Justin Dodds
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 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.We've continually heard that Jacobs is going to be more heavily involved in the passing game, though that never materialized last year, seeing just 27 targets in 13 games played. Then we heard, "we're going to involve him more in 2020." They then re-signed Jalen Richard, added Henry Ruggs, and Lynn Bowden. It's not looking likely that Jacobs sees the 50-plus targets he deserves, which lowers him down the rankings. The overall offense should improve, giving him more scoring opportunities, but relying on touchdowns is a tricky thing. He's best-suited as a high-end RB2 who has RB1 upside if they follow through on the promise to use him more in the passing game.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Was 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 mixNo. 13 RB in FAN PPG as rookie despite playing half his games with a shoulder fracture - an elite talent that should see a sizable bump in the passing game
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
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.Jacobs is coming off of a stellar rookies season and will now play in an offense that features some of the most explosive players in the league. The addition of Henry Ruggs should force defenses to play them deep giving Jacobs plenty of rushing lanes to run through.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
With Hunt in the line-up Chubb becomes a solid RB2.Three of their first four games are against top-5 run defenses
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.Jacobs had a very good rookie season with 1,316 yards from scrimmage and 7 touchdowns. Jacobs should be a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 for the Raiders in 2020.
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. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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...Jacobs is a fantastic selection in Standard formats due to the fact that he's likely going to see 270 carries in 2020. Unfortunately, he does lose a little bit of value in PPR formats with the lack of targets going his direction, but he's still likely to finish in the top-12 due to the sheer volume of carries.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
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.The Josh Jacobs hype is totally out of control. Currently the half-PPR RB7, he's going stupidly high in early 2020 drafts. We're talking about a guy who caught 20 balls in his rookie season in a team that just brought in two pass-catching RBs to join the locked-in Jalen Richard. Now the team has brought in two wide receivers and Jason Witten in a clear commitment to the passing game. That a bad sign for a guy who will need to add touches and maintain his high efficiency to even match his draft position. It's time to chill out and wait a little longer for Josh Jacobs.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
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.IF Coach Gruden gets Jacobs more involved in the pass game, Jacobs will be a threat for top 5. Ricard and Washington combined for 84 targets, while each playing less than 30% of the snaps. Ricard has been resigned. Washington and his 41 targets are an UFA.
