Jeremy Hill has rushed for over 2,700 yards during his three-year career. More importantly, he has averaged 10 touchdowns per season. Hill will have a role in Cincinatti this season, but it's yet to be determined exactly what that role entails, other than the exception he will once again be the goal-line back. This means the touchdowns should continue to come.
After an outstanding rookie season, Hill's numbers have been average overall. What's more worrisome is the three legitimate running backs on Cincinnati's roster and how their touches will be divvied up. Hill's yards per carry average has dropped from 5.1 his rookie to season to 3.8 in 2016, hurting Cincinnati as a whole.
2017 Bottom Line
When the Bengals drafted Joe Mixon, it was a warning to Hill. Although he could be the starter when Week 1 roles around, he won't be a 20 carry per game guy. And odds are Mixon will be the main back at some point this season. Hill is being drafted around the 11th-12th round with an ADP of 124. This value is pretty spot on, as he will most likely be an RB3 or flex-type player this season.
