Bottom Line

Ford spent 2022 buried on the Browns’ depth chart behind RBs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. He contributed essentially nothing on offense but did serve as an effective kick returner.

With Hunt no longer in the picture, Ford is the favorite to be the RB handcuff to Chubb in 2023 and should be considered a decent speculative bench stash in fantasy.

What We Learned Last Year
  • Ford was selected by the Browns in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft and spent his rookie season primarily serving as a kick returner.
  • He only registered eight carries for 12 rushing yards on offense and didn’t post any meaningful fantasy numbers to speak of.
    • Ford appeared in just 13 games last year due to suffering an ankle injury that briefly landed him on IR.
  • As a collegiate athlete, Ford spent two seasons at Alabama between 2018-19 before transferring to Cincinnati in 2020. He only had one season as a starter in 2021, but he was pretty darn good that year:
    • 215 carries
    • 1,319 rushing yards (led the AAC)
    • 21 receptions
    • 220 receiving yards
    • 20 total TDs
  • Ford checked into the NFL Combine in 2022 at 5’10½, 210 pounds, and ran a 4.46-second 40-yard time.
What to Expect in 2023
  • Though he didn’t see much opportunity last year, former teammate RB Kareem Hunt was not retained by the Browns this offseason and is still currently a free agent. With Hunt gone, Ford is the favorite to be the No. 2 behind Nick Chubb on the depth chart.
  • Early reports out of camp indicate that the coaching staff is fully behind the belief that Ford is ready to step into a ‘much larger role’ in the Browns’ offense, too.
  • We don’t expect much from the second-year back, given how much of a workhorse that Chubb has been for the Browns in his career, but Ford could be a viable fantasy asset if injury opens up an opportunity for him.
  • Ford is a fine speculative add as a handcuff RB in a strong running game.

Nick Chubb, RB CLE

9:11pm EDT 9/18/23

Nick Chubb hurts left knee, leaves on cart vs. Steelers

Browns RB Nick Chubb left Monday night's game in Pittsburgh on a cart after taking a shot to his left knee. ESPN declined to show replays of the injury, and Chubb could be seen denying a teammate who wanted to help him up immediately after. We'll watch for details on the injury, but it certainly doesn't look good. RB Jerome Ford entered and caught a TD pass on the ensuing play. (He then also ran in the 1-point conversion.)

Update: Chubb has been ruled out with a knee injury.

The Browns got RB Jerome Ford back on the field Tuesday for the first time since he hurt his right hamstring in an Aug. 7 practice. We'll watch his progress leading up to Week 1.

Browns RB Jerome Ford's Week 1 status is in doubt after he injured his hamstring on Monday, according to insider Mary Kay Cabot. Ford seemingly had the No. 2 RB job -- and potentially a third-down role -- locked up. We'll see if this injury spurs the Browns to add to the backfield. Outside of Ford and Nick Chubb, the only other RBs on the roster are Demetric Felton, John Kelly, and Hassan Hall.
