Hall secured his only target for 39 yards during Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Cowboys.
It says something when a 39-yard gain decreases your average yards per catch, but that was the reality of Hall's situation while making his sixth catch of the season off a rare dime from backup quarterback Jeff Driskel. However, it seems unlikely that Driskel will consistently be able to find Hall downfield the same way Matthew Stafford (back) was, so there remains little reason to turn to the receiver for fantasy purposes.
Hall was not targeted during Sunday's 20-13 loss to Chicago.
Forced to swap out gunslinger Matthew Stafford (back) for backup Jeff Driskel, the Lions weren't able to give Hall any opportunities to make a play downfield this week. However, the speedy deep threat had seen at least one pass come his way in five previous games, and he yet again logged double-digit snaps on offense. There should be better days ahead for Hall, especially if Stafford is able to return sooner than later.
Hall failed to catch his only target but did rush once for seven yards as well as gain 12 yards on his lone kickoff return during Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Raiders.
For the first time in weeks, Detroit didn't look for Hall on a deep pass. Instead, Hall's weekly target came on a short attempt over the middle, and he also was used as a runner and a return man. While there's still not enough to see here to warrant fantasy consideration for Hall, it's becoming clear that the Lions want to keep him involved on a weekly basis in some capacity, and Hall only needs one target to make a big play.
Hall brought in his only target for a 49-yard touchdown during Sunday's 31-26 victory over the Giants.
After making huge catches each of the past three games, it seemed like only a matter of time until Hall was able to get into the end zone. This time, he burned Giants safety Michael Thomas to bring in a bomb from Matthew Stafford in the first quarter. It's probably naive to think Hall can sustain his current average of 40.2 yards per catch, but there's no denying the lid-lifting ability he brings to Detroit, and it's possible he could eventually have a huge fantasy day if he's ever targeted on more than a single deep pass in a game. The main thing holding him back from that is Hall's lack of playing time relative to Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola, considering Hall matched his season high Sunday with only 14 offensive snaps.
Hall brought in one of two targets for 47 yards during Sunday's 42-30 loss to Minnesota.
Hall now has hauled in a pass of at least 34 yards in three consecutive games and clearly is emerging as a weapon for quarterback Matthew Stafford, who hasn't had a small and speedy deep threat at his disposal in a long time. While the 26-year-old receiver is only seeing about 16 snaps per game and is unlikely to handle enough volume to become a reliable fantasy option, Hall adds another dimension to the Lions' passing offense and is seemingly a weekly threat for a big gain.
Hall secured his only target for a 58-yard gain during Monday's 23-22 loss to Green Bay.
Hall only saw 10 offensive snaps, but he yet again found a way to make a huge play. This time, it was on a 58-yard bomb from Matthew Stafford early on in the first quarter. He didn't see another pass come his way after that, though, which goes to show how reliant Hall is on catching a deep pass in order to provide fantasy value.
Hall caught two of three targets for 47 yards during Sunday's 34-30 loss to Kansas City.
Although receiver-turned-running-back J.D. McKissic started the game as a receiver, Hall was the third and only wideout in Danny Amendola's (chest) absence to enter the game after Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. The 26-year-old ultimately logged 29 snaps on offense and made a big play by bringing in a perfectly placed ball from Matthew Stafford for a 34-yard gain in the fourth quarter. While it's nice for Detroit to know they have a serviceable reserve in Hall, don't expect him to see nearly as much playing time when Amendola returns to form.
Hall is slated to serve as the Lions' third wide receiver Sunday against the Chiefs with Danny Amendola (chest) absent, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
That's not to say Hall will handle Amendola's role out of the slot, as he's more of a field stretcher. In 24 appearances between 2017 and 2018 with the Falcons, four of Hall's 12 catches went for 20-plus yards en route to 17.4 YPC. In any case, opportunity knocks for the 26-year-old.
Hall was promoted to the active roster Saturday.
Hall takes the place of fellow receiver Chris Lacy, who was released in a corresponding move Saturday. The 26-year-old saw action in 24 games for the Falcons over 2017 and 2018, logging 12 catches for 209 yards and two scores.
The Bears waived Hall on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Hall was seemingly given a shot to step up during camp, but he was unable to translate the opportunity into results. The 26-year-old started against Carolina in the Bears' first preseason game, yet was only thrown to twice and was unable to reel in either target. Hall also fell short on special teams in Chicago's second preseason contest, losing 15 yards on two punt returns and gaining 16 yards on his only kick return.
Hall caught one of four targets for four yards and carried one time for an additional two yards during Friday's 32-13 preseason loss against the Giants.
Hall finished fourth on the team in targets, but he only managed to bring in one of his looks for a short gain. He also failed to impress on special teams, losing 15 yards on two punt returns and gaining 16 yards on his only kick return. While he's been given a shot to step up during camp, he's failed to translate those results to the field as he's hauled in just one of six looks through two exhibition contests. Many of the team's skill position players should be more involved next Saturday against the Colts, which could leave mere scraps for Hall as he looks to prove himself.
Hall failed catch either of the two passes thrown his way in Chicago's 23-13 preseason loss to the Panthers on Thursday.
With most of the regular skill-position players sitting this one out, Hall found himself in the starting lineup, but the empty box score didn't reflect that. He also started as both the kickoff and punt returner, positions he could potentially fill as a backup wideout during the season. However, he'll be in a battle to make the team on a crowded depth chart, and should he make the final 53, it's unlikely that he'll see enough playing time to be a fantasy factor.
Hall signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Friday.
Hall offers the Bears wideout depth behind Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller (shoulder) and Cordarrelle Patterson, and he projects to make most of his impact on special teams if he earns a spot on the 53-man roster. The 25-year-old had 10 receptions for 149 yards and one touchdown in 16 games with the Falcons last season.
The Falcons didn't tender Hall a contract for 2019, making him an unrestricted free agent, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Hall played 184 snaps over 16 games in 2018, recording 10 receptions for 149 yards and a touchdown. He saw more action on special teams, making his biggest impact as a return man for the Falcons. The 25-year-old will likely have to settle for a short-term deal with limited guaranteed money as he hits the open market.
Hall recorded 149 yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions in 16 games in 2018.
Hall saw a much larger role in 2018 than he did as a rookie in 2017, playing 387 snaps on the year. His primary role was on special teams, as he operated as the team's kick returner for much of the year and was just a depth receiver on offense. He'll figure to have a similar role if he's on the team again next season, though he could move up the depth chart slightly.
Hall caught one of three targets, picking up 10 receiving yards during Sunday's 40-14 win against the Cardinals.
The second-year wideout snapped a four-game catchless streak, working in a 10-yard reception against Pro Bowler Budda Baker during the latter stages of the third quarter, as the Falcons put up 220 yards through the air on Arizona's defense No. 5 pass defense. As a returner, Hall chalked up 10 yards in bringing back an Andy Lee punt, but the gain was erased by a holding penalty on rookie Russell Gage. He's only collected 17 targets on the season, but most of his involvement has come by way of special teams, where he's returned 21 kickoffs for 25.0 yards per attempt. In Week 16, he'll be lining up against a Panthers kick coverage unit that's surrendered 23.1 yards per return in 2018 (ranks 17th).
Hall was unable to haul in his lone target during Sunday's 34-20 loss to Green Bay.
The townward trend continues in Atlanta as the team has failed to top 20 points in five consecutive games, all losses. Hall is feeling the effects. After a three-catch Week 7, Hall has snagged just one of five targets for 12 yards. Sunday brings an Arizona defense ranked in the top five for receiving yards allowed per game with only 231.
Hall caught his only target, a 12-yard gain, during Sunday's 28-16 loss to Cleveland.
Just three games ago, Hall appeared to turn a corner with a 63-yard performance and just his second career touchdown. Unfortunately, he has just one catch since. Atlanta's passing offense is among the best in the game, but Hall doesn't factor much into it. Seeing as Sunday brings a visit from a top-10 Dallas pass defense, Hall's stock remains low.
Hall was targeted once but failed to come away with a catch during Sunday's 38-14 win over Washington.
Coming off of a nice, borderline-breakout performance against the Giants, Hall was held catchless for the second time in three games. The Falcons offense has been hot, with five games with at least 30 points in the last seven contests. Atlanta might have a desire to play any skill player associated with it. Hall hasn't done enough to warrant that attention, however, especially with a Sunday trip to Cleveland and the league's No. 2 defense in terms of opponent passer rating.
Hall caught all three of his targets, amassing 63 receiving yards and a touchdown during Monday's 23-20 win against the Giants.
The second-year man slipped past Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins on a seam route, as Matty Ice floated a 47-yard dime into Hall's awaiting hands to provide Atlanta with the initial points of the night. A former Falcons practice squad standout, Hall collected his first touchdown since his professional debut, which came on an eerily similar 40-yard score during Week 5 of the 2017 season against Miami. Following a bye week, Hall will look to stay involved Nov. 4 when the Falcons take on Washington and a Redskins secondary that has allowed the 11th-fewest number of receiving yards to opposing wideouts (1,023).
