Hunt was the 10th ranked fantasy back this year with 199.5 fantasy points, but he also benefited from Nicholas Chubb missing 4 games. He should still have a significant role in 2021, but he is more of a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 if Chubb stays healthy the entire season.

25yo - 198 carries, 4.2ypc with 38 receptions and double digit TDs (11). This looks like his ceiling with a healthy Nick Chubb.

There's long been a perception that Kareem Hunt carries massive upside for when Nick Chubb is injured, in 2020 we discovered that's not as true as we thought. The former Chief's best two fantasy performances came when Chubb was playing as he struggled to make the most of the added volume and lost work in the passing game. He didn't even pass 20 PPR points in a game when running as a lone wolf. Hunt simply isn't as good as Chubb and he needs his teammate to wear down offenses so that he can shine. That ultimately begs the question why Hunt is necessary in Cleveland and the answer is he may not be. The Browns can save $10 million by releasing him in 2021 and $6 million with no dead cap money by releasing him in 2022. Either possibility is realistic but with cap space necessary for re-signing Baker Mayfield Chubb in 2022, it seems likely he might have just one season left in him. That's actually great news for Hunt owners, as the black mark of his despicable actions from several years ago lingers less ominously these days and he should easily find a starting role somewhere in the league. He's a strong hold and a cheeky buy low when your leaguemates become worried by his lack of production in Cleveland.
