Thinking we could draft a QB to use as trade bait for a higher pick. Just think if we dumped Hurley and kept hill, where we would be championship and player wise? McCarthy set GB back years. Dallas soon to follow. Hill will be the QB next year to draft after Brees retires you watch.

Dude is a good athlete but cmon, do the Saints REALLY believe Taysom Hill gives them a better chance to win than Winston does? Atl will load the box and dare him to throw it, almost changes their entire offensive game plan imo.
I'd imagine they don't trust JW and figure Taysom can hand it off and throw short routes. MT probably most adversely affected and I'd imagine this decision gives Kamara a bump..
Can't recall seeing Hill throw the ball at all... Heck, when running the option I've never seen him hand it off. Ball hog
Once the season has begun, ESPN cannot change the primary position. However, a player can gain additional eligibility for other positions (done by ESPN) during the season if circumstances warrant it.

Anyone looking at Hill as a QB?

However....going into the season, again, his highest percentage of snaps LAST year was at TE. Which is how they go about putting positional eligibility in. I'm not in on daily fantasy, but Fanduel also has him at TE from what I've been told.
I have a league where I picked him up on waivers this week. I have another where I didn't, so I do have some skin in this game....
....however, I don't really see how they can strip him of eligibility that was given to him before the year. It's not like TE was an ADDED designation (though I think QB was).

I don't see it as a crazy thing that he was listed there-because that's where he's been playing (same as basketball, baseball leagues where guys have multi-position eligibility).
I'm not sure how ESPN progresses with this after this week, because it may change....
But he's still playing those other spots after this week as well.
If he gets even 1/2 of normal snaps at QB-he's going to put up big numbers in TE slot
