5.1 yards per carry in an impressive rookie campaign, Hill never regained that form, averaging just 3.67 yards per carry over the last two seasons. When looking at small sample sizes, things get dicey, but Hill has had plenty of time to showcase his abilities, as he garnered 222 carries in 2016 and 223 carries in 2015. Joe Mixon will come in and steal a lot of work right away, though Hill may still get a majority of the goal-line work, as he's scored 29 rushing touchdowns over the last three years, which is tied for the most in the NFL over that span.

He was a bust in 33% of his games, and Cincinnati lost their LT & RG in free agency, Hill is doomed. Especially after they drafted Mixon.

Hill had only 839 yards rushing and 174 yards receiving, but he did have 9 rushing touchdowns, which does give him flex consideration. He could lose some of those touches and touchdowns to rookie RB Joe Mixon.
