2018 Fantasy Outlook
Hughes, Minnesota's 2018 first-round draft pick, might not be a household name after playing for UCF, but that UCF defense was very tough in 2017, and Hughes was arguably its best player along with Shaquem Griffin. Hughes (5-foot-10, 189 pounds) was a physical presence in that pass defense, which allowed a completion percentage of just 55.4 while allowing 24 touchdowns versus 20 interceptions. Hughes intercepted four of those passes, returning one for a touchdown, in addition to scoring twice on kick returns and once on a punt return. Hughes should provide Minnesota with an immediate slot corner and returner upgrade, and in the long term he could move outside if Trae Waynes falters. Read Past Outlooks

Return timeline remains unclear

Knee - ACL
December 28, 2018
Hughes (knee) began walking in early December but has no official recovery timeline.
Hughes underwent surgery to repair a torn left ACL on Oct. 23 and has been in rehab since. The 21-year-old hasn't suffered any setbacks, but he declined to offer a recovery timeframe for the time being. The rookie first-round pick will hopefully be ready around the start of the 2019 season, but more information should become available as he continues his rehab process.
