Elliott led the NFL in rushing yards last year and he should be an elite fantasy running back again in 2019.I loved how Chubb closed the season and he should be in the RB1 discussion in 2019. RB Kareem Hunt would be a necessary handcuff for Chubb if Chubb were to go down with injury, but Hunt is suspended the first eight games of the season.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
The Cowboys caved and signed him before Week 1. Zeke is now my #2 overall player. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If you wanted to select Elliott at No. 1 overall, you shouldn't feel guilty or bad about it. In fact, he should probably be the favorite to finish as the top running back considering the lack of competence in the Giants offense. Elliott has played 40 regular season games in his career and delivered RB2 or better numbers in 92.5 percent of those games, which is actually better than Le'Veon Bell's 91.9 percent. Elliott is as safe as they come.Some are worried about Chubb due to the signing of Kareem Hunt this offseason, but you shouldn't be one of them. Hunt has an eight-game suspension that will allow Chubb to run with the job as he did down the stretch last year. The Browns invested a high second-round pick on Chubb and he's done nothing but impress. He's the starter and an RB1 in fantasy
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
The latest report is that the Cowboys have offered Zeke a deal to become the second highest paid RB...right above Bell and below Gurley. However, Zeke wants to be the highest paid. He has absolutely no leverage, as the Cowboys could keep him under contract for the next two seasons, then even franchise him for a third. If he actually needs to be the highest paid, then there's a very real chance this lasts well into the season.Let others make the mistake of passing on Chubb. He was PFF's #2 rated RB last season, ranked first in elusiveness rating, and is on what should be an elite scoring offense this season. Chubb averaged 16.6 half ppr points per game over the final 8 weeks last season, as he displayed his TD upside with 7 TD's over that span. 18 TD's is well within his range of outcomes this season as he's the clear goal line option. Nick Chubb is already one of the best RB's in the league, and there's no way teams will be able to stack the box against him. Kareem Hunt is a good RB, but I have no concern drafting Chubb. You're going to get top 5 overall production over the first 8 weeks of the season, and while he'll see less workload when Hunt returns, he'll still be an elite option in the offense. I wouldn't hesitate for even a second in drafting Chubb this season
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Zeke would be my #2 and an understandable #1 if he wasn't holding out all summer. At this point, you have to pick up Tony Pollard as an elite handcuff no matter what happens.Chubb might be the most underrated stud rusher in all of football. Until Kareem Hunt shows up - and perhaps even after - he's going to wow us. Somehow, we can get him at a slight discount despite his mouth-watering upside.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
All about if he returns in time for the regular season.Nick Chubb was an absolute animal his rookie season. He was the #1 ranked RB on PFF and had the highest elusive rating in the league. He is on a great offense, and with Duke gone, should have a larger role in the passing game.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
If/when he ends holdout, he's the safest justifiable top choice on the board - 12+ PPR FAN PTS in 37 of 40 career games - no non-QB in past 20 years has more in 1st 40 games of a careerWill any Chubb owner feel peace come Week 10 when K. Hunt is sitting on the sidelines for CLE? Not that Chubb will lose his lead role, but curbing his workload down the stretch to preserve him for a possible playoff run has logic to it
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Elliott is obviously one of the most dynamic running backs in the league, and he took it to another level last year when he got much more involved in the passing game. Without any issues hanging over his head, he's certainly in the discussion for the top selection in any fantasy draft. But, as always, there are issues with Elliott, this time a contract dispute which has prevented him from attending camp. Despite some cap issues, this situation seems likely to be resolved, as Jerry Jones knows all too well from his days with Emmitt Smith the pain of an elite running back holding out. Until we get closer to the start of the season and there are real rumblings of a holdout, continue to keep Elliott near the top of your draft board. He'll likely come in with a new contract and another top-notch season.Chubb essentially averaged 20 touches and 100 yards per game once he took over as the starting running back last year, and there's little reason to expect a dip in his performance, at least for the first half of the season. With Duke Johnson now in Texas, Chubb should dominate the running back touches early on, and with Odell Beckham Jr. on board, defenses will need to focus on stopping the pass more. The issue becomes what happens to Chubb in the second half once Kareem Hunt returns from suspension. But for now, that's a lifetime away. Draft Chubb with confidence as an RB1.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 From Week 8 on last year, Nick Chubb averaged nearly 17 PPR Points per game, making him the RB6 during that time. The Browns should be near the goaline often and Chubb is the guy to punch them in. With Duke gone Chubb is looking at being a true bell-cow for the first eight games, and regardless of Hunt entering the picture he will have the bulk of the workload in his favor through the remainder of the season.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 He was a top ranked runner, according to PFF, in multiple different metrics. Most notably, he was the #2 overall RB. The only gripe against Chubb was that he didn't catch passes, but that can certainly change. Duke Johnson is out of Cleveland (not that he was really gonna have a role), Mayfield checked down to RBs almost his entire first preseason drive (grain of salt), and he did have at least 3 catches in four of his last 7 games. Kareem Hunt is also not a concern to me as, after his suspension and the bye, he won't be back until week 10. By then, Chubb will have impressed enough to maintain his role.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Zeke is the biggest risk in the top four but if he plays, he is the best bet to finish #1. He is a durable workhorse behind one of the best offensive lines in football, plus we can expect mostly positive game scripts. Over his career, Zeke averages 2099 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns per 16 games.While Carlos Hyde was the lead back in Cleveland, they made him a workhorse then Chubb took over and saw 18.6 carries per game over the next 9 contests. It seems clear that he will be a 20 touch per game weapon for fantasy owners this year and should find his way into the end zone more often in what will be a much improved offense.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
The Cowboys are making strides to make their offense more dynamic in 2019 by promoting Kellen Moore to OC. Zeke's the centerpiece of this Cowboys offense and he's always going to be in contention to push the 300 carry mark each season, but will the Cowboys' efforts mean even more scoring opportunities for Zeke in 2019? There's a world where we could look back at the end of the season and be talking about Elliot as the RB1 over Barkley.
