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

Goes for four yards in win
QBNew Orleans Saints
November 17, 2019
Hill rushed once for two yards, adding a two-yard reception in the Saints' 34-17 blowout victory over the Buccaneers on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
It was a typical day at the office for Hill, who saw brief work as a back and a receiver in Sunday's rout of the Bucs. Hill's ability to line up anywhere on the field makes him a valuable real-world player for the Saints. However, his relatively sparse weekly usage makes him avoidable in almost any fantasy format.

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.
