Kareem Hunt Expected To Play In Week 4

Wednesday, September 27, 1:29 PM

Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said he expects running back Kareem Hunt (groin, ribs) to play in Week 4 against the division-rival Baltimore Ravens on Sunday despite not practicing on Wednesday. Hunt apparently was banged up in his 2023 debut in Sunday's victory over the Tennessee Titans, but he should be able to return to practice later this week and play in Week 4. The 28-year-old played 20 percent of the team's offensive snaps last week compared to Jerome Ford's 56 percent. He had just five carries for 13 yards and caught two passes for 22 yards. Hunt should be more involved as the season progresses, but he'll still be a shaky flex play in deeper leagues, at best, if he plays in Week 4.

Rachaad White Struggling To Get Downhill

Wednesday, September 27, 9:42 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Rachaad White has been given 58 touches through the team's first three games. 19.3 touches per game for a running back is relatively rare in the modern NFL, but he's failed to produce big fantasy football numbers due to struggles on the offensive line and an inability to get downhill quickly. After the Monday night loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Tampa Bay head coach Todd Bowles was critical of White's play. "He probably had too many cuts trying to make an explosive play -- something out of nothing -- as opposed to taking what they give him," said Bowles. "Given the magnitude of the game, knowing it was going to be one of those types of games, just from an experience standpoint he can get better that way, and he will." The 24-year-old has averaged just 3.1 yards per carry this season but remains on the fantasy radar due to his workload and pass-catching acumen. If his efficiency improves, he could post a handful of RB1 weeks throughout the 2023 campaign.
