Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections
We weren't surprised, but it was comforting to see the Browns utilize him in a lead back role in their first game without Nick Chubb. They continued to utilize Hunt in a similar manner, just in a heavier volume role. That said, turning his 20 carries into just 72 yards wasn't inspiring and this week's matchup with Pittsburgh will only be harder. Volume matters and his involvement in the pass game may salvage his day anyway, but keep expectations somewhat tempered in this one. We start him but this could be good or it could be bad.
Rushing: 66 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 20 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
How much will the Browns utilize Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb on the field at the same time? That is the question needing answering in order to unlock his expectations for 2020. The coaching staff talking about using two running backs on the field at the same time is not a new thing for summer, but it often doesn't translate when the games start to play. That said, the Browns off-season activity gives weight to what they're saying as the only wide receiver added was 7th round pick Donovan Peoples-Jones. Deploying Hunt out of the slot in three wide receiver sets is certainly an option, but just because he's the RB2 in this offense, it drops him down the board. He's our favorite NFL RB2 by far and if it weren't for Nick Chubb, he'd be one of our top fantasy RB options overall.

Rushing: 470 Yards, 4 TD.
Receiving: 31 Receptions, 237 Yards, 4 TD.
