Fantasy Football Outlook: Love Hunter’s game and while he’s been rock solid when called upon in his first two years, an Achilles injury against the Saints ended his season.

It remains to be seen what will happen with Hunter in San Francisco when his contract comes up in a few years, but if Marcus Lattimore can make a full recovery, I have to wonder whether the 49ers will resign him in a few years. For now we should expect Hunter to make a full recovery of his own, and remain the backup to Frank Gore.

Hunter has the skills to be a starting tailback in the NFL, but he will likely, at best, be the main option in a two back committee, down the road. As long as Hunter is back in practice by camp, we should like him as a hand-cuff option for Gore, in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections

Early in the off-season I liked Kendall Hunter as a possible breakout player, but with the additions of Brandon Jacobs and especially LaMichael James, the jets have cooled on his upside. Frank Gore is expected to see a reduced workload and recently Jim Harbaugh said he might keep as many as six running backs.

Don’t look for it to happen, but hold four is a reality, and if you look at how Harbaugh ran his committee at Standford (when Toby Gerhart left) he will likely use a three or four headed attack. Hunter is likely to see a few more carries than last year because he does a good job in pass protection but Jacobs and Gore will likely get most of the red-zone work and James will cut into third-down opportunities.

At this time, Hunter will need some running backs to get banged up before he’s worth inserting into a flex spot on your squad.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

While Kendall Hunter will replace Brian Westbrook on the 49ers roster, some have gone as far as to compare Hunter to the one time Eagles’ star in his overall size and style of play.If Hunter should ever enjoy the success Westbrook had in the pro’s, it will probably take him a couple of seasons before he’s ready to compete for a starting job and that makes sense when you figure Frank Gore is on this team, and the veteran is looking healthy coming of an injury.

Hunter will probably get work in on third down duties this season as Gore will see a majority of the touches, and his main backup will probably be Anthony Dixon. If Gore should suffer another injury, Hunter could be a fantasy relevant running back as we saw Westbrook find some success in the final month of last season.
