WR - FA
Week 7 Outlook
The Patriots signed free-agent WR Marvin Hall to a contract on Friday.
Hall adds speed and provides the Patriots wide receiver depth. He appeared in 11 games for the Lions before being released in Week 12 of last season. Hall was later claimed by Cleveland and appeared in one contest for the Browns. The 28-year-old hauled in 18 receptions on 32 targets for 302 yards and two touchdowns across 12 games in 2020. Hall will need to carve out a role with his new team to be fantasy-relevant in 2021.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Marvin Hall caught 1-of-2 targets for 12 yards in a 23-16 loss to the Jets in Week 16.
Hall was considered a sleeper option this week after the Browns placed their top four WRs on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday. The former Detroit Lion wound up doing very little despite Cleveland attempting 53 passes. Hall will not be a fantasy option in Week 17 against the Steelers.
The Browns claimed former Lions’ WR Marvin Hall off of waivers on Monday.
Hall was released by the Lions last Saturday, but ultimately ended up in Cleveland two days later. He mainly filled in for the injured Kenny Golladay, hauling in 17 receptions for 290 yards and two touchdowns over 11 games for Detroit. Hall will provide the Browns depth at WR, but will need to carve out a role with his new team in order to be fantasy relevant in standard leagues.
According to sources, the Detriot Lions have released WR Marvin Hall.
At 27-years old, Hall is being let go to give the Lions' younger wide receivers a chance to prove themselves. Hall had a breakout game for 113 yards in Week 8 of this season so he has a good chance to latch on to another receiver-needy team in the future. He accumulated 17 receptions for 290 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games with the Lions this year.
Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the Lions are planning to waive WR Marvin Hall.
Hall had a 113-yard game back in Week 8 but Garafolo notes that the Lions want to give their younger players some looks down the stretch. He also notes that Hall should garner some interest on waivers.
