Chuba Hubbard, CAR, @ DAL
The injury to Christian McCaffrey will result in the rookie Hubbard getting a shot at starting for the Panthers. The matchup of Dallas is a solid one as it should allow Hubbard to get plenty of looks as he does his best to shine in the place of one of the league’s best.
James Robinson, JAX, @ CIN (Thurs.)
Robinson was given the chance this past week to get a full workload, giving his best output of the season. He showed last season that he has all the ability to be one of the best in fantasy so here’s top hoping that last week was the beginning of Robinson shining for the remainder of the season.
Kareem Hunt, CLE, @ MIN
Hunt had himself a game last week and should do the same this week in what has the makings to be a shootout with the Minnesota Vikings. While he may be the second running back on his teams, the passing game work that he gets continuously delivers and should get him to RB2 territory.
Saquon Barkley, NYG, @ NO
Barkley finally scored a touchdown this week, aiding him to a solid total for the first time since 2019 really. While it’s unlikely you are able to sit him, we do believe that a matchup with the Saints might be what leaves Barkley with a poor performance. More of a beware than flat-out sit here.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire, KC, @ PHI
Edwards-Helaire rushed for 100 yards in the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3. That was a pleasant sign after the week prior saw him have a minuscule outing. The problem for this matchup outside of the Philadelphia Eagles have a top-of-the-line rush defense is that he is still not getting touchdowns. If the yards aren’t there next week, it’s tough to think he will do anything else other than being a flex at best.
Damien Harris, NE, vs. TB
Harris and the Patriots were not able to get anything going on the ground in Week 3, painting an image of what should be another bad week for the running back against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He won’t have too many openings and should be on the bench.
