Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • 2020 saw Hill’s most extensive time at QB to date. He went 88 of 121 for 928 yards, 4 TDs and 2 INTs (16 games). He rushed 87 times for 457 yards and 8 scores.
  • 6 of 8 rushing TDs came inside the 5 yard-line.
  • Hill was conservative with a 7.3-yard average depth of target.
  • That — and a QB-friendly scheme under HC Sean Payton — helped him rank #1 league-wide in adjusted completion rate (82.6%) among 41 QBs with 150+ dropbacks.
  • In 4 starts in place of Drew Brees, Hill finished as the QB5 (vs. Atlanta), QB14 (at Denver), QB8 (at Atlanta) and QB10 (at Philadelphia). A favorable slate for sure.
  • The small sample turned up inconsistent volume, as we’d expect: 23, 16, 37 and 38 pass attempts.
  • While Michael Thomas endured an injury-plagued 2020, he did suit up for each of Hill’s starts.
  • The Saints signed the hot/cold Jameis Winston as a low-cost backup last offseason. But interestingly, Hill started each of Brees’ absences.
  • The Saints re-signed Winston to a 1-year deal worth $5.5 million this offseason. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has called Winston the favorite to start.
  • HC Sean Payton, predictably, has indicated that both guys will compete for the job in training camp.
  • Consider this: Prior to this offseason, Hill’s offseason training centered around playing a number of different positions beyond QB (special teams, RB, WR.) Now he’s 100% focused on the starting QB job. Essentially, there might be another level to his game.
  • The Saints return a healthy Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara this fall — plus a breakout candidate in 2nd-year TE Adam Trautman. But the pass catching depth looks thin, especially at WR.
  • Led by guys like Ryan Ramczyk, Terron Armstead and Andrus Peat, New Orleans’ O-line remains a strength. They’ll look for improvement from 2020 weak link G Cesar Ruiz, last year’s 1st rounder.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Hill’s legs helped make him a strong fantasy streamer across 4 starts last season. Now, he’ll enter a training camp battle with Jameis Winston, who boasts superior arm talent and arm strength.

Even when it comes to Winston’s downfall — turnovers — Hill didn’t show much of an edge last year. He tossed 2 picks and fumbled 10 times.

We see this competition lasting until deep in training camp, with Winston ultimately being named the Week 1 starter. Such a move would keep Hill in his part-time role.

Saints QB Taysom Hill arrived to camp “noticeably slimmed down,” per Katherine Terrell of The Athletic. The change was intentional. “I think as a thrower it’s important to have a stronger backside than it is your frontside shoulder, and it’s natural to work your frontside muscles than it is your backside,” Hill said. “I can tell you for me historically when I get sore it’s all your (decelerating) motions from taking so many reps and throwing so many balls. So throughout my career here, I was always trying to find that balance of being strong enough to do what I was going to be asked to do, but still be able to throw a ball and so forth. So there was definitely a transition there.” This is the first time as a pro that he’s exclusively worked at QB, so the change in regimen makes sense. Last year alone, Hill lined up as a QB, RB, WR and TE — plus he held various special teams roles. No clear favorite has emerged as the QB1 in the early portion of training camp.

Here's the word from ESPN's Mike Triplett on the 1st Saints training-camp practice: "Taysom Hill got the first turn of training camp as New Orleans' starting quarterback during Thursday's practice. However, Jameis Winston generated more buzz with an efficient day." Triplett said Winston's rhythm, timing and patience looked better than last summer, which he conceded gave just a "small sample." We'll certainly be watching this QB competition through camp and the preseason.

The Boston Globe's Ben Volin hears from "league sources" that QB Taysom Hill is the favorite to start for the Saints this season. "If the experiment fails, [HC Sean] Payton can fall back on [QB Jameis] Winston and a more traditional pocket-based offense and move Hill back to his Swiss Army Knife role," Volin writes. This is the 1st time all offseason we've heard someone call Hill the favorite in this battle. Multiple Saints beat writers -- plus NFL Network's Ian Rapoport -- have tabbed Winston the starter. We're still leaning in that direction, but this will be 1 of the biggest position battles for fantasy owners to track this summer.

Saints QB Taysom Hill (knee) returned to a limited practice on Friday and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs. The versatile Hill's absence would be a tangible blow to New Orleans' offense -- but boost the outlooks for QB Drew Brees and RB Alvin Kamara.
