Chiefs | Kareem Hunt in line for more targets?

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 20:52:22 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday, Feb. 28, that "we probably need to expand on" RB Kareem Hunt's role in the passing game for next season.

Fantasy Tip: Hunt is pretty much already locked in as an RB1 going into his second NFL campaign, but an increased presence in the club's air attack would only boost his stock even further. He was already a regular part of the passing game, drawing four targets per game in 2017, but it appears there's going to be even more work for the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year runner-up, who also rushed for 1,327 yards and eight scores this past year.

Chiefs | Kareem Hunt a master of elusiveness

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 20:10:10 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt led the NFL - among players who recorded at least 175 carries - with 4.63 yards gained after defenders closed within one yard of him in 2017, according to Next Gen Stats.

Fantasy Tip: This should come as no surprise to any of his owners, as Hunt routinely used exceptional balance and power to keep his feet after he got past the first level of defenders. Spencer Ware's return in 2018 could make a repeat of his league-leading rushing campaign unlikely, but Hunt has all the makings of being the next great Andy Reid running back.

NFL | Sony Michel can do it all

Sun, 28 Jan 2018 20:52:19 -0800

Georgia RB Sony Michel reminds Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com of Kansas City RB Kareem Hunt, and Jeremiah believes Michel is capable of making a similar impact in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: It will take the perfect situation for Michel to approach Hunt's rookie numbers, but he has all the tools to be an every-down back. At the very least, Michel can be targeted early in rookie drafts.

Chiefs | Kareem Hunt in rare company

Mon, 25 Dec 2017 14:10:23 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt is just the 10th running back in NFL history to achieve at least 1,000 rushing yards, 400 receiving yards and 10 total touchdowns in his first season. He's the first rookie running back to accomplish the feat since Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin in 2012.

Fantasy Tip: Hunt started off hot and cooled down a little bit, but his rookie campaign can't go unnoticed. He's in RB1 territory heading into 2018 with added value in PPR leagues. As long as he's healthy he can be drafted in the first round of fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Hunt hit the rookie wall, coinciding with the team's slide during the middle of the season. He has caught a second wind, running 78 times for 360 yards and at least one touchdown in each of the past three games while posting 14 runs for 88 yards and another score. He has been a big reason why a lot of people will win championship money or trophies this week.

Chiefs | Kareem Hunt goes over 200 yards

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 20:56:30 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt ran 24 times for 155 yards and a touchdown and caught seven passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in a 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers Saturday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Hunt busted out of his slump with a 100-yard effort in Week 14, and he kept the momentum going. It seems like Kansas City has remembered that feeding Hunt results in good things for the offense, and he is back to his RB1 ways at the perfect time for fantasy owners.
