Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 4 Half PPR Rankings

Nick Chubb Note

Chubb remains a strong RB1, essentially a lock for 20 touches per game. He's averaged 22 touches and 123 total yards. He remains one of the league's most explosive rushers, ranking tenth in yards after contact per attempt and third in PFF's elusive rating (minimum ten carries). The Falcons' run defense has deteriorated as they now have the highest rush EPA and third-highest rush success rate allowed. Chubb is tied with Hunt with a 44.6% route run rate over the last two weeks. Even a few targets like he received in Week 2 (three targets, 26 receiving yards) raise his floor and ceiling.

Kareem Hunt Note

Hunt is a rock solid RB2 (RB15 in fantasy points per game). He's averaged 15 touches and 68.3 total yards. He's outpaced Chubb in target share, route run rate, and red zone usage. None of those should shock anyone that's been paying attention over the last few seasons. This week, the bulk of Hunt's value will have to come on the ground and in the red zone because Atlanta has been top-shelf against running backs in the passing game. They are 10th in DVOA with the eighth-fewest receptions, and fifth-fewest receiving yards surrendered to running backs.
