RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

With the trade of Jimmy Graham to Seattle, Hill was a popular sleeper candidate last season, but the 2015 campaign was a largely disappointing one for the former undrafted free agent out of Idaho State, as he managed only 16 receptions for 120 yards and two touchdowns. Still, the Saints surprisingly matched the three-year offer sheet Hill signed with the Bears earlier this offseason. At 6-5, 250 pounds, Hill runs a 4.66 40-yard dash and is an impressive athletic specimen, but with the Saints signing Coby Fleener this spring, Hill's upside is likely limited absent an injury.

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.
