Hill only lasted a couple of days before getting cut, meaning he was likely only signed as an insurance policy for the running back room in this unique offseason. Hill could turn up as a veteran option somewhere else given the uncertainty surrounding this season, but he is unlikely to pay fantasy dividends as he has not played in the NFL since 2018 and is coming off a torn ACL.
Running back Jeremy Hill says he has signed with the Las Vegas Raiders, announcing the move in a tweet.
He last appeared in an NFL game in the 2018 season, when he tore his ACL in the New England Patriots' season-opening victory over the Houston Texans. He was placed on injured reserve and missed the rest of that season. He did not play in the NFL last season.
The loss of Hill means possibly even bigger fantasy potential for Michel when he returns, which could be this week. Hill had four carries on the day fore 25 yards before leaving. Burkhead had 18.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 1. Michel may be able to play in Week 1, but he’s likely to take a backseat to Rex Burkhead, James White and perhaps Jeremy Hill as well. The questionable tag doesn’t help.
