Fantasy Football: Predicting the 2020 season for Kareem Hunt

Kareem Hunt contributed immediately upon playing for the Browns last year, but what's his full season fantasy outlook for 2020?

It feels like a long time ago, but it was only 2017 when Kareem Hunt led the league in rushing (1,327 yards) as a rookie with the Kansas City Chiefs. From there things went off the rails, as the Chiefs cut ties during the 2018 season after a troubling off-field incident surfaced.

Hunt landed with the Cleveland Browns, and served an eight-game suspension to start last season. In eight games, he had 43 carries for 179 yards and two touchdowns along with 37 receptions (on 44 targets) for 285 yards and one touchdown.

Nick Chubb was and still is clearly the lead back for Cleveland. He finished second in the league in rushing last year (1,494 yards), while adding 36 catches. But in the eight games Hunt played, he had just 11 catches.

But Hunt clearly had a role. He played at least 54 percent of the snaps in all eight games he played (over 60 percent in four of the last five), while averaging 5.5 targets per game.

Over a full season with the Browns, what could Hunt deliver for fantasy owners in 2020?
