RB - CLE - OUT
Week 6 Outlook
Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Chubb could not practice all week due to a calf injury and was ultimately ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. The Browns reportedly are non-committal about placing Chubb on the short-term injured reserve, and he remains day-to-day. Browns RB Kareem Hunt (wrist) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game with a wrist injury. Hunt should have a vital role and becomes a surefire RB1 in Week 6 while Chubb is sidelined. Fantasy managers should check back on Sunday to ensure Hunt is active before inserting him into their starting lineups.
Browns RB Nick Chubb (calf) once again didn't participate during Friday's practice.
Not good. Chubb hasn't practiced all week and should be considered very questionable for Sunday's Week 6 game against the Cardinals. Kareem Hunt would become a plug-and-play RB1 if Chubb isn't able to go. The Browns will likely update his status later this aftenroon.
Nick Chubb (calf) missed a second straight practice on Thursday. His status for Week 6 remains up in the air, and Friday will be a big indicator of that.
Chubb is most defintely not going to be 100% in Week 6. It will be interesting to see if the Browns rush him back in what will be a tough game against the undefeated Arizona Cardinals. If Chubb were to miss Week 6, Kareem Hunt becomes a must start RB1.
Cleveland Browns star running back Nick Chubb missed Wednesday's practice with a calf injury.
This is a new injury for Chubb, who just shredded the Los Angeles Chargers for 161 total yards. Calf injuries can be tricky, so this is a situation for fantasy managers to monitor closely. If Chubb cannot go for Week 6, Kareem Hunt will undoubtedly become locked in as an RB1 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb carried the ball 21 times for 161 yards and a touchdown in a 47-42 loss to the Chargers in Week 5. He also added a nine-yard reception in the loss.
Chubb bounced back in a big way after slow outings in Weeks 3 and 4. He continually ripped off large chunks of yardage against the Chargers and found the end zone on an impressive 52-yard run in the third quarter. Chubb will be a low-end RB1 in Week 6 against the Cardinals.
