Chiefs rookie RB Kareem Hunt third-string on depth chart

For those thinking rookie running back Kareem Hunt would be a threat to Spencer Ware this season, Hunt seemingly has a lot of ground to make up in the preseason.

The Chiefs released an initial depth chart ahead of their preseason opener, and Hunt isn't even the back-up. Ware is the starter, followed by Charcandrick West on the second team and Hunt on the third team. Obviously, this can change as the preseason progresses, but it's at least an initial sign that Ware's hold on the starting job is strong right now.

Fantasy Impact: 

Hunt has been generating some buzz, but Spencer Ware isn’t going to go gently into that good night. Since becoming a Chief, Ware has averaged 4.63 YPC on 286 carries, and his 13.5 yards per catch was the second most of any running back with 30-plus receptions in 2016. It’s more likely that Hunt finds a role on passing downs, potentially replacing Charcandrick West.
