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.Mixon had 1,464 yards from scrimmage and 9 touchdowns in 2018. He should thrive in Zac Taylor's scheme that is very running back friendly. .
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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 fantasyYou have to love watching Marvin Lewis walk out the door if you're Mixon, as he was severely underused as a receiver in Lewis' offense. In comes Zac Taylor, who said he's going to start the Bengals' playbook with the Rams offense, which is where he came from as a quarterbacks coach for Sean McVay. Them drafting two running backs is somewhat concerning, but that could be to protect them in case of a Mixon injury, which has happened a few times in his short career
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
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.Mixon is an elite talent and maybe with Green nicked up the Bengals run more. I don't know why more people aren't salivating over this kid behind in a system similar to the one that made Todd Gurley a god.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
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.Mixon's talent is undeniable, as he showed last year with his breakout season during which he averaged 20 touches and over 100 yards per game. Although he should (and will) be drafted as an RB1, his upside his capped some by two main issues. The first is the Bengals' offensive line, which is already dealing with significant holes. The second is the presence of Gio Bernard and Mixon's lack of significant involvement in the passing game. But his floor remains high, and fantasy owners should have no hesitations about drafting him as the top back on their team.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
Will 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 itBecame a true game-breaker in '18, with a hefty 10.5% of his 237 carries going for 14+ yards - has room to make greater strides in the passing game after catching 43 passes
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. 
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
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.Mixon is a late round second pick going late first. He has a bad offensive line again, he had three games over 100 rushing yards despite having the 8th most carries of all RBs. He had three games with 5 or more receptions, and 8 weeks of 27 or less receiving yards. He is being overdrafted.
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.An inefficient runner on a team with a bad offensive line. The Bengals best O-Lineman last season, Clint Boling, retired and then the Bengals recognized their needs and drafted Jonah Williams. Unfortunately, Williams tore his labrum. The Bengals also drafted Trayveon Williams and Rodney Anderson and still have Gio Bernard. His volume will make him a back-end RB1/high-end RB2, but he is just being drafted too high.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
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.Were it not for the Bengals' best offensive lineman retiring and their first round rookie going on injured reserve, Mixon would be in consideration for a first round pick but with those big blows, his stock drops him down to a fringe RB1/RB2. He is extremely talented without question and may even be able to handle a huge workload but it won't matter if the offense can't support a running back.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
 Everything was looking up for Joe Mixon's fantasy stock in 2019 until the Bengals lost LT Jonah Williams for the season. Now, Mixon will be reliant upon rookie Head Coach Zac Taylor to scheme open running lanes and involvement in the passing game. Mixon's one of the true workhorse backs in the NFL and he should still contribute in a big way this season, even if his ceiling is slightly less with Williams going down for the year.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
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 seasonMixon enters his third season as a pro at the age of 23. He posted a 93rd percentile height adjusted speed score, a 77th percentile SPARQ-x score, a 90th percentile college YPC and an 81st percentile college target market share. Mixon is an elite athlete, and he finally looks poised to take over bell cow duties in this backfield. He should improve upon his 237/1168/9 stat line from last season, as there's no legitimate competition behind him, and he projects to be amongst the league leaders in opportunity share. The Bengals ran the third fewest plays per game last season, and their offense should improve from just 23 points per game last season. A full 16 weeks from Mixon will make him a first round pick in 2020.
