6. Tyreek Hill
Arguably the most dangerous wide receiver in the NFL today, Tyreek Hill has been a nightmare for defensive backs and impossible to stop. Statistically, Hill’s numbers declined due to his four-game, almost a full five, absence from a shoulder injury early in a Week 1 game in Jacksonville. But Hill still played at a high level when he returned from his injury.
Despite missing four games, Hill was still voted in as a Pro Bowler this year. He finished the regular season with 58 catches for 860 yards and seven touchdowns. His seven scores led the team in 2019.
Hill came through the most in the playoffs when the Chiefs needed it the most. Hill’s first career postseason touchdown catch came in the AFC Championship game against the Titans. Hill caught two touchdown grabs in this game. Both of his touchdowns came while the Chiefs were down by 10, helping the team cut the deficit.
Although Hill did not find the end zone in the Super Bowl, he had a big hand in helping the Chiefs capture its first Super Bowl win in 50 years. Hill finished the game with nine grabs for 105 yards. That includes a 44-yard catch, the play best known as WASP, that came on a 3rd-and-15 play in the fourth quarter when the Chiefs were down by two possessions.
In addition to earning his first Super Bowl ring, Hill has been voted to the Pro Bowl each season in his four-year career. Hill had personal highs and the franchise record for receiving yards in a season in 2018, his first year playing with Patrick Mahomes. If Hill stays healthy and plays a full season, he and Mahomes are capable of putting up big numbers throughout the 2020 season.
