  Browns | Nick Chubb hits triple digits again    Sun Nov 22, 05:39 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 20 times for 114 yards in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles and he was not targeted in the pass game.

Footballguys view: Chubb had a long run to help put the game away, but Kareem Hunt got the touchdown to cap the drive. Chubb is a strong RB1 next week against the Jaguars.

  Browns | Nick Chubb posts 126 yards, TD in return    Sun Nov 15, 04:38 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed for a game-high 126 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Week 10 against the Houston Texans. He ripped off a 59-yard run late in the game, but stepped out of bounds on purpose at the 1-yard line so the team could kneel on the ball to run out the clock.

Footballguys view: Chubb is definitely back to his old self and the Texans run defense continues to be a target for fantasy lineups. Chubb and the Browns get the Eagles while Houston has the Patriots crowded backfield on the schedule next week.

  Browns | Nick Chubb activated off IR    Sat Nov 14, 12:41 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) on Saturday, Nov. 14, was activated off the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs can celebrate here. Chubb is arguably the best running back in the league and a must start if he's on the field. His first week back the Browns may put him on a snap count, but he's still got RB1 upside against the Texans on Sunday. Kareem Hunt goes back to being a valued backup and flex play for Fantasy GMs in Week 10.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) practiced without his knee brace Thursday, Nov. 12.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) was designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 9.

Footballguys view: We'll see what Chubb can do during practice this week. The Browns will use him as the featured back if healthy. That means he's a RB1 for Fantasy GMs upon his return and Kareem Hunt goes back to being a backup and flex option.

Footballguys view: Chubb isn't a sure thing for Week 10, but he is a must play if he is active, and his return isn't a reason to bench Kareem Hunt.

  Browns | Nick Chubb slated for Week 10    Mon Oct 26, 12:36 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) could return in Week 10 after the bye, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.

Footballguys view: That's good news for the Browns. They've lost WR Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) for the rest of the year so getting Chubb back will help. He should go back to being the no.1 back for the offense and then Kareem Hunt will resume his role as a high-value reserve running back.

  Browns | Nick Chubb out six weeks    Mon Oct 5, 12:37 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) will miss six weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament.

Footballguys view: Chubb left the game against the Cowboys with an MCL injury. The Browns now turn to Kareem Hunt as their top back and he's a must-start RB1 for Fantasy GMs while Chubb is out. D'Ernest Johnson will serve as the backup to Hunt and should be considered a deep flex play (at least) for the near future.

  Browns | Nick Chubb has huge day in home win    Sun Sep 27, 05:39 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb ran 19 times for 108 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 against the Washington Football Team and he added a two-yard catch on his only target.

Footballguys view: Chubb is going to be a good play as long as the Browns are having a good day. In this case it was Dwayne Haskins turnover spree that fueled the Browns to a win and gave Chubb multiple opportunities to score - which he took advantage of. The Cowboys defense will se Chubb charging at them next week.

  Browns | Nick Chubb runs wild on Bengals    Fri Sep 18, 01:34 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb had 22 carries for 124 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday, Sept. 17. He also caught one pass for nine yards.

Footballguys view: Chubb always took more than one man to bring him down and he wore down the Bengals defense as the night went on. He had one score taken away by reply and then was stonewalled by the Bengals defense at the goal line only to have Myles Garrett force a Joe Burrow fumble and give Chubb the makeup score. He'll be a boom/bust RB2 against Washington next week.

  Browns | Nick Chubb not worried about touches    Fri Sep 4, 01:13 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb said Thursday, Sept. 3, that his top priority is helping the team win and not how many touches he gets. 'I am ready for whatever happens,' Chubb said in a Zoom media interview. 'I am ready for the team. ... We do have a lot of playmakers on the field. Hopefully we can utilize everyone the right way and make teams have to choose one or another. That will definitely help us out.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs are worried about touches for Chubb. Kareem Hunt is a talented backup and will get his fair share of work in the Browns backfield. However, Chubb is the lead back and should produce enough to be a low-end RB1 for Fantasy GMs in 2020.

  Browns | Nick Chubb cleared to return    Sat Aug 22, 01:28 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (concussion) on Saturday, Aug. 22, cleared concussion protocol and is expected to return to the field later in the day for practice.

Footballguys view: That was about as quick a return from a concussion as you could hope for. As long as he gets through camp without another head injury, this shouldn't affect how we view Chubb in drafts.

  Browns | Nick Chubb should return soon    Thu Aug 20, 01:19 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (concussion) is participating in meetings and should return to practice in the near future, according to running backs coach Stump Mitchell. Chubb has not been experiencing any headaches.

Footballguys view: Good news for the superstar running back here. Chubb is the lead back for the Browns but Kareem Hunt is going to have a role as well. Fantasy GMs are expecting Chubb to be a RB1 and drafting him late in the first round. Hunt is more of a flex play in PPR leagues but certainly has RB1 upside if Chubb has to miss time.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb (head) is being evaluated for a concussion after he left practice early Monday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation for more news. A concussion could have lingering effects if Chubb tries to come back too soon. Chubb is one of the best running backs in the game today and should be a late first- or early second-round pick in every fantasy draft.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb has averaged 4.2 yards per carry after contact over the last two seasons.

Footballguys view: Chubb is set up for the best year of his career with a wide zone run-based offense under new head coach Kevin Stefanski and big upgrades at both tackle positions. He's worth a late first round pick.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt's role to grow in 2020    Thu Jun 4, 06:09 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt's role in the offense will grow in 2020, according to offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt Wednesday, June 3. 'We have to find a way to put the best players on the field and the matchups that will come with that each week. Kareem is an extremely talented runner as a running back, and he is exceptional out of the backfield (as a receiver). He is fearless, and the selflessness of him blocking and lead blocking, he is just a football player who loves to play. We have to find ways to get him the ball.'

Footballguys view: Hunt is a reserve running back behind Nick Chubb but he could have plenty of fantasy value...especially in PPR leagues. He's a RB3/flex option for Fantasy GMs while Chubb is a RB1 in 2020.

  Browns | Cleveland may use top RBs together    Sun May 31, 01:02 PM

Cleveland Browns RBs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt probably will be on the field at the same time on occasion this upcoming season, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot.

Footballguys view: The Browns have a talented duo and using both just makes the most sense. Chubb will be the primary back and should be a fantasy force as a RB1 must-start every week. Hunt has flex appeal in PPR leagues because of how the team can use him as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Chubb has a current ADP of RB10 (2.02) while Hunt is going off the board at RB28 (5.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Browns | Nick Chubb unlucky inside the 20 last year    Thu May 21, 11:51 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb was one of four players to amass 50 rushing attempts inside the red zone in 2019 but scored only six times on those carries. Each of the other three backs with at least 50 such carries scored at least 11 times.

Footballguys view: The Browns need to get Chubb unlocked near pay dirt. They should do that this season as they spent a lot of time and resources on crafting a better offensive line. We mostly talk about that helping QB Baker Mayfield, but that will also benefit Chubb and the ground game.

  Browns | Nick Chubb stellar after contact    Thu May 14, 08:08 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb is the only running back since 2006 to average four-plus yards after contact per carry for his career, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Chubb has a great center of gravity and that gives him amazing contact balance. He is tough to bring down when he builds a head of steam and can bounce off would-be tackles with ease. Expect that to continue in 2020 in what could be the best season of his career.

  Browns | Nick Chubb taking it to defenses    Wed May 6, 11:22 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb has forced a league-high 110 missed tackles on rushing attempts since 2018 - making him only one of three backs to record at least 100 over that stretch - according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Chubb can run through or around defenders. Either way, Chubb is one of the best in forcing missed tackles. He's tough to bring down and there are plenty of fans who feel like he could be the next 2,000 yard rusher. That would obviously be a special season from Chubb, especially since teams don't run the ball that much anymore and Chubb is splitting time with Kareem Hunt. Chubb is one of the best in the game and is a clear RB1 for Fantasy GMs and a late first-round pick in any format.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb was tied for the league lead, with Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones, with 32 broken tackles last season.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt's return dinged Nick Chubb    Sun Apr 5, 06:11 PM

Footballguys view: Hunt will be there from Week 1 this season, so Fantasy GMs need to make an adjustment to the expectations for Chubb. He's still a RB1, but Hunt can perform well enough to be a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues.
