Shark Bites

Oklahoma State RB Chuba Hubbard has landed with Panthers in the 4th round of the NFL Draft. Hubbard made himself a household name with 2,094 rushing yards and 21 TDs in 2019. His production slipped quite a bit to his final season, however, including a drop from 6.4 yards per rush to just 4.7. Hubbard brings plenty of speed, but he might not present enough all-around ability to turn into a lead back in the NFL. If he settles in as merely a committee piece, then the fantasy upside will be limited. Carolina's not a bad landing spot. Christian McCaffrey obviously stands to dominate backfield work for as long as he's healthy and with the team. But Hubbard could be the handcuff by the end of summer. He'll compete with Reggie Bonnafon and Rodney Smith for that honor.
