The Cleveland Browns have signed RB Nick Chubb.

Related players: Duke Johnson, Carlos Hyde

Fantasy Impact:

Chubb will have to battle Hyde and Johnson for playing time this year, which may not lead to a ton of fantasy opportunities. Still, Chubb is our No. 54 ranked RB in standard leagues, which puts him in the range of guys like Corey Clement, Donta Foreman, and Ty Montgomery.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Carlos Hyde finished with 1,288 yards last season in San Francisco and comes to Cleveland via free agency. He’s listed as the team’s starter and should get most of the work on rushing downs. He’s proven to be an effective scorer, finishing with eight and nine touchdowns in the last two years, respectively.

Fantasy Downside

Hyde isn’t in an ideal situation for fantasy purposes. His rushing stats will likely be split with talented second-round rookie Nick Chubb. His receiving stats will be hurt by the much-better pass-catcher Duke Johnson. We don’t think Hyde will necessarily be bad, but the opportunities may not be there this season like they were last year when he had nearly 300 touches.

2018 Bottom Line

It took a lot of touches last season for Hyde to really make an impact, and we just don’t see how that will be possible this season with such a loaded backfield. If Hyde is going to have fantasy value it will need to be as a goal-line back, which we haven’t seen too much of, but there’s certainly an opportunity for that role here. Otherwise, he’s not much more than an RB3 option in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
