Jason Huntley
22-Year-Old Running BackRB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Despite already having Kerryon Johnson and Bo Scarbrough on hand, Detroit wasn't done adding to its backfield after drafting D'Andre Swift in the second round of this spring's draft. Ultimately taking Huntley in the fifth, the Lions managed to add someone with a completely different skill set than his new counterparts, and it's possible he may have a role in the offense right away. At 5-8, 190 with 4.4 speed, the New Mexico State product adds a uniquely explosive element to the run game, and there are whispers that the Lions could use him like they did J.D. McKissic last year. McKissic was only sharing the load with, at most, Johnson and Scarbrough, and Huntley arguably will have the best running back prospect in the draft added to the fold. While he could certainly make a name for himself on gadget plays, Huntley probably won't see enough snaps to warrant fantasy consideration in most formats. Read Past Outlooks
