Saints TE Josh Hill caught two passes for 15 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 15 win over the Bears.

They were the only two targets Hill saw on the night. He now has five touchdowns on the season on 20 targets. The Week 15 scores came at a horrible time for Jimmy Graham owners. Hill is obviously not a fantasy option.

Saints TE Josh Hill is expected to see "a little" more production if Jimmy Graham (shoulder) sits out Sunday.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett expects the biggest beneficiary of Graham's likely absence to be Marques Colston. After that, Brandin Cooks, Kenny Stills, Ben Watson and Hill will also get a slight boost in targets. Hill does not project to see enough volume to make him much more than a touchdown-dependent TE2.

Josh Hill caught 2-of-2 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 3 win over the Vikings.

The targets were Hill's second and third of the season, while the score was the second of his career. With the Vikings fixated on Jimmy Graham, Hill got left all alone on his 34-yard score in the first quarter. He'll be lucky to find pay dirt again this season.

As Jimmy Graham stays away from OTAs, second-year TE Josh Hill is handling first-team reps with veteran Ben Watson.

Hill is something of a super-deep sleeper. He made the Saints as a 2013 undrafted rookie out of Idaho State, and offers plus speed (4.66) to go with a highly explosive broad jump of 10-foot-7 at 6-foot-5 and 246 pounds. Hill is someone to consider grabbing in Dynasty leagues. He could appear on the re-draft radar if Graham missed regular season time due to injury or holdout.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett reports the team is high on second-year TE Josh Hill.

Hill, an undrafted free agent out of Idaho State, played 246 offensive snaps as a rookie and saw plenty of action in the playoffs as the No. 3 tight end. At his Pro Day, Hill posted a 4.66 forty and 36.5-inch vertical. A catch-first tight end with plus athleticism, the Saints could be grooming Hill for eventual No. 2 duties.

Saints TE Josh Hill caught one pass for 23 yards in New Orleans' Divisional Round loss to the Seahawks.

An undrafted rookie out of small-school Idaho State, Hill did a nice Jimmy Graham impression on his 23-yard catch, going airborne to make the grab. Hill won a roster spot in training camp, finishing the regular season with six catches for 44 yards and a touchdown. He'll have an inside track on a 2014 roster spot.
