Week 13 Rankings
Nick Chubb Note
Nick Chubb photo 4. Nick Chubb RB - (at TEN)
Chubb has averaged a league-high 4.43 yards after contact, which has accounted for 72.7 percent of his yardage. No other running back with more than 60 carries has averaged more than 3.70 yards after contact. Knowing that, it shouldn't come as a surprise that he ranks second in the NFL of 15-plus-yard runs. Think about that... he's missed four games and he still ranks just one 15-yard-run behind Derrick Henry. Not by coincidence, just 11 of his carries this year have accounted for 44.9 percent of his rushing totals. The Titans have allowed seven 20-plus yard runs this year, which is essentially toward the middle of the pack. They've allowed 4.29 yards per carry and 92.7 yards per game to running backs, so it's tough to say it's a highly-efficient matchup, but the fact that their opponents average a massive 68.0 plays per game have allowed enough volume to make them an above average matchup. Running backs have averaged 26.5 touches per game against them, which isn't the greatest when Hunt is getting 43 percent of the touches since Chubb's return to the lineup. The reason both have been somewhat successful is due to the fact that they've combined for 35.7 touches per game over the last three weeks. Even knocking that down to 30 for this game wouldn't be good for Chubb, who has very limited involvement in the passing game. He's one of the best 1-2 down backs in the league, but we have to take weighted volume into consideration, which knocks him into the low-end RB1 conversation. As for Hunt, he was highly touted as the pass-catching option out of this backfield, but he hasn't totaled more than three receptions since back in Week 1, and he hasn't topped 28 receiving yards all season. Despite having more than double the red zone carries that Chubb does (33 to 16), Hunt has four rushing touchdowns to Chubb's six. In terms of weighted opportunity, Hunt is on par with someone like Ronald Jones. He should be considered a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 who needs to start finding the end zone at a higher rate.

Jarvis Landry Note

Landry was able to produce in a big way in week 12 against the Jags secondary. He saw 11 targets, while the next highest total on the team was three! Landry has another great matchup here against the Titans secondary and he can be plugged back into your lineup as a safe low-end WR3.

Austin Hooper Note

Hooper only saw two targets last week, but he made them count by finding the end zone. The minimal target share is concerning moving forward, but there aren't many tight ends who are seeing a significant and consistent target share every week. Hooper's worth plugging into your lineup again as a low-end TE1.
