Week 9 Free Agent Focus

Taysom Hill, QB, Saints

Blind-bid recommendation: 5-20%

Trevor Siemian took over for Jameis Winston Sunday and was solid, completing 16 of 29 passes for 159 yards and a score in the win. But Hill figures to start once he clears the concussion protocol, and NBC reported Sunday night that Hill is expected to be ready for Week 9. Remember that Hill was super productive in fantasy football last year, finishing as a top 13 QB in all 4 of his starts.

The early indication on Winston is a significant ACL injury -- and it sounds like he could be done for the season. That adds value to Hill, whose value will vary significantly by league. If you're hard up for QB help then don't be afraid to pay more for Hill than you normally would for a mid-season QB. Assuming he's ready for Week 9, Hill's 1st start would come in a high-upside matchup with Atlanta.
