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.I love the Chargers backfield this week. They have an excellent matchup against the run-funnel Jaguars, a team that's giving up 27.7 points per game to the position. That said, Justin Jackson is the clear leader in this backfield. Joshua Kelley will have a role behind him, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him get red-zone work, but Jackson is the better back to start. Jackson is a mid-range RB2 for me, while Kelley is more of a low-end RB3/flex.
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.Kelley didn't inherit as much of the workload as we may have expected heading into their matchup with New Orleans, but that doesn't mean that he's not a solid start here against Jacksonville. Kelley still projects to be the goal line back and he should see plenty of scoring opportunities against the Jags run defense. Kelley can be viewed as a high-end RB3 with upside in this one.
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.In a game that was close throughout, Jackson out-touched Kelley 20 to 12. He also outperformed him, racking up 94 total yards against a tough Saints defense. Did he earn the starting job? He should've considering Kelley has now averaged 2.8 or less yards per carry in three of their last four games and offers minimal upside in the receiving department. Still, it's likely to be a timeshare. There should be plenty of carries to go around this week, as the Jaguars are a team that's faced a lot of volume. Their opponents have gone with a run play on 48.7 percent of snaps, which is the highest mark in football. That's led to a massive 31.8 running back touches per game against them, which is also the highest number in the league. Despite the fact that the Jaguars have played just six games, there have already been eight running backs who've amassed 15 touches against them, including three of them with 25 or more. It's not just a lot of touches, either. The efficiency has been rock-solid, as the 0.93 PPR points per opportunity they've allowed is the ninth-highest mark in football. In a game that was close throughout against the Saints, Jackson played 42 snaps to Kelley's 25, so we must assume he's the lead back here. Jackson should be able to be plugged in as a low-end RB2 with upside, while Kelley should still reach double-digit touches and gets into the low-end RB3/flex conversation.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bengals are 19th against fantasy running backs, Hunt should have a bounce back game in a much better matchup.
