Kareem Hunt Hype Thread

Postby Lssd2012 » Sat Aug 19, 2017 5:14 pm

He's been playing really solid tonight and the coaches have been saying all the right things to indicate that he will play a major role in the offense. The Chiefs main beat reporter even thinks that Hunt will have more yards, carries and receptions than Ware this year and could likely be the starter by Week 1. If thats the case, Hunt - with his all-around ability - has a great chance in being the top rookie rb this year imo. Andy Reid has already been comparing him to Lesean Mccoy, Westbrook, etc which wouldn't be too surprising to me anymore. I think he makes a way bigger impact than Corey Davis this year and I have him as my 1.05 this year.

I threw in a rookie of the year bet at 50-1 a week ago. $20 is worth a shot at a grand. Fantasy wise, i have the backfield, so hope its not a 50/50 split or something like that. He looked really good tonight. If people are excited about Cook's game last night, i am guessing Hunt will get similar or higher praise.

Here's a pair of quotes from RB Coach Bieniemy...

On Ware:
"No.32 (Spencer Ware), he is obviously a workhorse," Bienemy said. "He is what he is. It is not anything special, he is just a consistent professional player."
On Hunt:
"We have young Kareem Hunt who has been doing an outstanding job picking up the offense, doing a great job of running the football, doing a great job of learning how to protect the proper way. Also, he is doing a great job of catching the football."
We can see which way the RB coach is leaning here...

Let's not overreact to a preseason game. They basically rested their starter in Ware. Only injury will prevent this from being a split. He is not even close to class of McCaffrey, Mixon, Fournett, or cook.

What are you basing this on.....?
I think they know what they have in Ware, dependable, safe, un-inspiring. I see Hunt as the next E. Smith, R. Rice. A. Foster type of RB- people are sleeping on this dude!!

Go watch his underwhelming tape. He is not special. He does nothing great and is not explosive athlete. Good but not great back and Ware is the guy going to get the goal line scores.

His athleticism is average or below but his talent and vision is undeniable. Athleticism is not the end all be all requirement for RBs (see Arian Foster, Devonta Freeman, Mark Ingram). I agree that he doesn't look extremely good in any part of the game and that he is a really solid back BUT he is a REALLY solid back. I mean he never even fumbled in college, just shows to me that he really cares about the craft, etc and the coaches are definetely noticing.

He could in time be solid but don't think he is some super stud. He is not going to put up the numbers you will see from top 4 backs in this class. There is a reason they went where they did in the draft. Spencer Ware is a good back that Andy Reid likes, and he will always be getting those red zone looks.

Maybe I got a little overzealous with my comparisons but I think he may have that "it" factor that those other comparisons have. True natural instinct RB, lacking the long speed and shake n bake moves but getting the job done.

There were several instances in Week 2 where teams gave backups extended run with the 1st-team to see how they'd fare. Before we assume Hunt is going to supplant Ware, let's see what the carry distribution looks like in Week 3 when teams are treating it as the "dress rehearsal" for opening weekend. Hunt will clearly have a role, but I wouldn't want to have to define how substantial at this point.

In any case, it's clearly going to be a RBBC.
