    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 10 times for 80 yards and caught five of his six targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 versus the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: For perspective, Hunt tallied five catches on nine targets for 66 yards over his first five games combined. The second-year back did the bulk of his damage early in third quarter when Patrick Mahomes bought some time and Hunt got past his defender for a 67-yard connection. Head coach Andy Reid's usage of his top back has been curious at times this season, but Hunt still finds himself as the overall RB8 after six games. Kill remain firmly in the RB1 discussion in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 7:07pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 22 times for 87 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Hunt didn't seem to be terribly affected by the No. 1 defense of the Jaguars. Sure, he was limited to 4.0 yards per carry, but he found the end zone and was able to rip off a 24-yard run in the game. He got off to a bit of a slow start, but he is starting to click again. He is a legit low-end RB1 in all fantasy leagues. The Chiefs play the Patriots on Sunday night in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/1/2018 8:24pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 19 times for 121 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos on Monday, Oct. 1, and he added three grabs for 54 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: It was Hunt's finest performance of the season, and one fantasy owners expected from the NFL's leading rusher from 2017. He had season highs across the board with 19 carries, 121 yards, 6.4 yards per rush, three receptions and 54 receiving yards. He'll face another tough defense in Week 5 against the Jaguars.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 3:31pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 44 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Hunt's average of just 2.4 yards per rush isn't going to make fantasy owners very happy, but the two scores cushion the blow a bit. He exploded on the scene last season, but these were his first scores of the year and he has been held to 50 or fewer total yards from scrimmage in two of his three outings so far. Treat him more as a RB2 in fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 3:20pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 75 yards in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers while adding a catch for five yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Hunt started out slowly last week against the Chargers, but this was more like it for fantasy owners. He still has just 124 rushing yards on 34 attempts, an average of 3.6 yards. Hunt remains a RB1 based on his production last season, but the emergence of Patrick Mahomes under center is cutting down Hunt's fantasy value a bit. The Chiefs host the 49ers in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 7:18pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 16 times for just 49 yards in the Week 1 win against the Los Angeles Chargers and he had no catches on only one target.

    Huddle Up: Hunt disappointed his fantasy owners, as the Bolts did a good job mostly bottling him up. Kansas City didn't press too hard to run the ball, as they were having mega success in the pass game. He faces another difficult matchup on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2, but he remains a fantasy stud. Be patient.

  • Posted: 9/8/2018 6:35pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt faces the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 1, and last year, Hunt rushed for a combined 327 yards in two meetings with the Chargers, topping 150 rushing yards in both games.

    Huddle Up: Hunt should be a fixture of season-long lineups all year, but after he torched the Chargers twice last year, you may also want to build around Hunt in DFS contests in the opener.

  • Posted: 8/25/2018 1:16pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt ran three times for seven yards in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 25 against the Chicago Bears while adding a 19-yard touchdown on his only catch and target.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs know what Hunt is capable of doing and likely wanted to get him out of the game as quickly as possible to avoid disaster heading into the regular season. Hunt is a bona fide RB1 across all fantasy formats heading into 2018.

  • Posted: 8/1/2018 6:17pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Aug. 1.

    Huddle Up: Hunt was limited for several practices because of a hamstring injury but should be fine moving forward. He was one of the better running backs in the league in 2017 and will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Chiefs. He likely will be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 7/28/2018 11:23am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) was limited to individual drills during practice Saturday, July 28. Head coach Andy Reid said the team is easing Hunt back into practice because he does not want Hunt to suffer a setback.

    Huddle Up: It is not known how long Hunt will be limited, but he has plenty of time to recover before the start of the season. He is coming off a fantastic rookie season and will continue to be one of the better running backs in the NFL. He likely will be off the board early during fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 7/27/2018 5:32pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) has been limited during the early part of training camp because the team is easing him back into practice.

    Huddle Up: Hunt probably will be a full participant in practice later in camp but will be fine for the start of the season. He was one of the top running backs in the league last season and will continue to receive a lot of touches. He should be a No. 1 fantasy back in all leagues.

  • Posted: 6/14/2018 10:48am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) will be fine for the start of training camp, according to head coach Andy Reid. He has missed a large portion of the offseason program with a hamstring issue.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs will likely take a cautious approach with their starting running back in training camp and the preseason. There's no reason to risk aggravation with such a valuable player. Assuming he stays healthy, Hunt is a late-first to early-second round draft consideration.

  • Posted: 5/31/2018 1:05pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (hamstring) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 31, because of a hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: The Chiefs likely will be cautious with Hunt, so he may not do much until training camp in July. He was one of the top running backs in the NFL as a rookie in 2017 and should have a similar workload this upcoming season. Hunt should be a No. 1 fantasy running back in all leagues.

  • Posted: 5/29/2018 7:16am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt said he is working on catching the ball and running more routes in organized team activities.

    Huddle Up: Hunt emerged as one of the top running backs in fantasy last season, and he'll be an option early in the first round.

  • Posted: 2/28/2018 8:52pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday, Feb. 28, that 'we probably need to expand on' RB Kareem Hunt's role in the passing game for next season.

    Huddle Up: Hunt is pretty much already locked in as an RB1 going into his second NFL campaign, but an increased presence in the club's air attack would only boost his stock even further. He was already a regular part of the passing game, drawing four targets per game in 2017, but it appears there's going to be even more work for the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year runner-up, who also rushed for 1,327 yards and eight scores this past year.

  • Posted: 2/19/2018 8:10pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt led the NFL - among players who recorded at least 175 carries - with 4.63 yards gained after defenders closed within one yard of him in 2017, according to Next Gen Stats.

    Huddle Up: This should come as no surprise to any of his owners, as Hunt routinely used exceptional balance and power to keep his feet after he got past the first level of defenders. Spencer Ware's return in 2018 could make a repeat of his league-leading rushing campaign unlikely, but Hunt has all the makings of being the next great Andy Reid running back.

  • Posted: 1/28/2018 8:52pm ET

    Georgia RB Sony Michel reminds Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com of Kansas City RB Kareem Hunt, and Jeremiah believes Michel is capable of making a similar impact in the NFL.

    Huddle Up: It will take the perfect situation for Michel to approach Hunt's rookie numbers, but he has all the tools to be an every-down back. At the very least, Michel can be targeted early in rookie drafts.

  • Posted: 1/6/2018 5:24pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt ran 11 times for 42 yards and scored a touchdown in his team's 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Wild Card action.

    Huddle Up: Hunt rebounded in the second half of the season after a hot start and cool middle of the year. He remains Kansas City's No. 1 running option heading into 2018 and a low RB1 or high-end RB2 in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/25/2017 2:10pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt is just the 10th running back in NFL history to achieve at least 1,000 rushing yards, 400 receiving yards and 10 total touchdowns in his first season. He's the first rookie running back to accomplish the feat since Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin in 2012.

    Huddle Up: Hunt started off hot and cooled down a little bit, but his rookie campaign can't go unnoticed. He's in RB1 territory heading into 2018 with added value in PPR leagues. As long as he's healthy he can be drafted in the first round of fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 5:33pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed 29 times for 91 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 game against the Miami Dolphins and he added four grabs for 15 yards on his four targets.

    Huddle Up: Hunt hit the rookie wall, coinciding with the team's slide during the middle of the season. He has caught a second wind, running 78 times for 360 yards and at least one touchdown in each of the past three games while posting 14 runs for 88 yards and another score. He has been a big reason why a lot of people will win championship money or trophies this week.

  • Posted: 12/16/2017 8:56pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt ran 24 times for 155 yards and a touchdown and caught seven passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in a 30-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers Saturday, Dec. 16.

    Huddle Up: Hunt busted out of his slump with a 100-yard effort in Week 14, and he kept the momentum going. It seems like Kansas City has remembered that feeding Hunt results in good things for the offense, and he is back to his RB1 ways at the perfect time for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 2:23pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 40 yards on nine carries against the New York Jets in Week 13. He also caught three passes for 23 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has been held to 40 yards or less in three of his last four games and has gone nine games without a rushing touchdown. He still has some fantasy value because he is the team's No. 1 running back but may only be a No. 2 fantasy running back or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 2:45pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 17 yards on 11 carries against the Buffalo Bills. He also caught one pass for nine yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has been a bit of a disappointment over the last several weeks after his strong start to the season. He has been held to under 50 yards in three of the last four games and has gone eight games without a rushing touchdown. He should be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option next week.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 8:07am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 12, which have yielded the highest average fantasy points to the position the last five weeks.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has cooled off a bit the last five weeks with no touchdowns or 100-yard rushing games. Since the Bills traded Marcell Dareus, their defense has fallen off a cliff. They allowed 32.1 fantasy points per game to backs over the last five weeks, which is nearly seven points more per game than the next team. Opposing backs have 10 rushing scores in five games against them. Hunt is an elite RB1 play this week.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 2:19pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 73 yards on 18 carries against the New York Giants in Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has been slowing down after the fast start to the season but had a solid performance against the Giants. He will continue to receive a significant amount of touches moving forward and can be at least a No. 2 running back in all leagues.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 8:06pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt finished with a season-low nine carries for 37 yards and caught four passes for 24 yards in a 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: The rookie's rushing totals have been lacking in recent weeks, but an upcoming bye week and Week 11 matchup with an imploding New York Giants team should help Hunt return to his RB1 form.

  • Posted: 10/30/2017 9:35pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt was held to a season-low 68 yards from scrimmage in the team's Week 8 victory Monday, Oct. 30, versus the Denver Broncos. He had 46 rushing yards on 22 carries to go with three receptions for 22 yards. It was the first time Hunt did not record 100 total yards after hitting that plateau in an NFL-record seven straight games to begin his career.

    Huddle Up: Well, Hunt's remarkable streak had to be snapped at some point, and it was halted by a stingy Broncos defense. Nonetheless, Hunt has been one of the league's biggest surprises in 2017 and this particular showing shouldn't suddenly slow down the 22-year-old. He should still be inserted as an RB1 in all leagues.

  • Posted: 10/27/2017 9:52am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt has forced a NFL-high 37 missed tackles over the first seven games of his career, putting him on pace for 85 according to Pro Football Focus. Over the past two full seasons per PFF, no running back has finished with more than 60 in a season.

    Huddle Up: Hunt's big plays have fallen off recently as the Chiefs have been without two starting offensive lineman and defenses have adjusted, but the rookie's ability to play through contact has been impressive throughout. With his two offensive linemen - guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and center Mitch Morse - expected back as soon as this week, look for Hunt's fantasy numbers to spike again soon. Keep him in fantasy lineups despite a difficult matchup with the Denver Broncos in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/21/2017 7:07pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt is the only player in NFL history to gain 100 or more yards from scrimmage in each of his first seven games.

    Huddle Up: Not only does Hunt lead the league in rushing, but his sizeable role in the passing game allows him to remain a weapon no matter the score and pace of play. He will be a must-start RB1 when the Chiefs face the Denver Broncos in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 10:13pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt carried the ball 18 times for 87 yards against the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, Oct. 19. He added four receptions for 30 yards.

    Huddle Up: Make it seven straight of more than 100 total yards for Hunt, who continues to make big plays and move piles. The only asterisk to Hunt's unbelievable rookie campaign is the ongoing touchdown drought; he hasn't scored since Week 3 after scoring six times in his first three games. He'll get a nice break to recharge his batteries as the Chiefs don't play until Oct. 30 against the Broncos.

  • Posted: 10/18/2017 1:23pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) will be active Thursday, Oct. 19, versus the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: The rookie phenom has been matchup-proof through the first several weeks of his first professional season. He won't have to worry about Charcandrick West stealing touchdowns this week either as West will not be active. Start Hunt as a high-end RB1 per usual.

  • Posted: 10/17/2017 2:25pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Hunt has been on fire in his inaugural professional season. Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders have been one of the league's worst defenses against running backs. Start Hunt as you normally would even on a short week.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 7:47pm ET

    Kansas City Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt (knee) was a full participant in practice Monday, Oct. 16.

    Huddle Up: Hunt was a bit humbled for the first time in his rookie campaign on Sunday, being held to just 21 yards on the ground on nine carries, but he still managed to salvage his day with five catches for 89 yards through the air. He'll be out there on Thursday night and as usual, he can be fired up as a trusty RB1.
