Baltimore Ravens RB Justice Hill was a popular name on the waiver wire just a couple of weeks ago, but a toe injury sidelined him for Week 3’s matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.
Is the veteran running back in danger of missing Week 4’s showdown against their AFC North rival? Should fantasy football managers expect to have Hill in their starting lineup if he does suit up?

Latest News Surrounding Justice Hill
Hill missed practice last week with an undisclosed injury to begin the week, which appeared ominous. On top of that, the Ravens went out and brought back Kenyan Drake to the team, which almost certainly signaled that Hill was going to miss extended time.
To begin this week now, Hill’s missing practice yet again, and he joins a long list of Ravens players that are watching from the sideline. At this point, with the news surrounding this injury, Hill is more likely to be placed on injured reserve than he is to make it back for practice this week.
Will Hill Play This Week?
At the time of writing, it’s simply too early to make a call on whether or not Hill will be on the starting roster for the Ravens in Week 4 or if he’ll be a Sunday morning inactive. However, all signs are currently pointing to him missing this contest against the Cleveland Browns.

If he can get in a limited practice on Thursday or Friday this week, there’s a chance that he returns for this game, but that’s even a bit of a stretch. We’ll continue to update you with the latest news and information, so make sure to check back frequently.
What Does This Mean For Hill’s Fantasy Ranking?
Even if Hill makes it back to practice this week and he’s cleared to suit up in Week 4, he’s not a lock for starting lineups. Gus Edwards will be back and out of the concussion protocol, Melvin Gordon is in this backfield and can step in for spot start duty, and Drake also received a couple of opportunities in Week 3.
The Ravens will most likely play it safe and sit Hill for this week, but even if he plays, he’ll most likely be outside the top 36 RBs on the week in our PFN Consensus Rankings.
