Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed 13 times for 51 yards in Week 2 against the Houston Texans, and he added one catch for two yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Hunt had the total of 14 touches, to just 12 for starter Nick Chubb, but he didn't do much with the extra workload. Chubb is still the better fantasy option heading into Week 3 against the visiting Chicago Bears.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed six times for 33 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added three grabs for 28 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Hunt averaged 5.5 yards per carry, and Nick Chubb (15-83-2) averaged the exact same thing per attempt. The backup is still a solid RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues. The Browns host the Houston Texans in Week 2.

Cleveland Browns RBs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt may be on the field at the same time at some points this season, according to running backs coach Stump Mitchell.
Huddle Up: Chubb will be the starting running back for the Browns, but Hunt will still have an important role in the offense. Chubb should be a No. 1 or No. 2 back in fantasy leagues, while Hunt can be a No. 3 running back or flex option.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt said recently that he believes both he and RB teammate Nick Chubb can both eclipse 1,000 rushing yards in the 2021 season. 'I believed it was possible last year, too, but some things happened,' Hunt told Cleveland.com. 'We'll learn from it and get better and hopefully continue to put in good work this year.'
Huddle Up: While Hunt fell 159 rushing yards short of 1,000 a year ago, Chubb churned out 1,067. Both backs, though, finished with at least 1,145 yards from scrimmage and 11 TDs to finish as top-11 PPR RBs even though Chubb missed four games due to injury. If he can stay healthier, Chubb figures to get more touches and projects as a solid RB1, but Hunt's superior pass-catching ability should keep him in the low-end RB2 mix.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt had 21 yards on seven carries against the New York Giants on Sunday, Dec. 20. He also had three receptions for seven yards.
Huddle Up: Hunt has been an excellent complement to Nick Chubb and did strong work filling in for him while he was out, but Hunt's workload and production are rather volatile. It's also not encouraging that his two worst yardage games of the season have come in the past five games. Hunt definitely feels like more of an RB3/flex play right now than an RB2, even in a plus matchup like the Jets.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed six times for 33 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens and he added six receptions for a team-high 77 yards and a touchdown on seven targets.
Huddle Up: Hunt's six carries were actually a season low, which might be a bit alarming to his fantasy owners, but his catches and receiving yardage total was a season best. It was also his first game with two scores since Week 4 in Dallas. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 15 against the New York Giants on Sunday night.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed 14 times for just 33 yards in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans while adding three catches for 24 yards on his three targets.
Huddle Up: Hunt has struggled a little bit lately, going for 2.4 yards per carry or worse in two of his past three outings, and he has just one rushing touchdown and no receiving scores in the past five. As such, treat him more of a RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 14 against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Hunt should receive his normal workload and likely will be involved in both the running and passing game. He should be at least a flex option in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 12/04/2020 12:14 am GMT
Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (thigh) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 3.
Huddle Up: Hunt is still posting solid numbers even with Nick Chubb back in the lineup. He should see a solid amount of touches this week and can be a flex option in all leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (thigh) was limited at practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.
Huddle Up: Hunt bounced back last week with 62 rushing yards on 10 carries. He remains a viable FLEX option when active, even though Nick Chubb has been putting up much better numbers.
