Saints TE Josh Hill held to one catch Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Saints tight end Josh Hill caught one pass on one target for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

While Ben Watson played 62 offensive snaps (86 percent), Hill was only on the field for 29 such plays (40 percent), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

With the Saints' offense currently sputtering and Hill relegated to backup duty, the young tight end does not warrant much Fantasy consideration.

Saints TE Josh Hill wants to grow into new role
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

After trading trading Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks, tight end Josh Hill is ready to step into his new role with the Saints, according to the team's offical website.

“I think it might open a few opportunities for me as I continue to grow in my role and just do everything they ask me to do,” Hill said when asked about the trade of Graham to the Seahawks.

Hill recognized that Graham helped him transition from college to the professional level.

“It’s a big difference, especially coming from a smaller school and a smaller city," Hill said. "He was always there for me. We became pretty good friends over the past few years so it will definitely be different without him.”

Head coach Sean Payton believes that Hill is ready to step up.

“Josh Hill is a player that we value a lot," Payton said last week at the NFL annual meeting. "He’s not on anyone’s fantasy first three rounds, I promise you, but he’s a real good tight end. He’s versatile in the running game, in the pass receiving game, a special teams player.”

Hill, heading into his third year in the NFL, has recorded 20 receptions for 220 yards and six touchdowns.

Sean Payton: TE Josh Hill 'is a player we value a lot'
by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Saints coach Sean Payton on Wednesday talked up tight end Josh Hill, who should get more opportunities with the trade of Jimmy Graham to Seattle. "Josh Hill is a player we value a lot," Payton said, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Hill, 24, is a 6-5, 250-pounder who caught five touchdowns last season. He finished with 14 catches for 176 yards while playing every game.

Hill and Benjamin Watson, 34, are the team's top tight ends following Graham's departure.

Third-string TE Josh Hill catches a pair of touchdowns
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints third-string tight end Josh Hill is up to five touchdowns this season after catching a pair in Monday's 31-15 win at Chicago. Both scores came on the same play.

Drew Brees faked a handoff, rolled right and found Hill open in the flat for 8- and 7-yard touchdowns in the first half. Those were Hill's only two targets.

He'll face Atlanta on Sunday.
