Official Nick Chubb - RB Georgia, Dynasty

Recommended Posts

I miss the days (a week ago), when I could Chubb in the mid to late second in best ball drafts.  

The world has finally caught up to how good this kid is going to be this year.  My only hope is that this the peak and it falls some in the next week or two before I draft my big money leagues.  Maybe I can be so lucky that he has 3 carries for 2 yards in the 3rd preseason game and maybe drops a pass.

Most recent Yahoo expert .5 PPR rankings has Chubb #4 overall...not #4 RB!!

Take Hunt away, and this is where I believe Chubb would've settled at weeks ago, particular after Duke, Zeke and Mel G developments. Hunt hasn't gone away, so there is that, but perhaps some of the consensus fear about his 2nd half contamination of Chubb's valuation is a bit overblown, and starting to subside.

I agree. I don't think you can justify him over McCaffrey, Barkley, and Kamara (yet) but everyone else? Sure.

Hoping he falls to me at pick # 10 in my 0.5 PPR, but I have a feeling he won't even make it to me.

I think he is there for sure.  I believe he is in for a good season I just think there are a lot of more tired and true fantasy locks ahead of him.

In my 0.5 PPR (12 team) league, I see the first 8 picks (not necessarily in order) as: Barkley, McCaffrey, Kamara, Zeke, Mahomes, Lev Bell, Hopkins and DJ. The guy who picks # 9 is a friend and has already indicated he is going RB (regardless of the WRs available). Which means he will take either Conner or Chubb. He won't take Mixon or Gurley or Cook at # 9, as that is a bit early for them, and I believe that HE believes he can get one of them at pick # 16.

Mahomes?  nah

Michael Thomas, maybe julio, maybe Adams

 

I think you can get chubb at 10.   I do doubt one will be able to get him at the turn though.

 

edit - just ran the numbers from the last 2 days of mocks and he is going #8.  If that is the case then I think you can get a lights out wr at 10, and maybe another one in the 2nd if the run on running backs continues.  There are plenty of guys I like in the 4,5 rounds

Mahomes will absolutely go in the top 5 in my league (6 points for passing TDs). Everyone saw the Mahomes team win our league last year with basically a ####ty team...plus Mahomes. As for the mocks with Chubb going # 8, I am not directing this at anyone in particular, but "I told ya so." He is the new flavor of the week, and anyone thinking they are going to get him in the mid-late 2nd round is deluding themselves. I happen to like James Conner a lot, so I have no problems taking him at 10, and then grabbing a "lights out WR" at 15 (such as Tyreek Hill, Beckham, Michael Thomas, etc..). I would love to have the balls to go WR/WR at 10 and 15, but then my first RB won't come until pick # 34, and I don't want to do that.

Is it crazy to think Chubb is RB5 now with Duke gone? I’m not near as worried about Hunt as most but I’m wondering if I should be. Would hate for him to lose carries heading down the stretch. 

I have the 8th pick and was planning on going with whoever was left of Hopkins/Adams/Jones but thinking Chubb is the pick here.

Just took him at the turn with Gurley. Conner went 2 picks earlier. A less talented rb and a worse offense imo.

He caught 20 balls last year.. was that just Duke or does Chubb not excel here?

He was raw last year but flashed good hands. He had those 20 all in the final 9 games. With Duke there. That’s a 35 catch pace over 16 games. You’d have to think that is the absolute floor. If he’s improved at all (likely) and receives more opportunity with Duke gone (likely) than you’d have to think he’ll get more than that. One additional catch per game gets him to 50.

Can’t remember where I heard it, have been streaming podcasts all month with my hour commute each day, but someone on the coaching staff said they wanted to get him 45-50 balls minimum.

Good to hear. Something’s wrong if they’re not trying to get the ball in his hands in space a variety of different via the passing game. If he can get just a couple catches per game on designed plays that’s huge. He’ll catch some more just from being on the field a ton and snagging checkdowns and dumpoffs.

Absolutely. 3 catches a game is totally reasonable. Especially with OBJ and Callaway to stretch the field. Although I think Higgins might be ahead of him.

I’m on CBS and just checked projections - 53rd overall! 😲

What was mentioned earlier - only half a season, but I think the biggest issue with his lack of receptions was game script. The offense was too efficient vs. Atlanta (53 snaps) and got out to a big lead, so the passing game shut it down in the second half. Both Bengals games were blowouts and the passing game again shut it down in the second half. The Texans game was a blowout loss and the offense only mustered 57 snaps. The Carolina game was close, but again - the offense was too efficient, only 52 snaps. 

So I wouldn't read too much into his actual output in the passing game last year. The skills are there for quite a bit more.

Bloom & Waldman were talking ‘On the Couch’ about how Chubb should go between picks 5-9 in drafts!!

At this point I don't think it's a stretch to take Chubb as your team's bona fide RB1 over David Johnson.

It definitely gives me pause given the concerns I have seeing ARI generate so little offense in preseason so far.

His 13.77 ppg in his starts in non-ppr were far ahead of DJ.   If they both improve I don't see the issue.

Browns running backs coach Stump Mitchell said Nick Chubb will "be used a little more in the passing game" this season.

"I think [Chubb's] going to be special like he was last year,’’ Mitchell said. "He’ll be used a little more in the passing game than he was last year. Nick just continues to improve on the skillset that he has, and I think he has a fantastic skillset.’’ Chubb averaged an increased 2.9 targets on 12.7 routes per game once coach Freddie Kitchens ceded Hue Jackson last season, and Duke Johnson's recent departure likely ensures those marks swell. Although Kareem Hunt could siphon third-down duties upon returning from his eight-game suspension to start the year, Chubb remains a potential positional week-winner and first-round option during the first half of the season.

Miraculously, every running back in the NFL who has poor receiving skills is going to be used more in the passing game this coming season.

 

That has been the theme of virtually every preseason update I’ve noticed. 

I honestly don’t know if Chubb has poor receiving skills or not though. 

Heard the same for Aaron Jones & Carson as well. 

I’m all-in on any/all 3 of these guys at the right price. Chubb is the toughest for me. Hunt comes back week 10, which could be a value hit right before the fantasy playoffs. And you’d potentially be passing up guys like Beckham, Tyreek Hill, Mike Evans if you’re drafting near the 1-2 turn. 

Tough call. Love his upside though.

And the analytics guys on twitter are having a cow over it. Apparently rb targets are inefficient. Yeah tell that to Sean Payton and Josh McDaniels.

As a guy drafting 10th I love the Chubb helium. People picking him 6th are making the turn easier for me.

So your proof that he has poor receiving skills is? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fB8t7ZKlL-k

He came into the league with receiving as a question mark.  He only had 20 receptions last year.  PFF gave him a receiving grade of 54.3.  But I'll admit I'm basing my opinion on little other than other people's opinions.  But a youtube video of one amazing catch isn't enough to change my opinion.

K guys. 

I think hunt is good but imo Reid's offense really was the reason he blew up.  I don't think he out talents Chubb as a running back.  I just think kc's offense is on another level which is why I am trying to buy into it however I can and no matter the reaching.

KC has long been tailor made for guys like hunt and hill...

Why on earth would CLE mix in a twig when they have the perfect ground n pound goblin back there? Chubb is custom made for this offense.

Hunt will have a role, no doubt. The former Duke role. Chubb will be the chubb of last season's 2nd half (barring injury, of course)

So you are saying that Hunt offers nothing in the 3 down category over Duke Johnson?  

That isn't plausible.

Went 1.08 in our decades old full PPR, which did not surprise me based on Mocks the last week or two. Heck it wasn’t even the most surprising first round pick.

1.01 chalk

1.02 chalk

1.03 chalk 

1.04 Bell mildly interesting but he is a Sparty

1.05 Elliott

1.06 Conner oh OK :unsure: right Stillers fan

1.07 Hopkins

1.08 Chubb 

I have the tenth pick and I’m getting Adams or DJ?? This was....unexpected. I need more :coffee:

1.09 Cook what. just. happened.

Haven’t even made a pick and I’m already planning what I’m getting myself for Christmas.    :pickle:

 

Back on topic...I’m as excited as the next non-Browns fan is to see what this offense can do. Ain’t nobody stacking the box with the weapons they have. But is Chubb the cornerstone of a fantasy championship after week 9? I don’t get the late summer helium, especially with that O-line.

took DJ and got OBJ at 15. #CHAMPIONSHIP

have we reached a point of maximum velocity of the Browns' supposed ascension to the greatest NFL teams in the history of great NFL teams or what? I own Chubb in a dynasty league and I'm beginning to get a little :rollseyes: at the suggestions that the Browns' have 'arrived'. Am I the only one who feels that the Brownies are just a lil' too overhyped here? Thats what has me completely worried as a Chubb fan , Chubb owner.
