2. TE Taysom Hill, New Orleans Saints
Taysom Hill had a big performance against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5. Hill had nine carries for 112 yards and three touchdowns; he also completed one pass for a 22-yard touchdown. It marked only the second time this season that a tight end eclipsed 30 fantasy points in a single game.
Hill is currently eligible at tight end in fantasy football leagues, which gives him exponentially more value. If you did not draft Mark Andrews or Travis Kelce, it is hard to find consistent production at the tight end position. Hill’s game on Sunday already catapulted him into being a top-10 fantasy tight end this season.
Jameis Winston, Michael Thomas, Jarvis Landry, and Chris Olave are all dealing with injuries. In the short term, the Saints could continue to look to Hill for an offensive spark. In his five-year career, Hill has 21 rushing touchdowns and seven receiving touchdowns.
With a rostered percentage of only 11.4 percent, Hill is an excellent pickup in fantasy leagues. He has a high ceiling, and he plays the shallowest position.
