RB: Nick Chubb

Nick Chubb (calf) is out for Week 6 against the Cardinals.

Chubb never had a shot to play after missing practice all week. His absence -- hopefully the one-week variety -- makes Kareem Hunt an RB1 option this week against an exploitable Arizona run defense. Hunt returned to practice Friday after being held out with a wrist and knee issue. In four games with Chubb sidelined in 2020, Hunt averaged 16.3 carries and 3.5 targets per game. He should see most (or all) of Cleveland's goal line work too. Rookie RB Demetric Felton could see some passing game work with Hunt presumably taking over as the Browns' primary early-down back. Felton has six catches on seven targets for 76 yards and a touchdown this year.
