New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (knee) said he is fully recovered from the knee surgery he had in December.
Huddle Up: Hill finished his injury-hampered rookie year with 21 catches for 252 yards and 3 TDs, and especially considering he had 5 receptions, 89 yards and 2 TDs in Week 1, the Jets are counting on much more out of the WR in Year 2.

The New York Jets placed WR Stephen Hill (knee) on the season-ending Injured Reserve list Wednesday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: Scratch another wounded Jet off the list as the top WR targets now will be Jeremy Kerley and the newly re-signed Braylon Edwards.

New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (knee) did not participate in practice Saturday, Dec. 15, and is listed as doubtful for Week 15.
Huddle Up: It's been an up-and-down season for the rookie, who has caught passes in only 2 of the Jets' past 5 games. If Hill can't go Monday night, it could clear the way for the newly-signed Braylon Edwards to see some work.

New York Jets WR Stephen Hill, who will undergo an MRI Monday, Dec. 10, after suffering a knee injury in Week 14, also suffered some cartilage damage last week, so the hope is that this injury is more of the same and not a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Huddle Up: Hill briefly flashed some fantasy upside, but between the Jets' QB struggles and Hills' injury his value in redraft leagues is done.

Updating a previous report, New York Jets WR Stephen Hill will have an MRI Monday, Dec. 10, to determine the extent of damage in his knee after leaving the Week 14 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Hill, who missed 4 games earlier this season with a hamstring issue, was held without a catch Sunday. If you're counting on him in deep, deep league, see what the MRI reveals and go from there.

New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 21, and is listed as probable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: He is in better shape than his comrade, Jeremy Kerley. If only Hill could catch more balls than he drops, he might be a nice fantasy option. As it stands, he is quite "boom or bust."

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks WR Stephen Hill's lack of production recently is due to the fact that he missed most of last week with an illness. Regardless, Ryan expects QB Mark Sanchez to continue to look Hill's way. Ryan said he was impressed with Hill's blocking in Week 11.
Huddle Up: The rookie wideout began the season with a fantasy bang, catching 5 passes for 89 and 2 TDs in the Jets' opener. However, since then, Hill only has 9 grabs, 107 yards and 1 score in 7 games played, including zeroes since Week 8. Only desperate owners in deep leagues should be flirting with Hill at the present time.

New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: In all likelihood, Hill is just trying to take it easy in the first practice of the week. The team's 2nd-round returned in Week 6 after a 4-game absence and caught a TD pass, giving him a trio of scoring receptions among his 8 catches this season.

New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (hamstring) will play in Week 6, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Huddle Up: Hill, the Jets' second-round pick, will be welcomed with open arms on an offense that needs big help. Hill, though, will have to shake off the rust as he hasn't caught a pass since his strong Week 1 when he had 5 grabs for 89 yards and a TD.

New York Jets FB John Conner (hamstring), WR Stephen Hill (hamstring) and TE Dustin Keller (hamstring) will not play Week 5 because of injuries. All three were listed as doubtful for the game.
Huddle Up: No real surprise here at receiver. WRs Jeremy Kerley and Chaz Schilens will fill in for the inactive Hill and IR'd Santonio Holmes. Jeff Cumberland starts for Keller.

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan has all but ruled out WR Stephen Hill for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Hill is battling a hamstring injury and doesn't appear to be available this week. That means more targets for Santonio Holmes and Jeremy Kerley.

New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (hamstring), LB Bart Scott (toe) and DB Eric Smith (hip, knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Hill, a second-round pick in April, was a hot fantasy commodity after his 5-catch, 85-yard, 2-TD performance in Week 1, but he hasn't caught a pass on his 9 targets since. Then came the hammy injury this past Sunday in Miami which is clouding his availability for Week 4. Monitor his progress the rest of the week.

New York Jets WR Stephen Hill (calf) will be limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 12.
Huddle Up: Add this to the list of reasons why you should be bearish on Hill as a waiver wire pickup. He will have opportunity as the WR2, but Mark Sanchez's inconsistency and Hill's rawness as a rookie are red flags. The injury is just the cherry on top.

New York Jets WR Stephen Hill dropped many passes thrown his way during practice Tuesday, Aug. 21, including several passes in the end zone. The Jets appear are thin at the receiver position with WRs Santonio Holmes (back, ribs), Jeremy Kerley (hamstring) and Chaz Schilens (ankle) banged up.
Huddle Up: Hill, the team's second-round pick out of Georgia Tech, literally is dropping the ball in an opportunity to seize his spot in the Jets' depleted receiver rotation. Regardless, the squad might have no choice but to rely on the rookie if Holmes, Kerley and Schilens continue to watch games from the sidelines.

New York Jets WR Stephen Hill is listed as a starter on the team's initial preseason depth chart Tuesday, Aug. 7.
Huddle Up: Obviously, the Jets' second-round pick has made a quick impression in camp as he is listed ahead of veterans Chaz Schillens and Jeremy Kerley on the team's initial preseason depth chart. Still, we are talking Schillens and Kerley here, so it's not like Hill is competing against Pro Bowl material. Regardless, the rookie still has some adjustments ahead coming from a triple-option attack at Georgia Tech. If he remains a starter, Hill has upside rounding out a 4- or 5-man fantasy receiving corps.
