D'Ernest Johnson Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Most Recent Shark Bites

Browns RB Nick Chubb has been activated from the COVID list, putting him on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Lions. Chubb racked up 30 carries to D'Ernest Johnson's 12 across Weeks 8 and 9. We'd expect a similar split this weekend. The matchup vs. Detroit's 30th-ranked RB defense makes Chubb a RB1 and Johnson a RB3 or flex play.

Browns RB Nick Chubb remains on the COVID list. RB John Kelly was removed from the list on Thursday morning, but Chubb and RB Demetric Felton were not. Chubb still has a few days to be cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Lions, but he's not a lock to be available for that one. D'Ernest Johnson would be a RB1 if Chubb remains out.

Browns RBs Nick Chubb, Demetric Felton and John Kelly will miss this weekend's game vs. the Patriots on the COVID list, HC Kevin Stefanski said Friday. We'd expect Chubb back for Week 11 but will continue to keep tabs on his status. It'll be D'Ernest Johnson and Brian Hill, who was signed earlier this week, in Cleveland's backfield on Sunday. Johnson should handle the vast majority of the RB touches against New England's middling run defense. Johnson, of course, ran for 146 yards and a score on 22 carries vs. the Broncos back in Week 7.

Browns RBs Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton tested positive for COVID, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Both guys are vaccinated, per Schefter, giving them a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Patriots. We'll monitor the situation, but RB D'Ernest Johnson needs to be rostered in all fantasy leagues. He'd be a borderline RB1 if Chubb is out on Sunday.

Browns RB Nick Chubb (calf) is expected back for Sunday's game vs. the Steelers, barring a setback in practice this week, according to insider Josina Anderson. We'll track Chubb's progress over the next few days. Despite RB D'Ernest Johnson's impressive Week 7, Chubb should return as Cleveland's feature back.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Friday that he's "hopeful" to get RB Nick Chubb (calf) back for Week 8. We'll keep an eye on Chubb's status when Cleveland gets back to work next week. Despite RB D'Ernest Johnson's impressive outing in Thursday night's win over the Broncos, a healthy Chubb will be the Browns' feature back until Kareem Hunt returns from his calf injury.

Browns HC Kevin Stefanski ruled RB Nick Chubb (calf) out for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 8. Cleveland will roll with D'Ernest Johnson, Demetric Felton and John Kelly in the backfield vs. Denver.

According to multiple reports, Browns HC Kevin Stefanski says RB Kareem Hunt will miss at least 3 weeks with the calf injury he suffered in the loss to Arizona. "Hopefully not much longer than that, but we'll see," he said, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. We'll see about Nick Chubb's status for Thursday night's game against Denver. He, of course, missed the Cardinals game with his own calf injury. If Chubb can't go, Cleveland will be down to D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton as backfield leaders. That would obviously mean touch-volume upside for both players. Just keep in mind that neither is likely to land in a workhorse role -- and that both are limited talents.
