Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis practiced Monday


Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis practiced Monday

It looks like the bye week -- and the three preceding weeks off -- did Chiefs running back Peyton Hillis @thepeytonhillis some good. Hillis hasn't played nor practiced since suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 3, but he was present at practice Monday. For the season, Hillis has 21 carries for 93 yards and has caught five passes for 33 yards.

Fantasy Analysis:

With a practice this early in the week, he seemingly has a good chance of playing this week against the Raiders and will take over the backup duties once again behind Jamaal Charles @jcharles25. Shaun Draughn @2ShaunDraughn0 has been doing Hillis' job for the last few weeks, but he hasn't done much. Hillis might be a threat to Charles' carry count, especially considering how the Chiefs have frankly overworked their star runner in a few games and may want to give him some more rest in the season's second half. But Hillis isn't worth picking up in fantasy leagues right now unless you own Charles and want his handcuff.
