Kareem Hunt Sees Five Carries In Week 4

Sunday, October 1, 10:36 PM

Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt carried the ball five times for 12 yards and was not targeted in the passing game in a 28-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4. Hunt has now played in two games for the Browns this season and has seen exactly five carries in each as the backup to Jerome Ford. Cleveland's rushing attack has struggled since Nick Chubb was injured in Week 2, with Ford averaging just 2.3 yards per carry in Weeks 3 and 4, so Hunt could possibly hear his number called more frequently going forward. Hunt will be on bye in Week 5 before he takes on the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.

Cam Akers Could See Decent Role In Vikings Debut

Sunday, October 1, 1:09 PM

Minnesota Vikings running back Cam Akers is making his debut for the team in Week 4 against the Carolina Panthers, and the NFL Network's Tom Pelissero says that we could see a lot of him on Sunday. Alexander Mattison is still the starter, but the Vikings are going to ride the hot hand in the backfield against the Panthers this weekend, especially if Akers shows something and is able to hold onto the football. Akers was acquired from the Los Angeles Rams before Week 3, but he didn't make his debut last weekend in the loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Mattison has had a rough start in 2023, carrying the ball 39 times for 155 yards (4.0 yards per carry). Akers wasn't good at all in the season opener with the Rams, but a change of scenery could do him well and raise his fantasy value if Mattison continues to be mediocre.
