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.

Bottled up
RBCleveland Browns
December 30, 2018
Chubb totaled 24 rushing yards on nine carries in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Ravens. He added two receptions for minus-4 yards.
ANALYSIS
Chubb was bottled up by one of the best rushing defenses in the league, leaving him four yards shy of breaking the 1,000-rushing-yard barrier. Considering he had only 125 yards on the ground through six weeks, it's clear Chubb came on strong in the second half of the season after Carlos Hyde was traded. Even with a disappointing final game, Chubb clearly can work as a featured workhorse back, and he will almost certainly enter the 2019 season with that role for the Browns. The only downside to his game thus far is his lack of activity in the passing game, as he only surpassed 40 receiving yards twice this season.
