News: 5 hours agoHill (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional-round game against the Buccaneers, isn't expected to play, Ian Rapoport and Jane Slater of NFL Network report.
Spin: The Saints will presumably re-evaluate Hill in a workout early Sunday before ruling on his status ahead of the 6:40 p.m. ET kickoff, but the 30-year-old looks to be trending in the wrong direction after he managed only one limited practice this week while battling the knee injury. In addition to Hill, the Saints are also expected to be without the services of No. 2 running back Latavius Murray (quadriceps), so Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara would both seem less likely to lose out on scoring opportunities in the red zone.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Hill is back in New Orleans and, while technically a quarterback on the roster, he will continue to operate as a gadget player and thus has tight end eligibility in ESPN Fantasy leagues. In two full regular seasons on the roster, Hill has registered 13 pass attempts, 64 carries and 22 receptions. He caught six touchdowns during the 2019 regular season, but those six came on seven targets inside the 10-yard line, which is obviously unsustainable. Hill's role allowed him no fantasy value when designiated as a QB (one weekly finish better than 18th), but his 2019 point total would've ranked 21st at tight end. He's on the TE2 radar in deep leagues. Note that Hill will be stripped of TE/Flex eligibility and changed to a QB if positioned as the Saints' starter at any point this season.
