2020 Fantasy Outlook
Chubb delivered on the promise of his rookie season, falling just short of a rushing crown last year while demonstrating he can be a capable three-down option in a Browns offense that otherwise fell well short of expectations. He showed impressive power and balance through contact, tying Aaron Jones with a league-high 32 broken tackles on rush attempts, though it was Chubb's speed that really opened eyes. On an 88-yard touchdown run in Week 4, Chubb hit a top speed of 21.95 mph, the fourth-fastest time recorded by a ball carrier in 2019 - the gear he lost when he suffered his devastating knee injury in college apparently has returned. All told, Chubb was fourth in the league with an average of 3.0 yards after contact. Despite his outstanding numbers, with Kareem Hunt still in the fold and around for a full season, it's possible Chubb doesn't match the touch volume he got last year. He averaged 19.3 carries and 22.4 touches in the first eight games of the season, but only 15.2 rushes and 16.4 touches in the final five weeks once Hunt was comfortable in the offense. Workload is the only real concern for Chubb, however, and if the Cleveland attack around him improves, he could see more scoring opportunities to make up for any lost volume. Read Past Outlooks

September 17, 2020
Chubb rushed 22 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns and brought in his only target for nine yards in the Browns' 35-30 win over the Bengals on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Chubb and backfield mate Kareem Hunt put on a clinic against the porous Bengals front seven, with the two combining for an average of 6.6 yards per rush on 32 carries. For his part, Chubb saw a nice bump in workload from a Game 1 tally of 10 carries, comfortably outpacing Hunt in that department by 12 rushing touches overall after having trailed his teammate by three against Baltimore four days earlier. The third-year pro's 11-yard trip to the end zone in the first quarter opened the scoring on the night for Cleveland, and Chubb later added a one-yard touchdown in the latter stages of the third quarter to extend the Browns' lead to double digits. The fact the Week 2 rushing workload tilted much heavier in Chubb's direction had to elicit a sigh of relief from fantasy mangers for the time being, and the Georgia product will look to put together a successful encore at the expense of the Washington Football Team in a Week 3 home tilt on Sunday, Sept. 27.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Chubb opened his debut season buried on the depth chart behind Carlos Hyde, but after he exploded for 105 rushing yards and two TDs on three carries Week 4, it was only a matter of time before the rookie shoved the veteran aside. Chubb didn't see double-digit carries until Hyde was traded to the Jaguars in Week 7, but once he did he was a force, averaging 82.3 rushing yards per game and 4.7 YPC. The second-year pro didn't offer a lot as a receiver last year, though with Duke Johnson no longer around to handle passing-down assignments, Chubb and Dontrell Hilliard may need to step up some in that area. In his lead role, Chubb uses his power and surprising balance to stay on his feet through contact. Chubb's 29 broken tackles on rushes ranked fifth in the NFL, and he only saw nine carries inside the 5-yard line, a number that could rise significantly now that Cleveland knows what he's capable of. The offseason signing of Kareem Hunt raises questions, but he won't be eligible to return from suspension until Week 10. In any case, the trade for Odell Beckham Jr. should create a high-powered offense that gives Chubb plenty of carries near the goal line even if he eventually shares snaps.
The gruesome knee injury Chubb suffered on national television at Georgia as a sophomore still casts a shadow over his resume, but the 5-11, 227-pound power back proved the last two seasons that he still has plenty to offer an NFL club even if he doesn't quite have the same explosiveness he once did. Chubb's low center of gravity, pad level and outstanding balance allow him to plow through traffic and pick up yards after contact, so he could be a goal-line weapon in the pros. He doesn't have breakaway speed and hasn't shown much ability as a receiver, however, likely limiting his role to early downs and short yardage. Drafted 35th overall, he joins a crowded backfield that also has receiving specialist Duke Johnson and former 49ers lead back Carlos Hyde - a situation that likely will limit Chubb's touches as a rookie unless he significantly outplays Hyde. Chubb did show a great deal of improvement between his final two years at Georgia, and if he makes another leap heading into 2018 and regains more of the burst and quick-cut ability he flashed prior to his injury, he could push Hyde right out of the picture.
