2013 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Aug-28-2013 by Shawn Larabee

Updated (8-26): Three rushes for 13 yards doesn't sound like much; It isn't. But it's how Hunter, who suffered a season-ending Achilles injury last season, looked physically during his preseason debut that matters. Apparently he looked "sharp" enough to reclaim his backup duties behind Frank Gore. LaMichael James remains in the mix, but Hunter is the handcuff Gore owners should target.

Preview - Hunter is another Achilles tendon victim. He tore his in November and was finally cleared to participate in team drill August 10. If he's healthy by the start of season, he should supplant LaMichael James for second chair RB duties. With an injury so severe, it's a big if.

18.05 FFToolbox - Brian Murphy - It probably wasn't the best idea to pick a running back who is eight months removed from popping his Achilles' tendon, but running back was dreadfully thin at this point, and this selection doesn't really cost me anything if Hunter can't regain his old form. If Hunter is healthy, it looks like he will share carries with Frank Gore and LaMichael James.

14.12 FantasyTaz - I am usually not a big believer in handcuffs and this pick wasn't made simply because I have Gore. I am high on Hunter as the guy to take over in SF when Gore is done and if fully healthy this year he should get a decent amount of touches and this team finds ways to get a good play-maker on the field. I think he has much more upside than LaMichael James.

13.10 FootballDiehards - Hunter and LaMichael James are expected to battle for carries behind Frank Gore. Hunter looked great before he tore an Achilles tendon. I'm hoping he's back at full speed, but James looked good down the stretch. Fingers crossed on this one.
