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.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill has received starter repetitions in practice this week and could be in line for his first start at quarterback in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Well, so much for the wind behind Jameis Winston's sails. Hill is an intriguing option against the Atlanta Falcons as a low-end QB1.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill ran seven times for 54 yards, completed two passes for 48 yards and caught a 21-yard pass during the team's 38-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: It was Taysom Hill Appreciation Night on SNF with no shortage of praise for New Orleans' Swiss army knife. It was definitely one of his better all-around showings, but as a gadget guy he's tough to slot into your lineup, even if you play in a league that classifies him as something other than a QB.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill ran three times for 13 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers and he did not have any catches on two targets while also posting one incompletion.
Huddle Up: Hill is used occasionally for gadget plays, and his touchdown run of nine yards did tie up the game late. However, he doesn't see enough touches to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the very deepest of leagues. And if something happened to knock Drew Brees out for any amount of time, it would likely mean Jameis Winston, not Hill, gets the starts. The Saints are off in Week 6.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill will 'be the guy' when QB Drew Brees retires, according to Jay Glazer of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Hill has been deployed as a Swiss Army knife-type weapon and has delivered big plays in that role. It remains to be seen if he can be successful as a full-time quarterback, but with a chance to eventually lead Sean Payton's offense, Hill is worth stashing in dynasty formats.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill received a one-year extension on top of the one-year, $4.6 million tender he received in March, according to a source. His deal now runs through the 2021 season.
Huddle Up: There's no doubt Sean Payton loves to scheme up new ways to get the ball into Hill's hands, and the Swiss Army knife has carved up the hopes of fantasy owners in the process. Just when you think Alvin Kamara or another prized asset will give you points, bam! Hill swoops in with a trick play touchdown and the grumbles ensue. The fantasy tip: Prepare for at least two more years of this headache. Hill is extremely difficult to start in any conventional league on his own, that is unless positional versatility is afforded when setting a lineup.
