Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill is retiring from the NFL.

Hill signed with the Lions earlier this offseason, but he's now opting to call it a career instead. This means that Hill will have spent his entire eight-year career with the Saints, which is quite the accomplishment after he was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2013. Hill's career ends with 116 receptions for 1,071 yards and 15 touchdowns. After a solid NFL career as an undrafted player, we wish Hill the best of luck on whatever he does next.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

The Lions signed Josh Hill.

Hill was recently released by the Saints, and he quickly lands with former Saints assistant and new Lions head coach Dan Campbell. The veteran tight end should be a good presence for third-year tight end T.J. Hockenson to lean on in 2021.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

The Saints released Josh Hill.

Hill is being released along with Jared Cook, as the Saints get set to feature second-year tight end Adam Trautman at the position. Hill might land back with New Orleans at some point given his familiarity with the team.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill (concussion) is out for the rest of today's game.

Before leaving, Hill had two receptions for eight yards against the Buccaneers. Hopefully the veteran tight end is feeling better soon.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of the NFC Championship.

Hill was injured early in the game, and he's been ruled out as we head to halftime. Before leaving, Hill had one reception for 24 yards. Hopefully he's feeling better soon, and we should see him in the Super Bowl in a couple weeks if the Saints advance.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill is in concussion protocol.

Hill took a hit to the head on a 24-yard reception and the officials made him get off the field to get checked out. He's now in the locker room getting looked at, and hopefully he can clear concussion protocol and get back on the field in the NFC title game.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches three passes in Saints' playoff win.

Hill gained seven yards on his three receptions in the Divisional Round win against the Eagles. Hill will remain a secondary option for New Orleans in the NFC title game in one week.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill held without a catch in Week 17 loss.

He ends the regular season with 16 receptions for 185 yards and one touchdown, but Hill will remain in New Orleans for the foreseeable future after reportedly signing a three-year extension. Now, the team will look to make a playoff run starting in a couple weeks.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches two passes in Week 16.

Hill gained one yard on his two reception against the Steelers. He's not a fantasy option right now.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches two passes in Saints' win.

Hill gained 24 yards on his two receptions versus Carolina. Hill is a better real-life contributor than fantasy asset, and he's not a recommended option heading into fantasy title games.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches two passes in Saints' win.

Hill gained 26 yards on his two receptions against the Eagles. The number of weapons in the Saints offense makes it difficult to trust Hill in fantasy lineups.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches two passes in Saints' Week 9 win.

Hill gained ten yards on his two receptions against the Rams. He's a better real-life contributor for the Saints than he is a fantasy asset right now.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill scores in win over the Redskins.

Hill caught two passes for 24 yards, including a one-yard touchdown in the first quarter. The 28-year-old is always a threat to find the end zone with Sean Payton scheming plays, but he isn't a recommended fantasy option when the Saints return from their Week 6 bye.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill leads the Saints in Week 4 receiving.

Hill caught all three targets against the Giants, gaining 63 yards in the win. He had a key catch late in the game with New Orleans backed against their own goal line, helping create some room to ice the game. Hill is not on the fantasy radar right now, as he's just real-life contributor for the Saints.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches 17-yard pass in win over the Falcons.

It was his only reception of the game. Hill isn't a fantasy option with veteran Benjamin Watson healthy and productive.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches one pass in Week 2.

Hill's lone reception went for five yards. He's difficult to trust in fantasy lineups as long as Benjamin Watson remains on the field.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches one pass in loss to Bucs.

Hill gained 15 yards on his one reception in the Week 1 loss. Benjamin Watson is the top tight end for the Saints, making it difficult to trust Hill in fantasy lineups.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches three passes in the Divisional Round.

Hill was targeted six times against the Vikings, gaining 54 yards on his three receptions. Hill had a key reception late in the game, catching a pass over the middle to help get the Saints into field goal range for a go-ahead field goal, but the Vikings stormed back and scored with no time remaining. The tight end situation for New Orleans doesn't produce the same amount of fantasy production it once did, so Hill isn't a recommended fantasy option in drafts this summer.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill scores in Wild Card Weekend win.

It was a nine-yard reception in the second quarter, and Hill finished with three receptions for 49 yards and the score. The performance was probably Hill's best of the season, and he will look to keep it up next Sunday in Minnesota with an NFC Championship berth on the line.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches eight-yard pass in Week 17 loss.

It was his only reception of the game. Hill finishes the regular season with a 16/125/1 line. He'll look to make some plays in the postseason for New Orleans, and that starts next week against the Panthers.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches one pass in win over the Jets.

It went for 22 yards. The 27-year-old isn't a fantasy option on a loaded offense that revolves around Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram, and Michael Thomas. Keep him on the waiver wire.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill catches two passes in Week 14.

Hill gained 14 yards on his two receptions, and his third and final target was intercepted by Falcons linebacker Keanu Neal in the end zone to basically seal the game, as Drew Brees threw a high-pointed pass that didn't get high enough and was picked off. Hill could have a fantasy-startworthy week as a tight end for Drew Brees, but he's impossible to trust in fantasy lineups with confidence.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill caught one pass for eight yards in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Hill lost a fumble on his only reception when safety Mike Adams punched it out, but it didn't end up costing the Saints. With Coby Fleener on IR, Hill will be the starter for the rest of the year, but he isn't a strong fantasy play down the stretch.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill scores in Week 11.

Hill got basically wide open on a play-action pass by the goal line for a three-yard score on his lone reception of the day. Despite his real-life contributions, Hill is not a fantasy option.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill fumbles against the Bills.

Hill was targeted in Bills' territory and caught a pass for -2 yards, but he fumbled and lost it on New Orleans' only turnover of the game. Hill is a good contributor in real life, but he's not a fantasy option.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill gets four targets in Saints' win.

Hill caught three of the four targets, gaining 29 yards against Chicago. He's not a recommended fantasy option, but Hill is a good target for Drew Brees.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill caught three passes for 29 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Hill is going to make some plays for New Orleans, but he isn't a fantasy option behind Coby Fleener. The Saints travel to Carolina in Week 3.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill caught three passes for 27 yards and a touchdown in the team's preseason finale.

Hill's score came from Chase Daniel in the second quarter. New Orleans rested their guys for the most part, but both Hill and Coby Fleener played in last night's game.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill caught a one-yard pass in Thursday night's preseason game.

Hill isn't projected to be a fantasy contributor with Coby Fleener healthy, but we have seen Sean Payton change things up at the position before. New Orleans plays the Chargers next.

Josh Hill has quiet day after good Week 12.

Hill caught just one pass for three yards and was targeted twice. People were losing their minds after Hill out-performed Coby Fleener last week, but it was just an outlier, as Fleener led the team in yards for Week 13. Hill shouldn't be rostered.

Josh Hill | Retired TE

Josh Hill gets involved in Saints blowout win over the Rams.

Hill had six catches for 74 yards in the game. It was only Hill's fifth game of the season with a catch. There is a chance he gets more involved moving forward after this game, but you should wait it out—he should remain on the waiver wire.
