Running Back: Nick Chubb, Cleveland Browns
@ Cincinnati Bengals, Sunday 1:00pm
Fanduel Price: $7,500
The Nick Chubb show has arrived in Cleveland and it has the Browns offense running at a high level. Chubb has shown a combination of big-play ability while also being able to grind out the tough yards.
Cleveland has made him the focal point of their offense in recent weeks and it has helped stabilize their attack. Obviously, it wouldn’t make sense to go away from that strategy.
The Browns face a Cincinnati Bengals defense that is allowing a league worst 153 rushing yards per game. I fully expect the Browns to get the ball into the hands of Chubb and allow him to do his thing.
Chubb’s fanduel price seems a little low to me based on the matchup and his recent production.
Running Back: Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens
vs. Oakland Raiders, Sunday 1:00pm
Fanduel Price: $5,300
This is a complete bargain play here with Gus Edwards. He’s coming off a breakout performance and now faces an Oakland Raiders team that is allowing over 150 rushing yards per game. This is a chance for Edwards to seize the starting job in Baltimore.
Putting Edwards in your lineup will allow you to spend a ton more at other positions. I was really able to splurge at wide receiver in this lineup.
