Stephen Hill Fantasy Football 2013 Profile: Jets Will Use Big-Play WR
Name: Stephen Hill
Team: New York Jets
Position: Wide Receiver
Years Pro: 1
Draft stock: (Dropping) The Jets had talked about bringing in a top-notch wide receiver this offseason, but New York is apparently content with Stephen Hill and company. Fantasy football owners remember Hill’s first career NFL game where he caught two touchdowns, but they also remember his less-than impressive rookie campaign. All things considered, the Jets’ offense is so poor that most are shying away from Hill.
2012 fantasy impact: Hill’s aforementioned rookie debut shocked everyone, but the hype was short lived and injuries would soon keep the Jets’ wide receiver at bay. Even still, Hill managed to finish the year with 252 receiving yards, which isn’t half bad considering Mark Sanchez was his quarterback.
Best-case scenario: Despite poor quarterback play, the second-year wide receiver discovers himself in 2013 and more importantly stays healthy for the duration of the season.
Worst-case scenario: Jeremy Kerley and Santonio Holmes stunt Hill’s growth, who still struggles with non-vertical routes. Once again, the Jets’ wide receiving core is disappointing.
Where you should draft him: A hot commodity coming out of college, Hill’s knack for the big play still exists. However, the Jets vertical passing game leaves a lot to be desired, so don’t snag Hill until at least the 14th round.
