  • Nick Chubb Ruled Out For Week 6

    Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb (calf) missed practice all week and has officially been ruled out for Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals. Kareem Hunt (wrist) missed two practices this week before returning on Friday, but he may draw a questionable tag for this weekend. Cleveland's backfield is clearly hurting, but Hunt would have clear RB1 upside against Arizona if he's active. If Hunt is out or limited at all, the Browns would be left with some combination of D'Ernest Johnson and rookie Demetric Felton in their backfield. It wouldn't be the ideal situation for a run-first Browns offense trying to knock off the lone undefeated team in the NFL. Stay tuned for Hunt's official status.

  • Nick Chubb Not Spotted At Friday's Practice

    Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb (calf) wasn't spotted at Friday's practice. Chubb has yet to practice this week, and it sounds like he'll be going down on Friday's report as a 'DNP' as well. There's still a chance he plays after a week of no practice, but that scenario should be considered a longshot. Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) returned to practice Friday- a good sign for his availability Sunday against the Cardinals. If Chubb is inactive, Hunt would immediately enter the RB1 discussion against an Arizona defense that has ceded the 12th-most rushing yards to the position.

  • Kareem Hunt, Nick Chubb Miss Thursday Practice

    Cleveland Browns running backs Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) and Nick Chubb (calf) both missed practice on Thursday, making it two days in a row that the star runners have not been able to take the field. Hunt was spotted working off to the side while Chubb was not seen at all on Thursday. The Browns have yet to shed much light on the situation, although a second consecutive missed practice indicates that Wednesday's absence was likely more than just a veteran maintenance day for Hunt and Chubb. A return to at least a limited session on Friday would be a step in the right direction for both running backs, so stay tuned to Cleveland's final injury report of the week. If neither can play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, both D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton would be in the mix for backfield carries.

  • Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt Not Practicing

    Cleveland Browns running backs Nick Chubb (calf) and Kareem Hunt (knee, wrist) both sat out of practice on Wednesday. It's unknown if either Chubb or Hunt are in danger of missing Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals, but we'll continue to monitor their status throughout the week. Chubb had a monster day in the Week 5 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, carrying the ball 21 times for 161 yards and a touchdown. Hunt still got his, rushing 12 times for 61 yards and two touchdowns while adding five catches for 28 yards. In this run-first offense, both Chubb and Hunt can co-exist and maintain standalone fantasy value. If one or both are unable to play this weekend, D'Ernest Johnson and rookie Demetric Felton would have larger roles against Arizona.

  • Nick Chubb Rushes For 161 Yards, TD In Loss

    Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb broke a two-game slump with a big outing against the Los Angeles Chargers in a 47-42 loss in Week 5. After slow outings in Weeks 3 and 4, Chubb carried the ball 21 times for 161 yards and a touchdown while adding a nine-yard reception in the loss. The veteran running back's touchdown was an impressive 52-yard run where he outraced the Los Angeles defense down the right sideline after breaking a couple of tackles. Chubb now has four rushing touchdowns through five games this season and has logged 64 carries over his past three games. He will be a solid fantasy running back in Week 6's home matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.

  • Nick Chubb Looks To Break Scoreless Streak In Week 5

    Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb has been overshadowed by backup running back Kareem Hunt in two straight games now. Hunt has scored two touchdowns over that span while Chubb has gone scoreless. The veteran running back will look to find the end zone for the first time since Week 2 on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5. The Chargers have been middle of the road against opposing running backs this season, allowing the 14th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position through four contests. Chubb should see his normal workload this weekend, but with just four catches this year, he has become an increasingly touchdown-dependent fantasy option. He can be treated as a high-end RB2 for Week 5.
