Player Outlook
Although the Jets have reportedly expressed some interest in Hilliard, he remains a free agent at the time of this publication. Even if he makes an NFL roster, Hilliard has an unlikely path to Fantasy relevance outside of the deepest PPR leagues as a pure passing-downs back.

  • Dontrell Hilliard: Still available

    Hilliard (neck) remains a free agent a week before the start of NFL training camps, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. Hilliard went into last season as Tennessee's passing-down back and caught a pair of TD passes Week 1, but he was mostly quiet thereafter and eventually missed the final four games with a neck injury that sent him to injured reserve. He did well with his limited touches, averaging 6.6 yards on 22 carries and 6.8 yards on 26 targets, so the 28-year-old should at least get the chance to compete for a backup role this summer if he's healthy and wants to continue his career.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Lands on IR

    Hilliard (neck) has been placed on IR, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Hilliard, who suffered a neck injury in Week 14, is thus slated to miss the rest of the regular season. In a corresponding move, Julius Chestnut was signed to the Titans' active roster to provide the team with added backfield depth behind Derrick Henry and Hassan Haskins.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Won't play Week 15

    Hilliard (neck) won't play Sunday against the Chargers, per coach Mike Vrabel, Turron Davenport of ESPN reports. Hilliard being ruled out so early in the week suggests the change-of-pace running back could be looking at an extended absence. He'll sit out Week 15 at a minimum, leaving Julius Chestnut as Tennessee's likely passing down option against the Chargers. Chestnut caught both of his targets for eight yards in the Week 14 loss to Jacksonville after Hilliard got hurt.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Exits Sunday's game

    Hilliard was forced out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a neck injury, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. With Hilliard sidelined and Hassan Haskins (hip) inactive Sunday, practice squad elevation Julius Chestnut is on hand to back up Derrick Henry and contribute as a returner versus Jacksonville.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Catches two passes

    Hilliard rushed the ball once for two yards in Sunday's 35-10 loss to the Eagles. He added two receptions on two targets for 14 yards. Hilliard continued to work minimally behind Derrick Henry, and he now has exactly one rushing attempt in four of his last seven games. He did manage multiple receptions for the second consecutive game, though that's resulted in only 17 combined yards. Hilliard has value as the likely lead back if Henry were to become unavailable, though he can't be projected to get much work in the meantime.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Limited to 19 total yards

    Hilliard rushed the ball twice for 16 yards in Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Bengals. He added three receptions for three yards. Hilliard has had a few splash performances this season thanks to his ability to find the end zone, but his volume has remained minimal while working behind Derrick Henry. That was no exception against the Bengals on Sunday, and Hilliard has now seen two or fewer rushing attempts in eight of 10 games on the campaign. His three receptions were his highest mark since Week 5, though he had minimal production with that opportunity.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Finds end zone in win

    Hilliard ran the ball once for four yards in Thursday's 27-17 win over the Packers. He added one reception for 14 yards and a touchdown. Hilliard saw only two touches, each of which came within the Titans' first two offensive possessions. However, he made good use of his limited opportunity by finding the end zone on a14-yard reception to cap Tennessee's first drive. Hilliard now has four touchdowns on the season despite racking up only 19 rushing attempts and 16 catches across nine games.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Minimal role in victory

    Hilliard recorded one rush for two yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Broncos. He added one reception on two targets for six yards. Ryan Tannehill took to the air 36 times, typically a game script that should benefit Hilliard. Instead, he saw only two touches and made no meaningful contribution on offense. While he's had some spike performances, Hilliard is primarily the handcuff to Derrick Henry.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Practices fully Thursday

    Hilliard (groin) turned in a full practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Hilliard took only limited reps in the Titans' first Week 10 practice Wednesday, but his advancement to full participation a day later clears the way for him to play Sunday against the Broncos. He'll likely work in his typical complementary role behind top back Derrick Henry, with most of Hilliard's opportunities coming on passing downs or on the few occasions Henry requires a breather on early downs.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Limited at practice

    Hillard was listed as a limited participant during Wednesday's walk-through practice due to a groin issue, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Hilliard logged 16 snaps on offense while working behind top back Derrick Henry (30 snaps, 17 carries) in this past Sunday's 20-17 overtime loss to the Chiefs. In the process, Hilliard carried three times for 12 yards and added one reception for minus-4 yards. As long as Henry remains available, Hilliard's complementary role will continue to yield little fantasy production.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Minimal role against Chiefs

    Hilliard rushed the ball three times for 12 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Chiefs. He added one reception for minus-4 yards. Hilliard's production has fluctuated throughout the season, which makes sense given his backup role to Derrick Henry. Sunday night's effort was one of his worst of the season, as he managed only four touches and didn't have a gain of longer than five yards. Despite the disappointing performance, Hilliard should maintain a relatively consistent role in the passing game, as he now has at least one reception in six of his seven games on the campaign.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Week 9 Adds (RB Preview)

    If there was ever a week to count on the Titans' passing downs back it's the week they're 12.5-point underdogs. Hilliard has been insanely efficient this year, averaging 9.4 yards per touch, and the Chiefs have given up more receiving yards per game to running backs than any other team in the NFL.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Week 9 Waiver Priority List

    Hilliard is another running back to stash as the backup to Derrick Henry. Hilliard would be a starter in all leagues if Henry were to miss any time, and Hilliard has scored at least 10 PPR points in two of his past three games in tandem with Henry. He should be added in all leagues for at least 5 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Big numbers in backup role

    Hilliard carried the ball eight times for 83 yards and caught his only target for 12 yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Texans. The Titans' rushing game did almost all the work in the win, and while Derrick Henry dominated the Texans again with 219 yards and two TDs, Hilliard put up impressive numbers of his own on limited touches and set a new season high in scrimmage yards. While he won't get to face the Houston front seven every week, Tennessee's No. 2 back could be productive again in Week 9 against Kansas City if Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is back under center and Hilliard sees more usage in the passing game.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Scripted out of win

    Hilliard carried the ball once for four yards in Sunday's 19-10 win over the Colts. He did not haul in either of his targets. As has been the case this season, Hilliard played a minimal role in the Titans' rushing attack. However, he was also an afterthought as a pass catcher due to game script and suffered through his first game without a reception as a result. Hilliard has still tallied at least three receptions in three of his five games this season.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Four catches against Colts

    Hilliard recorded four receptions on four targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Colts. Hilliard didn't record a carry, as Derrick Henry was the only member of the Titans' backfield to have a rushing attempt. However, Hilliard continued to have a significant role in the offense as a pass catcher, and he now has multiple receptions in two of his three games on the campaign.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Only three touches in win

    Hilliard rushed the ball twice for 14 yards in Sunday's 24-22 win over the Raiders. He added one reception for 30 yards. Hilliard was on the field for only 14 offensive snaps as Derrick Henry dominated the work out of the Titans' backfield. Even so, Hilliard managed to impress with a 30-yard reception late in the third quarter that pushed the Titans out from their own goal line. While limited in his role, Hilliard has recorded four receptions for 91 yards in two games this season.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Ready for Week 3 action

    Hilliard (hamstring) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. After sitting out Week 2 prep and eventually not playing this past Monday at Buffalo, Hilliard returned to the practice field this week, following up limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday with all activity Friday. He's thus ready to resume his role as the direct backup to workhorse running back Derrick Henry, which resulted in five touches for 69 yards from scrimmage and two receiving TDs on 11 offensive snaps against the Giants in the season opener.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Remains limited Thursday

    Hilliard (hamstring) remained limited at Thursday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. Following back-to-back limited sessions, Hilliard will need to practice fully Friday in order to avoid approaching Sunday's game against the Raiders with an injury designation. If he's out or limited this weekend, Hassan Haskins once again would be in line to see added backfield work for the Titans in Week 3 behind Derrick Henry.

  • Titans' Dontrell Hilliard: Remains sidelined

    Hilliard (hamstring) wasn't spotted at practice Wednesday, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports. After sitting sitting out this past Monday's loss to the Bill, Hilliard's status for Sunday's contest against the Raiders is cloudy. If he's unable to suit up this weekend, Hassan Haskins would once again be in line to see complementary backfield work for the Titans behind Derrick Henry.
