Chubb showed everyone what he can do when he gets a significant workload this past week and he shredded the Cincinnati Bengals defense. This Washington run defense is a slightly better unit than Cincinnati, so we can't expect multiple touchdowns again from Chubb. However, he's still a solid RB2 start in this matchup with upside.Brown is the only Ravens wideout that you should feel comfortable plugging into your lineup this week and he could be in line for a huge game. The Ravens are going to have to throw the ball more than they have the past couple of weeks, which means more opportunity for Brown. He should see 6-8 targets in this game and he always has the potential to find the end zone. He's a solid WR2 start in this shootout matchup.

We've now seen two different gamescripts for the Browns, and they've given us clarity on how the backfield will be handled under Kevin Stefanski. Chubb is the preferred early-down option, especially in positive gamescripts, while Hunt is the preferred pass-catching back who'll get double-digit carries if they run the ball 25-plus times. Through two games, this backfield has averaged 32.0 touches per game. Funny enough, the Vikings running backs averaged 32.5 under Kevin Stefanski last year. Against Washington, we should see them rack up the carries, though there have been warning signs about efficiency in this matchup. Under Ron Rivera, this unit has allowed just 0.56 PPR points per opportunity to running backs, which ranks as the second-lowest mark in football through two weeks. A big part of that is due to them being one of just four teams who've yet to allow a touchdown to running backs. Now, to be fair, they played a Miles Sanders-less Eagles team in Week 1 and then Kyler Murray rushed for two touchdowns in Week 2, so we can't automatically assume they're rock stars that you can't run the ball against. Chubb and Hunt are tied, leading the league with 4.4 yards after contact, so getting to them isn't all you have to do; you still must bring them down. In a game they should be able to run the ball 30-plus times, you have to start these two. Chubb is the preferred option due to the positive gamescript and has double the carries Hunt does inside the five-yard-line, so start him as a low-end RB1. Hunt is still a fine backend RB2 play given the projected gamescript.It felt like we hit the rewind button to 2019 last week when the Ravens receivers totaled just 14 targets during the game. Though six of them went to Brown, they amounted to just five catches for 42 scoreless yards. There are a lot of people who believe that the Chiefs are always ahead and that it leads to a lot of passing attempts for the other team, which means a lot of fantasy points for wide receivers. That's not true. Did you know the Chiefs allowed the fewest yards in the league to wide receivers last year? Will Fuller's 112 yards in Week 1 was just the second time in 18 games they've allowed a 100-yard receiver. Keep in mind there have been 15 wide receivers who've seen at least eight targets during that span. Now, with that being said, they were already down one starting cornerback to suspension, but they were also down another starting cornerback last week, as Charvarius Ward did not play through his fractured hand. There's no guarantee he plays on Monday night. That would mean fourth-round rookie L'Jarius Sneed and last year's sixth-round pick Rashad Fenton would be starting on the perimeter. That duo has allowed 25 receptions for 283 yards and three touchdowns on 43 targets over their short careers. The matchup is better than it typically is. You should trot Brown out there as a low-end WR2 with some upside in a projected shootout.

Washington has allowed the fewest points to fantasy running backs, but that should change this week when they take on a very tough Browns running game.Kansas City is 5th against fantasy wide receivers through 2 games, Brown is a boom / bust deep threat in a game that could turn into a shootout on MNF.
