The electric duo of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are staking their claim to being one of, if not the best backfield duos in the NFL and that was on full display in the Cleveland Browns’ 35-30 win over division rival Cincinnati last Thursday.

The dangerous tandem are looking to wreak more havoc when lining up against the Washington Football Team on Sunday.

Fantasy Football analysis: Browns RBs Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt

Both guys gave a major boost to the Browns’ offense last Thursday as Chubb carried the load on the ground with 124 yards on 22 touches and two touchdowns. Hunt was able to squeeze 86 yards and a score from just 10 carries but also proved deadly as a receiving option in the redzone with both of his receptions being touchdowns.

Their knack for rattling off explosive plays is also notable as NFL.com writer Nick Shook pointed out, Chubb leads the league in runs of 10+ yards with eigth while Hunt ranks not too far behind him with six. They’ll look to keep this going against a Washington defense giving up 4.4 yards per carry.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Both are definite starts in any league this week.
