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
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
Posted: 10/15/2017 7:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Hunt performed well for his PPR fantasy owners, but those in standard formats weren't as thrilled with the production. It's a quick turnaround with the Chiefs traveling to visit the Raiders on Thursday night in Week 7.
Posted: 10/6/2017 8:47pm ET
Huddle Up: Hunt's ability to wear down defenses and force missed tackles has helped fuel his strong start to the year. He faces a tough matchup against the Houston Texans in Week 5, but the way he is running right now, he needs to be deployed as a RB1.
Posted: 10/2/2017 10:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Remarkably, the rookie has now topped 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first four games. This was the first contest in which he didn't score a touchdown, but considering all that he's done thus far, owners certainly won't complain. He's easily been the brightest surprise in fantasy up to this point and Hunt has provided no reasons to doubt him as a legitimate RB1. Keep relying on him with confidence.
Posted: 9/27/2017 9:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Any way you look at it, it's been an incredible start for the third-round pick. Hunt actually leads the league in rushing heading into Week 4, and is doing so by a wide margin -- he's already surpassed 400 rushing yards, while Dalvin Cook, who is second, has 288. Hunt is also tied for the league lead in touchdowns with four. Owners can continue to plug him in as their RB1 with confidence.
Posted: 9/26/2017 9:20am ET
Huddle Up: Reid's words are music to the ears of his fantasy owners. Hunt is averaging 8.5 yards per carry, breaking tackles on roughly every other run and on pace to record the most touches of any Chiefs running back since Jamaal Charles racked up 329 in 2013. Given Reid's history with running backs, don't expect the rookie's production to slow down anytime soon. Hunt has quickly emerged as possibly the best and safest play among fantasy running backs this season.
Posted: 9/24/2017 6:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Hunt is the first rookie since Matt Forte in 2008 to post 100 or more scrimmage yards in each of his first three NFL games. He continues to carry fantasy owners who took a chance on him in the middle rounds on draft day. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 4 against the Redskins on Monday Night Football.
Posted: 9/19/2017 5:31pm ET
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.
Posted: 9/17/2017 1:55pm ET
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.
Posted: 9/7/2017 9:27pm ET
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.
Posted: 9/5/2017 5:29pm ET
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.
Posted: 8/25/2017 8:31pm ET
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
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.
Posted: 8/8/2017 9:02am ET
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.
