Hill will likely be more relevant the next couple weeks.

Agree. My top RB’s both have byes next 2 weeks

Dalvin Cook (bye week 12)
Chris Carson (bye week 11)
Singletary
Guice

Hunt is currently my RB4/5 depending on Guice’s health

So now while my friends are sleeping I’m trying to debate if I’d rather have him or Brian Hill down the stretch ...

I think Hunt will hold a little flex value, and of course carry the load if Chubb gets injured, but for your situation, I'd go Hill.

I'd consider dropping Guice and adding Hill.

Thanks Elm — I ended up dropping Buffalo DST. Have SFO — and will play them this week. Next week I’ll drop Rivers once Wilson is back and pickup another DST (maybe Buf) for those bad matchups we spoke of in other thread =)

Needed him for Week 11 in one league and claimed him with the #4 spot (non-FAAB league). Couldn't roster him in another league and didn't really need him; he went for a $5 bid. The latter league is more competitive and active, so I was a little surprised. I considered a $6 blocking bid and figured it'd be blown away for a team needing a fill-in RB2 if nothing else.

He went for $40 in one league and unclaimed in the other (to my surprise) I didn’t have much Faab left so went for Hunt, got him, and was able to pick up Hill for free this AM. Crazy. Hill will likely be in my flex this weekend

Curious who’s the guy if Hill falters ?

Probably the rook, Ollison.

Rotoworld's IAN HARTITZ wrote:Atlanta Falcons Backfield Breakdown

RB1: Devonta Freeman (63% snap rate, 16.8 opportunities per game)
RB2: Brian Hill (11%, 6.4)
RB3: Kenjon Barner (4%, 0.6)
RB4: Qadree Ollison (0%, 0)

Notes: Freeman (foot) is reportedly at risk of missing a week or two. Coach Dan Quinn said he's "confident" that Hill can handle a lead role if Freeman is ultimately sidelined.

Hill has earned the right to work as the offense's featured back if Freeman is ruled out for Week 11. He averaged an absurd 7.9 yards per carry in 10 games with the Falcons in 2018, and he's demonstrated the ability to function as a fairly efficient option on both the ground (28-101-1 rushing in 2019) as well as through the air (3-24-1 receiving) this season. Hill out-played Ito Smith (concussion, IR) to a fairly-alarming degree in the preseason.

Hill generally runs like the entire defense said something mean about one of his close friends or family members.

Hill deserves to be the week's most-popular addition on the waiver wire ahead of a smash spot against the Panthers' 32nd-ranked defense in DVOA against the run (Football Outsiders). Barner might steal some targets, while Ollison is a threat to get some early-down work, but all signs indicate Hill should be playing more than half of the offense's snaps as long as Freeman remains sidelined.

People may have once thought N.Chubb in lineups would automatically win them a championship.

But those managers never accounted for a runner as dynamic and elusive as B.Hill.

So this thread title is required to be changed, right?
'Brian Hill - ATL RB - League Winner'

Until in 1 or 2 weeks when he's on IR or back to back-up duties. :lol:

I don't think the loss of life in train wrecks is something to be minimized out joked about. Think of the person suffering PTSD from survivng one and happening across this post, or a family member of a train wreck casualty. Have a little empathy.
