News: 11 hours agoHall (hamstring) rushed 13 times for 16 yards and caught six of eight targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 13-8 loss to the Falcons.
Spin: With defenses stacking the box and the offensive line failing to open up holes, Hall has been bottled up on the ground over the past two months. Since rushing for 117 yards and a touchdown against the Broncos in Week 5, Hall has just 198 rushing yards on 83 carries (2.4 YPC) and one rushing touchdown. Hall has made up for his struggles on the ground with contributions as a pass catcher over that seven-game span, catching 36 of 44 targets for 290 yards and two touchdowns. He didn't seem bothered by the hamstring injury that limited his practice participation leading up to Sunday's loss, and Hall hasn't had fewer than 14 touches in a game since Week 4, so he should continue to see plenty of volume in Week 14 against the Texans.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: If his rookie season is any indication, Hall has fantasy stardom in his future. The only question relates to when that future begins, as he tore his ACL in Week 7. The 2022 second-round pick started in a timeshare before taking over lead back duties and reeling off five consecutive top-15 fantasy weeks prior to the injury. Hall had two games with double-digit targets and was sixth at RB in fantasy points through Week 6. He finished second at the position in both yards per carry and yards per reception. Hall has elite upside and is a fantasy RB1 when healthy, but he may open 2023 in a limited role behind newcomer Dalvin Cook. Expect a slow start and a strong finish for the budding star.
