2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Let me just start by saying that I think Nick Chubb is one of the most underrated players in the NFL. Since entering into the league in 2018, he's averaged better than 5.0 yards per carry in every season, and has yet to score less than 8 touchdowns. Despite splitting snaps with Kareem Hunt, and missing four games in 2020, Chubb churned out over 1200 total yards and tacked on 12 scores. His speed/power combination is one of the best in the NFL behind only Derrick Henry, and he similarly dominates late in games with Cleveland running out the clock, evidenced by his 7.2 yards -per-carry average in the 2nd half of games. His efficiency and touchdown scoring allowed him to finish in the top 10 in standard scoring leagues to with only 16 receptions.

So what's holding him back from grinding up the NFL even more than he has? Two words...Kareem Hunt. Chubb has the blessing (more rest) and curse (reduced touches) of having an All-Pro for a backfield mate. Chubb simply doesn't play on 3rd downs or clear passing situations, and his 18 targets last year put him around 70th among running backs. A slight dip in running efficiency would be a hit, but on the flip side, an injury to Hunt could let Chubb dominate touches. Clearly Chubb's value lies in standard leagues as long as Hunt is around, but a full season of health gives the former Georgia Bulldog a very good chance at a top-5 season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Browns hopeful to have Kareem Hunt in Week 12
Should practice this week
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 22, 12:33 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns coach Kevin Stefanski says he should be able to get Kareem Hunt and Jack Conklin back in practice this week. He said he’s hopeful they can face the #Ravens (Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: D'Ernest Johnson has filled in nicely while Hunt has been sidelined with a calf injury. Hunt hasn't played since Week 6 and his return would push Johnson back to a bench stash. Nick Chubb saw 22 of 30 running back carries for the Browns in Week 11.


Injury Nick Chubb appears likely to return Week 11
Missed Week 10 following positive COVID test
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 18, 11:30 pm

Cleveland Browns
Browns OC Alex Van Pelt said things are trending in right direction for guys still on COVID-19 list. RB Nick Chubb, RB/WR Demetric Felton and C Nick Harris are on the list. (Beacon Journal - Nate Ulrich)

FFToday's Take: To be clear, "trending in the right direction" is not the same as coming off the COVID list. Nonetheless, it would be a small upset if Chubb isn't cleared on Friday after testing positive over a week ago. Once he is activated from the COVID list, there's a good chance he will return to his usual workload - assuming his conditioning wasn't compromised by the virus. If he is his usual self, he has a chance to finish as the overall RB1 this week against the Lions.


Injury Nick Chubb, Demetric Felton ruled Out for Week 10
D'Ernest Johnson will start
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 12, 2:55 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns running backs Nick Chubb, Demetric Felton, John Kelly declared out Sunday against Patriots (Marla Ridenour on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The matchups isn't great but Johnson should get the bulk of touches at running back for Cleveland this week against the Patriots. New England has given up just 2 rushing TDs to running backs this season. Still, Johnson is likely to get at least 20 touches in this game.


Injury Browns RBs test positive for COVID
Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton could miss Week 10
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Nov 9, 12:52 pm

Cleveland Browns
Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) on Twitter: "Browns’ RBs Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton tested positive for COVID-19, sources tell ESPN. Both players are vaccinated, thus their status for Sunday’s game against New England remains in question. Each player would need two negative tests 24 hours apart to play." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: D'Ernest Johnson would slot in as the lead back against the Pats. It's a bad situation for the Browns, but Johnson impressed in Week 7 against the Broncos, running for 146 yards and a score in a dominant performance. He would be a borderline RB1 if Chubb is sidelined.


Injury Case Keenum will start at QB for Cleveland
Shoulder injury for Baker
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Oct 20, 10:36 am

Cleveland Browns

FFToday's Take: Baker Mayfield is dealing with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder but will sit out this short in hopes of being ready for Week 8 against the Steelers. The Browns are dealing with multiple injuries on the offensive front and will be without Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt in Week 7. Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) also remains a question mark.


Injury Browns rule out Nick Chubb for Thursday night
Baker Mayfield will practice on a limited basis Tuesday
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Oct 19, 1:17 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns Kevin Stefanski ruled out RB Nick Chubb for Thursday night's game against the #Broncos. Baker Mayfield (left shoulder) will practice on a limited basis today. (Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Browns are down Chubb and Kareem Hunt for Week 7 which means some combination of D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton will handle the running back duties. Felton is more of a pass catcher and more viable in PPR leagues while Johnson should handle the bulk of early-down work. The Broncos have given up the 4th fewest fantasy points to running backs.


Injury Kareem Hunt out multiple weeks
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 17, 12:04 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said RB Kareem Hunt's calf injury in the ballpark of 4-6 weeks, but he didn't get that exact number. (Nate Ulrich on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Baker Mayfield (shoulder) and Odell Beckham Jr. (shoulder) were also injured in this game leaving the Browns short-handed on a short week. Stefanski left open the possibility the Nick Chubb (calf) could be back for Thursday but that seems unlikely. D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton could be the running backs for Cleveland in Week 7.


Injury Nick Chubb ruled Out for Week 6
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 15, 12:27 pm

Cleveland Browns
#Browns RB Nick Chubb (calf) has been listed as OUT for Sunday’s game against Arizona. (Jake Trotter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Chubb missed practice all week with a calf injury before being ruled out Friday. Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before getting in limited work on Friday. He's expected to play and should get the bulk of the running back work. D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton have seen very limited work through five games.
