2024 RTSports Outlook

Hill played a variety of roles once again last year but served as a true tight end a lot more often. He set a career high in receptions, catching 33 passes for 291 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran 81 times for 401 yards and four touchdowns. He had 692 total yards and six touchdowns. Hill also was 6-of-11 for 83 yards and a touchdown throwing the ball. All his production made him 12th overall in fantasy tight end scoring. He had seven games with double-digit fantasy points, including two 20-plus point performances. Expect more of the same from Hill this year. He has 650-plus total yards two straight seasons. Hill has good speed 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, especially on deeper throws. Hill is a much improved pass catcher and can be a load to bring down as a running back because of his size. He does well in goal-line situations, giving him good touchdown potential.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Hill is a tough fantasy player to gauge. He is going to have some big games but is not going to be super consistent. He is an easier play in best ball leagues because of his inconsistent production. But if you want to roll the dice with him in standard leagues, consider him more of a platoon player. He can get around 600 total yards and seven touchdowns.

RotoBaller's Outlook

New Orleans' multidimensional wunderkind is one of the most unique talents in the NFL. The past two seasons Hill has played and qualified as a tight end in fantasy formats, yet he does much of his damage when he gets under center as the Saints' run/pass double trouble in special packages created just for him. In 2023, Hill ran for 401 yards and four touchdowns, caught 33 passes for 291 yards and two more scores, and threw for 83 yards and another TD. Combine everything together and Hill gave fantasy managers 775 total yards and seven combined touchdowns, which is superb for a tight end. His role in New Orleans' offense probably will not change much in 2024. The Saints did not add any impact skilled-position players via free agency or the draft, so Hill's talents will be leaned upon more than ever. With veterans Juwan Johnson and Foster Moreau on the roster, the jury is out on how often Hill will be needed at tight end, but as long as he still qualifies there in fantasy leagues he should be a top-12 to a top-20 TE. If Hill does not qualify as a tight end in your league, though, he is not worth drafting as a fantasy QB,

Player Notes
Jun 14 12:20pm ET

The New Orleans Saints restructured tight end Taysom Hill's contract on Thursday, converting his base salary for 2024 to free up some salary cap room. Hill's cap number went from $15.7 million to $6.8 million with the move. The 33-year-old continues to be listed as a tight end for fantasy purposes, but he's apparently being involved more as a running back/fullback in new offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak's scheme during offseason workouts. Juwan Johnson's foot injury will also open up more pass-catching opportunities for Hill in training camp this summer as a traditional tight end. Most of Hill's production in 2023 came as a quarterback in wild-cat formations for the Saints. His versatile skill set makes him intriguing as a TE2 in fantasy, but it has been nearly impossible to predict how the Saints will use him on a weekly basis.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill reportedly agreed to a restructured contract that converted his base salary to a signing bonus and lowered his salary cap number from $15.7 million to $6.8 million.

New Orleans Saints hybrid offensive player Taysom Hill was seen taking direct snaps out of the backfield at organized team activities on Tuesday while also working with the special teams unit. SI.com's John Hendrix wrote that seeing Hill in the backfield is starting to be a pretty exciting thing. He lined up as the running back in shotgun formation and took the run left for a nice gain. In addition to taking direct snaps out of the backfield, Hill also caught some passes from quarterback Derek Carr as a pass-catcher. It remains to be seen exactly how Hill will be used in new offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak's system, but he could be on the field often in a variety of roles. With tight end eligibility in fantasy, he will at least have value as a low-end TE1 with the possibility for more if he's more active as a ball-carrier out of the backfield in 2024.

New Orleans Saints TE Taysom Hill's unique skill set has been on full display during organized team activities, according to Matthew Paras of NOLA.com. For example, Hill took part in individual drills with the running backs last week and is working with the tight ends this week. 'It's been a lot of fun. It's weird to say after seven years of doing what I've been doing that I'm being asked to do things I've never done before. That is exciting to me and it's challenging, and I love to be challenged like that. I'm grateful for those guys creating unique and fun opportunities for me,' Hill said.

Fantasy Spin: According to Paras, Hill has yet to throw a ball once in a live setting this spring, but he has lined up at running back and fullback several times. Furthermore, head coach Dennis Allen apparently "entertained" a reporter's suggestion that Hill might be the Saints' version of Kyle Juszczyk in new offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak's offense. While it is unlikely Hill will top last year's career year (114 touches for 692 yards), fantasy managers should expect him to remain a key complementary part of the offense again in 2024.

New Orleans Saints utility player Taysom Hill could have a significant role in 2024 under new offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak, according to Saints reporter Jeff Duncan. The veteran has acted as a quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end, return man, and special teams ace in his seven-year career with New Orleans. Overall, he has posted 2,348 passing yards, 2,159 rushing yards, 756 receiving yards, 447 return yards, and 49 total touchdowns. Due to his tight end eligibility in lineups, he remains on the fantasy football radar, especially after this report. Hill has posted top-10 half-PPR finishes among tight ends in each of the last two seasons, and he could be primed to do it again in 2024.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill rushed for 51 yards on six carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 18. He also caught four passes for 28 yards during the game.

New Orleans Saints tight end Taysom Hill saw work both on the ground and through the air with Alvin Kamara (ankle) missing Week 18's win. Hill carried the ball six times for 51 yards, ripping off a game-long 27-yarder. He also caught all four targets for 28 yards. The versatile playmaker lined up all over the field, helping the Saints pick apart the Atlanta defense for 48 points. New Orleans will now await the result of both the Green Bay and Seattle games as he Saints hold onto hopes of sneaking into the playoffs.

New Orleans Saints tight end Taysom Hill saw a slightly increased role in Week 17 as he continued to work his way back from injury, scoring his second receiving touchdown of the season. With Alvin Kamara (ankle) not practicing all week and Juwan Johnson (chest) also banged up, the opportunity for Hill to get involved both on the ground and through the air should arise. The Atlanta Falcons surrender 20.3 points per game to opponents, ranking ninth-best in the league. Hill offers upside due to potential increased usage, but the statuses of Kamara and Johnson should be monitored before plugging him into lineups.

New Orleans Saints gadget player Taysom Hill carved out a role in the Week 17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, finding the endzone for the sixth time this season. Hill completed 1-of-2 passes for 11 yards, carried the ball twice for one yard, and caught both targets for 30 yards and a touchdown. While it was not his most productive day yardage-wise, Hill salvaged his fantasy day with a touchdown. He will be a low-floor, high-ceiling play in Week 18 against the Atlanta Falcons.

New Orleans Saints TE Taysom Hill completed one of his two passes for 11 yards, ran for one yard on two carries and caught both of his targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

New Orleans Saints gadget player Taysom Hill has seen a limited role since returning from injury. Hill played 19% of snaps in Week 15 and 17% of snaps in Week 16, totaling just four touches. In a must-win Week 17 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it remains unclear just how involved Hill will be in New Orleans' gameplan. The Swiss army knife has been a fantasy goldmine at times, but the unpredictable nature of his boom games makes him far too risky of an option to insert into lineups during championship week. Look elsewhere for a tight end in championship week.

New Orleans Saints TE Taysom Hill had two carries for two yards in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.
