No. 2: Have 11 total touchdowns
For the second goal for Chubb for the Cleveland Browns this upcoming season, it’d be noteworthy for him to have 11 touchdowns. Through his first two NFL seasons, Chubb had 10 and eight touchdowns, respectively.
That was nothing to sneeze at, and it clearly demonstrated Chubb will get his share of paydirt trips. Chubb having eight rushing touchdowns in 2018 on only 192 rushes was a very healthy clip, too.
Looking at 2020 for Chubb, though, it would be nice for him to set a career-high in total touchdowns with 11. Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook ate well in Stefanski’s system in 2019, with a comparable 303 touches in 14 games active (leading to 13 touchdowns) to Chubb’s 334 touches in a full 16 games active.
From Chubb’s standpoint, though, if there was one rushing area one would like to see more productivity was getting in the end zone more, inside the five or so. Now, it was absolutely not all his doing, given often poor offensive line play in those instances, in addition to Kitchens.
But with Jack Conklin and seemingly Jedrick Wills Jr., assuming after fairly early on he should be able to do pretty well adjusting to a move to left tackle with his talent level, helping, to go with J.C. Tretter and Joel Bitonio, it’d be meaningful for Chubb to have more success. That’s again near inside the five or so/near the goal line more than in 2019.
Plus, Chubb, one would think, even factoring in Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry and Austin Hooper (whether or not David Njoku is around) and perhaps rookie Harrison Bryant a bit, could have a few receiving touchdowns in the red zone, after dump-offs/runs after catch. He had two receiving TDs in 2018.
So again, if Chubb hit 11 total touchdowns, that’d likely show he’s had some more redzone success. Albeit the dude is capable of home runs, too.
Lastly, the third goal for Chubb has to do with his receiving.
