Chubb rushed 13 times for 69 yards and caught two of five targets for four yards in Sunday's 22-17 loss to the Chiefs in the AFC divisional round.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb was bottled up in the first half, mustering just 12 yards on five carries and three targets. He finally got going on Cleveland's first touchdown drive in the third quarter, ripping off runs of 23 and 18 yards on consecutive plays to set up a Jarvis Landry touchdown catch. Chubb also converted a 4th-and-1 later in the quarter, reestablishing himself as the leading figure in the Browns' offense. Even with Kareem Hunt -- who scored a fourth-quarter rushing touchdown -- siphoning off a sizable chunk of touches in Cleveland's backfield, Chubb has established himself as one of the premier running backs in the league with consecutive seasons over 1,000 rushing yards and over 5.0 yards per carry.

Chubb ran for 76 yards on 18 carries and hauled in all four of his targets for 69 yards and a receiving touchdown during Sunday's 48-37 wild-card win against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Having paced the NFL with 4.0 yards per carry after contact this season, Chubb netted his second consecutive 1,000-yard rushing campaign despite missing Weeks 5 through 8 because of a sprained MCL in his right knee. He also entered the playoffs with seven rushing TDs over his final six regular-season outings. After chalking up 108 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries against Pittsburgh last Sunday afternoon, Chubb rumbled for 17 yards on his opening carry of the wild-card round, following that up with a 20-yard scamper on the next play. He also made a vital contribution in the passing game, with his 40-yard receiving score in the fourth quarter shifting the tide back in Cleveland's favor for good. A divisional-round matchup against the Chiefs offers a challenge, as Kansas City held opponents to 90 or fewer rushing yards in five of its final seven regular-season games.

Chubb carried the ball 14 times for 108 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb topped 1,000 rushing yards on the season with his third carry of the game -- a 47-yard touchdown. That feat is even more impressive given that Chubb missed four contests with a knee injury, beginning in Week 5. He closed the season strong upon his return, topping 100 total yards in all but two of his last eight efforts. He'll play a key role in the Browns' potential playoff success and will continue to lead the team's backfield.

Chubb rushed 11 times for 28 yards and a touchdown while catching all five of his targets for 38 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb was bottled up in the first half, mustering only six yards on eight carries as Cleveland fell into a 13-3 hole. The team largely abandoned the run while playing catch-up after halftime, but Chubb managed to salvage his day with a one-yard touchdown late in the third quarter. He also set a new season high with five catches. Chubb should see a heavier workload on the ground in Week 17 as the Browns try to break a 17-year playoff drought against Pittsburgh.

Chubb rushed 15 times for 50 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb punched in a one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to salvage what would have been a mediocre outing in a favorable matchup (the Giants entered ranking 20th in points allowed to opposing running backs). It was the first time the star back was held under 4.0 yards per carry in a game this season (3.3), which is not surprising given that he entered the contest with a league-best mark of 5.9 yards per tote. The fact that Sunday's modest output is considered a down performance is a great indicator of the elite level Chubb has been performing at in 2020. The 24-year-old will look to break the 1,000-yard mark in rushing yards (10 starts) when the Browns take on the AFC version of New York's football club Sunday.

Chubb rushed 17 times for 82 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 47-42 loss to the Ravens. He also caught both of his targets for 21 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb set the tone for the Browns in the first half, scoring from seven yards to cap Cleveland's opening drive before punching it in from 14 yards prior to halftime. The tailback kept it going in the second half, although teammate Kareem Hunt scored twice when Chubb came out. Despite Hunt's presence, Chubb has been dominant this season, and he's been particularly hot lately. Over his last five outings, the 24-year-old is averaging nearly 110 rushing yards and has scored five times. That form should instill further confidence in Chubb despite facing an improved Giants defense in Week 15.

Chubb rushed the ball 18 times for 80 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Titans. He also chipped in one reception for 26 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb's workload was a bit lighter than past weeks as the Browns jumped out to a 38-7 lead. He still managed to make the most of his opportunity, highlighted by a run of 29 yards as well as a one-yard rushing touchdown. Also positive was Chubb's work as a receiver, as he converted a screen pass into a 26-yard gain midway through the first quarter. Despite missing four games due to a knee injury, Chubb now has seven touchdowns and 874 total yards. He'll run into a tough Ravens defense in Week 14.

Chubb carried the ball 19 times for 144 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against Jacksonville. He added three receptions for 32 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb averaged 7.6 yards per carry on the strength of five rushes that went for more than 10 yards. He added to his big day with a one-yard rushing score for his sixth touchdown of the season. Uncharacteristically, Chubb also chipped in a significant amount as a receiver, highlighted by receptions of 14 and 13 yards. Though Kareem Hunt continues to cut into Chubb's workload, Chubb has topped 100 rushing yards in all three of his contests since returning from a knee injury. He'll draw a matchup against the Titans in Week 13.

Chubb carried 20 times for 114 yards during Sunday's 22-17 win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb was bottled up in the early going but padded his stat line quite a bit with an explosive 54-yard run in the fourth quarter. He was held out of the end zone and wasn't targeted in the passing game, giving him a respectable yet mundane fantasy line despite the strong effort in a tough matchup. Chubb has surpassed the 100-yard mark in four of his six games while also scoring five touchdowns, and he should thrive on the ground next Sunday against a hapless Jaguars defense.

Chubb (knee) rushed 19 times for 126 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 10-7 win over Houston. He failed to catch his lone target.

EDGE Analysis

In his first action since Week 4, Chubb was involved from the get-go, rushing four times for 19 yards to help set up a field goal on the opening drive. Those were the only points scored by either team until Chubb extended Cleveland's lead to 10-0 with a nine-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter. Kareem Hunt was the preferred option with the Browns running out the clock on the final drive and finished with 132 scrimmage yards on 19 carries and three catches, but this game was further proof that it's possible for both of Cleveland's running backs to be productive simultaneously, even on a modest day for the offense as a whole. Last season's second-leading rusher has been fantastic when healthy, as Chubb has 461 yards and five touchdown on the ground in less than five full games played this season. He'll look to keep rolling against the Eagles in Week 11.
