Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt finished with 49 yards during the Week 1 victory over the Chargers. The air attack has been excellent for the Chiefs, so Hunt could see less of a workload this season. Hunt had 18 carries for 75 yards and did catch a five-yard pass for a touchdown in the Week 2 victory over Pittsburgh. Hunt was running well, but the Chiefs did not need to ground game on Sunday. The good news is that Hunt put up decent numbers, but it's starting to feel like his fantasy value is going to be less than it was last season.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt was held to 49 rushing yards during the Week 1 victory over the Chargers. Hunt is normally able to at least be mediocre even on a bad week, but he couldn't get anything going in Week 1. He should play better in Week 2 against a Steelers defense that gave up 177 yards and two touchdowns to the Browns in Week 1.
Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt did not make much noise during the 38-28 victory over the Chargers on Sunday. Hunt finished with 16 carries for 49 yards and zero touchdowns. Hunt was held without a reception for the first time in a full game, according to Yahoo. The Chiefs did not need Hunt on the ground because they were having so much success through the air. Hunt should have a solid bounce-back game against the Steelers in Week 2. This Week 1 performance was a disappointment, but it's unlikely that it happens again against the unstable Steelers defense.
