DeAngelo Hall: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
When it comes to players' IDP value outpacing their value in the real game, Hall might set a new standard this year. Washed up at corner, he was moved to safety under the assumption that you can always turn a bad corner into a good cover safety. We'll see on that one, but even if Hall gets beat in coverage similarly to how he did at corner, he should be in a position to pile up stats. Durability is the main problem – a torn Achilles' tendon ended his 2014 season, and he missed time in 2015 with toe and calf issues.
Tore his Achilles' heel twice last season. At age 32 he has an up hill battle to regain his form. He is expected to be ready at the start of training camp. His role will depend on healthy and whether he is able to regain his previous form. Best case he reclaims a starting spot and records a few interceptions this season. However, it's more likely his ability regresses and he plays in the slot or a backup role. Another option is he sees some action at safety.
Hall is the odd cornerback who can keep up with the safeties in IDP rankings, posting the tackle and interception numbers necessary to push for DB2 status or better in most years. He has at least four interceptions in four of his last five seasons, while averaging 90 tackles per season over that span. The fact that Hall isn't a great cover corner is actually a good thing for his IDP potential – quarterbacks wouldn't throw his way nearly as much if he didn't let receivers get open – and the Redskins don't have enough corner depth to force him to the bench when he gives up big plays. He should have another solid IDP season in 2014, as the NFC East should be among the more pass-happy divisions in the league.
Hall is a likely starter for the Redskins and is an IDP option in most leagues due to the high target count he sees.
In leagues that reward points for passes defended, Hall probably deserves a bump. He's just bad enough in coverage to leave throwing lanes open for opposing quarterbacks, but he's just good enough to pick off a few of those and knock down double-digit quantities of the passes he doesn't intercept. The result the last two years is 185 tackles (130 solo), nine interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) and 32 passes defended (16 in both years). With strong offenses in New York, Philadelphia and Dallas, the Washington defense should see a solid snap count in 2012, giving Hall a good shot at posting more fantasy worthy numbers and maintaining his value.
Hall gets beat like a drum, and probably isn’t anywhere near as good in coverage as most corners with commensurate stats, but he does have standout ability as a playmaker, which should give him a noticeable impact as an IDP again in 2011. The former Virginia Tech burner concluded last year with a career-high 95 tackles (65 solo) with six interceptions, which tied his career high set in 2005. Of course, four of those interceptions came in one game, so Hall’s production was generally hit-or-miss.
Hall led the team with four interceptions in 2009. He enters 2010 excited about the Redskins new defense and the possibility of forcing more turnovers in the aggressive scheme. He is the team's best playmaker in the secondary.
Hall was released by Oakland half way through 2008 after being a detriment to the team. He was picked up by the Redskins and finished the season with five interceptions. By the end of 2008 he was starting in the 'Skins defense and was rewarded with a six-year $55 million contract. He is a high risk, high reward DB with ball hawking skills. He has recorded at least four interceptions every year since 2005. Expect the same in 2009.
The outspoken Hall had a tumultuous 2007 season in Atlanta, but he still recorded a career high 70 tackles and missed his career high in interceptions (six) by just one. Hall seems like he has been around forever but he won't even turn 25 until November. He is a consistent playmaker (58-to-70 tackles and four-to-six interceptions in each of the last three seasons) and still has upside. Traded to Oakland this offseason, Hall will form one of the league's best cornerback duos opposite Nnamdi Asomugha, preventing opposing quarterbacks from avoiding his side of the field.
Being one of the best allows you a little more freedom to express yourself. DeAngelo Hall has never been afraid to express himself, especially to opposing receivers around the league, but he can back it up too. Hall is one of the best and most exciting corners in the league. He was named to his second consecutive Pro Bowl last season, after a year in which he recorded 56 tackles, four interceptions, and a career-high 16 passes defended despite teams throwing away from him. True to his exciting persona, he also scored his third career defensive touchdown. Hall is in the prime of the career, so he should only improve this season. His numbers will depend on how much opposing teams throw his direction, but he should record at least five interceptions and definitely has a chance pick up another touchdown. If Hall continues his progression and remains one of the best corners in the league, the Falcons can probably live with his self-expression.
Hall is quickly becoming one of the league's best young cornerbacks. After recording a career-high six interceptions in 2005, Hall was selected to the NFC Pro Bowl team. In 2006, Hall should be one of the league's best defensive players, particuarly in IDP leagues.
Hall is entering his second season as a pro and has quickly developed into the team's top cornerbacks. He has sharp instincts and should prove to have some fantasy value in IDP leagues.
Considered by most as the top cornerback available in the 2004 draft. A terrific athlete with tremendous speed (4.34 40), Hall is already on a first-name basis with Michael Vick, having played his college ball at Virginia Tech.
