RB Kareem Hunt went unclaimed on waivers on Monday. He's now a free agent. "Several teams" considering claiming Hunt, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but they all ultimately decided against it. It obviously would have brought a media backlash. And Hunt is facing a lengthy suspension anyway. We're guessing that he'll get another shot in the NFL -- he's an elite talent and just 23 -- but that's certainly not guaranteed. Hunt is worth stashing on dynasty rosters, though.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that former Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt faces a suspension of more than 6 games as the NFL investigates 2 separate incidents. We wouldn't expect Hunt to get another shot with any team until this is resolved. We'll see whether his career continues after that.
And now the Chiefs have announced they're releasing RB Kareem Hunt. It's a stunning fall overall but not a shocking development given today's video release. We'll see if Hunt gets claimed on waivers like Reuben Foster did recently. Either way, Spencer Ware is your starting RB in K.C. for the rest of 2018. Damien Williams sits behind him on the depth chart and is worth a look in many leagues. Don't overreach/overpay to add Williams.
The league has placed Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt on the Commissioner's Exempt List after today's revelation of the video in which he's pushing and kicking a woman. That will sideline Hunt indefinitely, thrusting RB Spencer Ware into the starting role for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He needs to be picked up in all leagues immediately. This might signal the end of Hunt's season.
The Chiefs sent RB Kareem Hunt home after learning of the release of a video showing him abusing a woman back in February, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports. Both the team and the league are surely considering what action to take here. "Most likely short-term resolution is that Hunt would be placed on the commissioner's exempt list pending a final decision," Graziano adds. Hunt's status for this weekend's game against the Raiders is murky. If he doesn't play, Spencer Ware would step in as Kansas City's lead back and be a borderline RB1 in fantasy lineups.
