FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

The Saints have been talking up Mr. Hill's game since they giftwrapped Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks. Last year, Hill saw the third-most snaps among Saints tight ends. He trailed Ben Watson by nearly 300 snaps. Hill caught 14 of his 20 targets for 176 yards with five TDs. His value in the end zone was somewhat a factor of him being overlooked by defenses. In no game did Josh have more than three catches. His best outing as a receiver came in Week 5 when he caught three balls for 53 yards. He had a two-touchdown performance in Week 15. In his senior season at Idaho State, Hill caught 70 passes for 630 yards and five scores. He averaged only 8.9 yards per catch during his college career. New Orleans completed 117 passes to the TE for 1,195 yards and 16 TDs last season. Hill's youth and decent scoring ability should lead to him being Brees' No. 1 tight end this fall. With a 33 percent drop in opportunity based on the obvious drop down in talent, the Saints' TEs will have, at the minimum, a shot at 78 catches for 800 yards. I believe Hill will get 75 percent of that action, which comes out to about 59 catches and 600 yards. His early ADP has him coming off the board at pick No. 110 as the 11th tight end drafted. With seven TDs to go along with my projections above, Josh will be a top-12 Fantasy TE.
