There's no easy way to put this, but DO NOT DRAFT Hunt in your redraft league this year. It doesn't matter if he's there in the 13th round, let someone else take on that burden. Not only is he suspended for the first eight games of the season, but he's behind a guy who rushed for nearly 1,000 yards despite not starting until Week 7. Did I mention that running back was also drafted by the Browns at the start of the second-round in 2018? The first four weeks of the season are the most important weeks of the season for the waiver wire, so why hold yourself hostage with a guy who's not even a lock to play once his suspension is over? Not to mention bye week issues you'll have. On top of that, you've never seen him outside a Chiefs offense, where every running back put in the lineup succeeds. I'm not saying he's not a good player, but Chubb is better.

Kareem Hunt suspended 8 games

According to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter, Browns running back Kareem Hunt has been suspended eight games for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Fantasy Impact

We've been waiting for the suspension to come down and it was a minimum of six games, so this isn't a big surprise. Considering the nature of the crime, it's unlikely Hunt appeals, though it's possible he tries to knock it down to six games. The Browns don't really need him with Nick Chubb on the roster, though he does provide great depth for a team that has Super Bowl aspirations. Knowing there's no guaranteed role when he comes back from suspension, Hunt isn't worth a draft pick in redraft leagues with his eight-game suspension.
