Chubb missed two games with a calf injury, but was removed from the team’s final injury report on Friday. Kareem Hunt remains sidelined with his own calf injury, and so it will be Chubb and D’Ernest Johnson carrying the workload, with Demetric Felton maybe getting a couple carries.
Fantasy Football analysis: Browns RB Nick Chubb
The Steelers give up the seventh fewest fantasy points to running backs, but you don’t draft Chubb to consider sitting him. If he’s healthy, you start him and don’t worry about it. Johnson is likely to take a few carries to keep Chubb fresh, especially coming off a two-week layoff. But it is hard to see Johnson taking so many as to negate much of Chubb’s traditional value. Chubb’s ceiling might be a bit limited this week, but he’s always got a tremendous floor.
