  • Hunt rushed 18 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns and failed to come up with his only target in a 38-27 win over the 49ers on Sunday. Hunt capped off a pair of long first-quarter drives with one-yard touchdown runs, giving him his first two scores on the ground this season. However, Hunt was once again far from efficient on a per-touch basis, logging less than three yards per rush and only posting a long run of 10 yards. His absence from the passing game is also concerning, as he's now seen just three targets through three games. Hunt will face the Broncos in a Week 4 Monday night matchup.

  • Chiefs' Kareem Hunt: Snags touchdown pass
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hunt rushed for 75 yards on 18 carries and added a five-yard touchdown catch during Sunday's 42-37 Patrick Mahomes found Hunt in the left flat early in the first quarter. Hunt did the rest, barreling through the Pittsburgh defense for the team's third score of the quarter. Hunt had himself a nice game Sunday, though fans might be concerned that he has not topped 20 touches in a game in either of the Chiefs' first two games after nine such outings in 2017. That might be early-season game planning or maybe a shift in Kansas City to a more big-play passing offense under Mahomes. Either way, Hunt's receiving ability should keep him as one of the league's most valuable backs.

  • Hunt ran 16 times for 49 yards and did not catch a pass in Sunday's 38-28 win over the Chargers. Hunt saw most of the early-down work, with backup Spencer Ware getting some action on third down and in the two-minute drill before halftime. Ware was more impressive on a per play basis, finishing with three carries for 32 yards, but saw 12 fewer touches than Hunt. Unfortunately for Hunt, he missed out on a couple of short touchdowns in the second half, as Patrick Mahomes tossed a pair of one-yard scores. Mahomes ended up throwing for 256 yards and four touchdowns, so that kind of strong quarterback play can only benefit Hunt in the long run. Next up for the Chiefs is a trip to Pittsburgh in Week 2.

  • Hunt and the majority of the starters are expected to sit out Thursday's preseason finale against the Packers, Nate Taylor of The Athletic Kansas City reports. Coming off a spectacular rookie campaign, Hunt had little to prove during the preseason and essentially used it as a tune-up for the regular season that lies ahead. Coach Andy Reid stated in the spring that he wants to get Hunt more involved in the passing game during the 2018 campaign, which could bode well for his prospects in PPR formats if it holds true.

  • Hunt carried three times for seven yards and turned his only target into a 19-yard receiving touchdown during Saturday's preseason game against the Bears. Hunt generated a long gain of just three yards on the ground, but he provided one of the highlights of the first half when he took a dump-off from Patrick Mahomes and raced down the sideline to the pylon. Though he's totaled just 31 yards on 18 carries over the last two weeks, there's little doubt the second-year pro is in line for another big season as the team's bell cow out of the backfield. The receiving touchdown was notable considering the team's stated desire to use him more in in the passing game, and Hunt could be in for an even bigger season if he can top the 53 receptions he posted as a rookie. He'll sit out the final preseason game and appears full speed ahead for Week 1 of the regular season.
