Why Jeremy Hill is a potential fantasy steal

Jeremy Hill came in at No. 63 (RB23) in our consensus Fantasy 101, and there was quite a bit of dissent among the rankers. For example, one of my colleagues had him listed all the way down at No. 90, while I was actually highest on Hill at No. 43 overall (RB18). Am I too high on Hill?

Perhaps, but let’s look at some key numbers in Hill’s first two pro seasons:

2015 2014
PFF elusive rating 23.6 (45th) 40.5 (17th)
Rushing grade 3.1 (28th) -1.6 (40th)
Yco/ATT 2.1 2.7
Snaps 43.80% 46.50%
Yards per carry 3.6 5
Fumbles 3 2
Touches 238 249
Fantasy rank T-13th 10th

*rankings based on players playing a minimum 25%  snaps

What to observe here

  • While Hill’s elusive rating dipped in his second season, his PFF rushing grade actually improved from his rookie campaign.
