The Cleveland Browns have a pretty simple offensive formula, run the hell out of the ball. That will be the game plan this week when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles, and it means both Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are very attractive options for fantasy football this week.
Fantasy Football analysis: Browns RBs Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt
Chubb, who hadn’t been in action since the first week of October, returned to action last week. He carried the ball 19 times for 126 yards against the Texans, adding a touchdown. That was the third time this season he’s racked up more than 100 yards in a game. Hunt had a great outing in that one as well, with 104 rushing yards and another 28 receiving.
The Eagles have yet to allow a running back to accumulate triple digit yardage in a single game this year, but they have allowed nine rushing touchdowns to the position, including two last week by the Giants. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if Chubb is the first player to break the 100-yard mark against Philadelphia this season, but even if he doesn’t, both him and Hunt are great plays this week.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt.
