  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Scores in finale

    Hubbard rushed nine times for 48 yards and caught both of his targets for eight yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Hubbard was productive despite seeing fellow tailback Ameer Abdullah lead the Panthers with 16 touches. The rookie's presence was felt early on, as Hubbard hauled in a two-yard touchdown to cap Carolina's opening drive. Afterward, he was efficient on the ground overall, helped by a long gain of 19 yards. With star Christian McCaffrey (ankle) playing just seven games this season, Hubbard was forced into an expanded role, starting 10 games. The fourth-rounder finished with 172 carries for 612 yards and five touchdowns while catching 25 of 37 targets 174 yards and another score. Given McCaffrey's injury history and hefty contract, the Panthers may try to trade him this offseason. Whether they find a taker or not, Hubbard proved to be a solid backup capable of starting if required during his rookie campaign.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Scores in defeat

    Hubbard rushed 17 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Saints. He also caught three of four targets for 13 yards.

    Hubbard scored the game's first touchdown by taking a toss 21 yards into the end zone to begin the second quarter. That play tied for Hubbard's second-longest rush of his rookie campaign and helped compensate for an otherwise difficult day on the ground. With 20 total touches, though, Hubbard was comfortably Carolina's most utilized tailback, with backup Ameer Abdullah getting the ball 10 times on offense. Despite having another tough matchup in Week 18 versus the Buccaneers, Hubbard's leading role gives him decent value.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Minimal production in loss

    Hubbard rushed six times for nine yards and failed to bring in his only target in the Panthers' 32-6 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

    Hubbard unsurprisingly found nearly non-existent running room during his few opportunities against a notoriously stingy Buccaneers defensive front. Game script eventually nullified the Panthers' ground attack for the most part, making it an utterly forgettable fantasy afternoon for the rookie. Despite his role as a de facto lead back to close out the season, Hubbard has seen single-digit carries in each of the last two games and has been an almost complete non-factor as a receiver since Week 7. He'll have another unenviable assignment in Week 17 in the form of a Saints team that's on par with Tampa Bay in terms of stopping the run.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Sees eight carries

    Hubbard ran for 40 yards on eight carries against Buffalo on Sunday.

    Hubbard's production was mostly driven by a 21-yard carry in the first quarter, with the other seven carries producing just 19 yards. He saw backup runner Ameer Abdullah poach four carries (though for just seven yards) and four targets, all of which were caught for a total of 48 yards and a touchdown. Hubbard might have more ability as a pure runner than Abdullah, but the latter seems to be distinguishing himself as the team's best pass-catching option at running back in the absence of Christian McCaffrey. The Panthers get a difficult matchup against Tampa Bay in Week 16.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Salvages day with rushing TD

    Hubbard rushed 10 times for 33 yards and a touchdown and wasn't targeted in the passing game during the Panthers' 29-21 loss to the Falcons on Sunday.

    Stepping back into a lead-back role for Christian McCaffrey (IR-ankle), Hubbard ended up with the same number of carries as Cam Newton and also saw game script turn against the ground attack in the second half. However, Hubbard was able to salvage his fantasy day with a 17-yard scoring scamper along the way. The rookie did prove capable of much better production during his earlier stint as the No. 1 back this season, so he could well see a bump in workload, albeit in a very tough matchup, against the Bills on the road in Week 15.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: In line for starting role

    Hubbard is in line to serve as the Panthers' starting running back after Christian McCaffrey (ankle) was ruled out for the season Monday.

    Hubbard served as the lead back in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, and he's in line to serve as the No. 1 running back across the final five games of the regular season. The rookie also filled in for McCaffrey when he missed five games due to a hamstring injury earlier in the season, and he totaled 89 carries for 329 yards and two touchdowns while securing 13 of 18 targets for 88 yards during that time. Ameer Abdullah should serve as Carolina's primary backup.

  • Panthers' Chuba Hubbard: Helps replace McCaffrey

    Hubbard rushed two times for six yards and didn't catch his only target in Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Dolphins.

    Hubbard didn't impact the box score much, but it's important to note that starting tailback Christian McCaffrey played just one second-half snap after injuring his ankle Sunday. McCaffrey was also seen in a walking boot after the contest, raising some concern over his status despite Carolina now entering its bye week. Should he be limited at all once the Panthers return, Hubbard and Ameer Abdullah would figure to assume much of McCaffrey's vacated workload, potentially elevating both of their stocks.
