Hillman (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 12 tilt versus the Texans, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Just signed off waivers on Tuesday for depth purposes, the veteran running back will take a seat for his first game in a Chargers uniform. Hillman could well be active in Week 13 once he's had much more of an opportunity to acclimate to the Chargers' offense.

The Chargers claimed Hillman off waivers Tuesday, Ricky Henne of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After Dexter McCluster broke his forearm in a freak incident at his residence on Nov. 4, the offense was able to get by with Melvin Gordon powering the rushing attack in the Chargers' two games before a Week 11 bye. Upon reconvening this week, Hillman has been brought in to bolster the RB ranks but will have to contend with Kenneth Farrow for slotting behind Gordon. Notably, running backs not named Gordon have cobbled together just 6.8 touches per outing this season, so Hillman will be hard-pressed to make an impact on his third squad since the preseason kicked off.

The Vikings waived Hillman on Monday, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

In a backfield beset by injury this season, Hillman was unable to make inroads during his five-game stint with the Vikings, notching 18 carries for 50 yards and four receptions for 43 yards. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will continue to serve as the team's top-2 options at running back.

Hillman had two carries for nine yards and played just six snaps on offense in Sunday's win over Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Two games ago it looked like Hillman may get significant carries in Minnesota's running game, but he's had just six carries the past two games. He looks like a distant third option behind Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata.

Hillman had four carries for two yards and played 13 snaps on offense in Sunday's loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

After leading the Vikings in rushing the week before against the Lions, Hillman was the clear third running back with Jerick McKinnon getting six carries and Matt Asiata getting nine carries. However, both Asiata and McKinnon were largely inefective, so Hillman could still get a chance for a larger role.

Hillman carried seven times for 30 yards and caught his only target for a 32-yard gain in Sunday's 22-16 loss to the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

Hillman outgained Jerrick McKinnon (ankle) and Matt Asiata in what was a rather even three-way split of the backfield touches, and he provided the team's biggest play of the day when he took a screen pass deep into enemy territory. He set season-highs in touches and yardage and appears to have carved out a role for at least until McKinnon's ailing ankle has fully healed. Next week presents a favorable matchup against the Redskins, but Hillman seems doubtful to receive enough usage to truly make an impact from a fantasy perspective.

Hillman had four carries for 15 yards and two receptions for nine yards on five targets in Monday's loss to Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

With Jerick McKinnon missing the game with an ankle injury, Hillman served as the back up to Matt Asiata. Hillman played 18 snaps on offense to Asiata's 43 snaps. Hillman will likely fall back to the third running back when McKinnon returns, but there's still opportunity for his role to grow given that neither McKinnon nor Asiata has been a star with Adrian Peterson out.

Hillman is active for Sunday's game against Philadelphia, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

He may not get any carries as he's the third running back, but this could be a sign he's getting closer to becoming an option in the offense.

Hillman is inactive for Sunday's game against Carolina, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hillman signed with iVikings earlier this week after Adrian Peterson's knee injury. It may take him a few weeks before he learns the offense and is active on game days. He could figure into the mix at running back later in the season, however.

Hillman signed a contract with Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Hillman's signing with the Vikings likely indicates they expect Adrian Peterson to miss several games or more. It's hard to see Hillman having a role initially as he'll add depth, but he could work his way into the rotation in a few weeks if Peterson remains out.
