Chubb's touches and yardage totals have both dipped a bit over the last two games, but he's continued to find the end zone with regularity. He's now scored eight touchdowns in seven games since he became the Browns' lead back. Duke Johnson is still a non-factor in this offense, even in the passing game, so Chubb owners can still expect around 20 touches most weeks. He'll be a mid-to-low end RB1 for a trip to Denver on Saturday.

DEN has not yielded a rush TD to a RB in 7 straight, but Chubb could break that runPanthers have allowed two TDs to opposing WRs in 4 of past 6
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Thomas has gone three games without a touchdown and nine of his last 10 games without reaching 100 yards. His luck could change, as the Panthers have allowed 90 yards and a touchdown to six receivers in the last five games. New Orleans's top wideout maintains a stellar 28.4 percent target share and 86.4 percent catch rate. The season's WR4 is a top-shelf play even if September's earth-shattering upside has dissipated.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Denver is 16th against fantasy running backs, Chubb has RB1 upside on the road this week. Carolina is just 24th against fantasy wide receivers, Thomas should have a monster game this week.
