Hill over Thompson for me.
I'd lean the other way on that one.
Hill not only has 3 goal line proficient RBs to compete with, but Lamar Jackson is going to get his share of rushing scores too. And... the Ravens, as a rushing team, are going to score far less TDs as a team this year than the Chiefs.
Thompson already looks like the best RB on KC's Roster. He's already shown, at a small sample size of course, that he can do it all.
If one believes that Thompson is going to be a backup to Damian Williams all season long i understand the hesitation to fade him.
I think Thompson is going to emerge as KC's starting RB sooner rather than later, and that Damian Williams will move back into the role that matches his contract and career arch; a committee change of pace / spell RB. I think that once the season starts, we're going to here commentators compare #25 to Brian Westbrook every game and praise Andy Reid for his draft prowess... as Thompson is scampering up and down the field for huge numbers.
