Browns HC Hue Jackson suggested Tuesday that RB Nick Chubb's role will grow going forward. "He has to get some," Jackson said of the rookie. "[Carlos] Hyde is playing well, but this guy is scoring touchdowns from long ways away." Chubb turned 3 carries into 105 yards and 2 scores in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. "I was impressed," Jackson continued. "He ran away from some people on the first one and ran away from some people on the second one. It just looked natural and easy. He was gone. They could not touch him." Chubb is now averaging 14.6 yards per carry with 2 scores on 10 attempts. Hyde, meanwhile, has mustered just 3.4 yards per carry. Chubb's role certainly deserves to expand. But until we see it happen, he's just a bench stash in fantasy football.

Browns RB Nick Chubb didn't get any snaps with QB Tyrod Taylor and the 1st-team offense in Friday night's preseason game against the Bills. RB Carlos Hyde was on the field for 17 of Taylor's 25 snaps, carrying 9 times for 64 yards and a score. RB Duke Johnson played the other 8 snaps with Taylor, finishing with 27 yards on 4 carries. It's clear at this point that Hyde will open the season as Cleveland's lead back. Chubb could work his way into playing time over the course of the year but won't be an early-season fantasy option.

The Browns used the 35th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft on Georgia RB Nick Chubb. Chubb busted out as a true freshman back in 2014, racking up 1,547 yards and 14 TDs on 7.1 yards per carry. His 2015 was cut short in October by a catastrophic left knee injury: a torn PCL, MCL and LCL, plus cartilage damage and a dislocation. Chubb returned for 2016 but didn’t look like the same player, posting a career-low 5.0 yards per carry. He bounced back nicely this past year, carrying 223 times for 1,345 yards (6.0 YPC) and 15 TDs. Chubb proved that the knee injury is behind him by registering an 83rd percentile SPARQ score at the Combine. When healthy, this guy is as good a runner as any RB in the class. He’s mostly unproven in the passing game, though, totaling just 31 catches across 4 college seasons. Chubb won’t be doing much pass-catching in Cleveland with Duke Johnson in the same backfield. But the rookie has a good shot to beat out Carlos Hyde for lead ball-carrying duties. That’ll be a situation to monitor throughout the summer.
