Saints' Josh Hill: Sets career highs in catches and yards

Hill caught all six of his targets for 74 yards in Sunday's win against the Rams.

Hill played 58 of the Saints' 74 offensive snaps (78 percent), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, compared to only 18 snaps for tight end Coby Fleener. Normally, a high snap total for Hill is reflective of the Saints running well, which they did Sunday, but he also added six catches for 74 yards, both of which are career highs. While Hill's snap count was a season high, he's been quietly splitting playing time with the presumed starter Fleener since Hill returned from injury in Week 6. Still, Fleener remains the preferred receiving option, with Hill the primary blocking tight end, but daily fantasy players may be able to catch lightning in a bottle with Hill in a favorable Week 13 matchup at home against the Lions.
