Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt played just 1 of 19 first-team snaps in Friday night's preseason opener against the 49ers, according to Pro Football Focus. RB Spencer Ware got the other 18, rushing 4 times for 6 yards and a TD, and catching 3 passes for 20 more yards. Hunt touched the ball just twice, rushing once for no gain and catching a 9-yard pass from QB Patrick Mahomes on a 3rd-and-long play. It's early, but continued usage patterns like this could make Ware a stronger value at his Round 6 ADP.
The Chiefs added Toledo RB Kareem Hunt in the 3rd round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Hunt disappointed at the Combine, posting a 28th percentile SPARQ score. But the tape is much more impressive. He flashes a nice combination of power and make-you-miss ability, which helped him force the 2nd most missed tackles in the nation last year, per Pro Football Focus. Hunt also looks comfy in the passing game. He tallied a 41-403-1 receiving line this past year after totaling just 32 grabs across his first 3 seasons. Hunt dealt with an ankle injury in 2014 and a hamstring issue in 2015, so durability is a concern. But he handled 262 carries last year and is a solid 5’10, 216 pounds. Hunt is capable of immediately pushing Spencer Ware for touches and, longer term, has a shot to emerge as a 3-down back.
