Browns RB coach: Nick Chubb to see more pass work
Cleveland Browns running backs coach Stump Mitchell said Nick Chubb will "be used a little more in the passing game" this season.
“I think he’s going to be special like he was last year," Mitchell said of Chubb. “He’ll be used a little more in the passing game than he was last year. Nick just continues to improve on the skillset that he has, and I think he has a fantastic skillset." Chubb was targeted more once Freddie Kitchens took over for Hue Jackson last season and it sounds like the Browns want that trend to carry over into 2019. Duke Johnson's departure should also translate to more looks. Chubb finished with 20 catches on 29 targets as a rookie.
Chubb is a top-10 running back in numberFire's preseason numberFire's models expect Chubb to snag 40.1 receptions for 311.6 yards and 2.52 touchdowns this season. He's also pegged for 1,138.5 yards and 10.23 touchdowns on the ground. Chubb is a top-10 running back in our preseason fantasy rankings.
