RB - CLE
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt (ankle) is inactive and won't play in Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Hunt has been bothered by an ankle injury since Week 14, and with nothing to play for, Cleveland decided to rest the talented running back. He will finish the season with 386 rushing yards, five touchdowns while catching 22 passes 174 yards over eight games in 2021. Nick Chubb and D'Ernest Johnson will lead Cleveland's backfield once again. Chubb is a strong option this week and is currently seventh among all running backs in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.
Browns running back Kareem Hunt (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Hunt, who was inactive last Monday, was limited in practice this week. If active, he'll back up Nick Chubb and serve as a high-end RB3. However, if he can't suit up, D'Ernest Johnson would operate behind Chubb.
Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt is officially inactive for Monday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Hunt missed practice on Thursday but was able to log limited sessions on Friday and Saturday. However, he apparently did not show enough to convince the Browns that he should be active for Monday Night Football. Nick Chubb will likely handle the bulk of the carries but D’Ernest Johnson should still be good for 8-12 touches if gamescrript permits.
Kareem Hunt has been listed as questionable ahead of Monday's game against the Steelers.
Hunt is tough to trust championship week in his return from injury if he does play and Cleveland playing on Monday night this week makes him even riskier to wait on. It is likely best to not rely on Hunt this week unless you are in a very desperate situation in a deeper league.
Browns RB Kareem Hunt returned to practice in a limited capacity on Friday, but his availability is still in question for Week 17 due to an ankle injury.
Hunt hasn't been healthy, or a factor in fantasy since Week 5. It will be hard to trust him in what is likely the fantasy championship game in Week 17. Fantasy managers might want to look elsewhere for a FLEX play.
