2020 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

January 15, 2021
Hill (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers after returning to a limited practice Friday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
If Hill is available for Sunday night's 6:40 ET kickoff, he'd back up Drew Brees at QB while also providing the Saints offense with a versatile rushing/pass-catching option. Hill finished the regular season with rushing scores in each of New Orleans' final three contests.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
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.
