    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook and Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt lead the NFL with six big-play rushes - defined as runs that cover more than 10 yards - through two games.

    Huddle Up: Unsurprisingly, Hunt leads the league in rushing with 229 yards, while Cook is third with a NFC-best 191. Hunt's five total touchdowns are tied for the second-most by any player in his first two career games, while his 355 scrimmage yards is the fourth-highest total by a rookie in his team's first two games in league history. Cook only needs to find the end zone - he has yet to do so - with some regularity before ascending into fantasy RB1 territory.

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt had 13 carries for 81 yards and scored two touchdowns in a 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Sept. 17. He also caught all three of his targeted passes for 28 yards.

    Huddle Up: Facing two strong teams out of the starting gate, Hunt has been quite impressive. It has been a solid debut for Hunt, who is gaining status as an RB1 option with each carry. Scoring and yardage leagues will benefit from Hunt's fleet feet.

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt ran 17 times for 148 yards (8.7 YPC), caught five passes for 98 yards (19.6 YPR) and scored three times in Week 1 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: If you were wondering about the distribution of carries between Hunt and Charcandrick West heading into Thursday, wonder no more. After an early fumble, Hunt turned 22 total touches into 246 yards and three touchdowns while West had one carry and one reception. It's a long season, but Hunt looks like a legitimate featured back and possible weekly play as a high-end RB2 with RB1 potential.

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt will be the team's 'regular featured back' against the New England Patriots on Thursday, Sept. 7, according to ESPN.com's Adam Teicher.

    Huddle Up: This story has taken a few twists and turns over the last few days with coordinator Matt Nagy hinting at a committee Monday, but that seems unlikely given how Charcandrick West has failed to distinguish himself in 2016 or during the preseason. West will probably log about five or so touches per game and Tyreek Hill may steal a few carries here and there, but this is shaping up to be Hunt's backfield for as long as he can handle it.

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt carried a team-high nine times for 39 yards in a 26-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the preseason Friday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: Hunt was already making a case to split time with Spencer Ware, and Ware suffered a potentially serious knee injury Friday. If Ware misses time, Hunt would instantly become a RB2 candidate.

  • Posted: 8/19/2017 6:15pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt played 17 of the first 19 snaps of the preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals Saturday, Aug. 19, and had eight carries for 40 yards and three catches for 23 yards.

    Huddle Up: Hunt was given a chance to show his stuff with the starters, and he made the most of it. The versatile rookie is making a strong case for a big role in the offense, and he could potentially overtake Spencer Ware. He might not be a bad gamble as a RB3.

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt is seeing increased work with the first-team as time goes on and could potentially work himself into the starting running back this preseason, according to ArrowheadPride.com's Pete Sweeney.

    Huddle Up: This should not come as a major shock, as Hunt has been consistently been praised by the coaching staff for his ability to process the playbook and his general NFL readiness. Spencer Ware is a likely best candidate at his early fourth-round ADP, while Hunt is an extreme value at his mid eighth-round ADP. This has all the makings of a split backfield early on, and it is a battle the rookie could easily win a few weeks into the season.

  • Posted: 6/5/2017 12:13pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt signed his four-year rookie deal Monday, June 5. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Hunt's playmaking ability and athleticism will help him challenge Spence Ware right away. Ware won't be pushed over easily, but Hunt should be targeted as a mid- to late-round handcuff for those who draf Ware.

  • Posted: 5/19/2017 9:37pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt will lead the team in rushing and be the leading receiver among the running backs, according to beat writer Adam Teicher.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has all the tools to be an every-down back, and Spencer Ware is by no means untouchable. The buzz continues to build around Hunt, and he could be a hidden gem later in drafts.

  • Posted: 4/28/2017 9:08pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt's 'contact balance' and running style stood out, according to general manager John Dorsey.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has the tools to challenge for the starting gig as a rookie or at least share carries with Spencer Ware. Grab him in the later rounds in redraft leagues, and he is worth considering in the first round in rookie drafts.

  • Posted: 4/28/2017 7:49pm ET

    The Kansas City Chiefs selected RB Kareem Hunt with the 86th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has the tools to be a three-down back, and he could be one of the bigger fantasy surprises from this draft class. He is a sleeper candidate in redraft leagues and someone to draft aggressively in keeper formats.
