Fantasy Football Outlook: Perhaps his fellow college teammate Cordarrelle Patterson and West Virgina’s Tavon Austin are the only more explosive receivers to come out of college this year. While the 2013 receiver class didn’t have top end options like a few years ago with A.J. Green and Julio Jones came out, this is one of the deeper receiver classes in years.
Hunter has the ability to be a super star in this league but his hands are a concern and he does have an ACL injury in his past. We also need to see more from Jake Locker before we can say Hunter has a quarterback to allow him to play at his full potential.
It’s likely with the addition of Hunter in the second round, the Titans have sent Kenny Britt the message that he won’t be back with the team, coming into a contract season. That said, Britt and last years first-round pick Kendall Wright will start over Hunter in his rookie year.
We should look to Hunter as a worth first-round pick in dynasty rookie drafts but unless an injury happens to either Britt or Wright, Hunter is best left on waiver wires in redraft leagues as the Titans figure to be a run heavy team.
Even if the game scripts change from that mind-set I’m not sure if Locker is capable of giving three receivers notable fantasy value on a weekly basis. By 2014, Hunter should receive buzz as a potential breakout option in fantasy leagues, assuming Britt moves on.
