Breece Hall ahead of Michael Carter in Jets' backfield

New York Jets running back Breece Hall is the lead back ahead of Michael Carter, per Connor Hughes of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Hughes says Hall is "the Batman to Carter's Robin" and that the second-round rookie is viewed as a "home run threat" while Carter is considered to be more of a complementary piece. Hall racked up 3,044 rushing yards and 41 rushing touchdowns over his final two years in college.

Hall is currently the RB23 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models project him for 223.5 carries, 34.3 receptions (47.8 targets), 991.8 rushing yards, 257.1 receiving yards, and 7.29 touchdowns. Carter is the RB40 and our models project him for 137.5 carries with 21.6 receptions (30.9 targets) this season.
