Klint Kubiak is expected to be named the Saints' new OC, according to multiple reports. Kubiak is currently the 49ers' passing-game coordinator, so the move can't become official until after the Super Bowl. The 36-year-old son of Gary Kubiak has 10 seasons of NFL coaching experience. That includes serving as Vikings OC back in 2021. That team ranked 12th in total yards and 14th in points, ranking near the middle of the pack in run/pass split.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter both call Saints WR Chris Olave (ankle) a game-time decision for today's meeting with the Giants. But Rapoport adds that "there is not a lot of optimism that he can go." That's not a surprise after Olave missed practice all week. With WR Michael Thomas still on IR, Olave's absence would leave Rashid Shaheed as the best fantasy bet in New Orleans' WR corps. A.T. Perry, Lynn Bowden, Keith Kirkwood, and Marquez Callaway would round out the group. Olave's absence could also mean bigger roles for TE Taysom Hill and RB Alvin Kamara in the passing game. We've removed Olave from the Week 15 Rankings and updated Saints projections.

Saints TE Taysom Hill (foot, left hand) is not listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He’ll be back for Sunday’s game vs. the Giants after putting in a full practice on Friday. Hill remains a high-upside option in fantasy leagues where he’s TE-eligible.

Saints TE Taysom Hill (foot, left hand) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a chance to play vs. the Giants this weekend after missing last week's game. We'll keep you updated on Hill's status over the next few days.

Saints TE Taysom Hill (foot, left hand) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. He leaves behind an average of 5.8 carries and 2.8 targets per game. RB Alvin Kamara gets the biggest projection boost with Hill out.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Saints TE Taysom Hill (foot, left hand) is not expected to play vs. the Panthers today. He's averaged 5.8 carries and 2.8 targets per game this season and is tied for the team lead with seven carries inside the five-yard line. Hill's absence today is particularly good news for RB Alvin Kamara's TD projection. TE Juwan Johnson (quad) is expected to play today, per Schefter, but remains a desperation fantasy option.

Asked whether Taysom Hill will play Sunday against the Panthers, Saints beat writer Nick Underhill said, "I'd be surprised but we'll see." Hill's officially questionable with foot and hand injuries, but you should plan as though he's not playing against Carolina. That can only help TE Juwan Johnson's playing time and the goal-line opportunities for New Orleans RBs. We'll confirm Hill's status Sunday morning.

Saints TE Taysom Hill (foot, left hand) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Panthers. He didn’t practice all week, so he’s seemingly on the doubtful side of questionable. Hill has averaged 5.8 carries and 2.8 targets per game this season. And he’s tied for the team lead with seven carries inside the five-yard line. Hill’s absence would leave behind quite a bit of opportunity, with RB Alvin Kamara being the biggest winner.

Saints TE Taysom Hill (foot, left hand) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Dennis Allen said that Hill will be evaluated throughout the week, so there's seemingly some chance that he's unable to play vs. the Panthers this weekend. We'll keep tabs on Hill's status over the next few days.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (quad) is "likely" to miss Sunday's game against the Lions, according to insider Nick Underhill. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that Shaheed avoided a major injury, so he can stay stashed on benches in deeper fantasy leagues. WR Chris Olave is also iffy for Week 13 with his concussion, which could leave A.T. Perry, Keith Kirkwood, and Lynn Bowden as New Orleans' top three WRs. We'd expect to see a lot of Alvin Kamara, Taysom Hill, and Juwan Johnson in that case.

Saints WR Chris Olave hauled 6 of 8 targets for 46 receiving yards with 1 TD in Week 9 vs. the Bears. He’s the only non-RB to exceed 30 receiving yards in this contest. The biggest takeaway from Sunday’s action is the continued dominance of TE hybrid Taysom Hill. He accumulated 65 total yards with 4 catches and a receiving TD, totaling 20.6 PPR points. It’s difficult to know when to trust Hill, but he’s worth starting as long as he stays hot.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (calf) is not listed on the final Week 8 injury report. He’ll be back for Sunday’s game vs. the Colts after missing the previous four weeks. We’ll see how routes and targets are divvied between Johnson and Taysom Hill, but neither is a reliable Week 8 fantasy play.

Saints HC Dennis Allen said Monday that he expects TE Juwan Johnson (calf) back for this weekend's game vs. the Colts. Johnson has missed the last three games with a calf injury. Taysom Hill has led Saints TEs in routes in all three of those games and racked up 13 targets over the last two. We'll see what the TE room looks like with Johnson back in the mix. His return makes Hill a risky Week 8 fantasy play.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (calf) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. TE Taysom Hill came out of nowhere last week to register a 65% route rate and career-high eight targets. We'd still try not to use him in season-long fantasy lineups, but he's an intriguing play in one-game DFS contests.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (calf) did not practice on Tuesday. It doesn't look like he'll make it back for Thursday night's game vs. the Jaguars. Taysom Hill led Saints TEs with a 65% route rate and eight targets last week.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (calf) did not practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. TEs Taysom Hill, Foster Moreau, and Jimmy Graham split routes with Johnson out last week. None can be trusted in Week 6 fantasy lineups.

Saints RB Jamaal Williams is expected to miss “some time” with his hamstring injury, HC Dennis Allen said Tuesday. We'll see exactly how long Williams is out, but it sounds like he'll at least miss this Sunday's game vs. the Packers. That's the final game of RB Alvin Kamara's three-game suspension, while rookie RB Kendre Miller is still working back from knee and hamstring injuries. So the Saints could be down to Tony Jones as lead back this weekend. We could also see Taysom Hill play a big role on the ground. He wound up carrying nine times for 75 yards in the Week 2 win over the Panthers.

The Saints have listed Taysom Hill at QB for Week 1 after listing him as a TE throughout the summer. This probably doesn't mean anything for how he'll actually be used this season. But make sure you check to see how he's designated in your league. The FFPC, for one, has changed Hill's position designation from TE to QB for both upcoming and completed drafts. The primary allure to Hill at any position is that he has the upside to potentially play QB in any given week. He obviously carries much more upside -- and starting potential -- as a fantasy TE than QB, though. We're keeping him at TE, barring a major shift in Hill's designation across the fantasy landscape.
