2018 Fantasy Outlook
The gruesome knee injury Chubb suffered on national television at Georgia as a sophomore still casts a shadow over his resume, but the 5-11, 227-pound power back proved the last two seasons that he still has plenty to offer an NFL club even if he doesn't quite have the same explosiveness he once did. Chubb's low center of gravity, pad level and outstanding balance allow him to plow through traffic and pick up yards after contact, so he could be a goal-line weapon in the pros. He doesn't have breakaway speed and hasn't shown much ability as a receiver, however, likely limiting his role to early downs and short yardage. Drafted 35th overall, he joins a crowded backfield that also has receiving specialist Duke Johnson and former 49ers lead back Carlos Hyde - a situation that likely will limit Chubb's touches as a rookie unless he significantly outplays Hyde. Chubb did show a great deal of improvement between his final two years at Georgia, and if he makes another leap heading into 2018 and regains more of the burst and quick-cut ability he flashed prior to his injury, he could push Hyde right out of the picture.

Extends rushing touchdown streak
RBCleveland Browns
December 9, 2018
Chubb rushed 13 times for 66 yards and a touchdown while adding four catches for 17 yards on six targets in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Panthers.
ANALYSIS
Chubb extended his touchdown streak to five games, turning a 20-17 deficit into a 23-20 lead early in the fourth quarter. He's carried the ball just 23 times over the past two weeks after logging 18-plus carries in each of the previous five, but the minor questions about Chubb's workload are overshadowed by his major scoring ability. Up next for the rookie running back is a Week 15 date with second cousin Bradley Chubb and the Broncos.
