Josh Hill caught 16 passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns on 30 targets last season for the Saints. The team signed Coby Fleener in free agency but if the former Colt were to suffer an injury, Hill would be first in line for starter reps at tight end. The Saints matched the Bears' offer for Hill in March, re-signing the restricted free agent to a three-year contract. Despite limited cap space, New Orleans still brought Hill back so clearly the team values his services.
Hill was considered a sleeper heading into last season but wound up being a fantasy bust. He was overshadowed by Ben Watson last year and will now take a backseat to Fleener in 2016. Fleener would have to suffer an injury for Hill to be relevant in fantasy.
2016 Bottom Line
Ranked as our TE49, Hill is going undrafted this year. Avoid him on draft night but if Fleener suffers an injury, be aware that Hill would be a coveted waiver wire pickup.
