WR - KC
Hill's skillset - matched with Mahomes' arm talent - gives fantasy managers the ability to win a matchup any given week. Hill is simply one of the most difficult receivers to guard due to his speed and he has the ability to put up insane numbers in this offense. Davante Adams should be the first WR drafted this year - assuming Aaron Rodgers is still in Green Bay - but Hill makes a compelling case to be the next one off the board.
Hill was more of a streaky wide receiver early in his career who relied on big plays to get him into WR1 territory, though that seemingly ended in 2020 where he saw 10-plus targets in seven different games. Those numbers combined with his efficiency equals big things, and there's no reason to think they go away; Travis Kelce is going to be 32 years old, Sammy Watkins is gone, and they brought in no big-name wide receivers who are guaranteed much of anything. He's worthy of a first-round pick in fantasy drafts.
Hill had 23 red zone targets, third most in the NFL, but that stat is misleading. Why? Because pretty much every target is a red zone target for someone who is as fast as Hill and in as explosive an offense as Kansas City's. Want proof? Hill has 28 touchdowns of 40-or-more yards over his last four seasons. 28! So long as Patrick Mahomes is the Chiefs' quarterback, Hill is going to be a dominant force at the wide receiver position. He and Davante Adams are the 1A and 1B options at the position, and he's worthy of a first-round selection.
Tyreek Hill is one of the most electrifying players in the league. He plays on arguably the best offense in the league. Don't overthink it. If you want to pull this miracle off, and win the fantasy title, what we need is speed. Demon speed. Speed is what we need. We need greasy, fast speed. So my advice is to either draft Tyreek Hill, or be like Rocky and chase the chicken. If you can catch the chicken you can catch grease lightning!
Last season, Hill cemented his place as one of the top receivers in the game and, IMO, the top fantasy WR in football. Last season, Hill went from a HR-or-bust big play maker to an all around reliable No. 1 receiver. Hill was targeted 10 times in a game 7 time, up from just twice in 2019, and was targeted 6 or more times in all but one game. Already a top option without the consistency, his evolution in a Pat Mahomes-lead offense has made him the top receiver in fantasy.
Hill had 285.4 fantasy points in 15 games and he is an unstoppable force as the best deep threat wide receiver playing with the best deep threat quarterback, Patrick Mahomes. Hill should have another monster year in 2021.
