News: Hill (illness), who caught one pass for 14 yards on two targets in Thursday's preseason finale against the Eagles, may not make the final roster, Daryl Slater of the Star-Ledger reports. Impact: Once expected to seize the starting role across from Eric Decker, Hill is now on the roster bubble, and doesn't figure to have a prominent role even if he makes the team. He dropped one of his two targets in Thursday's game, staying true to form to finish off a poor preseason.(RotoWire, )

News: Hill is dealing with an illness, but he has still been able to participate in practice, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: He does not appear to be dealing with a serious setback, but it remains to be seen if he will play in Thursday's preseason finale. Hill figures to grab a spot on the Jets' 53-man roster, but it is unlikely that he will open the season with a prominent role in the offense.(RotoWire, )

News: Hill caught one pass for 12 yards on four targets in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants. Impact: Expected to compete with David Nelson for a starting spot across from Eric Decker, Hill now seems to be merely fighting for his roster life. Nelson has also failed to impress, and the Jets may want to consider using Jeremy Kerley as something close to an every-down player. Though he has the size-speed combination of a stud No. 1 wide receiver, Hill continues to struggle with drops, among other things.(RotoWire, )

News: Hill might not have a roster spot locked up, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York. Impact: While this nugget is strictly speculation by Cimini, he's a long-time Jets beat writer and knows the team as well as any media member. Bottom line, Hill is entering a make-or-break season, his third as a pro, and he's been unimpressive most of the summer. We'll watch him closely in the third preseason game.(RotoWire, )

News: Hill is still behind David Nelson on the Jets depth chart, according to the New York Daily News. Hill has run 37 routes in preseason games but has just one reception. Impact: It's a critical year for Hill and so far he hasn't shown much. He'll start the year on the waiver wire, deservedly, in most fantasy leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Hill and David Nelson have not done much to separate from one another in the battle for a starting wideout spot opposite Eric Decker (quad), the New York Daily News reports. Impact: The theme continued Saturday night against the Bengals, as Hill caught one pass for 17 yards, and Nelson caught two for just nine yards. It increasingly looks as if slot man Jeremy Kerley will be more productive than whichever player starts across from Decker. That said, Hill is a 6-4 former first-round draft pick with good speed, so his ceiling is easily higher than Nelson's.(RotoWire, )
