Tyreek Hill played just seven snaps on Monday night before a hamstring injury forced him to the sideline, burning fantasy football owners who were counting on him.

The Kansas City Chiefs are on bye in Week 12 though, and it sounds like Hill won't have much trouble returning in time for a Week 13 matchup with the Oakland Raiders.

Hill has struggled to stay healthy this season, but he's continued to be a terrific fantasy producer when he has. Playing at least 50 percent of KC's offensive snaps in five games, he turned in an average of 23.0 PPR fantasy points per game from Week 6 to Week 10, averaging 6.2 receptions, 105.4 yards and 1.0 touchdown on 10.4 targets per game.

His healthy games with Patrick Mahomes at the helm were especially great, notching a combined 16 receptions, 237 yards and three TDs in two contests.

He will also return to a terrific matchup if he can suit up for Week 13, taking on an Oakland Raiders defense that has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to opposing wideouts this season.

Even though fantasy football owners got burned by Hill in Week 11, there's no way you can consider leaving him on the bench if he's starting in Week 13. He brings week-winning upside to any matchup, and that's not something you can afford to miss out on.
