New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill finished with two receptions, 24 yards and a touchdown on two targets in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Hill didn't have as many catches or yards as Benjamin Watson (4-30-0), but he was the guy who was able to find the end zone. Both players are only worth considering as very low-end TE2 options in the very deepest of fantasy leagues. The Saints travel to meet the Ravens in Week 7 after the bye.

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill posted three grabs for 49 yards and a touchdown on four targets in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: Hill stepped up his game and gave Drew Brees another legitimate target. That's going to be huge heading into next week's Divisional Round Game against the Minnesota Vikings, and Hill is a sneaky sleeper in postseason fantasy pools and DFS play.

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill (fibula) is expected to start running soon, continuing his rehab from a broken fibula.
Huddle Up: Hill was starting to push Coby Fleener for playing time prior to his injury, so his recovery is one to monitor this offseason. He's a low-end TE2 candidate at the moment, albeit one with fairly significant upside.

New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent TE Josh Hill will remain with the Saints after they matched the offer sheet he signed with the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Hill will remain in the Big Easy after his deeply disappointing 2015 fantasy season (16-120-2), and this coming season, he'll be sharing TE snaps with newly signed Coby Fleener instead of Benjamin Watson.

New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent TE Josh Hill signed an undisclosed offer sheet from the Chicago Bears on Tuesday, March 22, according to a source. The Saints have five days to match the Bears' offer.
Huddle Up: The Bears are looking for another tight end to pair with Zach Miller after dealing Martellus Bennett to the Patriots earlier this month and currently have their sights set on Hill, who was a deep fantasy disappointment last season, catching only 16 passes for 120 yards and two TDs. We'll see if the offer is matched by the Saints, who lost free-agent Benjamin Watson to the Ravens but have added ex-Colt Coby Fleener.

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 3, but was present at both of the team's workouts.
Huddle Up: The Saints and Sean Payton are notoriously tight-lipped concerning injuries, so we don't know what the issue with Hill is, but being that he still attended practice suggests it's not anything too serious. Still, more than a few fantasy GMs are a little anxious as Hill is viewed as Jimmy Graham's successor and currently ranks 12th among all TEs in ADP.

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill is expected to have a bigger role in the offense in 2015. Head coach Sean Payton has mentioned him quite a bit since they traded TE Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: There's a gaping hole in the New Orleans offense with Graham gone, and right now Hill seems to be the leading candidate to fill it. He won't vault to Graham's position in the fantasy rankings, but he's working his way into consideration at the low end of potential fantasy starters.

New Orleans Saints reserve TE Josh Hill caught 2 passes for 15 yards, accounting for two of Drew Brees' three TD passes Monday, Dec. 15 in a 31-15 win over the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Hill stole the fantasy thunder from Jimmy Graham who led the team with five catches for 87 yards on seven targets but failed to catch a scoring pass for the third straight week.
