by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Kendall Hunter favored to win backup RB job


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Despite the attention drawn by rookie Carlos Hyde and second-year pro Marcus Lattimore, running back Kendall Hunter remains the favorite to back up Frank Gore, reports CSNBayArea.com. The 49ers trust him in pass protection and he's averaged 4.6 yards per carry in three seasons backing up Gore.

"Until Hyde or Lattimore prove themselves, the 49ers’ coaching staff is going to stick with Hunter because they know he can be trusted," the report said.

Hunter is entering the last year of his rookie deal.


Kendall Hunter taking first-team reps


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) While veteran running back Frank Gore has been watching OTA practices this week, the 49ers have given first-team reps to Kendall Hunter according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat

"Kendall looks good," linebacker Patrick Willis said. "I've always been a fan of his since he came in. Him and Frank in that backfield, those two are very dangerous. (Kendall) is quick. He told me today, he said, 'Pat, you're everywhere.' I said, 'I've got to be when you're back there, you move fast.' I know he's going to be a big-time contributor for us this year."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lattimore sat out last season while rehabbing from a devastating knee injury. "The 49ers still don't know exactly what they have in Marcus Lattimore," the report said.


Kendall Hunter in line for contract extension?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) 49ers running back Kendall Hunter is entering the final year of his rookie deal and warrants consideration for a contract extension, according to CSNBayArea.com. While Hunter played fewer than 20 percent of the offensive snaps last season, he averaged 4.6 yards per carry and "appears to have value to the 49ers in the future" as part of a three-headed monster at running back, the report said.

49ers receive little from role players


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) The 49ers received minor production offensively from role players in Sunday's 23-17 loss the Seahawks in the NFC Championship game.

49ers get contributions from role players Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The 49ers received contributions from several role players during Sunday's win over the Cardinals in Week 17.

Quinton Patton caught two of three passes for 34 yards and had one carry for a gain of 26 yards, which was good enough to lead the team in rushing. Kendall Hunter had two carries for 13 yards while Anthony Dixon rushed for minus-5 yards on two carries and caught two passes for 27 yards. Offensive lineman Joe Staley also had one catch for a 14-yard gain while LaMichael James caught his only targeted pass for 12 yards. Garrett Celek was targeted once but finished without a grab.

Kendall Hunter breaks a long one


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) 49ers backup running back Kendall Hunter broke off a 45-yard run late in the win over Atlanta. He finished with three carries for 51 yards, his highest yardage total since Week 8.

Hunter was not targeted in the passing game. He'll visit the Cardinals in Week 17.


Garbage time could benefit Kendall Hunter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:28 pm ET) The 49ers are favored by 12 to 13 points Monday night over the Falcons, Week 16's biggest spread. This could be a blowout.

That's where Kendall Hunter comes in. The 49ers backup running back plays more when games get out of hand, like last week when he ran eight times for 40 yards against Tampa Bay. Spelling Frank Gore, he's scored three touchdowns while averaging 4.0 yards per carry.

The Falcons give up the 4th-most rushing yards (131.4). If San Francisco gets up big, Hunter could mop up against a demoralized unit. It's not a lot to hang your hat on, but it makes Hunter a desperation flex in deeper leagues.


49ers get minor contributions from four players Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) 49ers running back Kendall Hunter, running back LaMichael James, tight end Garrett Celek and wide receiver Mario Manningham all made it onto the stat sheet Week 15 at Tampa Bay.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) 49ers running backs Kendall Hunter and Anthony Dixon were both held under 15 yards on the ground during Monday's win over the Redskins in Week 12.

Hunter broke for a 4-yard run late in the fourth quarter for his longest gain of the night. He had eight carries for 12 yards (1.5 yards per carry). Dixon rushed for 13 yards on three carries.

Fellow running back LaMichael James was barely involved, as he failed to receive a carry in the running game. In the passing game, he finished without a catch despite being targeted once. Tight end Vance McDonald caught his only targeted pass from Colin Kaepernick for a 23-yard gain.

The 49ers will host the Rams in Week 13.

Several Niners make small offensive contributions on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) 49ers wideout Mario Manningham regressed Sunday from his 2013 debut, when he caught three passes for 30 yards in Week 10 against Carolina. He managed just one grab for 10 yards in the loss to New Orleans.

Tight end Vance McDonald had one catch for 10 yards, fullback Bruce Miller caught two passes for 8 yards, running back LaMichael James had two receptions for 8 yards and two rushes for 7 yards, and running back Kendall Hunter added one yard on four carries.


Meager production infects many 49ers on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Fullback Bruce Miller and wideout Kyle Williams both contributed one catch for the 49ers in their loss Sunday to Carolina. Miller gained 10 yards on his first-half snag while Williams went got five on his, also before intermission.

Kendall Hunter gets going late for Niners


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) 49ers running back Kendall Hunter had a 41-yard scamper during the Week 8 win over Jacksonville from London Sunday. He finished the game with a team-high 84 yards rushing. 

Hunter saw plenty of late action as the Niners ran out the clock. He finished with nine carries for 84 yards and no scores as Frank Gore scored twice. Hunter was not targeted in the passing game for the 49ers.

The 25-year-old RB had scored touchdowns in three of his previous five games for San Francisco. He won't score Week 9, however, as the Niners have a bye. They return Week 10 against the Panthers.


Kendall Hunter a solid Week 8 start


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2013) 49ers running back Kendall Hunter rushed for just 6 yards on four carries last week at Tennessee for a dismal Fantasy performance. That said, approaching Week 8 against Jacksonville from London, Hunter does have a rushing touchdown in three of his last five games.

So what can we expect from the backup to Frank Gore on Sunday from across the pond against the Jaguars?

Jacksonville is currently allowing the second-most Fantasy points per game in the NFL to opposing running backs. They are tied with the Redskins for allowing the most rushing touchdowns at eight. No team has allowed more than the 869 rushing yards the Jaguars have given up this season.

There should be plenty of yardage to go around between Hunter and Gore. Just last week, San Diego's Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead combined for 186 total yards and two touchdowns against Jacksonville.

Fantasy owners can look at Hunter as a solid low-end No. 2 or high-end No. 3 Fantasy RB for the Week 8 game from London.

49ers get minor production from role players in Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) The 49ers received minor offensive contributions from a few role players Week 7 against the Titans.

In the passing game, backup tight end Vance McDonald hauled in tipped pass from Colin Kaepernick for a 20-yard gain. It was his only catch of the day. Fullback Bruce Miller caught his only pass of the night for a gain of 9 yards. He also had one carry for 1-yard. Wide receiver Kyle Williams was targeted once and was held without a grab.

In the running game, Kendall Hunter had four carries for only 6 yards while Anthony Dixon took his only handoff of the day for a gain of 8 yards in a 31-17 victory.

Will Kendall Hunter score again?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/18/2013) 49ers running back Kendall Hunter heads into Week 7 at the Titans looking for his fourth touchdown in his past five games. Can he score again this week?

Hunter has a touchdown against the Colts, Rams and Cardinals in three of the past four games. He's only scored double digits in Fantasy points once over that span, which was against the Rams with 10 points.

That was the only time he had double digits in carries, and he's not getting enough work to be counted on in most Fantasy leagues. He also has just two catches on the season.

The Titans have only alllowed four running backs to score double digits in Fantasy points with five touchdowns allowed, and Frank Gore will continue to do the heavy lifting this week. Hunter is still No. 2 on the depth chart behind Gore.

We like Hunter as a handcuff option for Gore, but it's hard to start him in most standard formats even with his recent success. Keep him reserved against the Titans unless you're in a desperate situation or a heavy touchdown-only league in need of a flex.


Kendall Hunter finds end zone again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) 49ers backup running back Kendall Hunter found paydirt for the third time in four weeks in the win over Arizona. Hunter burst up the gut for a 6-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter.

Kendall Hunter's touchdown streak ends


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
