2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Peyton Hillis, RB, Cleveland Browns

2010 Stats
1,177 rush yds.
11 rush TDs
61 rec. / 477 yds.
1 rec. TDs
2011 Projected
1,100 rush yds.
8 rush TDs
51 rec. / 375   yds.
1 rec. TDs

For a stretch last season, Hillis was the most consistent running back in fantasy football. He finished 2010 with 1,177 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns (11 rushing, 2 receiving), despite struggling down the stretch. His fall-off at the end of last season spanned five games, where he failed to score a touchdown and rushed for 100 yards only once. Hillis' struggles shouldn't be too concerning considering three of those final five games were against Miami, Baltimore and Pittsburgh - all very good defenses. The Browns will look to get second-year running back Montario Hardesty more involved after he missed last season with a knee injury. However, Hillis is still their best option at running back - especially around the goalline.
