As the 2019 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
We’ll have to wait to see how Chubb and Kareem Hunt fit together. Hunt’s eight-game suspension should at least make Chubb the workhorse for the first half in an exciting young offense. Chubb handled 75.5 percent of the team’s carries after the Carlos Hyde trade, a share that would have led the league for the season. Chubb’s 17.6 carries per game over that span extrapolate to 282 over a full slate. He also beat Duke Johnson by seven targets over that span.

There’s too much offensive upside to be scared of Chubb. Draft him for the first half and play the trade market if Kareem Hunt worries you.
