June 20, 2018
Hunt (ankle) agreed to an injury settlement Wednesday and was waived from the Chiefs' injured reserve list.
ANALYSIS
Hunt didn't earn more than a single carry in any one game last season until Week 17, when starting running back Kareem Hunt sat out to rest up for the playoffs. The third-year back only received four carries in that affair before going down with an undisclosed ankle injury that ultimately prevented him from passing a physical with Kansas City this past May. Now free from IR, Hunt will immediately be available to sign with any team other than the Chiefs should he pass through waivers unclaimed.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Hunt has spent parts of his two NFL seasons on Houston's practice squad while also being activated to the main roster both years. His contributions have been limited to a productive couple of drives in a few games but the coaching staff trusts him. At least they did until a two-fumble game in Week 14 last season. Hunt is a small and shifty back who returns kicks, putting him in direct competition with 2016 draft pick Tyler Ervin. There was room on the roster for both backs during the second half of 2016, but it appears an injury will be needed for both Hunt and Ervin to break camp with the Texans.
Hunt was an undrafted free agent out of Purdue who didn't sign until November when the Texans added him to practice roster. Two weeks later, he was promoted to the active roster and played in the final seven games of the regular season and the playoff loss to Kansas City. The former Boilermaker is noted for his speed and elusiveness, which makes Hunt redundant in the backfield with 2016 fourth-round draft pick Tyler Ervin. Ervin is expected to be a returner on special teams, which may give him an edge when finalizing the opening-day roster. The question became would the Texans reserve roster spots for both, but they didn't, cutting Hunt after the fourth preseason game. He re-signed to practice squad one day after being released and will be on hand should any injuries crop up.
Reserve running back, long shot to make the roster.
