New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis is likely to be active in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins with RB Brandon Jacobs (knee) inactive. Hillis will back up RB Andre Brown.
Sun, 24 Nov 2013 12:03:46 -0800
The New York Giants have declared WR Hakeem Nicks, TE Adrien Robinson, QB Ryan Nassib, DT Markus Kuhn, OL Dallas Reynolds, RB Peyton Hillis and CB Corey Webster inactive for Week 12's game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Fri, 22 Nov 2013 14:57:58 -0800
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin doesn't expect to change things up when it comes to the roles of his running backs. Last week against the Green Bay Packers, RB Andre Brown was the lead back with RB Brandon Jacobs serving as the goal-line and short-yardage option. Brown had 18 carries for 75 percent of the workload, with Jacobs having five touches. RB Michael Cox will likely continue to be used on special teams, meaning RB Peyton Hillis would be inactive for the second straight week.
Fantasy Tip: Now that Jacobs has the lead role, he's basically a must-start, especially with a juicy matchup against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12. Jacobs will be inconsistent in his production, making him a flex play in deep leagues.
Sun, 17 Nov 2013 12:03:48 -0800
The New York Giants have declared TE Adrien Robinson, LB Allen Bradford, CB Corey Webster, OG Dallas Reynolds, DL Markus Kuhn, RB Peyton Hillis, QB Ryan Nassib inactive for Week 11.
Wed, 06 Nov 2013 20:38:58 -0800
New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis is expected to be a big part of the team's plan for Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders. Hillis is expected to be the primary option, with RBs Andre Brown and Brandon Jacobs sprinkled into the equation. "I'm pretty sure they are going to switch us in, switch us out," Brown said Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Fantasy Tip: For fantasy purposes, Hillis is your best best as a low-end RB2 or flex play, followed by Jacobs. Brown isn't worth using in any fantasy format, as he makes his way back from injury. However, monitor the situation and be ready to grab him off the waiver wire if he plays better than expected. The job is likely an open competition right now, with the hot hand getting the bulk of the carries going forward.
Mon, 04 Nov 2013 13:24:26 -0800
Updating a previous report, an MRI showed RB David Wilson (neck) significant improvement in his recovery from a neck injury, but he has not been cleared to resume football activities at this point. Wilson will undergo another evaluation in a few weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Wilson will be out for a few more weeks, so Andre Brown, Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs will handle the carries for now. Brown is expected to be activated this week and should be owned in all leagues. Hillis and Jacobs likely will see their fantasy value drop because of the return of Brown. If you've been stashing Wilson, this might be the time to give up if you're in need of the roster space.
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:25:24 -0700
New York Giants RB Andre Brown (leg) is 100 percent healthy and recovered from his fractured left leg, but he said he will wear a protective shin guard "for the rest of my career." Head coach Tom Coughlin said he's "going to have to wait and see" when Brown will return. It's unclear if RBs Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs will have a roster spot when Brown returns.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as if Brown is much closer to returning than David Wilson (neck). Brown could return in Week 10. Grab him off the waiver wire now and stash him if he's still available.
Mon, 28 Oct 2013 14:03:06 -0700
The New York Giants likely will not release RB Peyton Hillis when RB Andre Brown (leg) is activated because he has been running the ball well and has been a good blocker and receiver in the passing game.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 08:21:41 -0700
New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) has been declared inactive for Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox likely will share playing time at running back in the game. Hillis could be a starting option or a flex option while Cox should only be seen as a flex option.
Fri, 25 Oct 2013 10:45:27 -0700
New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) is officially listed as doubtful for Week 8. RBs Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox will split repetitions for the second straight week.
Fantasy Tip: Hillis is worth a start, but Cox should only be a flex option, at best, in cavernous leagues. Jacobs' short-term value is dwindling by the day with the emergence of Hillis and the returns of David Wilson (neck) and Andre Brown (leg) looming.
Fri, 25 Oct 2013 09:51:19 -0700
New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis said he's ready to take on a bigger role in the running game after making his season debut in Week 7. "Most definitely," Hillis said. "I think it always takes a couple weeks to get back into shape when you're on the couch for five weeks. I'm thinking that, no matter what they ask me to do, my body is going to be in a lot better shape than it was last week, for sure."
Fantasy Tip: At least for another week, Hillis is a decent option for starting lineups as an RB2 or 3, especially with Brandon Jacobs (hamstring) ailing. Hillis is a short-term solution, however, with David Wilson (neck) and Andre Brown (leg) looming on the horizon.
Thu, 24 Oct 2013 12:09:24 -0700
New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring), who missed practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 24, said it "feels good" but won't commit to returning in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles because "hamstrings are tricky."
Fantasy Tip: Don't expect to rely on Jacobs this weekend. Peyton Hillis looked good in his debut in Week 7 and should receive the majority of touches again against the Eagles. Hillis is a flex play in deeper leagues.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 21:05:15 -0700
New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis carried 18 times for just 36 yards in the Week 7 game against the Minnesota Vikings Monday, Oct. 21. However, he was able to score a rushing touchdown in his first game with the team.
Fantasy Tip: Hillis was just signed mid-week by the team, and he made an instant splash, also catching five balls for 45 yards. Hillis might be a decent short-term fantasy option as an RB3 or flex option in leagues of 12 or more teams if you're desperate for help at the RB position.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 15:12:09 -0700
New York Giants RB Michael Cox is expected to start at running back in the team's Week 7 game.
Fantasy Tip: Cox is expected to start but will be sharing playing time with Peyton Hillis during the game. Cox should only be considered a flex option in deeper leagues.
Sun, 20 Oct 2013 08:09:13 -0700
New York Giants RB Peyton Hillis could have a bigger role in the offense Week 7 than first anticipated because of the injury to RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring).

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 07:55:30 -0700
The New York Giants signed free-agent RB Peyton Hillis (Buccaneers) to an undisclosed deal.
Fantasy Tip: Hillis is likely serving as insurance in case Brandon Jacobs can't handle the load. Even then, Andre Brown (leg) is expected back in a couple of weeks.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 18:06:13 -0700

The battle for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers backup running back position behind RB Doug Martin is close between RBs Brian Leonard, Mike James and Peyton Hillis. If the Buccaneers chose to only keep three running backs, Hillis could be the odd man out, according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com.
Tue, 13 Aug 2013 15:29:39 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Hillis hasn't looked good in the last two years and isn't a lock for the roster. RB Brian Leonard had a good showing in the first preseason game, and the team likes RB Mike James as an all-around runner.

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 09:09:31 -0700
Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Peyton Hillis (knee) suffered a hyperextended knee, and it is considered a minor injury.

Tue, 15 Jan 2013 19:15:21 -0800
Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles was a stud in his return from knee surgery, gaining over 1,500 yards on the ground. While RB Peyton Hillis, an unrestricted free agent, is not likely to be back. However, FB Nate Eachus and RB Shaun Draughn provide some decent depth, as well as RB Cyrus Gray. New head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey aren't expected to have to tinker much with this position.
Tue, 15 Jan 2013 19:14:46 -0800

"Joe Thomas, he can have his opinions all he wants," Hillis said. "He's kind of like a crazy ex-girlfriend. It's been over a year. Get over it."
