Draft note
by John Paulsen
In the final 10 games of last season, Chubb averaged 19.5 touches for 97 yards and 0.80 touchdowns. That works out to 15.5 points per game (half-PPR formats) which would have been good enough for the No. 10 per game average at his position. Chubb would be a no-brainer first round pick if not for the arrival of Kareem Hunt, who could be a headache once he returns from his eight-game suspension in Week 10. Owners who draft Chubb should expect excellent production for the first half of the season but need to be prepared for his numbers to take a hit down the stretch.

CLE RB Nick Chubb - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Once Nick Chubb was given the reigns to the backfield last season, he was instant gold. He picked up his first start in Week 7 and from then on, he scored eight touchdowns in his first seven games. He had 70+ yards in every game but one (the final game of the season where he received less touches), averaging 16.6 half ppr points per game over the final eight weeks. He also received 15+ touches in every start but two as a rookie.

Fantasy Downside
The obvious downside this season is the addition of Kareem Hunt. Chubb would be an easy first-round selection without the presence of Hunt, but his signing makes things difficult. Hunt is talented enough to be an RB1 on his own, so having two backs with this type of talent complicates their fantasy values. Then there’s also Duke Johnson in the same backfield, and although he’s requested a trade, he remains on the team and could just add to the committee backfield in Cleveland.

2019 Bottom Line
The good news for Chubb is Hunt is suspended for the first eight games of the season. This gives Chubb RB1 value for the first half, giving him plenty of value to be drafted early. With Odell Beckham Jr. also joining the squad, it should open up the offense for more explosive plays all around. Chubb will be a decent selection near the end of the second round, where his current ADP sits.
