Chiefs | Kareem Hunt finishes with 40 rushing yards

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 14:23:22 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 40 yards on nine carries against the New York Jets in Week 13. He also caught three passes for 23 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Hunt has been held to 40 yards or less in three of his last four games and has gone nine games without a rushing touchdown. He still has some fantasy value because he is the team's No. 1 running back but may only be a No. 2 fantasy running back or a flex option in most leagues.

Chiefs | Charcandrick West to miss Week 13

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 11:33:03 -0800

Updating a previous report, RB Akeem Hunt will serve as Kareem Hunt's backup in Week 13 instead of Charcandrick West (personal), who will miss the game due to a family matter.

Fantasy Tip: A demotion of West always seemed unlikely, if only because head coach Andy Reid has consistently valued his contributions on third down and two-minute situations. West should return to his normal role in Week 14.

Chiefs | Akeem Hunt to serve as main backup Week 13

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 11:09:50 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Akeem Hunt will serve as Kareem Hunt's backup in Week 13 instead of Charcandrick West, according to the Kansas City Star's Terez A. Paylor.

Fantasy Tip: This news seems to come out of nowhere, as West was stealing more than his fair share of snaps - mostly on third down - from Kareem Hunt. Since the Chiefs aren't activating anyone off the practice squad, it suggests Akeem Hunt has overtaken West for the main backup role. At this point, it's unclear whether or not Akeem Hunt will replace West on third downs or if Kareem Hunt will assume those duties now.

Chiefs | Kareem Hunt struggles in Week 12

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 14:45:56 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 17 yards on 11 carries against the Buffalo Bills. He also caught one pass for nine yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Hunt has been a bit of a disappointment over the last several weeks after his strong start to the season. He has been held to under 50 yards in three of the last four games and has gone eight games without a rushing touchdown. He should be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option next week.

Chiefs | Kareem Hunt has great matchup

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 08:07:49 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 12, which have yielded the highest average fantasy points to the position the last five weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Hunt has cooled off a bit the last five weeks with no touchdowns or 100-yard rushing games. Since the Bills traded Marcell Dareus, their defense has fallen off a cliff. They allowed 32.1 fantasy points per game to backs over the last five weeks, which is nearly seven points more per game than the next team. Opposing backs have 10 rushing scores in five games against them. Hunt is an elite RB1 play this week.

Chiefs | Kareem Hunt rushes for 73 yards

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:19:28 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 73 yards on 18 carries against the New York Giants in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Hunt has been slowing down after the fast start to the season but had a solid performance against the Giants. He will continue to receive a significant amount of touches moving forward and can be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

Chiefs | Kareem Hunt held in check

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 20:06:21 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt finished with a season-low nine carries for 37 yards and caught four passes for 24 yards in a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: The rookie's rushing totals have been lacking in recent weeks, but an upcoming bye week and Week 11 matchup with an imploding New York Giants team should help Hunt return to his RB1 form.

Chiefs | Kareem Hunt's record streak ends on MNF

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 21:35:53 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt was held to a season-low 68 yards from scrimmage in the team's Week 8 victory Monday, Oct. 30, versus the Denver Broncos. He had 46 rushing yards on 22 carries to go with three receptions for 22 yards. It was the first time Hunt did not record 100 total yards after hitting that plateau in an NFL-record seven straight games to begin his career.

Fantasy Tip: Well, Hunt's remarkable streak had to be snapped at some point, and it was halted by a stingy Broncos defense. Nonetheless, Hunt has been one of the league's biggest surprises in 2017 and this particular showing shouldn't suddenly slow down the 22-year-old. He should still be inserted as an RB1 in all leagues.

Chiefs | Kareem Hunt refuses to go down easily

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 09:52:46 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt has forced a NFL-high 37 missed tackles over the first seven games of his career, putting him on pace for 85 according to Pro Football Focus. Over the past two full seasons per PFF, no running back has finished with more than 60 in a season.

Fantasy Tip: Hunt's big plays have fallen off recently as the Chiefs have been without two starting offensive lineman and defenses have adjusted, but the rookie's ability to play through contact has been impressive throughout. With his two offensive linemen - guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and center Mitch Morse - expected back as soon as this week, look for Hunt's fantasy numbers to spike again soon. Keep him in fantasy lineups despite a difficult matchup with the Denver Broncos in Week 8.

Chiefs | Turnovers not an issue for Chiefs

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 13:00:50 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt lost a fumble on the first carry of his career and on the first play of the Chiefs' season. Since then, Kansas City has not turned the ball over.

Fantasy Tip: There are a few words and/or phrases to describe this, one of them is mind-boggling. Alex Smith, Hunt and the rest of the offense have been ultra-secure with the football this season a big reason why they lead the AFC West at 5-2 and have been such big fantasy factors.
