Kareem Hunt, RB, Cleveland Browns
Hunt had seven carries for 46 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, while adding five catches for 19 yards and a touchdown. He has now scored in back-to-back games, with at least five receptions in three of four games since coming back from suspension. Nick Chubb had 16 carries in the game Sunday, but there is clearly room for Hunt to be a factor (more than 11 fantasy points; full-point PPR, in all four games he’s played).
Cleveland’s next two opponents, the Cincinnati Bengals and Arizona Cardinals, entered Week 13 allowing the sixth-most and 10th-most fantasy points to running backs respectively this season (Yahoo! 0.5-point PPR scoring). As it pertains to Hunt the Cardinals entered Week 13 allowing the sixth-most receptions per game and the fourth-most receiving yards per game to running backs, while the Bengals came into the week in the bottom-12 in receiving yards allowed to the position.
Hunt looks like a certified RB2 in PPR leagues over the next two weeks. He should be owned in all leagues by now, but he’s not.
