Why Jeremy Hill is a potential fantasy steal

The Bengal RB struggled in 2015, but even with that, Mike Castiglione thinks he is going too low for 2016. He also has some notes on RB strategy in drafts.

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
