Kareem Hunt To Play In Week 3

Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said that newly signed running back Kareem Hunt is "going to play" in his season debut in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans. However, how much Hunt actually plays on Sunday will be determined. The 28-year-old was a popular waiver-wire pickup this week after Nick Chubb went down with a gruesome season-ending knee injury on Monday night. It's unknown what kind of shape Hunt is actually in, but all signs point to the Browns leaning on Jerome Ford as their lead back moving forward. If anything, Hunt will merely be a thorn in Ford's side as he steals valuable touches away, mainly in obvious passing situations on third downs. We wouldn't recommend using Hunt right away as a flex option in PPR leagues in his first game in 2023.

Kareem Hunt Signs With The Browns

The Cleveland Browns have signed running back Kareem Hunt to a one-year, $4 million contract. Hunt is no stranger to Cleveland as the 28-year-old spent the previous four seasons with the Browns before the team let him hit free agency last offseason. Even though he was unable to sign on with another team, he fits in well in Cleveland due to his familiarity with the offense. In the wake of Nick Chubb's (knee) season-ending injury, head coach Kevin Stefanski believes Jerome Ford will lead the backfield so Hunt will likely take on a secondary role. It could take some time for Hunt to get back into game shape but he could be valuable in the passing game. He's totaled 211 catches for 1806 yards (8.6 YPC) over his six-year career between the Chiefs and the Browns. Hunt should be rostered in all 12-team formats for now but fantasy managers should take a wait-and-see approach before inserting him into their starting lineups so they can gauge his usage.

Kareem Hunt Visiting With Browns

Free-agent running back Kareem Hunt is visiting with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday, according to a source. It doesn't come as much of a surprise after Nick Chubb suffered a gruesome season-ending knee injury in the Monday night loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2. Hunt has plenty of familiarity with the Browns, too, playing the last four seasons in Cleveland. Fantasy managers may be tempted to run out to the waiver wire and pick up Hunt, but head coach Kevin Stefanski said Jerome Ford will be the team's featured back for now after eclipsing 100 yards rushing when he replaced Chubb on Monday night. However, Hunt could steal valuable touches from Ford eventually if the Browns decide to reunite with the 28-year-old.

Kareem Hunt Weighing His Playing Options

Free agent running back Kareem Hunt has had four offers from different teams over the past few weeks but is waiting for the right one before committing to a team. One of the teams he visited over the summer was the Minnesota Vikings, who recently brought in running back Myles Gaskin. The 28-year-old also previously met with the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts. The former third-round pick could make an impact, should he sign with the right team. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on this situation as the start of the season nears.
