Sean Payton won’t switch course from Taysom Hill after two wins in two starts. He still wants to see how Hill handles the job. And as stated earlier, the game plan shifted to ball control once Denver needed a practice squad wide receiver to play quarterback.
Payton said Hill played exactly how he wanted him too. Hill was only 9-for-16 for 78 yards through the air, but did have 10 carries, 44 yards and two touchdowns. And, Hill is 2-0 as the Saints starting quarterback. While Latavius Murray had a big day, the usual suspects like Thomas and Kamara had their fantasy production hurt by Hill, so those owning Saints may need to use some caution when figuring out lineups. But it also sounds like the Saints changed up their game plan knowing the struggles the Broncos would have at QB.
TB QB Jameis Winston - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Atlanta Falcons
Jameis Winston had another classic game of his last week, finishing with a strong 335 yards, but with just one touchdown and four interceptions. Winston has a chance this week to become the first-ever QB with 30+ touchdowns and 30+ interceptions in the same season, and he's also on pace to become just the seventh QB to throw for 5,000 yards in a season. It's been a weird season, but overall he's put up good numbers for fantasy. We expect that to be the case this week in a favorable matchup against the Falcons who have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. Winston topped 300 yards while throwing for three touchdowns against Atlanta earlier in the year, so we like him as a QB1 this week.
