WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

The Chiefs waived running back Akeem Hunt.

Hunt was waived after he failed his physical. He had an ankle injury that had him sent to injured reserve at the end of last season, so this probably has to do with that. Kansas City still has a very deep running back depth chart without Hunt, but perhaps they'd bring him back at some point if he doesn't sign elsewhere.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

Akeem Hunt handles five touches in Week 17 win.

Hunt rushed four times for 25 yards and caught a four-yard pass. The 24-year-old didn't play as much as expected, as Anthony Sherman handled 17 touches with the starters resting. In his first year with the Chiefs, Hunt rushed eight times for 23 yards and caught four passes for 31 yards. He will look to make some plays in the postseason.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

Akeem Hunt leaves game with a shoulder injury.

Hunt did not return after injuring his shoulder, and he didn't have any offensive touches before leaving. Hopefully the shoulder issue isn't too bad as Hunt can get back out there soon.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

Akeem Hunt gets two offensive touches in Week 13.

Hunt had a two-yard carry and a 20-yard reception versus the Jets. He's not a fantasy option right now.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

Akeem Hunt gets two touches versus Buffalo.

Hunt had one carry for -10 yards and one reception for six yards. He did also have a kick return of 32 yards, but h's not a fantasy option right now.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

Akeem Hunt gets one carry in Week 11.

Hunt gained three yards on his lone attempt versus the Giants, and he doesn't get enough touches to be a fantasy option right now.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

The Chiefs brought up RB Akeem Hunt from the practice squad.

Kansas City released veteran running back C.J. Spiller and went with the 24-year-old Hunt. Hunt will likely be active for tomorrow's game against the Eagles, but he's unlikely to make any fantasy impact. There is a chance he works his way into a decent role behind starter Kareem Hunt (try not to confuse the names) this season.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

The Chiefs signed Akeem Hunt to their practice squad.

Not to be confused with the team's starter, rookie Kareem Hunt, Akeem was waived by the Texans a couple days ago. Akeem Hunt would likely be promoted to the active roster in the event of an injury to Kareem Hunt, Charcandrick West, or  C.J. Spiller.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

Akeem Hunt gets five touches in first preseason game.

Hunt had two carries for eight yards and three receptions for 38 yards. His best play was a 16-yard reception where Deshaun Watson hit him on a slant route that he zoomed through the middle of the field on. Hunt also has kick return duties in his favor as he tries to make the final roster.

Akeem Hunt doesn't get much work despite Lamar Miller being inactive.

Hunt had one carry for six yards and two catches for 28 yards against Cincinnati. The explosive running back only needs a few touches to make an impact, but he's not a trustworthy fantasy option.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

Akeem Hunt rushed once for 19 yards in Sunday's win.

Hunt has been good with limited touches, but he saw just one on a day where the Texans ran it 41 times. He can stay on the waiver wire.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

Akeem Hunt rushed twice for 19 yards in Sunday's loss.

Hunt has looked good in limited action since being signed from the practice squad, but Lamar Miller remains the workhorse for Houston. Miller did limp off late in Sunday's game, so if he's out next week, Hunt would be a good pickup as an RB2 for Week 13 versus the Packers.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

Akeem Hunt takes backup duties with Blue out.

Hunt rushed five times for negative-two yards, and had a 39-yard kick return. The second-year back converted on a crucial fourth down late in the game, but the refs blew it and said he was short. Hunt is not a fantasy option behind Lamar Miller.

Akeem Hunt | Titans RB

Akeem Hunt has good showing in first game promoted from the practice squad.

Hunt had eight carries for 52 yards for the Texans after being promoted to the active roster a couple of days ago. Hunt also played well in limited action last season, averaging 5.6 yards per carry on 17 carries. Hunt would likely need something to happen to Lamar Miller to make a fantasy impact, but he's someone to keep an eye on.
