Peyton Hillis Lookin’ Good

Time to cowboy up Juan… I have been pushing Hillis as a nice flex option all Summer and his first game action is making me feel better about backing the 2010 #2 fantasy RB.  Last year was a disaster, but Hillis has looked good in camp and had a hell of a half in his first preseason action.  On only 5 touches, Hillis finished with 52 total yards and a receiving TD.  The Chiefs...

NFL Preseason: Kansas City Chiefs Take Down Cardinals
