Saints' Josh Hill: Undergoes surgery on finger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill recently underwent surgery on his finger but is expected to be ready for OTAs, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Hill's finger was locked at a 90-degree angle, but there doesn't appear to be much concern about his recovery timetable given that the tight end was able to play through it this season. Expect Hill to be on the field once offseason workouts begin.

Saints' Josh Hill: Best game of season in playoff defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill caught three of six targets for 54 yards in Sunday's 29-24 NFC divisional-round loss to the Vikings.

Hill made some clutch plays in the second half, including an 18-yard reception on the Saints' final scoring drive. In total, the 54 receiving yards were a season high, and his three catches also matched his season best. Even before Coby Fleener suffered a season-ending head injury Week 12, Hill had moved ahead of Fleener on the Saints' tight-end depth chart. Nevertheless, Hill's impact as a starter was minimal, as he finished the regular season with just 125 yards and one touchdown on 16 receptions. With Fleener's health status for 2018 up in the air, Hill could again begin next season as the Saints' nominal tight-end starter, but he probably has not shown enough to warrant much fantasy consideration outside of deeper leagues even if he retains the No. 1 job.

Saints' Josh Hill: Fine for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Hill's role as the No. 1 tight end has yet to result in more than four targets in any game this season. The Saints are still heavily reliant on Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas and, to a lesser extent, Ted Ginn.

Saints' Josh Hill: Logs limited practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Hill was nursing the same injury ahead of both of the last two games but ultimately suited up Weeks 15 and 16. The fifth-year tight end has been an afterthought in the Saints' run-centric offense in 2017, accruing just 15 receptions for 117 yards and one touchdown in 15 games.

Saints' Josh Hill: Ready for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill (shoulder) does not have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

Hill's snap share fell between 63.5 and 67.2 percent each of the past four weeks, but he'll probably take on some added playing time in the absence of top backups Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion) and Garrett Griffin (foot). There still isn't any reason to expect more than three or four targets, as the Saints have leaned heavily on Michael Thomas and their running backs with great success all season. The team also gets Ted Ginn (ribs) back in the lineup for Sunday's game.
