Game status update: Hall is officially active for Sunday’s game against Atlanta.
Game day update: Breece Hall and Dalvin Cook are both expected to be active for Week 13 vs. the Falcons, per Ian Rapoport.
It doesn’t look like a hamstring injury will keep Breece Hall off the field this weekend. The New York Jets running back was limited at practice on Wednesday and Thursday this week, but he was upgraded to a full participant on Friday. The team listed him as questionable on the official injury report.
The Jets are at home against the Atlanta Falcons this week. That game kicks off at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
Breece Hall injury
Fantasy football analysis
The Jets offense is dragging down Hall’s numbers this season. Last week, he had 25 yards on seven carries, and he hasn’t had more than 50 rushing yards in a game since Week 5. What helps his fantasy value is his work in the passing game, at least in PPR leagues. He caught seven passes for another 24 yards last week. The game before that, he had five catches for 50 yards and a touchdown.
But with Tim Boyle quarterbacking the offense, there’s not much ceiling for Hall. He still should enough touches to give him some RB2 value based on volume, if nothing else.
If Hall can’t play, the Jets might actually get some use out of Dalvin Cook. However, Cook is also questionable with a shoulder injury, though the team said they expect him to play.
NFL DFS analysis
He’s sitting at $6,400 in DraftKings leagues this week, which is a little high for an RB2 with low upside. Still, he’s not a bad option just because of the workload he’s likely to have with a semi-anonymous quarterback running the offense. At least you don’t have to worry about his health, probably.
The Jets are two-point underdogs at home to the Falcons, which should tell you a lot about where a Tim Boyle-led team is at right now. They’d be worse off without Hall in the lineup, but I’m not sure it would have much impact on how to handle the line here.
