Chubb rushed 20 times for 122 yards and two touchdowns and caught five of six targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 32-28 loss to the Seahawks.
Chubb scored on a seven-yard run on the Browns' opening drive, and a major chunk of Chubb's yardage came two drives later when he ripped off a 52-yard run in the first quarter, setting up a 31-yard touchdown catch by Ricky Seals-Jones. His impressive day was topped off when the Browns took over on the Seahawks' 24-yard line after an errant punt. Chubb received the ball on two straight plays, rushing twice for 28 yards and a score. That gave the Browns the lead in the fourth quarter, but the Seahawks scored again and ended up with the win. Chubb's effectiveness remains impressive, as this was the third time in four games he recorded at least 100 scrimmage yards, and the one game he failed to do so, he finished with 99 yards.
Chubb rushed 16 times for 87 yards and caught his lone target for 12 yards in Monday night's 31-3 loss to the 49ers.
Chubb was highly productive when handed the ball, but the fact the Browns trailed significantly for most of Monday's game worked against him. Still, with help from a long run of 37 yards, Chubb again tallied at least 85 scrimmage yards, as he's done in all five games so far this season. A model of consistency on a Cleveland team lacking just that thus far, Chubb will look to make another strong impact Week 6 versus the Seahawks, but their sixth-ranked run defense makes his matchup less than ideal on paper.
Chubb rushed 20 times for 165 yards and three touchdowns while adding three catches for 18 yards on four targets in Sunday's 40-25 win over Baltimore.
Chubb came alive in the second half, scoring touchdowns from 14 and two yards out in the third quarter to turn a 10-10 tie into a 24-10 lead before exploding for an 88-yard score in the fourth. He had a short touchdown vultured by Dontrell Hilliard late in the fourth quarter, but Chubb's fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned about that considering the game was pretty much out of reach by then and Chubb had already done more than enough to make them happy. Finally living up to his lofty draft day valuation, Chubb should be fired up as an RB1 against the 49ers in Week 5.
Chubb carried the ball 23 times for 96 yards, adding 35 more yards on four receptions (seven targets) in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Rams.
Chubb was the only Brown to experience consistent success against a tough Rams defensive unit in the primetime showdown. Earlier this week head coach Freddie Kitchens said that he would try and get his feature back more involved by keeping him in on passing downs more often. He held true to his word, as Chubb received 100 percent of all running back touches after surrendering 11 total touches to other backs over the first two games of the season. The uptick in usage is a positive sign for the second-year back's fantasy owners, as true backfield workhorses are few and far between in today's NFL. Expect Chubb to continue to see the lion's share of touches against the Ravens on Sunday.
Coach Freddie Kitchens said Thursday that he's hopeful to find ways to get Chubb more touches in future games, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.
Kitchens wouldn't elaborate on how he might consider heightening Chubb's role on offense, though the coach did leave the door open for the running back to poach more third-down work from backups Dontrell Hillard and D'Ernest Johnson. Operating behind a suspect offensive line, Chubb has rumbled for 3.9 yards per carry and one touchdown to go with seven receptions for 46 yards while playing 65.5 percent of the Browns' offensive snaps through two weeks. With a tough opponent in the Rams on the docket Sunday, managing Chubb's workload may be a lesser concern than the prior two weeks as the 1-1 Browns look to keep up with the undefeated Ravens in the AFC North.
Chubb carried the ball 18 times for 62 rushing yards and one touchdown, while adding four receptions for 36 yards during Monday's 23-3 win against the Jets.
Cleveland's offensive line remains a question mark on an otherwise superbly talented roster, after highly touted guard Kevin Zeitler was traded to the Giants this offseason in exchange for defensive end Oliver Vernon. That rearrangement of capital may become evident against stout front sevens as the season wears on, and it sprouted up Monday with Chubb managing just 3.0 yards per carry on eight attempts while the game was within one possession. Week 3 presents a matchup against a Rams defense that was scorched by Christian McCaffrey for 209 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns in the opener, but bounced back by holding Alvin Kamara to 60 total yards on 14 touches Sunday.
Chubb rushed 16 times for 74 yards and caught three of four targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 43-13 loss to the Titans.
Chubb had a four-yard touchdown vultured by Dontrell Hilliard on the opening drive, and the Cleveland offense only got into scoring position one other time the rest of the way, with tight end David Njoku capping that drive off on a three-yard touchdown reception. While Chubb losing out on that touch near the goal line isn't what fantasy owners wanted to see, he ended up with a near-monopoly on rushing attempts (16 out of 20). Chubb's volume should climb if the Browns can play from ahead in future weeks, but this whole offense looked much less dangerous than anticipated in the opener.
Chubb won't suit up in Friday's preseason tilt against Tampa Bay, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports.
Cleveland's coaching staff clearly feels Chubb doesn't need any preseason reps despite entering just his second NFL season, so he's getting the same treatment as a number of star running backs around the league and will sit out the exhibition slate entirely.
Chubb has been ruled out for Saturday's preseason contest against the Colts, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
The Browns have elected not to risk the health of their starting running back at Lucas Oil Stadium during the team's second preseason tilt, lending reserves Kareem Hunt (suspension), D'Ernest Johnson, A.J. Ouellette and Trayone Gray additional opportunities for reps with Chubb sidelined. Chubb's next chance to appear in preseason action will come Aug. 23 against the Buccaneers.
Chubb caught a 14-yard pass and enjoyed a 12-yard run during Thursday's 30-10 win over Washington.
Chubb's touches came on back-to-back plays on the Browns' opening touchdown drive before he was rested for the remainder of the contest. Gaining some chunk yardage early is an encouraging beginning for Chubb, who's coming off of an exciting rookie campaign. He figures to be plenty busy during the first half of the season with Kareem Hunt serving a suspension, Duke Johnson in Houston, and little experienced depth behind him.
New coach Freddie Kitchens said Chubb won't back down from any backfield competition that arises in 2019, Keith Britton of Sports Radio 92.3 The Fan Cleveland reports.
Kitchens was responding to inquiries about the recent signing of Kareem Hunt, who is expected to serve a lengthy suspension before he can suit up for his new team in a regular-season game. It was an unexpected move from a franchise that already has Chubb and Duke Johnson in the backfield, especially after the former produced 5.2 yards per carry and 10 total touchdowns in 2018. Despite the brilliant rookie-year performance, the addition of Hunt creates some worries about Chubb's workload for the second half of the 2019 campaign.
Chubb totaled 24 rushing yards on nine carries in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Ravens. He also added two receptions for minus-4 yards.
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, it is clear that Chubb 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.
Chubb rushed for 112 yards on 19 attempts, adding two receptions for three yards during Sunday's 26-18 win against the Bengals.
Chubb has been an absolute workhorse since the trade of Carlos Hyde on Oct. 19, leading the NFL in percentage of team carries over that span (18.6 per game since Week 7, compared to 16 combined attempts over the first six weeks of the season). With an impressive outing against Cincinnati on Sunday, the rookie back now has consecutive 100-yard rushing performances for the first time in his career. He has, however, failed to find the end zone over the past two weeks, after racking up a ridiculous seven total touchdowns between Weeks 9 and 14. Upcoming in Week 17 is a tough divisional showdown against a Ravens defense that ranks top five in both rushing (994) and receiving yards (448) allowed to opposing running backs this season.
Chubb rushed 20 times for 100 yards during Saturday's 17-16 win over the Broncos. He failed to catch his lone target.
Chubb broke off a 40-yard run to essentially seal Cleveland's victory in the fourth quarter, as the rookie reached the century mark for the third time this season. Though he found success on the ground, his five-game touchdown streak came to end. He also wasn't involved in the passing game, failing to catch a pass for the first time since Oct. 21 against the Buccaneers. He'll look to keep up his impressive debut season next Sunday when the Browns square off against the Bengals.
Chubb rushed 13 times for 66 yards and a touchdown while adding four catches for 17 yards on six targets in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Panthers.
Chubb extended his touchdown streak to five games, turning a 20-17 deficit into a 23-20 lead early in the fourth quarter. He's carried the ball just 23 times over the past two weeks after logging 18-plus carries in each of the previous five, but the minor questions about Chubb's workload are overshadowed by his major scoring ability. Up next for the rookie running back is a Week 15 date with second cousin Bradley Chubb and the Broncos.
Chubb rushed nine times for 31 yards and a touchdown while catching all three of his targets for 41 yards in Sunday's 29-13 loss to Houston.
Chubb finally got his team on the board with a two-yard touchdown in the third quarter, cutting Houston's lead to 23-7. This game shows that the Browns still have a ways to go before they're consistently competitive against quality competition, but Chubb's nose for the end zone has allowed him to become a largely matchup-proof option in the latter stages of his rookie campaign. Chubb heads into a Week 14 meeting with Carolina having scored a rushing touchdown in each of the past four games, while also compiling two receiving scores over that span.
Chubb rushed 28 times for 84 yards and a touchdown while catching all three of his targets for 44 yards and another score in Sunday's 35-20 win over Cincinnati.
Cleveland raced out to a 28-0 lead in this one, with Chubb scoring two of the four touchdowns in that dominant stretch. His first score came via a one-yard run while the second was a spectacular 14-yard catch on which Chubb reached around a Bengals defender to secure the ball in the end zone. While the rookie running back averaged only 3.0 yards per carry, his two trips to the end zone more than made up for that poor average. Chubb's quickly emerging as one of the league's most productive running backs and should hold plenty of fantasy value in Week 13 despite a tricky matchup with a stout Texans defense.
Chubb rushed 20 times for 176 yards and a touchdown while catching all three of his targets for 33 yards and another touchdown in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Falcons.
Chubb caught a 13-yard score in the final minute of the first half, then exploded for the longest offensive touchdown in the league this season on a 92-yard scoring scamper in the third quarter. The rookie second-rounder is quickly making a name for himself in a starting role, but owners will have to look elsewhere at the running back position in Week 11 with Cleveland on bye.
Chubb carried the ball 22 times for 85 yards and scored a touchdown during Sunday's 37-21 loss to the Chiefs. He also caught his only target for five yards.
Since taking over the starting job for the jettisoned Carlos Hyde in Week 7, Chubb has averaged 3.9 yards per carry and has yet to eclipse the century mark. However, his workload and knack for finding the end zone makes him a solid play in fantasy formats, especially considering no one on Cleveland's roster is challenging him for carries. The rookie running back will look to keep it up in Week 10 against a Falcons defense that allows 112 rushing yards per game.
Chubb ran for 65 yards on 18 carries and added 10 yards on two receptions during Sunday's 33-18 loss to Pittsburgh.
Cleveland continues to feed Chubb following the trade of Carlos Hyde, with 18 carries in each of his two starts after just 16 carries during the season's first six games. The rookie looks as though he'll be given every opportunity to develop in a season that is fading fast, and he should enjoy a more favorable matchup next Sunday against a Kansas City run defense surrendering 5.2 yards per carry, a full yard more than the Steelers'.
