  • Hunt did not participate in OTAs on Thursday due to a hamstring injury, Nate Taylor of The Athletic Kansas City reports. Given that the Chiefs said they were holding Hunt out of practice as a precaution, the injury likely isn't being viewed as anything serious during these optional workouts. Look for Kansas City to take every precaution necessary to ensure the tailback is 100 percent for the start of training camp.

  • Chiefs' Kareem Hunt: May get more targets
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hunt could take on a larger role in the passing game in 2018, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. "We probably need to expand on [Hunt's] role in the pass game," Reid said. "A healthy [Spencer] Ware would be a nice problem to have there. They're best friends, and that would be a nice problem to have." Hunt's pass-catching potential was a major draw after he caught 41 balls for 403 yards his senior season at Toledo, and he made good on that promise by catching 53 of 63 targets for 455 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie, despite losing much of the passing-down work to Charcandrick West. With Spencer Ware expected to return from an ACL injury that wiped out his entire 2017 season, the Chiefs could opt to rest Hunt on early downs instead of passing downs, which could in turn make West expendable. Regardless of how the work ultimately is divided, the Chiefs presumably plan for Hunt to rank among the league leaders in touches. As a rookie, he finished fifth in the league in touches (325) and third in scrimmage yards (1,782), in addition to winning a rushing title (1,327 yards) while ranking sixth in carries (272). Hunt lines up as a top-15 commodity in the vast majority of formats heading into 2018.

  • Hunt rushed 11 times for 42 yards and a touchdown while catching all three of his targets for five yards in Saturday's 22-21, wild-card round loss to the Titans. Hunt opened the scoring with a one-yard plunge, but failed to get much going after that as his team blew a 21-3 halftime lead. The rookie started the season hot and nabbed the league rushing title, but he flamed out when needed most. Still, Hunt's going to cost a hefty price in redraft leagues next year and makes for a wonderful keeper given his cheap going rate in most drafts prior to this campaign.

  • Chiefs' Kareem Hunt: Fellow running back ruled out
    By RotoWire Staff

    Charcandrick West (illness) won't play Sunday against the Broncos, leaving Kareem Hunt and Akeem Hunt (shoulder) as the Chiefs' options at running back in Week 17. As a result, it looks like both Kareem and Akeem Hunt will probably be in uniform for Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff, but with the Chiefs locked into the AFC's No. 4 playoff seed, key players like Kareem Hunt may see limited (or no) action in Week 17. For what it's worth, Kareem Hunt trails Todd Gurley (who is not expected to play Sunday) by just 13 yards for the league lead in rushing. In any case, given the context of what Kansas City is playing for, we'd expect Akeem Hunt to pace the team's backfield this week in terms of touches.

  • Chiefs' Kareem Hunt: Likely out Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hunt is expected to sit out Sunday in Denver, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. After head coach Andy Reid decided to name Patrick Mahomes the starting quarterback for the regular-season finale Wednesday, the writing was on the wall for all of the Chiefs' primary skill-position players. With Tyreek Hill (non-injury) also ruled out, Hunt is poised to join him, along with Alex Smith and Travis Kelce. In place of Hunt, backfield reps will likely be split between Akeem Hunt (shoulder) and Charcandrick West (illness), who are both questionable for Sunday's contest.
