Fantasy Impact:

Hill signed a two-year, $21 million contract with the Saints this off-season. He is expected to be the Saints’ QB of the future once Brees retires. “No smokescreen, he’s the guy,” said Glazer. “Sean Payton loves him but it’s not just him, the whole team loves him, not just Sean Payton. Watch a Saints game. When he’s in the game, watch the other players on the sideline, watch their reaction. They all get up and stand on the sidelines to watch him. I think Sean was always hoping to unleash him on the league without anyone seeing him before but now we’ve seen it with Lamar Jackson. He’s a bigger Lamar Jackson. No, it’s not a smokescreen. He likes him that much, he’ll be the guy. He’s with the perfect coach for that.” Hill recently gained TE eligibility in ESPN fantasy leagues. The 29-year-old hauled in 19 catches for 234 yards and six touchdowns in 2019. Hill will most likely be used as a gadget player in 2020, but it remains to be seen if he will be Brees’ future successor.
