Justin Hunter caught his lone target for a 16-yard touchdown in the Bills' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.
The touchdown proved to be the game winner for the Bills, who came out on top 28-21. As Sammy Watkins has now returned, none of Buffalo's complementary pass catchers are worthy of fantasy consideration regardless of matchups. Nov 27 - 4:29 PM

Date:

Justin Hunter (groin) is questionable for Week 11 against the Bengals.

Hunter was added to the injury report on Friday. Late-week additions are never good. Hunter has played minimal snaps, but he has become a red-zone factor for Buffalo with three touchdowns on six catches.
Nov 18 - 12:16 PM

Justin Hunter caught his lone target for a five-yard touchdown in the Bills' Week 9 loss to the Seahawks.

Hunter sat down at the goal line in the middle of the Seahawks' zone defense in the first quarter and caught a wide-open touchdown. Other than that, he was a non-factor. Hunter now has three TDs on six catches.
Nov 8 - 12:53 AM

Justin Hunter corralled just one-of-five targets for seven yards Sunday in the Bills' Week 8 loss to the Patriots.

This game set up well for Hunter, but as usual, he fell flat. Even with Buffalo forced to throw it in the second half, Hunter was nonexistent. Fantasy owners can forget about him against the Seahawks in Week 9.
Oct 30 - 5:42 PM

Justin Hunter caught 2-of-4 targets for 25 yards in the Bills' Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

Hunter played all but four offensive snaps with Robert Woods (foot) hurt, but the increase in playing time didn't lead to any extra production. He was still no more than the No. 3 pass-game option. Hunter isn't a fantasy play.
Oct 23 - 6:21 PM

Justin Hunter will be the Bills' starting receiver opposite Marquise Goodwin Sunday at Miami.

Robert Woods (foot) isn't going to play. Hunter has caught a touchdown in back-to-back weeks and played a season-high 60% of the snaps in last week's win over San Francisco. He is worth a look as a dart-throw play for fantasy owners in wide receiver binds.
Oct 23 - 8:57 AM

Justin Hunter caught 1-of-2 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Buffalo's Week 6 win over the 49ers.

Hunter's 30-yard score was a thing of beauty, as he took advantage of a Tyrod Taylor pump fake to undress two 49ers safeties. The Bills talked about getting Hunter more involved in the offense, but 2-3 weekly targets are likely to remain his ceiling.
Oct 16 - 5:45 PM

Asked if Justin Hunter could be in for a bigger role, Bills coach Rex Ryan said he has been dropping balls in practice.

In other words, no. With Sammy Watkins sidelined, the Bills have the worst receiver corps in the league, but Hunter has drawn only one target since arriving. It went for a touchdown, but it's clear the Bills don't envision him as an important piece. For what it's worth, OC Anthony Lynn contradicted his head coach, saying he'd like to get Hunter more involved.
Oct 13 - 1:45 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan said Justin Hunter could play this week.

Hunter was claimed off waivers from the Dolphins last week. "It’s a possibility we’ll see him this Sunday," said Ryan. "I hope he can help us because I’d like to get that big body out there, that kind of size and speed that he has. I think that can really help us, particularly in the red zone." Hunter has been a massive disappointment throughout his career, but the Bills have basically nobody behind Robert Woods. He should earn a role at some point.
Oct 4 - 9:59 AM

Bills claimed WR Justin Hunter off waivers from Miami.

It's a low risk flyer for the WR-needy Bills. Hunter was buried on Miami's depth chart, but falls in a good spot with Buffalo. He'll push for a role behind Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin.
Sep 30 - 5:25 PM

Dolphins waived WR Justin Hunter.

Hunter hasn't been active since Week 1. He wasn't needed with DeVante Parker healthy and Miami dealing with multiple injuries. Hunter is likely to clear waivers, but should draw interest as a No. 5 wideout.
Sep 28 - 6:20 PM

Justin Hunter has agreed to a paycut.

His salary was reduced from $1.1 million to $675K. The restructure should give him some job security. Hunter is Miami's No. 5 wideout.
Sep 14 - 5:16 PM

Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen said Justin Hunter "doesn't know enough" to fill DeVante Parker's role.

Parker (hamstrings) probably won't play in Sunday's opener at Seattle. Hunter is still learning the Dolphins' playbook after being claimed off waivers on Sunday and will likely see limited Week 1 snaps. Rookie Leonte Carroo may be forced into third receiver duty behind Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills.
Sep 6 - 12:36 PM

Dolphins claimed WR Justin Hunter off waivers from the Titans.

It's not a great landing spot for the former second-rounder, as he's still buried on the depth chart behind at least Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker. But Parker (hamstring) can't ever seem to stay healthy, and rookie Leonte Carroo is having struggles year one in the NFL. Hunter is unlikely to make much of an impact and can still be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Sep 4 - 12:51 PM

Titans waived WR Justin Hunter.

Hunter was the 34th pick in the 2013 draft after ex-GM Ruston Webster executed a trade up with the 49ers to nab him. He showed some early-career promise in 2013 and 2014, catching 46 balls for 852 yards (18.52 YPR) and seven touchdowns, but the wheels came falling off when he got hurt at the end of the 2014 season and failed to take hold of a starting job in 2015. Hunter has an intriguing blend of size and speed at 6'4/203, but he's yet to seem to get "it." It wouldn't be a shock to see another team claim him off waivers based on perceived upside.
