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 TE/whatever Taysom Hill found the end zone in Sunday's loss to the Vikings in London. Hill logged 5 rushing attempts in the game and ran 5 routes. His 2-yard rushing score came on his lone carry inside the red zone. Be careful of overrating his 2 rushing scores in 3 appearances.
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.
