Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 18 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the New York Jets on Monday, Sept. 16 and he added four receptions for 36 yards.
Huddle Up: Chubb just missed out on 100 total yards from scrimmage, which meant some fantasy fell short of bonus points. But at least he shook free for the 19-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, and he showed nice burst at times. The way the Browns are using Chubb early on has to frustrate fantasy owners, as it seems like they aren't ready to kick off the training wheels. He'll look for better production in Week 3 against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb is expected to see more work catching the football in 2019. 'I think he's going to be special like he was last year,' running backs coach Stump Mitchell said Wednesday, Aug. 21. 'He'll be used a little more in the passing game than he was last year. Nick just continues to improve on the skillset that he has, and I think he has a fantastic skillset.'
Huddle Up: Chubb will be a tremendous RB1 in most fantasy formats, and a bump in catches and receiving yards would boost his value in PPR formats significantly, at least until Kareem Hunt is ready to return midseason from his suspension.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb will not play in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: Chubb will be the starting running back this season and should receive a solid amount of touches each week. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues but could lose some work during the second half of the season when Kareem Hunt rejoins the roster.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb's four runs of 40-plus yards and 11 runs of 20-plus yards in 2018 both ranked second in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Chubb didn't take over as the starter until the seventh game of the season, but he still finished 10th in the league in rushing while averaging 5.2 yards per carry. With the backfield to himself for an entire season in 2019, RB1 production should be on tap for Chubb.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb ran nine times for 24 yards in the Week 17 game against the Baltimore Ravens and he added two grabs for minus-4 yards.
Huddle Up: Ouch. That wasn't the finish fantasy owners envisioned, but it was probably expected against a stingy defense fighting for their playoff lives. He ended up just missing the 1,000-yard mark, going for 996 rushing yards and eight touchdowns with 20 catches, 149 yards and two more scores. He will be an early-round fantasy pick in most leagues in 2019, looking like a legit low-end RB1 or must-have RB2.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb needs 28 rushing yards to become the second rookie running back in NFL history to achieve 1,000 rushing yards and 10 total touchdowns on fewer than 200 carries. After Week 17, Chubb will have started in only nine games.
Huddle Up: Chubb has taken the league by storm. The one downfall to his fantasy outlook is that he's not heavily involved in the passing game. Still, he's a late-first to early-second round draft consideration in 2019 drafts.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed for 112 yards on 19 carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Chubb has posted back-to-back 100-yard games and has received at least 13 carries in eight of the last nine games. He will have a tough matchup next week but can still be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb faces the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16, and the Bengals have allowed the fourth-most rushing yards and third-most rushing touchdowns this season.
Huddle Up: Chubb piled up 128 total yards and two touchdowns the first time these teams met, and another big performance could be on tap. He needs to be starting in all formats.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 20 times for 100 yards in a 17-16 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Chubb did most of his damage on a 40-yard burst late in the fourth quarter, and now that he has settled into the starting role, he is locked in as a RB2.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 13 times for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Carolina Panthers and he added four receptions for 17 yards.
Huddle Up: Chubb has looked good since taking over as the No. 1 tailback for the Brownies, emerging as a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option. The rookie is a strong long-term keeper option, too, and will be an early-round pick in fantasy leagues in 2019.
