The New Orleans Saints have at least one more week with quarterback Taysom Hill handing the starting job while Drew Brees recovers. Hill has scored two touchdowns in each of his last three games, four on the ground and two in the air, giving the Saints offense a different look to confuse defenses. This week they’ll face the Eagles, and Hill is once again a decent QB2/streaming option.
Fantasy Football analysis: Saints QB Taysom Hill
Hill threw his first touchdown passes of the season last week against the Falcons. He had 232 yards to go with the two scores. He also picked up a season-high 83 yards on the ground, but did not score a rushing touchdown.
The Eagles have given up four touchdown passes to opposing quarterbacks in their last two games, snapping a three-game stretch where they didn’t allow a score through the air at all (which also coincided with illustrious passers like Daniel Jones and Ben DiNucci). What’s enticing about Hill in this matchup is how vulnerable Philly has been to quarterbacks on the ground. Daniel Jones 64 rushing yards and a touchdown back in Week 10 and 92 rushing yards in Week 7. Lamar Jackson burned them for 108 yards and a score in Week 6.
It points to Hill being a solid option again this week.
