Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt played 65 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday, Dec. 1, against the Pittsburgh Steelers while RB Nick Chubb played 59 percent of the snaps.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt ran the ball seven times for 46 yards and caught all five of his targets for 19 yards and a touchdown while Chubb totaled 79 yards but no scores. The two should remain in a relatively even timeshare, but Hunt's upside continues to rise the more he's on the field.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt carried the ball seven times for 46 yards and added five receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown in a 20-13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13. Hunt managed to find the end zone for the second straight week when he pulled in a 15-yard touchdown reception from Baker Mayfield in the second quarter. While he continues to cede most of the carries to Nick Chubb, Hunt has carved out a role as the team's No. 3 option in the passing attack. Hunt draws a beautiful Week 14 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt had seven runs for 46 yards in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers while adding five receptions for 19 yards and a score.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt had a total of 12 touches, 65 scrimmage yards and a touchdown to Nick Chubb's 17 total touches, 79 scrimmage yards and no scores. He has started to carve into Nick Chubb's playing time and is an excellent RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Browns host the Bengals in Week 14.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt will face the Pittsburgh Steelers for the second time in three games this weekend. Hunt had a solid game in a Week 11 win over the Steelers, catching six passes for 46 yards. He will look for more of the same in Week 13 against a Pittsburgh run defense that has been a quality unit this season. Pittsburgh ranks sixth in run-defense DVOA and is allowing the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. Despite the tough matchup, Hunt's involvement in the passing game keeps him on the map as a solid flex option in PPR leagues for Week 13.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed eight times for 37 yards and a score against the Miami Dolphins in Week 12 and he added two catches for nine yards.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt continues to spell Nick Chubb, and that role won't be changing anytime soon. Chubb went over 100 yards on the ground again, and he has 20 or more carries in six straight. Hunt remains best used as a flex fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams as long as Chubb is healthy. The Browns travel to meet the Steelers in Week 13.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt found the end zone for the first time all season in a 41-24 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 12. Hunt carried the ball eight times for 37 yards and a touchdown while adding two receptions for nine yards in the blowout win. Hunt punched in a six-yard touchdown in the second quarter, marking his first score since November of 2018 when he was a Kansas City Chief. Hunt's fantasy GMs have become accustomed to seeing him more involved in the passing attack but Cleveland didn't need much from him in that department during the easy win. Hunt will be on the flex radar in Week 13 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt draws a beautiful Week 12 matchup against a weak Miami Dolphins run defense. Miami ranks 29th in the league in run defense DVOA and is allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to the running back position. Hunt has been busy in the passing game in his two contests with the Browns, hauling in 13 of 17 targets for 90 yards. There is some concern that the Browns jump out to a big lead and lean run-heavy in the second half but Hunt could see a sizable workload on the ground if the team decides to give starter Nick Chubb a break. Treat Hunt as an RB2 in PPR leagues and a solid flex option in standard formats for Week 12.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt will 'absolutely' continue to play a big role in the passing game, according to Jake Trotter of ESPN.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt has 13 catches for 90 yards in two games for the Browns, and he has become a safety valve of sorts for quarterback Baker Mayfield. Throw in a handful of carries, and he is worth considering as a flex option in PPR formats.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt ran six times for 12 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11. He also caught six passes for 46 yards.
Fantasy Spin: For one week at least, Cleveland's passing game flowed through three players: Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry and Hunt. That trio was targeted on 25 of the team's 32 passes. It certainly looks like Nick Chubb will be their bruiser, and Hunt will chip in on passing downs. In that role he holds some flex appeal.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt carried the ball six times for 12 yards and added six receptions for 46 yards in a 21-7 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11. Hunt continues to be deployed as Cleveland's passing-down back, out-targeting Nick Chubb eight to one in the contest. Chubb also appeared to tweak his groin toward the end of the game, which could lead to more work for Hunt against the Miami Dolphins in Week 12 if Chubb is unable to play or is limited. Hunt's work in the passing game has him on the radar as a flex option in PPR leagues going forward.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt looked good in his season debut against the Buffalo Bills in Week 10. The veteran running back only saw four carries but he was used heavily in the passing game, catching 7-of-9 targets and often lined up as a wide receiver. Hunt draws a tough Week 11 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a defense that ranks 11th in DVOA against the run and is allowing the sixth-fewest fantasy points to running backs this season. While it isn't a great matchup, Hunt should see enough work in the passing game to merit a start as a flex option in PPR leagues against Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt played 54 percent of the offensive snaps against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, Nov. 10, but starter Nick Chubb played a three-week high of 81 percent in the 19-16 victory. RB Dontrell Hilliard played just eight offensive snaps for his lowest total since Week 5.
Fantasy Spin: Chubb ran 20 times for 116 yards while catching two of four targets for just five yards. Hunt totaled 74 yards from scrimmage on 11 touches with seven receptions and four carries. It's quite possible both could be effective fantasy options in the same games, but Chubb remains the definitive No. 1 option.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt will 'continue to get opportunities,' and head coach Freddie Kitchens expects Hunt's role to continue growing after playing well in Week 10.
Fantasy Spin: If the Browns have done one thing right this season, it might be that Nick Chubb has been a near-lock for 20 touches. That didn't change in Hunt's debut, even though the former Kansas City Chief finished with four carries and seven catches. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out going forward, but 10 touches per week will be enough for someone with Hunt's talent to be a serviceable flex option in most leagues.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed four times for 30 yards with seven receptions for 44 yards on nine targets in Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills in his team debut.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt's eight-game suspension ended before the bye and he was able to make his team debut, totaling 11 touches to 22 for Nick Chubb. As such, Hunt is worth a look as a RB3 or flex fantasy play in leagues of 12 or more teams moving forward. The Browns meet the Steelers in Week 11 on Thursday night.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt carried the ball four times for 30 yards and caught 7-of-9 targets for 44 yards in a 19-16 win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 10. In his first game with Cleveland, Hunt wound up operating as the team's primary pass-catching back, finishing third on the team in targets behind Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. While it is apparent that Hunt isn't going to siphon away very many of Nick Chubb's carries, he still merits instant flex consideration in PPR leagues thanks to his pass-catching role. Cleveland will face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt is slated to make his 2019 debut in Week 10 after serving an eight-game suspension. Hunt is expected to have a role with the Browns in their Week 10 showdown against the Buffalo Bills. While the workload split between Hunt and starter Nick Chubb is unknown, offensive coordinator Todd Monken told reporters that "anything's possible" when asked about whether the two could share the field. Fantasy gamers should treat Hunt as a flex option in fantasy for this week until they see how Cleveland plans to deploy the former Kansas City Chief.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt will 'definitely have a role' in his return from suspension in Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach Freddie Kitchens Monday, Nov. 4.
Fantasy Spin: Nick Chubb has played 74.6% of the offensive snaps this season while Dontrell Hilliard has played 17%. Hunt was much more involved in the ground game than as a pass-catcher during his time with the Kansas City Chiefs. Look for him to take over the backup duties from Hilliard before slowly taking touches away from Chubb.
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (abdomen) has been cleared by the NFL to rejoin the team and begin practicing with them Monday, Oct. 21.
Fantasy Spin: Hunt has been sidelined all season recovering from sports hernia surgery and serving an eight-game suspension for domestic abuse for an incident that occurred during his time with the Kansas City Chiefs. The former rushing champion is not eligible to return to game action until Week 10, so Nick Chubb will serve as a team's featured back for at least two more weeks. It's expected Hunt will serve as the change-of-pace back when he returns.
Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb will remain the team's primary back even after the return of RB Kareem Hunt from suspension, according to The Athletic's Jay Glazer, who says Hunt will be used as a change of pace.
Fantasy Spin: Chubb has been Cleveland's best offensive player over the first month and is solidly among the top-10 fantasy backs. The caveat has always been how much Hunt will play when he returns from suspension. If Glazer is correct, Chubb should remain an RB1 throughout the season with Hunt being a possible flex option upon returning.
