Some are worried about Chubb due to the signing of Kareem Hunt this offseason, but you shouldn't be one of them. Hunt has an eight-game suspension that will allow Chubb to run with the job, as he did down the stretch last year. The Browns invested a high second-round pick on Chubb and he's done nothing but impress. He's the starter and an RB1 in fantasy.

I loved how Chubb closed the season and he should be in the RB1 discussion for the first part of the year. As long as he starts the season strong, he should maintain that level. The risk in drafting him in the first or second round is that RB Kareem Hunt is suspended for the first eight games. Hunt would be a necessary handcuff for Chubb if Chubb were to go down with injury or lose his starting job due to ineffective play.

Some are thinking he should be higher. Maybe they're right, but I'm good with him right here. I want to see his role in this crowded backfield first.
