FANTASY INDEX WEEKLY IS UPDATED

FRIDAY SUPPLEMENT WITH INJURY REPORT AVAILABLE NOW

Kareem Hunt has been with the team less than a week, but Kevin Stefanski indicates he’ll play on Sunday.

Presumably in a limited role; hasn’t practiced with a team since last season. He worked out in August for the Colts and Saints but didn’t sign with either team (either they weren’t impressed by what they saw, or the sides couldn’t agree on compensation). We’re expecting to see Jerome Ford in the starting lineup on Sunday. How the carries shake out in the coming weeks will be dictated by how they perform. (We’re expecting Ford to be their top back, with Hunt getting a share of the work off the bench as their No. 2 guy.) … Browns have ruled out cornerback Greg Newsome.

Similarly, the Vikings added Cam Akers in the middle of week (via a ham sandwich trade). Kevin O’Connell (who coached Akers in Los Angeles) says he doesn’t expect Akers to play this week. Come Week 4, Akers should be spelling Alexander Mattison as their second back. “I see both guys having a role,” O’Connell says. … Vikings this week will play without defensive end Marcus Davenport (ankle).

This report is just a small snippet of the Week 3 edition of Fantasy Index Weekly, part of the In-Season Analyst package. The newsletter includes our player rankings and 20-plus pages of matchup previews, plus stat projections and custom rankings for the games being played this weekend.
