Locked In Football
 When Kareem Hunt joined the Browns last season in week 10, Chubb averaged just 12.3 half-ppr FP/g, good for RB21 among qualified RBs. Chubb was RB15 in total fpts over that period of time. Given that Hunt is still on the team, it is reasonable to expect similar usage between both Hunt and Chubb. His current ECR of RB8 is just a few spots higher than I have him at RB11 currently largely because of the concern of Hunt eating into Chubb's volume. I'd rather have guys like Drake, Mixon, Jones, and maybe Jacobs depending on the
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 I'm just not seeing Chubb as a true workhorse, so he's well outside of Round 1 for me.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's one thing to project a breakout for a player due to an increase in opportunity. It's another thing to project a breakout due to an increase in offensive production. Mixon got the opportunity last year under Zac Taylor, as he totaled 18-plus touches on 10 different occasions. But he'll need the offense to take a step forward in 2020 if he wants to ascend into stardom, as he's been an RB2 or better in just 57 percent of his games over the last two years. You must pay attention to his contract status as you approach drafts because Mixon has stated he'll hold out without an extension. This is a real thing with running backs, as they're trying to preserve their health while cashing in on a second contract. Stay tuned.Through 10 games last year, Chubb was doing very well and was the No. 4 running back (PPG) in half-PPR formats. Keep in mind that was despite the offense not being very good. From that point forward (when Kareem Hunt joined the offense), Chubb was the No. 18 running back while Hunt was the No. 26 running back. This is clearly more of a timeshare than Chubb owners would like, leaving him best-suited as a high-end RB2 rather than the RB1 he appeared destined to be.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Mixon has 2 of the 3 things that make a fantasy star - volume and talent. What's he been missing is a ripe environment and the hope is rookie QB Burrow can fix thatWas not an RB1 with K. Hunt in the backfield mix in 2019, but new HC Stefanski is as run-heavy as they come and that should help him get back in the RB1 mix
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Mixon finished the 2019 season on a strong note averaging nearly 100 yards a game on the ground (98) and scoring six total TDs.With Joe Burrow now under center, the Bengals have a chance to surprise people offensively, and that all begins with the ground game. Look for Mixon to finally have the breakout season we've been waiting for since he entered the league.I'm a bit low on Chubb this year and that is solely due to the presence of Kareem Hunt. In the eight games prior to Hunt's return, Chubb averaged over 100 rushing yards a game and scored six TDs. In the eight games with Hunt on the field, Chubb's rushing yards dropped to 93 per game and scored only one TD. He's in a committee, can't trust him as a bell cow back anymore.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Mixon had a horrible start to the season, but finished the year strong and he had 1424 yards from scrimmage and 8 touchdowns on the season. Joe Burrow should make the passing game more dangerous, which should help Mixon see better running lanes.Chubb was one of the lone bright spots on the Browns in 2020, finishing with 1772 yards from scrimmage and 8 touchdowns. Chubb should continue to see a large role in this offense and he should have RB1 value in 2020. The question is how much does Kareem Hunt cut into his touches.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Fun fact: Nick Chubb out-yarded Derrick Henry last season. This guy simply knows how to carry the rock, averaging 5 or more ypc each of the last two seasons behind an offensive line that didn't make things too easy on him. While he lacks overall RB1 upside, he's as safe a bet as anyone to finish as a low-end RB1.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Mixon jumps off the page as an RB who did a lot with nothing last year, but I'm nervous about a potential holdout.With Hunt in the line-up Chubb becomes a solid RB2.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Joe Mixon has always had the talent to be a fantasy football star, but the offenses he's been tied to have struggled the past several seasons. Now, the Bengals have Joe Burrow leading the offense and this should be one of the league's most unstoppable units. If that's the case, there are going to be plenty of scoring opportunities for Mixon in 2020. If you miss out on the "Top 5", don't worry about it...scoop up Mixon and celebrate.With Kevin Stefanski now in town, there's a legitimate chance that Nick Chubb may reach 300 carries on the season behind a vastly improved offensive line. With that being said, Chubb does have Kareem Hunt to worry about behind him on this depth chart. Chubb's unlikely to see much work in the passing game this season, but he's still going to be heavily utilized on the ground. If there's anything worth betting on at the RB position for fantasy football, it's volume. Chubb certainly has the talent to make those carries count...
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Don't sleep on a Joe Mixon bounce back in 2020! The Bengals were truly awful last year, but Joe Burrow, AJ Green, Tee Higgins and a slew of other additions indicate a new dawn in Cinci. Mixon remains the clear lead back and should get another 300-350 touches. The improved attack and Joe Burrow's love of passing to RBs means Mixon has seriously high upside in 2020. He's a strong first round pick.Nick Chubb has a sensational 2019, extraordinarily topping 1000 rush yards AFTER CONTACT. He remains the focal point of a Browns attack which should be significantly better but still run heavy with the removal of the awful Freddie Kitchens. There is a major cause for concern in Kareem Hunt though. Hunt was very good last year and while Chubb is highly unlikely to lose his role given his immense talent, Hunt could certainly chip into his opportunities and will continue to push Chubb off the field when the Browns fall behind or in 2-minute drills. Chubb remains a great non-PPR option but takes a big hit in PPR is is more of a second round guy in that format. Be very wary.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
How many more terrible situations does he have to survive before he finally gets a real supporting cast? The team has finished in the bottom half of the league in yards and points the last 3 seasons. Mixon manages to survive as RB34(rookie year where he only started 7 games), 9, and 13.Go away Kareem, don't make me lower Mr. Chubb. Pre Hunt, Chubb had 22.3 touches a game, 4 targets a game. Enter Hunt, Chubb had 19.3 touches a game, 2 targets a game. So he still had clear control of the run game but ceded work to Hunt in the pass game, which Chubb hasn't graded out well on his first 2 years, despite the 1 sweet catch last year. Hunt is an excellent route runner so it makes sense. I think they both can maintain high value as long as Hunt isn't eating into Chubb's carries. Unless Chubb improves as a route runner and receiver it seems like he's in more danger to lose touches versus the other way around. Hunt can only gain carries while continuing to be a great pass catcher. A small knock for Chubb IMO.
