Taysom Hill, TE, New Orleans Saints

It's a little uncomfortable to put Hill here, I'm not going to lie. But he led the Saints in rushing against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8, with 63 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries along with one catch for 14 yards, Over the two games before that, he totaled 11 catches for 99 yards on 13 targets-you know, like an actual tight end might do. In Week 7, he also had a rushing touchdown.

Hill is the kind of player who goes off when you have him on the bench and does nothing when you start him. He's also often a frustrating vulture of fantasy production from his teammates, with goal line rushing scores, etc.

But Hill is also a cheat code at the thinnest position in fantasy football. So he should be rostered in a lot more leagues than he is.
