Hunt was spectacular in the first three weeks then to close the season for Kansas City, but the in between stretch left owners benching him before long. More than likely, we will see something in the middle, and with Spencer Ware now in the fold, his ceiling is capped. Don't forget that Andy Reid has always used a 60/30/10 type of backfield split until he had no other options last season.

Kareem Hunt working on pass-catching in OTAs

On the Chiefs official website, it states that Kareem Hunt has not only been focusing on running the ball at OTAs, but has also been catching the ball and working on his route-running.

Fantasy Impact

It definitely can't be a bad thing for his fantasy stock, especially when you consider the state of the Chiefs defense and that they're likely to be in more shootouts than they've been in recent years. The issue with relying on more production out of Hunt in the passing game, however, is the fact that they not only added Sammy Watkins, who will demand at least 80 targets, but also added third-down specialist Damien Williams in free agency. It's not to say that Hunt can't improve on his 53-catch, 455-yard, three-touchdown rookie season, but we're skeptical that there's any more targets to go around. Hunt should be considered a top-of-the-second-round fantasy pick.
