2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
A pre-season injury to Spencer Ware gave Hunt, a third-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the opportunity to make a name for himself. He did just that, leading many fantasy owners to a championship on his way to leading the NFL in rushing. What's perhaps most impressive is that Hunt did it while running behind one of the worst-graded run blocking units in the league. But while there were certainly plenty of reasons to be excited about the 2017 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, there were also some concerns that we should take notice of heading into the 2018 season.

Hunt's week-to-week performance dipped, particularly mid-season when he failed to score a single touchdown from Weeks 4 through 13. This fantasy scoring drought coincided with the Chiefs as a whole struggling on the field. Hunt struggled to produce in games where Kansas City fell behind on the scoreboard and that could be a serious problem this season given that the Chiefs are not expected to be quite as good as they were in 2017 when they outperformed most expectations, particularly on offense. Despite the long scoreless streak, Hunt scored a total of 11 touchdowns in the other seven games, finishing as the RB4 for the season. That was actually a bit disappointing given the numerous huge performances he had, but he was drafted as an RB2 or even RB3 in many leagues and he certainly returned huge profit on investment.

This season Hunt will be off the board in the first or early-second round in most leagues, which means you're paying for RB1 production. He certainly has the potential to return that value but it would be difficult for him to improve on his nearly five yards per carry and 53 receptions that he gave fantasy owners in 2017. Still, even if he doesn't give fantasy owners the type of per-touch efficiency that he did as a rookie, Hunt is one of the few true three-down, bellcow running backs in the league. His floor is as a mid-level RB2 as long as he stays healthy, which should make him a relatively safe option near the top of drafts.
