  • Kareem Hunt Participates In Team Drills On Sunday

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt was spotted doing 11-on-11 work during Sunday's practice. The veteran didn't participate in team drills over the last few days and recently requested a trade. However, with the Browns denying the demand, it appears Hunt has already raised the white flag. Although the 27-year-old is listed behind Nick Chubb on the depth chart, a spot he's very familiar with, he has historically been a relatively reliable PPR option due to his pass-catching ability. Still, he's dealt with injuries and off-the-field issues over the years, which remain concerns for fantasy managers heading into the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Kareem Hunt Has Trade Request Denied

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt shocked many when he decided to request a trade from the organization. He started skipping team drills in camp while he seeks a new contract. The organization has responded by fining Hunt and declining his request for a trade. This ultimately might backfire on Hunt since the Browns do have depth at the running back position. Nick Chubb is a stud and D'Ernest Johnson has proven himself to be a capable option. The Browns would likely move Hunt if the team received real assets in return. However, it seems unlikely that the Browns are going to move Hunt just because he requested a new deal.

  • Kareem Hunt Asks For A Trade

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt, who is seeking a new contract as he heads into the final year of his current two-year, $13.25 million deal, has requested a trade. However, the Browns have already told him they won't trade him. Hunt hasn't taken part in team drills at training camp in the last two days as he "holds in" for a new deal. The 27-year-old only played in eight games last year due to an injury, but he rushed for 841 yards and six touchdowns on 198 carries and caught 38 passes for 304 yards and five more scores in 2020. Hunt doesn't have much leverage as he asks for a new deal while also taking part in individual drills this summer. If he stays in Cleveland for the 2022 season, he'll be an RB3/flex option with more upside in PPR leagues while working behind Nick Chubb.

  • Kareem Hunt Not Participating In Team Drills

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt will not participate in team drills. The veteran is determined to receive an extension and has reiterated multiple times he will only perform individual sessions until then. Hunt's agent was reportedly at the Browns' facility recently for negotiations, although it's unknown how close the sides are to an agreement. The 27-year-old would like to remain in Cleveland. However, a trade also hasn't been ruled out. Nevertheless, despite being involved in a timeshare with Nick Chubb, Hunt has been a potent PPR fantasy producer over the years when available. He's battles injuries and off-the-field issues. Yet, no matter where he suits up this season, he should continue to be a reliable fantasy option as long as he stays healthy.

  • Kareem Hunt At Full Health While Seeking Contract

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt struggled with injuries last season, limiting him to only eight games played. While still searching for a contract extension in an effort to remain a member of the Browns organization, it's good to know that health is no longer a concern for Hunt, who says "he feels 100%." Regardless of who ultimately ends up behind center, there are 181 vacated targets with minimal proven receiving options on the roster, creating a real opportunity for Hunt. After finishing as the RB10 in 2020 and RB8 in the first six games last season, Hunt has demonstrated his ability to produce and will again be a top-24 running back this year if he can stay healthy.

  • Kareem Hunt Searching For Contract Extension

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt hopes to secure an extension with the club. He's entering the final year of his current deal, and while he has acknowledged that there have been discussions between both parties, nothing has come of it. Despite losing touches to Nick Chubb over the years, Hunt is considered by many to be the best backup in the league. He had his most productive season in Cleveland in 2020, where he had 841 rushing yards, 304 receiving yards, and 11 total touchdowns. However, the 26-year-old spent a significant portion of the 2021-22 campaign on the shelf due to injury. Nonetheless, if Hunt remains healthy, he has an excellent chance to see a substantial uptick in production come September, regardless of how negotiations with the franchise pan out.

  • Kareem Hunt Firmly In Browns Plans

    Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt is very much in the team's plans for the 2022 season despite a surplus of running backs on the roster. Hunt is viewed as a valuable member of the offense while heading into the final year of his contract at a maximum of $6.25 million. The two sides haven't engaged in contract-extension talks, but he isn't in jeopardy of being the odd man out in the RB room. The offense could feature more of Hunt and Nick Chubb on the field together. The 26-year-old's fantasy stock will probably be down because he played in only eight games due to injury while rushing for 386 yards and five touchdowns on 78 carries. He also had 22 catches for 174 yards. In an offense that should be much more explosive with quarterback Deshaun Watson running the show, a healthy Hunt will still have plenty of value, mostly in PPR leagues.
