Translation: expect a few quiet weeks from the sophomore running back to begin the year while Dalvin Cook handles a larger workload. It wouldn’t have taken a psychic to guess that this would be the way the Jets RB situation would shake out to begin the regular season, but this essentially confirms that New York will ease Hall back up to 100%. That being said, Dalvin Cook has a chance to provide great return on investment for at least a few weeks to begin the year, and could reasonably considered as a potential low-end RB2 and solid flex play in Week 1. Hall could have similar value, as well, but the Jets could easily play the long game with Hall – which would be the smart move – and limit his workload to prevent any potential setbacks in his recovery.
