No. 6 Kareem Hunt vs Denver
Kareem Hunt is finally getting the touches and targets he deserves, we all see this. The Chiefs bounced back resoundingly against Cincinnati after the loss to New England and Hunt was the reason why.
Hunt is another back in this wave of two way players that prove so vital to their team. Sunday night was Hunt’s best outing of the year thus far with one touchdown on 15 carries finishing with 86 yards but being most effective out of the backfield. Hunt in the pass game proved big for Mahomes with five catches for 55 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Hunt has five rushing touchdowns and four receiving touchdowns. Consistency! Dual threat backs have been bad to Denver this year and Hunt is included on this. The Broncos struggled against Gurley, Crowell/Powell and Hunt as well as the pair of Buck Allen/Alex Collins.
I don’t see this week panning out different, we’re getting the last matchup for these two this season and Kansas City looks like they’ll run through the AFC West.
