Tyreek Hill Injury Update Points to Elite Fantasy Outlook in Week 13 Matchup With Raiders

Kansas City Chiefs v Tennessee Titans

Kansas City Chiefs star wide receiver Tyreek Hill let fantasy football owners down in Week 11 when he made it through only seven snaps before a hamstring injury ended his night.

The Chiefs were on bye in Week 12, though, giving Hill an extra week to recover, and it looks like he's going to be a full-go for his team's Week 13 matchup with the Oakland Raiders, making him one of the week's top WR plays.

With both Hill and superstar QB Patrick Mahomes banged up this year, we haven't had many chances to see this KC offense at full strength.

The last full game the duo played together led to fireworks though, with Hill catching an absurd 11-of-19 targets for 157 yards and one touchdown. The only other time they both played at least half the snaps in a game together this season was back in Week 6, when Hill (despite being limited to 51 percent snaps in his return from injury) turned 10 targets into five receptions, 80 yards and two touchdowns.

They'll also get to attack a dreamy matchup in Week 13, as the Raiders have allowed the NFL's fifth-most passing yards per game, most recently getting shredded for 315 yards and two touchdowns by Sam Darnold and the New York Jets.

Hill may be flying under the radar a bit since he'll be returning from an injury and hasn't shared the field with Mahomes much this year, but assuming he does end up as a full-go against the Raiders, Hill sits at WR2 in our Week 13 PPR fantasy football rankings.
