The Jets are hiring Nathaniel Hackett as their new OC, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Hackett was a disaster as Denver's HC this past season but had a successful stint as Green Bay's OC the previous 3 years. The Packers finished middle of the pack in total yards and points in Hackett's 1st season but climbed into the top 10 in both categories in 2020 and 2021. Those teams, of course, were quarterbacked by Aaron Rodgers, who's a big fan of Hackett. This move was presumably made by the Jets at least in part to help their chances of luring Rodgers to New York.

According to multiple reports, the Jets and OC Mike LaFleur are mutually parting ways. LaFleur jumped from the 49ers staff to the Jets when Robert Saleh took over as HC 2 seasons ago. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that other teams have inquired about LaFleur, so it sounds like this is more "parting" than firing. We'll see where LaFleur lands next and what he has to work with. It's tough to judge much from his 1st try at OC, with poor QB play limiting everything. We'll also see who the Jets pull in next ... and who starts at QB in 2023.

The MRI on Jets RB Breece Hall's knee revealed a torn ACL and a meniscus injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hall will miss the rest of the 2022 season -- and the meniscus injury could mean a longer rehab. Hall has about 10-and-a-half months before the start of the 2023 campaign. We'll keep an eye on his progress. The good news is that Hall has age on his side, turning just 22 next May. We still like him as a top-5 dynasty RB. His absence leaves Michael Carter as New York's clear lead back. We'll see if the 5-2 Jets make an addition at the position. Carter doesn't project as a workhorse.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said after Sunday's win over the Broncos that RB Breece Hall is believed to have a torn ACL. We should get confirmation tomorrow, but it sounds like Hall's impressive rookie season is over. His absence will leave Michael Carter as New York's lead back -- and a likely RB2 in fantasy football.

Jets RB Breece Hall injured his knee in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Broncos. He made it off the field under his own power but was carted to the locker room. Hall has been ruled out. We'll update his status when we know more.

Jets RB Breece Hall ran for 116 yards and a TD on 20 carries in Sunday's win over the Packers. He added 2 catches for 5 yards on 2 targets. That tied him for the team lead in receptions in a game that found the Jets attempting only 18 passes. RB Michael Carter rushed 6 times for 41 yards and caught 1 pass for 6 yards.

Jets RB Breece Hall rushed 18 times for 97 yards and a TD in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. Hall added another 100 yards receiving despite seeing just 2 targets. His 2 catches went for 79 and 21 yards. Hall worked clearly ahead of RB Michael Carter once again, though he watched Carter vulture a pair of rushing scores among 10 carries. QB Zach Wilson also ran for a TD from 5 yards out, and WR Braxton Berrios found the end zone from 15 yards out on his only carry. Hall is looking like a weekly fantasy football starter.

Jets HC Robert Saleh announced Wednesday that QB Zach Wilson has been medically cleared from the meniscus tear and bone bruise he suffered in his knee in mid-August. Barring a setback this week, Wilson will start Sunday's game vs. the Steelers. He shouldn't be in fantasy lineups, but we'll see what he means for New York's skill-position guys. QB Joe Flacco currently leads the NFL with 155 pass attempts but completed just 59% of them and averaged an ugly 5.8 yards per attempt. Wilson is certainly capable of beating those numbers.

Jets RB Breece Hall saw a playing-time leap in Sunday's loss to the Bengals. He went from playing less than half as many snaps as backfield mate Michael Carter in Week 2 to playing 6 more snaps than Carter against Cincinnati. The biggest change came in the passing game. According to Pro Football Focus, Hall trailed Carter 24-9 in Week 2 routes. The rookie led 31-21 in that category in Week 3. By halftime, hall had twice as many targets (8) as anyone else on the team. He finished with a team-high 11 looks, catching 6 for 53 yards. Hall trailed Carter 11-8 in carries but matched Carter's 39 rushing yards. Through 3 games, Hall now leads Carter by 5 targets. He has also averaged 0.9 more per rushing attempt and 2.1 more yards per reception. We'll see whether this marks an enduring change or was just a 1-week flip. We'll also see what effect QB Zach Wilson has upon his impending return.

Forced to play from behind in the 4th quarter, the Jets fed RB Breece Hall only 8 touches in Week 2. The rookie rushed 7 times for 50 yards, including a 23-yarder that showed off his plus vision, balance and burst. He was stuffed for a loss on the next play — a goal line chance — but later scored on a swing pass where the Browns defense failed to guard him. On the day, RB Michael Carter matched Hall in carries. Carter also topped the rookie 5-1 in targets, with Ty Johnson even mixing in for 3 targets. So until his usage improves, Hall will remain an RB3 for the foreseeable future. Next up is a home date with the Bengals.

Jets RB Michael Carter drew 10 carries to rookie Breece Hall's 6 in Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Ravens. Carter outperformed Hall on the ground, averaging 6.0 yards per rush to Hall's 3.8. Hall edged Carter 10-9 in targets, but Carter led the team with 7 receptions for 40 yards. Hall caught 6 for 38. We'll be watching this split all season, but Carter certainly gave no reason in Week 1 for the team to decrease his role.

Jets HC Robert Saleh told reporters Tuesday that RT Mekhi Becton is likely done for the season, according to ESPN. Becton suffered what is believed to be an injury to his right patella. Although the team has yet to reveal specifics, it sounds like Becton tore the patellar tendon in that knee, which also required season-ending surgery last year. Losing Becton isn't a killer, but it hurts an offense that already had O-line questions.

Jets RBs Breece Hall and Michael Carter split the workload in Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. If that's how things continue to play out heading into the regular season, Carter could be a nice fantasy value. Hall, on the other hand, would see his ceiling limited. We remain more bullish on the 2nd-round rookie than the 4th-rounder from last year but will certainly track the situation through preseason.

The Athletic’s Conor Hughes writes that the Jets “always viewed” RB Michael Carter as “an ideal compliment.” Carter, only ~200 pounds, saw double-digit carries in 8 of 14 rookie-year games and performed well in terms of advanced metrics. The arrival of Round 2 RB Breece Hall crushes Carter’s fantasy upside, but he’s at least the clear #2. He’s also a very fair value in FFPC drafts, coming off the board as the RB42.

Jets HC Robert Salah called rookie RB Breece Hall a “home run hitter.” Salah went on to talk about the importance of explosive plays. New York traded up to land Hall, who posted 22 runs of 15+ yards last season (253-carry sample). He set a personal-best in YPC (5.8). Current projections have the Iowa State product clearing 250 touches.

The Jets selected RB Breece Hall with the 36th pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Hall spent nearly all of his 3 seasons starting at Iowa State. He opened his sophomore year with 8 straight 100-yard games and finished it as the FBS leader in rushing yards. He earned All-America honors each of the past 2 seasons. Hall followed a stellar career – including 82 receptions at 9.0 yards per catch – by running a 4.39-second 40-yard dash at 217 pounds (a 97th-percentile speed score). Hall joins a Jets backfield alongside 2021 4th-rounder Michael Carter. Hall is the favorite to lead the way in touches, but this isn’t a great landing spot for his fantasy value.
