Hunt rushed 14 times for 70 yards and caught three of four targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 54-51 loss to the Rams.
Hunt scored Kansas City's second touchdown of the night with a 21-yard catch and run along the right sideline during the second quarter. That play continued the tailback's assault through the air, where he's now produced a touchdown six times over his last six games. Considering he's only topped 20 carries once this season, that pass-game production has been an excellent bonus. That being said, he remains very efficient on the ground, giving him a great shot at over 100 scrimmage yards on a weekly basis and keeping him among the best fantasy options at his position.
Hunt had what could be termed a modest game by his lofty standards, but he was still very efficient on a per-touch basis. The second-year back has seen under 20 carries in all but one game this season, which limits his overall fantasy upside to an extent. Additionally, after notching five catches in three straight games in Weeks 6-8, Hunt has just three receptions combined over the last pair of contests. Nevertheless, he naturally remains an elite every-week play in any format, given his ability for a chunk play on any touch. He'll look to shine in a highly anticipated Week 11 Monday night matchup against the Rams in Mexico City.
Hunt rushed for 91 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries and added a 50-yard touchdown catch during Sunday' 37-21 win over Cleveland.
Hunt struck first on Sunday, taking a Patrick Mahomes dump pass for a 50-yard score. He followed up with touchdown runs of one yard in the second quarter and 10 yards in the third quarter to help the Chiefs pull away. Hunt has now scored in eight consecutive games and has scored multiple touchdowns thrice. Hunt is getting it done both in the running and pass game and gets a solid matchup next Sunday against an Arizona defense surrendering 4.3 yards per carry, good for dead average in the league.
Hunt rushed for 50 yards on 16 carries and added 36 yards and a touchdown on five receptions during Sunday's 30-23 win over Denver.
With the Chiefs facing fourth and short from the Denver 23 in the third quarter, Hunt took a quick shovel pass and hurdled defenders on the way to a touchdown reception that was all but the straw that broke the Broncos' back. After carving them up in Week 4, Hunt was stuffed most of the game by the Broncos' run defense, but still managed to find the end zone for his seventh consecutive game with a score. He should prove valuable next Sunday against a Cleveland defense that is among the best in the league against the pass, but is middle-of-the-road against the run, surrendering 4.5 yards per opponent carry.
Hunt rushed 15 times for 86 yards and a touchdown, adding 55 yards and two more scores on five receptions (six targets) in Sunday's 45-10 win over the Bengals.
Hunt's stat line was certainly impressive, but he stole the show early in the first quarter when he spun out of a tackle and hurdled a defender for a huge gain. Patrick Mahomes rewarded his back with a touchdown reception on that same drive. Hunt has really taken off over the last four weeks, averaging 148.8 yards from scrimmage and six total touchdowns over that span. The 23-year-old's ability to contribute both on the ground and through the air virtually makes him matchup-proof. That said, Hunt is lined up to face the Broncos' porous run defense (148.1 rushing yards allowed per game) in Week 8.
