Breece Hall Dominates On The Ground In Week 18 Win

Sunday, January 7, 8:15 PM

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.

James Cook The Unquestioned Lead Back

Thursday, May 9, 2:20 PM

Buffalo Bills running back James Cook bounced back from being benched last year and enters his third season in the NFL in 2024 as the unquestioned lead back with a giant gap between him and either Ty Johnson or rookie Ray Davis. Cook should continue to push toward some of the heaviest involvement the Bills have seen in recent years out of their top back. Johnson's game is similar to Cook's, so he'll likely have a game-day role when Cook needs a breather. The Bills are hoping Davis can add power and short-yardage ability, something the team has been wanting to add for years to the backfield. The 24-year-old Cook had a 1,000-yard rushing season in 2023 but added just two rushing TDs. What Cook lacks in scoring opportunities, he could make up for with his pass-catching abilities and sheer volume in 2024.
