Chubb ran the ball three times for 25 yards in Sunday's 38-14 loss to the Chargers.
Chubb was on the field for just seven offensive snaps, though his production -- 8.3 yards per carry -- didn't go unnoticed by his head coach. During his Monday press conference, Hue Jackson suggested that the Browns need to give Chubb more opportunities in the rushing game. The rookie running back hasn't carried the ball more than three times in a game this season, but his 16 attempts for 173 yards and two touchdowns overall suggests he deserves more work. We'll see if Chubb's work load increases on Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Chubb carried three times for two yards and failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's 12-9 overtime win against the Ravens.
Despite Chubb's two-touchdown, 105-yard performance Week 4, the rookie running back didn't see an increase in work Sunday, as expected, and was shut down during the rare times when he did touch the ball. He did, however, see more field time, as he increased his snap count from three to 11. Chubb hasn't garnered more than three touches in any week this season, and that doesn't figure to change with Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson firmly ahead of him on the depth chart.
Chubb could be bound for more carries in Sunday's game against the Ravens after rushing for 105 yards and two touchdowns on his three totes in the Week 4 loss to the Raiders, Patrick Maks of the Browns' official site reports.
Despite logging only three offensive snaps in the contest, Chubb's pair of explosive scoring jaunts earned him NFL Rookie of the Week honors. With veteran Carlos Hyde locked in as the Browns' lead runner and Duke Johnson handling most of the passing-down work, Chubb hasn't mustered more than three touches in any contest this season. Any effort to get Chubb more work would likely come at the expense of Hyde, who has scored five touchdowns but is averaging a meager 3.4 yards per carry across 83 attempts this season.
Chubb carried three times for 105 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 45-42 overtime loss to the Raiders.
Virtually all of Chubb's production came on long touchdown runs of 63 and 41 yards in the second and fourth quarters, respectively. He was much more effective than starter Carlos Hyde, but hide still finished with 22 carries and a touchdown of his own. Hyde should dominate the touches again next Sunday against the Ravens, but Chubb could enjoy a few extra carries after this electric performance if the former struggles again.
Chubb ran the ball two times for 14 yards during Sunday's 21-18 loss versus the Saints.
Though Chubb wasn't involved in the offensive game plan save for his two carries, he looked impressive when he touched the ball, gaining six and eight yards, respectively. Barring an injury to starter Carlos Hyde, the rookie out of Georgia likely won't see much more work going forward than he did Sunday, but the potential is there, making him a must-own in dynasty formats.
