Is Nick Chubb enjoying in 7 days ten?

Since Chubb is reportedly vaccinated, he’ll have to have transform in two destructive COVID tests 24 hours apart ahead of Sunday in buy to play in 7 days ten. As we are 5 times absent from Sunday, there is a good deal of time, but we are not able to speculate on whether he’ll be available just nonetheless (however we’re optimistic). For now, pencil him into your lineups, but have a worthwhile backup prepared to go. Prospects are, we’ll know Chubb’s status nicely in advance of kickoff, so this should not occur down to the wire on Sunday.

What we can do is determine out how his absence would affect other gamers if he are not able to play. Demetric Felton has also been put on the reserve/COVID checklist, so this sets up to be a further healthier dose of D’Ernest Johnson if both of those are out. Nevertheless, we are not able to anticipate him to smash like he did past time from Denver when he took on a workhorse function.

New England is just an ordinary defense from fantasy RBs, but they have not allowed a 100-garden rusher all year, and just two managing backs have scored a speeding touchdown from them. Rather, managing back success has generally been found through the air, and we’re not assured Johnson is certain ample volume in the passing game to take edge of that. Even Chubb could have a challenging time in this matchup. Considerably like Derrick Henry, he is a throwback RB who does tiny in the passing game.

All that said, given the scarcity of the position, you might have to start out Johnson if Chubb is out, but the bust prospective is significant. You however have time to incorporate a managing back in waivers if you have to have a backup prepare for Chubb or do not trust Johnson. We have a handful of options detailed in our ideal waiver pickups for 7 days ten.

If Chubb is in, he is a fringe RB1 in regular and mid-tier RB2 in PPR. Johnson figures to be a reduced-conclusion RB2 if he will get the start out based mostly on volume by yourself.
