There are some who are panicking after the weak performance from Chubb in the opener, though if you were here, you knew how tough of a matchup it was going to be. Let's be real, though. 74 yards on 16 carries isn't a bad game, though him losing a goal-line touch to Dontrell Hilliard. The Jets run defense was no walk-in-the-park last year either, but under Gregg Williams, the scheme has changed. We watched Frank Gore and Devin Singletary combine for 90 yards on 15 carries last week, and the Bills have very few threats to worry about in the pass-game. The same can't be said about Beckham, Landry, Higgins, and Njoku. The Jets are also dealing with a lot of injuries, as they lost starting middle linebacker Avery Williamson in the preseason, and now have injuries to defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, safety Jamal Adams, and linebacker C.J. Mosley. We don't know who will/won't play right now, but it's clear they're banged up on their front seven. Chubb should be played as a low-end RB1 who's as safe as they come.
