Titans' Akeem Hunt: Signs with Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt was added to the Titans' active roster Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

Hunt will fill a depth role for Tennessee. He hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2017.

Akeem Hunt: Agrees to injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (ankle) agreed to an injury settlement Wednesday and was waived from the Chiefs' injured reserve list.

Hunt didn't earn more than a single carry in any one game last season until Week 17, when starting running back Kareem Hunt sat out to rest up for the playoffs. The third-year back only received four carries in that affair before going down with an undisclosed ankle injury that ultimately prevented him from passing a physical with Kansas City this past May. Now free from IR, Hunt will immediately be available to sign with any team other than the Chiefs should he pass through waivers unclaimed.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (ankle) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.

Hunt injured his ankle in the 2017 season finale and was waived Tuesday after failing his physical. Barring an injury settlement, he's likely stuck on IR through the end of the 2018 season.

Akeem Hunt: Waived by Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (ankle) failed his physical and has been waived by the Chiefs, Pete Sweeney of 610 Sports Radio reports.

Hunt departed Week 17 last season after suffering an ankle injury and was placed on injured reserve the next week as a result. It appears his ankle hasn't healed enough at this point and the offseason additions of Damien Williams (shoulder), Kerwynn Williams and Darrel Williams makes it easier for the team to let him go. Hunt saw just 51 offensive snaps for the Chiefs last season but could find a home as a special teams contributor elsewhere if his ankle passes the test.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs placed Hunt (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Pete Sweeney of the team's official site reports.

Weeks 16 and 17 were tough ones for Hunt, who entered the latter with a shoulder injury only to leave it with an ankle issue. The toll from both seemingly won't allow Hunt to play again during the Chiefs' upcoming playoff run. No matter, Kareem Hunt is the lead back by a mile in Kansas City, so Charcandrick West (illness) and the recently re-signed C.J. Spiller likely won't see the field much, if at all, in the coming weeks.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Exits game with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt was forced out of Sunday's game against the Broncos with an ankle injury.

With the Chiefs locked into the AFC's No. 4 playoff seed, the plan was to rest key starters, so Hunt had an opportunity to see added carries in Week 17. Now that he's banged up, the team has fullback Anthony Sherman, as well as Kareem Hunt -- who was presumably originally ticketed for little to no work Sunday -- to handle backfield duties.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Officially active in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (shoulder) is active for Sunday's Week 17 tilt against the Broncos.

Hunt projects for the heaviest workload of his career, as head coach Andy Reid will likely be loathe to have starter Kareem Hunt see the field in a game in which he'd originally planned to rest him altogether. Fellow running back Charcandrick West's illness and subsequent inactive status disrupted those plans, but expect Akeem Hunt to still log the overwhelming majority of carries against Denver, with fullback Anthony Sherman and even wideout De'Anthony Thomas possibly seeing the occasional tote as well.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Could see plenty of work Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (shoulder) is expected to see extended snaps Sunday against the Broncos with lead back Kareem Hunt likely to be rested or see a restricted workload and Charcandrick West (illness) ruled out, Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star reports.

Since the two Hunts are the only available tailbacks on the roster with West out of the mix, it's likely that Kareem will dress for the contest. However, with the Chiefs locked in as the AFC's No. 4 seed, the team has little to gain by exposing the standout rookie to injury, positioning Akeem to see the bulk of the snaps out of the backfield in Week 17. With four carries for minus-2 yards and three receptions for 27 yards across 14 contests this season, Hunt doesn't offer much of a sample for fantasy players to project from, but the opportunity he has to see heavy volume might be enough to make him an interesting speculative play in DFS or season-long formats.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Practices fully, but listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos after practicing fully all week.

Charcandrick West (illness) is also listed as questionable, but we'd expect both backs to suit up Sunday. With the Chiefs locked into the AFC's No. 4 playoff seed, starting running back Kareem Hunt is a candidate to be rested in Week 17, per ESPN's Adam Teicher. As a result, Akeem Hunt and West appear on track to see expanded roles this weekend.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Practicing in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Hunt sprained his shoulder during last week's victory over the Dolphins. However, his full availability for Wednesday's practice suggests the injury was relatively minor and puts him firmly on track to play in the regular-season finale Sunday against the Broncos. It's possible he could see some carries on offense if the postseason-bound Chiefs rest their starters, since they having nothing to gain by winning.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Suffers shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt hurt his shoulder and is considered questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Hunt was having himself a nice day on special teams before exiting, logging 76 yards on three kickoff returns. If he can't return Sunday, De'Anthony Thomas would presumably take over kickoff-return responsibilities.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Two touches in backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt ran once for two yards and caught his sole target for 20 yards Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Jets.

With Charcandrick West (personal) away from the team, Hunt moved into the backup role during Sunday's tilt. He could stay in that role next week against the Raiders should West remain unavailable, but he remains off the fantasy radar regardless.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: In line to back up Kareem Hunt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Charcandrick West (personal) out Sunday against the Jets, Hunt is line to serve as the Chiefs' No. 2 running back, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

He'll work as Kareem Hunt's backup Sunday, with Chiefs head coach Andy Reid noting that no one will be coming up from the team's practice squad to replace West this weekend. Akeem Hunt has logged just three carries and two catches in 10 games this season, but in Week 13, he could make a modest mark in the passing game, an area where West could be missed.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Receives first carry of 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt rushed once for three yards Sunday against the Steelers.

Hunt joined the mix Sunday after Charcandrick West (concussion) departed the contest and was unable to return. With Kareem Hunt still playing 78 percent of the team's snaps and C.J. Spiller rejoining the equation, Hunt's upside heading into next week remains severely limited even if West can't go.

Chiefs' Akeem Hunt: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs promoted Hunt to their active roster Saturday, Terez A. Paylor of KansasCity.com reports.

The Chiefs opted to release veteran C.J. Spiller in favor of Hunt on Saturday. Given fellow running back Kareem Hunt's remarkable debut with the club, the team will air on the side of special teams performance, which is why the 24-year-old Hunt was called up. Do not expect much fantasy production unless there is an injury ahead of him on the depth chart.

Akeem Hunt: Joins Kansas City practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs signed Hunt to their practice squad Tuesday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

The similarly named Kareem Hunt is slated to the head the Chiefs' backfield this season, but Akeem won't receive any opportunities with Kansas City unless further injuries thin the team's depth at running back. Hunt parlayed a practice squad spot with Houston last season into appearances in eight games with the Texans, during which he compiled 109 yards on 20 carries (5.4 per-carry average). A strained hamstring in training camp ended his bid for a roster spot with the Texans this summer, but he's reportedly healthy now and could make for an interesting developmental prospect for the Chiefs.

Akeem Hunt: Waived by Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (hamstring) was waived by the Texans on Sunday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Hunt's injuries coupled with the team's expansive depth at running back made him expendable once Houston brought in wide receiver Andy Jones on Sunday. At 24 years old, Hunt could find a new home based solely on his youthful potential, but his fantasy value seems greatly diminished at the moment.

Texans' Akeem Hunt: Misses practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt (hamstring) is working his way back into action but hasn't practiced this week, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

When healthy, Hunt has been battling Tyler Irvin for primary kick return duties but finds himself buried on the depth chart at running back. Although Hunt's injury is considered minor, any missed time may hurt his chances of making the Texans' final roster.

Texans' Akeem Hunt: Returns kickoffs in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt returned two kickoffs for 36 yards in Houston's preseason-opening loss to the Panthers on Wednesday.

Tyler Ervin was the main return man last season but had some problems with his handle, fumbling five times and losing two of them. The Texans aren't necessarily moving on from Ervin, but will give others opportunities, particularly early in the preseason. Hunt and Ervin are similar backs and there seemingly would be redundancy if both were given roster spots.

Texans' Akeem Hunt: Carries the ball once in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunt caught two of two targets for 28 yards and added a six-yard run in Saturday's win over the Bengals.

A week after a two-fumble afternoon, Hunt didn't see an uptick in usage despite starter Lamar Miller on the shelf - Alfred Blue picking up the majority of the load. Hunt has yet to score this season and hasn't reached double-digit offensive snaps since Week 11, but he might be in line for an uptick in usage as the season ends. Miller is still battling a bum ankle and, with their seed set, Houston might be inclined to rest Miller and Blue for the playoffs.
