Taysom Hill Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the mallet finger injury suffered by Saints QB Taysom Hill will not require surgery. That confirms it's less serious than the injury that knocked Russell Wilson out earlier this season. Hill will continue trying to play through it. We'll see how that goes. He showed in the 2nd half of Thursday night's game against the Cowboys, though, that he can help fantasy lineups even if passing is a struggle.

Saints QB Taysom Hill has Mallet Finger, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. If that sounds familiar, it's because it's the same injury that cost Seahawks QB Russell Wilson a month earlier this year. And Wilson hasn't looked the same since returning from that Week 5 injury. Hill's injury "may necessitate surgery at some point," per Rapoport. It sounds like Hill's injury might not be as severe as Wilson's, but it's certainly a major concern going forward. New Orleans might be forced to go back to QB Trevor Siemian. Stay tuned.

ESPN's Mike Triplett reports that Saints QB Taysom Hill will start Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys. Hill had been battling a foot injury but was a full-go in practice all week. We'll see if he has RB Alvin Kamara, OT Terron Armstead and OT Ryan Ramczyk, who are all listed as questionable with knee injuries.

Saints HC Sean Payton said "we'll see" when asked who will start at QB against the Cowboys on Thursday night. QB Taysom Hill (foot) has been a full-go in practice this week, but Payton still wants to see how his foot is feeling on Wednesday. Hill should be rostered in most fantasy leagues and will be a borderline QB1 if he gets the start on Thursday. We'll keep you updated on the situation.

Saints QB Taysom Hill took 1st-team reps in Monday's practice, ahead of QB Trevor Siemian, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The Saints appear poised to make a QB change," Rapoport adds. Siemian has racked up some numbers in garbage time over the last 4 weeks but has been largely underwhelming and failed to secure a win. Hill is probably an upgrade as a passer and, of course, adds a ton of value with his legs. On the fantasy side, Hill finished as a top 13 scorer in all 4 of his starts last season, averaging 52.3 yards and 1 TD on the ground per game. He'll be in the Week 13 QB1 mix if he's confirmed as New Orleans' starter.

The Saints and Taysom Hill agreed to a 4-year extension, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The deal reportedly pays Hill a $40 million base salary for the hybrid role he's currently playing. He can make up to $55 million more if he becomes New Orleans' starting QB. The team's handling of Hill has been curious, starting him over Jameis Winston last season and then keeping him behind Trevor Siemian the past 3 weeks.

Saints QB Trevor Siemian will start Sunday's game vs. the Titans, HC Sean Payton said Friday. Siemian played reasonably well in last week's loss to Atlanta, completing 25 of 41 passes for 249 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. He's just a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups, though.

Saints QB Trevor Siemian is expected to start Sunday's game vs. the Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's a surprise with QB Taysom Hill set to clear concussion protocol. It's unclear if Siemian is just the Week 9 starter or in line to start the rest of the way. He played well in relief of QB Jameis Winston in last week's win over the Bucs, completing 16 of 29 passes for 159 yards and a score. But in a run-leaning offense with no rushing upside, Siemian is an unexciting fantasy play.
