Fantasy Impact:

Hubbard being the backup is important for fantasy managers drafting with the first and second pick in their draft. Hubbard likely won't have much value in season-long leagues with 10 or 12 teams, but if McCaffrey's snap count is reduced then Hubbard certainly could launch into flex-worthy territory. If McCaffrey sustains an injury this season Hubbard would immediately catapult into RB2 territory with RB1 upside, making him a valuable handcuff for McCaffrey stakeholders.
