Hunter (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. No Steelers' wideouts are nursing injuries right now, so Hunter likely wouldn't play many offensive snaps anyways. Hunter has just two receptions for 11 yards this season.
Hunter had one catch for six yards in Sunday's 30-9 loss to Jacksonville. Although he played just four offensive snaps, Hunter was targeted three times and has now caught a pass in each of the past two games. There just isn't enough volume for him to produce at the level needed to be fantasy relevant.
Hunter caught one of two targets for five yards in Sunday's 26-9 win against the Ravens. After a costly fumble in Week 3, Eli Rogers was a healthy scratch against Baltimore, allowing Hunter to see his first offensive snaps of the season. That said, the Steelers' game plan centers around Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell, relegating most of the other offensive players to a supporting role. Although any one of them can experience a monster game on occasion, that hasn't been the case for Hunter since 2013, making it virtually impossible to insert him in fantasy lineups.
Hunter (coach's decision) will be active for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' officials site reports. Hunter is a depth wideout with special teams abilities, and head coach Mike Tomlin decided Week 4 would be a good time for him to make his Steelers' debut. To make room in the lineup, Eli Rogers (coach's decision) was listed as inactive. Rogers saw 11 targets through three games, so Hunter may have the same kind of opportunity Sunday, but he shouldn't be considered for fantasy lineups at this time.
Hunter (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, Teresa Varley of Steelers.com reports. Hunter wasn't expected to be anything more than a depth option in the receiving corps if active, so the coach's decision to leave him inactive shouldn't have much fantasy implication. His next chance to play will be in Week 2 against the Vikings.
