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.

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (ankle) upgraded to a limited participant in practice on Friday. He is officially questionable to play against the Houston Texans in Week 14. On one hand, it was concerning to see Hall miss two consecutive practices and carry an injury designation into the upcoming weekend. On a positive note, though, fantasy managers should be optimistic given that he managed to practice in some capacity. His status will be confirmed 90 minutes prior to kickoff on Sunday. If active, he'll rank as a mid-to-high RB2 in fantasy football.
Dec 8, 2023 4:31 PM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall (ankle) said he expects to play in Week 14 on Sunday against the Houston Texans despite missing the first two days of practice this week on Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle injury. If the 22-year-old second-year back practices on Friday, he'll certainly have a chance to play this weekend. There is some optimism that quarterback Zach Wilson returning to the starting role on Sunday will give the Jets offense a bit more upside, but fantasy managers haven't gotten much from Hall since a 177-yard effort in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos. He's only scored twice on the ground in 12 games all year and not since Week 6. If Hall does practice on Friday and play on Sunday, he should be considered a low-end RB2 in fantasy lineups.

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (ankle) is missing practice on Thursday for the second straight day this week. ESPN New York's Rich Cimini suggests it could be a Dalvin Cook week for the Jets' backfield. Hall still has one more day to return to practice, but things aren't looking great for him right now and fantasy managers need to prepare for the possibility that he won't suit up against the Houston Texans in Week 14. The 22-year-old has become an uninspiring RB2 for fantasy managers in this inept Jets offense, although the return of quarterback Zach Wilson to the starting role at least gives a little hope that they can improve down the stretch. Cook is averaging a career-worst 3.3 yards per carry and would be a low-end RB2 in fantasy if Hall is eventually ruled out. Check back on Friday.

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (ankle) missed practice on Wednesday. It's unknown how bad Hall's ankle issue is, so fantasy managers may not understand the severity better until Thursday's practice report is released. At any rate, the 22-year-old found the end zone five times in seven games last season before going down with a knee injury. He also averaged 5.8 yards per carry. Unfortunately, he's struggled in his 12 appearances throughout the 2023-24 campaign, combining for four touchdowns while amassing just 4.3 yards per carry. Nonetheless, if Hall plays in Week 14 versus the Texans, he'll be hard to trust in any fantasy format. But if he doesn't suit up, Dalvin Cook would be in line for more work, making him an ideal streaming option. Fantasy managers should grab Cook off waivers before it's too late, assuming he's still available.

New York Jets running back Breece Hall managed just 16 yards on 13 carries and added 29 yards on six receptions in a 13-8 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. For the fourth consecutive week, Hall failed to eclipse 30 yards on the ground, but he continued to see plenty of utilization as a pass-catcher. With Dalvin Cook getting more involved and the Jets' quarterback situation in flux, Hall's fantasy outlook is difficult to predict going forward. He'll be a risky RB2 option against the Houston Texans next week.
Dec 3, 2023 8:33 PM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall (hamstring) is officially active for Week 13 versus the Atlanta Falcons. He had been listed as questionable but was trending in the right direction after logging a full practice on Friday. The second-year standout has emerged as the superior back to Dalvin Cook. However, he has suffered from the Jets' extremely poor offensive play. He has fewer than 30 rushing yards in each of his last three games, though he does 15 catches over that span. Hall's fantasy value could be salvaged by catching a large amount of check-downs from Tim Boyle on Sunday. He's a mid-to-high RB2 this week.

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (hamstring) is expected to be active for Week 13 versus the Atlanta Falcons, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hall had been listed as questionable but was trending in the right direction after logging a full practice on Friday. The second-year standout is the clear No. 1 running back in New York but has suffered from the Jets' extremely poor offensive play. He has fewer than 30 rushing yards in each of his last three games, though he does 15 catches over that span. Hall's fantasy value could be salvaged by catching a large amount of check-downs from Tim Boyle on Sunday. He's a mid-to-high RB2 this week.
Dec 3, 2023 8:22 AM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall (hamstring) was limited on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Hall may end up with a questionable tag on the final Week 13 injury report, but he appears to be on the right side of questionable. If he's active, the second-year back will continue to operate as New York's unquestioned lead back ahead of Dalvin Cook. Hall's fantasy upside has been limited this year, at first because he was being eased in coming off a torn ACL and then because of poor quarterback play from Zach Wilson. Tim Boyle replaced Wilson under center in the Week 12 loss to the Miami Dolphins, but the offense wasn't any more productive. Hall will need to remain involved in the passing game to have any hopes of returning high-end RB2 value for fantasy managers if this offense continues to go nowhere.
Nov 30, 2023 5:20 PM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall (hamstring) is on the Week 13 injury report after putting in a limited practice on Wednesday. It's notable that Hall is on the team's injury report for the first time since the opening month of the season, but it doesn't appear to be an injury serious enough to put him in danger of missing the Week 13 tilt against the visiting Atlanta Falcons. The 22-year-old remains New York's lead back, but the Jets' putrid offense has cratered his fantasy upside. Hall did very little on the ground in last Friday's loss to the Miami Dolphins but saved his fantasy day with a season-high seven catches on nine targets for 24 yards. Both he and the Jets offense will hope to be much more productive this weekend against Atlanta.
Nov 29, 2023 8:01 PM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall posted just 25 yards on seven carries and secured seven of nine targets for 24 yards in a 34-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The Jets found themselves trailing quickly and abandoned the run for much of the second half. Hall was frequently targeted by quarterback Tim Boyle but only managed 13 yards on his longest play of the day. It is currently unknown who will start at quarterback for New York in Week 13, but it is unlikely to have much of an impact on the ceiling of the Jets' offense. Although Hall will have a difficult matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, his usage in the passing game will continue to give him fantasy relevance in PPR formats.
Nov 24, 2023 8:42 PM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall is currently the fantasy RB12 on the season and will hope to find success in a divisional contest against the Miami Dolphins on Friday. Miami has been relatively stout against opposing running backs, surrendering the 10th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. The Jets' offense had been struggling for weeks with Zach Wilson under center, but Hall was frequently involved as a receiver despite running inefficiently on the ground. Hall's outlook is more uncertain this week as Tim Boyle will be starting at quarterback. Boyle has made 18 career appearances since 2018 and has thrown for 607 passing yards, three touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Although fantasy managers may want to lower their expectations, Hall should remain in starting fantasy lineups as an RB2 with upside.
Nov 23, 2023 6:39 PM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall handled 10 carries for 23 yards and secured five of his six targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in a Week 11 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Hall's stretch of inefficient rushing performances continued this week, but he once again excelled as a receiver and scored on a nine-yard pass from Zach Wilson for New York's first offensive touchdown since Week 8. With Tim Boyle replacing Wilson in the third quarter, it's unclear who will start at quarterback for the Jets moving forward, but Hall should continue to see the vast majority of work out of the backfield as Dalvin Cook and Israel Abanikanda combined for just four touches on Sunday. Hall will remain a solid fantasy option in a Week 12 bout with the Miami Dolphins.
Nov 19, 2023 8:46 PM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall has been surprisingly inefficient over the past three weeks but will hope to turn things around against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11. The Bills have been stout against the pass this season but have been vulnerable to the running game, surrendering the 11th-most fantasy points per game to opposing backs. Although it's possible that Dalvin Cook and Israel Abanikanda begin to see more work following the release of Michael Carter, Hall should continue to earn the vast majority of carries and targets in New York's backfield. The 22-year-old should remain locked into starting fantasy lineups as a top-12 option for Sunday's divisional bout.
Nov 17, 2023 10:43 PM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall managed just 28 rushing yards on 13 carries and added three receptions for 47 yards in a 16-12 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. Hall did find the end zone from three yards out in the second quarter but the touchdown was unfortunately nullified by an offensive holding penalty. Since returning from a Week 7 bye, Hall has been shockingly inefficient on the ground in three favorable matchups. His utilization as a pass-catcher continues to give him a floor in PPR fantasy leagues, but the Jets will need to find a way to sustain drives for Hall to deliver elite RB1 upside. The second-year pro will look to get back on track next week against the division-rival Buffalo Bills.
Nov 13, 2023 10:25 AM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall has handled at least 17 opportunities in four straight games and should continue to be relied upon in a Week 10 bout with the Las Vegas Raiders. Although the Raiders' pass defense has excelled this season, Las Vegas has surrendered the most rushing yards and fourth-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. As New York's only fantasy option that is not entirely dependent on Zach Wilson, Hall has proven to be a dependable asset. He is locked in as a must-start RB1 for Sunday night's contest.
Nov 10, 2023 9:37 PM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall handled 16 carries for 50 yards and added 10 yards on four receptions in the team's Week 9 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. It was a disappointing showing for Hall, who had scored in each of his three previous games. Fantasy managers were certainly frustrated watching Michael Carter come in to record six receptions on the Jets' final drive of the contest. Still, Hall dominated touches out of New York's backfield and will continue to be a must-start fantasy option. He'll have a great opportunity to bounce back next week against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Nov 6, 2023 11:40 PM EST
New York Jets running back Breece Hall has scored in three straight games and will be looking to find the end zone again on Monday night in a showdown with the Los Angeles Chargers. Hall always offers massive upside for fantasy purposes, but he's an especially great play this week with the Chargers allowing the 10th-most fantasy points per game to running backs. The 22-year-old has been a favorite target of quarterback Zach Wilson in recent weeks, giving him even more appeal in PPR formats. Despite playing in an inefficient offense, Hall has proven that he can get the job done and should be started as a top-five fantasy option.
