Browns RB Kareem Hunt (groin) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Hunt should be in line for a big workload if he's fully healthy. With Nick Chubb out, Hunt is a fantasy RB1, but the Browns could use D'Ernest Johnson in the Chubb role to keep Hunt fresh.
CLE RB D'Ernest Johnson - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 at Pittsburgh Steelers
D'Ernest Johnson operated as Kareem Hunt's clear backup in Week 5 by notching eight carries and a reception on 22 snaps. Johnson's workload was also inflated by Hunt missing snaps in the fourth quarter due to cramping. Johnson will have a change-of-pace role in the Cleveland offense for however long Nick Chubb is sidelined, but he cannot be started in fantasy with Hunt dominating the backfield work for the time being.
