"When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us."

--Alexander Graham Bell




At the opening bell of the 2015 NFL free agency period this past Tuesday, the New Orleans Saints shocked the football community by sending away their star wide receiver tight end Jimmy Graham and his 950 yards and 12 touchdowns per-season averages to the Seattle Seahawks. Moving such a major component of the Saints offense cross-country has left a large majority of analysts viewing this move in the context of the immense losses it presents to the Saints, and the incredible fortunes gained by the Seahawks.

But what many have failed to recognize is the rare opportunity this trade has created for someone on the Saints roster to now claim those 77 receptions and 119 targets per season being vacated by the All-Pro tight end.

And it's this exact oversight that will allow many forward-looking fantasy football owners to get a steal at the tight end position in Saints third-year tight end Josh Hill this upcoming season.

Effective by what standard? That he can do HIS job in a "spread the ball around" offense?

He's already proven valuable in the run and passing game. Having #9 only elevates his status.

So yes, he can fill the void.

Josh Hill will be fine and the homers that pick up Hill in their fantasy leagues will be richly rewarded...

Every article keeps saying can Josh Hill be Jimmy Grahams replacement or words to that effect.

We don't need him to be Jimmy, our offense became to reliant on the supposed "monster mismatches" that Graham presented.

If we give Drew a good running game and the opportunity to spread the ball about, then Josh Hill will be a key contributor for us.

shouldn't be tough, especially since Hill actually is a tight end
