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 itThe Jets, by most metrics and observational analysis, were among worst run blocking O-lines in '18, so Bell will be facing a headwind that he rarely endured in PIT - but sheer volume, elite, versatile talent should help him return Rd 1 value
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.Despite sitting out a year and moving to a new team, Bell should once again be an RB-1 for fantasy purposes. Yes, there are plenty of red flags. Adam Gase's teams are notorious for running few plays, the Jets have offensive line issues, and the Dolphins never let their most talented running back, Kenyan Drake, have enough work. But Bell's certain involvement in the passing game gives him an incredibly high floor, and he should most likely give you quality fantasy production week-in and week-out. Don't expect him to put up the numbers that he did with the Steelers. But he won't have to in order to earn his draft price.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
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.Bell should see a ton of carries, but he no longer has Big Ben, Antonio Brown or one of the best offensive lines in the NFL to help his fantasy value. He is a high-end RB2 that is going to see a lot of touches, but not the efficiency he has had in past years.
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.This is Bell's backfield and will be fed early and often. Gase also likes to move RBs to the outside now and then, which plays right into Bell's strengths.
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. 
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 fantasyHe's back, though this time it's probably going to be a lot less exciting. He'll be playing behind a much lesser offensive line, with a much lesser quarterback, in a much worse offense. He's going to get plenty of touches, but we can say that about a lot of running backs. The question is - what's his upside in a low-scoring offense? Adam Gase's offenses have been lacking in both overall plays and overall scoring. Did you know that Dolphins running backs scored 10 rushing touchdowns over the last two years... combined? Bell is a relatively safe pick due to the touches he'll get, but he lacks the upside you want out of a high first-round pick
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.Bell was as great of a fantasy asset as we've seen the prior five years before his holdout last season. With that said, he is moving from one of the best offensive lines and running schemes to the absolute worst of both. He will still see 300+ touches, of course, but without the Steelers offensive line, fantasy owners will likely be shocked at how inefficient Bell will be.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
 Bell now switches to the AFC East with the New York Jets and new Head Coach, Adam Gase. Gase has a tendency to run a RBBC, but has admittedly never had a talent like Bell before. This situation is murky and has me concerned. We may look back at Bell's numbers next offseason and say he performed well, but it didn't necessarily lead to consistent production week in and week out. Bell's risk is built into his ADP though and I would feel comfortable with him as my team's RB2.
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 seasonBell sat out the entire 2018 season, then changed teams. That adds a bit more risk than we are used to with Le'Veon. The once consensus top 5 pick now comes with a second round ADP. I preach avoiding risk in the early rounds of the draft, which makes me hesitant in drafting Bell. Not only has he been away from football for a year, but he leaves a top 5 offense to join a team that ranked 23 in points per game and 26th in plays per game. While I do expect this offense to take a step forward this season, it's still a downgrade for fantasy. His 2nd round ADP comes with massive upside...but there are also a lot of unknowns. My current projection has his value as a late second round pick, which is probably where I'd feel comfortable taking him.
