2018 Fantasy Outlook
A standout dual-threat quarterback at BYU, Hill was not drafted in the 2017 NFL Draft before signing as a free agent with the Packers. He subsequently joined the Saints after being claimed off waivers last September. The rookie quarterback spent most of the season on the practice squad before causing considerable buzz in his NFL debut in a Week 13 win over the Panthers -- a game in which he recorded two tackles and came close to blocking a pair of Carolina punts as part of the Saints' special-teams unit. While Hill is expected to continue to play on special teams, he will also compete with offseason free agent Tom Savage for the right to serve as quarterback Drew Brees' primary backup. Although Hill's checkered medical history includes four season-ending injuries in college, he has intriguing potential as a dual-threat quarterback if he were ever to get an extended look in the NFL at any point.

$Signed a three-year, $1.67 million contract with the Packers in May of 2017. Waived by the Packers in September of 2017. Claimed off waivers by the Saints in September of 2017.

January 22, 2019
Hill recorded 196 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 37 carries, four receiving yards on three catches and 64 passing yards and an interception on 3-for-7 passing while playing in 16 games in 2018.
ANALYSIS
Hill was a jack of all trades for the Saints in 2018. After playing in just 72 snaps across five games as a rookie in 2018, Hill played 524 snaps this year, with a majority of his work coming on special teams. While he operated as a gadget player for New Orleans, he never turned into a reliable fantasy option given his limited touches on a week-to-week basis. He'll likely see a similar role in 2019, though he could move up to the No. 2 quarterback slot.
