Chubb carried 15 times for 106 yards and caught his only target for 11 additional yards during Sunday's 27-19 win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb averaged an impressive 7.1 yards per carry, although he was largely bottled up outside of an explosive 57-yard gain. He watched as Kareem Hunt received double-digit touches yet again and scored a short rushing touchdown despite lackluster results on most of his carries. Hunt's presence has certainly limited Chubb's weekly ceiling due to decreased usage, but he's still averaged 95.6 rushing yards over the last five games to put him near 1,300 for the season. He will look to thrive in next Sunday's favorable matchup against the Cardinals.

Chubb ran for 58 yards on 16 carries and added a 21-yard catch during Sunday's 20-13 loss to Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

The Steelers held Chubb to his first game with less than 90 total yards of offense since Week 1. The sophomore back has been supremely productive, but he has just one touchdown in his last six outings. Kareem Hunt hasn't eaten into Chubb's carries too much since making his debut in Week 10, but he does have two touchdowns in four games. That will be worth keeping in mind heading into Sunday's contest against Cincinnati, thought the Bengals came into Week 12 surrendering 4.8 yards per rush, making Chubb a great start under just about every circumstance.

Chubb carried 21 times for 106 yards during Sunday's 41-24 win over the Dolphins. He also caught three of four targets for 58 additional yards.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb exploited this favorable matchup to the tune of 5.0 yards per carry, as he topped the 100-yard mark for the fifth time this season. He also notched a new season high in receiving yardage thanks to a couple of big plays in the passing game. Kareem Hunt scored a short rushing touchdown in the first half, but Chubb got one of his own in the final minutes to end a four-game run without a TD. The second-year back continues to produce at a strong rate and will look to do so again next Sunday against the Steelers.

Chubb rushed 27 times for 92 yards in the Browns' 21-7 win over the Steelers on Thursday. He also failed to haul in his only target.

EDGE Analysis

Any doubts about whether Kareem Hunt would eat into Chubb's lead-back workload were put to rest for at least one more game, as the latter logged a season-high workload. Chubb frequently found running room at a premium against a stingy Steelers front, but he did enough to help keep the chains moving and crossed the 90-yard threshold for the sixth time this season. While Hunt's role figures to continue expanding over the season's remaining games, Chubb will head into a highly favorable Week 12 matchup against the Dolphins a week from Sunday as the top backfield option for Cleveland.

Chubb carried 20 times for 116 yards and caught two passes for an additional five yards during Sunday's 19-16 win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb excelled despite a tough matchup against the Buffalo defense, which he gashed to the tune of 5.8 yards per carry. Meanwhile, Kareem Hunt made his season debut, catching seven passes and receiving four carries en route to recording a combined 74 yards of his own. If this game was any indicator, the Browns plan on utilizing the unique skillsets of both of their talented backs, though Chubb should still dominate the carries on a weekly basis. He'll look to do just that in Thursday's matchup with the Steelers.

Chubb carried the ball 20 times for 65 yards and caught four of five targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 24-19 loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

While he's amassed at least 85 scrimmage yards in every game this season, Chubb had difficulty making an impact in this one -- his longest gain went for only 11 yards, and his 3.3 YPC was his worst performance of the year. The second-year RB will look to ramp things up at home next week, facing a Bills defense that just let Adrian Peterson top the century mark against it.

Chubb carried the ball 20 times for 131 yards and caught his only target for seven yards in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

His final numbers were good, but Chubb fumbled the ball twice in the first quarter, helping to dig a 17-0 hole the Browns couldn't climb out of. The second-year back has topped 100 rushing yards in three of the last four games, giving him plenty of momentum heading into next week's game in Denver.

Chubb rushed 20 times for 122 yards and two touchdowns and caught five of six targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 32-28 loss to the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb scored on a seven-yard run on the Browns' opening drive, and a major chunk of Chubb's yardage came two drives later when he ripped off a 52-yard run in the first quarter, setting up a 31-yard touchdown catch by Ricky Seals-Jones. His impressive day was topped off when the Browns took over on the Seahawks' 24-yard line after an errant punt. Chubb received the ball on two straight plays, rushing twice for 28 yards and a score. That gave the Browns the lead in the fourth quarter, but the Seahawks scored again and ended up with the win. Chubb's effectiveness remains impressive, as this was the third time in four games he recorded at least 100 scrimmage yards, and the one game he failed to do so, he finished with 99 yards.

Chubb rushed 16 times for 87 yards and caught his lone target for 12 yards in Monday night's 31-3 loss to the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb was highly productive when handed the ball, but the fact the Browns trailed significantly for most of Monday's game worked against him. Still, with help from a long run of 37 yards, Chubb again tallied at least 85 scrimmage yards, as he's done in all five games so far this season. A model of consistency on a Cleveland team lacking just that thus far, Chubb will look to make another strong impact Week 6 versus the Seahawks, but their sixth-ranked run defense makes his matchup less than ideal on paper.

Chubb rushed 20 times for 165 yards and three touchdowns while adding three catches for 18 yards on four targets in Sunday's 40-25 win over Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Chubb came alive in the second half, scoring touchdowns from 14 and two yards out in the third quarter to turn a 10-10 tie into a 24-10 lead before exploding for an 88-yard score in the fourth. He had a short touchdown vultured by Dontrell Hilliard late in the fourth quarter, but Chubb's fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned about that considering the game was pretty much out of reach by then and Chubb had already done more than enough to make them happy. Finally living up to his lofty draft day valuation, Chubb should be fired up as an RB1 against the 49ers in Week 5.
