Scouting report

HOU RB Akeem Hunt - 2017 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

As the Houston Chronicle recently reminded readers, in eight games last season after being promoted from the practice squad, Akeem Hunt flashed his athleticism and skill in a complementary role. The former Purdue standout rushed for 109 yards on 20 carries, caught three passes for 29 yards and returned nine kickoffs for 194 yards. He averaged 21.6 yards per return with a long return of 39 yards. Hunt rushed for a career-high 52 yards on eight carries in a road win over the Jaguars last season, all in the second half. Hunt is one of the fastest players on the roster with a 4.37 time in the 40-yard dash. And he's gradually put on some muscle, gaining about six pounds, and is now up to 204 pounds.

Fantasy Downside

The problem is the pecking order. At best, Hunt plays a complimentary role behind Lamar Miller and rookie D'Onta Foreman.

2017 Bottom Line

Assuming the players ahead of him on the depth chart remain healthy, Hunt won't be fantasy relevant. If that changes, he'll be waiting for you on the waiver wire in almost every redraft league.

HOU RB Akeem Hunt - Week 16, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Cincinnati
Lamar Miller has been battling a sore ankle and is questionable to play on Saturday night. If he can't go, look for a RBBC approach, making none of the Texans backs worthy of a fantasy start.
