Kansas City Chiefs’ receiver Tyreek Hill has once again asserted himself as not just the most dynamic receiver in the NFL, but the best receiver in the league — period. As we all know, Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill are at the top of the league’s list for the best Quarterback/Receiver duo. Tyreek’s ability to blaze downfield with his speed combined with Mahomes’ ability to launch deep shots goes to show that this duo can do just about anything. And hey, this leads to a lot of fantasy points! Hill’s week 12 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just about shows you why I believe he is the best fantasy player in all leagues. Hill had 13 catches on 15 targets for 269 yards and 3 touchdowns. Think about those numbers. Now think about the fact that he ran most of those up before halftime. Shall I say anything else?
With the mix of Tyreek’s superhuman speed and his crisp route running, he is simply unguardable one-on-one regardless of who the corner facing him is. It doesn’t matter what route he runs — every touch he receives has a chance to be a touchdown. They call him Cheetah for good reason.
Since Tyreek has entered the league in 2016 he has scored a total of 57 touchdowns… that is more than double the amount that star receivers like Julio Jones (26) and Keenan Allen (27) have since then. Those touchdown numbers are not going to stop anytime soon either as Tyreek already has 16 this season.

Many of us have the privilege of boasting that Tyreek carried our fantasy teams this year. He keeps you in the games that you shouldn’t be in. With Pat Mahomes as his quarterback, he is going to keep this up for many years to come. I would even go as far as to say I would pick Tyreek with next year’s #1 overall in redraft leagues. If you have him in dynasty then you my friend are one of the luckiest people in the world. I’d much rather overpay to acquire him than be forced to face him in the playoffs, I’ll tell you that.
