Friday update: Hill has been removed from the injury report after back-to-back full practices.
Thursday update: Hill was upgraded on Thursday to a full practice. He should be fine to play this week and may have his number called more often with Jameis Winston looking very iffy to play.
The New Orleans Saints return from an emotional London loss to take on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5. One player who the Saints have tried to use in a variety of ways is Taysom Hill, who remains officially listed as a tight end but gets used more as a running back and potentially a quarterback.
Fantasy football implications
Hill has actually gotten some touches, with 12 carries in three games played. He also has two rushing touchdowns, which some fantasy managers can get excited about from the tight end spot. For those who don’t have the top tight ends in the league, Hill does have some upside as a runner. There’s the obvious risk he doesn’t get into the end zone at all, which would negate his fantasy value entirely. That’s a risk managers have to determine if they want to take with a player like Hill.
