Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt says he's fully healthy after battling calf issues last season. "I'm good, I'm 100 percent, I have some time to heal this offseason and get back to it," Hunt said. "So body is feeling good, nothing's bothering me." Hunt also reiterated that he's hoping to get a contract extension from Cleveland. "I hope I get paid," Hunt added. "So you know, whatever they decide, they know I'm going to come out there and give it my all and I'll do whatever I can to help the team win."
Huddle Up: Hunt looks set to play out the final year of his contract with the Browns. He'll continue to form one of the best running back duos in the NFL with Nick Chubb in 2022 and has standalone value as a flex play.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt said he hopes to sign contract extension with the Browns at some point but is not sure of the team's interest level. He said his agent has had some discussions with the Browns but does not know how far the talks have gone.
Huddle Up: Hunt will be with the team for at least one more season and should see a decent amount of touches each week. He can be considered at least a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt and the team have not engaged in "substantive extension talks," according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. However, Hunt is still very much in the plans for the 2022 season, per Cabot.
Huddle Up: Cabot also emphasized that Hunt and Nick Chubb appeared on the field together on several occasions throughout Wednesday's OTA session and that the pair could be featured together more often this season. At worst, Hunt is a very good handcuff to Chubb who possesses high-end flex/low-end RB2 value even when Chubb is healthy. Both players' fantasy values could be set to increase if/when Deshaun Watson is able to play this season.

The Cleveland Browns and RB Kareem Hunt haven't had "substantive extension talks," The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reported. She also notes Hunt is "still very much in the Browns' plans for this season."
Huddle Up: Hunt is on track to play out the final year of his contract. He'll remain behind Nick Chubb but should have standalone value as a flex play in points-per-reception leagues on a fairly consistent basis.

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt won't see his workload impacted by 2022 fifth-round pick, RB Jerome Ford, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com writes. Kay Cabot notes Ford ''was drafted in part to have a quality back in the pipeline'' with Hunt set to hit free agency in 2023 and D'Ernest Johnson's future with the team in question.
Huddle Up: Hunt will continue in the same complementary role he has had since going to Cleveland. Nick Chubb remains the Browns running back to own, but Hunt is a must-have for Chubb owners and should have some standalone value with his potential to produce RB2 numbers on a fairly consistent basis. Neither Ford nor Johnson are viable fantasy options unless Hunt and/or Chubb get hurt, although the rookie is an intriguing stash in dynasty formats with the uncertain futures of Hunt and Johnson.

Huddle Up: Nick Chubb should receive most of the work at running back, but D'Ernest Johnson may also see a few touches. Chubb should be a starting option in all leagues, while Johnson should only be a possible flex option in very deep leagues.
