View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Hunt finished last season 21st in PPR and half-PPR points per game among RBs. That almost exactly matches his rankings in each category from 2020, Hunt’s 1st full year with the Browns.
  • Over the past 2 seasons, he ranks 27th among RBs in opportunities per game.
  • Hunt’s 7 healthy games in 2021 saw him garner 36% of Browns carries and 11.6% of targets. (He played just 1 healthy game without Nick Chubb.)
  • 2020, which saw Hunt play every game, produced shares of 33.3% carries and 9.3% targets with Chubb; 54.7% and 9.3%, respectively, without him.
  • Among 95 RBs with at least 100 opportunities (carries + targets) over the past 2 seasons, Chubb ranked 12th in total TD rate (4.56% of opportunities) and Hunt ranked 14th (4.52%).
  • Hunt ranked 6th in both yards after contact per attempt and Pro Football Focus elusive rating last season among 61 RBs with 70+ carries. That was up from 13th and 12th, respectively, in 2020.
  • Hunt narrowly trailed Chubb in red-zone snap rate last year: 51% to 45%. He tied for 38th at the position, vs. Chubb’s tie for 27th.
  • Hunt’s ADP has fallen this year. He sits in the middle of Round 8 in FFPC best-ball drafting and early in Round 8 on Underdog, as RB32 in both places. Hunt went mid-Round 5 in 2021 BestBall10s drafting; early Round 6 in 2020.
  • He missed 9 games last season amid 4 different injuries. None looks like an issue going forward.
  • Cleveland can still unload Hunt without a cap penalty. The team retained D’Ernest Johnson as a restricted free agent this offseason.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

There’s been much more change to the perception of Hunt than the reality of his production, if you compare this year’s ADPs with last season. At his Round 5-6 price in 2021 drafts, Hunt needed a Nick Chubb injury to keep him from disappointing. He got that, but lost more time to his own injuries. Fantasy drafters might be overreacting to that and/or Hunt’s potentially uncertain contract status. Even if the Browns unload Hunt this summer, we’d bet on him landing in a situation with work available. And he’s a high-upside talent in any backfield.

Kareem Hunt, RB CLE

3:58pm EST 12/30/22

Hunt healthy for Week 17

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (shoulder) logged full practice all week and carries no injury designation ahead of Week 17 vs. the Commanders. The veteran back has only tallied more than 10+ touches in 3 of the last 7 games. With minimal volume, it's tough to consider Hunt as anything but a desperation flex play. The Commanders' defense ranking as the 3rd-toughest matchup for opposing RBs in adjusted fantasy points allowed in 2022 doesn't help his case much either. There are likely better fantasy options than Hunt to choose from in the fantasy championship round.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (shoulder) practiced fully again on Thursday. He should be in line to suit up in Week 17 vs. the Commanders. Hunt is nothing more than a deep-league flex option against a Commanders defense that ranks as the 3rd-toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt (shoulder) was listed as a full participant in practice on Wednesday. We'll keep you in the loop if anything changes that could affect his status for Week 17 vs. the Commanders.

The forecast for today's Saints-Browns game calls for temperatures in the single digits with sustained winds of 20-25 mph and gusts of 40+. The wind chill is well below zero. They're brutal conditions that will significantly limit the passing and kicking games. Check out our projections for all the Saints and Browns players.

Browns RB Nick Chubb (foot) was a no-go at practice for the 2nd day in a row. Tomorrow's practice report will provide the final word on Chubb's ability to suit up vs. the Saints on Saturday. If Chubb can't go in Week 16, it would be a big boost to both Kareem Hunt and potentially D'Ernest Johnson. We'll stay on top of this one. Losing a top back like Chubb in the fantasy playoffs would certainly be disappointing.

Dynasty Write-up
Despite trade rumors, Hunt remained in Cleveland this past season. He simply never developed into a reliable fantasy option behind Nick Chubb. The former Chief, who turns 28 in July, will likely play elsewhere in 2023.
