Peyton Hillis Injury Update: Out on Sunday, losing overall fantasy value

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Peyton Hills won't play on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Peyton Hills (ankle) did not practice all week and he will not play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The former Madden cover man has yet to hit his stride in 2012 with just 21 carries for 93 yards and no scores.

Fantasy Impact: Hills has been very disappointing to fantasy owners and his ankle injury against the New Orleans Saints has kept him down since Week 4. Hillis has battled injuries since his breakout campaign two seasons ago and even strep throat kept him out last year. He's not really worth owning in standard leagues, especially with Jamaal Charles leading the league in rushing.

Hillis will be replaced by Shaun Draughn once again. Draughn has 34 carries for 157 yards on the season and actually saw 12 carries against the Baltimore Ravens last week. Jamaal Charles is a no-brainer start, but Draughn is more of an RB4 in standards this week.
