  Giants | Two skill players work out for Giants    Mon Oct 29, 05:15 PM

Free-agents QB Connor Cook (Panthers) and RB Akeem Hunt (Chiefs) worked out for the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: The Giants are just updating their emergency list here. A fourth-round pick of the Raiders in 2016, the team moved on from him in early September this year. He wound up with the Panthers for about a month after that until getting released from their practice squad about three weeks ago. Hunt is an all-purpose back who can work well as a runner in space or a receiver out of the backfield. He was originally picked up by the Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2015.

  Chiefs | Akeem Hunt waived    Tue May 8, 05:56 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Akeem Hunt was waived with a failed physical designation Tuesday, May 8. TE Alex Ellis was claimed off waivers from the New Orleans Saints in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: Hunt needs to get healthy before he can latch on with another team. If he gets over the ankle injury then we could see a team take a flier in camp on the all-purpose back.

  Cowboys | Byron Jones fined    Sat Nov 11, 10:31 AM

Dallas Cowboys FS Byron Jones was fined $12,154 by the National Football League for illegal actions during Week 9's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He was given an unnecessary roughness penalty on an Akeem Hunt kickoff return late in the second quarter and was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct after taking off his helmet on a Chiefs touchdown on the final play before halftime, with the 15-yard penalty taking effect at the beginning of the third quarter.

  Chiefs | KC cuts C.J. Spiller for third time    Sat Sep 16, 12:57 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB C.J. Spiller was released Saturday, Sept. 16. RB Akeem Hunt was promoted from the practice squad to replace him on the roster.

Footballguys view: Akeem Hunt, not to be confused with starter Kareem Hunt, was undrafted out of Purdue in 2015. He's a good all-purpose back who could get some work as a change-of-pace option for the Chiefs.

  Chiefs | Akeem Hunt lands with Chiefs    Tue Sep 5, 09:26 AM

Free-agent RB Akeem Hunt (Texans) was signed to the Kansas City Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Sept. 5, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Hunt is a good all-purpose back who can contribute as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. We'll continue to monitor his career, but only in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Texans | Akeem Hunt could be on roster bubble    Sat Jul 1, 09:54 AM

Although he is considered the team's best kickoff returner, there is no guarantee that Houston Texans RB Akeem Hunt will make the 53-man roster due to the club's crowded backfield situation.

Footballguys view: Hunt is a good (not great) all-purpose back who can be used as a runner or receiver. The Texans added D'Onta Foreman in the 2017 NFL draft, and the position was already cramped behind Lamar Miller with guys like Alfred Blue. Throw in 2017 UDFA Dare Ogunbowale (Wisconsin) and you can see why Hunt may not make the 53-man roster.

  Texans | Akeem Hunt promoted    Sat Nov 12, 01:52 PM

Houston Texans RB Akeem Hunt was added from the team's practice squad Saturday, Nov. 12.

Footballguys view: The Texans had to make the move with Jonathan Grimes (illness) out and not traveling with the team to play the Jaguars in Week 10. Hunt is a decent all-purpose back, but he won't be on the field much if at all for the Texans.

  Texans | Akeem Hunt impresses in finale    Thu Sep 1, 11:32 PM

Houston Texans RB Akeem Hunt had 12 carries for 44 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 27 yards and a touchdown in the preseason finale against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Sept. 1.

Footballguys view: Akeem Hunt is way too far down the depth chart to have an impact, but his upside might keep him on the roster. Lamar Miller is the best bet here and he's a solid RB1 this year.
