Hill took a big step forward in year two, being used in all sorts of ways to help spark the Saints offense. He did most of his damage as a runner, rushing 37 times for 196 yards and two touchdowns. He also had three receptions on seven targets. He was 3-of-7 for 64 yards with an interception throwing the ball. Hill got most of his work out of the wildcat formation, being used more as a runner than quarterback. Expect the Saints to continue to use him in similar ways. Hill is a top athlete and playmaker. He has great speed for the quarterback spot and is a load to bring down in the open field because of his size and strength. Hill isn't much of a thrower, lacking some accuracy and touch. He is improving in that area some, though, and might get a few more chances to air it out this year.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Hill is not worth using for fantasy teams because you aren't sure how much he will be used on a weekly basis. He will be too hit or miss. Plus, Hill won't produce enough as a fantasy quarterback to play over nearly any starter in the NFL.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill said he feels more comfortable with the responsibilities of being a wide receiver this season. 'I think it will be even easier because there was definitely a learning curve from a fundamental standpoint of getting out of breaks and routes and blocking all that I feel more comfortable doing that.'
