Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt’s 246 yards from scrimmage were the most by any player making his debut since the 1970 merger. The 2017 NFL season kicked off Thursday night as the Chiefs shocked the New England Patriots 42-27 on the road. What are the implications of this game for your fantasy team? That,…

@colekev_FF had some great visualizations on twitter of Alex Smith's performance and how it was not dissimilar to Smith's normal performance in terms of being more aggressive downfield:
I happen to have Smith as my QB2 in 2 different 2 QB leagues (Dalton is my other QB in both leagues, and in one I also have Bortles). I'm thinking that this is a prime opportunity to sell high on Alex Smith, since the popular narrative seems to be that he's more aggressive since the drafting of Maholmes. Do you agree, and if so, who would you target? Guys I'm thinking of targeting are Bradford (easy schedule, more weapons, 2nd year in system with a full offseason), Palmer (?), Hoyer (good fantasy QB, familiar with Shanahan's system), Kizer (good weapons, improved offensive line, lots of rushing yards). Anyone else I should consider? @friscojosh any air yards darkhorse qbs?

I have Hunt in a 2 QB league and I recently saw a tweet from @friscojosh that shows that hunt went 1.02 in nffc draft! That's ridiculous to me, I am actively trying to trade him + wr3 for DJ or Bell. Would you trade him for one of your RBs in top 12 countdown?
I am concerned that he split snaps, curios to see if he continues to do so in upcoming weeks.

The league where he was selected that high (1.03) gets his points for week 1, guaranteed.
I wouldn't use the high stakes drafts as a reasonable gauge of value. Still you could probably quite a bit for him if you got him cheap prior to the Ware injury. I'd entertain offers.

Understood. Thanks for the clarification.
