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. (May 5)

'I think so, without a doubt,' Kelce said Saturday, June 15, when asked if he believes the Browns are getting the best version of Hunt. '... I think you guys are getting an unbelievable athlete, somebody who can change the game with one or two carries, one or two touches and really give you a chance to win.'
