Stephen Hill was officially named the New York Jets' No. 2 receiver starting opposite Santonio Holmes by head coach Rex Ryan on Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. The rookie wideout has essentially been operating as the team's second receiver throughout the preseason. He caught five passes for 68 yards during Jets' third preseason game two weeks ago.
Analysis: Physically, Hill could be one of the elite receivers in the league right now . The 6'4, 215-pound wideout is still very raw after coming from a triple option offense in college, however, and his fantasy upside is limited this season by what so far seems like an anemic Jets offense. Still, he should see a fair amount of targets and could emerge as a solid fantasy contributor if he can capitalize on his immense physical gifts. He could be worth a speculative waiver pick-up if he went undrafted in your league.
