Saints Beat: Ben Watson projected to start ahead of Josh Hill

ESPN - [Full Article]

Saints beat writer Mike Triplett projects Ben Watson to start ahead of Josh Hill, adding that Watson "will split time with rising young backup Josh Hill, but should play more snaps as a trusty blocker and underrated receiving option."

Fantasy Impact: 

Our only concern with Hill is that he doesn’t play ahead of Watson on early downs, which would limit his upside. HC Sean Payton has spoke highly of Hill, but referred to “two-TE sets” when discussing Hill’s potential playing time. This indicates that he may not be on the field in one-TE sets.
