Taysom Hill, TE (NO)

Too many turnovers in loss

Hill completed 19 of 41 passes for 264 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions in the Saints' 27-17 loss to the Cowboys on Thursday night. He also rushed 11 times for 101 yards and played with a split on his finger after hitting it on the hand of a pass rusher early in the contest, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Hill played serviceably as a passer for significant swaths of the contest, and his work on the ground was outstanding, especially in the absence of Alvin Kamara (knee). However, the BYU product, understandably rusty after not having drawn a start under center all season, short-circuited too many drives, particularly in the second half, with his errant throws. Three of the four picks Hill threw came in consecutive possessions during the fourth quarter, with the final one a pick-six with 2:52 remaining that essentially put the game out of reach for New Orleans. Hill did manage to dress up his overall fantasy line one last time with a 70-yard touchdown pass to Deonte Harris with 2:32 remaining, his second scoring toss since Week 14 of last season. Despite the turnover-laden performance, Hill figures to be back under center for a more favorable Week 14 visit to the Jets a week from Sunday.
