RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

An undrafted rookie out of Idaho State two years ago, Hill will have an expanded role this season following Jimmy Graham's trade to Seattle. Of course, expecting Hill to fill the massive hole Graham leaves behind is unwise, but Hill has the size, speed and skills that portend excellent upside in one of the league's best passing offenses. At 6-5, 250, Hill runs a 4.66 40 with a 36.5-inch vertical. He's shown great athleticism as a special teams standout and soft hands when given the chance. Although he only had 14 receptions last year (on 20 targets), five went for touchdowns. It also doesn't hurt that coach Sean Payton was so effusive in his praise of Hill this offseason. Clearly, the Saints, who also traded wideout Kenny Stills, are counting on Hill to make an impact. The aging Ben Watson also will be used in the passing game but could be largely relegated to blocking if Hill emerges as a playmaker according to plan.

2014

Hill is an intriguing talent as a pass-catching tight end but with both Jimmy Graham and Ben Watson in front of him on the depth chart, Hill faces an uphill battle for playing time with the Saints.

2013

Hill will play as the Saints third tight end behind Jimmy Graham and Ben Watson, however, he holds little fantasy value absent injuries to the starters.
