  • See our experts' fantasy football rankings, 2019 projections, analysis and more for Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt.

Hunt is suspended for the first eight games of the season, but he’s one of the best backs at breaking tackles and offers enough upside as a receiver to potentially dominate down the stretch.

While Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson are undoubtedly talented, it wouldn’t make much sense for the Browns to take this type of risk and not plan on utilizing Hunt as the featured back once he returns.

He led the league in rushing as a rookie with 1,327 yards and scored 14 touchdowns in just 11 games in 2018 prior to his release. “Running backs don’t matter” critics might dismiss this success as a byproduct of the Chiefs’ ever-explosive offense, but it’s tough to find a hole in Hunt’s on-field game based on his 28 career games.
