Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Half PPR Rest of Season Rankings
Kareem Hunt Note

After the disappointing performance in Week 6, you might be able to get Hunt cheaper than you should. Look, he's not going to come cheap, but remember you'd be buying what might be the No. 1 fantasy running back over the next two weeks when Hunt plays the Bengals and the Raiders, two teams that have been obliterated by running backs. There will be no "buy low" window for him after Week 7.

Odell Beckham Jr. Note

Beckham fought through a core injury all last year, which he addressed this offseason with surgery. His talent is undeniable, but there are plenty of red flags. He's missed 21 games already in his career, has to share targets with a crowded group of pass-catchers, and will be playing for a head coach in Kevin Stefanski whose offense ran the ball 48% of the time last year. So it's unlikely that Beckham is going to see close to the more than 10 targets per game he has averaged in his career. There's immense upside with Beckham because, well, he's Beckham. But he's not going to see the 24.9% target share he saw last year, so you're better off taking him as your WR2 and hoping everything breaks right.

Nick Chubb Note

Chubb suffered an MCL injury in Week 4 and is being placed on IR. He is expected to miss about six weeks of action. Obviously, fantasy managers want to do what they can to hold Chubb on their rosters, and he should be a strong option down the stretch if managers can afford to wait that long.

Austin Hooper Note

Hooper underwent an appendectomy prior to Week 7, and will miss at least one game, but likely more. He had begun to see plenty of targets from Baker Mayfield and was slowly establishing himself as a borderline TE1. Move on from Hooper if you need to, but he'll likely provide value late in the season.

Baker Mayfield Note

Mayfield looked much more confident and competent against the Bengals in Week 2, and although it wasn't a huge fantasy day, he showed he can be a serviceable QB2. The Cleveland offense will go through the running game, so don't expect too many "boom" weeks. But there probably won't be too many total duds like in Week 1.

Cleveland Browns Note

D'Ernest Johnson Note

Johnson should get his chance at producing for the next several weeks with Nick Chubb set to miss time with his knee injury. He's been successful in his limited touches during his career, and with the Browns' strong running game, he could develop into a weekly Flex or RB2 option. Proceed with caution to start, but roster him everywhere.
