Peyton Hillis RB NYG 7 Months

Peyton Hillis (concussion) resumed practicing Thursday.

Barring a setback, Hillis should be ready to back up Andre Brown, who has also resumed practicing after suffering a concussion of his own in Week 16. A soon-to-be 28-year-old plodder with no playmaking ability, Hillis is going to have a hard time finding work in the offseason.

Peyton Hillis rushed four times for 11 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 14 loss to San Diego.

Hillis did nothing other than steal fantasy points from Andre Brown, vulturing a one-yard touchdown early in the third quarter. The Giants have some odd obsession with designated goal-line backs. Hillis isn't even a worthwhile handcuff for Brown for Weeks 15 and 16.

Peyton Hillis had six carries for 45 yards in Sunday night's Week 13 win over the Redskins.

With Brandon Jacobs (knee) inactive, Hillis was the No. 2 back behind Andre Brown. He saw seven touches in a short-yardage and change-of-pace role, with 35 of his total yards coming on back-to-back runs in the second quarter. Hillis surprisingly played in the two-minute offense over Brown at the end of the first half. He isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues and will likely struggle for playing time when Jacobs returns.
