After reports came out indicating that Hunt signed in New Orleans, multiple sources backtracked and noted that while Hunt had a good visit there, he’s slated to meet with the Colts next.
In terms of fantasy value for Kareem Hunt, a landing in New Orleans is exactly the situation we would like to see him avoid. He’d be the 3rd string back behind Kendre Miller and Jamaal Williams – a far cry from any fantasy-relevant role he could find elsewhere. And once Kamara is back from his suspension, there’s a chance that Hunt could be cut from the team entirely.
With his next stop in Indy, Hunt could land in a much less crowded backfield there where he would presumably take over the passing down role. And if Jonathan Taylor would hold out for any reason, Hunt could suddenly be thrust into an RB1 role with the Colts – a much more fantasy-friendly landing spot than New Orleans.
