Taysom Hill is expected to start at quarterback for the New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon. That’s not the only place he’ll be starting, though. Some fantasy football owners will have Hill starting at the tight end position.
That’s right – on ESPN this week, fantasy football owners are able to have Hill starting at either quarterback or tight end.
It remains to be seen if ESPN will allow this moving forward, but for one day, Hill is a clear must-start at the tight end position (if you have him, of course).
“So we don’t know for sure if this will remain the plan throughout Brees’ absence. But for now, Hill is a must-start at TE and maybe even a consideration at QB in deeper leagues since he will surely pile up a ton of rushing yardage,” ESPN wrote this week.
It’s odd that ESPN couldn’t fix this before Sunday’s game. In Yahoo! Sports’ fantasy leagues, Hill is only eligible to play at quarterback.
Fantasy football owners – those who don’t have Taysom Hill, anyway – aren’t happy with ESPN.
Don’t be mad at ESPN for having Taysom Hill listed as a TE, be mad at yourself for using ESPN to play fantasy football.

If Taysom Hill actually puts up something resembling QB statlines for the next few weeks somebody is going to win your ESPN fantasy league by playing him at tight end. If that person is you, because you saw this tweet, you owe me a future beer.

Yahoo! has Taysom Hill as QB only. No TE nonsense. Yahoo! continues to rule the fantasy business.

There are always a couple of position issues each fantasy football season, but Taysom Hill being eligible at tight end might be the biggest we’ve seen.
New Orleans is scheduled to face Atlanta at 1 p.m. E.T. Good luck to everyone facing Hill today.
