Kareem Hunt returns from suspension and becomes a PPR flex play
With four teams on a bye in Week 11, fantasy football owners are getting close to the end of the bye weeks, but this week still requires some planning as some solid players are out this week. One guy who did well in Week 10 that should be looked at is Randall Cobb. Back in his Green Bay days (pre-injury), he was a PPR monster. In Dallas, he hasn't been as good, but he has seen eight targets in each of the past two games. He's caught six of them each week. In Week 9, he only managed 35 yards on those, but in Week 10, he had 106 yards and a touchdown. He's ranked No. 109 this week or WR54. That may sound low, but he is someone that can be considered for a flex spot.
A running back flex option may be Kareem Hunt. He's returned from suspension, and as long as the Cleveland Browns keep throwing him the ball, he has flex value in PPR leagues. In his first game, he had nine targets. He caught seven for 44 yards. His role in the running game isn't as established (that's Nick Chubb's wheelhouse), but if Hunt sees volume as a receiver, he'll be in the fantasy flex consideration. He's ranked No. 68 in the flex rankings or RB34. In PPR leagues, he should be started.
Teams on bye: Green Bay, New York Giants, Seattle, Tennessee
