Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Well, we knew Nick Chubb was going to be good this year, but we didn't expect him to rumble for two touchdowns against a pretty solid run defense in Kansas City right out of the gates. Chubb finished with 83 yards on the ground and averaged 5.5 YPC. Fantasy managers that have Chubb have to be feeling pretty good about their investment right now and it's only going to get better this week against the Houston Texans run defense. While they didn't surrender a ton of yardage last week to James Robinson and Carlos Hyde, the Texans do not have the type of defense that is going to be able to contain this Browns run game. The offensive line looks dominant in front of him and Chubb legitimately could run for over 200 yards in this one. I'm not projecting that, but it's certainly in the realm of possibilities. He can be viewed as a top-5 option this week.Jonathan Taylor didn't exactly accomplish a ton on the ground last week against Seattle - only 3.3. YPC - but it doesn't quite matter when he sees seven targets in the passing game. That was the highest total Taylor has seen in his short NFL career and it appears as though Wentz is going to continue to target the RBs heavily in this offense. The Rams have been known as a tough matchup for opposing RBs, but they just watched David Montgomery and the makeshift Bears offensive line rumble over them for 100+ yards rushing. With the Colts offensive line, Taylor should get back to averaging his usual YPC numbers and the potential for five or more targets is absolutely still there in this matchup. Trust Taylor in your lineup as a top-10 option.
Pat Fitzmaurice

The Cleveland running game is a machine. Chubb plunged into the end zone twice in Week 1 and has now scored at least one touchdown in seven consecutive regular-season games. He's scored 14 times in his last 13 regular-season games. Hunt had a touchdown against the Chiefs, too. He now has 12 TDs in his last 16 games. The Texans gave up a league-high 2,564 rushing yards last year, to the tune of 5.2 yards per carry. This is a golden spot for the Cleveland running backs.The one positive thing about the Colts' offense in Week 1 was that Taylor and Hines both had respectable fantasy performances even though the Colts' offense was mostly toothless. There were fears that with check-down king Philip Rivers no longer at the controls of the Indy offense, there might not be as many targets for the Colts' backs. Well, Taylor had seven targets (establishing a career high) and six catches (tying a career high) for 60 yards. Hines caught 6 of 8 targets for 48 yards. Add the rushing numbers and Taylor totaled 116 yards from scrimmage, Hines 82. Also encouraging for fantasy managers who invested in Taylor or Hines: They were the only two Indianapolis running backs to take a snap. Marlon Mack didn't play. The Rams play rugged run defense, but Taylor is still a low-end RB1 for Week 2, and Hines is a low-end RB3 in half-point PPR but a mid-range RB3 in full-point PPR.

 There's no reason to be scared off Taylor because of the matchup with the Rams, as LA surrendered 120 rushing yards in Week 1 (fifth-most in the NFL). Taylor logged 17 carries and six receptions against the Seahawks last week, so he provides a sturdy floor and high ceiling. Consider him a top-5 play.

The Texans solid Week 1 game was likely an outlier due to drawing Jacksonville and Chubb should be an elite RB1 at home in a great matchup.Taylor had 23 touches for 116 yards in the season opener. Even against a tough Rams D, he should maintain RB2 value with that workload.
