2021 Fantasy Outlook
After four years as understudy to Drew Brees, Hill still wasn't handed the starting job, as Jameis Winston re-signed with the Saints. The two competed in camp for the job, with Winston emerging victorious after a big performance in the second week of the preseason. Hill went 3-1 with eight total TDs in his four starts as a QB last year, but it took until the third game before he threw his first TD pass. He also made too many mistakes (13 sacks, five turnovers). He completed 73.7 percent of his attempts in large part because he rarely threw deep - 70 percent of his 121 attempts went 10 yards or less, with only 10 passes of 20-plus yards. Hill's running ability gives him fantasy upside if he's taking all the QB snaps, but that won't be the case right out of the gate. Winston, while flawed, has a stronger arm and far more experience as an NFL starter. Either way, Alvin Kamara is a great receiver out of the backfield, but the wideout corps is underwhelming after Michael Thomas, who is expected to miss the beginning of the season in any case. For either QB to make a fantasy impact, Payton needs to open the playbook, rather than leaning on the dink-and-dunk that defined the final years of the Brees era. Read Past Outlooks

October 23, 2021
Hill (concussion) has been ruled out ahead of Monday's contest against the Seahawks, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Hill failed to practice all week, failing to clear concussion protocol ahead of the prime-time affair. Jameis Winston was already clearly operating as the team's starting quarterback, but red-zone options such as Alvin Kamara, Marquez Callaway and Juwan Johnson could all see a boost with the multi-talented Hill unable to siphon away touches.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Hill broke out in 2019, thanks to his game-breaking talent and ability to line up all over the field. After a productive year of his own, Teddy Bridgewater headed out of town, leaving Hill as the heir apparent to the aging Drew Brees. The signing of free agent Jameis Winston puts a damper on Hill's future outlook at quarterback, but Hill still has a strong chance to operate as a gadget player out of the backfield or out wide as a receiver in 2020. Hill's fantasy value was largely touchdown-dependent last season (seven TDs on 46 touches), so consistency may be an issue this year. Despite an uncertain workload, his unique skill set and scoring upside make Hill an asset for deeper 2QB and best ball formats.
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.
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.
