Well, we knew Nick Chubb was going to be good this year, but we didn't expect him to rumble for two touchdowns against a pretty solid run defense in Kansas City right out of the gates. Chubb finished with 83 yards on the ground and averaged 5.5 YPC. Fantasy managers that have Chubb have to be feeling pretty good about their investment right now and it's only going to get better this week against the Houston Texans run defense. While they didn't surrender a ton of yardage last week to James Robinson and Carlos Hyde, the Texans do not have the type of defense that is going to be able to contain this Browns run game. The offensive line looks dominant in front of him and Chubb legitimately could run for over 200 yards in this one. I'm not projecting that, but it's certainly in the realm of possibilities. He can be viewed as a top-5 option this week.
