30-Year-Old QuarterbackQB

New Orleans Saints




$Signed a one-year, $12.16 million restructured contract with the Saints in March of 2021.

April 21, 2021

ANALYSIS
Prior to logging snaps at six offensive positions in 2020, per Pro Football Focus, Hill said he spent previous offseasons by preparing to play in a variety of roles on offense and special teams. With Drew Brees now retired, there’s an open window for Hill to secure the starting quarterback gig in New Orleans and, for seemingly the first time in his professional career, it appears he is exclusively being coached to play that one position. While the 30-year-old will face competition from fellow incumbent backup QB Jameis Winston this offseason, it was Hill who the Saints chose as the starter when Brees was injured for four games last season. Accordingly, the job may be Hill’s to lose, especially after coach Sean Payton previously expressed doubt in March that New Orleans will add another signal-caller to the mix.

Past Fantasy Outlooks




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.
