Washington Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall is getting a chance this preseason to play free safety. We break down the fantasy implications.
Washington Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall is getting a chance to learn how to play free safety. According to The Washington Post, Hall is expected to get more chances to play the position on Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts after playing some there against the Chicago Bears. Hall has played his entire career as a cornerback but coach Mike Shanahan said earlier this week that Hall would likely have a chance to make more plays at safety.
Analysis: Hall has been solid defender in his time with the Redskins and learning how to play safety might make sense as he gets a little older. The Redskins as a D/ST unit are probably not worth a draft pick in most leagues, but Hall is one of its best chances to make a big play. He has more value in IDP leagues that require a defensive back.
