Jets expected to 'play it safe' with Breece Hall (knee) in Week 1

The New York Jets are planning to "play it safe" with running back Breece Hall (knee) in their Monday night Week 1 game against the Buffalo Bills, Ian Rapoport reports.

What It Means:

The Jets seemed strangely optimistic about Hall's ACL recovery timeline all summer before signing Dalvin Cook in free agency in the middle of training camp, so it looks like we might have to wait at least a few weeks before we can expect Hall to pick up where he left off in the 2022 fantasy season -- as a breakout RB1 contender. Rapoport reported that the Jets are planning to lean heavily on Cook in Week 1 while they play it safe with their talented young second-year back.

Hall is currently the RB27 in numberFire's 2023 season-long projections, coming in just behind Cook's RB25 ranking. If this does end up as a split backfield, Hall's chances for a true breakout may need to wait until 2024.
