2024 Fantasy Outlook
Hill is coming off his most productive NFL season since being a fourth-round pick in 2019, but his 2023 numbers could be his ceiling. The Ravens brought in Derrick Henry this offseason, giving them a true bell cow after years of deploying a committee, and the former Titan is used to handling a huge workload. Baltimore may not give him 300-plus carries the way Tennessee did, but he should see a lot more than what Gus Edwards got last year. Hill will compete for backup snaps with Keaton Mitchell once the latter is fully recovered from his ACL tear. Read Past Outlooks

Joined by No. 1 option in backfield
RBBaltimore Ravens
March 13, 2024
Hill will likely handle a secondary role after RB Derrick Henry agreed to a two-year contract with the Ravens on Tuesday, Brian Wacker of the Baltimore Sun reports.
ANALYSIS
Though they allowed Gus Edwards and J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) to reach free agency, the Ravens moved quickly to add a true No. 1 running back in Henry, whose size and power will complement Lamar Jackson's elusiveness. After Dobbins went down with a season-ending injury Week 1, Hill stepped into an elevated role out of the backfield and finished with career highs in carries (84) and rushing yards (387) while scoring three times on the ground. The addition of Henry will make it tough for Hill to replicate that rushing workload, though his pass-catching skills should make him the top option on passing downs, at least until Keaton Mitchell (knee) completes his recovery from the torn ACL he suffered in December.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Likely to open season as No. 2 back
RBBaltimore Ravens
May 22, 2024
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Keaton Mitchell to return from a torn ACL until "sometime during the season," leaving Hill as the favorite to begin the campaign as the top backup to Derrick Henry.
ANALYSIS
In Mitchell's absence, Hill's biggest competition for the second spot on the running back depth chart will come from rookie fifth-round draft pick Rasheen Ali, but Ali is currently dealing with a biceps injury. Hill displayed promising versatility in 2023, rushing for 387 yards and three touchdowns while adding 206 yards and another score. Considering that Baltimore has often taken a committee approach to its backfield in recent years along with the fact that Henry is now 30 years old, Hill would likely be poised for a prominent role as long as he maintains the top backup spot.

After having dealt with injuries and players being signed or drafted over him, Hill turned in his best professional season in 2022. He averaged 5.3 yards per carry over 49 attempts and secured all 12 of his targets in his first season back from an Achilles injury. Only Kenyan Drake, who is now a free agent, played more backfield snaps for the Ravens than Hill in 2022. The important context behind that is that J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards were both eased into action after missing 2021 with their own season-ending injuries. Now that both are further removed from ACL issues, Hill projects to break camp as the No.3 running back on the depth chart. His main competition for a roster spot will be undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell.
Hill enters his fourth season with an uphill battle to fantasy relevance. JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards are set to return from season-ending injuries suffered in the 2021 preseason, and Baltimore has added Mike Davis and sixth-rounder Tyler Badie this offseason. And that's before noting that Hill suffered an Achilles tear of his own that is a difficult injury to come back from for a running back. The 2019 fourth-rounder is on the last year of his rookie deal, and he may get a brief opening early in the season with Edwards out for at least the first four games and Dobbins unlikely to handle a huge workload right out of the gate. Still, it looks like Davis is ahead of Hill among Baltimore's depth back.
Hill was in danger of entering his third season as an afterthought in the Baltimore backfield, even with Mark Ingram gone. The Ravens ran the ball a league-high 555 times in 2020, with Lamar Jackson, J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards accounting for 77.2 percent of those carries. Ingram saw a 12 percent rushing share, and that might have been Hill's ceiling as far as workload projection, had Edwards and Dobbins stayed healthy. However, just when it looked like Hill would carve out a role in the team's offense after Dobbins was placed on IR, reports surfaced in advance of Week 1 that Hill apparently suffered a serious Achilles' injury.
Last season, Hill came in as a fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma State and was expected to inject the Ravens' backfield with a dynamic element it lacked from big bodies Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards. But the rookie barely saw the field as Lamar Jackson provided that electricity instead. Hill's top-shelf speed (4.40 40-yard dash) and elusiveness could make him intriguing if he gets on the field, but the Ravens did not trust him on passing downs and rarely used him as a runner before the late stages of blowouts. The addition of J.K. Dobbins in the second round of this year's draft pushes Hill even farther from relevance, but if he can show enough to hang onto a roster spot, things might brighten considerably for Hill in 2021. Ingram and Edwards could both be in different uniforms at that point, potentially leaving Hill as Dobbins' top backup. For this season, however, he needs to improve significantly as a receiver - or have the Baltimore backfield gutted by injuries - to make any sort of impact.
Hill might provide a perfect example of the way NFL front offices play follow-the-leader. A year ago, Phillip Lindsay went undrafted out of Colorado. In 2019, Hill - a player with similar size, skills and college stats out of Oklahoma State - gets nabbed in the fourth round. While Hill's 4.40 40-yard dash at the combine stands out, his top asset is dynamite elusiveness and balance. Making defenders miss seems like second nature to him, even if poor vision often ends up costing him running room after the first or second juke. Hill also has the right tools to develop into a useful receiver, though he managed just 304 receiving yards in three seasons at OSU. Where he fits into a Ravens backfield that just added Mark Ingram remains to be seen, but Hill adds an element of open-field danger that neither of the holdovers on the depth chart, Gus Edwards and Kenneth Dixon, brings to the table.
