2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hill lined up at quarterback, running back, tight end, wide receiver and kick returner last season as a trick-play, jack-of-all-trades backup. His biggest fantasy impact, though, was depriving Drew Brees and the Saints running backs of a handful of passing and rushing opportunities at the goal line. Hill, who scored twice last year, likely will remain a mainstay in the team's offensive plans while also playing the majority of snaps on special teams. If Brees were to get injured, Hill might have an opportunity to handle more touches, but Teddy Bridgewater is still the No. 2 quarterback on the roster. Hill will continue to be a fun player the Saints love using in a variety of ways, but he's not a fantasy option outside of deep two-QB leagues. Read Past Outlooks

More comfortable with receiving now
QBNew Orleans Saints
June 19, 2019
Hill expects to have an easier time with blocking and running routes during the upcoming season, Sean Fazende of Fox 8 News New Orleans reports.
ANALYSIS
Hill is locked in for another season as a third-string quarterback, gadget player and core special teams contributor. He's a natural runner who produced 5.3 yards per carry on 37 attempts last season, but the blocking and receiving aspects of his unique role seemed to present a challenge, with Hill catching just three of seven targets for four yards. His continued development in those areas will only make the Saints more dangerous in the red zone, potentially allowing the team to utilize Hill without holding Drew Brees out for select snaps.

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.
