RB Kareem Hunt went unclaimed on waivers on Monday. He's now a free agent. "Several teams" considering claiming Hunt, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but they all ultimately decided against it. It obviously would have brought a media backlash. And Hunt is facing a lengthy suspension anyway. We're guessing that he'll get another shot in the NFL -- he's an elite talent and just 23 -- but that's certainly not guaranteed. Hunt is worth stashing on dynasty rosters, though.

Recent Shark Bites

We haven't heard much about RB Kareem Hunt since he signed with the Browns -- a good thing considering his previous off-field trouble. But Nick Shook of the Browns' official website says Hunt looked like the same player this spring as the guy we saw in Kansas City the past 2 seasons. "Even in shorts and helmets, it's clear to the naked eye that Hunt is a special player who could become the Browns' best weapon not wearing No. 13 [Odell Beckham]," Shook writes. Hunt, of course, is suspended for the first 8 games of the season, leaving him as no more than a late-rounder in fantasy drafts. But it's a reminder that he's a strong bet to be a factor -- and a problem for Nick Chubb owners -- in the season's 2nd half.

Browns RB Kareem Hunt was questioned by police after a bar fight in Cleveland late Saturday night, according to insider Mary Kay Cabot. Hunt has not been charged, and police say there is no video or documentation of Hunt being involved. Still, it's not a great look considering Hunt's history. He's already suspended for the first 8 games of 2019 for violating the league's personal-conduct policy. We'll continue to keep tabs on this latest situation.

RB Kareem Hunt has been suspended 8 games for violating the league's personal conduct policy. He was investigated for multiple incidents, including the assault at a Cleveland hotel last February. Between the missed time, a new offense to settle into and the presence of Nick Chubb, it's tough to imagine Hunt being a real fantasy factor in 2019. He's just a late-round flier in early best-ball drafts. Hunt will be a restricted free agent in 2020 and will still be just 25 when that season kicks off.

The Browns have signed former Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt. It's surprising news in terms of both timing and landing spot. Hunt is still on the Commissioner's Exempt List after video was released of his February altercation with a woman inside a Cleveland hotel. It's unclear when he'll be reinstated and how long a suspension he'll garner to open the 2019 campaign. And the Browns, of course, already have RBs Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson on the roster. We'll see when Hunt is ruled eligible to return, but his addition makes Chubb a riskier pick in early fantasy drafts. We've seen him going in the late 1st and early 2nd round of FFPC best-ball drafts.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that former Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt faces a suspension of more than 6 games as the NFL investigates 2 separate incidents. We wouldn't expect Hunt to get another shot with any team until this is resolved. We'll see whether his career continues after that.
