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.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed for 31 yards and one touchdown on nine carries against the Houston Texans in Week 13. He also caught three passes for 41 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: The Browns fell behind early in the game, so Chubb did not receive many carries. He still has recorded a touchdown in each of the last four games and can be considered a No. 2 running back all leagues next week.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb rushed 28 times for 84 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added three grabs for 44 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Chubb has relished the starting tailback job, and emerged as an RB1 in many fantasy formats since the trade of Carlos Hyde to the Jacksonville Jaguars back in mid-October. Chubb has scored a rushing touchdown in three straight outings, and he has both a rushing and receiving score in each of the past two games. Next up is a trip to meet the Houston Texans in Week 13.

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb has a great matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Chubb is coming off a breakout performance with a 20-176-1 line one the ground and a 3-33-1 line through the air. The Bengals has been one of the worst at defending RBs all year, and they have been the worst over the last five weeks. Running backs have rushed for 5.42 yards per carry over that stretch, and they've scored nine times in four games. Chubb is a good RB2 this week.
