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.

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!!
Those are some bold comparisons dmac, we'll see how it plays out for him.
yeah those are some bold comparisons, i could see maybe a frank gore type. Ray Rice was way more athletic.

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.

I'm not quite sure what to make of it. Not a homer pick. Definitely uninformed. I've been shaking my head ever since. You don't need to be that informed even to know Fournette >>>>>>> Hunt.

Lots of people picked DJ in the first, over guys like DGB, Agholor, Dorsett, Duke and Perriman and others laughed at that notion...

I'm OTC at 1.06 for team 1 in sig and I'm debating pulling the trigger over MWill. I already took LF & Mixon @ 1.01 and 1.03
