Kareem Hunt, RB (CLE)

Single-digit touches in loss

Hunt carried seven times for 22 yards and was not targeted in Sunday's 29-12 loss to the Broncos in Week 12.

This marked the first time in seven games that Hunt (19 snaps) was limited to single-digit touches. In the wake of Jerome Ford's high-ankle injury in Week 7, Hunt's workload increased to the point where head coach Kevin Stefanski described the two backs as his 1A and 1B. It appears now that Ford (51 snaps, nine rushes, seven targets) is the clear No. 1 back, although Hunt's red-zone usage still give him some fantasy appeal. The team's situation at quarterback could also impact how much volume the two RBs see in Week 13. Rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson was removed from Sunday's game with a concussion, and Stefanski doesn't have an immediate answer for who will start against the Rams. If DTR is unavailable, that leaves PJ Walker under center, or possibly Joe Flacco off the practice squad.
