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.

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.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt registered 62 rushing yards on 10 attempts in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he didn't have a reception on two targets.
Huddle Up: Hunt's fantasy ceiling is a bit limited as long as Nick Chubb remains healthy. However, Hunt remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues heading into Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed 13 times for 11 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he added one reception for 10 yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Nick Chubb was running with authority in the rain, and head coach Kevin Stefanski rightly stuck with the hot hand which was not Hunt. It was a tough pill to swallow for Hunt's fantasy owners, but with Chubb back from injury, you knew Hunt's role would be affected negatively. He remains more of a RB3 or flex fantasy in Week 12 at Jacksonville in what should be a favorable matchup.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt rushed 19 times for 104 yards in Week 10 against the Houston Texans and he added three receptions for 28 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: Hunt and his fantasy owners saw the return of Nick Chubb from a multi-week injury absence, but Hunt and Chubb split the carries 19-19, and Hunt actually had 22 total backfield touches with his three grabs. It was a decent fantasy showing for Hunt, even with his workload taking a bit of a hit. He remains a solid low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt ran 14 times for 66 yards in Week 8 against the Las Vegas Raiders and he had two receptions for seven yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Hunt was held out of the end zone for just the second time in the past seven games. The good news is his 4.7 yards per rushing attempt was his highest since Week 4. You'll need to make alternate plans in fantasy leagues in Week 9 with the Browns on a bye.
