Even after last week’s bounce-back performance in the rain against a battered Texans squad, it remains a fact that the Jets offense still isn’t operating at a high enough level to trust anyone on a weekly basis. The threat of a catastrophic bottoming out any given week remains uncomfortably high, and even Garrett Wilson hasn’t been immune to the issues that ail New York’s offense. However, there has been one player that has consistently produced through it all – even if it wasn’t always at an RB1 type of level.
Despite the Jets’ offense scoring 13 or fewer points as a team over a six-week period from Week 8-13, RB Breece Hall has posted as least 10 PPR fantasy points in each of his past nine games going all the way back to Week 5. That’s including five top-12 finishes since Week 5 while scoring just five total touchdowns over those nine games and dealing with QB Tim Boyle at QB for two of them.
The primary driver behind Breece Hall’s ultra-reliable fantasy output? HIs target share. Since the original QB change from Zach Wilson to Tim Boyle in Week 11, Breece Hall has posted the highest target share among RBs with at least four starts in that span (22.5%) while also reigning as the only RB among 25 players to earn 30+ targets since Week 11 (32). His 0.36 yards per route run also ranks second among those same 25 players with 30+ targets over the past four weeks to just Tyreek Hill. He’s finished as a top-12 running back in two of the past four weeks and will look to add to that ledger this week against the Dolphins.
