Traded to Miami

Hill has been traded to the Dolphins for five draft picks: a 2022 1st-round pick (No. 29), a 2nd-round pick (No. 50) and a 4th-round pick, as well as 4th- and 6th-round picks in the 2023 draft, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The Dolphins will sign Hill to a 4-year, $120 million contract after the trade.

Could be traded?

The Chiefs have given Hill's agent permission to seek a trade, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Movement toward a contract extension reportedly has stalled, with both Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network suggesting Hill could now be traded to a team that's willing to pay him what he wants. The 28-year-old is under contract with the Chiefs for just one more season, and he presumably a new deal that will place him among the two or three highest-paid wide receivers in the league. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Dolphins and Jets are in talks with the Chiefs, while Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com notes the Chiefs are expected to seek "two first-round picks and more" in exchange for the star wideout.

Could land extension

The Chiefs and Hill's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, have reportedly exchanged contract proposals this week, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Analysis: With Hill -- who is slated to count $20.685 million against the salary cap in 2022 -- approaching the final season of a three-year extension he signed in 2019, the two sides seem amenable to crafting a deal to keep the wideout in Kansas City for the long term. Moreover, the report notes that an extension for Hill would likely feature a structure aimed at lowering his cap hit this year, which would help the team's ability to bolster its nucleus of talent on offense, which currently also includes franchise QB Patrick Mahomes and star TE Travis Kelce.

Opens scoring in AFCCG loss

Hill caught seven of 10 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 overtime AFC Championship Game loss to the Bengals.

Analysis: Hill was instrumental in Kansas City's hot start, as he scored the game's first points with a 10-yard touchdown and the Chiefs went on to take a 21-3 lead. The speedy wideout came close to scoring a second touchdown on one of the game's pivotal plays, but he was stopped at Cincinnati's one-yard line as the first half expired. Shockingly, that ended up being Hill's final touch of the afternoon, as he was blanked in the second half and overtime. Patrick Mahomes' final pass of the season was a deep ball to Hill down the sideline in overtime, which was batted away by one defender and intercepted by another. Despite this disappointing finish, Hill should resume his role as a key cog in one of the league's most fearsome offenses next year, and he'll be looking to extend a streak of five consecutive regular seasons with at least seven touchdowns.

Scores 64-yard TD late in wild win

Hill caught 11 of 13 targets for 150 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-36 overtime win over the Bills. He added one rushing attempt for minus-2 yards and a 45-yard punt return.

Analysis: Hill was tackled by the punter on his lone return of the game, saving a touchdown as the Chiefs ended up settling for a field goal. The speedster wouldn't be denied the end zone with just over a minute to play and the Chiefs down by three, as he found a seam in Buffalo's defense and raced down the field for a go-ahead 64-yard touchdown. The Bills answered with a touchdown of their own, but a 19-yard catch by Hill helped set up the game-tying field goal, and the Chiefs won it on the first drive of overtime. In the AFC Championship Game, Hill will face a Bengals defense that limited him to 40 receiving yards in the regular season.

Hits pay dirt in playoff win

Hill caught all five of his targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-21 win over the Steelers.

Analysis: Travis Kelce was the featured offensive weapon for Kansas City in this decisive victory -- as has been the case over the final stretch of the regular season -- but Hill still managed to produce a solid fantasy line despite failing to "go off." The speedy wideout has been a little more boom-or-bust than he has in previous seasons, likely due to defenses running tons of deep, two-safety formations and forcing the Chiefs' playmakers to work more underneath routes. Hill still possesses the ability to break off huge touchdowns on any given play, which will likely result in a DFS salary slightly higher than his recent play appears to be worth against the Bills next week.

Cleared for playoff opener

Hill (heel) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday night's playoff game against the Steelers.

Analysis: Hill was limited at practice Thursday, but his full participation in Friday's session sets the stage for Kansas City's playmaking wideout to be available for the team's postseason opener. As a result, Hill and tight end Travis Kelce will continue to profile as QB Patrick Mahomes' top passing targets this weekend. Through 17 regular season outings, Hill recorded a fantasy-friendly 111/1,239/9 stat line on 159 targets to go along with nine carries for 96 yards.

Jan 14, 2022 1:15 PM EST

Limited practice session Thursday

Hill (heel) was limited at practice Thursday.

Analysis: Hill was a full participant Wednesday, so it remains to be seen if his listed limitations are maintenance-related or indicative of a setback. Friday's final injury report will add some clarity on that front and if the wideout is able to to practice fully to close the week, he'd be in line to approach Sunday's playoff game against the Steelers minus an injury designation.

Jan 13, 2022 2:07 PM EST

Logs full practice Wednesday

Hill (heel) practiced fully Wednesday.

Analysis: Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com previously noted that Hill looked good during the media-access portion of Wednesday's practice, a notion echoed by coach Andy Reid, per Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star. With a full session under his belt, Hill is slated to play in Sunday night's playoff opener against the Steelers and in the process the star wideout should see plenty of targets this weekend after having his snaps limited in Week 18.

Jan 12, 2022 1:43 PM EST

Practicing Wednesday

Hill (heel) was present for Wednesday's practice, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

Analysis: It remains to be seen how Kansas City classifies Hill's participation level, but based on his observation of the session, Sweeney suggests that the wideout looks good to go as Sunday's playoff opener against the Steelers approaches. In the Chiefs' regular-season finale against the Broncos this past weekend, Hill's heel issue limited him to just 14 snaps on offense.

Jan 12, 2022 10:10 AM EST

Expected to be fine

Coach Andy Reid said Monday that the team expects Hill (heel) to be ready for Sunday's wild-card matchup against Pittsburgh, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hill dealt with heel soreness during Saturday's 28-24 win over the Broncos, although it appears as though his limited role was mainly precautionary. The Chiefs will likely monitor his status during practice ahead of the playoffs, but it appears as though the 27-year-old is on track to play Sunday.

Struggles through heel issue

Hill recorded one reception on three targets for two yards in Saturday's 28-24 win over the Broncos.

Analysis: Hill played an extremely limited role in the game while dealing with a heel injury. However, his lone catch was impactful, as it resulted in a converted fourth down attempt on a drive that resulted in a field goal. After the contest, coach Andy Reid only stated that Hill has a sore heel, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports. Meanwhile, teammate Mecole Hardman had a more optimistic view, stating that Hill was held out of the game primarily for precautionary reasons, as reported by James Palmer of NFL Network. Given Hill's key role in the Kansas City offense, his health will be very important to monitor throughout the week, particularly if Tennessee wins to secure the top seed in the AFC on Sunday.

Quiet game despite 10 targets

Hill caught six of 10 targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Bengals. He added two yards on his lone rushing attempt.

Analysis: After totaling only 19 yards in his return from the reserve/COVID-19 list last week, Hill led the Chiefs in targets but didn't make much of his opportunities. He almost hauled in a deep pass just before halftime, but Bengals safety Vonn Bell knocked the ball out of Hill's hands. The speedster will look to get back on track before the playoffs with a bounce-back performance in the season finale against Denver.

Jan 2, 2022 2:25 PM EST

Quiet day in win

Hill caught two passes for 19 yards on two targets against Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Analysis: It's possible that Hill's inability to practice this week (illness) left him with a decreased presence in the game plan, though the ease with which the Chiefs won (36-10) might have also played a role. The Chiefs put the Steelers away easily even without using Hill, but to beat the Bengals in Week 17 the Chiefs will likely need to reappoint Hill as their workhorse receiver. With that, a return to high-level fantasy production for Hill becomes more likely than not.

Comes off COVID-19 list

The Chiefs activated Hill (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

Analysis: Hill was placed on the COVID-19 list Tuesday after testing positive for the virus, but he's cleared league protocols and will be available to Kansas City's offense Sunday against the Steelers. As for tight end Travis Kelce (illness), he remains on the COVID-19 list but has chance to gain clearance to play ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff.

Dec 25, 2021 1:04 PM EST

Reportedly set to be cleared

Hill (illness) has reportedly been cleared to play Sunday against the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: We'll await confirmation from the team, which would come in the form of Hill being officially activated off the reserve/COVID-19 in advance of Saturday afternoon's transaction deadline. Meanwhile, Schefter adds that tight end Travis Kelce has not been cleared at this stage, but "still has a shot" for that to happen prior to Sunday's contest.

Dec 25, 2021 11:34 AM EST

Tests positive for virus

Hill was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday after testing positive for the virus, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: He was one of seven Chiefs to test positive for the virus Tuesday, bringing the number of players on the organization's reserve/COVID-19 list up to 14. If vaccinated, Hill will still have a chance at being cleared for Sunday's game against the Steelers, but his availability will hinge on him being asymptomatic of the virus. Star tight end Travis Kelce (illness) also tested positive Monday, so quarterback Patrick Mahomes could be without his top two pass catchers Week 16.

Dec 21, 2021 2:54 PM EST

Headed for COVID-19 list

The Chiefs plan to place Hill on the reserve/COVID-19 list later Tuesday, Adam Schefter and Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Cornerback Rashad Fenton and tight end Blake Bell are also expected to go on the list Tuesday, joining six other players on the 53-man roster. At this stage, it's unknown whether Hill tested positive for the virus or if he was deemed a close contact of an infected person, but either way, he won't be a lock to be activated prior to Sunday's game against the Steelers. If neither Hill nor star tight end Travis Kelce -- who tested positive for the virus Monday -- is cleared to come off the list this week, quarterback Pat Mahomes would have few reliable weapons at his disposal.

Season-best catch total in win

Hill secured 12 of 13 targets for 148 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' 34-28 overtime win over the Chargers on Thursday night.

Analysis: Hill's catch total paced the Chiefs on the night and also served as a season-best figure for the explosive speedster. The reception that broke his previous high of 11 catches this season came on a 14-yard grab on the game-winning drive in overtime that he made after spending some time on the sideline late in the fourth quarter and early in the extra period getting stretched out for what appeared to be lower-leg cramps. Hill's explosive outing included his first 100-yard effort since Week 4 and only his third of the season, a performance he'll aim to build on against an inconsistent Steelers secondary during a Week 16 home clash a week from Sunday.

Dec 16, 2021 8:55 PM EST

Makes use of limited targets

Hill recorded four receptions on four targets for 76 yards in Sunday's 48-9 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: The Chiefs' offense didn't need to do much in the game, as they were up 21-0 by early in the second quarter. Between game script and the fact that Hill briefly left the game, as reported by Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com, he was limited to his lowest target total since Week 2. Even given those factors, Hill beat the Raiders' defense for receptions of 38, 19 and 10 yards to account for the majority of his production. With the Chargers on tap in Week 15, Kansas City figures to be in a closer contest that should create more volume for Hill and the rest of the team's offensive weapons.
