New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill rushed for his first touchdown of the season in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins. Hill has significantly boosted the Saints offense with his dynamic play-making abilities and was finally rewarded with a touchdown during his five carries for 23 yards in Week 5. Regardless of the touchdown, Hill should still be avoided in all formats as he will certainly remain the backup quarterback to Drew Brees. Hill will likely continue to touch the ball around five times a game which is not nearly enough to be fantasy relevant.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill has been a dynamic weapon for the Saints offense early in the season, and head coach Sean Payton hopes to use him more in the future. Hill is listed as a quarterback on the Saints depth chart but has running and pass-catching abilities that allow him to take the field for wildcat and out of the ordinary type of plays. Hill has no fantasy value, but his ability to execute plays has provided a boost to the Saints offense in general.
The New Orleans Saints made a pair of waiver claims on Sunday, adding some depth to their skill positions on offense. Austin Carr, an undrafted free agent out of Northwestern, was claimed from the Patriots. He is mainly a slot receiver and could fill a temporary void left behind by Willie Snead's three-week suspension. The Saints also added quarterback Taysom Hill, just hours after waiving Garrett Grayson as their third QB. Hill is a BYU graduate who played with the Packers this preseason, completing 14 of 20 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns. Hill may not stick as anything but a practice squad player, but Carr does have a chance to make an impact if he impresses early on.
