Running back Breece Hall's pass-catching ability could prove valuable against the Buffalo Bills in Week 11.
The New York Jets' RB1 has been a factor in the passing game of late, having made at least three receptions in each of his six most-recent outings.
Hall is responsible for the team's lone touchdown reception, a 50-yard screen play against the New York Giants, over its last five games. With quarterback Zach Wilson seemingly facing constant pressure, Hall has been an effective safety valve in addition to being featured on called screen plays.
Hall is averaging 46.8 yards receiving per outing over the most-recent four-game sample.
Sports Illustrated fantasy sports and betting analyst Jennifer Piacenti has tabbed Hall as a good value pick on the early player prop wagering market for Week 11 in the National Football League. The SI expert has listed Hall's receiving yards total as one of seven suggested bets, including a Dak Prescott rushing prop and a Baker Mayfield passing TDs wager. Piacenti is projecting all seven totals to go OVER.
From NFL Week 11 Player Props:
Breece Hall over 26.5 receiving yards (-115)
Hall has exceeded this prop in three of the last four and it would have been all four if his long fourth-quarter catch hadn’t been called back in Week 9. The Bills have allowed an average of 60 receiving yards per game to opposing running backs across the past four contests.
The Jets and the Bills will square off on November 19 at 4:25 pm ET in Orchard Park. It'll be the second meeting between AFC East division rivals this season. In the Week 1 overtime win over Buffalo, Hall made one 20-yard receiving play on two targets.
Hall has 246 receiving yards on 26 catches through nine games this year. He has been targeted 34 times.
