Believe it or not, but I don’t think Taysom Hill was a huge game-changer for the bulk of the 2019 season. Towards the last few games the versatile Swiss-Army knife showed his value, one reason he’ll be given over $20 million in the next two seasons.
I expect Hill to have a much involved 2020 campaign. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound quarterback played in under 25% of the team’s offensive snaps while also being involved in 62% of the special teams’ snaps.
His numbers are surprisingly low. While he may have been the best player on the field against the Vikings in the team’s Wild Card loss, he didn’t put up the best numbers throughout the season, one that was plagued by injuries in the team’s backfield.
Hill totaled 27 rushes for 156 yards and ten first downs. He also notched 19 receptions on 22 targets for 234 yards and 14 first downs. Those first-down totals are what helped show his impact on the organization.
In 2020, expect him to be more heavily involved in the offense, potentially doubling those numbers.
