Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Hunt disappointed fantasy managers in week five, but this offense simply couldn't get anything going with Mayfield struggling. While it might be hard to trust Hunt after the numbers he just put up, he absolutely belongs in your starting lineup as a top-tier option against the Bengals run defense. Hunt's a locked in RB1 this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We talked about how tough of a matchup the Steelers were last week, right? Sadly, it was even worse than we thought, as he finished with just 57 total yards and no touchdown. That's the bad news. The good news is that he should find his way back into fantasy owners' hearts this week with a matchup against the Bengals, a team that he and Nick Chubb trampled on back in Week 2 when they combined for 234 total yards and four touchdowns. Hunt won't be getting the 35 touches that they combined for, but this is a team that's faced an average of 27.3 running back touches per game, so we're looking at what should be 20-plus touches for Hunt in this game. There have already been eight different running backs who've totaled at least 57 yards on the ground against them. Guys, they've played just six games. Outside of that game against the Browns, they've only allowed one running back touchdown (Joshua Kelley), which is a tad worrisome for running backs moving forward, but not enough to move me off Hunt as a candidate for the RB1 this week. He's a must-start everywhere and should be fresh coming off just a 15-touch game. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bengals are 19th against fantasy running backs, Hunt should have a bounce back game in a much better matchup.
