Hunt will be suspended for the first eight games of the 2019 season under the personal conduct policy

Summary

Hunt will miss eight games to start 2019, which will put a damper in his expectations. Another factor working against Hunt is that a dynamic young player is in front of him. Cleveland traded Carlos Hyde in the middle of last season because they believed in Nick Chubb, and the rookie from Georgia made that leap of faith seem like a confident step forward. Even if Hunt were eligible Week 1, Chubb would be given the first chance. But without Hunt, Chubb will own the backfield - especially on early downs. And with an offense featuring Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr, Jarvis Landry, and company, almost any running back would perform well. Expect Hunt's contributions to be either via injury to Chubb or in future seasons. (August 9)

Browns | Dontrell Hilliard ready for bigger workload (Tue Aug 13, 12:35 AM) - Cleveland Browns RB Dontrell Hilliard is in line to begin the season behind RB Nick Chubb on the depth chart following the trade of RB Duke Johnson (Texans), at least until RB Kareem Hunt returns from an eight-game suspension.

Our View: Hilliard is a player the Browns like and he's certainly got the explosive capability to be dangerous in the open field. We'll see him work into the mix behind Chubb.
