    Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt has drawn the praise of former Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce. 'I think so, without a doubt,' Kelce said Saturday, June 15, when asked if he believes the Browns are getting the best version of Hunt. '... I think you guys are getting an unbelievable athlete, somebody who can change the game with one or two carries, one or two touches and really give you a chance to win.'

    Huddle Up: Hunt is suspended for the first eight games of the season due to his personal-conduct violations, but he could be a factor late in the fantasy season while also serving as a potential spoiler for Nick Chubb and his fantasy owners. Don't bother, though, with trying to stash Hunt from the start of the season unless you have the bench spot to burn.

  • Posted: 4/7/2019 7:31am ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb is likely to remain the starter in 2019 even after RB Kareem Hunt is eligible to return from his eight-game suspension, in the opinion of beat writer Scott Petrak. Chubb earned the team's trust with a strong rookie year, but Hunt could be the starter in 2020.

    Huddle Up: Chubb will be an RB2 for the bulk of the fantasy season, and Hunt will need time to acclimate himself in the offense and kick rust off. It could be Week 10 before Hunt makes a considerable dent in Chubb's fantasy stock. Hunt is worth stashing as an RB5, but Chubb seems to be safe atop the pecking order.

  • Posted: 3/15/2019 7:07am ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt was suspended eight games Friday, March 15, for violating the personal conduct policy, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Hunt can still appeal the ruling, but he's gone for 75 percent of the fantasy season in a lot of leagues. You're really going to have to be lucky avoiding the injury bug if you're going to carry him as an RB5 all season. There is obvious risk of rust and obvious reward for the latter part of the season and playoffs. Nick Chubb will be an RB2 or RB3 in Hunt's stead.

  • Posted: 3/14/2019 10:24am ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt is likely facing a multiple-game disciplinary suspension, but Browns general manager John Dorsey said Thursday, March 14, he doesn't have any updated information on the specifics of the suspension. Dorsey did add that Hunt has been at the team's facilities and has been doing a 'great job.'

    Huddle Up: Until we get clarity on the length of Hunt's ban, he'll be a late-round fantasy draft option who could pay off late next season.

  • Posted: 3/4/2019 5:04pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt is expected to be suspended for his off-field issues, but NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said there is no timetable for a decision.

    Huddle Up: Hunt is expected to receive a lengthy suspension, but the team will have Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson to play at the position while Hunt is out. He is will be a risky option in fantasy leagues next season but could help during the second half of the season.

  • Posted: 2/28/2019 9:17am ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt's addition was helped by general manager John Dorsey's 2016 experience in Kansas City in deciding whether to draft WR Tyreek Hill in 2016. When you make a decision of that magnitude, you have to have depth of knowledge,' Dorsey said Thursday, Feb. 28, at the NFL Scouting Combine. 'You have to be able to communicate what everybody sees, and then from a managing up position, you have to be able to express that with clarity to your bosses and get them to understand that this is a good person, so just trust us on this.'

    Huddle Up: Signing Hunt was one thing, but having him actually able to play will be another as he remains on the Commissioner's Exempt List. That likely will be the case for a good chunk of the 2019 season.

  • Posted: 2/12/2019 3:18pm ET

    Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt could be suspended up to 10 or 12 games as a result of the domestiv violence incident he was involved in last year, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: The Browns, of course, knew this before signing him, but they took a chance on Hunt with a one-year deal anyway. As for Hunt's fantasy value, it is greatly hindered by the presence of Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson and his impending suspension. As of now he is merely worth a waiver wire add in dynasty leagues if available.

  • Posted: 2/11/2019 11:00am ET

    Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt signed a one-year contract that is for more than the league minimum and could be worth more than $1 million with the Cleveland Browns on Monday, Feb. 11.

    Huddle Up: This move isn't a surprise given the fact current Cleveland general manager John Dorsey was one of the people responsible for drafting Ohio native Hunt when he was still employed with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017, but just about everything else about this move is shocking. The league still has yet to announce how long Hunt will be suspended for his off-field issues, plus rookie Nick Chubb quickly emerged as one of the league's best backs near the end of the season. Hunt figures to serve a suspension for the better part of the 2019 season, but Hunt's arrival could damage Chubb's dynasty stock if he hangs around in Cleveland past this year.

  • Posted: 1/30/2019 1:15pm ET

    Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt's (Chiefs) ongoing investigation by the NFL will be finished soon, according to commissioner Roger Goodell. Hunt is able to sign with a team, but he would not be able to play as long as he's on the commissioner's exempt list.

    Huddle Up: Hunt's dynasty fantasy value isn't completely eradicated, but he's a non-factor right now in redraft leagues. If/when he does sign with someone, he'll have RB1 upside.

  • Posted: 1/29/2019 3:08pm ET

    Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) could be of interest to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: As Rapoport stated, ultimately the decision to pursue and/or sign Hunt will be up to the team owners. As long as he remains a free agent, Hunt has no value in traditional leagues.

  • Posted: 1/28/2019 10:47am ET

    Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt is unlikely to be of interest to the New York Jets, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

    Huddle Up: Hunt would be an obvious upgrade on Isaiah Crowell, Bilal Powell and Elijah McGuire, but Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has been impacted by the effects of domestic violence - a family friend was killed - so it is understandable why New York will go in a different direction.

  • Posted: 1/23/2019 10:43pm ET

    The Philadelphia Eagles could be a landing spot for former Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, in the opinion of Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski, who believes the team may be willing to move past Hunt's off-the-field incident based on their previous interest in Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon when he was coming out of Oklahoma -- Mixon was also recorded striking a woman.

    Huddle Up: On the field, signing Hunt makes all the sense in the world for a team that lacked explosiveness in the backfield, especially once Jay Ajayi went down. The question is whether or not the Eagles believe pursuing Hunt would be worth the inevitable PR hit. Someone is going to sign Hunt, and Philadelphia could be one of the more appealing destinations in terms of fantasy value.

  • Posted: 1/20/2019 9:23am ET

    Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) is receiving interest from multiple teams and could sign with a team in the near future, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Hunt likely will receive a lengthy suspension for his off-field incident but still has a chance to play in 2019. It is not known if he will be able to find a starting job in free agency but has shown he can be productive when he plays. Owners will know more about his fantasy value later in the offseason.

  • Posted: 1/20/2019 6:12am ET

    Although there is no official deadline, multiple sources believe that the National Football League will wrap up their investigations into three incidents involving free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) before the start of free agency in March.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has yet to speak with league investigators, which is expected to be the final step of the process before any potential disciplinary action is taken. Multiple teams have done research on Hunt and contacted him in the hopes that he will be eligible to resume playing at some point during the 2019 season. From a fantasy standpoint, he is worth hanging on to in dynasty leagues and deep keeper formats.

  • Posted: 12/9/2018 7:39am ET

    Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) entered counseling earlier this week for alcohol and anger management, according to multiple sources with knowledge of his situation.

    Huddle Up: Hunt is facing a possible lengthy suspension from the NFL for three off-field incidents which have happened since January. Any disciplinary action taken by the league is likely to carry over to the 2019 season, which would make him a risky fantasy option in redraft leagues. Hunt is worth holding on to in dynasty and deep keeper leagues for now.

  • Posted: 12/4/2018 10:00am ET

    Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt is being investigated for his role in three off-field incidents as the NFL works toward a final discipline decision for the former Kansas City Chiefs running back, sources said Tuesday, Dec. 4. Hunt likely faces a multigame suspension stretching into the 2019 season.

    Huddle Up: From the strictly fantasy perspective, Hunt is worth hanging on to in dynasty and deep keeper leagues, but even if he does land with another team this offseason, expect him to miss at least half of next season if not more.

  • Posted: 12/2/2018 9:15am ET

    Impending free-agent RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) is facing a suspension of more than six games because of multiple off-field incidents, according to sources. He may look to start serving the suspension immediately if he signs with a team before the end of the season.

    Huddle Up: Hunt may have trouble finding a new team at this point, so he likely would serve at least part of the suspension next season. His fantasy value for the rest of this season is uncertain, so owners can consider keeping him on the bench until a final decision is made. He will be a risky option next season since he likely will not play a full season.

  • Posted: 11/30/2018 6:18pm ET

    The Kansas City Chiefs released RB Kareem Hunt Friday, Nov. 30, and placed on the commissioner's exempt list following the release of video showing Hunt involved in a physical altercation with a woman. 'As part of our internal discussions with Kareem, several members of our management team spoke directly to him,' the Chiefs said in a statement. 'Kareem was not truthful in those discussions. The evidence released today confirms that fact. We are releasing Kareem immediately.'

    Huddle Up: Spencer Ware should take over as the starting running back for the Chiefs the rest of the way and becomes a must-add option in all formats.

  • Posted: 11/30/2018 1:58pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (personal) was sent home Friday, Nov. 30, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano, as the team contemplates its options following the release of a February videotape of Hunt getting into a physical altercation with a woman in which he shoves her, charges at her and kicks her in the hallway of a Cleveland apartment building.

    Huddle Up: Stay tuned, as there figures to be a number of updates in the coming days. Graziano mentions the commissioner's exempt list as the most likely short-term resolution, although there is much that needs to be sorted out. From a fantasy perspective only, Spencer Ware needs to be owned in every league until the league and/or the team announces what Hunt's fate will be.

  • Posted: 11/19/2018 9:03pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 14 times for 70 yards in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams and he added three grabs for 41 yards and a touchdown on four targets.

    Huddle Up: If you had a fantasy guy going in this game featuring 105 points you likely did pretty well for yourself. You'll need to make alternate plans next week, as the Chiefs are on a bye.

  • Posted: 11/11/2018 6:14pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 16 times for 71 yards in the Week 10 game against the Arizona Cardinals and he added two receptions for 25 yards.

    Huddle Up: This was the first time since Week 1 on the road against the L.A. Chargers that Hunt failed to find the end zone either on the ground or through the air. It was a mediocre performance by his standards. He should rebound nicely against a surprisingly giving Rams defense in Mexico City next Monday night.

  • Posted: 11/4/2018 3:40pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt registered 17 rushes for 91 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 9 win against the Cleveland Browns and he scored a 50-yard touchdown on a catch, too.

    Huddle Up: Hunt, who played his college ball at Toledo and is from nearby Elyria, OH, dominated his hometown team. After a slow start by his 2017 standards, Hunt has totaled seven rushing touchdowns and five receiving scores over his past seven outings. The Chiefs host the Cardinals in Week 10.

  • Posted: 11/2/2018 2:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) practiced in full for a third straight day on Friday, Nov. 2 and he is off the injury report ahead of the Week 9 game with the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Hunt will be looking to gouge the NFL's 28th-ranked rush defense, as the Browns allow 138.9 yards per game on the ground while tied for the NFL lead with 12 rushing touchdowns allowed.

  • Posted: 11/1/2018 3:15pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has received at least 10 carries in every game this season and has been more involved in the passing game over the last few weeks. He should be a No. 1 running back in all leagues as long as he is healthy.

  • Posted: 10/31/2018 2:05pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Oct. 31.

    Huddle Up: Perhaps Hunt tweaked his knee hurtling tacklers and rolling into the end zone. That was impressive. He appears to be just fine for the Week 9 game against the Browns, a team gashed by James Conner for big fantasy production last week.

  • Posted: 10/28/2018 3:01pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 16 times for 50 yards in the Week 8 game against the Denver Broncos and he added five receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Hunt, the league's rushing leader in 2017, has just one 100-yard rushing game (and one 100-yard receiving game). Patrick Mahomes and the pass game has limited Hunt's rushing somewhat. Still, his game log is littered with touchdowns, scoring five times on the ground and five times through the air. He remains a legit No. 1 fantasy back heading into Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns, who were gouged by Pittsburgh's James Conner for big numbers on Sunday.

  • Posted: 10/27/2018 7:09pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt faces the Denver Broncos in Week 8, and the Broncos have allowed the second most rushing yards per game and the most yards per carry of any team in the NFL.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has been on a tear recently, topping 140 yards from scrimmage in three of the last four games and re-establishing himself as an elite fantasy option. Look for the trend to continue against vulnerable Denver run defense.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 9:38pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt ran 15 times for 86 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 versus the Cincinnati Bengals. Hunt also caught five of his six targets for 55 yards and two more scores.

    Huddle Up: Hunt was spectacular in this one, consistently showing off his impressive combination of balance and power. There were at least three occasions in which a Cincinnati defender had him squared up for a negative play and the second-year back found a way to break the Bengals' will. Hunt has also been much more active in the passing game over the last two weeks, making him an elite fantasy play once again. That is exactly where he will be in Week 8 against the Denver Broncos.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 9:50pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 10 times for 80 yards and caught five of his six targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: For perspective, Hunt tallied five catches on nine targets for 66 yards over his first five games combined. The second-year back did the bulk of his damage early in third quarter when Patrick Mahomes bought some time and Hunt got past his defender for a 67-yard connection. Head coach Andy Reid's usage of his top back has been curious at times this season, but Hunt still finds himself as the overall RB8 after six games. Kill remain firmly in the RB1 discussion in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 7:07pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 22 times for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Hunt didn't seem to be terribly affected by the No. 1 defense of the Jaguars. Sure, he was limited to 4.0 yards per carry, but he found the end zone and was able to rip off a 24-yard run in the game. He got off to a bit of a slow start, but he is starting to click again. He is a legit low-end RB1 in all fantasy leagues. The Chiefs play the Patriots on Sunday night in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/1/2018 8:24pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 19 times for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos on Monday, Oct. 1, and he added three grabs for 54 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: It was Hunt's finest performance of the season, and one fantasy owners expected from the NFL's leading rusher from 2017. He had season highs across the board with 19 carries, 121 yards, 6.4 yards per rush, three receptions and 54 receiving yards. He'll face another tough defense in Week 5 against the Jaguars.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 3:31pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Hunt's average of just 2.4 yards per rush isn't going to make fantasy owners very happy, but the two scores cushion the blow a bit. He exploded on the scene last season, but these were his first scores of the year and he has been held to 50 or fewer total yards from scrimmage in two of his three outings so far. Treat him more as a RB2 in fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 3:20pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 75 yards in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers while adding a catch for five yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Hunt started out slowly last week against the Chargers, but this was more like it for fantasy owners. He still has just 124 rushing yards on 34 attempts, an average of 3.6 yards. Hunt remains a RB1 based on his production last season, but the emergence of Patrick Mahomes under center is cutting down Hunt's fantasy value a bit. The Chiefs host the 49ers in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 7:18pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 16 times for just 49 yards in the Week 1 win against the Los Angeles Chargers and he had no catches on only one target.

    Huddle Up: Hunt disappointed his fantasy owners, as the Bolts did a good job mostly bottling him up. Kansas City didn't press too hard to run the ball, as they were having mega success in the pass game. He faces another difficult matchup on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2, but he remains a fantasy stud. Be patient.

  • Posted: 9/8/2018 6:35pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt faces the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1, and last year, Hunt rushed for a combined 327 yards in two meetings with the Chargers, topping 150 rushing yards in both games.

    Huddle Up: Hunt should be a fixture of season-long lineups all year, but after he torched the Chargers twice last year, you may also want to build around Hunt in DFS contests in the opener.

  • Posted: 8/25/2018 1:16pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt ran three times for seven yards in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Chicago Bears while adding a 19-yard touchdown on his only catch and target.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs know what Hunt is capable of doing and likely wanted to get him out of the game as quickly as possible to avoid disaster heading into the regular season. Hunt is a bona fide RB1 across all fantasy formats heading into 2018.

  • Posted: 8/1/2018 6:17pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 1.

    Huddle Up: Hunt was limited for several practices because of a hamstring injury but should be fine moving forward. He was one of the better running backs in the league in 2017 and will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Chiefs. He likely will be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 7/28/2018 11:23am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) was limited to individual drills during practice Saturday, July 28. Head coach Andy Reid said the team is easing Hunt back into practice because he does not want Hunt to suffer a setback.

    Huddle Up: It is not known how long Hunt will be limited, but he has plenty of time to recover before the start of the season. He is coming off a fantastic rookie season and will continue to be one of the better running backs in the NFL. He likely will be off the board early during fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 7/27/2018 5:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) has been limited during the early part of training camp because the team is easing him back into practice.

    Huddle Up: Hunt probably will be a full participant in practice later in camp but will be fine for the start of the season. He was one of the top running backs in the league last season and will continue to receive a lot of touches. He should be a No. 1 fantasy back in all leagues.
