Stephen Hill WR NYJ 11 Days
Jets OC Marty Mornhinweg expects Stephen Hill to play his "usual amount of snaps" in Week 12 against the Ravens.
Coach Rex Ryan called Hill out publicly this week, threatening to bench him for David Nelson. Jets beat writer Rich Cimini isn't totally buying it, suggesting Ryan's words were a motivational tactic, and Rex and Marty are pulling "the 'ol good cop-bad cop routine." Beyond perhaps Santonio Holmes, Jets receivers are best left avoided in Week 12 fantasy lineup decisions.

Stephen Hill will remain part of the Jets' receiver rotation despite losing his starting job to David Nelson.
"[WRs coach Sanjay Lal was] just straight up with me," said Hill. "That some things are going to be cut down. But I'm still going to get enough reps." Highly inconsistent, Hill has gone catch-less in two straight games. He was targeted seven times in Week 11 and didn't secure any of them. The Jets' receiver rotation currently involves Nelson, Hill, Santonio Holmes, and slot man Greg Salas. They also use a rotation at tight end.

The Jets are considering benching Stephen Hill.
"We've been expecting bigger things for Stephen," coach Rex Ryan said Monday. "Quite honestly, it hasn't happened." Hill has been held without a catch in back-to-back games, and has only 10 grabs for 107 yards since Week 4. He's a boom-or-bust player who hasn't gone "boom" in two months. With Jeremy Kerley (elbow) sidelined indefinitely, David Nelson would be the leading candidate to replace Hill opposite Santonio Holmes. Greg Salas could also continue to be mixed in more on offense. Hill can be safely dropped in re-draft leagues, though he remains worth a hold in Dynasty formats.

Stephen Hill was held without a catch in the Jets' Week 11 loss.
Hill was outproduced by David Nelson, Santonio Holmes, and Greg Salas in the defeat. A boom-or-bust player in a receiver rotation with quarterback troubles, Hill is not worth rostering in 12- and 14-team fantasy football leagues. Hill has now been held catch-less in back-to-back games.

Stephen Hill (foot, knee) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as probable for Week 11 against the Bills.
He'll start opposite Santonio Holmes, with David Nelson playing in the slot. Hill had a season-high 108 yards and a touchdown against Buffalo in Week 3, but has only 13 targets over his last three games and remains just a WR4 option.
