Nick Chubb Week 5 Outlook - Chargers at Browns

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 6th 2022, 1:05pm EDT

Chubb has been in his bag this year. As the RB2 in fantasy, he has been a near lock for 20-plus touches and over 100 rushing yards per game. He's seen at least 20 touches in every game and hit the century mark on the ground in three of four games. He's averaged 21.8 touches and 124.1 total yards per game. He remains arguably the most talented rusher of the football in the NFL. He ranks ninth in yards after contact per attempt, first in missed tackles forced (the closest RB behind him has ten less MTF), and fourth in PFF's elusive rating (minimum 15 carries). Chubb could break Week 5 against this pitiful Bolts' run defense. Over the last three weeks, they have bled out the third-highest explosive run rate, tenth-highest rush EPA, and the third-most rushing yards per game. Chubb is a top-three back.
