Chubb was supposedly progressing but won't be able to go on Thursday night. With Hunt on IR now, the RB duties will fall on Johnson and Felton. The general feeling is Johnson will be the early down back with Felton more of the change-of-pace and pass-catching back. But at this point, it's a wait and see with the situation. Both are worth a pick up this week if you're in a bind but the workload split remains to be seen and the matchup against the Broncos could prove to be tough as well.
CLE RB Nick Chubb - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 vs. Cardinals
Chubb is coming off a big game against the Chargers, where he rushed 21 times for 161 yards and one touchdown. He also caught his lone target for nine yards. Chubb continues to put up absurd efficiency, averaging 5.8 yards per carry while posting 17.5 fantasy points above expectation, which ranks fourth among running backs.
While the Cardinals rank eighth in aFPA to running backs, they haven't faced a running game as good as this yet. The Browns rank second in adjusted line yards, which means that their offensive line is elite at run-blocking. We've also seen Arizona give up efficient games to Darrell Henderson Jr. (6.4 YPC) and Dalvin Cook (6.0 YPC). Chubb looks poised for another productive week.
