2018 Fantasy Outlook
Hood was claimed by the Panthers in May afters spending most of 2017 on the Raiders' practice squad. The 22-year-old seems likely to have a similar fate in 2018 with Kenjon Barner and Cameron Artis-Payne fighting for the third running back spot. Read Past Outlooks

Hood (knee) is signing a one-year deal to stay with the Panthers, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Hood was a long shot to make the 53-man roster this past summer, but the Panthers kept him on injured reserve after he suffered a torn ACL in the preseason finale. The timing of Hood's injury should allow him to be ready for the start of training camp, where he'll once again face a difficult path to make the team. The 230-pound bruiser was selected by Oakland in the seventh round of the 2017 draft and spent most of his rookie season on the Raiders' practice squad.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Hood elected to forego his senior season at North Carolina in order to declare for the draft, eventually picked in the seventh round by Oakland at No. 242 overall. The 5-11, 230-pound running back has the size to shed tacklers at the NFL level, but he displayed a mediocre level of speed and athleticism during his pro day. Natural talent alone could keep him afloat if he stays healthy, however, as he rushed for 2,321 yards and 25 touchdowns during the final 25 contests of his collegiate career as a Tar Heel. The Raiders added another bruising back in Marshawn Lynch, whose similar style and build will be perfect for Hood to learn from this season. Second-year running backs Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington will also share touches behind Lynch, so Hood's involvement figures to be severely limited as a rookie, but he could be featured in the coming years when Lynch's production ultimately expires.
