New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill may be the leading candidate to open the season as the starter because of his ability to produce as a runner and passer, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Hill will compete with Jameis Winston for the starting job during training camp, so fantasy players can monitor the situation over the next month or two. Hill has some success while playing quarterback last season but may only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill is training exclusively as a quarterback this offseason after previously coming to camp prepared to play multiple positions.
Huddle Up: Hill served as a cheat code in some fantasy football formats last season. In leagues where he was eligible as a tight end, he was a must-start when starting at QB for the Saints in place of an injured Drew Brees. He's likely to compete with QB Jameis Winston in training camp and in the preseason with Winston the presumed Week 1 starter. Though Hill offers some mobility and the potential for rushing touchdowns, his fantasy ceiling as a passer is quite low. Fantasy managers should be hoping Winston gets the job.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill signed a four-year contract extension with the Saints Sunday, March 14, worth $140 million but all four years of the contract are voidable, according to a source. The move creates over $7.5 million in salary cap space for the Saints in 2021.
Huddle Up: Hill may be given the chance to compete for the starting quarterback job next season depending on what the team does at the position. He has some fantasy value because of his running ability but probably would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

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.
