New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill will continue to play multiple position even if QB Drew Brees misses time in 2020, according to Larry Holder of The Athletic, and Holder believes QB Jameis Winston will take over the traditional backup role that Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater filled last year.
New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill will 'be the guy' when QB Drew Brees retires, according to Jay Glazer of The Athletic.
Fantasy Spin: Hill has been deployed as a Swiss Army knife-type weapon and has delivered big plays in that role. It remains to be seen if he can be successful as a full-time quarterback, but with a chance to eventually lead Sean Payton's offense, Hill is worth stashing in dynasty formats.
New Orleans Saints QBs Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill will have to compete and beat out the competition to back up QB Drew Brees in 2020, according to head coach Sean Payton Thursday, May 21.
Fantasy Spin: Whoever wins the backup job could be a rare QB handcuff after Brees, 41, was limited to 11 games by injury last season. The competition will also have an impact on dynasty and keeper leagues as the heir to Brees will be a hot commodity in years to come.
The Athletic's Jay Glazer says that New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill is the guy that the Saints believe can be the future starter when Drew Brees retires. Head coach Sean Payton loves Hill, but so does the entire team. The 29-year-old gadget player can do a lot on the football field, but there's plenty of reason for skepticism that he can be an effective NFL starter under center, most notably the fact that he's attempted just 13 passes since 2017. When Brees went down with an injury in 2019 and missed time, it was Teddy Bridgewater, not Hill that took over under center. Fantasy owners will surely want to see Hill succeed at the position before they invest in him in future seasons, but Hill surely can at least make things happen with his legs outside the pocket.
The New Orleans Saints re-signed Taysom Hill to a two-year contract extension worth $21 million, including $16 million guaranteed at the time of signing. The news comes right after the Jameis Winston signing, so it's been a busy day in the New Orleans quarterback room. The two will presumably battle it out for the backup job behind Drew Brees. The money may seem like a lot for a backup quarterback- Hill is much more than that to the Saints. He lined up under center, at running back, out wide, and as a tight end in the New Orleans offense last year.
New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill received a one-year extension on top of the one-year, $4.6 million tender he received in March, according to a source. His deal now runs through the 2021 season.
Fantasy Spin: There's no doubt Sean Payton loves to scheme up new ways to get the ball into Hill's hands, and the Swiss Army knife has carved up the hopes of fantasy owners in the process. Just when you think Alvin Kamara or another prized asset will give you points, bam! Hill swoops in with a trick play touchdown and the grumbles ensue. The fantasy tip: Prepare for at least two more years of this headache. Hill is extremely difficult to start in any conventional league on his own, that is unless positional versatility is afforded when setting a lineup.
New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent QB Taysom Hill does not plan on signing his one-year tender at this point but will participate in the virtual offseason program, according to a source.
New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said that the uniqueness of quarterback Taysom Hill's role requires the team to have a third quarterback active on game days, and that won't change in 2020 with Teddy Bridgewater now in Carolina. The Saints are likely to look for the best quarterback (rookie or a veteran) that is available to be the No. 3 behind Drew Brees and Hill. New Orleans thinks highly of Hill as the heir apparent to Brees, but he's attempted just 13 passes the last two seasons, including just six attempts despite Brees missing extended time in 2019 with a finger injury. The 29-year-old gadget player won't have any lasting fantasy significance in redraft leagues unless Brees gets injured again or retires.
New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent QB Taysom Hill received the first-round tender offer Monday, March 16.
Updating a previous report, restricted free-agent QB Taysom Hill (Saints) received a first-round tender from the New Orleans Saints on Monday, March 16.
The New Orleans Saints are planning to place a first-round tender on impending restricted free-agent quarterback Taysom Hill, according to a source. The Saints will have a chance to match an offer sheet that he could receive from another team. If he departs, they'd receive a first-round pick. It's looking increasingly likely that Hill will stay on board as the Saints QB of the future after Drew Brees retires, with Teddy Bridgewater likely hitting the open market and going elsewhere. Hill has mainly been used as a gadget player and receiver with New Orleans, though, so it remains to be seen if he'd be effective as the starting signal-caller. He's a dynasty league stash but won't have much redraft value unless Brees gets hurt.
New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent QB Taysom Hill is a player the Saints expect to sign to a new contract before the start of free agency.
New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent QB Taysom Hill will receive the first-round tender this offseason, according to a source.
The New Orleans Saints seem likely to give quarterback Taysom Hill, who will be a restricted free agent in March, at least a first- or second-round tender offer now that Drew Brees has announced he will return for at least one more season. Teddy Bridgewater is expected to have a big market in free agency and seems destined to leave town now that Brees is returning, so Hill would be in line as the heir apparent if Brees hangs up his cleats after the 2020 season. Hill attempted just six passes last year despite Brees missing time with injury, and it remains to be seen if they really believe he can be a franchise signal-caller in the long-term. He's a great Swiss Army knife for the Saints, but he probably won't have much fantasy appeal in redraft leagues next season unless Bridgewater leaves and Brees misses more games due to injury.
