Kareem Hunt Week 11 Fantasy Outlook


Recommended Posts

Projection: 12 pts (0.5 PPR)

Research: Last week against the Bills, Kareem Hunt made his return to the NFL after serving an 8 game suspension for domestic violence. However, unlike his past seasons with the Chiefs, Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens got him significantly more involved in the passing game, which is great news for all PPR fantasy football owners. In fact, during his 27 game tenure with the chiefs, Hunt had a total of 79 receptions, which equates to approximately 3 receptions per game. During his first game with the Browns, Hunt had a total of 7 receptions, which is more than double his career average. Although, with Nick Chubb as the primary running back, receptions will be vital to Hunt’s success, as he only saw 4 rushing attempts.

During the Wednesday weekly press conference, Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens was asked about Kareem Hunt and if he was satisfied with the amount of playing time he got. The coach responded with “yeah, I think I played him about right”. He also said that he likes how “unselfish” Kareem Hunt is as a player. Based on those responses and the outcome of the football game, it appears the coach will probably continue to use the same formula this week against the Steelers. The Steelers are ranked 6th against the run, which could be problematic for Chubb and a good opportunity for Hunt in the passing game. Until Hunt is fully integrated into the Browns system, expect him to be in the flex category range.
