Breece Hall Feels "Back To My Old Self"

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (lower half) missed some organized team activities and mandatory minicamp this offseason with an undisclosed "lower-half" injury, but Hall said it was out of precaution and he now feels "back to my old self." Hall was mostly rehabbing his torn left ACL last offseason and he admitted he returned a little tentative in 2023, but he still managed nearly 1,000 yards rushing and caught 76 passes for a league high 591 receiving yards in 17 games after quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) suffered a season-ending injury early in Week 1. The 23-year-old finished with 507 scrimmage yards in the final three games and is on the rise heading into 2024, especially with Rodgers now back healthy. In most fantasy formats, Hall is going to be the second RB off the board in drafts this fall after Christian McCaffrey.

Breece Hall Raising The Bar This Season

New York Jets running back Breece Hall is eager to show what he can do this season. As such, he wants to play up to the level of San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey. "It's on me," Hall said in an interview with the New York Post. "To me, he sets the standard. I've gotten better this offseason. I'm a lot leaner, I feel a lot healthier. My knee feels a lot better. I just feel like I'm back to my old self." The 23-year-old was solid as a rookie before going down seven games into the season because of a knee injury. He finished last season by running for nearly 1,000 yards and totaling nine touchdowns. With that said, Hall will get a chance to showcase his talent immediately, with the Jets meeting the 49ers in Week 1 for Monday Night Football. If the 2022 No. 36 overall pick stays healthy, he may be on tap to have his best season yet.

Jets Being Cautious With Breece Hall

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (lower body) was held out of minicamp practices as a precaution with a minor lower-body injury. "I'm just focused on continuing to get better and just to keep building my body up for the season," Hall said. "I could practice right now. I feel great, but the coaches are really cautious with me, and I appreciate them for that. It has been a good time still being a part of everything. I do all the walkthroughs and stuff we've been doing." Last year, Hall didn't practice until late August after coming off a torn ACL, but he still racked up 1,588 scrimmage yards and nine touchdowns in 2023. It may raise some eyebrows that he's dealing with an injury this offseason, but as long as he's fine in training camp, fantasy managers should have no worries taking Hall as a top-three fantasy RB in the first round of drafts.

Breece Hall Still Sitting Out On Tuesday

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (lower body) remained out of practice on Tuesday as he works his way back from a lower-body injury. The 23-year-old has been working off to the side during the team's offseason activities, but head coach Robert Saleh suggested the injury is minor. It's too early to worry about his injury considering the 2024 season is roughly three months away, but his status is worth monitoring throughout the remainder of the offseason. Hall is in play to be the first running back selected after Christian McCaffrey in 2024 fantasy drafts following an RB4 finish in half-PPR leagues last year. Despite starting the year slowly due to a lingering knee injury, Hall rushed 223 times for 994 yards and five touchdowns and caught 76 passes for 591 yards and four scores. With Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) back in action this year, Hall should have more touchdown equity in his third pro campaign. If he struggles to stay healthy, rookie fourth-rounder Braelon Allen could see plenty of action behind him.

Breece Hall Working Off To The Side Tuesday

New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh said that running back Breece Hall (lower body) is "dealing with some lower-half stuff," but the team isn't concerned about it right now. Hall is set to work off to the side again on Tuesday. The 23-year-old was also working off to the side in a rehab group at organized team activities open to the media last week. It sounds like a minor injury, but it's something to keep an eye on as we approach the start of training camp at the end of July. As long as Hall is back on the field then, fantasy managers looking to draft him as an RB1 this fall shouldn't have anything to worry about. The former second-rounder in 2022 out of Iowa State tore his ACL in his rookie year but bounced back last year to finish with 994 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 223 carries, adding 76 receptions for 591 yards and another four scores. If Hall can stay healthy in 2024, he should be a lock for his first 1,000-yard season.

Breece Hall Working In Rehab Area At OTAs

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (undisclosed) is working in the rehab area during organized team activities this week. It's unclear what type of injury Hall is dealing with or when he suffered it, but it doesn't sound very serious and it shouldn't negatively impact his fantasy value as the 2024 season approaches this fall. If the 22-year-old RB1 is unable to take part in mandatory minicamp in June, it will then become a bigger issue. With Hall out this week, running backs Israel Abanikanda, Braelon Allen and Isaiah Davis should all see more work at OTAs, in addition to recent signee Tarik Cohen as he attempts to revive his career. With quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) returning, Hall's fantasy upside this year will be even higher with the offense expected to be more explosive.

Breece Hall Dominates On The Ground In Week 18 Win

New York Jets running back Breece Hall handled a whopping 37 carries for 178 yards and a touchdown in a 17-3 win over the division-rival New England Patriots. He secured both of his targets for 12 yards and added a two-point conversion. The second-year pro was featured heavily on Sunday as both teams struggled to pass amid snowy weather conditions. Hall tallied more yards on the ground than the Jets and Patriots gained through the air combined. He also was responsible for the only touchdown of the contest, a 50-yard breakaway run late in the fourth quarter that sealed the victory. With this performance, Hall will conclude the campaign just shy of 1,000 rushing yards, but his 1,585 yards from scrimmage and nine total touchdowns are nothing to scoff at. The 22-year-old should be considered a locked-in fantasy RB1 heading into next season.

Breece Hall Remains Viable Against Patriots

New York Jets running back Breece Hall has been excellent for fantasy purposes as of late and will hope to find continued success in a Week 18 divisional clash with the New England Patriots. Although New England has been incredibly stout against the run this season, much of Hall's production has come from his heavy utilization as a pass-catcher. The second-year pro has earned the most targets of any running back this year and has received 25 looks from quarterback Trevor Siemian in his two starts. Expectations should be tempered for Hall in this matchup, but fantasy managers can continue to trust him as a solid RB2.

Breece Hall Highly Productive Against Browns

New York Jets running back Breece Hall turned 13 carries into 84 rushing yards and secured all nine of his targets for 42 receiving yards and a touchdown in a Week 17 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Hall and the Jets got off to a strong start as the 22-year-old ripped off a 25-yard run and took a short pass from Trevor Siemian 21 yards to the end zone on the team's first offensive possession. Although New York failed to sustain many drives as the contest went on, Hall continued to run efficiently and was heavily involved in the passing game. He'll look to end the campaign on a high note when the Jets travel to Foxborough to face the New England Patriots in Week 18.

Breece Hall Faces Tough Test In Week 17

New York Jets running back Breece Hall is fresh off a massive performance in Week 16 but will draw a difficult matchup on the road against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night. The Browns' defense has been stout this season, especially at home, where it is surrendering just 87.4 rushing yards per contest. With Trevor Siemian making a second consecutive start, it's difficult to project New York's offense for much success, but Hall has been so heavily involved in the passing game that it may not matter. Fantasy managers should continue to start the 22-year-old as a solid RB2 this week.

Breece Hall Has Huge Day Against Commanders

New York Jets running back Breece Hall handled 20 carries for 95 yards and two touchdowns while securing 12 of his 16 targets for 96 yards in a 30-28 win over the Washington Commanders. Fantasy managers who continued to trust Hall after a massive letdown in Week 15 were greatly rewarded with the 22-year-old's best output of the campaign. He tallied a career-high in receptions and ripped off a 36-yard score in the first quarter before finding the end zone from two yards out just before halftime. Unfortunately, Hall will have to face the Browns in Cleveland next week, but he should remain in starting fantasy lineups regardless.

Breece Hall A High-End RB2 In Week 16

New York Jets running back Breece Hall was completely shut down by the Miami Dolphins last week but has a great opportunity to bounce back against the Washington Commanders in Week 16. The Jets' offense is difficult to trust, especially this week with quarterback Trevor Siemian starting in place of Zach Wilson (concussion), but Hall should find success with the Commanders surrendering the eighth-most fantasy points to running backs this season. Additionally, Washington leads the NFL in points allowed, so Hall could easily find himself in position to score at some point on Sunday. While a productive showing cannot be guaranteed, fantasy managers should have some level of confidence that Hall can perform as an RB2 in this matchup.

Breece Hall Shut Down In Blowout Loss

New York Jets running back Breece Hall gained just 12 yards on six carries and secured one of his two targets for six yards in a 30-0 loss to the Miami Dolphins. New York's offense as a whole took a massive step backward on Sunday after a strong showing in Week 14. Of course, it didn't help that Zach Wilson (concussion) left the contest in the first half, but Wilson was unable to get much of anything going before his departure. Although Hall should have a good opportunity to bounce back next week against the Washington Commanders, fantasy managers will want to monitor the Jets' quarterback situation heading into Week 16.

Breece Hall A Solid RB2 Against Dolphins

New York Jets running back Breece Hall was limited in practice earlier this week with an ankle injury but logged a full practice on Friday and is set to take on the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The Dolphins' run defense has been quite good this season, especially in Miami, where the two division rivals will meet this weekend. The 22-year-old managed just 25 rushing yards on seven carries against Miami in Week 12, but he did record seven receptions with Tim Boyle at quarterback. New York's offense looked much improved with Zach Wilson at the helm last week, and Hall scored while commanding nine targets. Because of his consistent utilization as a pass-catcher, Hall should remain in starting fantasy lineups as an RB2.

Breece Hall Stays Limited In Practice

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (ankle) was limited in the practice session on Thursday for the second straight day this week. Hall has played through the same ankle issue for the last several weeks and has been just fine, so it's pretty safe to expect him to play in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The 22-year-old is riding high going into this weekend's game, too, having just produced 126 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown on 18 total touches in the blowout win over the Houston Texans. Hall is likely going to have a big game anytime the Jets can put up points, but their offense has mostly been bad in 2023, so outings like Week 14 have been few and far between for Hall. Expecting a repeat performance from the Jets this Sunday probably isn't smart, but Hall has been involved enough as a pass-catcher anyway to be considered an RB2 in fantasy.

Breece Hall Limited In First Practice Of The Week

New York Jets running back Breece Hall (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice session. Hall was questionable to play in Week 14's win over the Houston Texans but ultimately suited up and looked amazing, totaling 126 scrimmage yards and a touchdown on 18 total touches. Barring a setback later this week, the 22-year-old second-year back should be available to play in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins. Hall hasn't had the best year in New York's low-scoring offense, but he's maintained RB2 value for fantasy managers thanks to his involvement in the passing game. In the first matchup against the Dolphins just several weeks ago, Hall had only seven carries for 25 yards but caught seven of nine targets for 24 yards as a pass-catcher.

Breece Hall Bounces Back Against Texans

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.

Dec 10, 2023 7:51 PM EST


Breece Hall Active For Week 14

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.

Dec 10, 2023 11:48 AM EST


Breece Hall Likely Good To Go 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.

Breece Hall Practices Friday, Questionable For Week 14

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.
