Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Rest of Season Rankings

Nick Chubb Note

Chubb missed Sunday's Week 6 game against the Cardinals due to a calf injury, but Kareem Hunt (who entered the game with multiple other ailments) exited with a calf injury of his own. As of Sunday night, it's unclear what to expect for Cleveland's backfield availability in Week 7. However, Hunt's injury appeared to be serious. Chubb could receive career-best usage for however long he's sidelined for. As of now he appears to be the healthier RB.

Kareem Hunt Note

Hunt is running a bit hot when it comes to touchdown "luck" entering Week 6. Fantasy managers should expect the rushing scores to regress. Ultimately, though, Hunt's Combination of passing-down work, change of pace role, and functioning as the "closer" ensures that he'll receive touches no matter the game script.

Jarvis Landry Note

Landry isn't an exciting player to write about, but in a post-OBJ world his role on the Browns certainly has value. The former Dolphin has recorded a 25% target share in all three of his games since returning from injury, but his Week 9 box score was a dud. Don't expect many ceiling games, but he profiles as a strong floor play in PPR leagues in the second half.

Baker Mayfield Note

He might not become the superstar we once though he could be, but Mayfield was downright good last year. Accounting for strength of schedule, he had the 10th best QBR in 2020. Additionally, Mayfield got better as the season moved along, finishing with a 15:2 TD:INT ratio over his final eight games. Cleveland began passing more down the stretch as well, which would mean more fantasy-viable weeks for Mayfield should the trend extend in to '21.
