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'm breaking with the consensus on Gordon. Yes, there are concerns about his injury and DUI, and yes, Phillip Lindsay looked great last Sunday. It's less risky to bench Gordon and see how the Broncos divvy up the carries, but Gordon currently ranks 12th in median points per game (14.75), and it'll be difficult for Denver to move away from him in a big spot. The Chiefs field an average defense against the run, so expect an average day out of Gordon. He's a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 for me here.
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.Gordon should return for this matchup after missing last week with an illness. While he does have the potential suspension hanging over his head, it might be a while before we get official word on that situation. Until we get word, Gordon should be viewed as a high-end RB3 in this matchup with Lindsay back and involved in this offense.
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.So, apparently, Gordon had strep throat last week and it was the reason for missing the game. He's still facing a possible three-game suspension by the league, so it's a situation we need to pay attention to as the week goes on. Lindsay stepped in and played well in his absence, racking up 101 yards on the ground against a tough Patriots run defense. Do the Broncos move towards more of a timeshare with Lindsay back to full health? Against the Chiefs, they'll want to utilize their running backs a lot. Their opponents have chosen a run play on 47.2 percent of plays, which ranks as the fifth-highest mark in the league. In terms of weighted opportunity, running backs average the 10th-most against the Chiefs, and though the numbers haven't been huge to this point, the level of competition has been weak. Per Football Outsiders DVOA, the Chiefs are still the sixth-worst run defense in the league. The question is: Can the Broncos keep the game close enough to keep getting touches to their running backs? Six different running backs have totaled 62 or more yards on the ground, while seven running backs have totaled at least 25 yards through the air. If Gordon plays, you have to assume he gets the majority of work, including pass-game and goal-line usage, which is important, so consider him a somewhat sturdy RB2, though the 18.8-point team-implied total is worrisome. Lindsay didn't even get a single target last week, which worries me about his floor. Lindsay also played this team twice last year without Gordon and finished two games with just 68 scoreless yards on 18 carries. He's more of an RB3/flex play this week who carries gamescript concerns, as he ran just 11 routes in Gordon's absence last week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bengals are 19th against fantasy running backs, Hunt should have a bounce back game in a much better matchup.
