Josh Hill News
New Orleans Saints tight end Josh Hill is expected to be the team's starting tight end in 2019, according to The New Orleans Times-Picayune's Josh Katzenstein. Veteran Benjamin Watson has retired, so Hill will have more opportunity next season. He caught just 16 passes (24 targets) for 185 yards and a touchdown in a full season in 2018, though, and he has 11 touchdowns in six years in New Orleans. Dan Arnold could factor in as well, so Hill is unlikely to suddenly become fantasy relevant.
The New Orleans Saints signed tight end Josh Hill to a three-year, $8.85 million extension through the 2021 season on Monday, according to sources. While Hill could have a bigger role in 2019 and beyond, he hasn't moved the needle at all in his six years in the league, catching exactly 16 passes in three of the last four seasons. He scored five times in 2014 but has three total touchdowns the last three years for the Saints. Hill won't be on the fantasy radar next fall or in DFS games in the playoffs.
New Orleans Saints tight end Josh Hill underwent surgery to repair the ring finger on his left hand. The finger had apparently been locked at a "90-degree angle" during the season. Including the playoffs, Hill caught 22 passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns. He is signed for $2 million for the 2018 season.
New Orleans Saints tight end Josh Hill caught three passes for 54 yards against Minnesota in the second round of the playoffs. Both are season highs for a sparsely-used tight end that was a backup for most of the year. Hill, like any receiver in the Saints offense, often has a chance to score or make a big play, but he isn't a dependable option. It's unclear what the Saints will do at the tight end position next year, as starter Coby Fleener has suffered several concussions in his career and ended the season on IR. Regardless, Hill's stock won't rise higher than it currently is.
New Orleans Saints tight end Josh Hill caught three of his four targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Wild-Card round. Hill came into the game bothered by an ankle injury but was never in doubt to play and wound up being a key part of the offense. It was a landmark game for Hill, who tied his season highs in both targets and receptions. He only had one touchdown all season entering the playoffs. Hill has had to take on a bigger role with tight end Coby Fleener (concussion) on Injured Reserve, but he can't be counted on as a huge threat on any given week.
