The Draft Zone
 The last game (Week 4) in which BOTH Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert misses, Jerick McKinnon saw a 92% snap rate, leading to 22 RB opportunities (14 rush, 8 targets).
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Hunt scored a whopping 23.1 points against the Browns back in Week 2. Can we expect him to do that again? No, but we should expect something similar. Nick Chubb's injury has given Hunt a lot more work in this offense, and Cincinnati hasn't been great against the run, especially since they lost nose tackle D.J. Reader. Hunt is a great start at RB1 this week, and he's a good option in DFS as well. 
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.With Mostert out, McKinnon gets the nod as the next man up again. He'll be involved as a receiver out of the backfield, but based on his usage over the past couple of weeks, we can't expect him to see the majority of the carries. McKinnon can be viewed as a low-upside RB2 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.What happened last week after Raheem Mostert went down with his high-ankle sprain? McKinnon played the most snaps (23) but it was the rookie Hasty who out-carried him 9 to 6. Kyle Shanahan said after the game that Hasty had fresh legs, so they wanted to give him a run. What's the plan for this week with Mostert out? Well, that's up in the air, as Jeff Wilson might be able to come back from his calf injury. For now, we'll plan on Hasty and McKinnon forming a 1-2 punch. The good news is that the Patriots opponents have run the ball 48.3 percent of the time, which is the fourth-highest mark in the league. The bad news is that their opponents have run a league-low 58.4 plays per game, so it's amounted 27.4 running back touches per game (23.0 carries, 4.4 receptions). While their secondary has struggled a bit with all the losses this offseason, their front seven has done a great job holding running backs in check, as the 0.71 PPR points per opportunity ranks as the third-lowest in the league. It's limited opposing running backs, as just one running back has totaled more than 12.1 PPR points against them, and that was Chris Carson who racked up 108 total yards and a touchdown on 20 touches, something we can't anticipate for either of these backs. I thought Hasty looked good against the Rams last week and did nothing to receive less work, while McKinnon has averaged just 3.14 yards per carry since he was forced into a bigger role. My guess is that Hasty winds up with more carries while McKinnon gets most of the passing down work, but we've never seen this combination before. For now, I'd treat Hasty as a risk/reward RB3/flex-type play who has a lower floor than most. McKinnon should offer RB3 numbers and is likely safer, though he doesn't offer the upside that Hasty does.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bengals are 19th against fantasy running backs, Hunt should have a bounce back game in a much better matchup.The Patriots are 5th against fantasy running backs, but McKinnon should regain his flex position with Raheem Mostert out with a high ankle sprain.
