Saints TE Taysom Hill (rib) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. His absence could free up some goal-line opportunities for RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints weapon Taysom Hill (rib) is not expected to play vs. the Panthers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hill has tallied 7 carries and 1 target on 22 offensive snaps through 2 games, so his absence opens up a few touches in New Orleans.

Saints TE Taysom Hill (rib) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. We'll find out whether he's active around 11:30 am ET, but hopefully you're not relying on Hill in lineup-setting fantasy leagues.

Saints TE(?) Taysom Hill led the team with 81 rushing yards and scored the lone ground TD in Sunday's clock-beating win over the Falcons. Hill ran only 4 times for the game, with a 57-yard scamper and 11-yard TD on the same 1st-quarter drive providing most of the production. Hill added a 2-yard catch on his lone target. This doesn't look like the kind of role that will make him startable at TE (or QB where designated) in lineup-setting leagues. We'll see whether he can continue delivering for best-ball squads, however, and just how much he gets in Alvin Kamara's way.

Saints TE Taysom Hill (ribs) returned to practice on Monday. Following an absence of about 10 days, he wore a red, non-contact jersey, per reporter Katherine Terrell. Hill’s only draftable in deep formats or best ball leagues where he’s listed at TE, in hopes that he'll see some time at QB.

The Saints are set to sign TE Chris Herndon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Herndon flamed out with the Jets and then caught just 4 balls for the Vikings last year. New Orleans' TE depth start is a bit fluid with Adam Trautman and Taysom Hill at the top, but we'd still consider Herndon a long shot to earn a significant role.

Saints weapon Taysom Hill injured his ribs in Thursday's practice, HC Dennis Allen said. Allen said Hill will miss some time but didn't give an exact timetable. We'll see when he's able to get back out there. Hill is expected to play a hybrid TE/gadget role this season.

New Saints HC Dennis Allen talked about his team's plans for Taysom Hill this season. "It's going to be very similar to what we've seen in the past," Allen said. "He's going to provide multiple roles for us. There'll be a lot of working with the TE grouping, but yet he'll still take some snaps from the QB position. We're still going to utilize him in that role." Hill is an intriguing fantasy prospect now that he's listed at TE on most commissioning sites. If he sees just a few targets per game -- but also adds a few carries, including near the goal line -- he could provide some TE1 weeks.

New Saints HC Dennis Allen said Tuesday that QB Taysom Hill will have a role shift in 2022. According to Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football, Hill will focus primarily on TE this year. Hill has just 34 career receptions, with more than half of those (19) coming in 2019. He, of course, has played varied roles for the Saints in his time. If you play DFS, you might remember 2 years ago when Hill got the surprise start over Jameis Winston at QB after Drew Brees went down and carried a TE designation on FanDuel. We'll see how league-hosting sites elect to treat Hill in 2022. We wouldn't bet on him attaining regular fantasy relevance at any position, though -- barring an injury to Winston and return to starting QB. Adam Trautman should be the team's lead TE.

Saints insider Nick Underhill reports that HC Sean Payton is retiring. Payton has been at the helm in New Orleans since 2006, leading the Saints to an incredible 13 top-10 finishes in total offense. He's 1 of the best offensive minds in the game, so this is a big loss for guys like RB Alvin Kamara and WR Michael Thomas. We're also curious to see what the new coaching staff's plans are for Taysom Hill.

Saints HC Sean Payton said Monday that QB Taysom Hill will have 2 surgeries to repair the Lisfranc injury in his left foot. The 1st procedure will repair the injury with a piece of hardware; the 2nd will be later to remove that hardware. Payton didn't have a projected timeline for recovery for Hill. But, based on the fact that Hill needs 2 surgeries, former NFL head team Dr. David Chao expects him to be sidelined for 6-9 months. The long end of that timetable would threaten his availability for the start of the 2022 campaign. We'll monitor Hill's rehab this offseason.

Saints QB Taysom Hill was knocked out of Sunday's game vs. the Falcons with what HC Sean Payton told Fox's Laura Okmin is a Lisfranc injury to his left foot. We'll look for more details, but that's an issue that'll likely keep Hill from playing in the playoffs if New Orleans gets there. Hill's absence would leave QB Trevor Siemian as the Saints' starter.

Saints QB Taysom Hill has been activated from the COVID list. He should be back under center vs. the Panthers on Sunday and will be a low-end QB1 option for Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Saints QB Taysom Hill has been placed on the COVID list. He's joined by QB Trevor Siemian. That leaves 4th-round rookie QB Ian Book to make his 1st career start vs. the Dolphins on Monday Night Football. The Notre Dame product was a mediocre college passer, leaving school with a 63.8% completion rate, 7.8 yards per attempt and 72 TDs vs. 20 INTs. He did run for 1,517 yards and 17 TDs over 4 college seasons -- and then ran a 4.65-second 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. Book goes just 6'0 and 211 pounds, though, so he's no Taysom Hill. Book is only in play for DFS showdown contests. Expect a heavy dose of RBs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram on Monday night.

Saints HC Sean Payton has tested positive for COVID and will miss Sunday night's game vs. the Bucs. One of the best offensive minds in the game and New Orleans' play caller, Payton's absence will be felt. Consider it a slight downgrade for QB Taysom Hill and RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints QB Taysom Hill (finger) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. “If I wasn’t okay [with Hill’s health], I wouldn’t be playing him,” Sean Payton said Friday. Hill is in the QB1 mix against the league’s 30th-ranked QB defense.

Saints QB Taysom Hill (finger) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It's confirmation that he's set to play through his mallet finger, which reportedly isn't nearly as serious as Russell Wilson's. Hill's passing projection is shaky with this injury, although the matchup vs. the Jets helps. But as long as he keeps running, Hill is a good bet for QB1 production.
