Kareem Hunt Fantasy Football Outlook (2023)

By Andrew Erickson (FantasyPros), Fri, Sep 1st 2023, 10:35am EDT

There should have been a stronger case made that the Browns offense would struggle in 2022, making Kareem Hunt a tough bet to also deliver as the 1B to Nick Chubb's 1A. Hunt's bizarre lack of usage is what really held him back, but highly drafting No. 2 RBs in offenses with major question marks or turnovers is a tough sell. Hunt played over 50% of the snaps once all year (Week 1) and averaged just 9.4 touches per game, which ranked outside the top 50 running backs in 2022. In 2021, Hunt averaged nearly 3 more touches per game. He was also not particularly efficient with a career-low 3.8 yards per carry. He reportedly had a great visit with the Saints to fill-in as the team's receiving back with Alvin Kamara out the first 3 weeks of the season and Eno Benjamin placed on IR. That would give him some value in PPR formats to open the year as a fantasy RB4. He is also going to visit the Colts, which would be a major boon for his fantasy value amid the Jonathan Taylor situation.
