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.You'd have to go all the way back to 2013 to find the last time Julio Jones didnt finish as a top-8 wide receiver in fantasy football, and the only reason he didn't was due to injury (he was the No. 3 wide receiver in points per game that year). Keep in mind he's done all that without scoring a lot of touchdowns. Sure, the Falcons have Calvin Ridley making his way into a bigger role, but you simply cannot find a safer option to finish inside the top-10 every single year.
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 mixWith all the vacated targets from last season's ATL offense, NOLA's M. Thomas might be the only WR in 2020 to hold a candle to Jones' target volume
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. 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 The age defying machine. Draft with confidence, especially if you can pair him with a first round RB.
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 format. 
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.Jones is the model of consistency, his season has ended with him ranked 8th, 2nd, 6th, 6th, 5th, and 5th the last six seasons. He does turn 31-years old this off-season, but there is no reason to think he can't be an elite WR1 with QB Matt Ryan at the helm 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.Julio Jones had 1394 receiving yards last season, second in the league only to Michael Thomas, and that was his LOWEST yardage output since his rookie season in 2013. You can't find a more consistent player year-over-year and at 31 years old, he certainly still has enough left in him to stay at this level for another year.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
With Hunt in the line-up Chubb becomes a solid RB2.Matt Ryan has supported 2 Top 24 PPR WRs four times in his career. Amongst active QBs, only Aaron Rodgers has more seasons of supporting 2 Top 24 WRs. @ClutchFantasy
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Could be Dalvin Cook in this offense, but Kareem Hunt will get touches. I'm not seeing Chubb as a true workhorse, so I'm moving him slightly down. 
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...It's hard to find someone who's been as outstanding as Julio Jones over the past few years. Jones has finished as the WR5 or higher each of the past three seasons and he seems like a lock to repeat that type of performance again in 2020. This offense is going to air it out and Jones has yet to show any sign that he's losing a step at this point of his career. Feel confident in drafting Jones again as a top-5 option in 2020.
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.WR6, WR2, WR6, WR4, WR5, WR3. Has anyone been more reliable in fantasy over the last six years? Julio Jones continues to churn out the numbers in this high powered Falcons offence. That's despite consistently low TD numbers and serious target competition in Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper. While Ridley will undoubtedly continue to grow in this offence, Julio remains the superior player and with Hooper gone there's certainly room for both. Jones is often available early in the second round and that's spectacular value for a guy who's so reliable.
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.A monster. 6 year average of 162 targets, 103/1565/6. Now, if I were to find some chips in the Julio armor, his yards per reception were his lowest in a full season since 2015. His yards per target were a career low. This might be the beginning of the end, but I think he gives us a few more good years before that time, he's such a freak, and if I were to bet, he won't age like your standard big WR.
