Had Hubbard entered the NFL Draft a year earlier, he may have gone in the second round. But that's not what happened. He returned to school and had a weak 2020 season, leading him to fall to the end of the fourth round. He's certainly not getting much playing time with Christian McCaffrey healthy, but he should be the clear-cut handcuff, which had plenty of value last year in this offense (Mike Davis). Unfortunately, the Panthers offensive line continues to get worse, and it's tough to say Sam Darnold is an upgrade at quarterback, making Hubbard a mediocre handcuff in fantasy.
