2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: BE CAREFUL EXPECTING TOO MUCH FROM KAREEM HUNT AT THE START

It has been a week of euphoria and excitement for those who own fantasy football stock in Kansas City Chiefs rookie running back Kareem Hunt to say the least.  Once it was known that incumbent starter Spencer Ware would miss the entire 2017 season due to a serious knee injury suffered in the third preseason game, Hunt moved right to the forefront for those taking part in fantasy football drafts this late in the summer.  Even head coach Andy Reid got caught up in all the excitement as he proclaimed Hunt to be the team's primary back beginning in Week 1.  Well Reid began to walk that back a bit on Monday amid reports that the Chiefs will now employ a committee that could also involve veterans Charcandrick West and C.J. Spiller.  With both West and Spiller having proved to be competent NFL running backs, this is not good news at all for those who were looking to use Hunt as at least a RB 2 in Week 1.  While Hunt can both run and catch the football, he reportedly has struggled in pass protection which no NFL coach will overlook.  That could be what is leading to the committee talk and so those who own Hunt need to look at their other options to see if in fact sitting him is the better route to take.
