Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb is likely to remain the starter in 2019 even after RB Kareem Hunt is eligible to return from his eight-game suspension, in the opinion of beat writer Scott Petrak. Chubb earned the team's trust with a strong rookie year, but Hunt could be the starter in 2020.
Fantasy Spin: Chubb will be an RB2 for the bulk of the fantasy season, and Hunt will need time to acclimate himself in the offense and kick rust off. It could be Week 10 before Hunt makes a considerable dent in Chubb's fantasy stock. Hunt is worth stashing as an RB5, but Chubb seems to be safe atop the pecking order.
Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey said the team has a plan for running back Kareem Hunt up until his suspension begins for the 2019 season. Hunt was suspended eight games by the NFL for two violations of the personal-conduct policy. The running back won't appeal the suspension and Dorsey said he is "most proud" of the effort Hunt is taking to grow into the best version of himself. Hunt will obviously have his upside capped with Cleveland in 2019 because of his suspension for half the season and the fact that he'll be sharing the backfield with Nick Chubb when he makes his season debut.
Updating an immediate report, Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt will not appeal his eight-game suspension.
The NFL has suspended Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt for eight games for violating its personal conduct policy. Hunt violated the personal conduct policy while he was a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, which led to his release in November. The Browns took a chance on the running back, signing him to a one-year contract in February. While Hunt is suspended, running backs Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson will be asked to lead the backfield, although there have been persistent rumors that the team would like to trade Johnson. When he does return from suspension, Hunt's role in the team's backfield is unclear.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt was suspended eight games Friday, March 15, for violating the personal conduct policy, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt can still appeal the ruling, but he's gone for 75 percent of the fantasy season in a lot of leagues. You're really going to have to be lucky avoiding the injury bug if you're going to carry him as an RB5 all season. There is obvious risk of rust and obvious reward for the latter part of the season and playoffs. Nick Chubb will be an RB2 or RB3 in Hunt's stead.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt is likely facing a multiple-game disciplinary suspension, but Browns general manager John Dorsey said Thursday, March 14, he doesn't have any updated information on the specifics of the suspension. Dorsey did add that Hunt has been at the team's facilities and has been doing a 'great job.'
Fantasy Spin: Until we get clarity on the length of Hunt's ban, he'll be a late-round fantasy draft option who could pay off late next season.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt is expected to be suspended for his off-field issues, but NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said there is no timetable for a decision.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt is expected to receive a lengthy suspension, but the team will have Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson to play at the position while Hunt is out. He is will be a risky option in fantasy leagues next season but could help during the second half of the season.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt's addition was helped by general manager John Dorsey's 2016 experience in Kansas City in deciding whether to draft WR Tyreek Hill in 2016. When you make a decision of that magnitude, you have to have depth of knowledge,' Dorsey said Thursday, Feb. 28, at the NFL Scouting Combine. 'You have to be able to communicate what everybody sees, and then from a managing up position, you have to be able to express that with clarity to your bosses and get them to understand that this is a good person, so just trust us on this.'
Fantasy Spin: Signing Hunt was one thing, but having him actually able to play will be another as he remains on the Commissioner's Exempt List. That likely will be the case for a good chunk of the 2019 season.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt could be suspended up to 10 or 12 games as a result of the domestiv violence incident he was involved in last year, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Fantasy Spin: The Browns, of course, knew this before signing him, but they took a chance on Hunt with a one-year deal anyway. As for Hunt's fantasy value, it is greatly hindered by the presence of Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson and his impending suspension. As of now he is merely worth a waiver wire add in dynasty leagues if available.
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt signed a one-year contract that is for more than the league minimum and could be worth more than $1 million with the Cleveland Browns on Monday, Feb. 11.
Fantasy Spin: This move isn't a surprise given the fact current Cleveland general manager John Dorsey was one of the people responsible for drafting Ohio native Hunt when he was still employed with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017, but just about everything else about this move is shocking. The league still has yet to announce how long Hunt will be suspended for his off-field issues, plus rookie Nick Chubb quickly emerged as one of the league's best backs near the end of the season. Hunt figures to serve a suspension for the better part of the 2019 season, but Hunt's arrival figures to damage Chubb's dynasty stock.
The Cleveland Browns signed free-agent running back Kareem Hunt on Monday. The Chiefs released Hunt last season after a video emerged of him kicking a woman in a hotel. The 5-foot-11, 216-pound back led the league in rushing in his rookie year in 2017 and has run for 2,151 yards on 453 carries (4.7 yards per attempt) with 15 touchdowns, 79 catches for 833 yards and an extra 10 touchdowns in his two seasons. Even though Hunt will likely face a lengthy suspension to start the 2019 season, his upside is clear and he gives Cleveland another young and powerful rusher alongside Nick Chubb. The addition of Hunt hurts the long-term value of Chubb in this backfield, and it'll be interesting to see how the two will co-exist whenever Hunt is allowed to play again. Led by promising young quarterback Baker Mayfield, Cleveland's offense just became much more dangerous.
The Browns signed Hunt on Monday.
Fantasy Spin: This is huge news for Nick Chubb, who likely will be in a committee with Hunt for the coming season when Hunt makes it on the field after likely serving a suspension.
Houston Texans impending free-agent FS Tyrann Mathieu, Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown, Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent LB Preston Brown, Arizona Cardinals impending free-agent LB Deone Bucannon, Carolina Panthers impending free-agent offensive tackle Daryl Williams and Miami Dolphins impending free-agent OT Ja'Wuan James are all names to keep an eye on for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jenna Laine. Free-agent PK Matt Bryant (Falcons) and free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) have already been discussed as potential targets as well.
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt's (Chiefs) ongoing investigation by the NFL will be finished soon, according to commissioner Roger Goodell. Hunt is able to sign with a team, but he would not be able to play as long as he's on the commissioner's exempt list.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt's dynasty fantasy value isn't completely eradicated, but he's a non-factor right now in redraft leagues. If/when he does sign with someone, he'll have RB1 upside.
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) could be of interest to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Fantasy Spin: As Rapoport stated, ultimately the decision to pursue and/or sign Hunt will be up to the team owners. As long as he remains a free agent, Hunt has no value in traditional leagues.
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt is unlikely to be of interest to the New York Jets, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt would be an obvious upgrade on Isaiah Crowell, Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire, but Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has been impacted by the effects of domestic violence - a family friend was killed - so it is understandable why New York will go in a different direction.
The Philadelphia Eagles could be a landing spot for former Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, in the opinion of Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, who believes the team may be willing to move past Hunt's off-the-field incident based on their previous interest in Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon when he was coming out of Oklahoma -- Mixon was also recorded striking a woman.
Fantasy Spin: On the field, signing Hunt makes all the sense in the world for a team that lacked explosiveness in the backfield, especially once Jay Ajayi went down. The question is whether or not the Eagles believe pursuing Hunt would be worth the inevitable PR hit. Someone is going to sign Hunt, and Philadelphia could be one of the more appealing destinations in terms of fantasy value.
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) is receiving interest from multiple teams and could sign with a team in the near future, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt likely will receive a lengthy suspension for his off-field incident but still has a chance to play in 2019. It is not known if he will be able to find a starting job in free agency but has shown he can be productive when he plays. Owners will know more about his fantasy value later in the offseason.
Although there is no official deadline, multiple sources believe that the National Football League will wrap up their investigations into three incidents involving free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) before the start of free agency in March.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt has yet to speak with league investigators, which is expected to be the final step of the process before any potential disciplinary action is taken. Multiple teams have done research on Hunt and contacted him in the hopes that he will be eligible to resume playing at some point during the 2019 season. From a fantasy standpoint, he is worth hanging on to in dynasty leagues and deep keeper formats.
Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) reportedly spoke to Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy by phone one week ago, but the team remains noncommittal on the idea of pursuing Hunt at this point, according to Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com.
Fantasy Spin: Nagy was the offensive coordinator in Kansas City during Hunt's rookie year in 2017, thus making a reunion something of a possibility. However, Hunt is reportedly being investigated for three separate off-field incidents, so it is more likely Chicago and every other potential suitor will wait for the league to decide on how long they intend to suspend him before offering him a contract.
