Kareem Hunt RB Cleveland Browns
For me, this guy could’ve been at one the last two years. The upside for him is incredible at his current ADP. Hunt ranked top-10 in fantasy points, even with Nick Chubb playing 12 games in 2020. When Chubb is out, Hunt is an immediate top-three option at running back for fantasy. Hunt’s ADP is in the fifth round, which gives managers the chance to grab their starters before going and getting him. Either way, with Chubb in or out of the lineup Hunt is a solid fantasy option. Chubb has had major knee surgery and ran into injury issues last year. That is not to wish or predict bad will on Nick Chubb, but if we are looking at potential fantasy winners, Hunt would be in the mix due to his consistency with Chubb in the lineup and his absolute star when Chubb is out of the lineup. As good as Chubb is, catching the ball out of the backfield is where the Browns turn to Hunt. You can count on him being in passing as well as running downs. When Hunt has a backfield to himself, he is much like Alvin Kamara and Christian McCaffery. Fantasy managers also seem to forget that a two-running back system can exist in fantasy. Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram were both top-10 running backs in the same year.
