Can Nick Chubb Break Into the Top Ten Running Backs?

A detailed look at Nick Chubb's fantasy prospects for 2019.


  1. Chubb’s work in both the passing and run game are likely to increase significantly.
  2. The offense around Chubb will create ample opportunities for touchdowns.
  3. Kareem Hunt is purely an in-case-of-injury plan. Duke Johnson Jr is a role player and may be traded before the season begins. Neither is a serious challenger to Nick Chubb.


Unlike last year, Nick Chubb will get the benefit of having the starting job from day one and will not be in a timeshare with Kareem Hunt. On paper, Cleveland is one of the better offensive units in the league. That said, Chubb is sure to have increased production and scoring opportunity as the Browns become a more prolific offensive unit. Considering he’s a lock to finish in the top ten among running backs, Chubb’s current ADP in the second round seems like a steal.
