Saints' Taysom Hill: Scores in OT victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill rushed three times for 13 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 30-27 overtime win against the Chargers.

He also fell incomplete on his only pass attempt and failed to bring in either of his two targets. Hill continues to be involved in the offense with a handful of touches per week, but he can remain on the waiver wire as nothing more than a desperation boom-or-bust option even in deep leagues.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Totals 14 yards in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill carried three times for six yards and caught his only target for eight yards in the Saints' 35-29 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Another week, another small workload, as Hill managed just four touches in Sunday's win. He continues to see very little usage in the Saints' offense, and he can be safely left on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of leagues.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Three touches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill carried twice for six yards and brought in his only target for one yard in the Saints' 37-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

He also lost a fumble. Hill's 2019 career year seems a distant memory, as he's now totaled just 10 touches through the first three weeks of the season. With Alvin Kamara and Drew Brees both in full health this season, Hill's roles as a receiver and option quarterback have shrunk considerably. He can't be comfortably utilized in most fantasy formats.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Musters two touches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill carried twice for eight yards in the Saints' 34-24 loss to the Raiders on Monday.

After totaling five touches and operating as a passer, running back and receiver in Week 1, Hill took a step back in Week 2 and saw limited action in the loss. Hill's limited volume makes him a highly unpredictable option from week-to-week, and his services are best reserved for deep leagues.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Shows versatility in Week 1 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill completed his only pass attempt for 38 yards, adding three rushes for 13 yards and a 14-yard reception in Sunday's 34-23 win over the Saints.

As expected, Hill operated as a gadget player and did a bit of everything in Sunday's victory. He scored a career-high seven touchdowns in 2019, and he's capable of a big game every time he takes the field. However, his highly touchdown-dependent value makes him a volatile fantasy option.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Likely third-string QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill would not be considered the immediate backup in the event Drew Brees were to miss time, Larry Holder of The Athletic reports.

This probably shouldn't be much of a surprise considering Teddy Bridgewater took over during the six weeks Brees was out in 2019, but Hill's $16.3 million offseason extension certainly adds a bit more weight to the 29-year-old's claims to the backup throne. Jameis Winston poses a formidable foe given his starting resume, but ironically Hill's versatility is probably the ultimate detriment considering his ability to impact the team in a number of different ways.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Inks contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill has signed a contract extension with the Saints, Amie Just of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Per Just, the deal is "essentially a one-year extension to the first-round tender the Saints placed on Hill in free agency." In that context, Adam Schefter of ESPN relays that Sunday's agreement with the QB effectively amounts to a one-year, $16.3 million extension. Hill is thus slated to remain in the New Orleans signal-caller mix through the 2021 campaign. This coming season, he'll continue to work behind long-term starter Drew Brees as well garner touches in the team's offense as a gadget player. Additionally, the Saints are reportedly on the verge of adding free agent Jameis Winston.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Offer sheet deadline passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill didn't sign an offer sheet before the passing of Friday's deadline and will remain with New Orleans for the 2020 season, Mike Triplett of reports.

The 29-year-old has yet to officially sign his contract tender, but he's no longer able to negotiate with other teams. The Saints placed a first-round tender on Hill in March, which will be worth $4.641 million for the upcoming season. He's set to serve as New Orleans' backup quarterback behind Drew Brees following the departure of Teddy Bridgewater via free agency, but Hill is still expected to work in the gadget role he's become known for.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Gets first-round tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints have placed a first-round tender on Hill, Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports.

As expected, New Orleans made the move, which almost assuredly means Hill is in a Saints uniform in 2020. With Teddy Bridgewater expected to move on, Hill will move into the backup job to starting QB Drew Brees. Hill's gadget role in the offense shouldn't dry up, though, after he posted 119 passing yards, 590 yards from scrimmage and nine total touchdowns over the past two campaigns.

Saints' Taysom Hill: In line for first-round tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints are expected to place a first-round tender on Hill, who is a restricted free agent, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Hill has been a gadget player in the Saints offense the past two seasons, racking up 119 yards on 13 passes, 64 carries for 352 yards, 22 catches for 238 yards and nine total touchdowns while playing all 32 regular-season contests. With Drew Brees committed to playing in 2020 and Teddy Bridgewater almost certainly moving on as an unrestricted free agent, Hill seems resigned to serve as the backup QB in the Big Easy. If New Orleans proceeds with the aforementioned tender, the organization will have the opportunity to match any offer Hill gets on the open market, or otherwise receive a first-round pick if it opts not to do so.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Wants to play QB eventually
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill said he'll leave New Orleans if he doesn't eventually get a chance to start at quarterback, Rob Maaddi of The Associated Press reports.

Hill presumably understands that he won't have a shot at the starting job until Drew Brees decides to retire, something that hasn't officially been determined but doesn't seem likely to happen this offseason. Hill may be hinting at a desire to replace Teddy Bridgewater -- an impending free agent -- as the No. 2 quarterback, though it would be tricky for the 29-year-old to take on that responsibility while also handling his accustomed roles as a gadget player on offense and a member of multiple special teams units. For what it's worth, former Saints special teams coach Mike Westhoff told Zach Gelb of CBS Sports Radio that he expects Hill to be the eventual successor to Brees in New Orleans. Hill is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this offseason, and the Saints presumably will use a first- or second-round tender to provide some protection from offer sheets.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Headed for bigger role in 2020?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drew Brees said he'd be fine with Hill taking more snaps in 2020, Chris Simms of NBC Sports reports.

Brees hasn't officially decided on playing another season but seems to be leaning in that direction. A few recent reports have suggested the Saints view Hill as Brees' eventual replacement at quarterback, which hints at Teddy Bridgewater finding a new team when he becomes a free agent this offseason. An expanded role for Hill in 2020 could involve more snaps at quarterback, or it could just mean more playing time as a wide receiver, tight end or running back.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Blows up for 125 yards in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill completed his only pass attempt for 50 yards and caught both of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' 26-20 overtime wild-card loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

He also rushed for 50 yards on just four carries. Hill did a bit of everything Sunday and looked to be the more explosive Saints' quarterback on the afternoon. The 50-yard completion was a career-long connection, the rushing yards led the team and the 125 scrimmage yards were a career high in Hill's final game of the 2019 season. The third-year BYU product ended his third season in New Orleans with a career-best 445 scrimmage yards and seven total touchdowns. He'll be a restricted free agent in 2020, and there should certainly be an interest in his multi-faceted services.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Scores long receiving touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill rushed two times for four yards, adding a 45-yard reception touchdown in the Saints' 42-10 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

The jack-of-all-trades player broke free for a 45-yard score Sunday to cap a productive season. On the year, Hill has accumulated 390 total yards and seven total touchdowns, lining up as a running back, receiver and quarterback. He will likely play a similar role for New Orleans in the playoffs.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Gets involved all over the field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill completed one of two pass attempts for 20 yards, adding two carries for 11 yards and catching both of his targets for an additional 21 yards in the Saints' 38-28 win over the Titans on Sunday.

Hill mixed in all over the field Sunday, getting involved in the passing, rushing and receiving games. His production, however, remained minor, as Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas led the way in typical fashion. Hill is a fine player for the Saints' real-world operation, as he creates mismatches and provides dynamic athleticism at a number of different positions. He's not worth rostering outside of deep, two-quarterback leagues for fantasy purposes, though.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Catches touchdown in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill corralled both of his targets for 42 yards and a touchdown, adding one yard on two carries in the Saints' 34-7 win over the Colts on Monday.

Hill caught Drew Brees' final touchdown of the evening, bringing in a 28-yard score at the end of the third quarter to put New Orleans up 34-0. The multi-faceted quarterback is always a threat to score when the Saints scheme the ball to him, but he can't be relied on for consistent fantasy production due to his low weekly volume.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Falls back to earth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill failed to complete his only pass attempt, adding five carries for 13 yards and a 12-yard reception in the Saints' 48-46 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

Last week's two-touchdown Thanksgiving bonanza is in the distant rear view, as Hill fell back to earth for a typical stat line in Sunday's loss. The rushing attempts were a season-high, though game script -- influenced by a combined 94 points scored -- likely contributed to that bump in usage out of the backfield. Hill shouldn't be utilized outside of deep two-quarterback leagues, and his value is almost entirely touchdown-dependent.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Scores twice in career game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill rushed twice for 33 yards and a touchdown, adding two receptions for 12 yards and an additional touchdown in the Saints' 26-18 win over the Falcons on Thursday.

Hill had himself a day, producing the first multi-score effort of his career. He got things going early with a three-yard reception touchdown, before taking a direct snap and darting through the line for a 30-yard scamper just before halftime. The versatile quarterback has flashed his elite athleticism throughout his career, though he rarely logs more than a handful of touches per game, making this an outlier performance.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Logs one reception in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill secured his only target for no gain in the Saints' 34-31 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

New Orleans' triple-threat put up a donut in the box score in Sunday's win, seeing almost no action in the shootout win. Despite his involvement in the passing, rushing and receiving games, Hill has totaled just 30 combined yards over his last four games. He should be left on the waiver wire even in the deepest of leagues.

November 18, 2019 10:52 PM
Saints' Taysom Hill: Goes for four yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill rushed once for two yards, adding a two-yard reception in the Saints' 34-17 blowout victory over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

It was a typical day at the office for Hill, who saw brief work as a back and a receiver in Sunday's rout of the Bucs. Hill's ability to line up anywhere on the field makes him a valuable real-world player for the Saints. However, his relatively sparse weekly usage makes him avoidable in almost any fantasy format.
