NFL Update: Nick Chubb Gives His Fantasy Owners a Huge Boost

While Nick Chubb’s fantasy value is limited in PPR (point per reception) due to how infrequently he is used in the passing game, he was still drafted as a top-10 running back across all fantasy football formats this preseason due to his excellent play as a starter in 2018.

Baker Mayfield and the Browns got off to a slow start to the 2019 season, but Nick Chubb helped Cleveland snap out of its slump with a big day in the team’s 40-25 road upset over the Baltimore Ravens. Chubb rushed for 165 yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries and also caught three passes for 18 yards. His 88-yard touchdown run put the Browns up 30-18 in the fourth quarter.

Coming into today, Nick Chubb had rushed for only 233 yards on 58 carries and caught 11 passes for 81 yards. He had scored one touchdown through his first three games.
