Here are your Week 10 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Start.
Nick Chubb, Cleveland Browns vs. Buffalo Bills
This one should be a no-brainer but there are some concerns surrounding the Browns feature running back. First of all, Kareem Hunt is back in the picture but even if he gets 10 touches, he’s not taking the majority away from Chubb. He’ll probably take Dontrell Hilliard’s role as the third down back on passing downs. He’ll also give Chubb a breather. That said, some are still concerned by the defensive matchup.
Yes, the Bills’ secondary is good, one of the best in the league and is the reason this defense is as good as it is. However, from a run stopping standpoint, it’s below average. They’ve allowed eight different running backs score against them (six rushing, two catching) and in the last three games, you had the ancient one, Adrian Peterson run over 100 yards on them, Miles Sanders and Jordan Howard both scored against them and each nearly reached 100 yards, and finally the Dolphins had a running back committee that ran for 94 yards off of 23 carries and scored once. The Dolphins, folks. Chubb should feast on the Bills and will keep his RB1 status, Hunt or not Hunt.
