2014 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Jul-14-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
The strongest aspect of Stephen Hill's game is his excellent downfield speed. This has not yet translated well for fantasy owners. Hill is a big, fast receiver that was a star at the 2012 NFL Combine. The issue is he runs poor routes and has terrible hands. The Jets drafted Hill in the second round and Hill has not caught more than 30 passes in a season. Hill had every opportunity last year to be the Jets' top guy and never came close to fulfilling that role. Even standing 6-foot-4, Hill only caught one touchdown in 12 games last season. His durability is a bit of an issue as wekk. He has missed at least four games in each season with the Jets. Hill has little to no fantasy value and should only be a consideration in very deep leagues. He is barely one of the Jets' five best receivers.
Editor's note: If the planets align and Hill finally gets it together, he has the athleticism to be a fantasy starter. Though, that's asking a lot from a guy who struggles in just about every way when it comes to being a receiver (except for running fast).
Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill may finally be tapping into his potential after two tremendously disappointing seasons. The former second-round pick has received a lot of praise in the spring and summer, and that continued Thursday when offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg admitted that Hill is having an "outstanding" camp.
Hill has caught just 45 passes through two injury-shortened seasons. But Hill's knees are reportedly healthy, and he is running with the first-team offense in camp.
Now Hill has to make good on the compliments. He has highly coveted size and speed, but it hasn't translated in the results yet. Some of that is due to the Jets' problems at quarterback, some of that is due to injuries, and some of that is due to his pair of inconsistent hands. But Hill has the physical abilities to be a star wideout. If his body and Geno Smith give him a chance, Hill might have a small breakout season in 2014. He isn't on the re-draft radar right now, but Hill is a name to track during the exhibition season.
