Browns activated the following from COVID-19 reserve:
DE Jadeveon Clowney
G Drew Forbes
S Ronnie Harrison Jr.
CB Troy Hill
RB Kareem Hunt
DT Malik McDowell
T Jedrick Wills Jr.
LB Mack Wilson
They also placed LB Elijah Lee on the list.
Chubb and Johnson have handled the load the last two weeks, and Chubb, especially, has been fantastic. Don't forget, Hunt was dealing with an ankle injury before hitting the COVID list. Reports say the ankle would have kept him out in Week 16, so Hunt is no lock to play in Week 17 as a result.
CLE RB Nick Chubb - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 at Steelers
Nick Chubb went off against the Packers, rushing 17 times for 126 yards and a touchdown while catching 3-of-4 targets for 58 yards. He's now finished as RB7 and RB5 in his last two games. Chubb remains one of the most efficient backs in the NFL (5.5 YPC) and he'll now get another exploitable matchup.
The Steelers rank 31st in schedule-adjusted fantasy points per game allowed to running backs, making this a smash spot for Chubb. The one concern is that Kareem Hunt has a chance to return to the lineup, but Chubb should still dominate the workload here. Fire him up as an elite RB1.
