Tyreek Hill: 2023's Potential Overall WR1



Tyreek Hill entered last season with questions about whether or not he would be able to produce with a relative downgrade at quarterback and added competition for targets in the form of first-round WR Jaylen Waddle. Hill answered those questions, accruing more targets and receiving yards in his first year in Miami than he did in any season in Kansas City.



The most notable statistic, though, doesn’t show up in the box score. Tyreek Hill was the only wide receiver in 2022 to post over 20 fantasy points per game in 2022 with a teammate that also registered a 20+% target share. Hill scored 20.1 fantasy points per game on a 28.8% target share, while Jaylen Waddle registered an exactly 20% target share himself.


Tyreek Hill separated himself last year as a receiver who can thrive even with competition, as well as with backup QB play. If Tua can stay healthy this season, Hill should be a near lock to finish inside the Top-3 WRs once again, and he has realistic upside to chase both 2000 receiving yards and the overall WR1 crown in 2023.
