Chiefs' Kareem Hunt: Scores touchdown in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Nabs rushing title Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt nabbed the rushing title for the 2017 season with a 35-yard touchdown run during the first minute of Sunday's 27-24 win in Denver.

Hunt wasn't expected to play at all in the Chiefs' regular-season finale, like top skill-position talents Alex Smith, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. However, reserve running back Charcandrick West was unable to get over an illness and was deemed inactive Week 17, forcing Hunt to remain active alongside Akeem Hunt (shoulder) and fullback Anthony Sherman. With his first and only carry of the game, Kareem Hunt dashed to the house to set a solid footing for an eventual win, and secured the rushing title from inactive RBs Todd Gurley and Le'Veon Bell in the process. Expect Hunt, the rookie, to take over lead-back duties in Kansas City's playoff opener Saturday versus the Titans.

Chiefs' Kareem Hunt: Active but not guaranteed to play Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With fellow running back Charcandrick West (illness) out in Week 17, Hunt is officially active against the Broncos.

As per Adam Teicher of ESPN.com, head coach Andy Reid's original intention had been to sit Hunt alongside fellow front-line players Alex Smith, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. That notion essentially evaporated once West's illness left the Chiefs with Akeem Hunt (shoulder) and fullback Anthony Sherman as the only viable backfield candidates. Kareem Hunt's active status doesn't equate to a guarantee he'll log any carries, but he'll be in uniform and available should injury strike Akeem Hunt at some point during the contest.

Chiefs' Kareem Hunt: Fellow running back ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.
