Houston Texans running back Dameon Pierce continued to struggle in the team's 30-6 loss against the New York Jets in Week 14. Pierce ran just four times for nine yards in the contest as Devin Singletary took over Houston's backfield once again. Singletary totaled more carries (13) and rush yards (65) in the game. The veteran also got the team's lone goal-line carry, which resulted in a touchdown. Pierce has had a rough second season in the NFL and appears to be the Texans' backup at the moment. He'll look to get things going next week on the road against the Tennessee Titans.

New York Jets running back Breece Hall handled 10 carries for 40 yards and secured eight of nine targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in a Week 14 win over the Houston Texans. With Zach Wilson back under center, Hall was frequently involved as a pass-catcher and helped lead the Jets to their first victory since Week 8. The 22-year-old also improved his efficiency on the ground as he had failed to eclipse four yards per carry in any of his seven previous outings. His matchup against the Miami Dolphins next week will be a challenging one, but Hall's utilization as a receiver should make him a viable RB2 option.

As expected, New York Jets running back Breece Hall (ankle) is officially active on Sunday against the visiting Houston Texans for Week 14 action. Fantasy managers can leave Hall in their season-long lineups, and there is some optimism that he'll have a higher ceiling and floor with quarterback Zach Wilson taking over the Jets offense again after being benched the last two games in favor of Tim Boyle, who has since been released. The 22-year-old Hall has been held hostage by the terrible Jets offense and shaky offensive line in 2023. The Jets have also teased that Dalvin Cook deserves a bigger role, but he has yet to truly threaten Hall's workload. Hopefully, Hall can maintain a substantial role as a pass-catcher to help give him RB2 value against the Texans on Sunday.

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (ankle) is expected to play on Sunday versus the Houston Texans. Head coach Robert Saleh hinted this would be the case, so Hall's likely availability isn't much of an update. That said, the 22-year-old hasn't met expectations during the 2023-24 campaign, scoring only four times (two rushing, two receiving). He's also surpassed the 100-yard rushing mark only twice and averaging 1.5 yards less per carry than last season. With this in mind, fantasy managers may want to consider other options, especially since the Jets offense is a mess. However, there's no denying Hall's talent, so he still deserves flex consideration, especially in PPR formats, due to his pass-catching prowess.

Houston Texans running back Dameon Pierce is a flex option in Week 14 against the New York Jets. Last week, Pierce secured his first touchdown since Week 3 to go with 15 carries for 41 yards. It's been a disappointing second year for the 23-year-old. But he'll have a chance to get going this weekend against a Jets defense that is allowing the ninth-most fantasy points per game to running backs this season. With heavy rains and wind expected in this matchup, the Texans could rely on the run more than usual on Sunday.
