After missing a month due to a shoulder injury, it has been reported that wide receiver Tyreek Hill will be active for the Week 6 matchup against the Houston Texans. The playmaker's return figures to be a big boost for both the Chiefs and fantasy owners.

Hill's start to the season did not begin as he would have hoped, leaving with a shoulder injury just 12 snaps into the season. The emphasis for the Chiefs has been the shoulder's stability in a return, hoping the speedster would not be susceptible to further injury when he did return.

The return of the speedy Chiefs' receiver is huge for fantasy owners, with Hill being the top overall receiver in standard scoring leagues just a season ago. Last season, he accounted for a team-high 23 percent of KC's targets and his 37 percent share of the team's air yards was the sixth highest mark in the NFL.

Now officially active for Week 6, Hill should be considered a must-start on your fantasy team, especially in PPR formats, where we have him at WR10. He faces a positive matchup against a Houston defense that is giving up 270.4 passing yards per game (eighth-worst in NFL).
