Of course, this is provided they continue to test negative for COVID-19 this week, the tweet said. Without their WRs, the Browns ran the ball just 15 times with their stud backs and lost to the one-win Jets. It will be a tough matchup in Week 17 against the Steelers.
CLE RB Nick Chubb - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Nick Chubb looked set up for a massive stat line in Week 16 with the Browns missing most of their receivers due to COVID protocols and facing off against a weak Jets team. Things did not go according to plan. The Browns fell behind to the Jets and stunningly had Baker Mayfield throw 53 passes, resulting in a hugely disappointing 11-28 rushing line for Chubb, although he did punch in a touchdown to salvage his day. Now Chubb and the Browns will have a much tougher matchup against the Steelers in a critical divisional showdown. The Browns should be back at full strength for this one, which should benefit Chubb in opening up running lanes and getting scoring opportunities. Despite last week's dud, Chubb is a surefire starting option in leagues that are still playing in Week 17.
