2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
On another team Hunt would be an elite RB1, but as his time in Cleveland has shown, there is still enough opportunity to produce top flight numbers even with Nick Chubb around. Despite playing 1B to his teammate, Hunt tallied over 1,100 total yards and 11 total touchdowns and had double digit carries in 13 of 18 games. But while the new system in Cleveland gives Hunt a ton of fantasy value across multiple formats, there were a few troubling signs that lead me to believe a repeat finish in the top-25 is going to be very tricky.

First, the complete lack of explosive plays by Hunt is alarming. While Chubb had 12 rushes of 20+ yards and three over 40 yards, Hunt lagged way behind with only 3 rushes past 20 yards. That's below a half dozen quarterbacks, and 3rd fewest among players with 150+ rushing attempts. The 2nd, and frankly bigger problem, is that despite being the team's clear passing down back, Hunt had only 38 receptions, just 1 more than he had in his 8-game debut season in Cleveland. This tells me a few things about this Cleveland offense. First, they simply don't scheme to throw to the backs that often out of the backfield. Hunt had more receptions on 1st down (12) than on 3rd down (11), which means that certainly isn't his defined role. Secondly, Hunt was arguably worse when Chubb was out for a 4-game stretch in Weeks 5-8, when despite being the workhorse, failed to reach 100 yards or find the endzone on the ground. An ankle injury definitely slowed him at times during the year, but it's going to take an injury to Chubb for Hunt to be more than a RB2 in 2021.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Browns hopeful to have Kareem Hunt in Week 12
Should practice this week
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 22, 12:33 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns coach Kevin Stefanski says he should be able to get Kareem Hunt and Jack Conklin back in practice this week. He said he’s hopeful they can face the #Ravens (Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: D'Ernest Johnson has filled in nicely while Hunt has been sidelined with a calf injury. Hunt hasn't played since Week 6 and his return would push Johnson back to a bench stash. Nick Chubb saw 22 of 30 running back carries for the Browns in Week 11.


Injury Case Keenum will start at QB for Cleveland
Shoulder injury for Baker

FFToday's Take: Baker Mayfield is dealing with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder but will sit out this short in hopes of being ready for Week 8 against the Steelers. The Browns are dealing with multiple injuries on the offensive front and will be without Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt in Week 7. Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) also remains a question mark.


Injury Browns rule out Nick Chubb for Thursday night
Baker Mayfield will practice on a limited basis Tuesday
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Oct 19, 1:17 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns Kevin Stefanski ruled out RB Nick Chubb for Thursday night's game against the #Broncos. Baker Mayfield (left shoulder) will practice on a limited basis today. (Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Browns are down Chubb and Kareem Hunt for Week 7 which means some combination of D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton will handle the running back duties. Felton is more of a pass catcher and more viable in PPR leagues while Johnson should handle the bulk of early-down work. The Broncos have given up the 4th fewest fantasy points to running backs.


Injury Kareem Hunt out multiple weeks
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 17, 12:04 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said RB Kareem Hunt's calf injury in the ballpark of 4-6 weeks, but he didn't get that exact number. (Nate Ulrich on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Baker Mayfield (shoulder) and Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) were also injured in this game leaving the Browns short-handed on a short week. Stefanski left open the possibility the Nick Chubb (calf) could be back for Thursday but that seems unlikely. D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton could be the running backs for Cleveland in Week 7.


Injury Nick Chubb ruled Out for Week 6
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 15, 12:27 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns RB Nick Chubb (calf) has been listed as OUT for Sunday’s game against Arizona. (Jake Trotter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Chubb missed practice all week with a calf injury before being ruled out Friday. Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before getting in limited work on Friday. He's expected to play and should get the bulk of the running back work. D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton have seen very limited work through five games.
