The New Orleans Saints are not expected to have QB Taysom Hill (knee) available for their NFC Divisional Round game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, Jan. 17.
Huddle Up: Hill had been listed as questionable on the injury report after only being able to practice on a limited basis Friday, Jan. 15. Despite his versatility as a passer, rusher and receiver, Hill doesn't possess much value in postseason fantasy games but he could be viewed as a low-end QB1 option in seasonal formats next year, assuming that QB Drew Brees retires at the end of the Saints' current playoff run.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill (knee) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Jan. 15, and is listed as questionable for the NFC Divisional Round game versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Hill hasn't missed a game over the last three seasons, so the odds are that he'll be able to play this weekend. The versatile 30-year-old typically plays about 20 offensive snaps per game when Drew Brees is healthy and has scored 13 total touchdowns this season as a passer, rusher or receiver. Hill doesn't possess a lot of fantasy value in playoff leagues, but he could be considered a low-end QB1 in 2021 should Brees opt to retire at the end of this season.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill completed both his passes for eight yards, rushed five times for 18 yards and a touchdown and caught a 19-yard pass in a 52-33 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Hill's versatility was on display, but with Drew Brees back under center, he is a touchdown-dependent flex option, at best.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill will be relegated to the bench with QB Drew Brees' (ribs) return in Week 15. QB Jameis Winston will be the backup quarterback, and Hill will return to his hybrid role with some plays at quarterback.
Huddle Up: Hill gave owners a big-time boost the last few weeks and offered a preview of what could be a QB4 or QB5 selection in drafts next year. Brees is a high-end QB2 right now.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill completed 28-for-38 passing, finishing with 291 yards, two touchdowns and an interception Sunday, Dec. 13, at the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14. Hill also ran five times for 33 yards and lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Depending on Drew Brees' availability next week, Hill has a chance to be forced into a pass-heavy script vs. Kansas City. Stay tuned throughout the week, but if Brees sits, Hill is a low-tier starting option.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill is expected to start in Week 14 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: The team also has increased confidence that he's the heir apparent to Drew Brees, which could be next year. He'll be an upper-middle QB1 in fantasy.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill went 27-for-37 for 232 yards and two touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13. He also rushed for 83 yards on 14 carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Hill recorded his first passing touchdowns of the season and also had a season high in rushing yards. Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation because Drew Brees is expected back soon. Hill can be a low-end No. 1 fantasy quarterback next week if he receives another start.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill completed just 9-of-16 passes for 78 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Week 12 against the Denver Broncos, but he rushed 10 times for 44 yards and a pair of touchdowns to win in his second straight NFL start.
Huddle Up: Hill hasn't lit up the stat sheet, but he has been effective with his feet, and more importantly to his real team, he has won each of his first two NFL starts. The Saints are back in action in Atlanta in Week 13.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill completed 18-of-23 passes for 233 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 11 against the Atlanta Falcons and he ran 10 times for a game-high 51 yards and two touchdowns in his first NFL start.
Huddle Up: Head coach Sean Payton surprised many people this week by tabbing Hill as his starter instead of Jameis Winston, who replaced Drew Brees last week in the second half when the latter was injured. It worked out, and fantasy owners likely did pretty well for themselves, too. Hill might get the starting nod again in Week 12 at Denver.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill will start in Week 11 against the Atlanta Falcons, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hill is an intriguing option against the Atlanta Falcons as a low-end QB1. Sadly, for those that pounced on Jameis Winston, he can probably go back to the waiver wire.
