Number Two: Taysom Hill
Taysom Hill being on this list may come as a surprise to many, but with the lack of playmakers the Saints will have suiting up on Friday, Hill could thrive in what could and should be an increased utility role.
Everyone who even remotely follows the Saints understands just how valuable Taysom Hill is to the Saints organization, but you could argue that his utility role where he plays everywhere could be more valuable than him as a quarterback.
Hill may get to see extended snaps on Friday with several starting wide receivers are expected to miss the game and quite frankly Hill may be better than some of the players they will be calling up off the practice squad to replace them.
Hill could have a huge game against a weak Vikings defense with his ability to run the ball, catch the ball, and play special teams. Don’t be surprised if Hill finds the end zone or makes a pivotal play at some point on Christmas Day.
