The bye weeks are upon us — 20 teams have their byes the next four weeks. Which bench stash who hasn’t emerged yet should fantasy teams continue to be patient with, and NOT drop in the coming weeks? Why him?
Nick Chubb RB CLE. He has not had many chances to start in fantasy leagues so far this year but now comes into the limelight with the trade of Carlos Hyde to JAX. Chubb faces some tough defenses, but the Browns are committed to the run. He can come off your bench and be your RB1 now with a predicted 12 points per game for the rest of the season. That will be mainly from rushing yards and TDs as Duke Johnson has the catches out of the backfield wrapped up.
