Stephen Hill is probable. We break down the fantasy implications.

Stephen Hill (calf) was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday before increasing to full status on Friday. He is probable for Sunday's game with the Steelers.

Analysis: Hill was Sunday's version on Kevin Ogletree with his two scores against the porous Buffalo secondary. Things will be a little different this time against Pittsburgh, but he showed some great route running for a guy that was pegged as only a deep threat in the draft. The sample size is really small, so owners with proven wide receivers might want to stick with them over the rookie. Pittsburgh had major trouble guarding Georgia Tech receivers in their last two games that counted, though.
