Summary

Chubb's first six games saw him carry the ball no more than three times in any game. But he showed enough promise that the team traded Carlos Hyde to clear the way for Chubb. The rookie from Georgia took over as the lead back and showed incredible ability. He had three games of 100+ yards and three more with 80+ yards. Chubb also caught 20 passes, which was two-thirds of his entire total in college. Kareem Hunt will factor in eventually, but Chubb's 2018 play and Hunt's suspension will keep the backfield free for long enough to give Chubb the chance to step up from his rookie year production. Duke Johnson will also be a factor in the passing game, but Chubb performed well enough last year to push Johnson down to career lows in carries and receptions. The backfield is Chubb's until further notice. (May 5)

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake a force after contact (Mon Jul 8, 05:47 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is tied with Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb for first place with 3.7 yards after contact per attempt among the 54 NFL backs with 100 or more carries when they've been contacted at or behind the line of scrimmage since 2016, per Pro Football Focus. The league average among the group is 2.3.

Our View: It's kind of a surprise given that Drake is not a big back (like Chubb) but it does highlight how slippery the young runner is. We'll see how much new OC Chad O'Shea uses Drake in 2019 as he always was underutilized under former head coach Adam Gase. Drake has a current ADP of RB24 (4.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.
