Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 5 PPR Rankings

Nick Chubb Note

Chubb has been in his bag this year. As the RB2 in fantasy, he has been a near lock for 20-plus touches and over 100 rushing yards per game. He's seen at least 20 touches in every game and hit the century mark on the ground in three of four games. He's averaged 21.8 touches and 124.1 total yards per game. He remains arguably the most talented rusher of the football in the NFL. He ranks ninth in yards after contact per attempt, first in missed tackles forced (the closest RB behind him has ten less MTF), and fourth in PFF's elusive rating (minimum 15 carries). Chubb could break Week 5 against this pitiful Bolts' run defense. Over the last three weeks, they have bled out the third-highest explosive run rate, tenth-highest rush EPA, and the third-most rushing yards per game. Chubb is a top-three back.

Kareem Hunt Note

As the team has leaned heavier on Chubb through the first four games, Hunt has seen his work scaled back just a tad with 14.3 touches and 68.3 total yards per game. He has still been a solid back with his efficiency numbers and for us in fantasy as the RB21. Hunt is 25th in yards after contact per attempt and 16th in PFF's elusive rating (minimum 15 carries). He could easily find his way inside the top 20 backs this week against a Chargers defense that's been gashed on the ground and via the passing game with backs. The Bolts are 31st in DVOA against receiving backs allowing the fourth-most receptions and seventh-most receiving yards. Hunt is a low-end RB2/high-end RB3.
