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, who 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. With the trade of Duke Johnson, Chubb may also get more work in the passing game.The backfield is Chubb's until further notice. (August 9)

Browns | Dontrell Hilliard ready for bigger workload (Tue Aug 13, 12:35 AM) - Cleveland Browns RB Dontrell Hilliard is in line to begin the season behind RB Nick Chubb on the depth chart following the trade of RB Duke Johnson (Texans), at least until RB Kareem Hunt returns from an eight-game suspension.

Our View: Hilliard is a player the Browns like and he's certainly got the explosive capability to be dangerous in the open field. We'll see him work into the mix behind Chubb.
