Justice Hill Leads Baltimore Backfield In Win

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill emerged as the leader in the Baltimore backfield during the Divisional Round, rushing 13 times for 66 yards and making two catches for 11 yards in the team's commanding 34-10 victory over the Texans. His 13 carries matched a season-high, and his 66 rushing yards marked his highest in a game all season, surpassing his previous best of 48 yards. Dealing with injuries to running backs J.K. Dobbins and later Keaton Mitchell throughout the season, Hill seized the opportunity that came his way. Baltimore is set to host the AFC title game next week against either the Chiefs or Bills, both of whom rank below average in DVOA against the run. They are both in the bottom half in points allowed to running backs this year, and the Ravens are likely to continue relying on whoever the hot hand is in their backfield.

Justice Hill Not The Best Option Versus Texans

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill has been a boom-or-bust type of fantasy player all year long, but he's seen a lot more busts than booms. His bigger appeal comes in PPR formats since he seems to be the favored back when it comes to passing downs, but he barely cracked the top 60 this season in carries and rushing yards. To make matters worse, the Houston Texans give up the sixth-fewest rushing yards and the lowest yards per carry in the league right now. With Dalvin Cook also in the mix, and Lamar Jackson still taking some carries away from the backfield, Hill's amount of work could be very minimal. In turn, that makes him an extremely risky option.

Justice Hill Holds Low-End Flex Appeal In Week 18

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill is fresh off of his best game this season after playing a huge role in the passing game against the Miami Dolphins. He even posted 16.0 yards per carry even though he only received three carries in that game. In Week 18, however, it's unclear how much action he's going to see since the Ravens have clinched the number-one seed and the bye in the AFC. Gus Edwards seems likely to get plenty of rest, so Hill could see a bit of work while Melvin Gordon III is the next in the line to get some carries if both starters sit out for most of the game. Fantasy managers may want to look elsewhere for a running back since his workload is cloudy at best right now.

Justice Hill Goes Off In Week 17

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill had his best game of the season and put up almost 20 half-PPR fantasy points in the 56-19 blowout win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 17. Hill only saw three carries but gained 48 yards on the ground (16.0 average) while adding a season-high five catches on five targets for a season-high 64 receiving yards and a touchdown. In addition to his work on offense, the 26-year-old had 101 return yards on two kickoffs. Teammate Gus Edwards had 16 rushing attempts for 68 yards and also found the end zone on the ground. It was a nice showing for Hill, but he'll be a volatile fantasy option in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers now that Baltimore has locked up the No. 1 seed in the AFC and a first-round bye.

Justice Hill A Desperation Flex Option In Week 17

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill ended up the number-one back in Week 16 because the game script allowed for it. Hill has always been the one to get more of the passing down work over Gus Edwards. The issue is that Hill has only scored one touchdown all season and the last time he produced a double-digit fantasy performance, even in PPR formats, since Week 5. On top of that, the Miami Dolphins are a top five defense against opposing running backs and they've been even better over the last couple of weeks, allowing just 69 yards on 27 carries. His role in the offense warrants some extra value, but that only amounts to a low-end flex play.

Justice Hill Gets 13 Touches In Week 16

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill leads the backfield in touches during the 33-19 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16. Before Keaton Mitchell (knee) got hurt, Hill was getting phased out of the backfield committee. In the first full game since Mitchell was shut down for the season, Hill received more touches than Gus Edwards with 13 compared to his 10. However, Hill couldn't turn the extra touches into much, as he ended with 26 yards on 10 carries and 31 yards on three receptions. It's unlikely that Hill will become the surefire lead back this season, so he won't be the most trustworthy option in Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins.

Justice Hill A Touchdown Dependent Option In Week 7

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill is hard to trust in any fantasy format but he's at least scored more than his backfield mate Gus Edwards. Through six weeks, Hill clocks in at RB34 compared to Edwards at RB40. Both of them aren't great options unless managers get desperate. Hill has given more of a return on investment as he's scored three times and has a bigger role in the passing game than Edwards. The matchup against the Lions in Week 7 is a tough one though. Detroit has given up the least amount of fantasy points to opposing running backs and they still have to battle with Lamar Jackson for carries. Hill is better left on the bench but could be started as a flex if any managers need a miracle.

Justice Hill A Desperation Play In Week 6

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill was able to salvage his week against the Steelers with the only touchdown that the team scored. That doesn't mean he's going to be a quality play against a Titans team that only gives up 18.1 fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Hill still has to deal with Lamar Jackson and Gus Edwards taking his carries, but he does have the passing game advantage over Edwards. Last week, he saw more snaps during passing plays and he has seven targets compared to Edwards' two. Either way, Hill should only be a desperation flex play in PPR leagues.

Justice Hill Scores The Ravens Lone Touchdown In Loss

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill salvaged his day by scoring the team's only touchdown of the day. He finished with seven carries for 32 yards and a score while also hauling in all four of his targets for 13 yards. Hill would have finished a bit higher in fantasy points if he didn't lose a fumble as well. He didn't see as many attempts on the ground as his counterpart Gus Edwards, but he was the only backfield member to see any targets in the passing game. As long as Edwards sees more snaps and ground work, Hill will remain a low-end flex option with more appeal in PPR formats.

Justice Hill Active In Week 5

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill (foot, hamstring), who was listed as questionable to play in Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, is officially active on Sunday. Hill returned from a turf-toe injury in the Week 4 win over the Cleveland Browns, but he played just seven offensive snaps and saw three carries for 33 yards. Gus Edwards will continue to work as Baltimore's lead back, but Hill should see more action this weekend. Still, Hill is extremely hard to trust as an RB3/flex, even in deeper leagues. The 25-year-old has found the end zone twice in three games so far in 2023, but he's averaging a poor 3.8 yards per carry on 22 rushing attempts. Rookie Keaton Mitchell (shoulder) who was questionable to return from Injured Reserve on Sunday, won't make his NFL debut yet.

Justice Hill, Keaton Mitchell Questionable For Week 5

Baltimore Ravens running backs Justice Hill (foot, hamstring) and Keaton Mitchell (shoulder) are both questionable to play in Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Hill got in two limited practices before being a full-go on Friday, so he should be available for the second straight week. Meanwhile, the rookie Mitchell has seen two full practices this week as he looks to make his NFL debut after spending the first four games of the year on Injured Reserve. In Hill's return in Week 4 from turf toe, he saw just three carries for 33 yards. The 25-year-old does have two touchdowns in his three games in 2023, but he's been incredibly inefficient and will likely be fighting for scraps with Melvin Gordon III behind Gus Edwards yet again this weekend.

Justice Hill Continues To Be Limited

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill (foot, hamstring) was limited in practice for the second straight day this week on Thursday. Hill missed the Week 3 game while dealing with turf toe, but he returned in the Week 4 win over the Cleveland Browns but played just seven offensive snaps behind Gus Edwards in a blowout win. Hill should be able to play in Week 5 against the division-rival Pittsburgh Steelers, even if he's listed as questionable, but right now the 25-year-old hasn't done enough to warrant flex consideration from fantasy managers. Hill is averaging a career-low 3.8 yards per carry and has 83 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in three games, adding three receptions for 12 yards.

Justice Hill Limited In Wednesday’s Practice

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill (foot/hamstring) was a limited participant in the team's Wednesday practice with multiple injuries. Hill played in the Ravens' 28-3 win over the Cleveland Browns in Week 4 but saw minimal work on the ground. He played a season-low seven snaps on Sunday as he worked his way back from a turf toe issue. Hill will have two more opportunities to practice in full before Week 5. However, running back Gus Edwards is likely to be the lead back once again if both players suit up. Hill might see a lower workload due to his injuries.

Justice Hill Officially Suiting Up Sunday

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill (foot) is officially active for Week 4 versus the Cleveland Browns. He had been listed as questionable, but the expectation was that he would play after practicing in full on Friday. Hill totaled 53 scrimmage yards on 14 touches back in Week 2, but he remains behind Gus Edwards on the depth chart and therefore should be viewed as an RB4 in fantasy football.

Justice Hill Expected To Play Sunday

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill (toe), who is listed as questionable to play in Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday due to turf toe, is expected to play, according to sources. Melvin Gordon III is also likely to get another call-up to the active roster from the practice squad to serve as RB depth behind Hill and Gus Edwards. Hill did not play in the Week 3 overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts, but it looks like he'll end his absence at just one game and return to complement Edwards in Baltimore's backfield this weekend. Although Hill has two rushing touchdowns in two games in 2023, he's also averaging a measly 2.6 yards on 19 carries. Edwards is the more interesting fantasy play as an RB3/flex in a tough matchup on the road.

Justice Hill Questionable For Week 4

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill (foot) is listed as questionable to play on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns in Week 4. Hill didn't practice Wednesday, was limited on Thursday, and put in a full practice on Friday, so he figures to have a good shot at returning after missing the Week 3 overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts due to turf toe. Gus Edwards was cleared from his concussion and will play against Cleveland, so even if Hill is able to return, he'll have to share backfield work with Edwards. If he misses a second straight game, Melvin Gordon III will back up Edwards once again. Hill has two touchdowns in 2023, but he's also averaging a weak 2.6 yards per carry.

Sep 29, 2023 3:53 PM EST

Justice Hill Back At Practice

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill (foot, toe) made a return to practice on Thursday. Hill is dealing with turf toe that forced him to sit out of the Week 3 overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He did not practice on Wednesday, but his return to the field should give him a chance to make his return for a Week 4 date with the division-rival Cleveland Browns on the road this Sunday. J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) is done for the year, so Hill will have a bigger role the rest of the way alongside Gus Edwards as long as he's healthy. If the 25-year-old RB returns this weekend, he'll be in play as an RB3/flex in PPR leagues. Through two games this year, he has 19 carries for 50 yards (2.6 yards per attempt) and two touchdowns while catching three passes for 12 yards.

Justice Hill Working On The Side On Wednesday

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill (foot) missed the Week 3 contest against the Indianapolis Colts with a foot injury. On Wednesday, the 25-year-old was spotted working on a side field during the team's practice. With J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) out for the year, Hill is in line to see a healthy workload alongside Gus Edwards and Melvin Gordon III if he can play in Week 4. Baltimore draws a tough matchup with the fierce Cleveland Browns' defense this week. Cleveland held Derrick Henry to just 20 rushing yards and limited the Titans to just 94 yards of total offense last week. That said, all Ravens running backs are risky fantasy options in this spot.

Justice Hill Ruled Out With Turf Toe

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill (toe) didn't practice all week and has been officially ruled out for Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts. Hill picked up turf toe in the Week 2 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in his first game with a bigger role due to J.K. Dobbins' season-ending Achilles injury. Turf-toe injuries can be pretty painful, so there's no guarantee Hill will be ready to roll for a Week 4 contest on the road against the Cleveland Browns next Sunday, Oct. 1. With Hill out, Gus Edwards should handle an even heavier workload and now has clear RB2 upside in a nice matchup against Indy. Melvin Gordon III will serve as Edwards' clear backup. The Ravens also signed Kenyan Drake this week for more RB insurance.

Sep 22, 2023 2:57 PM EST

Justice Hill Still Missing From Practice

Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill (toe) missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday. Hill picked up turf toe in the Week 2 win over the Cincinnati Bengals and is in danger of missing the Week 3 contest this Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. With J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) already out for the season, Baltimore's backfield is getting dangerously thin. Fantasy managers that were planning to use the 25-year-old Hill in a flex spot this weekend should probably be looking for other options at this point. If Hill is unable to play against Indy, Gus Edwards should have an even bigger backfield role with veteran Melvin Gordon III backing him up. Check back on Friday for Hill's official injury designation heading into Sunday's contest.
