Kendall Hunter is a wild card for the 49ers this season. Last season, he averaged 5.2 yards per attempt on 72 rushes before he tore his Achilles’ tendon Week 12 in New Orleans. Only five running backs had better yards-per-carry averages last season – C.J. Spiller, Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles and Andre Brown.
Hunter currently is on the Physically Unable to Perform list, but he runs around on the sideline like he’s 100 percent healthy. Yesterday, he ran about 20 40-yard sprints dragging a heavy chain from his waist. Next, he did agility drills, cutting around cones.
Predict how many times he’ll rush the ball this season, how catches he’ll make, how many yards he’ll gain and how many touchdowns he’ll score.
