News: 6 days agoChubb carried the ball 22 times for 130 yards in Sunday's 13-10 win over the Lions. He added two receptions for 14 yards and a touchdown.
Spin: Chubb returned from a one-game absence and matched his highest carry total of the season. He had six double-digit gains and progressively picked up more chunk yardage as the game moved along. Chubb also made his mark in the receiving game, posting his third multi-catch effort of the campaign as well as his first receiving touchdown since the 2018 season. He's now topped 100 rushing yards in four of his last five games, two of which came while he was sharing the backfield with Kareem Hunt (calf).
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Chubb enters his fourth NFL season as the lead dog in a Cleveland backfield that also includes standout Kareem Hunt. Chubb missed four games in 2020, but was very productive in 11 full regular season games with Hunt. He racked up 184 carries and 19 targets and only three RBs scored more fantasy points during the span. Aside of a rough Week 1, Chubb finished the other 10 games he played in full as a top-22 fantasy back. We know Chubb is a terrific rusher (his career 5.23 YPC and 2.28 YAC both rank second among qualified RBs), but we also saw an all-important boost in targets down the stretch last season (16 in his final four games). The 25-year-old will operate behind arguably the league's best offensive line and is a top-10 fantasy RB in all formats.
