The Kansas City Chiefs running back situation took an interesting turn due to the latest news involving Kareem Hunt. The team’s current starter finds himself facing potential discipline due to a recent video that’s come to light. It was first released by TMZ Sports and shows Hunt arguing with a woman at a Cleveland hotel in February of 2018. Hunt is seen pushing the woman and also goes on to kick her while she’s on the ground.
Following the video being released, ESPN’s Dan Graziano revealed the Chiefs have opted to send Hunt home from team facilities. He also reveals there’s a chance the running back winds up on the commissioner’s exempt list.
The news could point to Hunt missing Week 13 and possibly beyond that. In turn, this almost certainly means the Chiefs will turn to Spencer Ware as their starter. Ware has had his fair share of success in the NFL, although he’s seen limited action to this point, specifically throughout the 2018 season.
We’re going to take a look at the Week 13 fantasy football outlook for the Chiefs rusher and decide whether he’s a start or sit against the Oakland Raiders.
Should You Start or Sit Spencer Ware?
Assuming Hunt is indeed not active for the upcoming game against the Raiders, Ware becomes a very intriguing fantasy option. Although he’s tallied just 22 carries for 124 yards and one touchdown with 14 receptions for 165 yards on the season, he’s flashed upside even before this year.
Ware is a strong dual-threat option and back in 2016, he received an expanded workload rushing 214 times for 921 yards and three scores. He also added 33 receptions for 447 yards and two more touchdowns.
