Peyton Hillis injury update: Probable but limited fantasy upside

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE

Peyton Hillis is probable for Week 8 against the Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. After limited practice Wednesday, Hillis was upgraded to a full participant Thursday and Friday, and looks set to finally return to game action.

Hillis hasn't played since leaving Week 3's game with a sprained ankle. He has just 21 carries for 93 yards on the year, with zero TDs.

Fantasy Impact: Hard to tell what Hillis' role will be now. He was initially splitting time with Jamaal Charles coming off ACL surgery, but Charles has taken the workhorse load and run with it, leaving his backups in the dust.

If you still have Hillis on your fantasy team, keep him benched and see what kind of workload he gets Sunday. For now, he appears to be little more than a handcuff.
