Saints | Coby Fleener not reliable enough

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 07:16:39 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener hasn't been reliable enough catching passes and isn't on the same page with QB Drew Brees on some routes, according to beat writer Larry Holder. TE Josh Hill has been more involved in the passing game in recent practices.

Fantasy Tip: That breakout season for Fleener to thrust him into the fantasy spotlight is in question now. He has a lot of tools, and the offense has a history of making fantasy stars. Fleener will need to pick it up to rekindle some of the upside he had entering camp. He's a low-end TE1 for now, and Hill is a TE2 that could become a deep sleeper.

Saints | Josh Hill terms

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 08:32:19 -0700

Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill received a three-year, $7.1 million deal with $3.25 million guaranteed, according to a source. His deal can increase to $8.15 million with incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Hill failed to make an impact last season with a 16-120-2 year, and the team signed Coby Fleener. Hill probably isn't worth drafting, but keep an eye on him in camp.

Saints | Josh Hill staying with Saints

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 13:15:21 -0700

New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent TE Josh Hill will remain with the Saints after they matched the offer sheet he signed with the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Hill likely will be the No. 2 tight end behind Coby Fleener in 2016 and should not be an option for fantasy owners.

Bears | Chicago signs Josh Hill to offer sheet

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 14:09:56 -0700

New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent TE Josh Hill signed an undisclosed offer sheet from the Chicago Bears, Tuesday, March 22, according to a source. The Saints have five days to match the Bears' offer.

Fantasy Tip: This would be a nice move for the Bears if they can get it done. Hill would add needed depth at tight end behind Zach Miller. If the offer sheet isn't matched, Miller's fantasy value would take a little bit of a hit, but he would still have TE1 potential with Martellus Bennett now out of town.

Bears | Josh Hill visits Bears

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 14:03:36 -0700

New Orleans Saints restricted free-agent TE Josh Hill visited the Chicago Bears Monday, March 21, according to a source. Hill already visited the New York Jets last week.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Hill were signed by Chicago, Zach Miller would likely still be their primary tight end. Hill would put a little bit of a dent into Miller's fantasy value, though. Wherever Hill lands, he probably won't be worth starter consideration.

Saints | Josh Hill still thought of highly

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 21:08:25 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill is still thought of very highly by team management despite the fact TE Benjamin Watson was brought in and stepped up to fill the void of TE Jimmy Graham, not Hill, in 2015. "Josh Hill is a guy that's been in our building a while now," general manager Mickey Loomis said Tuesday, Feb. 16. "He's got talent, he's been for a couple years, he's kind of been in the background behind (Graham) when he was here and (Benjamin) last year as well."

Fantasy Tip: Hill might eventually get his shot, although the GM said the same is also high on Jack Tabb, and could look outside of the organization for additional help at the position either via the draft or free agency. For now, Hill is only worth investigating for use in the deepest of fantasy formats heading into 2016.

Saints | Josh Hill finds the end zone

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 22:08:48 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill had two receptions for 11 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Fellow TE Benjamin Watson had three grabs for 30 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is still not worth using in FantasyScore despite the touchdown. The veteran Watson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is slightly better for fantasy players, but his ceiling is also limited.
