2021 Nick Chubb Fantasy Football Overview:

In 2020, Nick Chubb rushed for 1,067 yards in 12 games for the Cleveland Browns, a city Robert Palmer has played at a whopping four times! Despite missing four games, a dozen touchdowns elevated Chubb to ninth overall RB in terms of total points.

The bane of Nick Chubb remains Kareem Hunt. This fact is well known, just like it is well known that Palmer charted with his debut solo album, Sneaking Sally Down the Alley. In addition Chubb caught 16 passes last year, while Hunt reeled in 38. Robert Palmer summed up the situation precisely in his 1988 hit, Simply Irresistible, when he crooned, “the trend irreversible.”

The argument against reaching for Chubb is that he has a limited ceiling. This is in stark contrast to Palmer’s 1988 smash hit album, Heavy Nova, which topped the U.S. chart for 3 weeks. Chubb does not top the charts, however, when it comes to workload. He averaged a bit under 16 carries per game. In contrast, Derrick Henry, a similar back in that he does not catch many passes, averaged over 23. Chubb’s like the song by versatile songwriter Robert Palmer, Addicted to Love, except replace “Love” with “getting a lot of carries” and replace “addicted” with “not addicted.”

Put him firmly in your tier 2 of RBs. That’s “back end of the first round” and “mid-$60s at 12-team auction” territory.

Best Case Scenario:

Chubb stays healthy and gets an increased workload. He soars into the top-5 like Addicted to Love soared up the charts.

Worst Case Scenario:

Chubb is limited by the further emergence of Kareem Hunt. He finishes as a back-end RB1 and has to go on the I.R. when the infectious Robert Palmer track, Simply Irresistible, gets stuck in his head.
