Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 17 vs NYJ (2 / 1 / 64 / 0 rec)
Justin Hunter had only one catch but it was the biggest one of the day. While running down the field, the corner covering him tripped; Cardale Jones hit Hunter for 64 yards. Hunter hasn't done much this season and this catch should not be indicative of further success. He is a free agent next season.
2016 Week 15 vs CLE (3 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Justin Hunter continued his trend of not doing much. He did receive an endzone target but it was a fade far overthrown.
2016 Week 13 vs OAK (4 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)
Justin Hunter was able to snatch a tipped ball out of the air on his second target for a big 22 yard gain. However, he was not able to catch any of his other targets. Hunter was unable to get space from his defender throughout the game. Hunter was the 3rd WR target and will drop further if Robert Woods comes back.
2016 Week 12 vs JAX (1 / 1 / 16 / 1 rec)
Justin Hunter only had one target but he did great with it. As Hunter was being covered tight by two defenders entering the endzone, Tyrod Taylor had to throw a high ball and hope his receiver could make a play. Hunter did just that and climbed the ladder for a jumping TD catch. In a Bills' passing offense that is reliant on making the big play at the right time, Hunter fulfilled his role.
2016 Week 9 vs SEA (1 / 1 / 5 / 1 rec)
Justin Hunter had one target all day and it happened to be the Bills only passing TD. Hunter was wide open in the endzone, the LB did not even bother to cover him.
2016 Week 8 vs NE (5 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Justin Hunter had a good amount of targets but poor throws doomed his stat line. He did manage to draw a defensive pass interference while almost catching the ball with one hand. Hunter is another bit player in this offense.
2016 Week 7 vs MIA (4 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
With Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, and now Marquise Goodwin injured, Justin Hunter is now the Bills go-to WR. He had a few endzone targets against the Dolphins but could not get away from the defender in either situation. Hunter has not stood out in the 3 games that he has played with the Bills.
2016 Week 6 vs SF (2 / 1 / 30 / 1 rec)
Justin Hunter only had one reception but it was good enough for Tyrod Taylor's first TD pass of the game. Taylor dropped the ball perfectly for Hunter who was a step ahead of his defender in the endzone. Hunter is not heavily involved in this offense but he made it count when he needed to.
2016 Week 5 vs LA (1 / 1 / 4 / 1 rec)
Justin Hunter was claimed off waivers a week before the game and debuted for the Bills against the Rams. His only target was in the endzone on a play in which Tyrod Taylor scrambled long enough to draw the defenders away. This play resulted in a TD catch but it was not drawn up to get Hunter the ball. With a very poor WR corps, Hunter has a chance to push through the ranks.
Latest NewsSteelers | Justin Hunter agrees with Steelers (Wed Mar 15, 11:05 AM) - Free-agent WR Justin Hunter (Bills) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday, March 15. Our View: Hunter is a great athlete who can fly down the field and adjust to poorly thrown passes. He's never really flourished in the NFL, but Hunter is big enough and athletic enough to work as a red-zone threat at least in the high-powered Steelers offense.

Our View: Hunter has very good physical skill, but he's failed to play up to his potential in multiple NFL stops. At most, he could be a red-zone option and reserve receiver for a team like the Steelers.

Our View: Hunter has always been a super athletic WR, but in his two stops (Titans, Dolphins, Bills) around the NFL he's never really flourished.
