Nick Chubb Fantasy Outlook
You should expect a big year from Nick Chubb in 2020.
His 2019 year put him on the map. 298 carries for 1,494 and 8 TDs. Good stuff by Mr. Chubb. He helps Georgia make its claim as RBU.
Chubb will see his 4th new head coach in only his 3rd season in the NFL. 2018 was Hue Jackson and Greg Williams. 2019 was led by Freddie Kitchens and now Kevin Stefanski is the head man.
Stefanski has said he will let Alex Van Pelt call plays to start and see if he wants to take over after the preseason.
Stefanski has coached a number of positions. All of his NFL experience comes from Minnesota where he was the QBs coach, RBs coach, TEs coach and then OC for some of 2018 and all of 2019.
Last season he helped Dalvin Cook have a career year running the ball but I expect he will try to have a balanced running and passing attack.
Alex Van Pelt played QB and has been a QBs coach almost all of his career. For the past two seasons he has been the QBs coach in Cincinnati and before that he was Green Bay’s QBs coach from 2014-2017.
I think one should expect Cleveland to be balanced. Expect a ton of play action passes, but in order for play action to be effective you have to run the ball well.
Cleveland Browns Offensive Line 2020
Projected Starting Line: LT: Jedrick Wills, LG: Joel Bitonio, C: JC Tretter, RG: Wyatt Teller, RT: Jack Conklin
Both the tackles are new to the Cleveland roster. Wills was a first round pick in the 2020 Draft and Conklin signed a huge deal in free agency. Both tackles are similar combining physicality and athleticism. This should be a significant upgrade for the Browns.
The middle of the line is all returning starters. Bitonio has earned second team all pro honors and made the pro bowl each of the past two seasons.
Tretter and Teller are the weaker two of the unit. Teller started 2019 as a backup but did move to full time starter in Week 9.
This unit has made the most significant upgrade in the 2020 offseason. Great job by the Browns front office addressing this important need.
The fruit will be seen this season from the Browns making OL a priority.
Nick Chubb Strength of Schedule
The AFC North is known for its tough defense. Add in the fact that they play the NFC East in 2020 which had two top 10 defenses in 2019 and that is a tough slate for Nick Chubb.
The Browns bye week is week 9 which is perfect. Great time for rest and gives fantasy owners time to plan for Chubb’s absence.
The Browns have only 2 primetime games this season. In week 2 the Browns host the Bengals on Thursday night and week 14 they host the Ravens on Monday Night Football.
Nick Chubb Fantasy Playoff Schedule
Week 14 will be a tough game at Baltimore. Week 15 should be much easier at the Giants. Week 16 the Browns stay at MetLife Stadium but will face the Jets before a regular season finale at home vs Pittsburgh.
The Ravens, Jets and Steelers all finished in the top 10 during 2019 for total defense.
