The Kansas City Chiefs have been one of the NFL's best teams over the last half-decade or so. No other team has more than the 60 wins that the Chiefs have put up since 2016, which goes to show how dominant they've been. One player who has had first-hand experience in helping Kansas City achieve this success is sixth-year wideout Tyreek Hill.

With another season of perennial NFL MVP-candidate Patrick Mahomes throwing him the ball, Hill certainly has the potential to finish as one of the top-five wide receivers in the upcoming fantasy football season.

Tyreek Hill Fantasy Outlook

There aren't many NFL wideouts who've been as consistent as Hill has been over the past four seasons. He's notched three campaigns of at least 1,100 receiving yards since 2017 and was on pace to do it again in 2019 had he not missed four games due to a shoulder injury.

Hill, once again, looked impressive in the 2020 NFL season. He finished the year with 87 receptions for 1,276 receiving yards and a whopping 15 touchdowns — which ranked eighth and second around the league, respectively. The fact that he'll have Patrick Mahomes — who threw for a league-leading 316.0 passing yards per game — throwing to him again only solidifies the fact that Hill likely has one of the highest floors and ceilings out of most wideouts.

One thing that'll be interesting to see is how opposing defenses approach Hill. He's one of the fastest players in the league, which means defenders usually have trouble covering him on the run. However, the Chiefs lost No. 2 WR Sammy Watkins over the offseason and are in the process of figuring out who'll line up opposite of Hill.

While third-year wideout Mecole Hardman seems to be the guy to take the job, we haven't seen how things will look during an actual game yet. Until someone emerges as the secondary option, Hill could see additional coverage. Nevertheless, he's still talented enough to produce if that's the situation he finds himself in.

Tyreek Hill ADP

Hill is currently listed as WR1 on Fantasy Pros with an average draft position of 9.7. Meanwhile, he's listed as WR3 on The Duel's fantasy football rankings.

There's no reason not to expect another top-five WR season from the Chiefs' speedster.
