News: 5 days agoHubbard rushed the ball 14 times for 45 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Titans. He added five receptions on five targets for 47 yards.
Spin: Miles Sanders saw an increased workload in the loss, but Hubbard's opportunity was largely undisturbed. He accounted for the Panthers' only touchdown on a five-yard run midway through the third quarter, but the majority of the rest of his production came as a pass catcher. That allowed him to rack up his highest yardage total from scrimmage this season. Despite fairly steady opportunity, Hubbard is likely to remain reliant upon receiving work and touchdowns to post significant performances.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Hubbard is entering his third NFL season positioned as a change-of-pace/backup option behind new Carolina lead back Miles Sanders. Hubbard made some noise as a rookie with 786 yards and six TDs on 197 touches, but even with Christian McCaffrey traded away early on last season, he took a back seat to D'Onta Foreman and was limited to 637 yards and two TDs on 109 touches. Hubbard, a 2021 fourth-round pick, has no standalone value and, while he could flirt with flex appeal in the event of a Sanders injury, minimal upside. The 24-year-old is barely worth bench consideration.
