Justin Hunter has been on the rise since he began his NFL career last season. Is it any wonder that all eyes are on him this coming year?
As a rookie, Hunter racked up 109 yards and a touchdown, which was notable considering he wasn’t always a starting wide receiver. However, you can be sure that Hunter will do more damage this season on the field with No. 1 wideout Kenny Britt gone from the roster.

Along with Kendall Wright, Hunter has an enormous amount of potential. Assuming quarterback Jake Locker looks his way, he could quickly become a fantasy football favorite as well. It’s worth keeping in mind that Hunter violated team rules last season, which resulted in a short suspension. We’ll have to wait and see if his bad behavior casts a shadow on his achievements on the field.
Hunter was targeted 42 times last season. While he may not receive as many looks as Wright this year, it’s hard to overlook his talent and his knack for reaching the end zone.
