Fantasy Football Questions: Derrick Henry, Chase Brown, Nick Chubb (2024)

The 2024 season is still a few months away, and that means it’s a great time to prepare for your fantasy football leagues. Much will change between now and opening night on September 5. Let’s look at the biggest fantasy football questions for all 32 NFL teams. And below we dive into a few questions involving notable fantasy football players.

Fantasy Football Questions

BAL – Will Derrick Henry be a stud or bust?

Henry was the RB8 in 2023, averaging 13.7 half-point PPR fantasy points per game after leading the NFL in rushing attempts (280). However, he averaged a career-low 4.2 yards per rushing attempt. Yet, Henry has a top-12 running back ADP for FantasyPros and Underdog Fantasy. The veteran takes over a Baltimore backfield that totaled 1,696 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns last season. While the age and mileage are a concern, Henry is in the ideal situation to crank out another top-12 finish.

CIN – Should fantasy players draft Zack Moss or Chase Brown first?

While many believe Moss will replace Joe Mixon as the lead back in Cincinnati, Brown is the better runner. According to Fantasy Points Data, he had a higher explosive run rate (9.1% vs. 3.1%) and yards after contact per attempt (3.09 vs. 2.29) than Moss did during his time as a starter for the Indianapolis Colts last season. Furthermore, Brown had a significantly higher yards per route run average (4.46 vs. 0.98) than Moss last year. I’ll happily draft the second-year player two rounds later than the veteran.

CLE – What should fantasy players expect from Nick Chubb?

Unfortunately, Chubb suffered a gruesome knee injury early in 2023. While the star running back’s career isn’t over, the Browns haven’t said when they expect him back on the field. Fantasy players should prepare for Chubb to start the 2024 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list (PUP). While the team didn’t re-sign Kareem Hunt, they did add D’Onta Foreman and Nyheim Hines to pair with Jerome Ford. Unless Cleveland announces that Chubb will be ready for Week 1, I have no interest in drafting the veteran running back.
