2021 Fantasy Outlook
Hubbard's huge sophomore year in 2019 put him on a lot of dynasty radars, but his inability to repeat the performance in his final year of college cost him, and he fell to the Panthers in the fourth round. The Oklahoma State product does offer some traits that could make him very productive in a lead role, as his vision, elusiveness and balance through traffic should allow him to get through holes and to the second level of the defense on a fairly consistent basis in the NFL. Hubbard may not have the power or burst to rack up significant yards after contact, and a 4.50 40 at his pro day wasn't great for a guy who is on the thin side (6-0, 210) for his position. Filling the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind a player like Christian McCaffrey creates a lot of clarity for Hubbard's role and touch volume. When McCaffrey is healthy, the rookie will barely touch the ball. But if CMac battles injuries as he did in 2020, the rookie could take on Mike Davis' role from last year. Read Past Outlooks

September 20, 2021
Hubbard rushed eight times for 10 yards in Sunday's 26-7 win over the Saints.
ANALYSIS
Hubbard was handed a decent workload despite Christian McCaffrey finishing with 29 touches. However, Hubbard playing a quarter of Carolina's 76 overall offensive snaps came partially as a result of McCaffrey missing a couple drives while dealing with cramps, Joseph Person of The Athletic reports. After hardly getting anything going with his carries Sunday, Hubbard will hope to make a bigger impact if called upon in Thursday's upcoming game versus the Texans.
