While Hunter hasn't seen more than 11 carries in a game nor has he rushed for more than 50 yards in any contest, he could have some interesting sleeper potential in very deep leagues. While the Cardinals are holding the opposition to just 79 rushing yards per game, they are extremely vulnerable to the running back screen pass, ranking just 29th in the league and giving up just under 60 yards per game to the position.
While Hunter is not a recommended play, some of the deeper leagues leave owners with no other options. Hunter will continue to appear as a complementary back, but could take over late in the game if the 49ers jump out to a strong second-half lead.
