New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill is unlikely to be a regular fantasy contributor anytime soon, but for the time being, he’s a fun one to watch from a purely football perspective. The Saints use him in a variety of gadget roles, and he has used that to score two touchdowns in the first half against the Atlanta Falcons on Thanksgiving. And while it does not count for you in fantasy if you didn’t start the Saints D/ST, he also blocked a punt.
He scored his first touchdown early in the first quarter on a three-yard pass from Drew Brees following the blocked punt.

Within 5 plays:
He added a second score late in the second quarter on a 30-yard rush. He broke into the open field and had little trouble getting to the end zone.

Through one half, Hill has 42 total yards to go with his two touchdowns. He is not a guy you’ll be rostering in fantasy football, but maybe one day he turns into something a little bit more.
