Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt's car was found to contain marijuana following a traffic stop Tuesday, Jan. 21, in which Hunt was issued a speeding citation in Ohio.
Huddle Up: Although Hunt wasn't cited for possession, he could face scrutiny from the league after sitting out the first half of the 2019 season due to a personal-conduct suspension. Without a ban, Hunt projects as a low-end RB2 entering next season.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt caught four passes for 33 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16. He also finished with zero rushing yards on three carries.
Huddle Up: Hunt has been involved in the running and passing game this season and should receive a solid amount of touches next week. He can be considered at least a flex option next week because of the favorable matchup.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed four times for 14 yards and caught eight of his nine targets for 62 yards in a 38-24 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Nick Chubb is the top dog in Cleveland's backfield, but Hunt typically sees about 10-15 touches and has been able to stay in the flex conversation in PPR formats thanks to his involvement in the passing game.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed nine times for 28 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added two grabs for 40 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Hunt has been making the most of his touches behind Nick Chubb, who had his sixth 100-yard rushing day of the season, including his second in three outings. The former rushing leader Hunt remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option, especially in PPR leagues, heading into Week 15 in Arizona.

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.
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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 RB Kareem Hunt will 'absolutely' continue to play a big role in the passing game, according to Jake Trotter of ESPN.
Huddle Up: 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.
Huddle Up: 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 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.
Huddle Up: 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.
