Kareem Hunt Fantasy Outlook

Kareem Hunt has to be the best backup in the NFL at any position. He led the NFL in rushing in 2017 with Kansas City. He is in his second season with Cleveland and will look to expand his role. 

Kevin Stefanski is the head man now in Cleveland. Stefanski has said he will let Alex Van Pelt call plays to start and see if he wants to take over after the preseason.

Stefanski has coached a number of positions. I expect he will try to have a balanced running and passing attack. Alex Van Pelt played QB and has been a QBs coach almost all of his career.

For the past two seasons he has been the QBs coach in Cincinnati and before that he was Green Bay’s QBs coach from 2014-2017.

Pros & Cons

Pros
  • No suspension this season
  • Fresh start
  • Unique player
Cons
  • Back Up Role

Hunt has shown his ability as a dual threat back. He is a good runner and receiver. I do not expect much of a timeshare in Cleveland. Nick Chubb has proven to be a good lead back.

It would not surprise me to see Hunt with a unique role however. Last season, while Stefanski was in Minnesota, the Vikings backs had over 100 receptions together.

That is good news for Hunt because I think he will see around 8 touches per game on average with most of them being designed passes or gadget plays specifically for him. 

Cleveland Browns Offensive Line 2020

Projected Starting Line: LT: Jedrick Wills, LG: Joel Bitonio, C: JC Tretter, RG: Wyatt Teller, RT: Jack Conklin

Both the tackles are new to the Cleveland roster. Wills was a first round pick in the 2020 Draft and Conklin signed a huge deal in free agency. Both tackles are similar combining physicality and athleticism. This should be a significant upgrade for the Browns.

The middle of the line is all returning starters. Bitonio has earned second team all pro honors and made the pro bowl each of the past two seasons. Tretter and Teller are the weaker two of the unit. Teller started 2019 as a backup but did move to full time starter in Week 9. 

This unit has made the most significant upgrade in the 2020 offseason. Great job by the Browns front office addressing this important need. The fruit will be seen this season from the Browns making OL a priority.

Kareem Hunt Strength of Schedule

The AFC North is known for its tough defense. Add in the fact that they play the NFC East in 2020 which had two top 10 defenses in 2019 and that is a tough slate for Nick Chubb. 

The Browns bye week is week 9 which is perfect. Great time for rest and gives fantasy owners time to plan for Chubb’s absence.

The Browns have only 2 primetime games this season. In week 2 the Browns host the Bengals on Thursday night and week 14 they host the Ravens on Monday Night Football.

Kareem Hunt Fantasy Playoff Schedule

Week 14 at Baltimore is tough. Week 15 should be much easier at the Giants. Week 16 the Browns stay at MetLife Stadium but will face the Jets before a regular season finale at home vs Pittsburgh. The Ravens, Jets and Steelers all finished in the top 10 during 2019 for total defense.

Kareem Hunt Injury History

None. He has missed 13 regular season games due to suspension. He currently does not face any suspension time. 

Kareem Hunt Skillset

Home Run Ability: B-. Hunt does not have blazing speed but has some long touchdowns on his resume.

Playmaking Ability: B-. Hunt is strong and able to break tackles often. 

Is Kareem Hunt a Good Fantasy Pick?

No. In this day and age of fantasy, it is important to have those backs that get the lion share. Hunt will only be an unpredictable flex option.
