The Chicago Bears left open the possibility of pursuing free agent running back Kareem Hunt, who was released by the Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 1 after video surfaced of Hunt shoving and kicking a woman in the hallway of his Cleveland residence.

Hunt is on the Commissioner Exempt List and would need to be reinstated before he could sign with any team.

Fantasy Impact:

HC Matt Nagy has a relationship with Hunt dating back to his days in Kansas City. The Bears will face a decision on Howard as he reaches the final year of his contract. The story added nothing is imminent in regard to bringing in Hunt, who is subject to discipline once a team does sign him.

Scouting Report

Week 13 at Oakland Raiders

UPDATE: Kareem Hunt has been released by the Chiefs and placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt List. He is unlikely to play again this season.

Original Outlook

Kareem Hunt finished with 111 total yards (70 rushing, 41 receiving), while also finding the end zone. He now has a touchdown in every game but two this season as well as at least 80 yards in all but two games. He's a big factor in the Chiefs' high-powered offense, and should continue to produce at a high rate.

He gets a favorable matchup this week against the Raiders who have allowed at least 110 rushing yards to backs in every game but two this season. In fact, Oakland is allowing the most rush yards per game (151.4) as well as the fifth-most yards per carry (4.9). Hunt can be viewed as a strong must-start RB1 option.
