As we gear up to the start of the NFL season, Football Absurdity is going to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of every notable player that will be available in fantasy football drafts. Everyone is always saying, “I’d rather have Kareem Hunt at his draft position than Nick Chubb at his.” But do we even want Kareem Hunt at his current ADP? Also, I have way too many eggs in my house and it is really steaming me off!

2021 Kareem Hunt Fantasy Football Overview:
Last year, Kareem Hunt gave fantasy managers huge returns. He finished as RB10 after being drafted for way less. He also propelled managers deep into their fantasy football playoffs with week 14 lines of 6-33-1 rushing and 7-77-1 passing.
Fun fact: Hunt finished with 1,148 all-purpose yards, last year, which is the exact number of duck eggs I currently have. It sucks! I didn’t want all these dang eggs in the first place and now I can’t get rid of them! My life is literally walking on eggshells. People who should not be walking on eggshells are managers who believe in Hunt’s 2021 value: A top-10 2020 RB whose situation is virtually unchanged going for RB3 value is nuts!
2021 Kareem Hunt Fantasy Football Draft Strategy:
Based on our overview, you can infer that we think Hunt is a steal. Heck, last year I bid $38 for him in my 14-team auction (the penalty of having publicly available auction rankings). I still got more value than the ridiculously high amount I paid for him. In 2021 he will again fail to disappoint. Unlike having to work from home which I found greatly disappointing because it caused flocks of ducks to converge all over my dang yard!
Seriously, his offense is, like, almost 100% the same. Plus, the Browns had great success leaning hard on their running game and even won a playoff. There are zero reasons for the Browns to shift away from their run-heavy, two-headed monster scheme.
Best Case Scenario:
You get Kareem Hunt in the 5th or for low $20s. Even a top 24 finish gives you more bang than you bucked. You do not have hundreds of ducks staking out your yard all day.
Worst Case Scenario:
You reach a bit for Kareem Hunt, say fourth round or mid-$20s. He does not do as well as last year. Still, he finishes top 24 but he doesn’t single-handedly win your league like he did mine. You discover the agony of having to work from home when your job is at a breadcrumb factory.
