A Breakout Year!!

Look for Justin Hunter, wide receiver for the Tennessee Titans, to have a breakout season in 2014. Hunter has great length, speed, leaping ability, and terrific hands. Hunter was a former wide receiver at the University of Tennessee. This guy is very smart on the field and knows what to look for in defenses and exploit those weaknesses.

Justin Hunter made an impact when he was a wide receiver at the University of Tennessee. Hunter caught 106 receptions for 1,812 yards and 18 touchdowns. His freshman season he caught 16 receptions for 415 yards and 7 touchdowns. He averaged 25.7 yards per catch. His sophomore season was cut short by an ACL tear week 3 vs Florida. He still managed 17 receptions for 314 yards and 2 touchdowns. However, he returned better than ever his junior season when he caught an astonishing 73 receptions for 1,083 yards and 9 touchdowns, pretty good for someone coming off an ACL injury.

Hunter is 6’4″ and 203 pounds. He uses his big body and leaping ability to snag passes out of the air. He caught 18 passes for 354 yards and 4 touchdowns in the little playing time he had during his rookie year. He averaged 19.7 yards per catch, which is pretty impressive if you ask me. He showed promise after his first two NFL catches were for touchdowns.

Justin Hunter can also make acrobatic catches as he did his rookie season:

He has also made game winning catches in his short-lived career:

This is why I believe Justin Hunter will have himself a breakout season in 2014, his second NFL season. He’s gonna add experience, muscles, and weight to his tall body. Keep an eye out for Justin Hunter all you fantasy football fans like myself. My prediction for Justin Hunter next season, if he’s injury free and his playing time picks up, is 67 catches for 1,127 yards and 7 touchdowns.
