Past Fantasy Outlooks
The departure of David Fluellen to the NFL leaves a huge gap in the Toledo offense. Fluellen totaled 2,619 rushing yards the last two years, running for 23 touchdowns. Hunt (5-11, 200) looks like the best candidate to replace Fluellen as Toledo's feature back in 2014. He impressed last year, rushing for 789 yards (6.3 YPC) and six touchdowns in the final six weeks of the season. That pace this season would give Hunt 1,578 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground alone. The only concern is the possibility of Damion Jones-Moore and Marc Remy stealing carries, but that's not a serious worry because Hunt was so much more prominent in the offense last year.
Hunt is likely to be overvalued this season. Great as he is, his 8.0 yards per carry is not sustainable, which means he'll need more attempts if he's to reach 1,600 yards in consecutive years. That seems unlikely, though, because Toledo discovered two very good backups in Terry Swanson and Damion Jones-Moore when Hunt missed more than three games with an ankle injury last season. Swanson and DJM combined for 1,192 yards (6.2 YPC) and 12 touchdowns, which will allow Toledo to lighten Hunt's workload this season to keep him healthy. Also, Hunt has yet to make an impact as a receiver, so he can't afford to lose much rushing production.
Once one of the nation's most elite fantasy running backs, a deep surrounding backfield has since reduced Hunt's fantasy value to merely 'very good.' The main reason for that is the presence of fellow running back Terry Swanson, who clearly would be an elite fantasy back in his own right if he could secure a workhorse role. Alas, with Hunt and Swanson both around, the upside of either will be limited to some extent. With that said, Hunt still is clearly one of the best fantasy backs in his conference after running for 973 yards and 12 touchdowns (5.5 YPC) in nine games last year.
